Storm of Zehir & Other Inspirations

Things are quieter now and I find myself inspired once again. First, the announcement of Storm of Zehir, the second expansion for NWN2 has me all excited for the really cool new content, like Dinosaurs, and snakes, and everything tropical. The addition of the Overland Map and the new Party System is really cool and offers a lot of great story options that just weren't there before.

I'm not sure if it's the heat of California or I'm secretly wanting to go hike in the mountains, but I've almost finished an area prefab for the Serpent Spine Mountains that will be part of a trail leading to Stonegate. The picture is of an ice cave that the player can find with Yetis.

As if reading my mind, ArtEChoke from the Cutom Content Forums has done work on the Uthraki model from MotB and made Yeti. Hopefully they will be released on the Vault soon.

News Snippets From Strumpets

It's been a while since I updated things do to a rather extensive move to California and then summer hitting, which turns out to be my busiest time. The month of July was nuts. I was lucky to check news, let alone open the toolset.

After the ridiculous process of packing my life into a truck and driving across country, I've finally settled in. I've even had the chance to do some more photography, which this area is almost perfect for.

The scorpion is a common household pest here. At least these aren't the deadly type.
