Miniature Papercraft Fantasy Castle

The template for this miniature papercraft castle originally appeared in the June 1984 issue of Dragon Magazine, a publication dedicated to the subject of role playing games. The official name of the castle is "The High Keep of the Grand Chapter of the Order of St. Raphael". However, to keep things short it was given the nickname "Great Stoney". An scanned copy of the magazine containing the castle template may be found here.

Krampus Paper Toy

In certain European countries, the Feast of St. Nicholas is celebrated on December 6th. In many of these countries, "Krampus Night" (in German Krampusnacht) is celebrated on December 5th. Whereas St. Nicholas comes to bring good children presents, Krampus comes to bring naughty children coal. Krampus also carries a bundle of birch branches in order to swat those children that are particularly naughty. Extremely naughty children are carried away to Krampus' lair. This paper toy Krampus was created by Trystan Mitchell and may be downloaded here.
