The username comes from playing as the Balseraphs
from Fall from Heaven
, for the record.
Contributor page. Not much right now. Fan of (among things I can immediately think of) Discworld
, Doctor Who
, Stargate SG-1
, A Song of Ice and Fire
, Planescape: Torment
, No More Heroes
, Dwarf Fortress
, Neverwinter Nights 2
, Mass Effect
, Civilization V
, the Borderlands
series, and various random freeware indie games, because I'm a cheap bastard. Much of the Fall from Heaven
page is my doing. I use and abuse Pot Holes
and em dashes, listen to Heavy Metal
, and have a legion of Guilty Pleasures
I'm white, heterosexual, male, and a lapsed Freemasons: an excellent recipe for the Lawful Neutral
alignment. But for the most part, that means "don't be obnoxiously 'zany'
and we're good." Your life and how you live it are not my problem. Used to be Chaotic Neutral
, with delusions of being Chaotic Good
, though that rapidly proved dull
and not especially productive.
Never take any criticism I level against you too hard: if I criticize you, it means you strike me as competent enough to be worth sitting down and writing criticism for. And of course, I'm as open to being criticized as I am to give it — flawed human beings can better recognize flaws in one another than themselves, and we all have plenty to learn.
While you're here, do yourself a favor. I really fucking hate Purple Prose
, but I'm not going to rant about it. Instead, I'll leave a link to George Orwell
's Politics and the English Language
My current and only writing project is a little Science Fantasy
something I'm tentatively calling
the Tales of a Starless Sky. To give a painfully oversimplified summary, it involves three families of essentially ordinary people and a crippled, chatty Eldritch Abomination
doing their best to outwit and overthrow a fascist memory-eating god-king from another world whose claims of divinity are horrifyingly accurate. There's also an Ambiguously Evil Mega Corp.
. And Seinfeldian Conversations
. I'm not gonna start a trope list or anything, though: when I get published (in some form
) I'll be able to use a trope page as proof of recognition and a source for feedback.
Not much else to say, really: I'll let my wiki edits and forum posts speak for me.
Feel free to comment/vandalize below.

- Hello. I see that you are a Freemason. You must then be associated in some capacity with the Freemasonic conspiracy faction to exert your organization's secret control over America. I am a representative of the United Nations conspiracy faction that seeks to establish a global one-world government in the New World Order. I suspect that our two organizations have much to gain by working together. To that end I wish to arrange talks between the leaders of both our organizations in the hope that we might meet some mutual agreement or alliance. The United Nations hides behind a mask of impotence to disguise it's true motives, and most Americans believe that the Freemasons are nothing but a fraternal organization and charitable advocacy group. With our combined ties in America and Europe, the eventual goal of total planetary domination would be all but guaranteed. As for the terms and finer points of this potential arrangement, they are yet to be determined. However, we have particular interest in the possibility of using your Lodges as safe-houses for our special operations teams, or as servicing stations for our black helicopters that are used to deploy and retrieve those teams. You may present what you might want in return, and it will be decided whether the arrangement is acceptable by the Secretary General. I await your reply. - Gault
