The Nautilus Artifact

Was Nemo's infamous Nautilus destroyed by the Loffoden Maelstrom?  We may never know the answer to that question, but there's no doubt the submarine was extensively damaged.  This intriguing fragment of a stanchion was recovered by the talented Michael R. Maranda.

Update:  Based on a comment below it appears the octopus finial is actually a sculpt from artist Michael Locascio.  My apologies for any confusion.

It's an Honor Just to be Nominated...

I appreciate the well wishes, but I didn't actually win an ENnie award for Best RPG Related Product at GenCon.

For some reason the Kickstarter blog linked to my old Miskatonic University Prop Package instead of the actual winner- Chaosium's Miskatonic University: The Restricted Collection Board Game.

Viking Vambraces

I'm reasonably sure these Viking vambraces from leather crafter Peter Ortiz aren't historically accurate, but they sure are pretty.

Throne of Cthulhu

Here's something you don't see everyday.  Dee Grady brings us a snapshot of this immense Cthulhu throne.  Unfortunately, beyond the fact it was found at a renfaire I have no idea where the photograph was taken.  I've left a comment on his Instagram account looking for a location.

Update:  It appears this is the Bristol Renaissance Festival in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  My thanks to everyone who sleuthed out the location.

Mystery Cthulhu Idol

I like to think I'm on the short list of people familiar with artists producing Cthulhu idols, but this one posted by Marshall Alvarado on Instagram has me stumped.  It was apparently sold by a vendor at the "Midsummer Scream" Halloween convention this past weekend in Long Beach, California.  Anyone with a pointer to who the artist might be?
