Mostly, I want to take a break from them. Might open up in a month or so. When I'm open again, this journal entry will be deleted.

A dream I had last night inspired this seed of a video-game premise.

It'd be a hack-and-slash RPG where you played a hero who drew their power from three gods: Zeus, Odin, and Isis. You could switch between which god you drew power from (like switching between modes), but each god would grant you different weapons, abilities, and magic spells you could cast. For example, Zeus would give you a sword and shield, stronger armor, and spells like casting lightning bolts or turning invincible for a moment; Odin would give you a big battle ax, stronger attack, and the ability to freeze enemies or descend into a berserker-style murderous rage; and Isis would give you a bow and arrow, superior speed and agility, and the power to fully restore your health as well as summon African animals like crocodiles, lions, and gorillas to help you fight.

I don't have much of a story for this game yet, but the protagonist would be one of two siblings, a brother and sister who shared a triracial heritage (Northern and Southern European through their father, African through their mother). With the help of their three divine beneficiaries, they would fight this evil god that escaped their subterranean prison and wanted to wipe out all the other gods and take over the world.

Dunno if I want to develop this further since I already have quite a bit on my hands right now, but I wanted to throw it out there anyway.
If anyone out there is a Harry Potter fan, this recent Pottermore tweet might be relevant (if a bit disturbing):

Hmm...too late to say Happy Hanukkah, too early to say Merry Christmas or Happy Kwanzaa. But nonetheless, hope everyone's having a joyful December so far!
I'd like to remind everyone that you can buy your own printed copy of my best artwork over on Redbubble!

In all seriousness, while tumblr's purge of NSFW stuff is prudish and self-damaging, I doubt we're going to see a total death for the site. More likely, they'll end up like Myspace. It'll still be there, but people might not remember it.

Thank you so much for the faves! And thank you for adding me to your watchlist! I was hoping you would do that eventually. You've been one of my favorite artists here for some time. Some of the genres of a lot of your work, alternate history and primitive fantasy, are genres I enjoy the most, and your work inspires me. Keep up the good work, sir!

Honestly, you ought to reexamine your own behavior if you're getting blocked and kicked out of Discord groups all the time. Just a thought.

You got some cool stuff and amazing imagination. Is your story about the Egyptians inspired off of Robert E. Howard's Conan the Barbarian and the Hyborian age? Also do you have any Stories on here that I can read?

Robert E. Howard is indeed among my favorite writers, but he's not a direct influence on my current alternate-history project (the one with Itaweret). As for my stories, you can check out some shorts here:

Thanks this will be fun to read. Who were your inspirations for your magical ancient Egypt, character wise and writer wise?

The story I'm working on owes its inspiration to certain Greek myths about Egyptians settling on their shores in ancient times (e.g. the "black doves" from Egypt said to have founded the oracle of Dodona). As for my characters, they're based on archetypes that I'm personally fond of, such as strong heroines and war-mongering megalomaniacs. I dunno if I can single out a single author as a source of my inspiration though.
