And here are 2 pictures I meant to share awhile ago
Shaglehod in Summer/Nova Scotia, Canada
"LONDON STOLEN BY BATS!"
The old main page of http://fallenlondon.com, I think it provided a good beginning tone for those who have not played "Echo Bazaar". So I am sharing it to everyone [I planned on showing it to Armadei, but they changed their main page so I had to upload it]
A drawing I made of my character: L.S. Cassius. Blocked on colour over a ArtRage pencil sketch.
Tonight I got to the end of The Shuttered Palace "Nemesis" arc Ambition in "Echo Bazaar"...well not quite the end. I have another thing to do when I get higher Dangerous and I have a feeling I will be back.
I guess I'll try to recap my 2 last weeks or so lol
On July 2nd as I posted, we got a new kitten. It took over a week to name him, but June decided on Nick [the name of Diane's late-husband], which was decided to be short for 'Nicolas' and further shortened to 'Nicki' [because of my love for Nicolas de Lenfant].
The kitten is 3lbs of fur, claws, and trouble.
As you can see from the picture.
He is very active and gets into a lot of things. Him and Minnow took a box of tampons, ripped it open, and flung them all over my floor. Several times. He also took my shoe, dragged it across the floor and tried to pull it into the litterbox. And when picked-up to remove him from what he is getting into he will blat. He doesn't mind being picked-up and likes to be held, but he will cry if he was being bad and he is picked-up.
The Sunday before last he was after wires/cords and I got down to get after him and when I went to get up again *BANG* I hit my head hard on a doorknob. I saw little red & white spots and couldn't steady and felt like vomiting. Wendy called my mom and got her to drive me to outpatients. They kept me there all afternoon monitoring me. I was having a lot of trouble staying awake. I tried listening to "Faith Stealer" Big Finish audioplay, eating a muffin with apple juice and talking to my mom, but I just couldn't. It was pants. They decided to send me home and for me to come back if it got worst, and that I had a mild concussion.
Tuesday I was having more trouble walking and neck pain, so my mom took me back. They made an appointment for a CT scan [the nearest hospital with one was over an hour away] and wondered why I hadn't been sent for one that Sunday as I couldn't stay awake. We went to Kentville last Thursday and had the scan [the nurse/operator had to help me because I couldn't walk well]. I haven't heard back from the results yet, but have been improving. Still get confused & have trouble concentrating and get dizzy if I over do it. I can't be on the computer for very long or watch much television, and reading is meh. I also was having trouble writing. I think I'll probably be alright by the end of this week though :] When we were in Kentville my mom and I ate at Paddy's Pub & Rosie's Restaurant. I now have an points card from them~ I like the one in Wolfville more as they have more on the menu and the décor is nicer. I had a piece delicious Irish cream cheese too~ Not that cheesecake can be anything but delcious [97% of the time] ;P
I was in my garden a lot befoe bonking my head and it has since gotten full of weeds :( But besides from that it looks marvelous~ I need to take pictures of my lilium in the next day before they wilt and such. They are gorgeous!~
Here is one from last year. This year I've been blessed by having 4 or 5 flowers on the plant~
I have also been playing "Echo Bazaar" almost daily. I am getting higher in my stats so I am having a lot more to do and see, and I have gotten a firmer grasp on my character. I really need to make a post on them. The next section of my Ambition ["Nemesis"] will be released this Friday so I am so excited. I have been thinking of making a post as a summery of the first part--"Of murder, dried rose petals, and red honey." Maybe I can make myself do so... :/
I am also following 4 of the dream stories: "Death By Water", "Is Someone There?", "A Game of Chess", and as of Friday "What The Thunder Said".
I was going to list what has been going on in each one, but I am too tired now :(
The city of London. Grand, old, city of London. Sure the weather may not be the best all the time, but that just adds to its charm. Or at least it did until the whole city was whisked-up and fell underground. Cushioned by a ‘cloud’ of bats in fact. I have always lived in the country, so I didn’t see it for myself, but the papers at the time were very adamant that there was a whole lot of bats. Enough of the buggers to blot out the sky they said. The ground also seemed to swallow it all, as at the site on the surface it is mostly barren, but lacking of the gapping chasm that would be expected.
There is a pit down into it, and those who wish to venture underground can do so there. Well, I shouldn’t use the word ‘wish’, as there are some that no longer have a place on the surface, usually those who have done something so horrible that they are sent to Newgate Prison, which yes, is still used for England, but not for the more common criminal anymore. There are other prisons for that. No, Newgate is used for the worst sort now. There are stories about how London has embraced its new location, and though it only really has one type of weather, the people seem to be enjoying themselves. Crime is more commonplace than ever, not just pickpocketing, but horrible crimes such as arson and murder.
It seems that the once respectable London has become a laissez-faire for all seedy things. They even call it ‘The Bazaar’. And it seems that it is well known that Hell has even set up a embassy to get in on the market. London truly has Fallen.
Yesterday I beat up to Fortitudo in "Bayonetta" :D [BEAUTIFUL!] I love how polished that game is~ Fortitudo was a diiiiick to beat though D:
Today was an 'ex'-'friend''s birthday so I was happy that I had things to keep my mind off it. [As bad as I feel, I didn't even bother sending an e-mail this year or a card. I have tried sending messages and what-not, but I just have no importance. It often seems to be the case with people...]
I have started playing Echo Bazaar because of telophase . It is a very lovely premise and I am enjoying it immensely! :D I will have to make a separate post on it and my L.S. Cassius character ["a charming and keen-eyed individual of mysterious and indistinct gender"] sometime in the near future [if I remember D:]
My mom took me to Pearls in Paradise for food because she got paid today. and I have been sick to my stomach the last few days and haven't felt much like eating and I had a craving for onion rings. I loooove their food D:
I drew a little doodle with ARTRAGE this FABULOUS art program I found via the artist for Echo Bazaar. It is the best pencil-mimicker I have used so far, and I just love how well it works with my tablet :3 I hope to save enough for the Studio version :3
