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.

This Drupal 7 module represented several firsts for me: Making an ajax call, developing an admin configuration page for a module, defining a block via a module, and passing variables to JS from a drupal module.

A poem about a former love interest, who shall remain safely anonymous. Although it sounds abstract, each line has specific meaning.

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!

Here, for your consideration. All kinds of Ultima Online-related thinga-ma-jigs. Screenshots, drawings, animated gifs. Whatever your heart can dream of listed right here in no particular order or logic.

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

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).

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.

Unfortunately in my efforts to rebuild my site, my memory is foggy on this short story, but I believe it came out of a Meetup "Just Write" session challenge. The character is extremely loosely based on a real cab driver, although I'm sure he wasn't named Nugget, and takes a short, humorous stab at explaining his motives and personality.

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.

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.

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

"The Elements of Roleplay" is an RP guide written for Ultima Online, which garnered a lot of attention and re-posting. Although it's written specifically for UO, the suggestions and advice here could certainly be applied to any pen&paper game or computer game with player-to-player roleplaying elements (the few that still exist).
