Courtney Crumrin and the prince of nowhere

The art for this looks pretty cool. It reminds me of Hellboy. It looks like the sort of things that would give good ideas and pictures for rpgs.

Genius

Genius

American character from a American author talking about an American topic, cool. Female character cool.

17 year old child dressed and drawn like that. Not cool.

17 year old child being shouted and threatened by police. Not cool.

17 year old ordering murders. Not cool.

I don’t like being the gang equivalent of a child solider being glamoured.

If the character was 28, I’d be way more interested in this story.

Hellboy

I liked hellboy overall. I can do this however as getting the characters are completely different to the book.

The elves were based off a mix of irish and norse mythology. Nuada of the tuatha, they had a interesting take on. I wasn’t sure if they based the king on Balor or Baldr.

I liked the take of fairy shot. I liked the fact he fought with a spear like weapon turned sword.

Nuala, I would have though maybe etain, might have been a better choose to base it off, but they were probally going with its an irish name that sounds simular.

The skin patterns were pretty interesting mixed with the blond hair that look limed and the traditional long hair on the men and women.

The golden gridles on all the royalty also had me going “oh what such a nice reference”, because I’m remembering the myths associated with them.

I’m unsure how much they were really thinking about most of this, but it was pretty cool for me.

I really really wish Nuala didn’t die though. However I can’t think of anything else she could have done to stop Nuada with a blood bond tie working between them. Maybe pay someone like Morrigan to break it.

Oh and I loved the raven headed warriors. A nice reference to Odin, and an Morrigan.

I do get the imagary is really really mixed, compared to the books that are very based on actual myths.

Something good from something bad

August 23, 2008 at 8:33 pm (Uncategorized)

This is not a joke. This is not satire. This is not a test.

It came from a stoopid idea from Wiscon. Its worth reading the history of what happened before this. I got to admit, if you don’t know anyone at a con, I’m not surprised if you dont want to go. I have heard and seen some pretty dumb stuff even in irish gaming circles.
