Currently Happening & FIle this under WTF?

So obviously this has been under a bit of a standstill if not an outright fucking slumber. This is of course, due to time. I have a large file folder on my shelf, brimming with notes for Dragon breath , Vomting Dragon and vairous uspplement, adventures, and etc.There is soooo much there, it pisses me off to no fucking end ot to be able to work on it. Hell I even have 3 pencilled pages ready for inks there.

SO I SIT HERE STEWING TO FUCK over not working on this, but currently my hours are filled, and even sleep right now seems to be a bit of an option with the current workload I’m taking on.  Between Zombie Years, Creature Entertainment, and various Freelance work, I have no time. And It’s not that I couldn’t squeeze it in like a Drug Mule, it’s that I want to HAVE the time to do it. I want to be able to really make it as kick ass as i see it, and if I don’t and it happens to come out like shit, well then I would really be mad at myself.

When I get to it, it’ll be beautiful.

Till then, hold on, and no worries, you’ll probably some preliminaries hit my DeviantArt account soon, and maybe even a change of name, here and there (mostly over coincidences like this, that I hope won’t suck) but also the expansion on the idea later.

All in due time, he tells himself, all in due time.

So now i’m going to go smoke a cig, and scream mentally at this wall for a bit, and hopefully soon, we will realize DRAGONBREATH together.

Keep rollin’ them dice…

“Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things”

Alright so as you can see things seemingly screeched to a halt here on the blog. Well, that’s true as all the 9 hells, but not off the blog. Off the blog I’ve been jumping around more than a Blink Dog on Crystal Meth.

Now Originally this blog was to be a support site, with supplements and little things here and there for Dragonbreath, a fantasy webcomic I’m currently working on. In that time I decided to stretch my legs and have a go writing extra material here and there and in that got caught up with deadlines.

I hate Deadlines. They are my favored enemy.

I like working with a buffer, a long list of work in front to give me time to develop what will be coming and jumping the gun had just put me into too much crap to do that.

So Dragonbreath isn’t stopped, not at all, I’m working on it as I type with ink covered hands, it’s needing to get finished up and “Buffered” so as to work smoothly.

I’m imagining an August or September opening but right now their is a change up happening over at WCN so we’re kind of waiting on that too. heck it’s halting the work on Zombie Years and Vigil too, and those have already allotted plenty of pages and such.

Fireball Fridays 4.25.2008

At the Airport waiting to leave Rockford back to Miami, luckily, thank the Dark Seven, they have WI-fi so might as well take these two hours to write up some stuff.

+yeah I know yesterday was the first break form NPC Thursdays I’ve had here but unfortunately I’ve had a bunch of travelling to do and just didn’t let me really work on it. I’m gonna really aim for getting somthing up today, so be on the look out.

+You want maps? Maps, baby.

+ A little thing on Analog gaming

+I am workin on the maps for all the sites and sounds of Borel. Getting through all the mire of it, it’s really so uncomplicated it just takes a lot of drawing. RIght now I’m trying to see about an interface for everythin, but that a long stage goal once I have everyything in step then I’ll see about putting in the huge city interface in.

+BEHOLD GOBLIN COCK!

+Dragonbreath’s script is awesome right now and I’m really excited about gttting to draw it already, but again travel plans and such have hindering a bit so once I’m back i hope to get osme good chunky days of drawing.

+Remember the “Choose your Adventure” books? Here’s a sweet look at some of the Steve Jackson version that have come out in the past.

+Did you hear/read about this shit with WOTC and 4th edition licensing? I mean I really, really don’t care. I see why WOTC said what they said, and I understand the reaction, but c’mon folks, you don’t see it? If WOTC makes 4th edition and say companies are making supplements for it, wouldn’t it defeat the selling of 4th edition if those same companies keep producing 3.5 stuff? The whats the point? Now I dig what say Paizo is doing, and making they’re own brand while building on the 3.5 stuff, and it even looks hella good (especially with the Wayne Reynolds art) but really we shouldn’t worry as consumers, because it just means people will by working harder to get our buck, and as creators it just means we have more avenues to make and sell so much more.

+D&D Fundraising?

+ QUESTION: to all you folks out there, what is some of the music you guys like to put on during D&D? Sure we all like the LOTR soundtrack or the Conan soundtrack but what else? I use a lot of Iron Maiden, Rammstein, and other heavy but rhythmic stuff, something to signify battle. When I used to play as a kid, we would put on Slayer and Cannibal Corpse on for fight scenes. What do you guys like?

+ Reincarnation in D&D and:

Bard rock
+Video coverage on the upcoming 4th edition G4’s MMO report

Now to see if i can get home today!

The Vomiting Dragon: FIREBALL FRIDAYS! 4/11/08

Ok so another thing I’m going to hope to keep doing on here is the “Friday Fireball!” which will generally be have links of whats going on D20/D&D wise and also with the site and with Dragonbreath.

1- “Dragonbreath” right now is being worked on. I’ve had some serious thoughts in the direction I want to take the comic, but decided to take all directions, but just in a certain order. So with that in mind a lot of small re-writes but overall, no real changes to the art It will still be the silly fucking thing that it is, just with an actual story involved…..I think…

2-NPC Thursdays is being worked on if only to give myself a little bit of buffer in between various works I’m doing. It’s really not hard just making up a character and give it a voice, at least for me. My thing is that at times I just know when to stop. I have to also go back and put devides on them so that the long intros don’t really mess up the flow of this page Also look for the overall plot running through them and how they tie here and there with Dragonbreath later on

3-It’s sorta funny to me, almost always, when something ike D&D or comics or certain music (Metal, Industrial, etc.) gets noticed in the mainstream media. Almost always they have it garrishly wrong, and have insipid surface-only point of views. In comics they always reference the old Batman tv series with dumb-shit titles like “Bam, Boom, Pow Comics!” or in music, they have either “teehee” angle on Goth stuff, like saying “how silly!” or if they look at metal they put on the Hallowen decorations and talk about how “dark” some faggoty limp wristed new metal band. So when they cover D&D, I noticed they seems ot be at odds and have to write honestly about it, and one can tell when the writer has had any XP with the game (get it? der-her!). Still though this article did shed a good light on the upcoming 4th edition and how for the veteran gamers still playing, the people getting into it now, and even those who may have hung up their Vorpal Sword a long time ago can come back to the game, and make it better than ever. The last part where the schmuck “if you were any kind of nerd, you played D&D” makes me want circle kick him in the nads though.

4-In other news, they’ll be a little D&D skit thing in an upcoming 30 Rock: On the difference between herself and her character: “I definitely am a nerd in real life, (but) I think Liz might be a bigger nerd than me. One of the writers, in an upcoming episode, (wrote) a flashback of her playing Dungeons Dragons in college. I never played Dungeons and Dragons. That kind of sucks…talk about breaking a guys’ illusion. Way to go Tina Fucking Fey!

5-One of the better “Kids-coming-of-age-into-D&D” stories I’ve heard. And I can understand being a jerk with them too, since well I would be too if I had kids. Actually I’d be a real ashole.

6-Another “Old Geek shows Young Geek” moment, but in support of turn off the screen week. You know in the near future, many garage sale will bereft with D&D stuff, all over the place.

7-You know they should just make a permanent sculpture of D20 there both for the students and in honor of Gygax

8-” Re: D&D 4th :: My Paladin Hurls You Into The Sun!” is the best D&D forum thread title I have ever seen….and a good suggestion.

9- “Dungeons of Dread” Miniature supplement out and with 4th edition rules. I‘m not partial to the WOTC miniatures, really (I like the old “Chainmail” figures though) . Never been a huge CLIX fan either so I’m not too excited, thought it would be cool to buy it just to see some of the rules.

10-And finally a review of the actual D&D Insider program that’ll come out with the D&D game. It looks fucking great, and I’m really digging the character generator. Of course my one fucking complaint is that WOTC decided people who use MACS AREN’T WORTH MAKING A VERSION FOR! GAAAH!

Well thats it for now, I have to work this weekend so I maybe a bit off the radar, but in the meantime, please make with the clicks and tell me whats up! See ya later, Mindflayer!

Anybody knew where….

…where I can preregister for the fourth edition? Looky

Another thing, I was reading the preview book, “Worlds and Monsters” and fourth edition seems promising, if only because the rules for CR and such will be revamped into a more balanced outlook. Now as for the monster….meh…

Good blogs I’m reading of late, Vizhon’s and Jonathan Jewels D20 resources, both wealthy in knowledge and good ideas.

NPC Thursdays:About it

NPC Thursdays are going to be every week, so every week I’ll be posting a new NPC from the CIty of Borel and from Dragonbreath who may or may not come out. You’ll have stats, history and motives of each characters, advice on how they may fit in, and Character portraits and sometimes, full illustration. You can use them in your Borel campaign or on your own!

Also feel free to email me or post on here how you would use them and how it helped in your campaign! By the other side of the Gold Piece, tell me any problem of glitches you may see too! All that and it’s free!
