Forum Games & Nonsense
If you were playing a Dungeons and Dragons Pen and Paper game, and wanted to lure your enemies into the open, you may wish to consider using some DWARF-STYLED BAIT. Another humorus tale found by DerVVulfman, it relays what a stubborn dwarven monk came up with to deal with an oncoming threat.



Games Development
Development Discussion
Its fun to check in with your friends and tell them What's up as a fello RMers. So feel free to post your endeavors like how Kain Nobel did this week. Multiple topics in the works, he's made over a dozen trees, and various other graphics for one game, while simultaneously working on a rock/metal album let alone for his game Belly of the Beast. Meanwhile, Remi-chan made a celebratory video commemorating the number of subscriptions and followers she has online despite the haters, and a revised music video available within her current game, Fantasia.


Upcoming Projects
This week, kyonides did more work on his game-in-progress, The Tricksy Candidate, revealing the list of scripts he is using and a new custom title screen. Not long after, DerVVulfman inquired if animation was in his title screen, sending his approval. While no running background, kyonides is concentrating more upon game icons and poster art.



Material Development
Resources Database
Another fancy blade appeared to show within the HALF KAISER BATTLER PROJECT, this time a thin-bladed rapier with a brass D-guard with a handle of dark walnut. WIll DerVVulfman make any more?

While he doesn't have a resource yet made this week, Eric Matyas is revising a new area of his website so he can continue Building a Massive Library of Free Images for everyone to use. And don't forget that he's open to requests.



Creativity Section
Music and Audio
A new piece with a science-fiction metallic twang was recently composed by Eric Matyas who continues to Share His Original Music and Sounds, the piece entitled "OFF-WORLD INDUSTRY ". And remember, he is open for commissions.


Art and Design
When you enter Remi-chan's Neato Art thread thingie, you will bare witness to a dangerous maiden in red, her flowing platinum hair tied back while locks surrounding her face as she has a hand raised with arcane energy eminating from within. If you wished to see how she illustrated this grand work, she compressed her nearly 7-hour endeavor into a 10 minute speedrun video.



Well, that's it for this week.
