Battle Kittens: Armour for your cats

When I started this blog I knew I had to have at least one post about cats. Problem is; cats are very rarely connected to roleplaying games unless they’re a familiar or… a monster. However, these amazingly detailed armors from Jeff de Boer will inspire any DM looking to add something unique to their campaign. I dare you to make stats for an armored cat and unleash an army of them on unsuspecting first level characters. You’ll quickly find out who’s dog people and who’s not. Actually… if you’re playing Mouse Guard I guess it would be appropriate, even if there’s supposedly no cats featured in that setting.

Jeff de Boer is a Calgary-based multi-media artist with an international reputation for producing some of the world’s most original and well-crafted works of art. With an emphasis on metal, he is best known for such bodies of work as suits of armour for cats and mice, armour ties and sword-handled briefcases, rocket lamps and pop culture ray guns, and exquisite high art, abstract works called exoforms.
