Evil Geeks Archaeology: The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks and the Relics of Hyrule

Staff_of_Ra

Excavating relics is a tricky business. When I was a child, I wanted nothing more to be an archaeologist because of the Indiana Jones movies. It took me a long time to be convinced that it wasn’t all finding ancient artifacts and fighting Nazi’s. There’s a lot of research done in libraries and more often than not you were looking for pieces of pottery as opposed to mythic treasure.

I recently uncovered some documents in my house that I had thought were swept up by the sands of time. The documents in questions were photographs. I’m not sure when exactly they were taken, but my best carbon dating would place them around 1990. My father though he carried not a master sword was able to forge Link’s shield for me.

Evil Geek Archaeology: The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks and the Ancient Scrolls of Ninh-Tehn-Doh

Greetings Evil Geeks!  A few weeks back I reported on a surprising find, unearthed in the ancient tombs beneath the Evil Lair:  A massive treasure trove of old G.I. Joe Personnel Cards, checklists, and promotional materials!  Luckily the Evil Lair is a gift that keeps on giving.  Along with the Joe documents, a trove of Nintendo materials dating as far back and the antiquitous times know as the 1990’s.  Marvel at how our geek forefathers lived in the pre-internet era.  Such quaint notions! Such primitive technologies! How could they possibly live like that?!?! Regardless, this was a stunning find, so get out your tiny little brushes, because it’s excavatin’ time!

Evil Geek Archaeology: The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks and the Lost Treasure of Hasbro

 

Greetings Evil Geeks!  Recently, we’ve been doing a little digging around the Evil Lair and we’ve managed to turn up some exciting artifacts.  To say that the Evil Lair is an ancient and mysterious place would be selling short the strangeness of the ancestral home of The Brotherhood of Evil Geeks.  We actually bought the place off a group of retired Bothan spies, but those guys lived here for a REALLY long time before we got here though and they told us they got it on the cheap after there was a series of grisly Gorn murders committed in the sun room.  Countless lab “accidents”, weapon misfires, prison riots, and demon infestations, have left several stratified layers of previous civilizations beneath the floorboards.  After spending much of our formative years watching and constantly re-watching the Indiana Jones TRILOGY (because as you know, as far as C-Mart is concerned there are only three Indiana Jones movies, that’s it.  No more, only THREE!!!), we feel that we’re pretty much experts in all there is to know about archaeology: punching Nazi’s before they melt, whiskey, chilled monkey brains, and occasionally digging something out of the dirt.  On our most recent expedition to the bowels of the Evil Lair, we’ve managed to turn up some geek artifacts that we think folks will get a kick out of seeing.
