A cloud covered, sleepy morning. Zzzzzzzzz.


Dishonored

The Outsider

After Mission 1 and meeting the people who gave you a chance to escape, you got to sleep and then wake up. Except you're not really awake. You're here - a mesh of times and places - the playground of The Outsider.


Water flows upwards here. 



The Outisder. Not good, not evil, more like chaos personified. And you're going to be his new agent. He opens up some magical like skills. The first one is Blink. The sign for it is in the pic below next to my new mana bar.



Very surreal place. An image of the Empress dead again.



Whales are a weird recurring theme. The method used to kill them is rather gruesome. They make sure they're kept alive while being flayed. I wonder if the plague is whale retribution.



And speaking of whales, there's the big one from the dream sequence. If you'll click to the larger pic you can see it has weird jowels and OX8 written on the side. Weird!



Some machines I foresee being in my future. Eek!



The Outsider is also the one who gave me the heart. The one I suspect he made from the Empress' heart. Double eek!



The tall spire there is the real spire. On the pic above this one, the spire was on its side and I am looking into it in the dream world.



Sunrise/Sunset over the city.



About to set off on Mission 2


Star Wars The Old Republic

Jedi Consular

Voss

(Went a little overboard this week)



Empire infiltrate area on Voss


Voss really has such cool designs.


Elevator shaft.


More Voss architecture


Roaming Voss Bovine. :P



Love those lamps!



One of the main shrines of Voss. The Mystics are here. 




Altar where we try to talk to the Mystics


Dream/Spiritual world where we are tested by the Mystics. The guys make a lot less sense when they speak than the Eshka, despite the fact they seem to speak in a straight forward manner. Almost gave me a headache. :P


Big nasty and ourselves in spirit mode.




A Voss Mystic in the spirit world.



No idea what the thing in the back is, but looked cool.



Stone tablets of previous Mystics.



Love the glowing stone lamp, but also the cool flooring.



Yes, chains in all the decorating!



Bad Sith trying to poison the souls of psychic Voss people who didn't make Mystic range.






Voss zone now taken over by the Gormak. 



The Gormak look like Creature of The Black Lagoon relatives. 




Their hands are almost claw like. (Love it when dead peeps stay standing. Does make for photo ops!)



Here's another one. Look at the size of his bazooka! Dang.




I do love me some world in the background shots!



Inside another shrine. This one has not been treated kindly by the Gormak.



I've been out collecting relic pieces. Now to put them back together.

Have an awesome week!

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.
