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.

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 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.

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

An award-winning essay about the Blue Hotel and its undertones of Tolstoy vs. Darwinism and the East vs. the West. If you haven't read Stephen Crane this probably won't be understandable.

Representing the last module I wrote while I worked for Symmetri Marketing, this module attempts to provide a site-wide solution to a problem that arose after Google Analytics switched to Universal Analytics: How to capture campaign parameters and save it with webform submissions.

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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

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.
