So here are some Gencon 2014 photos and Videos. I will probably have more to come in the near future.

None of these are really from the Shroud of the Avatar meet, but they do include a lot of stuff with Tracy Hickman.

You can look at the photos over here in the CBD Gallery:

Hoe of destruction becomes reality!

Ok, a lot of jokes can be made here and I fully admit that I’m working hard to avoid them. Seriously though this latest creation of William O Billman II is awesome! For you old Ultima fans that Remember the Hoe of Destruction, a real life version has been created! I love the handle on this thing. If you do not remember it from game, then it’s not going to mean much to you.

Be sure to also check out his Shroud of the Avatar Geocaching project’s with a Shroud of the Avatar theme

GC50PW1 The Wisps of Braemar (Unknown Cache) in Maryland, United States created by Captain XJ and Starbuck2011.

Awesome stuff! I hope to never upset this man as this thing could do some serious damage.

And one lick to Rule them!

Im calling it an early night tonight, going to grab a little down time and read for a bit. I tackle my big work on the weekends anyway 🙂

but I didn’t want to head off without getting at least ONE post out there… so here we go. This is what happens when the booze flows at Portalarium and why an HR manager just isn’t on the map. Also why I love our dev’s so much! As a “business professional”, I have to worry if I look at someone oddly. I can’t have this much fun at work 😛

Did you see the head lick?

Not sure what I am talking about?

Really? Well.. This really happened. Personally? Great stuff! Chances of them ever getting an HR person to agree to hire on? Never gonna happen *chuckles*.

Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond photo Gallery goes mobile!

If you weren’t aware already, the Caverns website is mobile friendly. As is the Forums. What was NOT very mobile friendly was our photo gallery.

This was a shame as you will find it one of the most robust photo galleries for Shroud of the Avatar related photos around. Every image that has been released, that is not Dev+ or founder only, that I am aware of.. has been put into it. Logo’s, dev’s, screen shots, concept’s you name it! Most stuff is under an album called “pre-alpha” at this time as once the game comes out I will be making albums based on current game stuff and wanted to keep the pre-release stuff separated out – since it may change. Don’t worry, there are many sub-albums.

Anyway – GOOD NEWS! The Caverns photo Gallery has now gone mobile!!! There are some devices it may not work well on and I apologize for that. But most people will not get a mobile friendly theme on their phone while retaining the theme you are used to on your desktop.

Enjoy the photos on the go! Thanks!

Gallery.

Fan Art by Gary Blauvel

These pieces of art where made by Gary Blauvel and posted on his Deviant Art site. These are pretty fantastic! If anyone is looking for an artist to hire for SotA related artwork, this may be your guy! I know Id certainly love to have something done. Great stuff!

Here’s his website:

GrimGary (Comics / Horror / Women / Unconventionality) on deviantART.

A small token painting for Portalarium and Richard Garriot. It made me happy to hear the announcement that Lord British was returning to his roots, and it inspired me to do this mixed media painting. So thank you, RG and crew

My latest Shroud of the Avatar fan piece that I did inside a day. I didn't get to a total completion stage, as I was doing this for a video and time was running out to get it done. I'll have to go back and touch it up a little. I hope you all enjoy the picture! The video of the speed art will be up on my youtube channel
