Well, here I am, a few days late and a dollar or so short–but, I am here, and that counts for something. It’s been an adventure fighting the inky beast, but guess what? It turns out that the ol’ beasty is actually pretty rad, and instead of fighting them, I should have just been like, totally embracing this inky fiend all along, you know? Anyway, all’s well that ends well, so with a cramped up drawing hand, and stars in my eyes, I can finally close this chapter of my sketchbook with a sense of pride.

BLP had an amazing time running our game Stars Fall Up with folks who attended Jiffycon this past weekend! A huge thanks to all who showed up and hung out with us. Seeing people be excited about the game makes us 1020% more excited about it as well, and personally speaking, it makes me want to keep making supplements for the game.
So here’s our first offering. Below you’ll find six pre-generated character that we used at Jiffycon for our SFU session. They’re totally free to use and remix however you feel like, so go nuts. The character templates are purposely vague to allow for a great amount of customization from players, while not having to fret over coming up ideas for backgrounds and #tags.
As it would turn out, even the best laid plans have their way of going awry. You might recall that in last week’s Inktober Round-Up, I set a goal for myself this year: stick to a particular theme for each week of the challenge. I had intended to warm up with a few days of fun and fluffy fan-art before diving into a week full of witches, spooks, specters, and things that go bump in the night. This worked…for a few days. As my girl Emily Dickinson once said, “The heart wants what it wants”, and much to nobody’s surprise, my fragile little heart burns bright with an ardent nerd-fire that has yet to be quelled. So here I am– a few days later than anticipated– proudly delivering another hot batch of fan-fueled Inktober magic:
People of the internet rejoice: Inktober has been off to a great start! Friends near and far have been hard at work, pressing that pen to page every day, getting one step closer to the finish line! “But what’s drawing so much inspiration from these people?”, you might ask. Well, truly awful puns aside, that’s a great question. The answers you get will differ from artist to artist. Some folks like to stick to the official list. Some folks will follow alternate lists, much like this one I posted last week. Then, there are folks like myself, who, despite their best intentions, are a bit all over the place. This year, I’ve decided to (more or less) stick to a particular theme for each week of Inktober. This week’s theme has been “Fanart”, with a more specific focus on anime and manga series that have wormed their way into my heart.
Are you interested in Things?
Things are pretty great, sometimes. If you’re ready for them.
And what about Stuff?
Stuff sometimes comes in its fancy clothes, dressed up and telling others to call itself Content.
Content introduces you to its chummy friends- Posts, Media, Artwork, Projects and Interesting Internet Links.
They all have an inflated sense of self-importance, but maybe you will still enjoy their company.
Anyway, have a business card. It has Business Words on it. We chose the best Business Words to promote obtuse, obfuscating values like Product Aggregation, User Content Appreciation, or Social Media Retro-Vlogging.
Google said those are Popular Words on the Internet right now.
So the Point is, if at this point we have determined whether or not you are interested in Things, you should know that we here at this Website have a plethora of Things in many Colors and Frequencies to entice you with.
