#486835 Dalton's Assorted Artwork and Random Stuff

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 17 March 2018 - 11:31 AM

Looking good, as usual, Dalton! :D I have to agree with Nightstalker that your art has come a long way since you started. I'm particularly enjoying your coloring and the way you handle shading.


That flamingo in particular looks really good, to be honest. I... don't really have much to offer by way of suggestion, as I'm incredibly rusty in the art scene, myself. But I'm intrigued by this "mysterious venator." Maybe he's who you're signing up as if I ever manage to get those sign-ups started? :P

Yeah, we're aware. Raschu was an active member of SSLF for several years. He made a lot of those creations in NR MOC contests.


We miss him. :/ If you look on most of the individual MOCs there, Scorp left reviews on most of them, too.

#486697 Delving Too Deep OOC - Rules, Character List, and Chat

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 22 February 2018 - 07:52 PM

Conversations between the characters are 100% optional. If you guys want to do it, go for it. If no one wants to write conclusions or final interactions or anything, you can consider this the ending. But if anyone addresses Caid, I'll respond.


I planned all along for Flametongue to be the dragon sketch I did last year...




I started coloring him for that purpose, but I never finished.

#486694 ZONE - The Forbidden Halls of Clan Dimmlundar

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 22 February 2018 - 05:53 PM

Korvarl set to work putting together the summoning ritual to call a celestial being to their aid. Caiden ducked out of the room with a growl stuck in his throat, and Percula trailed along after him.


The others stayed put, watching as the ritual was underway. Some of them gathered around to pray to their various deities, each quietly hoping a servant of their respected god or goddess would be the one to appear.


What appeared sent everyone to their knees, regardless of their faith. In a blinding flash of pure golden light appeared a tall angel, six enormous wings of white feathers spreading from his back, his muscular body clad in a suit of purest silver and gold armor. A winged helm crowned by a glowing golden halo covered his face, save for the blue light pouring from his eyes. On his belt hung a massive sword, its crosspiece and hilt together forming an image of open wings.


The being of purest Benevolence lifted his head, looking each one of them over. One by one, they bowed his head under his gaze as he looked upon their souls.


"This servant of Apophis you speak of," said the angel, "has broken his shackles and committed acts of atrocity beyond even the ordinary machinations of demons. Ordinarily..." he allowed a brief pause, "this would nonetheless be the business of mortals. Mortals allowed the demon here. It is not the place of celestials to meddle in the affairs of those who damn themselves. But you could have just as easily summoned a demon to answer your pleas... They would have been willing. Yet you chose the forces of good. For this, I will aid you."


With a casual wave of his hand, he broke the summoning circle. The bindings could never dream to hold a being of his power - truly a powerful celestial had answered their summons. Perhaps even powerful enough to challenge Xiraloc, if his appearance were anything to go by.


"However," said the celestial as he stepped out of his would-be bindings, "I will not condone the greed of mortals. I am aware Xiraloc sleeps in a treasure vault. If any of you takes a single treasure beyond this sword demanded of you, I will relinquish my aid and leave you at the mercy of the demon. Is this understood?"


They had no choice but to agree. With this rule thus set, the celestial led the way back to the clanhall under which Xiraloc lay in his age-long slumber.


Waking the demon proved simple with the celestial leading the way. Because the celestial drew his golden sword, which instantly caught flame, and swung for the slumbering demon's head. Xiraloc awoke and formed a blade from seemingly thing air. While the two battled and nearly brought the entire clanhall crashing down on their heads, the adventurers slipped by just enough to acquire Dáinsleif: a beautifully made sword, its blade engraved in runes and its hilt wrapped in fine leather. There was no mistaking it - it looked like the sword of a hero.


The celestial of Benevolence slew Xiraloc - even if he lost two wings in the process and several pieces of his armor, receiving some slashes that left trails of glowing golden blood. Xiraloc lay defeated, banished back to Hell - and the adventurers were allowed to depart with their prize.



((Some quick trivia: Originally, players would be able to choose whether to work with the celestial or simply dismiss him. Players could summon a demon lord instead, and pay a higher price for his aid but acquire many more treasures. That's the short version. :P ))




The journey back out of the Forbidden Halls of Clan Dimmlundar seemed almost simple compared to the journey getting there. But as they finally stepped back out into the open, frigid air of the Jagged Edge, they saw a figure approaching them - Agni himself.


Just as everyone was asking themselves how the hell did he get here, Agni put on a smile and said he would take the sword now. Several adventurers demanded answers for that binding put on them. But since it was only broken once the sword was back in Agni's hands, they were forced to give over the blade.


Agni took it with thanks... And then he took a few steps away from them, saying that he would explain everything. In particular how he got here after all the strife they faced in the Edge even reaching this point.


It was because Agni was a dragon.


The change was rapid. One moment, there was a dwarf - the next, the single most enormous red dragon any of them had ever imagined stood before them, all enormous wings, horns, and a great crest on his head.


The dragon seemed pleased with providing this revelation. It had been to long, he said, since mortals gazed upon his magnificence. Yes, he put a bind on each of them to assure that they would retrieve the sword and not fail him. The city was warded against his entry, as - long ago - King Hreidmar himself stole this very sword from the dragon's hoard on his mad, greed-driven conquest of Nidavellir. The dragon decided they deserved, after all they went through, to know the truth: Dáinsleif was one of the only weapons in the mortal world capable of harming something such as a dragon. It was forged long ago by an ancient, primordial race now forgotten by the ignorance of Men: a race with the blood of wolves in their veins.


But now Dáinsleif was his once more, and his to keep. Once more would no mortal disturb the hoard of the great dragon Flametongue.


The dragon gave them one last parting gift: he cleared a path for them down the mountain, scorching everything in his wake. He said it would not be difficult for them to find and follow back to their own civilizations, for the Jagged Edge was no place for mortals.


And, with that, the dragon Flametongue took his leave - and promised they would never meet again.

Incoming summary post. Warning, it's very simplistic.

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 10 February 2018 - 07:54 AM

Sorry about the incredible slowness. Things have been... especially rough lately.


Working on getting a topic up, though, and posting some kind of conclusion for Delving Too Deep.

#486455 Resurrection

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 20 January 2018 - 10:47 PM

Wow, overwhelmingly for the Venator campaign. :lol: I'm cool with that!


I'll have a sign-up topic up in a few days; might be more like a week or so, depending on how long it takes me to finish detailing my outline. In the meantime, the sign-up requirements will be pretty simple: just be a Venator.


Feel free to start working on your character(s), and if anyone has any questions, don't be shy. :D



I'm up for both, but I'm leaning towards the Northern RP because I know that I'm just going to play as Agethar again for the Venator one.

Except you sound very bored with that. So play as someone else, if you've lost interest in Agethar. There's absolutely no hard and fast rule requiring you to play as him simply because it's a Venator campaign. You should only play as a character you're actually interested in exploring.

#486441 Resurrection

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 19 January 2018 - 07:29 PM

I've come up with a few concepts; still vague, at this point, but they're starters. I'm going to go ahead and toss up the general ideas here so those interested can let me know which one sounds best.


1: We play as the villains. I kind of wanted to do this with the Weeping Mage in Chasing Shadows, but since I didn't communicate it that well and didn't rp it too well, he ended up dying like a total dumb@$$. I would love to play as either a Hidden or Umbra Coven character, or at least some sort of mage related campaign so I could bring back Bale.


2: Some sort of campaign where we don't really play as any major faction, just mercenaries. I need an excuse to play as these guys

I have always wanted to do a villain RP; I attempted some long in the past, but they never really went very well for assorted reasons, including that most players don't have much interest in playing very evil characters. I always wanted to do one involving the Chaos races, or possibly even something set in Nidavellir...


Delving Too Deep was essentially my latest foray into the "mismatched group of adventurers/mercenaries of no particular faction." The primary issue comes back to what Sareth mentioned about a total lack of party cohesion. I may try another of those in the future, but I'm going to steer away from those for now, I think.



So, here are my current ideas:

  • The Venator RP from that old poll. I wouldn't expect or require anyone to play any existing characters, and it wouldn't require any previous knowledge. All players would be Venatori, with possibly some case made for someone outside the faction, as long as they're still Imperials (such as knights). I'm actually getting increasingly fond of this one; I was pretty fond of it when I first came up with it, too.
  • A RP focusing on Northrim and Nordling clans. Would include politics, adventure, and lore exploration. Berserkers and werewolves would be involved. All players would be Nordlings of potentially various clans, with perhaps some leeway for outsiders who have integrated themselves, but they would have to have extremely close allegiance to a particular clan in order to suit the RP.

Note that all of these RPs would be low fantasy/low magic and require no prior knowledge of Errant events (although, it being a persistent world, players' actions in it will remain constant). I often feel like Errant is too high in magic, more often than not, and it'd be fun to try steering away from that for a while and at least trying to do something closer to the heart of the setting. :P


Let me know what you think. And if anyone has any suggestions at all, or any particular region or bit of lore they'd like to explore, or faction they'd like to be a part of, or even a specific character they'd like to use, let me know. I want to make something everyone will be inspired to join and stick with. :)

#486426 moving Wicktures that you are watching

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 17 January 2018 - 03:40 PM

I also watched Thor: Ragnarok which was alright, I guess. I loved all the mythological/sci-fi designs in this one, and I even liked that ship that they made into a Lego set. Hela, Skurge and Korg are definitely the best parts of this movie, and it was fun to watch Kate Blanchett run around as  Evil Galadriel for the whole movie. The biggest problem that I had with the movie is that the special effects in some scenes were really noticeable

So you were angry about Wonder Woman butchering Greek mythology, but the complete and total merciless devastation of Norse mythology in Thor: Rangarok is fine?

#486420 Werewolf's Writing Tidbits

Posted by Maverick-Werewolf on 15 January 2018 - 09:17 PM

Well, a friend had me write a big Tumblr post about the things I made in 2017 that I'm proudest of.


One of those things very, very much includes my Guild Wars 2 drabbles. To quote that Tumblr post:

Last year, Taff and I started to RP together in Guild Wars 2, and I really wasn’t really expecting to find my inspiration to write again, there or anywhere else. But I did find it there. And, more importantly, I rediscovered the ability to actually enjoy writing something. These drabbles are pretty definitely some of the best things I’ve written for a long time, and now I’m finally starting to write again thanks to it all. As a bonus, I don’t think I’ve ever shipped two characters as hard as I ship Caid and Sadja, and that’s helped make these an absolute joy to write. I expect I’ll miss these two during our GW2 breaks and have to come back to them pretty frequently, since they’re something extra special to me now (plus, anything I write involving Sadja will be at least 1k words long, guaranteed).


The drabbles are entitled Tempered Hearts, and Taff's accompanying drabble series is Come Up For Air. They're interconnected, and they're now fully edited and uploaded on AO3, a fan-fiction site with a nice system. Be sure to read the notes for each chapter, so you can find Taff (my RP partner and creator/player of Sadja Shielding)'s drabbles that correspond with mine. Her writing is absolutely excellent, and these drabbles aren't even the finest example of her work.


So if you want to read what I've really, really enjoyed writing most lately... go there and take a look. Feel free to post comments about them here, as well, though, since AO3's account system is based around invites, so it's not super comment-friendly unless you're a writer on there, too.


Fair warning, though - the drabbles contain strong language and very mild sexuality.

So I want to get Errant going again. I may not be as active as I used to be, since I have such ambitious projects underway at the moment. But I hate to let this stay dead, especially now that a new year's getting properly going.


I'm not going to bother making a poll and such, since what I'm looking for right now is discussion and opinions. What would you guys like to see next from Errant this year? What kind of campaign(s) would you want to participate in, and what do you want from them? Give me all your thoughts.

Ocey, my internet sucks too hard to live stream at night much anymore. Especially while other people are using it.


I'm relying solely on you to at least mention, just subtly, if they announce DMC5 there tonight. Because I have to know. Think you can do that for me? Think you won't, y'know, overlook it or forget?

HA! Oh, wow. Thrawnie, do you try to be the best, or does it just come naturally to you? :P


Don't mind if I do use her. :D Thanks! Skyrim is one of the instances where I actually do play as a female character, and my own attempts to make Magnhild were... mediocre, at best.


I'll be in my bunk

Wolfie, Zachary Levi is here and he's looking really buff! He made a really good joke about microtransactions, too. Chuck doing the lord's work.

If I wasn't married to Chris Redfield, I would've married that man already, I swear.


I tuned in to the awards just long enough to - thankfully - catch that bit, thanks to Burgs letting me know about it on Discord. :P I didn't know the awards were tonight, aaahh - I'm so out of it lately. But I can't watch them anyway, cause my internet sucks too bad...


So, once again, I will just go through this thread afterward and read your summary and reactions, Ocey. :P


But YEAH SERIOUSLY THAT MAN'S SHOULDERS. DAYUM, ZAC. <3 I'm hyped are you hyped *ahem* I mean... video games, yes.
