If you haven't already heard, Wolcen just dropped a huge 1GB content patch yesterday (6/24/2019). They added a lot of good stuff, and they are really moving along in the development path. If you haven't heard of "Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem" before, it is an Action RPG similar to Diablo III that is being developed for Steam by Wolcen Studios. On a side note, it is on sale this week for 20% off! https://store.steampowered.com/app/424370/Wolcen_Lords_of_Mayhem/
We have been at it since day one, that ugly and...well, let's just stick with ugly...launch. Even through the lag muck and server instability, you could read the stars and see the potential. Right off the bat it was only for the tough, and we barreled through the glitchy log-ins, the shaky starter zones and the wretched "lawless" starting areas and found our way to the rafts. Some were able to get to our island after 3-4 hours of learning how to tack, zig zag and fight through server borders and with a full stack of human hides, and then some were finally rescued after what seemed like days of being eaten alive by scorpions and crocodiles, only to quickly get used to dying to the cold, the wolves, the alpha horses, the water, the sharks and each other's general noob mistakes.
Yes, with the known developer, we did try to ARK it, or Dark and Light it...hell, we've even tried to Life is Feudal this one....and Atlas is just NOT those games. Some visuals and sounds are there, but the depth and options and functionality is just SO much more. What really took the game from just another ARK expansion to, the potential mmo of the decade, was getting out on our first schooner, the SS Skjoldr (video below). The experience was entirely PvE, but when you have 13 people packed on to a single vessel and the guys repairing the ship are as vital as the helmsman steering and the deckhands manning the sails, it became something I haven't seen in a game since our friday night flights on the Decimator back in SWG.
We have had just a blast learning the game and surviving our island and our neighbors over the past couple weeks. Though it may appear as if we are well off enough, growing from 30 actives day one, to more than double that now, we absolutely could use more folks interested in living the Atlas life. Whether you are interested in navigating the high seas, captaining a brigand, farming the tundra, mucking through politics, taming elephants or exploring the massive (30-40 hours of sailing from one end to the other) world, it is all here and we have many members willing to help you get started.
Here is a few screencaps and videos to give you an idea of what we have been up to:

Ok so I have been working on something cool for a game I am soon going to be getting into hardcore. The game Heavy Gear Blitz is a Tabletop War game with Minis and is very cool to play. I do not know the rules yet, but I have always been a fan of the Heavy Gear series.
The project I am doing is going to be making land ships for real life gameplay. What are land ships? Land ships are the mainstay of the armies of the North and South in the Heavy Gear universe. They range from Land Carri
Now to clarify before people get confused on the tags, the mecha comic is separate from the comic that will be worked on for the Enmity of Creation Project.
I had a great idea pop into my brain like earlier today and started thinking on it entirely. I thought to myself I need a good idea to start working on my artwork, something that I KNOW I will love doing no matter what. And these ideas came into play. What I am going to do starting possibly sunday, I am going to start working on a me
This week is already shot for me to do anything seeing as how I am every day drowsy from the meds I am on so doing anything this week is probably fool hardy. That being said I will try to start on stuff Sunday.
What I intend to start on is artwork, Job Hunting and get some start on the Enmity of Creation Project.
I'm debating on either doing watercolor or something 3D to start working on for my artwork. OR...something big to work on for awhile. Not sure yet. I will also be starting
I am drowsy at the moment thanks to the new medication I was put on by my neurologist. This is hopefully going to kill the migraines good. So far it's working only it has a serious side affect that I need to get used to. It's making me super drowsy right now so me driving anywhere is like out of the question. At least until the affects wear off that I'm not bothered by it anymore.
Also, likelihood of me getting a W on my classes for this semester are probably good cause the amount of do
So yeah I have been trying to do some artwork cause yep...I am withdrawing medically from this semester cause of incessant migraines that will NOT go away. This is only temporary. Will be going back to school in the fall. However, it will make my graduation date now sometime in December cause of this withdrawal. My gpa is intact, but my graduation date is not. Anyway, always a plus and minus to everything.
So, I will post what I have been working on. Been fooling around in DAZ and now
Well my semester is getting closer and closer to being finished and first year done for masters. However, likelihood of me doing good this semester probably not good cause my health has hindered my progress. I maybe put on academic probation so I have a chance of improving my gpa next semester. As long as i pull off good grades next semester, I'll be brought out of it.
Anyway, thats not this blog is about. What it IS about is what stuff I will be purchasing in the future to further my c
So, this weekend I think I will start on working on my artwork as a whole. I have been trying to brainstorm ideas for each of my strengths that I have and have come up with many so far. However, I want to do at least start on one or two this weekend.
Some of the ideas I have come up with range from Comic Book style artwork to 3D renderings and so on and so on. I am leaning on towards finishing 2 watercolor paintings I have already started and something 3D to start as well.
I think t
