The Provisional House

Hey lady N, have you ever read the webcomic 'Kill Six Billion Demons? It seems to be inspired by morrowind, but in a 'love letter' sort of way -- it does it's own thing and the art style is fantastic. I feel like it's something you'd like. from Anonymous

I’ve not kept up with it recently, but I’ve read it in the past and would most definitely recommend it to all my followers (or, really, to just about anyone). The art is gorgeous and the story and worldbuilding is a whole lot of fun. 

The author has called it an “obtuse 36 lessons fan comic,” if you guys need any more endorsements :P 


Wanted: Battle of Hunding Bay miniseries featuring Lance Reddick as Prince A’tor and Angela Basset as Iszara.

A bit of a story on how I came to join the TES fandom. I originally wrote it to go alongside this post, but then decided against publishing it. Now feels like a more appropriate time. 

Personal under the cut.

So much delicious mapness. Surely a serious nod to…

"Nod" is probably an understatement :) 

Sorry, I hadn’t deduced it was the same artist:)

Greatly looking forward to the release!

Oh, not the same artist, sorry. I am neither that old nor that awesome :P I just meant that, especially in the beginning of the piece, I was basically trying to channel William Church.


In-character excerpt from a conversation that eventually lead to the creation of the second edition Pocket Guide to the Empire.

Eruditio Perperam, 3E 122-201, on the matter of hero worship in Cyrodiil:
There are two types of people who are called heroes - one is called so justly, the other falsely. The word “hero” comes originally from the Aldmeri “ല്ലാത” whose meaning means most closely “son of god” or “godlike” [note: “first irreversible degradation past all natural perfection” is slightly more accurate]. From this means the true meaning of “hero” - one who is divinity made flesh. The famous 1st era Pelinal is perhaps the best example, being an avatar of Talos. The second, false, “hero” is a mere mortal whose deeds place him above his ilk. Although these often represent favorable qualities, they are by no means divine and should not be worshiped as such. Deifying morals dilutes our knowledge of our true gods. 

It is dangerous, also, because these “heroes” are often nothing more than insertionist fantasies. Consider for a second all the “saints” that arose immediately following the Alessian Rebelion. Agdistra, Losha, Niisa, al-Khered, Andrea, an-Tasha, and countless others: each tribe has its own savior figure, often little more than a recontextualization of the Slave Queen. Each tribe wanted its own claim to fame, its own patron saint. The rise of human nobility only made the phenomena worse: now each family needed to have a demigod hero to be the source of their divine blood and their divine right to rule. From these needs arose a great many culture heroes, some of which remain little more than hearth-side stories. The others however have risen from obscurity to worship or outright divinity, and have been sloppily grafted onto the true histories of the Divines. Sed-Yenna is an excellent example of such a “hero,” a woman who likely never existed but who has been raised up in connection to Reman and is now worshiped in the north as a deity of women, children, and fate.

Found on Google drive: essay titled

"The Book Become Almost Human:
A Nietzschean analysis of fandoms”


Super excited to be able to talk about this! The draft map above is of the Prax/Dragon Pass area of Glorantha, for the 13th Age In Glorantha Kickstarter, and, as you can probably tell, it’s one of the things I’ve been spending all my time on lately. You can read a bit more about it and what still remains to be done in this update. It’s been an absolute pleasure to be a small part of this epic project with all these wonderful artists and designers :)
If you’re unfamiliar with Glorantha, you should totally fix that right now. The website describes Glorantha as “a world of mythic fantasy, where mythology is real,” but if that’s not enough to convince you, know that it was one of the biggest influences on the lore of the Elder Scrolls. 
The Kickstarter is fully funded, and a big ol’ print of the map is available as an add-on for $20.   View Larger
