Startup idea #6ec4e42a-28cc-4425-9ebc-61ac8e224580: Adventurer’s gear for geeky hikers

I’m going to start “calling” my startup ideas in the same way Andy Dwyer calls band names.

So, first up: it’s like REI for D&D players.

We’d sell a “basic adventurer’s kit” that came with iron rations, wineskin, torches, 50 feet of rope, etc.

Then you could get “class specialization” kits, for example:

  • Rogue: contains lockpicks, a pack of cards, and invisible ink.
  • Wizard: parchment, ink, and a dozen small vials of reagents, orb.
  • Cleric: bandages, salves, holy symbol.

We could also offer Tolkien-esque maps of hiking areas and fancy medieval-looking bags/knives/hiking boots. See what carrying 40lbs of gear into the woods actually feels like! Then get it as a gift for a friend.

Gotta get the gear.

Gotta get the gear.
