Outtakes from “Murchad is let down by the rules”

Wednesday 29 February 2012

'Unused picture from Murchad is let down by the rules'

“Murchad is let down by the rules” was originally intended to be much longer. In fact it was supposed to be two chapters, the second being the scene in Dublin Castle’s hall. (It even had a preview banner ready.)

Sixth Anniversary: Prologue Chapters

Tuesday 29 November 2011

Anniversary time already. The Kingdom of Lothere: So romantic since 2005!

So romantic!

Year Six has been an interesting one for me. I was laid off in March, and although I quickly found another cool job, that speed bump certainly affected my output over here in the story. It looks like I only wrote 44 new chapters in the last year: less than one per week. :redface:

The Lotherian Lady

Sunday 23 October 2011

AF_Lady_sm_006.jpg

Sherahbim’s “The Lady” gown is one of the best bliauts out there, so I wanted it in lots of medieval colors. There are already other recolors of the original gown, so I made a few edits to the outfit to add variety. I also put it on a different mesh.

The Troll Mother (and Son)

Saturday 22 October 2011

“The Troll Mother”

In the far-​off, frost-​stricken Northlands
Where pine forests blanket the fells,
Beneath her ancestral toll bridge
A little old troll mother dwells.

Young Aed Storyline

Sunday 16 October 2011

To prepare for the upcoming chapter, I pulled together a new storyline for Young Aed. It inevitably has some political stuff in it, but I tried to limit it as much as possible so as not to have too much overlap with the “Storm on the Irish Sea” storyline. I focus on chapters that reveal Aed’s character: sometimes cunning and sometimes childish, sometimes ruthless and sometimes compassionate.

Estrid’s Party Dress Recolors

Saturday 30 July 2011

Maiden gown recolors.

Somebody expressed an interest in one of the recolors I made a few years ago of Sherabhim’s “Maiden” gown: the “party dress” immortalized in “Estrid is made molten.”

Server Upgrade

Saturday 2 July 2011

In the very beginning, I had Lothere on a blogging platform like Blogger or Wordpress.

That only lasted about a month before I decided I wanted more control of the layout. So I installed Wordpress on a shared hosting service, one of those $7-​per-​month things. That lasted a year or two, but I eventually got sick of the (shared) database server going down for no fault of my own and taking down my site for hours at a time.
