Another game setting primer, this time for Warframe’s baroque sci-fi world.
A far future, almost post-apocalyptic version of the solar system with machinegun-toting technogolem space ninja.
Writeups.org is an encyclopaedia of characters in genre fiction — super-hero comic books, video games, action movies, etc. It offers illustrated, researched profiles. These also include technical data for role-players. If you need a robust understanding of a character’s abilities, personality, history, etc. this is *the* place to be.
An older porn photographer who is also a 1980s guns-toting urban wasteland vigilante caught in an odd situation. You know.
As of February of 2019, this profile got its texts, illustrations and stats polished. It also received photogenic M&M stats.
A traditional — and remarkably dangerous — enemy of the Black Panther.
This profile is filled with stuff about Wakandan history and politics, as M’Baku is a much much more interesting character than most people think. Only a fool underestimates the White Gorilla !
This is the second half of our Man-Ape (M’Baku) character profile, with a link to the first half.
As of February of 2019 this profile was overhauled. It was also cleft, since the explanations about all the Wakanda stuff made it a bit long.
Aggressive urban vigilante with dangerous melee skills and an oversexed attitude.
As of February of 2019, this profile received HD pictures, another round of polishing – and lurid, sticky M&M stats.
It’s time for the first of our thrice-yearly calls for donation for 2019 !
As always, this call doubles as a summary of what’s been happening on writeups.org (and why) since the previous call.
This is DC Comics’ Courtney Whitmore, the future Stargirl, during her early career as the Star-Spangled Kid. It’s a “Year One” sort of writeup.
As of February of 2019, it has been polished a little bit more and received brazen, aggressive, irresponsible M&M stats.
A sample, but atypical, Special Forces trooper of the Galactic Republic during Star Wars’s Old Republic era and from the SWTOR video game. Comes with historical context primers, particularly about the military.
As of February of 2019, this profile was revised for style and concision, M&M-ified, and split in two to make certain it’s not too long to read in one sitting.
This is the second half for our sample, fleshed out Old Republic Special Operations Trooper in what is now the Star Wars Legends continuity. With a link to part #1.
This pair of profiles is also the one with the primer about the Old Republic era, useful for many of our Star Wars profiles.
This is where our chronological series of profiles for Mockingbird (Dr. Barbara “Bobbi” Morse) starts.
So, her early 1970s Ka-Zar (lord of the jungle !) material with the bright red rompers. At this point she’s not Mockingbird yet.
From Warren Ellis’ Global Frequency story “Big Wheel”, an elite ad-hoc commando tasked with an unenviable and desperate task.
Neat example of high-end operatives with specialised skills and some near-future technology.
One of the most famous characters in the Soul Calibur fighting video games. Magical whip-sword, martial arts, alchemy.
As of January of 2019, this profile was rewritten, updated, upgraded. Generally, we’ve made it more well-rounded.
A made-up heroic fantasy character, inspired by minor Heretic/Hexen-like video game Ziggurat.
Young legless alchemist with a thousand grudges, and a magical arsenal. As the song goes, odds are she won’t live to see tomorrow.
One of ’em video game guides we occasionally do during our breaks. Warframe has a reputation for being hard to learn and… yeah, it’s not unearned.
So here’s a “what I wish I knew when I started” space guide.
Humble Bundle is now offering a Dynamite Comics bundle of digital comics, starting at $1. It has many, many of the geeky things. Check the post for a partial list of stuff (because listing everything that’s in the bundle was too long).
This continues our huge chronological series about Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel, aka Ms. Marvel). This covers her early Warbird career, from 1998 to 2000.
As of February of 2019, this profile was entirely redone. New airframe, new avionics, new engine, new nose emblem, etc..
One of our occasional video gaming guides, since I have to take breathers at some points…
This one is about using free Windows speech recognition software to input commands whilst playing video games. This is primarily useful for persons with low or diminished manual dexterity.
As of January of 2019, wrote an addendum about using this in a shooter (namely Warframe).
