“That gun has survived in my family for at least three whole generations. Got some magick power after that whole business with the flooding, and it’s only been fired once: to kill a Revenant. There ain’t nothin’ you or any Gunsmith could do to recreate that, so I’m keepin’ it safe, right here.”
“Have I seen the Giant? Are you yankin’ my chain? It’s kinda damn hard not to see the god-damn Giant of Deadman’s Mass! It’s always on the horizon, loomin’ over something or other, always wandering… like it’s searchin’ for something. I’m personally quite inclined to let it find whatever it is, and I reckon you are too, unless you wanna get flattened…”
“The Vivisectionists are a bunch of creepy bastards… But, if it was a choice between being limbless coyote bait out in the desert, or having some questionably sane surgeon stitch monster bits onto me? I guess the doctors ain’t so bad.”
“We heard the tales of Excalibur, King Arthur, and his knights o’ the round table. Those were old legends, even before I entered this world. But knowin’ that somewhere, there was the key to eternal youth lyin’ in some pond? Poor fella just couldn’t let it stand. Even worse, he forgot he had to actually get out of the lake with the thing to live forever.”
“The Great Dragon of the West. I hear some band of fools out there worship the damned thing. Only two people ever saw it. Problem is, last I heard, those folks are now dead as a ghoul’s bones. One thing’s for sure though: you see a giant shadow over the sun? You’re already dusted.”
“You hear the one about the Practitioners? Got little servants — made of bandages, walkin’ about by their lonesome. Harmless. Try and catch one, though, and their masters’ will get your guts for garters faster than you can say “Draw”…”
“Sit on down, grab yourself a drink — let me tell you a story of fools, monsters, and six-shooters…”
“Tales tell of a lonesome man, way out in the desert sands, who chimes in a cold night’s winds. A wide-brimmed hat lined with bells, with robes and poncho to match… what could possibly lie under that hat? Well, fewer folks tell tales of that.”
My first entry to the Ring of Worms Original Character Tournament, based on the Ring of Power OCT by ABBADON, creator of Kill Six Billion Demons.
All of my art pieces and descriptions from Inktober 2017. Started off as an Improvised Superhero / Supervillain theme, then diverted later on to more broad ideas.
