    Roadmap

    Submitted 1.06 to the asset store today. It should be up in a day or two. This was a huge update under the hood. Let's go through the changes. Release Candidate 1.06 Change List Previously, the physics systems were separated for player controller actions and movement-specific actions. This caused problems for hero objects with player controllers that needed to also process movement-specific actions. This has been fixed. All 3D player controllers use the same physics engine that all 3D movement actions use. All 2D player controllers use the same physics engine that all 2D movement actions use. You can now blend movement actions with your player controller actions. To test the new system, try adding a Jump action to a hero object that also has a player controller on it. Have the hero object jump when the spacebar is pressed to see how it works. I made some significant modifications to the 2D player controllers and movement system. 2D actions have been split into 2D Platformer and 2D RPG sections. 2D Platformer contains actions specifically for platformer-style games like Terraria with 2 directional movement and gravity. 2D RPG contains actions specifically for top-down rogue-style games with 4 or 8-directional movement. I've also reorganized the sample games so that you can see how to use player controllers for these types of games. Small, but significant fixes: You no longer need to Set Jump Surfaces action before you use the Jump action. It should just work now. We've fixed the model display problem in the State window in Unity 2017 with the help of the Unity team. This was a rather longer-than expected release cycle due to the refactoring of the entire HeroKit movement system. Future release cycles should not take as long. What's next? We're going to start building out the RPG system for HeroKit, update our 2D documentation on the site, and create a few of your must requested custom actions (color picker, Opsive's third-person controller, Opsive's UFPS controller).

    So I recently got a program for sprite design specifically designed for RPG Maker programs and because I am Gyendal obsessed I decided to try out headset design and make Gyendal headsets since there weren't any in the game. {so sad} The first like is his vampire version {obviously lol} and the one below is him after being turned human. I operate on the headcannon that his eyes as a human are green since his eyes during the Spook masquerade and if I remember correctly his actual Gyendal human sprite also has green eyes. I used the RPG Maker MV headsets to make Gyendal since I like them better then the VX Ace sooooo

    Who is Mu11berry's favoite druid? Hmmmm, hmmmm, whoooo could it beeee? Oh yeah, maybe, the purple one??? XD But actually, besides just how pretty and sparkly Daena is, I love the idea of wisdom being something the Oracle felt needed to be protected. Wisdom is so often overlooked, or confused with knowledge, or otherwise defamed or devalued, but a wise person can do so much good in the world. Also, RhenxDameon headcanons, okay~ The truth is a big part of their story and you need a little bit of wisdom to discover the truth. Okay I'm fine now, I will stop being sentimental. Maybe. I based her robe design on her sprite, but I changed it up a little just for fun. ("Fun..." Yeah, that's what it's called). Lastly, while making this I realized she lives in the Moon Temple, and the sign thingy over her treasury is a moon, and the moon has nothing to do with wisdom that I know of but it does have to do with darkness. *coughRashnucough* So maybe I ship it a little >.> So yes, here is my entry for day 3 of @Queen-of-Ice101's challenge. I originally wanted to do Talia or Dameon but I realized I will be drawing them for lots of other days, and also this way I have more options for who in tarnation to draw for the next day XD XD (but really how do I choose T.T)

    New Year!!

    Happy New Year everyone! I’m on Pacific time, too, so we have a few hours to go. My resolution is to get at least one if my old games converted to Unity, create an RPG Maker like editor for HeroKit, and to take my workouts to the next level. Wishing you all a great 2018!

    All of the 2D and 3D movements have been refactored so that the physics in each action blends together with the others. You'll be able to use player controllers with special movements smoothly soon. The rest of this week is dedicated to cleaning up code and deep testing. I should have another build uploaded to the Unity store this weekend. There will be one more 2D build after this one that will include tutorials and a site documentation update.

    Goodday!

    Heya! I'm not exactly new, not exactly old, except kinda? I'll explain later but first of all, I'm PiPeter, and i started following Aveyond when i was 12 (6 years ago, darn i feel old). One of my dad's friends was a massive keyboard warrior and got me introduced to forums when i was 10 , and then eventually another friend of his introduced me to Aveyond 2. To be honest, i was AMAZED by the amount of english i couldn't read. However, I loved the game. It was visually appealing, and child me really liked the gameplay as it was my first RPG maker game. I did get stuck however at one point: The Beast's lair. Looking back now, I feel silly , because I kept thinking: "Maybe I can find dynamite in the house in the forest", "Maybe I can find dynamite in the city of love?". I remember having vivid hatred for the beast, because I found out later that he was hiding the dynamite, but i rage-quit the game without me even knowing the game tells you the beast has it. 1 year and a full playthrough of Bookworm Adventures later, and i went back to it. After trying 4 or so times, i finally got it and I finished the game. I then tried to 100% it over the course of many days and then I noticed something. When you start up the game, it said "Amaranth Games" (Which is what the site went by at the time). I decided to look into the forum part and I kinda liked it, so i made an account (Sorry @Aisling Yinyr Ngaio for making an account while 12), and I kinda liked it for a while, until the site sorta silenced out. I came back Once every year, followed the development of new Aveyond games aaand yeah . Aveyond was the main reason I didn't have to worry in English class, and my first introduction to RPG's. And that about sums it up. I used to have another account (PiePeter), but due to provider reasons, i lost acces to that e-mail account. So yeah, good day.

    Hi

    I've been a long time lurker, sometimes poster. Some of you probably know by now that I'm crazy about Aveyond. Seriously. I love it so much, every few years I feel a compulsion to make another one, no matter the cost. Other than that? I love programming. And I love gaming, hanging out with gamers, and inspiring people to become game makers so I have more games to play. Recent drama: I just expelled a rat family from my attic and relocated them in my neighbors palm tree. Does that make me a horrible person? Anyways, the rats are happy, my attic is quiet, and I'm no longer a zombie in the day because they were keeping me up at night.

    This week, I'm building the unit tests for the databases. Unit tests are a quick way to check to make sure that everything is working properly if I make changes to the system down the line. Getting ready to tackle the in-game side of development, but taking a breather this week. The databases were a big project. I'm looking forward to getting things done as I have game ideas that need this add-on soon.

    Things have been a bit slow with the holidays, but I'm more than ready to get back to work. I've cleared my desk of 2D projects with the submission of HeroKit 1.07 to the asset store and the installment of this tutorial: Now that 2D is finished, all of my focus is on RPG Creator and whipping out a few custom actions for UFPS and possibly Third Person Controller. Add/Update Color actions will also be added to to HeroKit core, but I'm waiting to implement this because there are likely many places Update Color can be applied and I'm making a list.

    @Mu11berry's in-depth playthrough and commentary of AV2 has led me to do some thinking on my favorite and first Aveyond game, and I've come to a realization on why it stands apart from the other AV games (for me, anyway). Aveyond 2 is ultimately a story about building people up so they can help others heal. All of the games have this element of character development, but in AV2 it's literally the entire plot. In AP the 'collection quest' is building a weapon, in AV1 it's defeating the daevas, in AV3 it...jumps around a bit, but it's still focused on defeating Gyendal more than anything, and AV4 doesn't have one I think? But SotM is so different thematically from the others I'll just leave it aside. But in AV2, it's about restoring Iya's spirit, making the protagonist's character development and growing strength into something literal, rather than being about destroying or defeating a villain. And as far as the final battle goes, all the others are fairly straightforward - defeat the evil villain with the help of your party so good prevails. Not that I have any problem with this plot - it's a classic for a reason, after all - but it makes me appreciate AV2's final battle all the more. First you have to defeat the Snow Queen, the antagonist of the game...but you don't really defeat her, you redeem her. The Snow Queen is Ishtar, the nymph of compassion - which is exactly what Iya showed when she gave Ishtar the love blessing at the end. Ishtar took Iya's spirit, so now Iya has to give Ishtar her spirit before she can receive the final blessing and go home. See the parallels?? Giving, not taking or defeating, is the answer. And even Heptitus, the real 'big bad', isn't a standard villain either. As the nymph of wickedness, Iya needed her blessing to be whole again, just as much as she needed Ishtar's blessing. And as the nymph of wickedness, she's really expected to do these kind of things anyway And at the end, rather than punishing her children, the Goddess shows forgiveness and gives them an additional chance to redeem themselves. The characters in the party reflect this theme as well. Ean is the main character and party leader, but his main goal is to help Iya with her journey and to unite the kingdoms behind her. This struck me as odd to have a side-character as the protagonist, but now I realize it fits with the theme of supporting and building others up. Nicolas' story is almost a microcosm of the plot as a whole, since he grows so much as a person once he's exposed to the world. He wasn't really a bad guy - spoiled and selfish and naive yes, but not truly evil - but like Ean and Iya, his journey (and Ava, bless her) turned him into the best version of himself. It wasn't about breaking the haughty, it was about turning him into a better person. Aaaaaand I'll stop ranting now

    The rest of this week is dedicated to fixing bugs, migrating the creator's guide to this site (right now it's in a PDF), and releasing the final version of HeroKit for 2D and 3D. Once this version is finished, my focus will be solely on building the RPG Creator and creating your custom actions.

    I have a feeling I may have said this when I did my annual Star Wars rewatch last year, but Rhen is totally Anakin Skywalker - chosen one, most powerful in their generation, became a slave and then earned their freedom after their power was discovered, goes on a quest to stop evil forces but then (in the 'bad ending' of Aveyond 1, anyway) ends up joining them. It all fits

    Finished refactoring most 3D movement actions. You will soon be able to blend your 3D player controller actions with custom movement actions like jump. Like with 2D, I had custom movements completely separated from the player controllers. Now the two systems work together. Going through the first series of testing today. I CANNOT wait to start building RPG-specific things for HeroKit. The time is almost here.

    Made good progress with the platform movement actions last night. Originally, the ability to control a hero object with a platform controller or via movement actions (platform movements) were completely separate scripts. I didn't like this because most of the code was the same, so I created a third helper script (movement2D) that contains all of the settings and functions that are needed by both platform controller and platform movement scripts. This is important because when something happens in the platform controller AND the platform movement scripts, the resulting physics needs to blend together. So far, the platform controller script is complete and I have "move left" and "move right" actions for the platform movement script complete. Next, I'm going to add "jump" to the platform movement script. This script will eventually contain additional platformer-specific actions (attack, defend, crawl, climb, etc). BUT, don't expect a bunch of these actions soon. I have to get the basic functionality complete for platformer movement and top-down RPG-style movement. The good news is that you will be able to add these yourself via your custom created actions.

    A Forum Game Project!!

    Hey everyone!!! So we another exciting idea/plan that all the creative brilliance must be given to @Honey Butter Chloe for I was just elected to create the topic because I have an overabundance of time and zero life to speak of XD After many hours of work and aggravation we finally have enough to release to share teasers and reveal our new game!!! This is an idea that Chloe came up with quite a while ago, that it would be so much fun to create a game to give back to Amanda, the mods and the community where the characters we played were actually us!!! We are currently creating a small fun adventure game where forum members have a chance to play as themselves through a quest! We do have an confession to make haha, we've been kind of leading you on for a bit. Some of you might remember the topic that was started a bit ago called If You Could Be...? where you guys were asked about what you would look like/be if you were in an Aveyond game. Well.....that was for this XD We also teased a tiny bit at the idea when Chloe released a status several weeks ago talking about how interesting it would be to have a game based off forum people just to see how people would react to the idea All credit for this goes straight to Chloe who is the creative mastermind behind this idea, I was just brought on to make shiny and colourful things XD Occasionally we plan to release some small teasers haha so keep an eye out!!

    So I had two art pieces to share today but one of them was to fill the Aveyond prompt meme so I shared it in that thread but now I just have one piece for here so XD XD I should really plan these things better. Their first meeting, when he kisses her hand, and then she blushes, and he smiles~~ Argh it's so adorable, I cry a little everytime. It's just that she hasn't been complimented or respected like that for longer than a year and she's so precious and genuine, and this is probably the first time he has smiled in a long time, and they are just-- Perfect. P.S. Have some more sparkles

    @Rodania Thank you!! I love all the fancy stuff you did with the text XD @everyone HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! I have a thing to share with you in celebration of this most spooky of eves. Ahem !!!!! Aren't they so cute!! I mean terrifying obviously. I mean... I'd better shut up XD Anyway, their costumes were my roommates' ideas. My roommates know nothing about Aveyond and these were the suggestions they gave me so I obviously couldn't resist haha. I enjoyed drawing sulking Te'ijal and happy Galahad, they should do this more often XD And I have another non-Halloween thing for you guys too: I found a sparkly brush. I regret nothing. NOTHING. Here is Dameon holding Rhen because sometimes it's nice to have someone just hold you and listen and let you cry. And Rhen's been through so much and it was making me sad so. Clearly I had to draw RxD. I tried a new method for this. I traced over my sketch and then drew under the tracing instead of drawing right under the sketch so. Maybe I'll do this again, maybe not >.>

    ... Hi, hi!

    Soooooo... I can't say I'm new, nor can I say I'm an old-timer. But I saw that everyone was introducing themselves here, so I thought... Hey, why not? (After reading every single one XDXD) It could be fun! -- So, hey, hi, ho, hello, my name is Honey Butter Chloe, but please, just call me Chloe. It's the only place where I'll ever be called Chloe. (My classmates and teachers refer to me using my surname. ) As I've probably said in the last introduction I did in the old introduction thread, I've been a fan of Aveyond since I was seven years old, when I played with my elder sister. Now she's in university and I'm stuck as a first year in secondary school. (I'm twelve now xD) Since then, I've been a HUGE fan of anything Rhen x Lars and Edward x Mel, and (much to Berry's chagrin at times) a hater of Rhen x Dameon. BUT NOW I HAVE BEEN CONVERTED. This fanbase is nuts for their creativity. But yeah. Besides that, I write trashy fluff and random one-shots. When I'm not lazy. But don't read them they're terrible omg— And I draw. Chibis. Which is not at all professional. But I still do it anyway. I'm such a good girl. *Sarcasm* Soooo, I hope to get along with everyone! ^,^

Am also a huge fan of To The Moon, Ib, The Witch's House and almost every Japanese horror rpg (if you guys are familiar with vgperson and her translation works) I'm still in contact, on other social platforms, with some of my very best online friends I made here. It's amazing how friendships do last So yeah /off to explore the forums.

    Hello World~

    I'm not exactly new but I thought it would be fun to jump in and "introduce" myself anyway so here goes Hi, I'm Queen-of-Ice101 but since that can be a pain to type you can call me pretty much whatever haha. Some people call me Queen, or Miranda.....just never Elsa XD XD I joined the forums way back in 2015 when Aveyond 4 was being released so I could keep up with all the character reveals and stuff, but I ended up fading out after it was released since I wasn't able to get ahold of the games on mac. Then last July {I think????} I discovered the wonders of Aveyond fan fiction over on Fanfiction.net and remembered seeing a fanfiction topic on the forums so I cam back to haunt the new forums and share random work. I am now an official lurker, I've been hanging around since returning and constantly spamming random stuffs in the topics because I can~ I mostly write fanfiction right now, currently have two long multi chapter stories posted here {One completed the other one still in progress} as well as a huge collection or random oneshots and story shorts. I also post artsy doodles and other random projects that I start before quitting to move onto the next shiny idea haha. Fan fiction is the one constant thing from me though, since writing is my life I have a large pile of favourite characters but the honourable mentions that I have spammed the forums with work for would have to be Mel and Gyendal because sarcasm and all powerful magic are a truly wonderful combination in a character I am a crackshipper, my shipping world revolves around MelxGyendal because it is awesome and hilarious, though I have much appreciation for lots of cannon pairings and pairings like RhenxLars as well Thats pretty much it about me, I love talking about Aveyond as well as other random fanstuffs so I'm always excited to meet fellow fans and chat, the forum is a wonderful place for that:D

    Cirque d'illusion

    Cirque d'illusion ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beware Oh watch out for the Cirque d'illusion, bringing promises of fun and cheer. A tent of revelry as visitors laugh and watch in awe of death defying dances Any who walk into that tent will delight in what they see Please stay to the surface, don't try to lift the mask of Cirque d'illusion The Cover your ears to the pleas for help, close your eyes to the broken gazes Don't stray from the path to see the truth, don't uncover the secrets hidden away Trust the honeyed lies of the circus master, obey Ahriman's warning to stay to the light Flee the tent as the final curtain falls, do not lift it to see what lies beyond Circus Yet you step beyond anyway, peering into the gloom when the ringmaster has turned away Venturing towards the practice caravans behind, listen to the wailing cries Ignoring the warnings you were given, step by step straying further from the light Finally you reach the first of the wagons, and you hold your breath before looking in. Of First is the live doll they called Iya, so graceful as she spins and twirls Shimmering blue hair fanned our around her, contrasting pain that wreaths her gentle features Her feet follow precise movements, bringing attention to worn slippers and bloodies toes This dance her curse, as she performs a never ending show Illusions A gasp of shock as you back away The mask of the circus is beginning to fade On you continue, driven to see what truly lies beneath Then to your left you hear a cry, turning aside to where the shadows hide For A massive cage sits aside, the figure of the animal trainer called Lars illuminated by a sliver of moonlight A bloodied whip is left lying in the dust as with sobbed sorries he drops to his knees You look beyond, awaiting the animals yet instead you see bloodied backs of humans Once Rhen the wolf and Dameon the proud lion, now a young couple broken as they cling in turn to the bringer of their pain If Quickly and quietly you flee from the cage Unable to comprehend what your eyes have seen So you turn to the next caravan with dread in your gaze Looking in the painted wagon of scarlet, black and blue You Once on the stage the acrobat named Mel had flipped and leapt, performing as if her limbs were guided by another Above on a balcony had stood a man called Gyendal, smiles to the crowd as he pretended to guid invisible strings But now she lay tangled in strings, ropes red to hide the stain as they cut into skin Cradled in the arms of the puppet master bound in shackles, head bowed to hide his rage Step A sickened feeling fills you Seeing the horror behind the curtain Yet still deeper you go, unable to turn away Drawn this time by the haunting song of the snake charmer Behind A woman sits crosslegged on the ground, one who had commanded the snakes with song They had called her Elini the snake charmer, yet here she sat in trance as the snakes whispered in her ears She swayed to music haunting and clear as tables were turned and she became the one who served A charmer who was charmed, her mind not her own any longer The You spin away from the snakes And find yourself looking at the trapeze tent An act is performing their practice You are the only one privy to the private showing Curtains Dressed in shining costumes with gauzy wings, the two trapeze artists flip from swing to swing A young woman known as Stella arcs through the air but with a cry misses the outstretched hands and falls to the ground below her Her partner Edward drops to her side next to her only bent leg, listening as she sobs they must go on So with pained screams she stands, and they perform once again You The Cirque d'illusion is not a place of laughter and cheer It is a place of blood, darkness and fear You go to flee, but it is too late As you turn to see the ringmaster cut off your escape Will The juggler steps forward, the pretty painted girl whom they called Lydia In the ring she had juggled brightly coloured balls, but now you could see the truth Soul orbs, the true prisons for the members of the Cirque d'illusion However now there was another one, an empty one just for you Never Be Able To Leave. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The next night the lights came down as the circus began anew Applause and excitement as dancers, acrobats and animal acts took the stage But tonight there was an act new, the tightrope that had been untouched before A lone figure with a bright smile painted on a pale face as you step forward with the swell of the music It is time for the final act of the night And your first act in your Circus of Illusion eternity ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Beware the Circus of Illusion for if You Step Behind the Curtain You Will Never Be Able to Leave.

    I am at the moment acting like a total spazz in excitement:D I really wanted RPG Maker MV after finding out it could run on mac but with it close to being a hundred dollars it was more of an "ah I wish" kind of thing. Nevertheless I put it on my wishlist anyway, and yesterday evening I got an email from Steam.... Guess what went on sale for 26 bucks?? RPG MAKER MV!!!! I now have a shiny new program that I am going to have a blast learning:D It will donate to me many a day of frustration, rage quitting, and excitement

    This isn't solely Aveyond fanart but because it had Aveyond in it I wanted to share anyway:) This was a lot of fun to do, it was born of boredom at church waiting for my ride and since my drawing stuff is a constant companion for me I decided to amuse myself and pass the time drawing. Did the entire outline at church, and coloured it in at home. These are the chibis of my three top fav male characters which on second consideration are incredibly similar. First is Undertaker from Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji and I had a blast drawing him XD XD I adore his character greatly, in the beginning of the manga he's goofy and creepy and hysterical, then later in the series he's creepy and sarcastic and insanely powerful (that ship battle anyone? Fended off a ancient demon and two reapers with not even half the effort they put into him??) and still hysterical. I seriously want a live chibi version that I can carry around in my pocket and feed bone cookies. Next is Gyendal from Aveyond, when he's still a vampire His character is maniacal, sarcastic, dark and calculating. I cannot figure out why I love his character so much since he has little screentime and he's the game villain but I can't help it. I adores him. I want a chibi bat him to carry around with my Undertaker. Last is Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Honestly I could go on about why I adore his character depth and the intricacies of the storyline the writers designed for him but I'll just sum it up quickly to spare you all. His tragic backstory is a writers dream, 'nuff said So two of these faves are after world domination, all three of them are sarcastic and devil-may-care, and they all have slightly psychotic ambitions. I think I need help. XD XD so yes, Undertaker, Gyendal and Loki the chibi three~

    This fic is dedicated to @Rodania ♡ and @Mu11berry, whose rants about T/G causes me to have the dream that inspired this fic. This is...definitely not the kind of pairing or story I usually write, and it turned out kinda OOC, but I hope the fans of this pairing enjoy it anyway. On the Nature of Marriage (and Vampires) Summary: Set AV2-era. Te'ijal and Galahad work out some problems in their relationship. Afternoon sunlight dappled through the windows of the old Sedona mansion. On the threshold stood a couple - a lady in red and a knight in tarnished armor. The woman swung open the doors, turning the ornate handles with a moonlight-pale hand adorned with polished ruby fingernails. She briefly considered asking her husband to carry her over the threshold, as she once did many years ago, but she already know what her answer would be. Instead, she sashayed grandly into the house, leading her partner by the hand. "Here it is. The house we shared with Rhen Pendragon over a century ago. Galahad, do you like it?" Galahad remained a pillar in the center of the grand foyer, ignoring Te'ijal's attempts to lead him around as if they were in a ballroom. "So this is what you were doing when you went to the Overworld," he observed. "Yes, and it was quite a bit of trouble, too. This estate has been the summer home of the Pendragons for centuries. A man named Uthar Pendragon was willing to sell, though. With a bit of bribery, of course." Te'ijal grinned, showing off fangs that sparkled in the sunlight. "Uthar is a respectable man. I hope you haven't slighted his family." "It was harmless, my dear. I paid him a respectable sum, not that he needs it anyway." Te'ijal ran along the perimeter of the room, opening curtains to flood the room with light that reflected off the gilded banisters and light fixtures. "Look at how bright it is!" She reached up to remove the broad-rimmed sun hat she used to hide her preternatural features from mortals. Stray locks of ruby red hair sprang loose from their updo, glinting in the sunlight as they fell. Te'ijal smiled, a genuine smile of joy that was so different from her usual mischievous smirk. Galahad had to look away. "It certainly is beautiful," he mused. "Thank you, wife." "I'll get our bags from the carriage," said Te'ijal, and she flitted out the door. When she returned after unpacking, she found Galahad in the dining room, tracing the corner of the table that was much too large for two people. Te'ijal placed a hand on the shoulder of Galahad's armor. "I remember when we were first married, and I would chase you around this table for hours," she laughed. "But we don't have to eat here anymore, if you wish. Is something the matter?" Galahad turned to face her. "Look at the table." Te'ijal looked, seeing the gold-plated edges, the polished wooden surface, and the plates and silverware set up for a meal, probably by the servants that used to wait on the Pendragons. "I can barely even see my reflection in it," Galahad noted bitterly. "And you - you're not even there at all." He turned away again, not wanting to face his wife, his maker, the woman who had given him all this but could never give him back his life. "I'm right here, Galahad. Why does it matter if we can't see our reflections? All we need to see is each other. I thought this is what you wanted - to live under the sun again." He suddenly slammed his fist on the table, causing the dinnerware to clatter. Te'ijal flinched, but only slightly - she was a warrior hundreds of years old, and her husband's temper was nothing new to her. "Look at me!" He thrust his hand in front of her face. "My skin is already starting to burn. I can never truly live in the light, not after what you did to me." Galahad stalked off to one of the bedrooms - the bedroom they had shared after they were married. Te'ijal knew how to battle, but comforting others was something foreign to her. She thought she had finally done something right to please him. Through years of ranting about his moral code, Galahad had taught her that marriage was about sacrifice. Leaving her home in Ghed'ahre wasn't easy, but she did it for him. Te'ijal had sacrificed a fair bit, but she couldn't sacrifice her very nature. Was that what he wanted her to do? After so many centuries, her humanity was nothing more than a distant memory. Except, of course, with Galahad. Being around him made her feel foolish human things, like anger, and love, and stinging guilt that didn't use to bother her but now pricked at her eyes and heart. She wanted to run after Galahad, to apologize, to tell him off for being so irrational, to show him that he had hurt her too. But all she did was wait for night to fall, as if the moon held all her answers. ***** The next morning, Galahad woke to birds chirping and sunlight filtering through the windows. It was a feeling he hadn't experienced for a hundred years. The sunlight warmed his soul for a blissful, ignorant moment before he remembered he didn't have a soul anymore and that the sun would burn him if he didn't apply his morning sunblock. He reached over to wake his wife, and then the memory of last night's argument came back too, along with a pang of guilt for having acted so ungrateful. "Wife?" he called. The shout echoed through the empty house. Pressing down a feeling of hurt, Galahad got out of bed to check the other rooms. "I'm sorry for my outburst last night," he said, hoping that she'd appear to accept his apology. His calls became more frantic as he searched the house. It was only by accident that he discovered a note left on the dining room table, written in his wife's flourishing penmanship. Galahad- The house is yours. I've gone to the Underworld to think some things over. I'll be back soon. Te'ijal **** The humid night air soothed Te'ijal's skin instantly as she crossed into the Underworld. As much as she loved her adventures in the land above, the realm of darkness was her true home. People like her husband couldn't understand the appeal of the darkness, of the everlasting night and shadowy corners full of twisted and wonderful things. She enjoyed the long walk to Ghed'ahre, pausing by her old house near the front of the city. But that wasn't why she was here today. The library loomed large at the edge of town, with several floors dedicated to preserving centuries' worth of books. It was a common misconception of the living that the undead were also brain-dead, but since most of them were hundreds of years old and didn't concern themselves with the time-consuming chore of surviving, it was only natural that they often developed academic interests. The Ghed'ahre library was the largest in all of Aia, second only to the Elvish library in Delamere. The main lobby was milling with undead creatures of all sorts. Ghosts visiting from Casket Hill rifled through books, possibly hoping to find information about a lost loved one. A group of darklings was hovering near the highest shelf on the bookcase, poring over a large volume and whispering about a prophecy (word on the street was that the prophecy wouldn't come to pass for hundreds of years, but it was never to early to start preparing). Te'ijal approached the vampire at the front desk, a stout, bald man who was one of the oldest in Ghed'ahre. "Could I speak with Gyendal Ravenfoot, please?" "Professor Ravenfoot is currently occupied with his research. Please come back later." "He can't make an exception for his own sister?" "Te'ijal? You're back so soon," said the vampire, taking off his glasses. "In that case, you'll find him on the third floor." Te'ijal wasted no time in racing up the stairs. The third floor was nearly empty, save for one cloaked figure tucked away between too bookshelves. "Gyendal." The vampire looked up from his reading. "Te'ijal!" Gyendal threw down his book and enveloped his sister in a crushing embrace. "Sister, how long has it been?" "Too long. Almost fifty years." "Ah, yes, I've been traveling in the Overworld." "You know, I live there now. Just got the Pendragon's old place in Sedona." "The Arishta Isles? I prefer the Mainland myself." Gyendal pulled out two chairs and sat down. "So, what brings you here? Besides wanting to catch up with your little brother." Te'ijal joined her brother at the table. "I have a...problem, that may require magic. And no one I know is more skilled at magic than you, Gyen. Galahad-" Gyendal rolled his eyes, not even trying to mask his reaction. "That human again? You've been obsessed with him for a century. Humans aren't pets, Tei. They're vicious creatures that would like nothing more than to murder the lot of us." "Coming from someone who spent the last half-century in the Overworld," Te'ijal scowled. "Besides, this one's my husband. Will you help me or not?" Gyendal sighed, and nodded in assent. "Thank you, brother. I...I need to know if there's any way of turning a vampire back into a human." Gyendal stood up suddenly. "You can't turn into a human, Te'ijal!" Te'ijal followed suit, slamming her hands on the table as she did so. "Not me, you idiot! I did think of it at first, but I could never give up this - immortality, inhuman strength, Ghed'ahre. It's entirely too much fun. There are some things you just can't sacrifice. But Galahad," Te'ijal lowered her voice and sat down, pushing her white-streaked bangs out of her face. "Galahad will never be happy as one of us. He doesn't love me, so nothing I give him will ever be enough." Gyendal pondered for a moment. "There might be something I can do." He led Te'ijal to a bookcase full of dark magic-related items. "During my travels, I learned of a recently deceased human sorcerer named Mordred Darkthrop," he began, pointing to a diagram of an orb in a textbook. "He's creating a set of orbs, one of darkness and one of light. But there is a rumor that he created another orb, one which can make the undead live again. I've begun researching more about these orbs, but I haven't found their location. When I return to the Overworld, I'll make every effort to find it for you." "Thank you, brother." Te'ijal turned to leave, and paused. "I still don't know what to do about Galahad. Even after all this time, he still acts like a human. I don't understand..." Gyendal scoffed, lost in a passage about the Orb of Darkness. "Humans, so sentimental. I'm sure you'll think of something." ***** A heavy feeling of guilt weighed down Galahad like a second suit of armor as he traipsed through the forest surrounding Ghed'ahre. He had chased his own wife away to the Underworld with his petulant temper. A century ago, such an abhorrent act would have been unthinkable to him. Contrary to her infernal nature, his wife had been...kind. Galahad would never have thought a demon could learn to love, but maybe he was wrong. Or maybe his wife wasn't a demon after all. "Te'ijal?" He called. The woods didn't even give an echo in response. A scream pierced the night. Galahad's sword was drawn in an instant, ready to defend. He ran faster through the forest. When he saw the victim, his sword dropped. His wife lay on the ground, blood staining her pale skin, a stake jammed through her ribcage. "Galahad..." He rushed to her in an instant. "Te'ijal." It was the first time he'd called her by her name in...he couldn't even remember how long. His hand moved to the stake in her chest, but he was no healer. It settled behind her head instead, cradling it as he lifted her into his lap. "Te'ijal, I'm so sorry." The eyes and lips that were usually so bright and full of fire were now faded to a hue weaker than that of the dried blood. Her lips twisted into a serene smile, one he'd never seen on her before. Even as her life bled out in his arms, Galahad couldn't help but think she was beautiful. He wanted to ask who did this to her - chase after them, make them pay with his sword - but he feared she didn't have many moments left. A hot tear pricked at his eyes. Galahad blinked it away in surprise, but another one only fell in its place. He thought vampires couldn't cry, but the tears had come anyway. "Galahad?" The voice didn't come from the woman in his arms, but from several feet away. It sounded like...but no, it couldn't be. "Galahad, I heard your voice. Stop hiding." "Te'ijal?!" Galahad had lived twice as long as most humans, but the sight of the woman who was currently dying in his arms running up to him was both the most relieving and the strangest. "Husband, what...oh." Te'ijal reached for her bow and arrow, and fired a shot into her own chest. The woman in Galahad's arms morphed into a small blue darkling, who snickered and jumped away before Galahad could stick him with his sword. "I overheard you in the library, Tei...just wait til I tell the Professor about this!" The darkling cackled and skittered away into the night. Te'ijal reached a hand out to her husband, who, too shaken to stand up on his own, gladly accepted. "Galahad, are you alright? Did that pest hurt you?" "No, it didn't do anything," Galahad shook his head. "Actually, yes. I thought you were dead. I almost had a heart attack!" Galahad was in serious danger of either shaking his wife in frustration or grabbing her by the shoulders and kissing her passionately, so he instead enveloped her in a fierce hug. Te'ijal didn't know how to respond. Galahad hadn't hugged her in...well, ever. So she did the only thing she could do - she hugged him back, gripping him like she really was dying and he was the only thing anchoring her to the world. "Foolish husband, you know vampires don't have hearts." As they stood there holding each other, each of their faces tucked into the other's necks so neither could see the tears running down their faces, both decided to ignore the inaccuracy of that statement. ***** "Husband, I have a gift for you," Te'ijal said as she joined Galahad for breakfast. Neither of them actually needed to eat, but they had found it was a routine they enjoyed to help pass the time in their new home. A glass of cow's blood for Te'ijal, coffee for Galahad, and toast and star peaches for them both. "Is it another house?" Galahad joked. Te'ijal merely raised her eyebrows cryptically and presented him with a small box. "Open it," she encouraged. Curiosity piqued, Galahad complied. Inside was a necklace with a glowing pendant. It was the same one that his wife had worn around her neck since before they'd been married. His fingers were pulled to it, almost magnetically. His wife had given him his soul back. "Do you like it?" Te'ijal asked, feigning nonchalance. "I got it from a lovely Necromancer's shop. I was thinking of keeping it for myself, but I thought it matched so well with your lovely eyes, and-" "Te'ijal," he cut her off with a hand over hers. "Thank you." Galahad turned the pendant over in his hands. The contract binding him to Te'ijal had technically been voided when she married him, but she'd still worn his soul around her neck. After all these years, his soul was once again his own. He leaned over and fastened it around her neck. "But I think you'd better keep it."

    LOL a gift for the dear @Mu11berry in honour of her death by spazzy phone. When impatient Aveyond fans get to story writing and one of the phones spaces out the only clear logical conclusion is that they have died and thus it only makes sense to make them a grave~ Beeeerryyyy is now a ghooooooost

    *Ahem* Here is a thing which is not for the challenge which I just drew because I am obsessed and it turned out sort of cute but also the scanner messed up the colors a bit but it's okay, it's rhenxdameon so I still think it's cute, so here it is: Why are they adorable T.T

    Whoops, I'm sharing new art~ Would you like at that, how impertinent of me. Aaannnyyway here are two pieces for day 4 of the challenge by @Queen-of-Ice101 ... I made two because I am bad at decisions, okay? Speaking of being bad at decisions, day 4 is favorite character, and I had SUCH A HARD TIME picking just one character as a favorite. Honesty I still can't decide, but I realized that I've only ever drawn this particular character with Rhen, and also, how could I pass up such a perfect opportunity to rant about why I love Dameon? (... You all probably knew who I was going to draw before I did honestly but here we are XD XD)

    Aw, look at this dusty little art corner. Time to shake off some cobwebs, I think. To start, here's Talia Maurva, one of my favorite characters from AV1. This art was inspired by the Aveyond 31 Day Challenge, hooray! Also here's a pic of her butterfly minion:

    I am supposed to have done several assignments, a slideshow, a paper, a story that I said I would finish by yesterday, and a collaboration fic with Scrivener that I have to get working on... and what do I write? Freakin' THIS. Anyway, if you're unfamiliar with the Bee Movie script meme, I suggest you look it up if you want to understand this ficlet lmao ***** When Ingrid walked into her house after a long day of potion-making, the last thing she expected to see was a room full of bees. Boyle seemed to be trying to coax them back into the empty beehive on their bed, but wasn't doing anything more than swatting around and flinching whenever a bee flew too close. Ingrid cleared her throat, and her husband leapt back several feet, knocking over a cabinet full of potion ingredients and miscellaneous relics from Boyle's villain days that he refused to part with. "Need any help?" Ingrid deadpanned. She considered casting a spell on the bees to make them attack Boyle, but she wasn't in the mood to take him a healer tonight. Besides, there was always the chance the spell would backfire, and she wasn't in the mood to have Boyle painstakingly pluck bee stingers out of her skin either. "Bees," was Boyle's only reply. Perhaps he was too scared of letting one into his mouth lest he say any more. A crackling ball of energy formed in Ingrid's left hand. With a flick of her manicured index finger, she directed the energy into the hive, and the swarm of bees followed suit. Ingrid folded her arms, shifted her weight onto one foot, and aimed an annoyed glare in Boyle's general direction while she waited for her husband to right his clothes and regain his dignity. He would need it in order to explain what in all of Aia he was thinking when he let a hive of bees loose in their house. "Sit down, Boyle," Ingrid began in her best don't-mess-with-me-or-I-will-hex-you voice. "Not there, sit on the bed, next to the bees. Now, would you mind telling me who or what put a berserk curse on you, because I can think of no other explanation of why you would bring home a hive of bees!" "I was thinking, since I'm 'retired' now, apparently, that I'd need a hobby. And what better hobby than beekeeping? I met this wonderful traveling bee salesman in the market today, and he told me all about the health benefits of honey, and how the bees are endangered. If bees go extinct the entire world supply of food could-" "You fool, that's just a marketing ploy to sell more bees!" "Don't be so cynical, Ingrid. He also gave me this beekeeping manual - free with the purchase of one beehive, I might add - and it's all right here." Boyle rummaged around in the folds of his villain costume and pulled out a small white booklet, which Ingrid promptly snatched out of his hands. "'Bee Movie Script'," she read. "What's a movie? Or a script?" "I don't know, but he said it fell through from a portal to another dimension." He took the booklet from her and flipped it open to the first page. "'According to all known laws of aviation, a bee should not be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway, because bees do not care what humans think is impossible.' Isn't that the greatest opening to any literary masterpiece you've ever read?" Ingrid kicked off her boots and sat down next to Boyle on the bed. She rested her chin on his shoulder as she angled the book so she could better read this so-called 'script' "Let me see that...'Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow, let's shake it up a little.' Boyle, what kind of drivel is this?" "You have no taste in art. The main character - Barry, he's called - is a talking bee. He's trying to choose his outfit, but they're all black and yellow. Because he's a BEE." "A talking insect, eh? That's not that funny." Ingrid's face suddenly split into a wicked grin. "Unless it's that time I turned you into a bug. Now THAT was HILARIOUS." Boyle began to pout in that way he does when one of his evil schemes doesn't go as planned and he tries to hide it behind a facade of villainous anger, but just ends up looking adorable. "You're never going to let me live that down, are you? All these months, I support this house, and all you can do is-" "I'm the one who works. You're retired, remember?" Ingrid interjected. "But the name. MY name. The great evil legacy of Wolfbane has carried us-" "Your name is Pendragon, and I'm pretty sure the royal family officially disowned you." "Well. I just. You. You're married to me, so technically they disowned you too!" Boyle threw his hands up in exasperation, looking over at the hive of bees as if he expected agree with him. Ingrid sighed again. She would never run out of sighs as long as she was married to this ridiculous man, who kept evil thrones in his living room and brought home hives full of bees and scripts from parallel universes. But he was cursed to spent the rest of this life with her, and she wouldn't have it any other way. Ingrid suspected that it would be a good idea to invest in a bee-proof veil to attach to her hat. "Hey Boyle, want to read some more of that Bee Movie Script?" "Okay."

    So I decided to do something fun and I have created an Aveyond youtube account!! I made it so that I could save all sorts of Aveyond related videos in one place for fellow fans to access easier, and I plan to create random fan trailers and potentially more types of fan videos too to post on it!! I would like to eventually get more people on management of the account so that other active fans in the community can post their work there too, but thats just a pipe dream right now haha.

    Boyle aesthetic! He's my favorite character from Aveyond 4 so I had to make an aesthetic of him. It coincides with one of the last prompts of Queen-of-Ice's 31 day challenge, but I'm too lazy to count what day I should post it on...maybe I should rethink my decision to major in math I'll definitely make more AV4 aesthetics because I forgot how much I love the characters til now! I want to replay, but I still haven't finished AP, lolol

    Well here I am again with more Aveyond fanart! This time I remembered to post when I finished a piece so I only have one, instead of fifty, hahaha. This is another one for @Queen-of-Ice101's challenge. (Am I supposed to be posting that I did a piece in the topic??? I wasn't sure) Day 2, mage guild of choice!! Hopefully this works on the new site. I'm a little paranoid, haha. And I can't find the preview button sooooooo. I chose the Dragon Lord guild from Ahriman's prophecy, because Talia's title in it is Fire Lord and I think that's so beautiful. (See Avatar: The Last Airbender) I also love fire and dragons, and the fire relic story line in AP is pretty cool. Haha I am realizing a lot of you haven't played or don't remember AP, but just trust me, okay. Hopefully that reboot will happen soon and you'll all see what I mean. The dragon behind her... is Frederick le Mew!! I really adore Frederick, I think I'm going to try to add him into all the pictures I can XD Also, this is my first time doing fire digitally, and I can't even do it traditionally soooo I had fun. I tried to look up tutorials, but they were all for realistic fire so they wouldn't really fit the rest of the picture. Ahahahahahahaha Also, is there a way to shrink pictures on here? This looks so huge from this window O.O
