Game Developer Sells His Own Blood On eBay

These are actually no longer available from the auction site because they presumably violated eBay’s Human Remains and Body Parts Policyآ—but those of you who would actually pay thousands of dollars to hang Richard Garriott’s blood on your wall can head over to the Shroud of the Avatar store.

Ultima developer Richard "Lord British" Garriott made a splash by putting an artful reliquary containing his actual blood up for sale on eBay. The listing is now gone, most likely due to Ebay’s strict "Don’t Sell Blood" policy. Promoting and raising money for his crowdfunded RPG Shroud of the Avatar, Garriott and producer Starr "Darkstarr" Long both had blood drawn in order to fill a dozen reliquaries, crafted by artist Steve Brudniak.
