COMMUNITY SUBMISSION: 8-BIT GREETING CARDS
If playing 8-bit games taught us anything it’s that it’s a dangerous world out there. But in real life you can’t always find a heart in a bush or by breaking your neighbor’s pot. So before you go on your next adventure together, make sure you give your partner the best item in the game of life.

Just about every product/design with this theme gives me that sloppy sort of smile.

WOODEN HYLIAN SHIELD FROM LEGEND OF ZELDA

Paulo Vinícius D. Horstma (aka clefrayearth) posted these photos of his latest woodworking project: a life-sized wooden Hylian Shield from Legend of Zelda!  Paulo is one talented craftsman after looking at the process behind this amazing craft project.  

It’s as impressive as the LEGO Hylian Shield from this year’s Brickcon that we posted back in October.  I wonder how much he would charge to make a wooden shield to go with the wooden Master Sword I have from Trevor Basset.

I’m sure I’m going to flail any moment now. And then swoon.

Dungeons and Dragon Age, part 3
Merrill:Is it time to begin yet?
Isabela:You seem quite excited, kitten. Can't wait to begin your role-playing adventure?
Merrill:Oh, yes. I've always wanted to see what it's like to be a sexy pirate.
Varric:You seem pretty at-ease with this whole role-playing thing yourself, Rivaini.
Isabela:(shrugs) This game uses dice. The ones I'm used to use tear-away costumes. I'm thoroughly familiar with both.
Aveline:Please tell me you'll be keeping your clothing on for these sessions.
Isabela:You know I'd never be able to keep that promise.
Fenris:I believe we are beginning soon.
Anders:Excellent. Hopefully Ser Ponce-a-lot will begin enslaving mages tonight.
Sebastian:Are there any cheese breads?
Hawke:Settle down, we're about to begin. So when last we left, you had all settled in for the evening. The night passes without any particular strangeness, and in the morning your team gathers at the gates to the city of Ravenwood to rescue Nalia, the daughter of Ser Stavros, from bandits in the northeast.
Varric:For science fiction, this sure seems an awful lot like what we do on a regular basis.
Merrill:I'm sure it is just starting that way.
Hawke:What would you like to do first?
Aveline:We should go to the site of the last caravan attack and look for clues.
Isabela:Can't turn it off even for an evening with friends, can you?
Aveline:There's nothing wrong with investigation where bandits are concerned.
Isabela:Cawke will lead the way to the caravan site.
Merrill:Meribela will follow. And... (glances at Isabela, who motions with her hand) ... do dirty things with her?
Hawke:What sort of dirty things?
Merrill:Eat snacks without washing her hands first!
Isabela:Well, I must admit, I do enjoy a little snacking from time to time.
Aveline:You could stand to enjoy a little less. Your bottom isn't getting any slimmer.
Isabela:(grins) I am certainly a handful.
Aveline:(mutters) More like a barrelful.
Hawke:You arrive at the scene of the crime. The torched remains of two caravan wagons are all that remain. There are a few bodies of guardsmen, but they have been stripped of all valuables.
Anders:Was this caused by magic?
Hawke:(rolls) Ser Ponce-a-lot does not detect any presence of magic.
Anders:You see? Cruelty isn't limited to mages.
Fenris:Argenteus will use a small magical charm to make it seem as if magic was involved.
Hawke:(rolls) Argenteus manages to fool Ser Ponce-a-lot with his magical charm.
Anders:But... that's lying! You rotten...
Fenris:Cruelty may not be limited to mages, but it certainly isn't a stranger to them.
Anders:But you're not even a mage!
Fenris:(wry smile) I am only playing Argenteus the way a true magister would behave.
Varric:Crunch sniff around for tracks.
Sebastian:Oh, Sting can track too! He'll help Crunch look for tracks as well.
Hawke:(rolls) The two of you manage to find some slightly obscured tracks leading to the east. You see some rolling hills a few miles in the distance.
Isabela:Oh, this will be easy. We'll go in, rescue the girl, kill the bandits, and take their things.
Varric:You really do sound like Hawke.
Hawke:I don't sound like that!
Isabela:You're right. You sound like this: "Oh, right there! Isabela, don't stop!"
Hawke:(blushes) ...
Aveline:Oh, Maker! I don't want to hear these things!
Merrill:I wouldn't mind hearing a little more.
Hawke:(glares)
Isabela:Er... right. Bandits. Let's head to the east and kill some bandits, shall we?
Hawke:You move carefully to the east, and approach the hills from the wooded side. (rolls) You manage to sneak up on what seems to be the bandit camp. There are several crude wooden cages with some haggard looking people inside. There are several tents and ramshackle huts here.
Isabela:I suppose this is where we attack.
Hawke:You're not going to set up some sort of plan?
Isabela:Why bother? They're bandits.
Aveline:Do we see the things they've looted?
Hawke:(rolls) Yes.
Aveline:And we're sure they're bandits? Are they carrying weapons and keeping prisoners?
Hawke:(rolls) Yes.
Aveline:Then they're bandits. We should bring them to justice.
Anders:Aren't you supposed to be a priestess?
Aveline:We should bring them to the light. And justice.
Varric:Crunch like smash bandits.
Hawke:Very well. You all get a surprise round for attacking while they are unawares.
Varric:Not getting jumped by the enemy for a change? This does seem like science fiction.
Hawke:(glares)
Varric:I mean... uh... Crunch charge closest bandit and smash with sword!
Hawke:(rolls) Crunch the barbarian barrels into the nearest bandit, an elf who doesn't even have time to scream before he falls to Crunch's mighty blade.
Isabela:I can use any of these spells, right?
Hawke:Yes, but some you can only use once before you rest for the night.
Anders:That's ridiculous. A mage who can only use a particular spell once before resting? Who made up these silly rules?
Fenris:Someone who rightly fears the power of magic.
Isabela:I suppose I'll choose this one. "Scorching Burst" on the largest group of bandits I can reach.
Hawke:Oh, that's a good choice. (rolls) You set four bandits on fire. Two of them drop like a sack of potatoes, while the other two are burned, and look angrily at you.
Fenris:A good showing of a magister's power. I shall do the same, except with this spell. Freezing Burst.
Hawke:(rolls) The burned bandits fall, and two others are slowed by your sudden shower of ice and frost. Hm, it seems you have defeated most of the bandits in your initial attack.
Varric:Right, this is usually where the second batch of bandits appears out of nowhere.
Hawke:(blushes)
Varric:Seriously, Hawke? Don't we get enough of this in real life?
Hawke:Hush, you. The door to the largest of the huts opens, and a massive humanoid made entirely of metal emerges. Instead of a left hand, the creature has an enormous serrated blade. Its baleful glowing eyes scan the battlefield and it attempts to cut down the nearest enemy, which is... (rolls) Sebastian.
Sebastian:(mouth full) wuh?
Anders:You're being attacked by the giant metal golem.
Sebastian:(mouth full) wuh moo I moo?
Hawke:(rolls) You take eight points of damage.
Sebastian:(mouth full) Oh. Mnn I moo mmm?
Hawke:Yes.
Sebastian:(mouth full) Mn I mnn. (reaches for another cheese bread)
Hawke:You fire your arrows at the creature, but they do not appear to harm it very much. The creature seems more annoyed than damaged, though some sort of viscous black fluid does leak from the puncture wounds.
Merrill:Oh, Mirabela will sneak behind the golem and cut the backs of its knees!
Aveline:Didn't you name her Meribela?
Merrill:Yes.
Aveline:But you just called her Mirabela.
Merrill:Yes.
Aveline:Those aren't the same thing.
Merrill:They're not?
Aveline:No, they're not.
Merrill:They sound the same to me. You silly humans and your strange pronunciations.
Isabela:It's because we have good control of our tongues.
Hawke:(rolls) Mirabela digs her daggers into the creature's knees. It staggers, but remains standing.
Aveline:Leliana shall strike it with her mace, using... Holy Smite.
Varric:It's like hitting something with a big wooden sign that says "Don't" on it.
Aveline:Hush, Crunch.
Hawke:(rolls) Leliana is unfortunately unable to strike a vulnerable spot. The divine energy dissipates harmlessly.
Anders:Ser Ponce-a-lot shall smite it with his sword. A pity there don't seem to be any mages to enslave, but he'll take it out on the monster.
Hawke:(rolls) Ser Ponce-a-lot successfully stabs the creature in the gut. It staggers and falls, bleeding its black viscous fluid all over the soft earth. We'll stop here for this session.
Merrill:Next time we can loot the bodies!
Isabela:That's the second-best part.
Merrill:What's the best?
Isabela:The victory sex, of course.
Dungeons and Dragon Age, part 2
Hawke:Alright, is everyone here? Are we ready to begin?
Isabela:Ooh, wait. Let me get comfortable. (sits down on Hawke's lap, then lifts a tankard of ale) Proceed.
Hawke:You can't sit here, Isabela. You'll be able to see all of my secrets.
Isabela:I already have, sweet thing.
Aveline:Quit wasting time!
Isabela:Spoilsport. (Sits next to Merrill)
Sebastian:(chewing) These cheese breads are quite delightful!
Anders:Can I start oppressing mages yet?
Fenris:Can I start enslaving everyone yet?
Hawke:You two need to settle down. You're only going to be one mage and one templar, you won't be able to enslave all of the people in the world by yourselves. And you're only level one.
Merrill:Level one?
Varric:It means we're starting off as new adventurers, not seasoned and experienced types like us.
Merrill:You mean Mirabela won't be a sexy, experienced pirate?
Isabela:Mirabela?
Merrill:My character's name!
Isabela:That's adorable!
Hawke:She brings up a good point. What are your characters' names?
Merrill:Mirabela the sexy pirate!
Varric:Crunch am warrior from the South!
Aveline:Leliana, the priestess.
Isabela:Not very creative are you?
Aveline:(reddening) Shut up, whore. It's not like yours is much better.
Isabela:It is so. It's an absolutely wonderful name. My mage is named Cawke.
Aveline:...
Anders:...
Hawke:...
Sebastian:(chewing) Does anyone else want some of these cheese breads? They really are delicious! (Looks around at all the silent people) Did I miss something?
Hawke:(clears throat) No. What is your character's name, Sebastian?
Sebastian:Aye, call my archer Sting.
Hawke:Very well.
Fenris:My magister is named Argenteus.
Anders:I've named my templar Ser Ponce-a-lot.
Hawke:Very well. Let's begin then. You've all been called together to meet at the inn with a local lord named Ser Stavros. He's a heavy set man - balding, with big sideburns and a thick mustache. His clothing is fine, but worn and dirty. He looks worried as he approaches you. Who shall speak for the group?
Isabela:I shall! The mighty Cawke to the rescue!
Aveline:Why do I get the feeling this is a huge mistake?
Isabela:Nonsense. Cawke is generous to a fault. She helps everyone, profit or not.
Hawke:Alright. Stavros explains that his daughter, the lovely Nalia, has been kidnapped by brigands and is seeking the help of a team of adventurers such as yourselves to rescue her.
Merrill:Oh! Can Meribela do dirty things with her?
Hawke:Ser Stavros looks aghast at the suggestion.
Isabela:(to Merrill) Don't worry, Kitten. Just do what I do. Nod your head, and have your way with her later.
Hawke:What are you going on about?
Isabela:(nods at Hawke) See?
Aveline:What can Ser Stavros tell us about these bandits?
Anders:Are there any mages among them?
Fenris:Hmm... a group of weak-willed bandits would be a good start for Argenteus to build his army of slaves.
Hawke:They seem to be a group of bandits that have been attacking trade caravans. The lady Nalia was being escorted by one.
Isabela:Cawke the heroic will rescue her!
Varric:Crunch like smash bandits. Crunch come help.
Aveline:I suppose that Leliana would like to try to rescue any of the other prisoners.
Merrill:Oh, it sounds lovely. Meribela will help as well!
Isabela:(clears throat)
Merrill:Yes?
Isabela:(whispers into Merrill's ear)
Merrill:Oh, yes. Meribela demands to know what sort of rewards we'll be receiving from Ser Stavros.
Aveline:Shouldn't saving people be its own reward?
Isabela:Oh, yes. My Cawke is all about helping those in need. My Cawke shall lead our group to rescue the fair Nalia and defeat the brigands in the morning.
Varric:Crunch is ready to smash.
Merrill:Meribela looks for some barmaids to do dirty things with.
Aveline:Leliana shall spend her evening in prayer.
Fenris:Argenteus shall sit and drink. Alone.
Anders:Ser Ponce-a-lot will drink too. More alone than Argenteus.
Aveline:Sebastian, did you eat all of the cheese breads?! I wanted one of those!
Hawke:I can see that our next session will be certainly interesting.

Triforce Meets Formal Wear
I’m all for making formal wear more exciting such as with cufflinks,gamer ties or even a pocket square.
TheChief0 uncovers and reviews these Double-Sided Triforce Cufflinks by TheRiceHatSamurai ($65). Full post below.

When it comes to jewelry most men go really simple. Let your geek flag fly with a pair of these on your wrist. Abstract enough to get away with at work, out on the town, or in formal situations but obvious to the gamers in you may encounter. If I didn’t have more than my fair share of cufflinks these would be on my radar. $65 sounds like plenty of money but if these are sterling silver like the rest of TheRiceHatSamurai’s range then it is a bargain for such unique jewelry. After all double side cufflinks are hard to find under 100 be they precious metal or enameled.
