Blood meadows

A cursed/blessed biome not unlike the moon gardens, but... it's fleshy, there are no trees, the moon rises red, the daytime sky is red, and the sun is blackened by a dark energy coursing through the sky... In fact, the sun looks like the pupil of an eye in the sky. Creatures that would otherwise be inhibited during the daytime like eclipsids are able to roam freely, so it's not necessarily the safest place. It wouldn't necessarily be an evil or disgusting place, but it would preserve and fortify magicks surrounding the dead.

Angel's Curtain

A truly gargantuan sea creature enveloped in lightly colored flowing fins that, as the name implies, looks similar to a curtain from the right perspective. Sans fins, it would likely have a somewhat vertically short body with a flattened top. I imagine the fins on top taking on a bushier appearance, with the edge of the top protruding to the sides to form what may look like wings. The tail has a flattened and elongated fin that trails behind it as it swims. Underneath an angel's curtain is its namesake bouquet of long, flowing fins, long enough to completely veil a galleon. Behind this curtain is a large lamprey-like mouth. They do not need to eat often and can most often be found simply drifting along. Curiously, these creatures are able to and often do effortlessly consume entire sunken ships, spiriting it and the dead in it away like an angel would.

Engaging in combat with an Angel's curtain, one will find that those flowing fins are in fact lined with sharp spines that will tear through unprotected flesh and damage armor, though barring an attacker being shaken off they are vulnerable to combatants that get in close. They can also suck attackers into their mouths and crush them, which is devastating and usually fatal. They are also capable of performing a death spin of sorts, which would push attackers away and deal heavy damage to foes that are too close or that are knocked off in the process. When slain, they will begin ejecting as many of their most recently consumed items as possible, though their meat and fins may be harvestable to some end.

Got sidetracked with another writing project. :x

Maybe I can start the "cult of getting stuff done". Smiley

The cult of procrastination would like to have a word with you.

...when they get around to it.  Wink

Over a month in and I haven't broken any chains yet and I'm still really inspired by this system.  It's passed many tests, too.

There have been nights I just wanted to go to bed but I decided I didn't want to break my "cleaning" chain so I just spent 5 minutes cleaning part of my office... only for that to balloon into 15 minutes of really thorough organization of some pile of crap.  Then finally going to bed feeling much better about life in general.

One of the projects I cycle through as part of my "development" chain is a web app to take over for the spreadsheet.  The spreadsheet is still doing a pretty good job so I'm easily distracted by my other more fun development tasks... but still, I make a little progress on everything all the time.  Maybe soon that web app will be ready for others to try it, also.  I've already had a handful of people express real interest (and another handful express passing interest).

Maybe I can start the "cult of getting stuff done". Smiley

I remember a much older post you made about how you also found it difficult to work on large, winding tasks, because it requires you to work on it for a few hours... To keep the information you know about it in your head as you work on it. (Because sleeping on it breaks that, and you no longer have everything sorted out in your brain like you did when you were working on it)

I'm really glad you've got something going, Paul; It sounds like you haven't exactly been in the greatest shape, mentally. My love goes out to you, and your family on this.

Quite an interesting structure... Not sure I've even seen that in other games yet. Maybe a couple times in a mod for Minecraft.

8 days in, no chains broken.

The chain thing is really working, too... because there have been two days I would have given up on some things if not for that little nag.  And one of those days, I ended up putting in the most time I'd put in so far.  Well above my minimum.
