My Bio
I play D&D 3.5E, I write sci-fi and fantasy, and I'm learning to wire houses and build motor control circuits.

Right now I'm working on two main projects. The first is a plugin for an old computer game called EV Nova. The mod advances the timeline over a thousand years to my own version of that universe. The title of the mod is EV Nova: United Galactic Federation, named for one of the dominant star nations in this universe. The time is approximately 4.7 millennia from now.

Most of the images posted here are from the mod, models I've made using Google SketchUp 8.

The second project (more or less on hold at the moment) is Justice By Any Means, a sci-fi novel set in the same universe.

I've rediscovered an old love in video games, the real-time strategy genre.  First one I ever played was StarCraft.  Oh so fun.  Right now I'm working my way through the campaign in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.  I find the Space Marines are pretty good at turtling up to the enemy, just like the Terrans in StarCraft.  I've also tried my hand at Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars, but it's really different from anything I've ever played and I'm having some trouble. Still working slowly on the Balcrusian planets and systems.  I find it fun coming up with historical details of future cultures (hence "pre-nostalgia", a term I borrowed from Tom

Okay, not all of them.  But way too many. The Global Trade System was a great concept -- take advantage of the Nintendo DS's Wi-Fi receiver to trade Pokémon between players all over the world, theoretically enabling you to Catch 'Em All without necessarily needing to personally know a fellow player or own multiple versions and systems. Unfortunately Game Freak and Nintendo grabbed the Idiot Ball with both hands and curled up around it in the fetal position, releasing a bare-bones system without enough hard-coded safeguards to prevent abuse or impossible trades.  The end result: lazy players quickly wrecked the GTS by filling it with ri

You guys are no help at all. :movingon: After watching several episodes of Stargate: SG-1 to take my mind off things, I went back to work and came up with this planet description for Balcruz (and the Balcrusian spaceport bar): Landing DËSC:  Balcruz, homeworld of the Balcrusians, is a heavily guarded world in the center of the People's Republic.  From here the Republic High Council commands the fleets that seek to place the entire Milky Way under their blood-red banner.  Some areas are uninhabitable due to carpet-bombing during the civil war in 969 GSD, while others are cordoned off for secrecy.  People's movements are tracked and rest

Happy birthday :)
If you'd like to get published, send me a note.
Will your many warriors join Dark Star, as we conquer my dimension, and many you have never seen?
And will you take command of Starsaber, one of my most powerful weapons?
Hey man, was looking at your progress log on the ASW forums and couldn't help but notice you paying your respects to the long departed ev-nova.net.

I used to be massively active there and went by the name 'Ravenheart'. Was my first ever forum and have many fond memories of the place. Was sad to see it go, I have to say. What was your username there? I remember Guest, David Arthur, Iced_Plasma but the rest escape me now.. sigh

Hope the plug-in is coming along well.
I was StarSword. I'd be StarSword here, too, except it's apparently taken.

Plug's ... coming along. I won't say "well". Just don't have as much time to work on it as I'd like.
Very interesting, if not educational 3D works.
You are now on my watch list.
