Osprey made a butterfly board for avatars, and last night we played on it a little. A newbie came by, and we invited him to impale himself with us, which he did. We could change position by clicking on the head of the pin. At first Osprey had on her moth outfit, but then she liked it better as a human. Kinda masochistic but really fun!

It's an amazing invention! I wonder if Osprey would consider making and selling a pin that did this sort of thing in any location... :)

The pins are all separate and work anywhere. You can have one. I made it thinking avatar collection more than winged avatar collection but both look nice.

I could sell it but is there really a need? Maybe.

Always a need for such wonderfully bizarre creations! An even a small cost will help with the upload fees :)

Osprey might offer it as a giant acupuncture set! I never felt better since being pinned to a card. Or a personal voodoo... no, never mind. Not a very nice idea. Well, Os put me in stitches for days, and I have been on pins and needles wanting to get back and play.

I am reminded of Milton (which I quote quite gratuitously - or should I say needlessly?)

And pomp and feast and revelry,
With mask and antique pageantry,
Such sights as youthful poets dream
On summer eves by haunted stream.
Then to the well-trod stage anon,
If Johnson's learned sock is on,
Or sweetest Shakespeare, Fancy's child,
Warble his native wood-notes wild,
And ever, against eating cares,
Lap me in soft Lydian airs,
Married to immortal verse
Such as the meeting soul may
In notes with many a winding bout
Of linked sweetness long drawn out.

I imagine Johnson pierced through the soul, singing in sweetness and long drawn out Lydian verses, upon Osprey's card. No wonder they thought me an odd one.
