For sake of my own motivation, I’m going to try to keep posting the converted form of Seryth’s Story as it might appear in a novel to this blog. For more information on the process and why I’m doing this, see Seryth’s Story, which starts in this post, and Part 1 of Chapter 1, which can be found here. Continue reading “Conversion: Chapter 1, Part 2”
In this post I’ll show you part of the process in converting Seryth’s Story from its Living Story form into what it might look like in a novel. Continue reading “Seryth’s Story: Conversion to Novel Format”
“That was Henrik. He was oath-bound to serve the Kingdom, and look where it got him. Anyway, it’s not just the new tax, is it? It’s all the other new taxes over the past year. Taxes on windows, on doors, on the number of people living under one roof, the tax for actually having a roof.”
“Damn it all, Lieutenant. He’s gone too far this time.” Continue reading “The First Bastion”
I’m working on finishing up Page 4 of the Trials Web Comic series. Here’s that sneak preview I was promising: Continue reading “A Sneak Preview, and a Small Rant”
This article details the making of the first page of the web comic version of Trials. It includes some of the early sketches and the steps of the page’s coloring process. Continue reading “Trials, Page One: Special Edition”
Since I discovered the page break function, I’m now able to condense all these comic pages down to one post! And yikes. Old art is always a little embarrassing, even if it’s only from a couple years ago and not ten…
You can now use the buttons at the bottom of the page to navigate (instead of the sidebar as stated in the image captions). Everything else I have preserved as it was in the original posts.Author’s Note
Avaliet is a large volcanic island off the western coast of the Shey Lands.
This is a teaser to an RPG supplement I will be putting out later this year (2019). It describes the large island of Avaliet and some of its notable cities and landmarks. Continue reading “RPG Teaser: Avaliet”
Akor’mari (singular: akor’mar) are the cave-dwellers of the ‘mar races, and can be found in most inhabitable parts of the underground Reaches. On the Surface, they are rare… This is to the relief of most other races, who throughout history have suffered the attacks of the akor’mari and term them one of the greatest evils of the known world.
This is a teaser for one of the races being added by the new RPG setting I will be putting out later this year (2019). Being only a preview, some details may change upon publication. Continue reading “RPG Teaser: The Akor’mari”
Though I am still waiting back on the verdict from the latest publisher I am trying Hottest Day on, I have another squee to share in the meantime. I have been extended a contract to start work on some RPG supplements to be posted later this year on DriveThruRPG!
If you haven’t heard of them, DriveThruRPG is a website specializing in posting supplements for RPG systems like Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, and Vampire: The Masquerade. Both official rulebooks and supplements as well as those written by third party professionals can be found here. Though there is some self-interest in my suggesting you go poke at the site, it’s also a nifty place to find inspiration for your next RPG adventure.
We are also looking at getting it posted onto Open Gaming Store. Open Gaming Store is similar to DriveThruRPG, though its audience is slightly smaller and does not carry some of the bigger-name brands. That said, many of their indie rule sets are still compatible with Pathfinder, 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons, and other popular game systems.
Finally, if we can figure out Amazon’s archaic rules, a hardcopy (as in literal book!) will be released there, as well.
I am treating this as my first big break into the industry and am really quite excited! The world of my novels-in-the-making will soon be available to play with your favorite RPG system! To give you a teaser (and there is self-interest in this preview as well), I’ll be posting the descriptions of the akor’mari race (as the race featured in Hottest Day...whenever that sees the light of day) as well as some locations from the island of Avaliet. Enjoy!
