 “Just tell me where to loose to drop him fast.  The eye? His gob? His jambags? Someone speak up, or I’ll just start guessing and shooting!”




I'm so glad that somebody other than me watched those extra Dwarf Scenes from BoTFA. :)

Here's Hori if you want to use him as a spectator:


Head: this head plus this white version of this beard and hair

Cape: Grey Cape

Body/Legs: Gandalf Torso and Legs

Weapon: this sword

Shield: A Brickforge Battle shield with the ram decal from Scorp's Northern Guard pack, but with the colors changed to the Horngofgasta goat.


If you don't use him, that's fine.

It only took me five months of procrastination, but I finally drew all the factions:

Nice work on Athens' armor, although I think the next step for you as an artist is to try a different style with character's faces. The style is fine when the scene is cartoonish (like Lego or emulating a cartoon) but when it is combined with more detailed things like a set of armor, or a lot of background material, it can come off as a bit in-congruent.


But maybe that's just me. Anyway, keep up the great work. 


That's just my art style, dude. I'm sorry if you don't like his simplistic face, but if my faces get too detailed, they tend to look older than they actually are. :P




Ah yes!


Seeing Lord Gwyn and Lord Talon fighting puts a smile on my face!


I'm also quite a fan of the concept art for your own universe. I'm curious to know more about the place(s).




Anyways, on to the art!


First up, a drawing I forgot to upload last Christmas:




Next, more Fantasy Doodles:




Next, Werewolves from my Age of Darkness RP Campaign:

Lastly, Patriot 96's Factions from his Fantasy RP:

There's too much to like in this update.


Between the Wulfgard-style "HEYA" meme to the Old School LEGO drawing, I just smiled.


Of course seeing my two characters go head to head is always great! Keep up the awesome work!

#487280 Star Wars Movies and Disney Fanfiction Thread

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 01 June 2018 - 02:56 PM

But I know people in this thread probably feel those movies DO do well as stand-alone films in that regard and I respect that but I just didn't feel that come through as much as I did in the OT or in Rogue One.


I think that Rouge One was the perfect combination of the awesome visuals of the OT and the emotionless acting of the Prequels. :P


My two cents is that I think that the tone of most Star Wars films have stayed the same (i.e. Cheesy Sci-fi flicks), which is why I enjoy the OT, Prequels, and sequel films equally. Some of them are better than others though, but I think that the Last Jedi got the short end of the stick with the neckbearded fanboys that weren't happy that it didn't follow their fan theory. I do have problems with all the wasted potential that is in the film (you know what I'm talking about if you've seen it), but it wasn't enough that I walked out of the theater angry.


I'm reserving judgement on Solo until I see it. What I'm expecting to see (and hope I do see) is Han going on a bunch of different adventures, kind like Cowboy Bebop.


EDIT: Speaking of fan theories, and on an unrelated note, I think Dan Harmon brings up a good point about them.

#487243 ZONE - Castle Greywatch (A Dying Breed - START)

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 29 May 2018 - 01:35 PM

"Word spread fast after the people of Illikon learned the truth, to the Empire, Tom is dead. He has an empty grave in Illikon. He told his parents to bury him there if he ever fell in battle."


Agethar was somewhat taken aback by this, but not as much as he should have been.


He knew what their policy, and therefore the Empire's policy, on people with Drake's...condition, but he was somewhat shocked with the callousness of it all.


"The Drakes are one of the Northwest's three major families under the Illikonis... each one rules their own city, and each one has a manor in Illikon. Don't know much beyond that."


"Given your particular experience with the area, do you have any thoughts on what could have gotten Indigo and Darin?"


"I might be able tae offer a few guesses." the Venator interrupted as he continued to eat his food "I doubt t'was Beastfolk what did th' pair in, or land-based Beastfolk at least. Plus, what with 'em being so close tae Deltalund, perhaps they were lost tae th' nearby swamp-lands. I've heard stories from about the quest fer th' mage Letom that mention a specimen of Creep takin' over part o' th' place."




After the normal introductions that all Cainines performed, Maugrimm lead Bullseye out of the study and towards the kitchen.


He would show off his relationship with the Venator Cooks to his new friend: both would eat like kings!




Cyrus reinserted his straw and finished his drink while the conversation continued.


"Though now that ya mention suspects in your order, my friend did keep going on and on about a friend he made in the Venatori that disappeared for his own personal reasons. Some kinda self-imposed exile, real Achaean Tragedy-like. Can't remember the poor buggers name for the life of me, but does that match the story of one of your people out there, boss-man?"

"There are a few that fit that description, but I have a strong suspicion as to the most likely. The timing of his return is too convenient for my liking. Add the protest of opening quarters and we start to get a picture. What did your friend have to say about this man and his exile. Did he ever talk of the order?


"Told me the fella saved his neck many a time, but got zapped by some kind of demonic magic. That's why he left civilization, wasn't sure if he might be a danger to others, whatever got done to him. Though if he's back, hopefully that means his problems got solved."
"Son of a.. I was never quite sure of the boy, not since Gwen. But this is something else." He gingerly pulled himself out of his chair. "We may have a monster or a demon in our midst. I say we find out exactly what it is that Voros doesn't want us to find in his quarters."


"I hate to disagree with you, Crestwell," the Venator said as he rose from his chair "but I doubt that we have to go far to figure out what he doesn't want us to find, if you catch my meaning..."


He looked at the others and said "We need to think about this. He's supposedly been off the map for a while, but he returned in time for this meeting with Agethar of Bjornburg. In addition to this during the investigation of a Faustus Tome in Artorius, three Venatori were involved: the Hill-Dwarf Daisy and the Elves Jed and Forge, and all three interacted with Voros multiple times during the investigation. We might do well to interrogate these three before confronting Voros directly, after all, if we scare him, he could run back into the wild once again."

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 26 May 2018 - 06:46 AM

"It's not, I went there shortly after a long mission in Rognosst Swamp. I'm familiar with Cristina and I'm familiar with the region. It's a good city, ruled by the Drakes. And it's full of good people... all of whom respect their ruling family. It'd be best if we didn't mention Tom or what happened to him."


"That goes without sayin'." Agethar said, clearly surprised that Caiden would talk about Tom and his...condition here of all places.


"But I'm surprised tha' 'is family has their own city," he continued "I always thought that th' Drakes lived in a Manor in Illikon."




Maugrimm watched as the new dog followed the new lady and the Venators out of the room.


The dog followed them into the study, where he moved over to the new dog, where he waited for it to acknowledge his existence.




Cyrus followed the others into the study, where Crestwell pulled out his bottle of brandy and poured everyone who accompanied them a glass of it.


"Let's start from the beginning, if you don't mind. How do you know Silvius?"


The very beginning?  Before I was born, really.  My late dad, Horace Meliora, actually met Silvius in this very order, probably in this very castle.  You might not remember him, he’d barely worn the cloak and arrowhead for a day when he got his sword arm torn off by a verrbjorn.  Always told me he’d been lucky through all his training, only to lose it on that very first hunt. But you can’t span a crossbow with one arm, and he couldn’t read, so he’d be useless in a room like this; so off he went, wondering what in Artemis’ name he was gonna do now. Silvius was his partner on that first and last hunt, though, and always felt it was his fault, especially since the bear so happened to be going for his neck when my dad’s arm got in the way.  When he tracked down where my father ended up settling down, the stubborn blighter made a point of visiting whenever he was near Appledale. The two of ‘em always laughed at how they didn’t roll too far from the old tree, if you take my meaning.  Well, Silvius became like an Uncle, even watched me for a bit after my parents bought it, but I’d no interest in following my dad’s footsteps, so we went our separate ways. Then I got this letter a couple weeks ago, and here we are.”


While they were talking, Cyrus produced a small bamboo straw from his belt and carefully inserted it through his aventail. He then began to quietly slurp away at his brandy.


 "The kinda bossy one, your stand-in leader or something, mentioned other Venatori were missing, too?  I've been thinking that maybe Silvius and his partner were the last to disappear, and maybe he noticed the first ones and figured they weren't a coincidence?  You lot'd probably know more than me on that front."


There was a poot sound as Cyrus' straw suddenly became extremely loose and began to wobble around.


"You might want to use a bit more...tact when 'the kinda bossy one' is sitting across from you." the Venator said as he removed the straw.

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 23 May 2018 - 11:23 AM

In case anybody is interested, here's the three quests and who's chosen to do what so far:


  • Pellio of Krisa & Allan of Whitehorn

Lyneth Brys

Athens Astoria

  • Loke of Pluton & Silvius of Appledale

Sivan and Asti

Kate Meloria

  • Indigo of Deltalund & Darin of Caltha

          Holli Emberleaf

          Auric Khasim

          Agethar Twin-axe

          Caiden Voros

          Krystina Ravenswift (?)

  • Undecided

Araven Karial

Cyrus Malcolm


I put Cyrus in Undecided, since I originally wanted to see if he could seduce Lyneth, but I'd rather investigate the mystery of why Cappy's Inquisitor is here.




 You got something to hide under that pretty helmet of yours?”


Yes, but you can't see it yet because I want to build suspense so that everyone is shocked by it. :P

From what I can gather, three groups of Venator duos vanished in three different locations. We are starting out with twelve player characters, we could investigate in one of two ways:


1: Investigate each location with three groups of four, which would be quicker but have a higher chance of casualties.

2: Investigate each location as a group, but move slower.


But I think the bigger mystery is why Capulet has an Inquisitor character in this campaign. Maybe she's hunting whatever's lurking in the forbidden rooms...

This is probably a pipe dream, but I think it would be cool if some of the more memorable members of the Scorpiontowne Guard showed up.


The ones I'm thinking of are Thrawn, Joker, Sgt. Crusty, and Ocelot, but its up to you.
