So I've actually managed to keep at least somewhat active here, even if my inbox still hates me. Well, I suppose I might ass well actually explain what's going on with the flood of characters. This will cover most of them, there's plenty of other stuff going on as well, but by far the majority of what's been upload have been involved in one primary project:

I'M WRITING A NOVEL!

These characters will be featured mostly in a large medieval fantasy story that I'm assembling, hopefully for actual publishing. There's side stuff as well, background, characters, mini-stories. It's actually gotten to the point where I've decided to write my own compendium a-la Silmarillion style. While some stuff is going up free here, even more is going up on Patreon, be it early access looks, or even some patron only goodies. I've been pushing hard to keep up the momentum, which is why so many character pics, so expect me to invest in plenty more
(artists open for comms plz post a comment).

In spite of this huge rush, it is a pretty big thing, especially with a lot of what I want to do with it, so anyone wanted to get a look at upcoming plans, extras, ect, I would seriously appreciate you heading over to Patreon. I'm planning on adding even more extras soon as well, since that covers all my endeavors, so it won't just be novel related goodies. What some of those are though you'll have to wait and see~

The other big thing going on is, while I never /really/ closed them, it's been so long that I guess I do have to
'reopen' my own written commissions. In spite of being in the process of writing a book, it's surprising to find that writing something else doesn't actually seem to hinder that much, just as my fanfic accounts. So, as a good means to help bolster my novel related budget, so in the true spirit of being a writer I'm now trying to use writing to pay for my writing. Enjoy that circular logic for a bit.

Pricing related ramblings:

Because of the nature of writing, I'm going to post average prices, which will vary both higher AND lower depending on length and content. Certain material, like explicit content, will tend towards the higher end of the spectrum, but you'll know before I start what to expect.

-5~7 USD per 1k words on average for straight up written work, paragraphs of story/description/ect.

-Rest of the list to come when I average out some good ballparks, but feel free to ask about whatever you're thinking since just because it isn't here doesn't mean I won't/can't do it, just that I need to hammer out the details.

The minimum for anything is 3 USD. Fees make it hard to go lower, and that's already losing a lot.

If you are wanting to pay with points. I am using the conversion rate of 100 points = 1 USD. I am aware that is not actually the conversion rate, but I do not believe that I can convert them without core
(which I don't want), which still takes out a chunk when withdrawn, and they are otherwise only usable on dA. Consider the extra a convenience fee.

Donate

nikolai60 has started a donation pool!
41 / 1,000
I'm making an RPG, first time taking a stab at anything like this, but if anyone is willing to, some donations would be appreciated.

Please note if you wanna donate actual money, prizes are same as points on a 100 points to 1 USD. (seems to be the standard from I've seen others use)

I'm hoping if I get enough points I can commission some artwork for cut-scenes and events to pretty things up from all the sprites wandering around. I estimate the current goal of 1k points should at least be a start if I get lucky.

An overview can be read here: fav.me/d6wy1pt To be updated.

Rewards Will Stack, and probably be updated/added since the game's grown from original concepts.

50+ points donated gets you in the credits.

100+ points gets an NPC named after you. (There's towns, plenty of people)

250+ points gets a release 24 hours early.
