*Shovels away heaps and clouds of dust*
It's been, what, 4 years since the last time I posted on here? Cool. The shortcut icon has been in my Firefox Quick Links bar for ages, but I never come here unless I'm looking for inspiration or resources. Le sigh.
Updates? The Florida thing lasted a year and a half and died in flames. Fuck that shit with a spiky cactus. But that's over now, and I'm back in Sweet Home Alabama. I have my own apartment, a wonderful girlfriend, a job that pays the bills, and I just feel like I've grown up a lot in the last 4 years.
I still watch anime and play video games, currently plowing through The Witcher III as a matter of fact. I don't think that's something I'll ever grow out of. Life stuff just kinda eats up all the time and resources you used to have to invest in those things. Which, in all honesty, is a small price to pay for the independence of living on your own.
I still draw a little bit, too. I just don't have a scanner, but I could take some pics with my phone, I guess. Might not be a bad idea. Who knows, you may see some of my more recent stuff on here eventually. I'd love to post the dwarf I drew from the Pathfinder campaign I was playing in. Maybe some of the short stories I've written. Also the map I'm making for a Dungeons and Dragons campaign I have in the works.
Speaking of Dungeons and Dragons, My long time love of fantasy and dragons has erupted in the past few years. It's sort of like my personal theme: Vikings, Dragons, and Epic Fantasy. Not so much of the Elves and Fey, but that's my girl's specialty, so there's an influence at least. If I ever do get around to posting things on here, expect them to go in that general direction.
Oh, new Twitter handle. @RidleyZahn. Someone stole my original name, RidleyofZebes, and I've moved away from the attempted unfortunate DarkwaterHealer and RidleyXJ rebrandings. So there ya have it. Go check it out for proof that I haven't been dead the last 4 years. Anyway, enough about me. This is what you're really here for:
AWESOME THINGS I FOUND THAT ARE AWESOME:
- MichaelCthulhu's Giant Sword Building Tutorials
- The RPGentlemen Dungeons and Dragons 5e Podcast
- Critical Role: Professional Voice Actors play Dungeons and Dragons
- THE FREAKING' CARTOGRAPHER'S GUILD. MAPS, MAPS and MORE MAPS
- One of the best gosh darn map makers/world builders I've ever seen
- One of the best gosh darn illustrators/artists I've ever seen
See y'all in another 4 years! (Or something)
