Troll Slang and Swear WordsReading through the forums of Trollcall.net I found these troll slang and swear words. If you are easily shocked or offended I suggest you do not read further.Troll Slang and Swear Words3 years ago in Personal More Like This
One of the most versatile words in the Zandali language. Vekk actually means crooked, dishonourable, but it is used as an expletive for all occasions.
Example - In Uldaman, the over-confident orc warrior in your party charges forward into a room and is attacked by seven dwarves at the same time. In the battle that follows everyone in the party comes close to being killed.
"Vekk! What the vekk are you doin', mon? You almos' got us killed, you vekking piece of vask."
A noun that means excrement. Vask is used to describe something that is unpleasant or worthless.
Example - A troublesome guild-mate tells you that he has been given special voodoo powers by the High Priest of a long-lost tribe of trolls.
"Hah! Dat is da biggest cart-load of vask I ever heard."
A Zandali word for a no

Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top HatWell! I mentioned before that we only needed to make 39 more sales to meet the first goal I ever made for our online shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/littlecasaroo?ref=si_shop) of 365 sales. Since then, we've made a few more sales, so now we only need to sell 13 1 more hat To reach that goal and I have confidence that we're definitely gonna do it!! :iconfinallyplz:Time To Give away a Free Tiny Top Hat5 months ago in Personal More Like This
We're going to randomly pick someone out of the last 39 sales to receive a completely free Tiny Top Hat! So if you want a chance to win the free hat, there's only 13 1 more spot left!
Also, I'd be happy to feature everyone on Deviantart who was one of these final 39 sales if you'll just let me know it was you!
I'm so excited for this and I hope everyone else is too! I appreciate all the support, and even if you can't buy a hat, I'd still love to do more contests and giveaways some time next year!!

The Hapless Female AssassinNew blog post describing what I hate about the way female assassins are designed.The Hapless Female Assassin10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Eye Eye!My name is Max and I am an eye whore. I confess. I am a complete eye nerd and my obsession is how to get the most realistic eyes possible for my little resin monsters. I have posted information about this obsession all over the show and felt, for the sake of extending my nerdiness, I should collect it all in one place. And that place is here, you lucky, lucky people.Eye Eye!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
My emphasis here is on realistic eyes for adult dolls, so the focus will be on small, photorealistic irises. There are many other sorts of eyes available that meet the needs of those who prefer a stylised, youthful or fantasy look. This is not my field and I won't be touching on that sort of stuff here. There is enough in this thing not to mess with that.
I am always keen to gather more eye-related information, particularly on the eye types I have least experience of, such as urethane and resin, so post thoughts, ideas and recommendations and, if it excites or informs, I will add it to this thing here.

Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

Anyone want a poem?I've decided that to get back into the loop of writing poetry... I'm going to open up to writing poems to anyone who wants to give me a situation from a story, show, pairing, or just plain real life. If you want a specific kind of poem, just let me know and I'll be happy to go with whatever form you want, otherwise it'll likely be freeverse. Specify the length it you want as well. Usually my poems from about 14-16 lines with 2-4 stanzas. Subject material can be anything from new romance, to angsty feelings, to break-up/heartbreak. It all depends on the situation provided. If you want specific charcters/names included feel free to add them to the situation description with a basic idea of personality/looks/attitude!Anyone want a poem?4 months ago in Personal More Like This
