With summer upon us, most of the big TV shows on hiatus, and a good portion of geek-friendly movies already released, this is the perfect time of year to dust off your DM screens and drag out your character sheets for some old school gaming. And what’s a good tabletop roleplaying geekfest without a whole bunch of obscurely geometrical hunks of plastic with numbers on them? In celebration of old-school gaming and the creativity that goes along with it, here’s a collection of twelve awesome fan-made dice bags — one for each side of your marbelized translucent dodecahedron.
