You know it and I know it

Sorry about not having a post on Monday. I got caught up in some other things and never did get around to posting. Also gonna go ahead and take Friday off, while I’m at it. Monday is a bit iffy, but I’m gonna try.

We’ll see how this goes. Continue reading

Kiss me, I’m not Irish

I love how Saint Patrick’s day in the US is just a huge excuse to go drinking and celebrate everyone’s pseudo Irish background. In honor of that, have a drunken General!

I think I finally found a guy for Atlanta to settle in with. Riga is someone that she would really have more of a business relationship with rather than a marriage. It’s a way to get what she wants (mostly) with out having to deal with someone that’s completely unbearable. And Riga is semi-good looking in the right light.

Just make sure you’re squinting or else you won’t see it. (At least that’s what Atlanta says.)

Bit o back story on this one: Atlanta and Riga would have worked out a deal in which Atlanta marries Riga to gain her freedom, because she knows too much to go home. The Empire uses the excuse that she is valuable to the colony she’s assigned to, but Atlanta knows its because she’s privy to one too many secrets. So she drags Riga home to meet the extended family, including the Irish uncles.

Thinly veiled threats

**Edit: AGAIN with the failing to pick the proper time to have the blog post! My bad y’all. I’ve not been paying very close attention this week.**

Back to Atlanta again this week. I’m still not sure what direction her story is going, but I do know this: she has a long journey ahead of her. I can’t give her a happy ending, I just can’t. It would ruin the story. Continue reading

Thank god for a fall back

Remember my RPG Cowboy that I posted about a while back? No? Here’s a refresher for you.

If you’ve played RPG games before, you know that DM’s can be… interesting to work with. In one of our most recent games this summer, our DM sent out a survey for our characters to fill out and send back to her. This also helped to flesh him out a little bit more as a character and give him some driving motivation rather than just being a “steampunk cowboy that’s missing his right eye” (no lie, that’s what I put on the character description). The following is Riga’s response.

(Also, I’ve been nominated for a reader appreciation award from Bob Othman. Thank you kindly Bob! I’ll be filling that out on Wednesday!) Continue reading

Savage Characters of a different sort

Today, like most days, you get an odd post. The reason I say odd, is because while its still technically a writing sprint, its also a character bio.

See, occasionally on the weekends I like to gather with my friends and pretend to be someone/something that I’m not. We run around in fictions worlds, beat up fictitious animals or people. Its quite fun and a stress reliever.

For the Savage Worlds system, I’m playing a steam punk cowboy. Our last game, our DM was pitting our characters against our “greatest fears”, or some such situation. Because I hadn’t given her a proper character bio, she pitted me against a giant metal scorpion. So I decided to be nice to her (and myself) and type up a proper bio so she could torture me like the other characters.

Hope you like him as much as I do.

(Also, please ignore my horrible history mistakes if I’ve made any. I aimed for like the mid-1840/1850/1860s-1880s. Or something. I ignored the Civil War entirely because Riga wouldn’t care to shoot at other men like he would an animal.)
