The Banner Saga | Fan Art

The Banner Saga is a Viking-themed tactical role-playing video game developed by Stoic, a trio of indie game developers formerly of BioWare, and published by Versus Evil.

The core of the game is a single-player campaign of turn-based combat engagements inspired by games such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Shining Force, with the player controlling and being able to build up a party of characters with complementing abilities.

The Banner Saga centers on the return of the Dredge – a warlike race that despises humans – led by Bellower, a nigh invincible Dredge who leads them on a warpath. As a wandering army sent to fight against the Dredge and find a weakness for Bellower, the caravan make many difficult decisions that would shape the fate of both man and Varl.

This is an illustration I created based on the game.

The 4 types of Bigfoot

It’s probably more like sub species.

There’re 8 sub-species of Tigers, so… it does happen.

The Big Thicket is 112,000 acres and has 10 distinct eco systems, it’s the second most biodiverse area on earth. If something weird and hard to find was going to live anywhere… that would be the place. Well… there or in the 22 million acres of forestland in Washington.

CTHULATHON: Day 365

It is 11:44 as I type this.

After an entire year, this last post comes in with just minutes to spare.

I drew this at the cemetery behind St. John’s Church on Main Street, just off Church Street.
This is a place HPL would hang out and take friends. Edgar Allen Poe took people there too.

It is creepy as hell.

I’m uploading it from the Fleur-de-lys Studios

Thank u to everyone who has joined me for any part of this journey.

I’m driving to Providence Rhode Island to complete the 365th and final sketch in the CTHULATHON series.

It’s a 12 hour drive, but I won’t be facing this terrifying vista of reality alone, I’ll have the The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast to keep me company — as well as the belief that with Mercury in retrograde and the Blood-moon eclipse at my back the stars are right again.

CTHULATHON: Day 364

…consciousness was manifested, perhaps, in shapes and forms long since withdrawn before the tide of advancing humanity… forms of which poetry and legend alone have caught a flying memory and called them gods, monsters, mythical beings of all sorts and kinds…
