TABLETOP RPGS GET CLASSY WITH THE ADVENTURER’S KIT

Designed by Mitch Barchi, the Adventurer’s Kit is what I imagine someone like Mark Twain or Winston Churchill would have played D&D with back in their day.

From the artist: 

The Adventurer’s Kit had been inspired by my lifelong passion for roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons or World of Dungeons. My goal was to create a portable kit that anyone could pickup and play a quick, or introductory, roleplaying session with little to no prep time. I created a simple overland map illustration for the lid using the Art Institute of Seattle’s lasercutter. I also included a standard set of polyhedral dice since they are used in many roleplaying systems. Many roleplaying systems also use miniatures, I wanted to include some basic minis for the players. The miniatures featured in these sets are vintage unpainted Heroscape monsters. Also provided is a Moleskine notebook with gridded paper if the player or game master want to map a dungeon or take notes. Each kit also includes a pamphlet for the excellent hack and slash World of Dungeons RPG system. These printouts and other adventure PDFs can be found on Dungeon-World.com for free. With the tools provided in these kits players and game masters alike can enjoy an adventure on the go.

Too bad it’s a one-off. This guy should think about pitching this to Wizards of the Coast for some sort of D&D Collector’s Edition Starter Set idea. I’d totally by the living shit out of something like that.

London Artist Makes Cornershop Out of Felt

London-based felt artist Lucy Sparrow has transformed an abandoned cornershop into her own pop-up grocery store full of felt-made objects. The entirety of the shop are hand-sewn and made to sell. Bean cans, bags of chips, cigarettes, drinks, frozen dinners, chewing gum and newspapers — all of these items were handcrafted out of felt by Sparrow in this unique project idea. Those who want to check out the shop who are located in London can head east toward Bethnal Green. The rest of us will just have to admire from our keyboards.

Action Figures Made Entirely From Twisty Ties

I’ve paid actual money for action figures that aren’t nearly as cool as these.

Adorable Valentine’s Day Cards for Geeks
I’m not one for Valentine’s day cards (Or any cards for that matter, except Yu-gi-Oh and Pokemon at one point.) but I have to admit, these cards from Paperwheel are pretty cute.
On top of that, they are really nicely designed. I love the texture to the cards. They also do other card designs, all of which feature the great textured look. They are simple and beautiful.
I wonder if they do business cards…

Enchiridion iPad Case

In the world of Adventure Time, the Enchiridion is a sacred handbook for heroes, filled with all kinds of useful info like how to harness the magical healing properties of cyclops tears and how to kiss princesses. It can also rip wormholes through the multiverse leading to the total annihilation of all existence, but that’s a whole other thing.

HarryDumitrescu made this Enchiridion iPad cover using fake leather, a Molotow pen, and clear finish. Check out the WIP pics here.

YouTube, SoundCloud, Skype, And Apple As Game Boy Carts

These custom carts by 3liter are pretty awesome, but it would have been a blajillion times more awesome if YouTube and Skype were Game Boy Camera carts. Just sayin’.

Steampunk Portal Gun

This wood, metal, and glass sculpture by Duncan Shirah is probably what the handheld portal device would have looked like if Aperture Science was founded in the 1800’s.

These Custom Mario And Toad Vinyl Toys Are The Hotness
Because, you know, they’re on fire. Man, I’m a clever dude sometimes. But this isn’t one of those times, so on with the post…
These are the toy customizing wizardry of Fuller Designs. The 4-inch Mario Mini Munny and 3-inch Toad Dunny were up for sale at Fuller’s online shop, but apparently there’s this ongoing trend where people like to spend money on awesome things, so they’re all sold out now.

Phenomenal Custom Batman Munny By Avatar666

Mexican custom toy artist Emmanuel Pérez del Río a.k.a. Avatar666 went for the noir-ish vibe of the Batman Black and White series and effing KILLED it. From the great sculpting work right down to the cloth utility belt, this is easily the greatest vinyl homage to the Dark Kight we’ve seen yet.

"Now, shall you deal with ME, O Prince - and all the powers of HELL!"

It’s common scientific knowledge that Maleficent is the greatest Disney villain of them all. To pay tribute, toy artist Leecifer made this homage to the Mistress of All Evil using a Fatima figure, some sculpting work, paint, and mad skills. I kind of really want one.

Custom Wooden Game Of Thrones Risk Set

Fay Helfer whipped up this exquisitely classy Game of Thrones Risk set complete with an engraved wooden box, a wood-carved map of Westeros, and cloth pouches to hold the game pieces. The fact that the game pieces aren’t shown makes me think he just used the ones that come with an actual game of Risk, but I could be wrong. Even if I’m not, I wouldn’t knock the dude for it because this whole thing is just too absurdly awesome.
