A Return to Writing: Some Character Biographies

Long-time readers of this blog may remember that I used to have a page devoted to my characters. Each of them would be listed with details of their class and accomplishments, and alongside that would be a short in-universe biography.

I chose to scrap that page with the blog’s revamp, although truth be told I had long been dissatisfied with it even before that point. The biographies were fun to write, but at the same time it also felt that I simply had to come up with stories for each of my characters the moment they were listed, rather than allowing myself time to develop their own backgrounds naturally. As such, I felt I needed to scrap that altogether until such a time as I was ready to give it another shot.

I mentioned in my last post that I’m not much of a skilled artist, but I do enjoy giving drawing a shot every now and again. The same is true of writing. Over the past few years, I have been jotting down snippets of stories whenever a good idea popped into my head, and last year I was able to complete the first draft of a five-chapter long short story. It’s not going to see the light of day anytime soon, but I was ecstatic to finally complete a piece of writing at last.


My Approach to Combat Styles for my pre-7.0 Characters

This is something that I've wanted to post for a good few months or so – this has been kicking around as part of a draft post focusing on the "goods, the bads, and the eeehhhhhs" of 7.0 for quite some time now – and I felt it was about time to finally kick it into life somewhat. 

This was definitely not inspired by a recent post on Shin's blog.


... okay, it was.
