Probably the nerdiest thing I do is study Elder Scrolls lore, which goes a lot deeper than you might think. I also like to roleplay, and would like to join a game of D&D after a get a job with a more consistent schedule. I've learned how to use a few game creator engines, and I've made some sprites to work with. I haven't heard about this Star Wars: Armada game, but I have tried Heroscape recently, and it seems similar in concept with its expensive figurines used as game pieces.

Born under one law, to another bound;
Vainly begot, and yet forbidden vanity,

Oh, holy Bob.  How much space does this board have?

Let's see... just on top of the hutch on my computer desk is a LEGO Companion Cube (from the Portal games), a stick-and-ball model of a caffeine molecule, my You are not allowed to view links.

Glancing to my left are on display three You are not allowed to view links.

Over my left shoulder, the 2' plush Dalek I crocheted a couple years ago (the plush Cthulhu is in the living room), the Pop! figures of Tom Servo and Crow T Robot, a Dilbert lunchbox, and a microVAX 3000.  Directly behind, a Dalek pencil case repurposed to hold my gaming dice, on the nightstand.  Nothing but bed and wall to the right.  Except for the vintage PC-XT and Terak systems in the corner.

And that's without leaving my bedroom, and leaves out several areas of interest, and doesn't get anywhere near my library.

I know, I'm hopeless.  XD

What, no Jar Jar Binks in-action figurine? ;-))
No. That's only on my desk--right next to my Taz bobble head.

Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

I have one of those, too.  My nightstand has a nice little cubbyhole for it.  I enjoy the contrast of cute and scary.

I crocheted mine out of rainbow yarn so I could have a sort of tie-dye Cthulhu.

My Dalek is made from the same yarn.  :)

I guess about the nerdiest thing I do is play with a Rubik's cube. Can't do all the other nerdy stuff I'd enjoy without money.

Ever try Avalon Hill games?  I'm getting ready to play Gettysburg.  Just need to build a table cover so the cats won't "play" the game while I sleep...  LOL!
