Playing Dungeons & Dragons is a wondrous adventure, one where you and your friends often say the most ridiculous things that totally make sense at the time. Take those words out of context, and suddenly it’s an entirely different story. Out of Context D&D Quotes is where gamers can submit some of the funnier lines friends have said in game. BritishGuyWhatsHisName added some artwork, and now you have your laughing place for the day.

This is paper. Seriously.

It’s the work of a Japanese craftsman who has taken the time to not only do the exterior, but complete interiors too. Vipers, X-Wings, and even 2001’s Orion are all here in paper. Can you recognize all the ships?

There are over 100 different characters on The Simpsons and a surprisingly small cast of people that manages all the voices. Simpsons fans already know all this of course, but this image made by @Jishai is a simple way of visualizing that information.

Compare it to the South Park cast graphic after the break (click on the images to enlarge).

Pegg takes over after two prior writers walked away. J.J. Abrams left to helm Star Wars while Roberto Orci reportedly left over studio concerns with his script. As we’ve noted in the past, Orci will still be involved with the movie as a producer.

interface

Star Wars takes place in a galaxy far, far away with way better tech than we have here on Earth. This video takes all the various user interfaces, from doors to buttons to screens, and gathers them in one video. It’s interesting to see how these UIs stack up to what is reality today.

Scooby Doo featured a bunch of meddling kids solving all manner of mysterious crime, but it’s been a few years. They certainly wouldn’t be kids anymore and artist Dan Meth has imagined how they’d look today.

Needless to say, they’re all looking a little old and not quite up to their crime-stopping ways. But Scooby, well, that one just may make you cry.

Fallout and Skyrim are two very different games that take place in entirely different worlds. Here’s what happens if you mash those two worlds together and set their characters against each other. It’s Fallout‘s Vault Boy versus Skyrim‘s Dovahkiin and it will make you wish you could actually play this battle in-game.

It seems that the Sorting Hat may have made an error. Actor Tom Felton, who portrayed Slytherin Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies, joined Pottermore and was sorted into Gryffindor. He tweeted the news, likely horrifying legions of Harry Potter fans. J.K. Rowling, however, was not surprised at all and tweeted her support of the Sorting Hat’s choice.

Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse is the work of Bigshot Toyworks who bring us Calamity (Pestilence), Raven (Famine), Clash (War) and Ghost (Death). These are the scariest ponies ever with skulls and big teeth and flaming bodies. These ponies are not interested in friendship—only chaos.
