Skunk Starlight
Skunk

Skunk is a unique and gifted soul, a rare individual known as a "star-blessed". All who possess silver eyes are star-blessed, but not all who are star-blessed have silver eyes. Among those who are star-blessed include Dragon, Rat, Skunk, Moose, Vulture, Casino Grayleaf, Mint Grayleaf, Solar, Polar, Lunar, and Locust. For one reason or another, the stars themselves saw fit to entrust these chosen individuals with their blessing, and so all of them possess significant special talents.

Though most people know Skunk as a goddess of curses and as something of a jack-of-all-trades, she is also a goddess of potential, and possesses incredible latent power above that of even other star-blessed. However, she is only able to tap into this power during the night of the full moon. During the full moon, she is able to achieve a form known as "Skunk Starlight", and glows radiantly with the incredible power of starlight, gaining incredible magic power, speed, and stamina, and becoming nigh unstoppable, even by the likes of Ruby Dragon and Lunar.

But she often sits under the stars, gazing up at the heavens and wondering "Why? For what reason do I have this power, and why only under the full moon? Is it just random chance, or is it meant to serve some greater purpose?"

Another Place, Another Time (Part 1)

Rat
Monkey

"They're closing in on this location from every path. We've been found out. Most of us are already dead. We're surrounded. I'm sorry, boss."

"Not boss... Rat. You know that. I may be leader, but we are all equals. This is no truer than in death. But do not despair. We've done our best. One day, history will remember them as the villains that they are."

"Yes, si... Rat. Thank you for every-"

"UNDESIRABLES HAVE BEEN SPOTTED AT COORDINATES 83, 24, 47. PERMISSION TO OPEN FIRE. OVER."

"PERMISSION GRANTED. LEAVE NONE OF THEM ALIVE. OVER AND OUT."


In a terrible dystopia, those who were deemed "a person of below acceptable quality" were to be removed from society to await execution. For years, a resistance led by a man known only as "Rat" succeeded at evading capture and rescued countless individuals from genocide, many of whom were more than eager to join their fold. However, the situation grew more and more dire, until eventually Rat and all of his fellow "rats" were discovered and eradicated.

Perhaps this was the end of their story, or perhaps it was not. After all, it is said that sometimes the stars themselves take pity and reward those that they find deserving. Though such stories may well be little more than fairy tales...

Ruffians
A trio of good-for-nothing lowlifes.

Their leader was Rocko, the strongest and most competent of the group. Dominick was the most violent and sadistic of the group, and cared far more about getting to hurt people than about money or power. Chet was the most clever and underhanded of the group, and took great joy out of successful scams and dirty tricks.

Dragon
Snake
Ruffians

There once lived a young man by the name of Roy G. Biv. Smart, caring, talented, and courageous to a fault, he was a truly unique and gifted individual. Sadly, he met a most unfortunate and untimely end. Whilst in the park with his childhood friend, Nina VonAdder, they were surrounded by a trio of ruffians. Their leader Rocko, and his goons, Dominick, the most sadistic of the group, and Chet, the most underhanded, all held a grudge against Roy.

Roy and Nina fought with the ruffians. While Roy was distracted, Chet struck Roy over the back of the head with a tire iron, killing him instantly. Overcome with grief, Nina lost the will to fight, her attention focused solely on the now lifeless body of her best friend. But they were not separated for long, as Rocko shot Nina in the back of the head, and the three of them quickly made themselves scarce.

Perhaps this was the end of their story, or perhaps it was not. After all, it is said that sometimes the stars themselves take pity and reward those that they find deserving. Though such stories may well be little more than fairy tales...

The Cast of Shining Silver Starlight
Shining Silver Starlight is based on a series of comics I used to make when I was younger. I'm looking to improve my drawing skill so I can have another go at it. Additionally, I'm currently exploring the world of RPG Maker MV and making a game series to complement it.

Along with various demos, I finished work on Shining Silver Starlight: A Deal with the Devil, which is a short non-interactive story that takes place relatively early in the series' timeline, and am currently working on Shining Silver Starlight: Lydia Story, a story-focused adventure that tells the tale of a gifted knight named Lydia VanVoder. I hope you enjoy playing them.

Between unique characters and their variants, I have made over sixty designs. Be sure to check them all out!

Mint Grayleaf
Casino Grayleaf

Characters

The younger sister of Casino Grayleaf. As children, they often fought, but have since learned to get along for the most part.

When her sister came of age and was given a wish star by the village elder, she became an immortal hero, but failed to become the hero of prophecy and was run out of their village for this transgression. Mint had always envied her sister, as Casino was the village favorite and the child of prophecy, but now she understood the pain and burden that her sister endured. Now her sister was gone, and worse still, Casino would live on through the ages while Mint herself would grow old and die. She wanted to make up for the bad blood between them, and she wanted to join her sister throughout time. Desperate to change fate, she met with Dragon and tearfully pleaded with him to consider her request. Fortunately, Dragon obliged her request and gave her a wish star, which she used to wish for immortality and thus became divine.

Mint is friends with Skunk, a former enemy of Casino whom she still holds a strong grudge against, and so this friendship angers Casino to no end. A talented clothier and enchanter, she runs a successful shop where she creates, buys, sells, and enchants clothing, materials, and accessories.

One day, whilst adventuring through dungeons, Skunk came across an incredibly rare and powerful cape. Having had many failed attempts at mending the grudge between her and Casino in the past, Skunk came to Mint and presented it to her, requesting that she give it to Casino and not tell her who it was from, as she knew it would make Casino quite happy, but only if she didn't know that it was a gift from her hated foe. To this day, Casino continues to wear it, and considers it to be her most prized possession, still believing it was sold to her sister's shop by a random customer who thought it to be little more than an ordinary piece of cloth.

Skunk
I recently acquired a Huion 680S drawing tablet. I'm not very good at drawing, and in a lot of ways, digital art is even harder, but the benefit of having access to so many tools, colors, layers, and countless other conveniences makes it easier in a number of ways as well. So here is a drawing of my face that I made with the tablet and MediBang Paint. I know it's not great, but it's fun just to draw at all! :D

Dragon (Rockstar)
Dragon

Characters

Dragon is a talented performer with a singing voice and guitar skills that never fail to bring in the crowds. Most of the time, he prefers to maintain a cool and relaxed demeanor, but when he's on stage, he loves to let loose and show the world the intense fire that burns inside of him.

Dragon (Robe)
Dragon

Characters

When he isn't training, Dragon often prefers to wear luxurious robes.
Loading...
Raven
Characters

A profoundly disturbed and very dangerous individual, Raven is a permanent resident of the Divine Sanctuary. Her hobbies include laughing, smiling, staring, biting, dismembering, and most especially, eating. Though she is undoubtedly quite mad, Raven is far from mindless, and is much more clever than she often lets on. She has a ravenous appetite, and very much enjoys eating other people.

Tree

Brilliant Betrayer
Platypus
Dragon

New World Order

The treacherous Platypus leads a trusting Dragon into the devious trap he has set.


Dragon: What exactly is it that you want to show me?

Platypus: I've been working on a brilliant new machine. It's going to change everything.
Loading...
Squirrel
Characters

A skilled hunter and archer with impeccable aim, her skills with a bow are not to be taken lightly. Squirrel herself, however, tends to take just about everything rather lightly. She enjoys a good adventure or mercenary work from time to time, but is most at home in the forest. Kind, but a bit loopy.

You will be a lot happier not reading this.

I spend so much time trying to tell myself that suicide isn't the answer. You'd think by now that I'd at least partially believe it, but there isn't a single part of me that does, not even a little. I only live because I am gutless, and the only thing greater than my misery is my cowardice. I don't know how I'm supposed to make anything, finish anything, do anything, or learn anything, when 95% of the time I am fighting a losing battle against my inner demons. I want so much for the end to come, you know, it's all I really want, and it's all I've wanted for a quarter of a century, which is longer than some of you have even been alive. It was supposed to get better at some point, but it didn't; it only got worse. Much, much worse. And the pain and stress of it all has been tearing away at my mind so much for so long, that I question whether or not I can consider myself sane.

I kept trying to pull myself out of that abyss, again, and again, and again, and again. Through self-hatred, I pushed and continue to push myself past my limits and to points of great pain. I feared the thoughts in my head, the thoughts that made me different from other people, the memories and flashbacks of things I can never forget, and I have likely caused myself brain damage from the self-harm I have inflicted over the decades, but even that is not enough to shut up the hell that exists within my mind. I am in hell, I was born into it, I have always lived in it, and I fear that I always will live in it until I die in it, and despite a lifetime of my best efforts, I see only one path that isn't pointless agony, and it's the one wherein I don't exist anymore.

I wanted to be something better than this. I wanted to be happy, and bring joy and love to this ugly, terrifying, brutal world of ours. I wanted the agony to become a distant memory, I wanted to move past everything that I went through and not let it hold me back, I wanted to find a way to kill my greatest demon, my body image issues, so that I could feel like a human being instead of a monster, but... I guess I just didn't have what it took. Maybe I wasn't smart enough. Maybe I wasn't determined enough. Maybe it was always in the cards. I come from trash, and I wanted to be better, but in the end, despite desperately trying to claw my way to something better, even to the point of extreme physical and mental harm, I guess I too am trash. Perhaps it was something immutable, or perhaps that is just wishful thinking.

My partner tells me it wasn't my fault. That there was nothing that I could have done better. That I am amazing for going through what I've gone through, and that if I can get past my pain, he believes I could do anything I put my mind to and achieve brilliant and incredible things. But the thing is, things don't ever get better for me. They just don't. Ever. I only suffer. Maybe I'm bad luck. Maybe I'm cursed. Whether I fight back with everything I've got, or I fall over and accept it, things don't ever get better and I only suffer.

My partner tells me to be easier on myself, don't push myself so stupidly hard, to try and care about myself. But I absolutely despise myself inside and out with every fiber of my being. I am ugly inside and out, and if self-hatred was a fire, this entire world would be turned to cinder by now. I just don't know what to do. I can't live, this hell I am in is not living, but I can't die either. Isn't it all supposed to become some distant memory I can laugh about later? I'm 31 now, when is that supposed to happen? When is my life supposed to start? When am I allowed to say "It's clearly not going to get better, now can you please just be humane and euthanize me?"

Sorry for the rant.

Shining Silver Starlight: A Deal with the Devil by SkunkStarlight

It's been one week since I uploaded the full version of "Shining Silver Starlight: A Deal with the Devil". In that time, it has been played online eleven times and downloaded once, and the deviation for it has been viewed thirty-four times, favorited four times, and commented on once. That's quite a bit more attention than I was expecting. I hope you enjoyed playing it, and I look forward to bringing you more cool stuff like this in the future.

Take care!
