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

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

A friend challenged anyone to turn up a Singularity story (machines achieve sentience) that relied on no cliches. I totally misunderstood what he was talking about, but wrote this story anyway. It's about a PI investigating a crime in the not-too-distant future in my hometown, Chicago.

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.

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

Thy Dunjon Quest is a project I periodically work on, with the intent to be on the market, ad-supported.  It's a stick-figure endless dungeon crawl that takes itself about as seriously as it sounds.

A travel essay/article; and the last thing I ever wrote at Eastern IL University. The crux of the essay is my trip to England and the slow transformation of feeling like an awkward outsider to being one of a close-knit team of friends. It's a little corny, skimming it now over 10 years later to write this summary.

The longest piece I've written that I've felt compelled to share; the Undiscovered Facet is a fictional world set inside another fictional world (the computer game, Ultima Online). Featuring fictionalized versions of other real players' fictional characters, this novella is so meta, you'll think google bots wrote it.

A free-form tree built in 3D Studio Max. One of the last models I built, this one has some texture work along with 2D planes with leaves to create the illusion of full foliage.
