Yeah, I'm still around and checking in occasionally. (But lurking, because I
don't have anything new to share, haha. I do have things I've started on, but
they're very much in the early WIP stage, and might not get completed.)

Ancient mythologies are interesting, and the lore (ideas, creatures, demons,
etc.) often makes its way into videos games, such as the Castlevania series. I
tend to think such beings represent psychological aspects of ourselves since,
like dreams, myths come from /something/, even if it's just the wreckage of
half-baked thoughts washing ashore ;)

I'm looking forward to the sword! Btw, the Sumerian vase was neat.
