This is so important.
believe it or not… i even love you, wolverine.
boy, you are drunk. love you too, elf.
He needs a helmet.
Yeah, it would suck to take that thing down and then taken down by a lucky shot to the eye from a lowly cultist or something.
(or a micrometeoroid, since he appears to be fighting in space)
Or the space itself. But I read somewhere that there’s a mini-atmosphere between the hull and void shield.
Heroes don’t wear helmets.
My take on Valua for my Skies of Arcadia redesign project.
As Valua is the most belligerent country, I thought it’d be fitting to have their capital and the majority of the lower city on a giant warship.
I really liked the idea of having a giant cannon over the lower city as a symbol of the upper class suppressing the poor and making them work on the ship. I thought it’d be cool to just look up at the sky and see this huge barrel towering over you.
The last image shows the throne of the Empress. I imagine they revere the yellow moonstones since it provides them an edge over other countries with light and power, so I combined that idea with their dragon motif/insignia from the original game. :)

FAKE GEEK GUYS: A MESSAGE TO MEN ABOUT SEXUAL HARASSMENT
By Andy Khouri
“I think this woman is wrong about something on the Internet. Clearly my best course of action is to threaten her with rape.”
That’s crazy talk, right? So why does it happen all the time?
Honest question, dudes.
That women are harassed online is not news. That women in comics and the broader fandom cultures are harassed online is not news. That these women are routinely transmitted anonymous messages describing graphic sexual violence perpetrated upon them for transgressions as grave as not liking a thing… that is actually news to me, and it’s probably news to a lot of you guys reading this.
So what do we do about it?
This article explains the solution perfectly and it’s sad how painfully obvious it is.
It’s all on the men in the comic industry, in any entertainment industry, to fix this sexist bullshit. It’s not the job of women to stop men from acting like sexist assholes, it’s the men’s job to point out other men who spout hate, abuse and rape threats and call them out on their bullshit.
This article pretty much does the job and makes the points the previous ones (by Janelle Asselin) tried to before they got lost in all of the author’s body-shaming and inherent transphobia. I’m glad someone got it right and I’m glad someone brought up the point that it’s not just on women to fix sexism. And sometimes, women need to fix sexism within themselves too, I might add. :/
"Badassfully, are you sleeping with my sister?"
"Slumber would be difficult due to the energetic nature of our copulation."
So I had an awesome weekend at the Student Roleplaying and Wargaming Nationals. Dark Heresy was a blast, as always; my first game was as a somewhat quiet Priest of the Imperium (who for some reason owned an Eviscerator pattern chainsword) who it turned out was not quite so quiet when it came to orating to the crowd (I do so love sergeant-voice). The Sunday I was playing an Interrogator in a game GMed by Alex Helm, an awesome lady who is heavily involved with/runs the Death Unto Darkness 40k LARP here in the UK and is also writing short stories for the Black Library. Character intrigue, inter-party conflict and satisfying (and, oddly enough, happy) resolutions were enjoyed by all. And I came 3rd in my category (40k Roleplay) out of about 20 people so (for the second year running) so I am ok with this.
It has, however, left me yearning to run a game of Dark Heresy.
