I pour a lot of myself into the design and feel of each of my notebooks; however, if I had to choose only one, I would probably choose the kraken with the wyvern being a very close second. I have always been fascinated with the mythology surrounding fantastical beasts.
I am intrigued by their stories and how they seem to take various forms across cultures and histories. So many RPG adventures take us on journeys where we are able to encounter these creatures, so of course I wanted to create some notebooks that reflected those adventures.
I have a day job working as a public servant in finance and contract procurement. Sounds like a hard left from tabletop gaming, right?
All of my characters are my favourites. But, I will tell you about my current one - she is an orcish primalist mage whose powers were awakened while she was overcome by grief over the passing of a loved one.
Terrified by her sudden powers, her tribe's elders banished her from their town and threw her out wearing only the clothes she had on her back. She made her way offering her services as a medic to those in need in exchange for some coin.
Eventually, she befriends a very talkative (if a bit of a know-it-all) gnome and has joined a team of adventurers seeking the truth behind giant attacks on various towns. As she journeys along with them, she is constantly in search of another mage who might be able to give her some insight into what her powers mean, why she has them, and secretly and ultimately, how she can use them to bring back her lost loved one
I do see Silverwing Armoury as a long term thing. I would eventually like to see the operation grow into something that I might do full time, perhaps expanding the line into other useful paper goods for RPGs. In the meantime, I am enjoying the ride!
