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.

COMIC BOOK STAINED GLASS WINDOWS

Check out these custom made stained glass windows by Redditor OwlQuill. Perfect for the Holy Church of Geekery if one were to actually exist somewhere. if it did, I would want to be the Reverend. Or maybe the minister. Is there a difference? Whoever gets the coolest outfit.

As awesome as these are, the Hawkeye one makes my heart sad knowing that the series will end with issue #22. Great job, Matt Fraction. You broke my heart, you perfect bastard.

Edgy adult manga titles Attack on Titan, Death Note, and FLCL get adorable Little Golden Book covers thanks to artist Matt Reedy. I’m eagerly awaiting the Demon Beast Invasion version which will most likely never happen.

HUEY, DEWEY, AND LOUIE ROCK ICONIC STREETWEAR

Check out the duck triplets rocking Supreme, Nike, MORTE, and Givenchi. At first glance I thought these 3D illustrations by Simeon Georgiev were some sort of limited edition figure release, but sadly they’re not. Just 3D illustrations. Like with a computer. Like they’ll never be on my shelf. Sad as it is, they’re still hecka’ awesome.

BOB BURNQUIST HAS A FLOATING SKATE RAMP ON LAKE TAHOE
California’s Department of Tourism is on point. Click through for a video of skate legend Bob Burnquist skating on giant floating ramp in the middle of Lake Tahoe. The whole thing is supposed to make you want to visit Cali, but it really just makes me want to be rich so I can have my own floating skate ramp. And health insurance since I’ll probably hurt myself.

I wonder if all the rebellious skaters I looked up to as a kid secretly talk in snobby Ivy League voices to one another. “Oh, you absolutely MUST come with us to my floating ramp in Lake Tahoe over the summer, it’s TO DIE for. I can hardly imagine how I ever skated on sidewalks in public with so many poor people around!”

RED BULL CANS IN JUSTICE LEAGUE OUTFITS

The Red Bull Superhero Project is a design concept by New York-based Art Director Diego Fonseca.

It’s basic human knowledge that Red Bull tastes like complete caca mixed with vomit (if you don’t think so, you’re either a goddamn liar or your taste buds are playing an evil trick on you), but these packaging redesigns featuring the iconic costumes of DC superheroes Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern are sick enough that I could see people buying them just to display on their shelves. I’m sure people have displayed lamer things. I have a shelf full of Orbitz. Remember those? The little orbs are totally still floating and there’s even a mail-in rebate for a free movie ticket to see Independence Day starring Will Smith in theaters! No, you can’t have one.
