i never thought i’d die fighting side by side with an elf.
It’s times like these with role-players like this that make being apart of the mass effect fandom an even greater privilege. I recommend this blog to anyone who wants to see a role-play done right. I think that because some of the written responses make you think and challenge you to think about what it means to live makes this tumblr blog even better because it expands beyond just the Mass Effect Universe—it branches into ours.
Oh all the Primarch feels that are welling up within me. We need a game called, “Primarch.” And this person should be part of the writing team leading the charge to make a game for not only Primarch Victus fans—but turian fans. (I can never have enough turians in my life.)
whenever somebody says like “so what did you do today?” just look off into the distance and say “the right thing”
Today I am going on a Lord of the Rings binge—I need that trilogy in my life again on my screen. This is going to happen after I clean my room that is. *looks around and sees two shirts on the floor* Yeah, my room is way too dirty for me. It is an excuse for me to listen to 8tracks again while I pick up those two shirts.

The Marked Prince Oratous | 08.22.14
I decided to introduce one of my side characters from the arc “The Silent Soul from the Far East”: Oratous, often known as the Marked Prince (pronounced with a long o). He does not play a major role in the whole of the story but he is a character where you get information on the state of things beyond where the company is traveling since there is a lot of unrest in the far east.
He is the elven prince of the kingdom nestled next to the Nathos borders and the precarious beginnings of some of the elven borders. (Thanks to marauders and rogue factions trying to gain control of regions.) He is unique for an elf in that his eyeball coloring is not white but a charcoal black and his pupils are white. Oratous was said to be born with “the moon in his eye” and many believed his eyes an omen to dark days for their kingdom. You cannot see it in this drawing but his right eye is also a pale blue that is almost clear in color. This too was also suppose to be a sign—his left eye being the sun and his right eye being the moon. The days of the golden past and the beginnings of the shrouded future. People often were so unsettled by his eyes that he often wore hoods to cover his upper face to prevent people from seeing his eyes.
Nowadays he spends most of his time locked in his part of the palace pouring over books, crafting potions, or practicing magic. It is not until 1/4 of the way through the arc that he starts leaving his towers. He’s bitter over his eyes and he often keeps his hood up. The company meet him a few times when he sneaks out of the kingdom in search of answers on how to help his people who are being pressured by conquerors. He sneaks out because he is technically not allowed out of the city because his father deemed him to precious to expose to the world or be allowed to roam freely.
I referenced some of harteus’ mini tutorials for noses and faces (mainly for coloring/shading tips) at her tumblr. I also looked up some gold rings to get an idea of how to color golden jewelry. I realized pretty quickly that shading “gold” with pencil is a lot harder than simply coloring gold with actual colors.
