All righty then. I know I don't use this site much, but I just saw my old journal and holy crap was it outdated.
Now... there was a list of things for me to do on my last 'entry' and I can quite happily say I've done most of them (most, not all). College is alright, coding isn't so bad (that's a complete lie, Javascript is hell), Rogue Trader is going well, and I've started painting my Warhammer stuff.

Now then. The big reason I'm writing this is quite simple really: I'm writing it on a whim. I got bored and decided to update a thing or two. That being said, it's worth mentioning that everything is not A-ok in jolly old Alba. The title was probably a dead giveaway, am I right? If you wish to spare yourself of angsty whining then please feel free to skip this coming section. I'll give it a nice border for you.

Depression sucks folks. I'm still hesitant to even think of it as an actual illness - which is weird, isn't it? One of the little things that bothers me as well, the act of taking anti-depressants, in itself, is depressing. Irony at its finest. Supposedly depression is quite likely to be a major factor in my rather exuberant lethargy.(I have become one with the thesarus. Bow down to me.) Now I don't know much about that, but I do know that for the last three weeks there have been an awful lot of things I want to get done but just... can't. There's no reason for it. It just kinda goes like this:
  • "Oh boy, I really would like to paint up my Death Guard today!"
  • TWELVE HOURS LATER
  • "..."
  • "I have done absolutely nothing today."
  • "I hate my life"

Anxiety's a whole other kettle of fish though - sure it can feed into depression, and sure I was never the most sociable person in the world. But ti's still a thing. Nothing really to be said here though. Anxiety is anxiety. Talking to people is difficult. Whoop-de-doo.
The insomnia's new though. Nothing quite says "Fuck you, guy!" like going to bed at 10pm only to lie there, completely awake, until 8am. Truly a masterful experience.

Now then, onto brighter things. This is DeviantArt, so I'll try keep it related to creativity and whatnot.
Rogue Trader
It's going great. About 80% of the characters my players encounter are made up on the spot and I'm quite proud to say that a vast majority of them have elicted a good response from my players and/or shocked them quite deeply when their true nature was revealed (I'm a bastard that way, I know.) One character has become a player favourite, and this was not one of my making. A soldier that accompanied my players on their first venture as part of an armed escort has survived longer than any PCs to date. This lone man felt no fear when faced with daemonic entities, unspeakable horrors and powerful psykers capable of tearing apart warships. This lone figure successfully struck down mighty aliens and renegades alike with nought but a lasgun. These valorous deeds have earned him the mantle of 'Biggus Dickus' and (of course) 'Honey Badger'.
Currently, the players remain ignorant to the subtle little sub plots I've surrounded them in I dont give away information for free, if they fail to notice it or forget, I wont remind them.They remain unaware of the Eldritch maniac that's hunting them down, the oncoming Great Devourer, the rather maniacal, hat loving Ork Warboss - Kaptin Krump, the Inquisitorial agent in their midst, the Vindicare Assassin aboard their ship, the coming of the Old Ones, the warp-torn daemon world, the devastated Inquisiton fleet desperate for help, and the little Grot fleet wot finkz theyz tha bestest greenskinz. There's a lot of stuff going on in the Koronus Expanse. Managing it all aint easy. But I'm happy to do it. Seriously loving that game.

Borm Kazran, the little medic with a secret
Trust me on this one, I'm still writing this up. When I initially made the little bugger I didn't think I'd get too in depth with him. But it happened. Oh dear how it happened... As it stands, Borm has five secrets hidden away under his beard. The party has been made aware of secret #1. But let it be known that I did not rank these by severity. Personally, I consider #3 to be the big one. Actually, no. #4 takes the cake. But #3 is a close second. Mitch knows #1-3 and he'll be made aware of #4+5 when the writing is finished. Or maybe earlier, if he asks.

Aardvell [Edit: Corrected title]
This has been on my mind lately. I have two characters that I could roll into it, but I feel like I need to do something more y'know? Currently I have:
  1. An albino Voldak berserker that cannot stand the colour white and will take rather extreme measures to muddy his coat or any other with fabric
  2. A [race undecided] Necromancer that takes a little too much enjoyment from their line of work
  3. A [race undecided] archer with no concept of the word 'honour'
  4. A [race undecided] showoff of a brawler with random 'sparks' of magic (it'd be a randomised roll thing)


Fallout: Equestria
It's no secret that I absolutely love the Fo:Eq universe (in fact my love for it is second only to Warhammer 40k) and I honestly hope to participate in it a little more. Whether this is through; poorly written little mini-shorts that I've posted up before, pledging myself to a somewhat longer (but no less poorly written (and probably cringeworthy)) writing project, simply reading more of the big fics available, or even going as far as to join (or even run) a Fo:Eq RP. The community for it is small but friendly enough that I'd be willing to knock on the door a little. Hell, that's how I met Mitch and Harley. I've got a few characters prepared for something like this if it ever comes up, but I wont discuss them on this post - it's getting long enough as it is.

And on that bombshell, I'm gonna end it there. Expect things to be posted within the next week.

A creepy-looking homeless dude came up to me and told me you were having a tough time. Hope things start looking up for you soon; tough times ain't fun. <:1

Ha. Little small, but liked your sketches of Typhoon.
You should art more, you're clearly better at it than I am!
