Offer: Hand-carved Wooden Chess Set (Pieces)
self portrait
jbru
This is a set of wooden chess pieces. Carved by Nate Bucklin's father and kept by Nate from his childhood. Pieces have bases that are approximately one-inch square. King pieces are approximately three inches tall. The set has, inexplicably, nine black pawns. One white pawn and one white rook have curved corner pieces missing from their bases. One white pawn's base is broken cleanly across the base and could be easily glued together.

Nate told me the black pieces were carved from a South American hardwood called quebracho. It has an entry in Wikipedia, which says in part, "The etymology of the name appears to be Spanish, derived from quiebrahacha, meaning 'axe-breaker.'" Nate reports, however, that it is apparently an Indian word, and the Spanish similarity is coincidental.


In addition, the pieces are kept in a box originally used for Kensington Hand Soap. The box has the pencil inscription: Property - Nathan Allan Bucklin, and a few letters filled in with pencil. It has a few stains but is solid and in good condition.

This photograph is of a fisherman in Maine, casting the line.  I love that the image catches the entire run of the fishing line.  It is matted in dark green.  If you love fishing, this would be a great print for your cabin.   The first image below is a close-up so you can see the detail, the second shows the matting.

State of affairs

Being a report of how things are going with the finances, as best as I can figure them. I seem to have come down with some kind of crud at the con, so this'll be short, and perhaps incomplete:

Here we are ->Collapse )

So the summary is that things are looking very good. I feel very good about my chosen family and the way in which the community has responded to assist us. You folks are super!

MN-StF President Assassination -- Death by Unforgiving Curse
New Tilley Hat

Click on a picture for larger picture

To help raise money for accessiblehouse as well as continue the tradition at Closing Ceremonies, the method of Assassination of the MN-StF President was auctioned off. First, here in LiveJournal, where micheinnz had the high bid online. Ah, but at Closing Ceremonies, she was outbid by Time Being. Further, TB acquired Minions and a Henchwoman, all contributing to the charity to take part in this historic occasion.

The high bid in, the winner and the minions held a brief conference with the victim. Then...

Death by Unforgivable Curse Death by Unforgivable Curse

Frank Dyson, winner of the auction for accessiblehouse, prepares to assassinate the MN-StF President with Death by Unforgivable Curse. Minicon 4/12/09

Death by Unforgivable Curse. Oooh. President lydy was in for it now!

Minions hurl their curses Minions hurl their curses

erica_j_stark hurls a curse while Alec waits his turn. Minicon 4/12/09

The Unforgivable Curses:
aedifica: "May the odors of a thousand unchanged litterboxes hang about your head."
erica_j_stark: "May termites infest your library."
Alec Phillips: "May your shoelaces always untie themselves."

The coup de grace:

Avada Kedavra Avada Kedavra

Frank casts the fatal spell. Minicon 4/12/09


And with that, lydy was President no more. Stepping into the power vacuum was new president kalikanzara.

Thanks to all who participated, and especially those who donated to the greater cause. Including micheinnz's donation, we raised $75 for accessiblehouse.
