Get prepared for a flood of virtual pics! Bwahahahaha!


Restarted Dishonored as then I could get pics and also because my daughter kept saying how easy it was to get the ghost badge. (It's NOT!) But dang it if I wasn't going to take up that challenge. Heh heh heh. (For Mission 1 I've now gotten the Vanished and Ghost badges. Bwahahahaha (1st guy super easy, next 2 guys...agony...)



Movie sequence (so surprised it let me take this). The room is filled with water to let the boat rise to the upper level.



This is once the building is filled.



The royal palace.



The Empress and her daughter Emily. 



One of the many bizarre posters in this world. You can also see the flintlock that's one of the available weapons, the number of bullets I have, and the crouching icon for moving around silently



The prison I just escaped from.



The sewers.



Your first encounter with the piranha rats. Click in for the bigger view. Yes, definitely makes this game not suitable for for kids. (These 2 guards were alive when they got attacked and then devoured by the things. Eek!)



Graffiti is all over the place. 



Some beautiful foliage.



The pic doesn't show it but there a strange yellow smoke that curls out from these lamps. Also can see the handheld mini crossbow in my left hand.



Picked up by Sam once I escaped the sewers. Off to meet the people who arranged for my rescue. Nice there is someone out there who knows I didn't kill The Empress. Phew!


Star Wars The Old Republic

Republic Side

Voss



Click the bigger pic to get a look at the wild purple lizards. Hee!



Totally love the look of this entrance!



Cool Voss stuff!






Going through this tunnel in the shuttle was cool!



Is this the ugliest crab monster ever or what?



Cave is filled with them. Eek!



Young man with possible Oracle powers. The one reason the Empire is wanting this place on their side so badly - to get people who can see the future. 



Funky array.




Some players came through these ruins before us making our task much easier. :)



More Voss ruins.




Love love love the ruins with other buildings and the world coming up in the back!




All right that's it for this round. Heh heh heh. Have an awesome Sunday!

Novels


JEWEL OF THE GODS

(2015) Fantasy

The King is Dead! Long Live the Undead King!


Excerpt:
"What are you implying?"

The magister glided forward and scrunched down beside him.

"That in order to bathe, you must first actually get into the bath."





INNER DEMONS

(2014) Urban Fantasy

It took everything from her, except revenge!


Excerpt:
The muscles in my right arm jerked from tension as I tried to make it move and it resisted. A shrill scream inside my head insisted I didn't want to do this. That if I did, there'd be no way to take it back. "I...I'm afraid."



THE PRICE OF MERCY

(2011) Young Adult – Fantasy

Which is worse…the monster without or within?


Excerpt:

Home—family—the two things he would never have, the two things forever denied him…because of her.

Anger welled inside him, the heat of it suffusing him to the core, gurgling with seething emotions the total opposite of the coolness splashing down from the fountain nearby. Before he realized what he was doing, Jarrin stepped inside the gazebo.




CROSS-EYED DRAGON TROUBLES
(2007) Young Adult – Fantasy
“Harry Potter meets Dragon Riders of Pern”

Excerpt:

“Do you need any help?” she asked. “Just tell me what you want me to do. If you prefer, I’m sure I can round up at least a few people to come over and give you a hand.”

Kel slowly shook his head. “It’s all right. Thanks anyway.” His voice lowered to where she almost couldn’t hear it. “This is all part of my punishment.’

She frowned, not understanding what he meant. “Punishment?”

Kel cocked his head in Clarence’s direction. In a flash, she understood. None of this was an accident. Clarence had landed there deliberately, hoping to make Kel pay for all he went through in the past month. She shook her head, not wanting to believe this, but what the dragon said next took any doubts right out of her head.



WILLING SACRIFICE
(2008) Young Adult – Fantasy
“To save the world she must DIE! Or must she?”

Excerpt:

Panic and fear filled with utter helplessness made her dizzy. She knew what would be done with her, she knew what they planned. But there was nothing she could do to stop any of it.

Sharp gasps echoed in her ears as she felt the room’s cold air caress the Eye.

“You were right. She is the one.”



IN THE SERVICE OF SAMURAI
(2002) Adult/YA – Japanese Fantasy Adventure
“The Last Samurai meets Pirates of the Caribbean”

Excerpt:

Laying the blade on the floor before him, Toshi parted his kimono until his stomach lay exposed. He tucked his sleeves beneath his legs to hold him upright if he should falter. Ignoring Asano, he took up the blade. His shoulder flared with pain and he tried not to flinch, as he grabbed the blade with both hands. He turned the wakizashi until its sharp point was aimed at his belly, the residence of his soul.



VASSAL OF EL
(2004) Adult/YA – Fantasy Mystery
“He tried to forget his past, but his past wouldn’t forget him”

Excerpt:

Torren took a step back a sudden shudder racking through him. It was as if he’d never left, as if the boy he’d been would be coming back-though the one who’d loved this room and all these things was long, long dead. That boy died when he’d watched his father’s blood pour forth from his mouth, the end of a sword protruding from his abdomen. That boy died when he survived while everyone else lay dead.
