InkTober Week 2 Roundup

This week I did more with analogue art, that is, actual pens. Nothing fancy, though I pulled out an old calligraphy marker of mine and had some fun with that. I’m eagerly anticipating a new Pentel brush pen, which I found out about when I looked up the actual origin of InkTober. It’s pretty interesting really. Next week if I like the pen I’ll link to it.

I am still not really doing anything particularly serious, though I’m thinking about doing a webcomic about the antics of my insane kittens. I’ve been getting out of the habit of doing art so I’m trying to recapture the fun and playful spirit of it.

Anyway, here goes!

Horse Isle 3 – Epics (updated)

The recent update was truly cool! In it was introduced a wonderful variety of Epic Monuments. They are huge, impressive looking, and replace all the obelisks that used to dot our vast landscape. There is a type for each of the biomes and the first player to discover each one is immortalized on the “about” text associated with each one. Because no one could build anything on a plot that had a Cave or an Obelisk, they are all on public land.

Some of the items you can find are pretty great too! Things like giant Gaia Trees in the Fall Forest, or seriously huge Sequoias in the Rain Forest, or pyramids in Jungle. There are shipwrecks in the oceans now as well. You get an Epic Medallion every time you make a new discovery and you can also get awards for discovering a certain number.

Epic Medallions can be donated to your Club and go toward unlocking new building/decor slots. For people not into clubs, they are also sellable and I anticipate a brisk business in them.

WHO DUNNIT? An Antarctic Mystery — Chronicles from Concordia

ESA-sponsored medical doctor Stijn has been overseeing the biomedical studies at Concordia, collecting stool and blood samples to investigate the changes to the human body brought on by living in isolated, confined and extreme environments like Antarctica. But he’s found that some of his samples are missing. In a base where no one can get […]
