    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    Well it seems like no one's found any problems beyond the handful I already addressed, so I'm going to go ahead and submit the version I have now to the World Anvil page. Thanks for the input on it everyone! :)

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    Well they wouldn't hang out right outside the town where it would be relatively easy for a posse to be put together and take them down. They'd want to have a little distance between themselves and whatever settlement they're harassing so if/when help is called for, by the time it arrives they're...

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    It doesn't bother me to change my story a little to fit what's currently known about the world, though. The small change might even be better in the long run, if I write a follow up to it (or several). It feels kind of weird having that bit sitting in a reply down here, which is part of why...

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    Well that busts that part of it. I guess I'll edit that mystery section in my mind, then. . . . Done. The new one still works fairly well. -I edited the original spoiler to reflect the new playing out of behind the scenes events, and some of it works even better, in fact.

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    Want me to spoil it? I'll spoil it in spoilers. Those are all helpful suggestions which I think I'll employ, thank you!

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    I was trying to keep that in mind, but the samples from Apocalypse are limited right now--we're mostly getting Alaric's way of speaking/thinking presently, and I didn't want to do a carbon copy of that, so I just kept it more casual in this one. If I need to revisit it and change some things...

    Fragment of A Forbidden Truth -- a journal entry from an unfortunate researcher

    This is what I was referring to when I mentioned I was working on something a bit longer than my original World Anvil entry. It started with the few lines a ways down into the story, and then the story wrapped itself around the lines as I was writing them out. Hope y'all like it, and lemme know...

    [New World] Pack suggestions

    [The Ever-Written End] A bewitched scroll that records every death its owner has suffered by date, time, and cause. Useless in the hands of a mortal, somewhat useful in the hands of the mortally-challenged. Disclaimer: That ain't my art, that's just for reference.

    Potential Voice Actors

    There are a lot of great actors out there, and I think DHS would be the opportunity of a lifetime if it comes together as well as we all want it to. I hope there's enough room in the game world for every single VA who has an interest in it. Good news is that even after its full release, the...

    On Clans and Houses and Ages - Vampires

    I'm not sure if this line of thought has already been covered or not, but a couple of simple keyword searches yielded nothing significant, so here I go! This is a big topic to tackle so I'll just start with the easy/logical bit first: Under the header VAMPIRES~ How might the new player...

    Vampire Looks (please read)

    I'll be interested to see whatever the Apoc fellas come up with. If most vampires look kind of grotesque outside of their ''disguise form'' I don't think it'll bother me at all. I do like the idea of the ''evolution system'' from Soul Reaver being introduced, so that we can pick new special...

    Electrical VFX and Spell Behavior -- How lightning really works and how it could work in DHS

    Fair points there. I guess I was jumping the gun a little in my head because other people sounded more adamant about how spells would use Words, so I let my mind assemble imagery based on that, with such little direction from the Apoc fellas. I was thinking that--assuming there is a casting time...

    Electrical VFX and Spell Behavior -- How lightning really works and how it could work in DHS

    You might be seeing it differently in your head than I'm seeing it in mine. From what I know of the magick system right now, spells likely won't be instantaneous, you'll have to put words in the correct order to have the desired effect, and that might take a second or two or five or eight...

    Electrical VFX and Spell Behavior -- How lightning really works and how it could work in DHS

    After seeing how great N'gaztak looks in-game, I'm excited all-around to see exactly how much y'all are going to be able to do with this engine graphics-wise. I've been thinking about how awesome the VFX could be for spells and weather effects and whatnot, and have been going through my head on...

    World Anvil Articles For Curation

    Howdy, my first article is up for your perusal. It's called "Our Strength" and it's a Personal Journal entry. Hope ya like it. Sorry if I missed any errors--I proof read it over once but I've missed small things before in stuff I've written, too.
