Project Realm. Intermission Time

With the Colonies behind us we’ve come to the last two islands of the Realm: the Dark Elf Origin and the Island of Darkness. Both play a significant role in the story my friend and I played out those many years ago, particularly the latter, which was the destination of the characters’ first great quest. As seen on the map both islands were already worked out in considerably more detail than the regions that have been the focus of the past weeks.

Despite this – or perhaps because of it – creating their various landscapes, climates and their flora and fauna proved more difficult than expected. The Island of Darkness will probably be a lot easier when it rolls around, but the Dark Elf Origin not so much. I’ve gotten the social and political regions almost worked out, but as of now the details of the ecological ones are still eluding me. Do I make it fairly ecologically homogeneous like the individual islands of the Colonies or the Cat People Archipelago, or perhaps more diverse, with a couple of clearly distinctive regions like on the Island of the Cold-Blooded? It’s a question that will need a bit more thought. I care about this world and I want to give it the proper amount of time and attention, not throw out something half-baked.

So, as the title had already given away, no actual ‘sculpting’ this time around. Sorry about that. I do intend to have things cleared up next week, though, so expect the Dark Elf Origin in more detail then!


Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
