12/04/08 - Checking In
Can you believe it's already December? Pretty soon, we'll all be messing up our checks by righting "08" still. Damn you, date keeping! Anyhoo, matching the season, there's a new splash picture. It's eeriely similar to the '07 one, unintentionally. More art, mostly pertaining to Althanas, to come... once I remember to save it.
11/23/08 - Encyclopedia Brit-Dump-ica
I've had stuff laying around since September that needed to go up, and I finally did it. In other news, I finally took down the constant noting of Not Quite Heroes and replaced it with Ask the Kirby Gurus. If I'm going to be doing that near daily, I might as well spread the word.
11/19/08 - Missed Month
Did I miss a month? Ack, how terrible. Sorry about that, folks. I've been busy at Rainbow Resort and mending a fractured elbow. In the meanwhile, I have a dump of Encyclopedia entries ready to go, which were actually made at the last update, but for actual updates, I've started drawing things again. See? That makes up for things, right? ...
09/20/08 - Maybe
I have to get off my lazy ass and start back on the Encyclopedia. In the meanwhile, here's a new splash picture. How the two relate? No clue!
09/08/08 - Grave Digging
For reasons beyond my knowledge, I started sorting through some old text files of mine and uncovered a lot of half written and forgotten about pieces of literature. Thing is, they are all from December 2005 at the latest. That's three whole damn years old! Needless to say, I couldn't remember what any of them exactly were, re-read them, liked them (obviously) more than I did when I first made them, and decided to chuck them up on the side. Find all six of the additions in Without An End, including Boundless Black Beyond and Waste Land.
09/05/08 - Busting Out
Okay, so nothing is really busting, popping, or in any way spiffy. I've updated more pages for Barrack Breaker, if anyone cares. It's sad that it's about all I've done for this site in so long. You see, for the past month, I've been doing a daily feature at Rainbow Resort, still. I at least know five people care about what I do over there. Here, that number is questionable. Anyhoo, you should check it out. It's basically like ten or so mini-rants a day.
08/11/08 - Breaking In
Coming at you is the latest version of Barrack Breakers, now with a complete roster of seven regular knights, at least twelve bonus character, a shop feature to refuel and empower your warriors, and 20+ levels to destroy. I've also updated the information pages to include the newly added pieces.
08/02/08 - Crickets & Pods
Well, I sure missed a lot of stuff. I've been leaking out the Encyclopedia still, although slowly. I've pulled out a piece of artwork, too. I'm still drawing, but most of it just appears at Rainbow Resort where no one cares about it. That aside, do you know what happened one year ago? Squish Pod was released.
It strikes me as odd that in one year I went from being unemployed to starting and quitting one job in place of another and now residing in Michigan. But that's boring. Squish Pod! Even though I still want to more fully bang out Barrack Breakers, or Breaker Knights as I now prefer to call it to not many anyone think I'm misspelling a presidential candidates name, I've also begun working on a re-vamp of the classic. Taking what worked, shooting and fighting bosses, I've effectively cut out the rest of the game. No levels, just rooms. Squish dodges foes and makes it to the four corners of a lunar labrynth to defeat a boss. Then, it's off to face the big bad and win the game. Shorter, more replay value, and laced with candy (*not really). So, that's my announcement for its birthday of sorts. Nothin' else.
07/08/08 - Onward Still
More of the Encyclopedia has been issued, although not much more. The draining weekend, well, drained me. It's still progressing, however. Plus, with a rarely seen Huh?, it's an update to my art gallery. Ain't that wonky?
06/29/08 - Another Dump
Boy, that sure seems inappropirate. Regardless, another batch of encyclopedia entries was spilled forth today. I've scanned the next batch already, so they just need primed, primped, and printed before posting. If anyone cares about any of this, I'd be surprised.
06/22/08 - Filing
So, let's see here. Am I adding more to the Encyclopedia? Yep. Pictures and entries are added and growing. I had twenty some to go through, so those will get up eventually. I'm trying to keep up the flow here while also managing junk over at Rainbow Resort. Now, by "manage", I just mean change every single page so it no longer sucks in the HTML department, so I guess that makes it an abbreviated way of saying "managing it to not cause internet fires". Yesh. Ever take a look at the coding there? It makes the Web Gods weep cybernetic tears. ... of bytes, I guess?
06/10/08 - Encyclopedia Bimblesnaffica
What's that, imaginary voice in my head? The new and improved Encyclopedia Bimblesnaff has been revealed? What? It's been out on the site for about a week or two now just without advertisement? Well, good thing it wasn't mentioned before, 'cuz now it's out in "full" force. I say such as there's hardly any articles for it. There are, however, a bunch of shiny pictures. I filled up a whole page of the buggers, and most all of them have had pages written for them. Once that lot is done, it's on to another, then another, and another until all five-hundred are done with. Let's see how I keep up.
06/04/08 - New Year, Same Lair
And so the Lair kicks off a new year of webbing just like it kicked off the new calendar year: late. I really didn't want to debut Barrack Breaker in a semi-incomplete manner, but, oh well. There it is, folks. If anyone gives two craps about it, I'll work more on it. But, much like its predecessor, Squish Pod, I'm sure it'll pass into obscurity until retroactively passed in pre-existing series of mine. That, really, is the fate of all things I create.
Speaking of creation, that's the next subject of topic... Yeah, sense. The new project of mine is relaunching, retooling, and completing the Encyclopedia Bimblesnaff, with all entries and pictures. With five-hundred plus articles that I know of that need made, it'll be quite the feat.
05/30/08 - Nine Years of This?
That's right, folks. Nine years. Nine years of this? What a waste of time, both mine and yours. Aside from the shiny new and obscene splash picture, there's been some updates to the Barrack Breaker pages to include more information. Also, the game file has been updated. A "full" release should be available soon after which it'll never be touched again. I'm looking at you, Squish Pod!
05/28/08 - Preparation For The Big Oh-Nine
As the title says, the bigt (and lackluster) ninth year of the Lair is almost here. To celebrate, a lot of non-important things are being done. For one, look at Lou Carcolh, the French Snail monster soon to be in Battling Dragons at RE. If that ain't racist, I don't know what is. Expect it to be adoptable soon as well as more things here, too, like... crap!
Update for the day (end of), a new rant was chucked out so that all the updates would be May'd. It's about hair.
05/17/08 - Not Well At All
Well, things sure turned sour since last I came around. For one thing, yeesh, what have I done for half a year? Those updates are all so stale. To add to that staleness, the big BAM! anniversary project has been "delayed". It beign PHP and me lacking an easy net source currently, I can't really develop the system. To make up for that, I've been working a lot off line on Barrack Breaker, which can be seen hyped in the bar topper. This, now, will be the big oh-nine party item (the game, not the picture), so if you hated it before... *sniff* why? Additionally, I've ported over Rumbl-o-Rama: Year End Blow Out to this site. If you didn't read it before, why not take a crack at it?
04/21/08 - Pop, Bang, BAM!
More than just onomatopoeia, or at least that holds true for the last one. I've finally farted out some sort of coded scripting functions to give this site some sort of processing power. It is the B.A.M.: Bimblesnaff Access Manager. What does it do? Well, basically nothing right now. You sign up and leave crummy messages on a low grade bulletin board. However, that's the only released functionality since it's far in its infancy. In the works right now is a player versus player battle game based on Squish Pod, which is bound to be full of problems. But that's later, right now, should you feel like it, sign up for a BAM and get some bonus BAM Points (affectionately and incorrectly dubbed "!Pts"). What do they do? About as much as the BAM accounts right now. Hey, it's not like it takes anything but... a minute, maybe? I must warn you, you won't be getting it back, but you you've probably already wasted enough time reading this spiel. So, what's one more?
04/02/08 - Plop 'n' Flop
More minimum standards of up keep. I've tossed up a joke picture done up for April Fools' Day. It's completely out of my element as it's a bunch of animesque themed Magical Girls, which, as you should know, ain't quite my boat-float. On other news, I've junked out some PHP code to use for this site. What, exactly, function it'll serve is to be determined. If you don't care, don't worry. Neither do I.
03/26/08 - Slow & Low
A bit dry as of late, I'd hate to admit. Coming at ya is another dose of Barrack Breaker information, this time dealing with the obstacles and items found in the game.
03/5/08 - Quite the Leap
Was that only suppose to be Leap Day? Looks like the entire month of February passed by without any stated updates, although stuff still happened. An enormous picture was "completed", the When Group Pictures Collide! that clashed the forum personas of Reality's End against my other on-line haunt, Kirby's Rainbow Resort. In addition to that, to make up for the lack of showing stuff, I present to you: Barrack Breaker: Reverse Castle Defense. I've been working on this for some many months now. It is a platformer developed on Game Maker 7.0 in which you take an army of knights through to destroy a castle. It's still in beta but is fully playable. I've chucked up the basics for the game's page as well.
01/26/08 - Pen & Keyboard
Writing and typing are so nicely meshed together... right? Well, it sure seems it, 'cuz I'm tapping up a storm with yet another on-line writing rant. If this trend keeps up, I might have to segregate them from the regular rant area and file them under educational. This edition has be taking a bite outta the crime known as RPs.
01/16/08 - No Reason
A new splash and bar pic for next to no reason outside of the fact that I needed to replace the holiday picture. Anything else? No. Anything in the works? Still yes. Any of it coming out soon? ... I'll say yes. Hey, at least now the Most Recent only goes back to last month.
01/12/08 - Off Like a Dud Rocket
Not the fast paced start to a year that I would have hoped. Once again, everything is tied up in process and isn't getting out to the site. I've been doing a lot of writing at RE and, surprising, KRR as of late as well as drawing a lot for both sites. I'm in the middle of a gigantic group picture between the two (literally, it's a battle 'twixt them), but I can't release that until its done. Rumbl-o-Rama: Year End Blow Out got finished and can probably be ported over soon. I'm still working on the second phase of the RoR history file. What is finished, though, is a strange, strange rant I wrote about Mary Sues. Yeah, not exactly my crazed banter, but it'll do, pig. Note: I assume that only porcine visitors come to my site anymore.
01/01/08 - Pulled It Off
Not only was I able to compile a brief and shoddy history of the Rumbl-o-Rama and its inspiration, but now the "clean" version of RoR: Square Rooted is stashed on this site! Enjoy it with (almost) no spelling errors or crappy grammar. Also, I chucked a picture up to my gallery. It sucks, but if you consider the amount of time it took (months, two, I think), it really sucks.
