Writing has been going great. Filling in the encounter stats for the latest project, which I am play testing this weekend. Got about half way done with the stats then moved onto my day, trip to the dentist, took a break and back to work... BUT... I had to do a map.
I don't really do maps, I mean I can, and I kinda like to, but it takes time. That's time I could be writing, so... I don't do maps. BUT... an editor asked me to do a couple of hand drawn maps so a real artist could work from them and make something for this exciting old school fantasy project I wrote back in November.
I don't want to give away spoilers but there one of the maps is for an evil temple, a really evil temple, filled with demon orgies, abyssal armies and surrounded by a horde of zombies. Yeah, it's way over the top, so what! They call stuff like this "Classic" for a reason, because it's awesome.
So, as I am finishing up my cat, Carmine Kimmie Tsathoggua McFatass Rios comes over for some love. I pet him, we do some play fighting and then we both go back to what we were doing. Suddenly there is a reddish brow smudge on the map... it's a bloodstain! The cat scratched a hole in my finger and as I finished drawing I smeared the map with my blood...
So, I just finished work on an old school map of an evil temple, complete with bloodstains.
Like I said... they call shit like this "Classic" for a reason.
