I'd like to thank my commissioners for being patient with me with my upcoming wedding. I'm going to concentrate fully on all outstanding commissions from here on out! For those of you that don't know, on the 7th March I got married. It was a fun filled, quirky and nerdy wedding! Pictures to follow!

... almost home. 

As you know I've been worlding building for a place to make new stories and playing dnd campaigns. 

When I started i want to bring along some of my beloved characters from my old world. I did wonder at the time if i should leave them behind but I'd grown too fond of them to do that. In bringing them over though I've had to 'change' things. adventures they'd had were gone, backstories to specific to the other world lore, and other stuff. Lix has a different setup and one that has a good setup for story making thou i have had to clear out the clutter of her heritage and setup a new one for her just as interesting thou not as epic. 

the twins fitted in seamless! primarily because they were quite a blank canvas, not much had happened and they're now continuing in the direction I always wanted ... thou with much more roguish sass than i originally planned ...

Teb, oh boy, complete upheaval! some things were integral to her behaviour and outlook on the world but due the complete reversal of lore from the old world to this one its been more difficult. Primarily one being that she was 3/4 dragon in a world where they can be benevolent, with a new world where dragons are on the whole evil this was a problem but one i wasn't shying away from. So I did what i always do, i went back to the blueprints. Keeping in mind what i wanted her personality and temperament to be I started to play around in the world and its newly formed lore to see what would fit in where. I would play out scenes in my head to see if it worked and retweak bits. Bowen also had trouble too, his history isn't as dark as his previous incarnation but I balanced that with dark twists in his current life. Theres still work, but they're starting to transplant in this world quite well! 
The thing that were crucial to keep with Teb was her pride, intellect, curiosity, and drive to do good despite the costs. Some things I'll have to put to bed are her blind obsession of jewellery, some can be preserved but not to extent as her previous incarnation, her naivety to her appearance, she'll still have a sheltered life but fed fear from her father. In all honesty, these were played for giggles and tropes. 

the thing is, though the journey was bumpy at first and wondered if it was worth it, it was. I think more in the vein of this new world, Syia, than the old one now. The new possibilities are exciting

speak of which, I've asked to run a campaign in this world and did a session last week of complete improv ... no one noticed. wont be so lucky this week ...

Syia - Core Concept

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 18, 2013, 5:33 AM


Elixia Dragmires Journal
Warning may contain mentally damaging randomness
_________________________________________________






Okay, deleted the last entry just so we could start anew. I'm going to expand on the core concept of my world building. Taking a similar vein to Rich Burlew of GITP, I'll document my thoughts and decisions.

I've been playing in a joint homebrew world for 6 years (I think? could be longer) and felt a strong urge to set out on my own and build a world. I've been playing a low magic dark age fantasy for a long while and wanted a break from that, so I'm going high fantasy! I've had lots of ideas from my teens that never panned out but I've always kept a record of them in my head. So after an ever growing pantheon I've started out with one deity. Named Syia.

the core concept to Syia is that she is world in its entirety. Its life force and creator. In a way I want her to have an ethereal and physical presence in the world and have adopt the tree of life motif from norse mythology and adopted a few ideals from pagan believes. So we have a mass tree, this is start of the world. O could contain to only the tree but I want the tree to be apart of the worlds mythos and not a landmark for tourists. Of course having ONE deity is boring in a game environment, so to avoid a very linage world Syia has created or more I've created Immortal Guardians, either by design or fluke. So far I have 5, each taking an aspect or element. From these Guardians they themselves have made servants to help them in their tasks etc etc. Already there's spalling Pantheons, maybe not all are 'gods' persay but are powerful and widely varied. I have half of them nailed down in concept but some are still very airy fairy. So far I have Father Wood, fae origin and keeper of the woods. Bol the sleeping mountain, earth aspect, a fire immortal, still needs a name, same for the water. The air i have a concept of several thousand air spirits forming a hive mind.

but we need contrast to the world, thats where the Worldeater comes in ...

Syia Map by Elixia-Dragmire

A map in the making!!

I'm making the world a super continent so this is really freakin huge!! I have some 'landmarks' earmarked. I have a solid idea of my lore of the world, how magic both divine and arcane works, creatist story set up, how races came to be, doing a little politics, history. Only starting forming one Kingdom first. got a base of it foundry and recent history. My partner is chomping at the bit to play in this world!

I'd love to explain more but I know know what you what hear about! magic? races? religion? go ahead and shoot!

*bursts into aladin show tunes*

ahem, yeah.

Remember I said I was making a new world? Well my lovely partner has got in on the act! So far we've made something we both quite like. I started telling him bits and pieces I'd thought up, how magic works, whos in it, bits of lore and I had him hooked! I have to admit i looooooooove loooooooore. I find that get this right and you've got a solid foundation for a living breathing world. Don't re-con it or its fall apart and your world with it! (so many games/books etc do this and its sad seeing something you liked be demolished) But things from myhos I like and half baked ideas from the past have been throw into this melting pot.

I admit I've been cherry picking some of my favorite oc characters and integrating them into this world but with a new life, created some awesome looking cities (in my head) and I've been having a whale of a time!

I blame FFVIIII.My God, that world. It feels ALIVE! God bless JRPG's (MMOJRPG this time around) for making such immersive worlds!

I wish to draw these scenes for you soon, and the revamped and new characters from this world. This world still hasn't got a name yet, working on that on. Might be just 'Syia'

another Miss OC Comic? or not? (halp)

I'm on the fence. I have nice idea for a comic but I'm wondering if its 'too self indulgent' the end panel would have AS MANY other contestants as i could draw before getting back off my summer hols! (this week and next) on one hand i think the comic is quirky and adds 'another dimension' to the character teb, on the other hand i just want an excuse to drew a shit load of other people contesants! theres a few clawing at me to be drawn! and this would be an excellent excuse of a HUGE piece of fanart for the group .... so should i stick the comic on the front of it? Plot wise it works, but I've never been good at drawing attention to my characters positively, or should I say brave enough (at least on my perspective which i could see being highly cautious)

hmmmmmmm

comic or just the fanart piece? gah! could someone slap me into a decision please!! and soon! my flight is in 48 hours! (yay sunny spain)

I've been very lackluster lately with my creativity. All my previous projects had seemed to had hit brick walls, so many in fact they turned into a fortress! Its a hard one to explain but .. ah, heres a good metaphor, my imagination wasn't the free flowing river it once was but more of a stagnant canal with walls, locks and bridges. Well my ever loving partner being the voice of reason said as it is; Put up or shut up. So I'm now embarking on a new adventure, a new world building project!! something I can really sink my teeth into and mold, create and share, Me and my partner have been talking about this for years but never actually went ahead and did it, but I think its time.

Actually psyched again!

First of all thank you, everyone who has bought a commission so far! Means a lot to me and thank you to those who helped spread the word too :) Currently working my way through them all, love working on the interesting characters people give me XD I might be able to get another full one done today, and sketch to and over the weekend i'll be sketching up some more!!

on a random side note, my verdict on this sketch book is a 'meh' too smudgy. its ok but better for charcoal drawings. back to cheap yet smudge resistant WHSmith books :) (never go away)

Here Comes 'The Golden Kingdoms' Empire

*Plays the empire strike back tune*

Well we FINALLY gave it a name (4 cooks) Bowen and Teb's union would make 'The Golden Kingdoms'. Our home brewed world of Denora has changed a lot.

My mind races with ideas, small stories or scene of thing that have happened or could be. Given Teb's opposition to power I can see her succession of Gilshire after defeating Venoraxwould'vetaken some convincing. Marrying Bowen and become a queen consort, thats fine however a ruling power? hmm. Shewould'vetried to offer her Viceroy Rictor Car'vien and natural successor the position first but given the state of Gilshire after the quakes and floods a political marriage to a wealthyneighbouringnation would of save it from all out civil war andanarchy. And given she's a bleeding heartthat would be more than enough to convince her.

Also I had a excellent idea to get back into my artwork, remember the first few pictures i did of everyone at the beginning?

I normally dont vent sort of stuff on the web but a month ago I lent my monitor to my brother until I could buy a new desktop to replace my PC. He left this at a friends house with his laptop where when has has LAN parties. Another friends lodging there asked if he could buy the PC desktop, my brother agreed but left the monitor at the house with the lodger. Now I asked for my monitor back. The lodger is REFUSING TO HAND THE 27" MONITOR BACK. It's not his. Its mine. I am very close to going around and demanding the monitor back. That or call the police. Unfortunately I don't have proof of purchase since it was over 7 years ago we bought it. I'm very angry and very frustrated.

Those of you who follow my tweets will know that I had an awesome session of DnD on Saturday! Filled with classic traps, puzzle and baddies. Including the 'jam butty room' not as delicious as it sounds ;) So far the drive into deep dark dwarven ruins for hidden knowledge has been was fun and exciting. Managed to nuke a whole room of evil dwarves by the second round with 'Stormbolts', didnt think it'd be as dangerous as it was. But alas, we have maybe only 3 sessions left then its a showdown with the big bad ... so it'll be so long Teb and hellooooooo Gerda, my farmer daughter turned fighter!!

Its been fun playing Teb, I've had my ups and my fair share of downs. Sorcerers are a class to fear, my god the amount of spells you get!!! I could hardly remember them all! She's been a bittersweet character to play, certainly different from Lix, the complete opposite in fact. There are a lot of things I wish I'd done different with this character but sometimes they run away from you and on their own path :)

Princess Lix?!

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 25, 2013, 11:19 AM

Warning may contain mentally damaging randomness
_________________________________________________






something just dawned on me .


I always made lix's father a high elf but a few session ago i found out that not only is Lix's father a high elf, He's the high elf king! technically making her a princess!! meaning 2 of my dnd character have been princesse's (the DM is the blame for both instances mind you!) but the first one, Lix, acted the most 'royal' like with snotty demands, greedy cravings for gold and jewles and pompous airs and graces.

The second being Teb who was one from creation but NEVER acted on it or acknowledged it . though she's was via draconic heritage which holds little water in wider society, only among other dragons who don't socialize often. It was only after being made heir by the queen of Gildshire did it become a 'cornerstone' to the campaigns and public perception.


But still, Lix a princess? dam, glad she never found out. My god her ego would of been unbearable. explains her attitude though .
