Pinned toot

My is long lost to the depths of my timeline, so here it is again.

I write, I draw, and lately, I've started to make comics. Specifically, I'm doing a illustrating parts of my campaign. I also started to run 5e over discord for some friends.

I have another account @nebulos where I post my non rpg related art and writing, and also WIPs of my comics.

(Also, I'm part of the welcome cabal for, if you're wondering why you're already following me.)

Something extremely odd has happened, I have begun to multiply! Which is to say, I have another mastodon account now.

I'm still trying to figure out exactly how to do this identity management business, but so far, I think I'm going to stick to posting rpg related stuff here. @nebulos will be a little more art and writing focused. Random statuses will be distributed evenly among both. I don't plan on doing much duplication, so feel free to give both a follow.

All my daily creatures from early April, pretty much in chronological order (left to right).

I often forget that drawing takes continuous effort, so I will try to keep this lineup around as a reminder. =]

Walking by a pond the other day, my partner made a remark about water striders: their ecological niche is so specific to a certain scale---any larger or smaller and the physics they rely upon simply disappear.

Reading about quantum mechanics and relativity, I can't help but feel the same way about humans.

"So you've narrowly passed your +4 athletics check to not careen your rocket powered wingsuit into the underside of a police cruiser, but---"

"I want to do a loop!"

"Uh, okay. If you fail, you'll set off a chain of events that eventually leads to you being stranded unarmed deep in hostile territory, and if you succeed a loop. Are you sure you---"

"I do a loop!"

Everyone's sharing the close-up image of the black hole itself, which is neat, but here is a zoomed-out view of the gigantic mass of space-stuff that it is busily consuming:

Maya's pretty sure she was a pirate prior to her cryosleep induced amnesia, but as a reward for assisting Rumreign with their rebellion was made into a naval officer.

Because their navy has a size of exactly one, this means she gets all of the titles.

Supreme Fleet Commander Maya.

She really doesn't do white.

Another fun fact from the press conference: M87 is apparently so super massive it's event horizon is the size of the solar system itself!

Did you know, to get the data from their telescope array at the South Pole, they had to wait for inclement weather and fly a hard drive with their data?

In general, the fastest way to transfer their petabytes of data, was to fly a scientist with a hard drive over to wherever they wanted to transmit it.

I'm up at 6am to watch the Event Horizon Telescope announcement!

Aspect (Consequence) of the week:

Future Myopia: You pushed your augmentation too hard and now you've got double vision, but for time instead of space. Spend the rest of the session accidentally walking into things that aren't there yet and and answering questions before they're asked.

I mean, to the naked eye, it probably looks like just like soul searing brightness as relativistic velocities smoosh matter into deluges of energy

But I'm still so excited.

It's only a picture of the supermassive object around which our
Entire Galaxy
rotates, taken with a
Distributed Planetary-scale Telescope.

We are only confirming with visible light the existence of one of the most mind boggling theoretically predicted objects of the 20th century.

I am only
Out Of My Mind
excited for the first picture of a black hole.

-sigh- I'm just not cut out for GMing, I think. As much as I like making fiction, I think I just have to do it at my own pace.

Sorry to all the folks that I subjected to it in the process of figuring this out...

Thought I'd give this line-less art a try. It was much faster than fiddling with cleaning up lines and then trying to draw within them. Also interesting to be mostly working on one layer. This took me maybe an hour and a half?

This is Maya, as she appears to herself in her nightmares / premonitions.

Flavor text: "...remade into something powerful, purposeful, ruthless, efficient. A precision instrument of a greater force. And she didn't like it, not at all."
