Geo / Babak's Gift Guide for TAY Secret Santa 2019!

My name’s Babak Abrishamchian, but here on TAY I used to go by my username GeoStar! I’m an author in Los Angeles working on my Science Fiction book “A Long Way To Orion.”

I have the issue that I’m into a million different things, so I apologize if I’m hard to shop for.

Things I collect/love to buy:

Pens. I’m a pen freak, and I ordered 4 new ones right before I wrote this. I never buy fountain pens, but I love every other kind, from ballpoint to rollerball to brush pens (I’ve been really getting into brush pens recently). Alternatively I REALLY need some nice new notebooks. If you know any nice notebooks that are handheld sized (I can’t handle the big legal sized pages) I’d also love that.


Cook Books. I’ve spent years learning to cook, and I’m slowly building a small library of cook books. Since this is TAY and I want to stay on brand, there are plenty of nerdy/gaming themed cookbooks I’d be very happy with as a gift. Either of Andrew Rea (Binging With Babish)‘s books are particularly great.

Art books: I love art books because they’re a great behind the scenes on game design, and they support great artists. If there’s any great Art books for video games you know of, I’d love them! I already have nearly every Nintendo art book I could find though.

Games/Franchises I’m the biggest fan of:

The Outer Worlds: The best RPG I’ve ever played. Not much else needs to be said. Anything related to the outer worlds is alright with me.


Fire Emblem: Easily my favorite franchise. I just started my third playthrough of Three Houses maddening difficulty. Fire Emblem Amiibo, Art (all hail etsy) or any other media is awesome for me.

Avatar the Last Airbender: My favorite TV/Comics series. Same as Fire Emblem, anything works!


Dragon Quest: I am in desperate need of a Hero Amiibo, but of course there isn’t one (THANKS SQUARE ENIX).

Hope that’s enough! Thanks in advance, and I hope you have a merry Christmas/Chanukah/Festivus/Kwanzaa/Festag!
