Redlow.net

Welcome to redlow.net, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

In 2001 or 2002, Ultima Online's unique volunteer program consisting of Seers, Counselors, Troubadors, and new player advisors (whose exact titles are eluding me!) was canceled. These were players working for free to help the game including running quests (like a dungeon master in D&D) and helping - by hand - new players adjust to the game. I interviewed one of the seers shortly after the program was terminated.

A UO player whose character was "Rok Hagor" interviewed me one evening. It was.. uh, real?

This simple, no-frills version of Minesweeper is an android application built, somewhat clumsily, with HTML and JS using HTML tables.

A chair designed in 3D Studio Max, built off a sketch which was loosely based on some chairs in a Barnes & Noble. Rendered with lighting

Some old banners and logos from previous versions of redlow.net

A sample card from a game, "Thy Dunjon Quest". The illustration is by a friend, the rest was done in Photoshop CS5 by myself.

For immediate release:
THEY Corp. reports a major merger between Tuesday and neighboring day, Wednesday.

An award-winning poem.... from a computer game. Also, about a computer game. Can you say nerd? I can. I smell it too!

A very simple randomization-driven app to waste your time.  It generates a random name and statistics of intergalatic locations, for your favorite science fiction projects.

Some amusing graphics and diagrams from, ohh, before you were born.

Arguably, although probably not true, this is my best piece of fiction. Having nothing to do with the movie with a similar name, it is instead about two lab researchers at a university investigating the existence (or lack of) god. It's science fiction as well, in that holograms run rampant in this world, and more often than not, serve as a metaphor for God, God's love, or just love itself. If you like artsy, but still entertaining short stories, you'll enjoy it.

A bench free-handed in 3D Studio Max. A simple granite texture has been applied with, I believe, a bump map. Rendered with one light.
