  • Comics

Capital City Collectibles

A great comic book and collectibles store in Lansing, Michigan.  They also sell on eBay.


An online comic featuring Florence Ambrose (a genetically engineered Bowman's Wolf), Sam Starfall (a highly dishonest alien squid), and Helix the robot.  

Groo the Wanderer

Groo the Wanderer was created by Sergio Aragon� It's the story of a barbarian who is as dangerous as a stampede of cattle...and almost as smart. Along with his intrepid, oddly-loyal hound Rufferto, he roams another time and place, leaving destruction in his wake..  

Order of the Stick

 An online comic detailing the satirized D&D adventures of a group of stick figures.  Really!

Sluggy Freelance

 One of the oldest online comics. Sluggy Freelance started in 1997. It tells of the adventures of Torg the nerd, Riff the genius inventor and Zo�the most normal character of the bunch. They are accompanied from time to time by supernaturally powered Gwynn, a psychopathic switchblade-wielding rabbit Bun-bun, the hyperactive ferret Kiki, and a shape-shifting alien named Aylee.  


  • Live Action Role Playing


Amtgard is a non-profit, non-sectarian organization that is dedicated to the recreation of the Sword and Sorcery genre as well as educational aspects of both Medieval and Ancient cultures. Amtgard focuses largely on a Medieval-based combat system but also encompasses the arts and sciences of the time, in a friendly, social atmosphere. Amtgard uses safe, foam-padded replicas of Medieval weaponry. Anyone aged fourteen years or older may compete in the martial aspect of the game but we welcome members of all ages. There's a place for everyone.

The Barony Of Ashen Hills

The Barony of Ashen Hills is part of Amtgard, a live-action-role-play game similar to World of Warcraft. The game comes complete with a variety of character classes and advancement levels and a full magic system. New members of all ages are welcome. Live battles are reserved for players ages 14 and up.

Kingdom Of The Rising Winds

The Rising Winds is a medieval recreation society that uses the rules set forth in the Amtgard rules of play.
