Greetings, habitués of the Wandering Shop. As Mick Jagger likes to sing, "Please allow me to #introduce myself…"
I'm the #author / #illustrator of a tabletop role-playing game (#TTRPG) who enjoys posting the odd pencil #sketch, #ink outline, or full-#color #illustration that eventually became #art for the game —plus a few that never made it in.
Émigré from another instance.
Just a little flying robot, the final full #color #illustration from the original pencil sketch (https://wandering.shop/@tenthousandworlds/105335364563180459) and later ink outline (https://wandering.shop/@tenthousandworlds/105374410135245375).
La table périodique des éléments la plus connue a été créée par Mendeleïev en 1869, mais d'autres "tables" ont été créées depuis. Elles permettent de rendre compte de certaines similitudes entre éléments qu'il n'est pas possible de rendre avec la table habituelle. Souvent cela est fait en abandonnant la structure "rigide" d'un tableau et je trouve ça joli.
Ci-dessous la table périodique des éléments de Hyde (1975) et celle de Benfey (1964)
I’m starting to hope that humanity may be turning the corner.
Gandalf / Magneto just got his first dose of the #COVID-19 vaccine.

Now I've discovered that they're running a #kickstarter to make more stories set in this world. Yes please. I pitched in as a present to myself.
"Jones grew up learning there were some things one simply didn’t ask in the Midnight Cabaret, such as how a trick really worked, a performer’s home town, and what Uncle Ernie did on his nights off that sometimes brought him home with bloody knuckles…"
Morris Jones the #magician, AKA "Mojo", has been updated to version 1.5 and got a bit more of a background.
As always, this title is free. Enjoy.
"The Leviathan Chronicles", a #podcast which I feared lost after a long silence, is back for a third season!
This thousand-year saga is replete with super-science & action, but I also like its global cast of complicated characters who create well-intentioned messes while fighting to do the right thing. Sides shift, minds change, lines get crossed, for understandable reasons.
Plus the audio is stellar.
So, big fan, big happy.
What happens when the greatest illusion ever performed by the magician who raised you was ... his own life?
“Jinx” has been updated to be compatible with Ten Thousand Worlds version 1.5, and she gets a more detailed origin story.
