So, I'm trying to get past my writers block for the Fallout story. One of my ideas was that I'm a bit burned out with Fallout, and I just need to do something else briefly to rekindle my ability to write in Fallout. So I've been going over some of my various characters from WoW, and trying to scribble down some notes for short stories with them. I may try and actually post some of those short stories, but while going through the notes I noticed a rather disturbing pattern with almost all of them.

They're very, very angry. Word of warning: if you don't care or know about the Warcraft universe, then feel free to skip this journal.

Let's start with the newest one first, the Demon Hunter: Sayn'aa Sindweller. I knew that Demon Hunters would be released eventually, so I already had backstory for a character all ready and written up for years beforehand, waiting for the day. And anger is kind of a huge part of every Demon Hunter, partly against the Legion, but also against their kin who fear and hunt them constantly, not understanding the sacrifices they make to fight the demons. She's angry, specifically, because she was a former Sentinel who fought in the War of the Satyr, and every other Sentinel she fought alongside was murdered by the demons. For her, there will never be a victory until the Legion is destroyed.

She's the most likely candidate for a short story, if only so I can draw her. Because, in my head, she doesn't look as skinny as her character model; she is built like a brick shithouse. She's almost 10,000 years old, and has been fighting demons almost that entire time. Those warglaives of hers are as long as she is tall, and swinging them around constantly means she should have some fucking sick pythons for arms.

Next is my paladin, Vahlri. She's relatively young for a draenei - only 400 years old - and was born on Draenor. She wasn't always a paladin either. For most of her life, she was a gemcutter. Then the orcish horde arrived, sacked Shattrath, and murdered almost her entire family. During the decades in exile, hiding from the orcs and their demon masters in the Burning Legion, she trained as a paladin. She wasn't strong enough to save her friends and family before, but never again. So she channels that anger - at the orcs, at the demons, and at herself for not being good enough the first time - and focuses it. And that's dangerous for a paladin, relying on that much anger.

Then there's my warrior, Captain Davira "Brass Knuckles" Smythe. Despite being a Worgen, she's not from Gilneas. She's from Kul Tiras. I honestly don't know how she contracted the Worgen Curse, because I haven't written it yet. But she is a pirate, through and through, so I'm sure you know what to expect. She's almost constantly drunk on rum, her favorite method of greeting is either a headbutt or a punch to the the wedding tackle, and she generally solves every problem thrown her way with violence. Because violence is not the answer; violence is the question. The answer is YES. There are reasons for her violent nature and why she drinks so much, but I've never really explored it because... she's a pirate. That's all the explanation you really need.

And finally, we have the warlock, Tuera Ashama. She's not really all that angry, she's just completely psychotic. To be honest, I'm not sure if I should include my mage character, Zepharre Villalobos, as that character isn't really a character, but is actually just a disguise and/or split personality for the warlock. Considering how nuts Warlock!Tuera is, neither would surprise me.

I'm also not including the death knight version of Tuera or Sheason, because technically speaking, neither of them are supposed to be on Azeroth. Phyacair also probably doesn't count, because his whole character starts and ends with servitude to the warlock.

I'm starting to suspect something may actually be wrong with me.

FUCK.


Okay. I admit it. That was cool. I'm looking forward to this now. I'm certainly looking forward to it at lot more than I looked forward to The Force Awakens, and that turned out Basically Okay.

Gonna go watch the Despecialized Edition again now.

So, I dug up my old tablet. At first I thought I was pretty rusty. And I am. But the more I tried to draw, I realized some things: the tablet has developed a very dodgy detection system where the movements I make only translate to movements on the screen about 75% of the time. Also, the tablet stylus only has one working button - the pressure sensitive tip - with a grip that's constantly shifting the pen out of my hands, completely defeating the purpose of a grip.

If there is one thing this proves, it's that I need a new tablet.

So, the Legion Invasion pre-expansion event is well underway in World of Warcraft. And you'd think that after more than a decade of this, they'd get better at doing pre-expansion events. Last time, people couldn't even log in because the servers were so overloaded. That's not a problem this time (at least, not yet). Now, the problem is the 10 billion people crowding around the single NPC needed to complete important event quests that's causing lag so bad, I've seen people waiting for 6 hours just to try and turn in a single quest.

Remember this meme from the last expansion?

Well, I decided to make a version for this one.

You know the determination that every single Fallout Protagonist has can be summed up in this Quote from the Originals Memoirs

“None could stand in my way. I had a mission. I had a goal. I had a really large gun."

Wonder where that "Sentimental old fool." is now. Last we saw of him was in the Game Brotherhood of Steel. fallout.wikia.com/wiki/File:22…
He probably, got himself frozen in a cryo as killing him proved too damn hard. Because had'd gotten to be close friends with Death from Diskworld.

One variation looks like something from Ghost in the Shell. www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mod…? Or something from an 80s Action/Sci Fi flick.
Which GiS  is.... Kind of makes saying that redundant now.

No, that variation on the bottom with the head enclosed in a pod that doesn't move looks like how Marauder suit were described in Heinlen's Starship Troopers. As in, the book.
