Where art thou brave Arilou?

Well it's been awhile since I last foamed at the mouth and sputtered out some words over here. A large part of that is just because my interest in this has waned somewhat. The last time I attempted to come up with creative ways to find topics to write about, it spilled over into the game and I would like to keep the two separate as much as possible. That's why there's a comments section - You can use them to point and laugh at me or debate my thickheaded self as much as you want. I'll read it all and if it's interesting enough I might even incorporate it into furture blog posts. Anyway, another part of it is that my time has become more limited than it used to be. Lots of things have been going on in my daily life and in the game (as you should be well aware unless you've been living in a hole).

Despite this, I'm going to make an attempt to post on a more regular basis. Right now, I have plans for a series of new posts. Specifically, they will detail a number of game inspirations of mine which have an impact on my Wyvern content. I'll go into a little backstory about the games, post some screenshots, and point out where you can see how they've affected my creations. I promise, it'll be more interesting than I make it sound. I'm also still going to be making posts after every area that I introduce to the game. At the rate I'm currently going I should get one, maybe two posts out of that every 5 years... yeah, no, the more I think about it, two might be stretching it a bit. In any case, there's a lot to look forward to if you are one of those sorry sacks that are locked in your room without a TV and have heavy parent controls on your Internet browser. Although now that I think on it, I'm surprised this blog isn't blocked as well. A fanatical little green alien with delusions of grandeur and homicidal tendencies that likes to talk to the voices in his head isn't exactly a good influence on young minds. Then again I have a lot to teach the little ones. Where else are they going to learn to gut an elf or roast a plump dwarf? These are important skills people! Those pixies aren't going to bake themselves you know.
