This thing started as a one-off gag doodle out of boredom, but then I figured why the heck not. Forward momentum, if other MSPAforumgoers can do it, I can do it, profuse apologies to Lois McMaster Bujold, etc. Here goes...
As in a big table & map with battle pieces and what not.
HOMESTRUCK. (Updated as of May 26). PKMN in that sig, if you would like to see them.
-------- The Knight of Heart keeps his Flush Red Helmet on and his Sharp, Crimson Sword beside him. His Dark Vile Enemies are cautious of his Steady and Unweilding Might and his Unawakened Allies await his Quick and Hasty Arrival. For the Knight of Heart brings Beautiful and Passionate Revival to the Cold and Grey Land. His Powerful Compassion and Broad Soul bring back the world's Bright Colors and Meaningful Music. The Many and Countles Consorts are no longer Ghastly Grey Ghouls. Each Compulsively and Deliberatly Celebrates in Great Joy and Delight of their Wonderful World now Reborn. No longer must they Mourn For the Black Burnt Ashes of the Dead. No longer must the Consorts mourn.
A quest of Mages, Monks and Knights and sometimes Sparks. A quest of Sapce, Time, and Heart and sometimes Breath. A quest to find oneself, others, and the balance of all things. In Vallys of Consideration, Dreams, and Generosity in Lands of Universes and Frogs, Cycles and Death, Themes and Significations, and sometimes Breezes and Wings. In those places there is always something to create, restart, restore, or sometimes discover. A quest that always is centered around You.
You are the end and then you are the beginning. Your die to become anew. Your must continue the cycle or the world will grow old. Be the unending cycle, for your life is death, and death is your life. You must be Apart from the living, Continue searching for the new worlds, Guide the many souls through life, Tame the forces that want to defeat you, and with Unending viturtue stand as the Knight to protect the Hearts of the souls that follow your path. Continue your cycle or all will fall to chaos.

This paint project created tiger was made from scratch with only the pencil tool and a bunch of clicking.
Actuall I'm very intersted in a Steampunk idea.
SteamStuck (1-4), an rp, will commence after HomeSTRUCK disk 3.
You briefly ponder the ABSOLUTE DISASTER that was the obstacle course portion of the entry exam. Your running partner was a TOTAL DOUCHEBAG named KOSTOLITZ, who got on your nerves and goaded you into pushing it when you should have been playing it safe with your BRITTLE BONES.
Has anyone ever mentioned what a bad idea it is to jump off a FIVE METER HIGH WALL with a condition like yours?
>MV: Tell him to ready the war games.
Your BODYGUARD considers this an EXCELLENT IDEA. Well... anything that keeps you in one place for a couple hours is an EXCELLENT IDEA.
> Begin with the traditional move exchanges that almost every game starts with.
You and the ARMSMAN settle into familiar old routine. You're not sure who's humoring whom with this distraction - aside from being REALLY FOGGED UP on PAINKILLERS for your legs, this game hasn't held any challenge for you since you were a kid.
> Start delivering witty banter with life lessons oddly appropriate to the moves being made in the game.
You find yourself beginning to prattle about how board games are terrible for teaching real strategy. Two guys shoving brainless plastic pieces around a map according to a set of rules can never replicate the hundreds of little things that really shape the outcomes of wars. The ARMSMAN, not being the conversational type, just nods occasionally and utters monosyllabic noises of assent.
You also note with dry amusement that horse cavalry hasn't been practical since the days of your GRANDFATHER, GENERAL COUNT PIOTR VORKOSIGAN...
Speaking of the COUNT your GRANDFATHER, has anyone told him yet about how spectacularly you blew everything on the OBSTACLE COURSE?
