The community uses a simple web-forum software called SMF to congregate, brainstorm, and share artwork digitally.

Do not Fuck with Cthulhu!If any of you Cthulu enthusiasts out there want to get together with other Lovecraft lovers, CthulhuCon is the place to do it. The good people at io9 have alerted us that Portland will be the site for this year’s H. P. Lovecraf Film Festival and CthulhuCon on Oct. 1-3.

But if you plan on going, you need to make a will -2 check [2] first. Lose enough sanity, and you can go.

D&D Monster Man: RPG improv that’s actually funny

The D&D Monster man returns! I think the folks at Ragnarok should hire this guy to dress up in a Norker costume. Then they can stab them with they’re soft weapons.

New Feature: Dance Lessons With Elvis Jr.

Written by

As a kid I tried out a lot of different hobbies before finding something I liked enough to stick with. Legos, Etch-a-Sketch, binge drinking – none did it for me. Thankfully I found disc golf, and my life hasn’t been the same since.

But not all kids like Frisbees. Some prefer boomerangs. Or womanizing. Or Elvis.

Some really like Elvis. Some like him so much that they spend their free time dressing up and singing sort of like the King (for the record, I’ve never dressed as, or sang like, a Frisbee). Handshake spent a couple days with a half dozen little Elvi at the Lake George Elvis Festival in Lake George, NY. You have to really like your hobby to travel across the country or an international border to do it. And you have to have a really loving family, or an insane stage mom, to ferry you around to these gigs. Here’s a Handshake tribute to the dedicated kids.

Check our full story on these Kid Kings in the September issue of Handshake magazine.
