The midsummer sun rose once again above Beacon. Its gentle warmth spread through the campus ground. Student life continued, unfazed by the scale of the earlier assault. As noon approached, nonchalant chatter slowly filled the academy halls.
“Well done, children. Once the results are out, please reflect on your performance. To those that passed, reward yourselves adequately. To those who didn’t pass…reflect on your mistakes. This is a bit too late in the game for you to not perform. Class dismissed.”
With those parting words, Epli Stardream ended an uneventful examination session. The children often doubted the value
“You know my name...so, who are you? What are you here for?”
Epli asked cautiously as she narrowed her eyes and adjusted her aim. Within the confined boundary of the room, her target had little room to dodge. At near point blank range, she couldn’t possibly hope to miss. Yet, to her questioning, her target’s response was almost insultingly dismissive.
“You can call me Dust Monarch, ‘Miss Stardream’. Kids these days are so very cute…don’t you think?” The girl smiled back with an eerie nonchalance. Casually pacing the width of the room, she let her teasing remarks settle in. As she m
Thanks to the efforts of AriBanks and her supporters, you’ve gotten a glimpse of DeviantArt Eclipse. So now you probably want in? We’re stoked that you want access to the new redesign and to experience DeviantArt in dark or light.

We’ll add you to our growing list of deviants interested in stepping into the new phase with Eclipse. Keep in mind Eclipse will be steadily rolled out to deviants in batches over the coming weeks and months, so don’t fret if you haven’t received a notification just yet!
Well... it's been a long time since I even glimpsed back here at my deviantART account. XD
Lots of stuff had been going down this past year... most notably, schoolwork, development of my very own Doom mod, and a nasty car accident. Yet, I've still found the time to draw... but not really much time to upload here.
I've all but left deviantART, now that I'm primarily on Discord. And I've been showing off my art there, a lot... especially the drawings I hadn't uploaded here.
I had been trying my hardest to come back here to at least let people know what's been going on these past several months... but it took a while.
Either way, I will te
Can it really be 7 years... if I was inactive for one of those years? XD
I've been lurking around here for about a year, but not really doing anything. Here, that is.
Out there, I've been active with a couple of other projects.
Almost one year ago, I began development for a Doom mod that would aim to faithfully recreate the weapon behaviors, items, and upgrade systems that were present in DOOM. I call it Embers Of Armageddon. It's given me a lot of experience with digital editing, and with the new language that came out recently for GZDoom, called ZScript. :D
I'm still working on it, and expect to complete a closed alpha of the project
Goodness gravy, my deviantART's anniversary keeps creeping past me... (which means I don't remember to draw a special piece to celebrate the occasion... until it's too late... :XD:)
Yep, I've been here 6 years, now. :D
In that RP I mentioned to you, 1 of the characters had her specials changed to the following:Ammo Satchels: primary throws it straight, secondary makes it arc. Can be detonated manually, regenerates ammo. Can hold up to 5 shots per fire mode.Screaming Bernie: An explosive-bullet revolver with a 600-round primary clip. Secondary throws it as a Tediore Grenade. This mode needs to be reloaded every 120 shots, when dual wielding, clips & reserves for all modes on both guns are separate."Pushka": This handheld 100-millimeter cannon serves as this character's class-specific pump shotgun slot item. She is the tank it was made for. Fires either a mortar (250-round clip) or a repulsion ball (83-round clip), & the balls each start with 250 battery of their own. Can also do 10-round bursts.Matryoshka: A wrist-mounted minigun that can fire either little jet-propelled miniguns that spit bullets, normal exploding bullets, or missiles that make a Revenant scream. All 3 modes use their own ammo & reload every 1,200 rounds.Excalibat: A baseball bat with a creepy eyeball. Can fire either waves of green suns (5 shots on a full primary charge), exploding baseball waves (50 shots on a full secondary charge), or summon the boulder of Sisyphus to crush monsters with (charges after every tertiary shot).Shurricane: Inspired by watching crappy 1980s Ninja movies, this gun can fire either 5-spreads of explosive homing < (300 rounds per clip), a fire mine that lured monsters with a hologram of an imp in a bikini (60 shots per secondary clip), or exploding pickles that are kind of a big dill (15 shots per tertiary clip).Ramjet Mach VII: A sniper rifle that fires bullets of processed dark matter (120 rounds per clip), the secondary is a sniper attack drone.Deathhead: A handheld device designed for when the user absolutely, positively redeem every motherfucker in the room of their sins at once. Primary is a nuke shotgun (50 rounds per clip), secondary fires a giant nuke (10 rounds per clip). When iron sighting, the pellets in the primary become heat-seeking, while the secondary pops open a camera with a nuke's eye view as the giant missile becomes telepathically guided by the wielder, complete with warning siren. An amplifier can apply a spread shot effect to the secondary with no reduction in effectiveness per projectile.Schwarzer Zwerg: A belt-fed twin auto-shotgun that reloads every 200 shots. Secondary charges up a blast (400 backup ammo for charging, 20 in a full charge).In Soviet Russia bird flips them YOU!: Let’s just say she flips people off like a demon-killing Soviet, if you catch my drift.Tiberium Fart: Exactly what it sounds like (these last 2 are her "quick" items)So, what do you think now that it’s fleshed out?
So, I thought of an idea for Embers of Armageddon: give the Chaingun & the Assault rifle separate ammo, thus fixing the discrepancy of the fluff saying they use separate ammo despite the gameplay having them use the same ammo. Ammo pickups would be handled by custom inventory items giving both.
