Sketch: Tired Jazz
I am taking a class over Computer Security because I do not have a job and soon will also not have healthcare. I say “class”, but it’s really more of a “boot camp”: tons of stuff, all at once, almost nine hours a day, unspecified amounts of homework… Understandably, I’m incredibly tired and stressed.
I hadn’t drawn Jasmine Harper in a while. Jazz is one of my older characters, whom I gave a number of my more hyperactive, scatterbrained characteristics. These are also the characteristics that leave me exhausted, always, so I’ve updated her to also be really tired, bags under the eyes and all. It’s not my best work… but I’m tired.
I sketched up a rough concept for another Dungeons and Dragons character for our West Marches campaign; due to our unfortunate tank-to-caster ratio, I created them to bolster our tanky numbers. They’re a Warforged Monk, based off of Atom from Real Steel.
I drop in on the Mor Ardain/Uraya summit because Mòrag has gotten news that Bana is planning an attack. We: gather clues; determine that Tirkin are attempting to poison the food; everyone ignores the giant, rattling crate; Rex shouts the word “Poison” really weird; and Bana manages to kill Niall in a last, desperate shot.
Not through any merit of his own, mind you… but because Niall is dumb.
I drew Bravo again. I’ve started a West Marches Dungeons and Dragons game and I put her together as a Shadowcat Warlock. The boots could use more work, I think, and my perpetual problem with role-playing her is that I’m am neither: a) black, b) a woman, nor c) British.
I make my way to Frontier Village, the home of the Nopon, in pursuit of a way to the Bionis’ head. After Shulk and crew learn more about Melia and her reasons for being in Makna Forest, they get introduced to the year’s Legendary Heropon, Riki!
I begin the Final Trial of the Sword late at night and I’m slightly delirious. I do not like the Bone Zone™.
In this cutscene-heavy episode, Amalthus holds a summit between the leaders of Mor Ardain and Uraya to try and stave off open war. Afterwards, Nia and Mythra put the “fun” into Fan la Norne’s funeral.
