The magic lizard, now in glorious updated looks! Thanks to moronface
for producing such an awesome piece of work, it's inspired me to work extra hard on Melody of the Kirin. Be sure to hit him/her up for great art, his/her prices are legit affordable and the work is def worth it. Seriously he/she even got the wand right to a T.
The new work is much more whimsical and fun, and has an adventurous duo seeking out pieces of a lost work for an upcoming festival. It'll feature Milly, since I'm doing something with her, damn it. And the title? Well, I'm excited for that.
Sunrise: Melody of the Kirin.
Look forward to getting chapter 1 out in a few days!
So, a bizarre development's happened and I'll be upfront; the current story idea's being put on hold for the time being. This is because of a number of reasons, mostly because I don't really feel like something as gritty as Obsidian Dreams, the title of the story, would be very fun to write currently. Mostly cause I'm not really in the mood for it, as I've discovered. Instead, another idea's enthralled me, one which I've actually began work on as of the writing of this.
So this here's a little repository for info on the protag of this story I'm slapping together. It's really not going to be very organized, but hey, it'll provide a bit of context, I guess. I 'unno. Here be Milianor, aka Milly, the magic lizard extraordinaire. Now the info dump! Born into a...
So I hope to begin writing the story around Tue or Wed of next week, been getting the final details narrowed down and refining my writing. Decided I'm going novel style on this thing, chapters of various, indeterminate length and whatnot. Why? Because every chapter doesn't need to be a short story! I've learned from that mistake. Also Henry will appear in chapter 1, along with a homicidal house plant named Chuck.
Huzzah! I've now been enlightened and the story has been shaped! New art of the lizard is also in the works. This will be a thing! And chapter one will feature a basilisk named Henry. Henry isn't very friendly. He gets hit with a rock.
Milly pulled back the vines and froze, shocked by what she saw. Staring up at her was a riveted, industrial helmet with a grilled mouth guard, and dirtied glass eye lens. Up close she recognized the cowling of the engine mounted on the back of the shape she sat upon, that of an enormous suit of armor. This was the final resting place of a warrior who participated in the Great War. It was all that remained of one of the mighty Gene Giants of the Grand Legion.
She squealed and fell onto her back when the helmet turned to look her in the eyes.
Give me about a week and I'll get to cracking on this story. Gotta psyche myself up, and get the final details of the lizard done. I can introduce you to the lizard, tho. Here she be, Milly the Reagent Hunter extraordinaire! She got stage magic, she got a magic wand, she got a mighty hankering for wolfing down as many discount noodle bowls as she can. And most importantly, she's going to grow from a rookie Wage Mage to a Spellslinger, by facing adversity and challenge, growing as a person, and magician from it! Hope you all like her!
Which would be a more compelling possession for the magic lizard, a wand and a magic sword that can catch on fire, or a dagger wand what makes a flaming blade to shank people with from a bit further away?
"Okay so I found a way to make it work. Sort of. What we did was we found some chunks of obsidian looking stuff that're great magic lightning rods and regulators. So... We stuck them inside a patient. Yes. We jammed about two dozen shards of this magic space rock into this person and pumped them full of magic."
Dontcha just love when ideas suddenly come in from outta nowhere? Glad to say I finally have an idea for an extended story, now. Will need to tweak it for a bit, but I think I got something. Needless to say it will revolve around a magic lizard with an inferiority complex regarding her heritage, and some issues to settle with a mithril armed bartender. And a megalomaniac looking to restore a machine used in ancient times to create a caste of magic wielding killers. What could possibly go wrong?
So I might have a few ideas for stories at last. Spent the last month and a half working on refining my style. The question is, however, which do I do first? Meeting with a nerdy countess in a magic manor of madness, or a thought provoking encounter with a sapient vending machine?
So chapter 2 for A Familiar Encounter is going up tomorrow. Also doing a thing on someone finding a crashed UFO around the same time a reptoid recovery team happens upon the scene. Might do an rp based off it. I 'unno. I just write, fam.
And here is the first part of my pet project, Age of Wonders. Been working on this since 2013 and I'm finally doing something with it. This follows the Rat Catcher Aaron on his quest to find a mysterious intruder in a nobleman's spire home in the gilded city of Valhedge.
So what's there to say about me... Well, I've been rping on and off for going on a decade now. Avid fan of most forms of tabletop gaming and I've played DnD for going on eight years now. Big sci fi and fantasy nerd. Dabble in writing every now and then, actually working on my own piece currently. Cantrips > Any other spells. Have quite a few characters from over the years, so I've got options. Yeet.
