Good evening, vampire hunters.
My hands have been incredibly full this past month, but I’m at a good stopping point to post a sneak peek and a short detour through the past so you don’t think we’ve stopped working on the games.
First, we’ll cover our Valentine’s Day/St. Patrick’s Day crossover campaign. Have you been wondering why DraKill wasn’t with Frederick and the others in the castle hall on my birthday? Welllll, this is the part where it gets unnerving. He ended up getting lost and his curiosity led him to Bathory Wing. There, the morally ambiguous Lilith and her clique of tempting sirens were waiting for him. DraKill immediately fell head-over-heels for Lilith and given her desire to be in control, she’ll do whatever she can to keep him begging to stay.
Do you wish to find out what happens next?
Then you’ll have to sit tight for the next update on the team’s progress. Keep in mind the fourth prototype episode is still in the works. ;)
Meanwhile, I found a photo of these poison dart frogs I snapped from six years during a trip to the Berkshire Museum. Colorful, aren’t they? :O
Make no mistake. The poison dart frogs have such exotic and bright colors to warn predators not to consume them lest the toxins on their skin will kill them after ten minutes of physical contact. For those who know me in real life, I love to catch frogs in the summers and release them before I go for a swim. Handling these creatures cause me to feel like that I have a higher purpose so I’m gentle with them, but I wouldn’t be foolish enough to catch a poison dart frog with bare hands. I’d be safer handling them with protective gloves. ^_^
A bit of trivia about the world of Heliotrope Journey that is related to that throwback photo is that witches and wizards that practice poison magic at a beginner’s level are capable of enchanting their skin to be just as toxic as these frogs. That spell is intended to deter harassment and it serves as a protective measure against assault. Michaela, several scholars that study the Dark Lord, Countess Carmilla Karnstein, Philoctetes Dinu, handfuls of Dracul Cultists, and countless sorcerers in the Anura Duchy are notable practitioners of this spell. Unlike poison dart frogs, they can kill you when you least expect it if their skin touches yours, but look on the bright side. A poison dart frog is honest about notifying their predators that they may be their last meal if they’re naïve enough to take a bite.

Cartoony self portrait from a few months ago when I started my first semester at art school. I was pretty surprised that I hadn’t drawn myself with a mask until that point!
