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.

A PDF format version of descriptions of various colleges at Eastern Illinois University. This was written during a 6 month internship at EIU, where I worked in the University's publications department. These descriptions appeared in the primary marketing booklet for their "i am eiu." campaign that was rolling out in 2004 and, as of 2016, is still in use today.

A sort of convoluted screenplay about an immigrant, God and Satan's arguments over who people blame for what, and a 23-year-old's half baked statement about terrorism. It won some made-up classroom awards tho, so I'm sure it could be an oscar-winning movie someday!

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.

Sometimes I think I'm an architect. In a video game. Throw a little more OCD on the fire.  I take screenshots of houses I've designed in UO.

This is an article for a small, community magazine in Champaign, IL. The magazine wanted the focus to be on the school's academics, but the contact at the college didn't want to talk about that, interestingly. In fact, I had some trouble landing an interview with the college's president, who didn't want the exposure. It's not all clear-cut, sometimes.

Simple lighting, no texture render from 3D Studio Max. This is an air gun from a video game friends and I developed.

ABT, or "As Britannia Turns", was a soap opera set in Ultima Online (specifically, Great Lakes). Featuring fictional characters based on real life players' own fictional characters, it's only surpassed in meta-y-ness by a novella in the personal section called 'The Undiscovered Facet'. There's about 36 episodes, written between 2000 and, perhaps, 2004-ish.

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

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

Continuing my work building more robust modules, this module also includes hooks and an admin screen. Unlike the EU Cookie Notice, this was created to meet a very specific need which did not exist in the community that I could see.

A model designed in 3D Studio Max; built from a profile view on graph paper. No textures; just rendered with lighting.

This is a very, very short screenplay that came from a playwriting class at EIU. It stars two old Ultima Online friends and a fictional talking rat (well, real enough in this story).
