Knights of the Geek Realm and Excalibur Lightsaber

When I started my Facebook Community Page for Knights of the Geek Realm, I kind of began neglecting this blog. It occurred to me last night that I shared a lot of things that follow the Knights and Geeks theme on the Facebook Page, but not here on the blog.

But, first, Let’s talk about the theme of the blog and just exactly why I named it Knights of the Geek Realm.

As a child, I loved the film Excalibur. I loved the story of a magical sword that empowered the chosen King to unite his Kingdom and also show his reign as the great King he was to be. The Knights of the Round Table, King Arthur, Merlin the Magician and the Kingdom of Camelot. I fell in love with Knights and Swords and Kings and Castles, and, even to this day, I still love them.

The Justice League is really where the idea started to take shape. A group like the Knights of the Round Table, Super Heroes united to protect people, they even had The Dark Knight, the Caped Crusader, Batman, the modern Knight, among them.

I also loved Star Wars as a kid, and even more so today. Jedi Knights, the Good guys, wielders of powers that were like magic, a sword that glowed. These were Knights made into a Sci-Fi setting that completely changed my world. Science Fiction and Fantasy collided in the most awesome fashion.

Then, after I joined Facebook, so long ago, I came across this:

The Knights of the Geek Realm slowly became an idea of mixing the fandoms, showing the Geeks and defending our Geekdom from those who would repress us.

I combined things I love, and the Knights were the result.

As I built this idea, I looked for Geeky things that fit the theme of Knights and I found tons of things that completely fit the theme.

Here are some designs I did for the Excalibur Lightsaber.
