As with every year, we’re skipping one of our thrice-monthly updates. The one that would have straddled late December and early January.

So if you’re on the Gregorian, y’all have a happy (or at least not too grossly damaging) new year in the meantime.

That’s it, that’s the post.

The Silver Age Atom (Ray Palmer) from the very beginning up to Blackest Night inclusive.

As of December of 2020, this entry was split in two parts. This may seem like a small thing, but it helps slower readers not shrink away from long texts.

A rather big and muscled profile for a barbarian warrior of the same ilk, who’s appeared in his own series and beyond over the decades.

This is one of our DC Implosion writeups.

As of December of 2020, this enormous entry was split into manageable parts. And received a round of rewriting, since it was rather old.

A young and redoubtable Amazon and Gorgon officer. She’s cool, in more ways than one.

Delphyne primarily appeared in Marvel’s Hercules and Amadeus Cho stories.

First version of a review of the tools we’ve used to create character portraits on writeups.org (for original characters, or those without usable visuals). Mostly it’s stuff from video games, though most of it is free or real cheap.

Since creating portraits or full-body models of original characters isn’t a rare need among various sorts of role-players.

This article is updated from time to time. See its table of content.

A big, heavily illustrated article about rifles, shotguns, submachineguns, etc. in fiction. So that’s useful to have.

This content used to be presented in the same article as Weapons Locker – Modern firearms – Chapter #2 – Small Arms, part 1. But the article was getting too big and with too many photos for slow connections and less powerful devices, so it’s better to cleave it in two.

Recent additions:
— Large-bore air rifle
— Drum-fed shotgun
— Badass tommy gun
— Badass Mosin-Nagant
— All-Inclusive Assault Carbine
— Integrally Suppressed Assault Carbine
— Four-barrelled combination gun
— Microwave gun
— Rimfire submachinegun
