Half-elf description

I’ve looked through the different works and various forms of elves and what their half-breed children are like. Half Breeds in some stories look like their human parent, almost completely and I’ll explain why below… In other stories, they are mixed, though in most, they have slightly pointed ears, but otherwise look like humans. So far, there is one consistency; elven genes are recessive … Read More Half-elf description

More musical inspiration!

As I put the final touches on Divinity, this song was playing quite often. The sound of the male and female vocals mixed with a very unusual style of music really got the ideas flowing. This is Van Canto… sort of an Acappella Metal band…
