Someone’s had enough Wintersday cheer for today. (Remember cubs, don’t try this at home. If you feel the urge to set a tree on fire, please ask a properly trained elementalist.) Based on the prompt SENTIMENT from my patron Ignado (and the “disaster girl” meme). Thank you, Ignado, for your support!

How would a charr soldier wear their dog tag? A chain around their massive neck would have to be awkwardly long, so I thought: why not use an engraved wristband instead? Maybe not exactly “ingenious” but I just wanted to make something shiny and mechanical and I’ve had this wristband dog tag idea for a while now. Seemed like a good opportunity. 😼

For the four legion prompts this Charrtober, we’re mixing cocktails: The Cloak and Dagger (shaken and stirred) is popular among Ash Legion agents - goes down smooth but packs a punch! Thank you to my patron Ignado for the drinks idea, and to Tabra for the name of this cocktail.

This place is crazier than the Mad King’s Labyrinth… For this prompt, I wanted to make one of those “weird geometry” environments. I actually rebuilt the whole place from M. C. Escher’s “Relativity” which was a mistake because it cost me like half a day, and it turned out very difficult to light properly. Eventually I ran out of time and used only a smaller part of it for the final scene… On the positive side though, I had a lot of fun building this.

Aside from their destructive power on the battlefield, elementalists can also mix awesome cocktails. Warrick here has kindly volunteered to make a “Burned Soldier” - you have to drink it while it’s still on fire, obviously. For the prompt “mixology” - thank you, Warrick, for your support, and for the cocktail!

One less enemy to worry about. Fully vaccinated warrior, for the prompt “liberation” from my patron Ripa. Blood Legion has the coolest (war)band-aids. A personal note: Just because vaccinations aren’t a big deal for some doesn’t mean everyone can be so relaxed. I’ve had some traumatic experiences with doctors in my childhood, and my relationship with medical procedures is rather tense. Getting vaccinated is the right thing to do, but I felt that neither traditional nor social media were helping much with that.

True heroes aren’t patriots - they overcome patriotism. From Blood Legion to the Vigil and then to the Pact: Almorra never got stuck in close-minded thinking about one group being better than others. She moved past all that and united all of Tyria against the Elder Dragons. Based on the prompt “patriot” from my patron Ripa. Thank you for your support! 💙

After careful review of the Citadel Assault Glider design, United Legion engineers came to the conclusion that it wasn’t quite assault-y enough. The Mk. II here features 3,000 pounds of “enhancements”. Based on the prompt “dropping” from my patron Lacsap - thank you for your support!

VRChat avatar commission for Brutus of his Ash Legion charr, Radnur Burntsoul, wielding an Ash Legion Combat Blade, and a cigarette. As with Lacsap previously, this is a collaboration with my friend Driggs, who will handle the rigging and other VRChat magic in the next step. I’ll post an update if I can manage to get video footage of Radnur later!

I’m still working on our next VRChat charr, but as a quick weekend project I thought I’d try making a (very short) visual novel with Ren’Py. You can play it in your web browser! Don’t expect anything spectacular - I used only screenshots from Guild Wars 2 for this, and dialogue I originally wrote for a Q&A thing on Tumblr. But it was a fun project, and I might play more with the idea in the future.
