fifth advent is closing in

The work on this religious detective sandbox set in the lands of Aenglum are delayed but not forgotten. How, when and what? That I can't say but you will get a glimpse on one of the illustrations from it. This one is made by my wife +Josefin Magnusson and her sweet diffrent style is always inspiring for me and my own creations. Oh, how I lack her patience! :)

P is for Postcards

MoRe PoStCaRdS!

---The number of postcards I sent, before the patreon project, could easily be counted on the fingers of just one hand. Now I must say it is both a fun privilage and hard work that let me send a couple of postcards each month to some awsome people out there in the world.---

---But very soon it is december and christmas is upon us, and I must do something fun of it all. Therefore I will change the rules of the patreon a bit and make the theme fitting with the holidays, I will also have guest-writers on the cards whom will decide the stats and flavor texts on the cards. In the celebration of christmas we must have some community gathering to all of these, even if there are the 15 coolest people in the patreon club, the cards will be found in lesser resolution here on the blog.---

---So, in my world, december will be a fun month full of christmas cards!!---

Oh, how fun if more of you were to send a christmas card!

---If this become a reality I also intend to get them out to the public to order so you can send christmas monsters to your relatives and friends!---

---I have reached out to some of you as writers of these cards and two awsome people jumped on this christmas train!---

Merry Christmas!

Final Days

"Hell is overflowing. And Satan is sending his dead to us. Why? Because you have sex out of wedlock. You kill unborn children. You have man-on-man relations. Same-sex marriage. How do you think your god will judge you? Well, friends, now we know. When there is no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth." 
- Teleevangelist, dawn of the dead 2004

It will be some Rotworld this evening. I have no preparation at all but who gives a damn when the end is near! All I know is that zombies are cool and need to be shot in the head. Rules and game will mostly be character driven sandbox survival with a lot of horror and cruelty.

I should ask some of you the details of american national guard and what equipment they have. I guess for the mood it is best to put the story in good old USA cause 99% of all zombie flicks are from there and that setting is totally workable. Would be cool to put it in sweden but we do not have guns, people or that bad foundation to build upon - we are not densly populated, have robust houses and it would not be as fun, The US it is.

319,000,000 zombies are more fun than 9,000,000 zombies.

ok, some points to figure out:

  • what type of zombies should I use? (I'm leaning towards a mix between the fast and slow and with some varieties, not really liking the exploding bloater. I don't want them to fast either. A most is the aim for the head tho.)
  • What started it all? Do people know this? (No, of couse. Some clues should be prepared in news and rumors)
  • Where should the players start? What will they encounter? 

"Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: [on a TV] They use... consume maybe 5% of the food available in the human body. With that small amount, the body is usual intact enough to be mobile when it revives.
TV Commentator: What are you saying? Are you saying...
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: [interrupting] It is worth saving? Is a bite victim worth saving? For all I know, it's the brains that are already dead. It's the idiots that are still alive.
TV Commentator: You can't help us deal with your calm illogical ways...
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: Illogical hell! I'm showing you a way we can up the food supply 20 times.
TV Commentator: Food supply for who?
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: For a whole specimen that is walking around out there in increasing numbers, we should...
TV Commentator: Are you saying we should FEED them? The bite victims...
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: What else are you going to do with them? Give me an alternative.

[various arguing among the studio audience is heard in the background]

TV Commentator: You scientists are supposed to come up with a way of solving this problem rather than feeding the opposition? It doesn't make any sense.
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: Well, I can think of another alternative. Since these things seem to congregate in heavily populated areas and since we have not touched upon any of our nuclear resources... why don't we drop bombs on all the big cities?
TV Commentator: You're not serious?
Dr. Millard Rausch, Scientist: I am deadly serious! What are the choices? They won't run out of food, that's the problem you see. And they won't run out of food as long as we're still alive."

The Block: Illustration 2

this is called "Some players are stuck in the 90s"

And then with sound!

The Block: Illustration 1

Court with the Muschroom King

Had to stop working on it cause it ate all the time. :)

Music in background: Apotygma Berzerk

The great drawing and writers block

My life is god damn awsome. BUT I have this block that prevents me from beeing creative, be it a quick dose of fall depression or a strange worm eating my brain.

That is why I hereby give a promise I will make 10 ugly, sweet, good, bad or otherwise splendid or disgusting illustrations and put on the blog today. A real trolly day that is and if you can't stand it it is just to close your eyes, block me or come kill me. (I rather not want to be dead tho)

Ok, off to do numro ono!
