Follow Me On Tumblr!

As great as DeviantArt is, I'm primarily active on tumblr. My blog Dragon with Goggles is a source of tips, tricks and art for tabletop role-playing games such as Pathfinder or Dungeons and Dragons. Mixed in are Magic: The Gathering posts (especially around spoiler season for a new block) and general funny internet humor, as well as articles harboring equality and gender awareness/acceptance. If these things appeal to you at all, check me out here!

I am the resident dabbler-of-sorts of a small down in Indiana. Once, I traversed the crowded streets of Metro-Atlanta, but have since dispersed to a life in the north much better suited for my tastes. It is here I spend my days working as an automation operator with a wonderful wife by my side. Currently I casually work with digital art, usually scenery or symbolography, though I consider my strength to be in writing.

One of my greatest hobbies is spending time with friends and family around the game table, creating stories through the avenues of Pathfinder and similar games. While I enjoy all aspects of hosting and playing such games, I usually find myself hosting more than playing, and thus have recently taken it upon myself to record the ideas that come forth when crafting the worlds and scenarios for my friends to take part in. These stories and ideas have accumulated into a project that I am breathing life into, the Realms of Eos (ee-ohs), a broad and diverse world that features a vast array of places for adventure, as well as new cosmic beings known as Primordials and Aspects who can be chosen by players in lieu of a traditional deity.

Artwork and literature pertaining to Eos will likely be the features of my time here, so if that interests you at all, keep a look out!

I bid you a joyful farewell, and please, do enjoy yourself whilst you rest here in my little corner of the unknowably vast web.

Cheers,

William, a.k.a. "Goggles"

It's been a crazy few months. I can't believe everything that was happened all came and went so fast! Even now I'm still kinda reeling from it all; some things have yet to wind down, and others are just now beginning!

Now, to get some of that heavy-laden ambiguity out of the way, I was engaged to the love of my life, Uptownchic, since last November. Let's take a look at everything that's happened since then.

November '15: Got officially engaged, made significant plans to stop college midway and move elsewhere when I had only lived at home my whole life
December '15: Finished my last semester of college for now, moved from Georgia to Indiana to be with my love
January '16: Got a job at a long-term care pharmacy as a floor technician, largely on my own at this point
March '16: Me and my love got her mom to play Pathfinder with us. She's a dwarf paladin, and she's awesome.
July '16: Me and my love both got promoted, and she's in a managerial position now!
September '16: We got an apartment of our own AND WE GOT MARRIED!
October '16: Birthday, Pathfinder campaign coming to fruition, chaos at work, now!

So that's a pretty good idea of how the past year has been going, I've moved twice after having not moved ever, got married, etc. An incredibly exciting and happy time, to be sure! Amidst a lot of this I've been writing little short stories as inspiration comes, mostly on my phone, so there might be one or two that I haven't submitted yet. I'll get around to it eventually. That being said, with the advent of my most recent Pathfinder campaign, I'll be drawing up some world/regional maps, so stay tuned for those!

Until next time, peace!

The Realm of Eos: Map
To get some of my ideas out of my head and down on paper, I've started on a map of the Realm of Eos. Thus far there are six major regions, though doubtless more will come along in time. Since the current campaign is an exploratory game to discover the secrets of the Lost Continent, that realm is warped and unknown- can't be giving away spoilers already, can I? Though, for those of you reading this that are currently in the Miziro campaign, THERE ARE POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

From left to right, here are the continents shown:
- Dragonvale, farthest left: Ages ago, a war raged between the mortal races and the dragons, and while the beasts of the sky could undoubtedly crush the land-dwellers, they decided instead to leave the quarreling masses to their own devices and settle elsewhere. Named by the crew that discovered the land in recent years, Dragonvale has been home to all manner of dragons; the metallic dragons typically staying to the south, while the chromatic dragons make their home in the north. The port town of Merconia is the only notable city that the mortal people have been allowed to be in contact with thus far.
- Kaladon, center left: The oldest continent by their own historical records, Kaladon was the cradle of early civilization and a symbol of peace for all the races of the world before the war against the dragons. Ever since, it has been a realm of prejudice and strife. The colossal city-nation of Kaladonia boasts the largest population in the world, as well as a clerical oligarchy of followers of the Interlocking Path, a religious way guided by four gods of goodness and law. It is no secret to outsiders, however, that the ardent Kaladonites are heavily suspicious of those beyond the towering walls of their city. Those who did not agree with the strictness and shallow thinking of the city-dwellers turned to the Outer Wilds (not all of them by choice). The Wilds are home to countless roaming nomadic tribes, many of which practice magic in some capacity or another. In the center of the continent lies the Worldspine, a massive trail of spire-like mountains that reach highest in the world, the tallest peaks disappearing above the clouds. The Deep Wilds stretches below the Worldspine, a brutal and savage land inhabited by hostile creatures and the occasional band of orcs.
- The Glacierlands, top: After the defeat of the Chaos Primordial, much of the Glacierlands returned from its solid frozen state to a lush highland-scape of frigid but habitable hills, beautiful tundras and icy archipelagos. Dwarves hailing from the frozen north have skill not in cutting stone, but shaping ice as they see fit. The palace at the capitol, Icebreaker Citadel, remains frozen solid all months of the year, though much of the rest of the city is a combination of sculpted ice and stone structures.
- The Lost Continent, center right: Little is known about this mysterious continent that sprung into existence seemingly overnight. Led by Isabella Lavender of Alvarion, the nations agreed that none shall lay claim to this new and strange land, lest conflict escalate into global war. Scores of adventurers now travel to this unknown land in hopes to unravel its mystery.
- The Drowning Isles, bottom right: These god-forsaken spits of land were likely once normal tropical islands, but now are mostly bogs and moors, as though the sea hopes to cover them up and act as though they never existed. Home to covens of hags and all manner of deplorable filth-writhing abominations, few would ever travel to these lands with any aim other than to wipe them off the map. Its single city, Slaughterport, is a towering metropolis of driftwood and broken ships. Rogues, pirates, cheaters, bandits, any kind of scum of the earth is all that winds up in Slaughterport- and more often than not, with a dagger in their back.
- Brutera, right: Brutera is a continent most diverse, with distinct northern and southern portions. In the north sits the proud and luminous Alvarion, a kingdom of hope and power led by ex-adventurers. The people of Alvarion are kind and cheerful, many still remembering the terrible reign of the Shadow King many years ago and reveling in their current state of prosperity. Otherworldly creatures can find refuge in Alvarion, as the people are not quick to judge based on looks. Fey fill their forests and magical crystals power everyday tasks. The mighty Castle Lavender floats in the sky above a bustling city, a massive crystal keeping it in the air as well as lighting the town by night. In the south, the old empire of Miziro stands tall with its long tales of peace and intricate customs. A puppet king under a dark master was recently purged from the throne, and now a loyal and gentle Empress leads the people. Amidst the swirling islands off the southeastern coast sits the magnificent Imperial City, the second oldest city in the world if Kaladon is to be considered. Between the two great nations sits a massive desolate wasteland known as the Endless Desert, though in recent years a fledgling nation has arisen from the dust and reestablished a land route through the sands. The nation has taken the name of its ancient predecessor, Vataskum, and its capitol of Epicentia is a place of beauty among devastation, scorched black sands leading into a glass plateau surrounding the main spire-structure of the city.

Cheers!
