Earlier today I shared a screenshot with my PC Gamer pals of a badger taking a wee rest in Baldur's Gate 3. It quickly spiralled into an obsession that has taken up the rest of the day and filled our Slack with badgers, courtesy of Nat, Chris, James and Andy Kelly. Here are the fruits of this obsession.

The badger is mostly a Ross, but after a few drinks he's definitely a Joey.

Badgers are actually excellent builders, using their sharp teeth to saw through trees that they then add to their elaborate dams. It's pretty tricky, which is why they use their distinctive tails to help them balance. How industrious!

OK, this time I'll give you a real badger fact. Or at least lore from a fantasy universe. There is actually a house in A Song of Ice and Fire, House Lydden, that's all about badgers. Can't get enough of them. Its castle is called Deep Den, and it's got a lovely badger on its house crest.

Nonchalantly breaking City 17's rules about badgers on trains—what a badass. No wonder everyone's giving him a wide berth.

I know we haven't mentioned Valheim in a few minutes, so here you go.

Before I run off to do weekend things, I leave you with one last gift: my resting badger, so that you can spread him far and wide. Treat him well, please. He's had a busy day.
