About

I'm Alex White, I am an avid writer, artist, musician, and aspiring scientist. Almost anything to do with creative expression, I'm in. But don't dub me as an art guy, I enjoy a lot of different subjects that are art forms in and of themselves. Such as Mechanics, welding, engineering, Parkour, tennis, other sports, physics, reading, etc. All of it falls under a different category and I have to admit all of it interests me.Read more about me »

Averno Update

Thursday, October 20, 2011 0 comments

Hey All! I have written a little bit more on my story, "Averno", but I haven't finished Chapter 1 yet. So I don't want to post it and have it cut off instantly and ruin the entire thing for you. So instead, I will post the prologue, which takes place 5 years before the main story-line.

This sets up the story and introduces a bit of the evil entities. It's kinda hard to explain so you'll just have to read and find out for yourself what happens.

:)

Prologue


“Such is the Gift of Absolute Power”

                A monotonous chant rang through the halls of a ruined temple in modern day Mexico. Lost to the ages long ago, it has been reclaimed by three souls in order to revive Averno himself. Once an idol of engineering and scientific perfection, the temple was now overrun by jungle; vines twisted in and out of the stone and tree roots had made the walkways uneven and broken. The chant grew louder as one descended the staircase into the depths of the temple, each word of unknown tongue reverberated off the walls, producing an acoustic stage effect. Farther inside one would see masses of hooded figures, each swaying slightly. The candles they held made their shadows dance among uneven stone and shadowed faces. The congregation was focused around a circular platform of white marble, it was the only thing white in the entire room. Atop the platform stood 3 young children, the oldest being fourteen and the youngest being eleven, each child wore a hooded robe and held a long silver dagger that flashed a red tint amongst the dancing candlelight. One by one each child lowered their hood.

                Their faces were blank, eyes the color of mist, glazed over and emotionless; each child held the image of youth, but their expressions were anything but those of innocent blood. The oldest, Lucyn, moved forward, a strand of fair brown hair shifting from above his eyebrow, and placed a black gem into the center of what appeared to be a pedestal made of ancient stone; it seemed out of place compared to the white marble that the kids stood upon. Once the gem was placed the pedestal shook violently, sending dust and bits of decaying vegetation to the floor, but the children never wavered; their eyes were still glazed over, giving the impression of utter subordination. Despite appearances, these children were not human, nor were they controlling their actions.

As the pedestal disappeared into the floor, the chant grew louder and the congregation began to sway violently, as if dodging arrows, not peacefully singing. Then, Lucyn raised his dagger to his throat, a single drop of blood rolled down his neck and the other 2 children followed; both of them also pricked their necks, causing blood to drop to the floor in slow, painful, drops. Once the first drop of Lucyn’s blood hit the floor, the mass of hooded figures vanished in a whirling mist of black smoke, shrouding the interior of the temple in a thick fog. And for a second, just a second, you could see a flash of depression and emptiness flash across the children’s faces, the last bit of their humanity expressed as their lives flashed before their eyes. With a quick flick of his wrist Lucyn slit his throat, the others followed with him. Lucyn felt his knees go weak and he fell to the floor, Crimson blood spilled from his wound as the last bit of life faded from his eyes and stained the marble floor.

                The ritual was complete, the three fated children of Evil had been slain at precisely the same moment, their spirits would return to Averno and he would become whole again. For this night marked the beginning of an age long war between Good and Evil. With a resounding crack the platform exploded and an entity of swirling black mist emerged from the rubble;



Then All was Silent

Fun Stuff!

Hey all! I have gotten back into Parkour and am actually going running with two friends this weekend. not only that, but I've had some renewed muse and have been collaboratively writing with a friend. It's no where near post-ready yet, so I'll just tell you what it is about.

The story is about 3 orphans who are actually manifestations of a Divine God. now in order for the Good god and the Evil God to battle, these three orphans must be killed at the same exact time to make God whole again. The story details their adventure to find one another to kill themselves and save the world, but in the end, since you are my loyal followers I can let you in on a secret, the God fails and splits back into the same 3 kids. Only then do they realize that they are stronger than the Divine Entity when separate.

So, that's my life... Keep tuned for an update on my upcoming story "Averno".

Well, I finally started to write on the Mabinogi Review. But honestly, I'm losing interest in this job. I don't know why, but I haven't been feeling the Muse. I shall write a few more, but I don't see it lasting too long.

On a more joyous note, somebody like one of my AMV's so much that they made a remix of it. He asked permission and everything; so check out his remixed version with a cool dubstep beat!

And, I have a little renewed lust for my series/novel "Interrogation" so expect some more of that too! Thank you all for tuning in and reading!

Regards,

Lethargic...

Wednesday, July 20, 2011 0 comments

I can call it what I want, but I've been pretty lazy lately. I'm out of shape, 40 pushups and I'm winded... And not only that, I'm working on a mabinogi review and I haven't even started typing it yet. Yeah, no shit. Good thing they held off on the NXGrind Grand Opening or I would be screwed. Anyways, I hope to have that Review up next week for your viewing pleasure. So 'till next time, Enjoy!

P.S. Hellgate. Google it.

Minecraft!

Ok guys, I found my drug. It is... *Cue Dramatic Music* Minecraft! The game is so fun, you get to mine ore and build little buildings. Like currently, I'm building a hidden mayan civilization out of 1 meter dirt blocks. And I literally can not stop playing! I play 'till about 2 in the morning and wake up at about 10 and play for as long as time permits. Seriously addicting. You should try it out. ;)

[Review] Dragon Nest Closed Beta

Friday, June 24, 2011 2 comments

Well, the review is finished! It has gotten a lot of good feedback already, but I know it could have been better. Anyways, enjoy the review and check out the site I wrote it for; NXGrind.com. Which is music by gamers, for gamers.

Overall Rating: 8.5:/10

Overall I really enjoyed playing the game. It was a blast to be an archer and a great experience! I can say I’m proud to be a Closed Beta Tester and I am very ecstatic about the Beta opening to the public, truly a fun game. Sure, a few flaws here and there, but sometimes you just have to look at the gameplay; did they really try to make it original? I believe so. Hopefully my Eye and Hand coordination will increase with the Cross-Hair system and I will learn to push past the fact that I cannot record wondrous videos of this game. So, I hope you all enjoyed the review, and thank you for taking the time to read it; if you didn’t read it, then think of the ‘Overall Rating’ as a TL;DR. So until next time, see you in game.

So, Check out NX Grind, leave a comment for me. What can I do better? What would you like to see more of? Screenshots? Videos? Or just say that my writing sucks Black Dick, anything will be greatly appreciated.

Dragon Nest Review

Wednesday, June 22, 2011 1 comments

Well, the Dragon Nest review is all typed up, just need some dotting of i's and crossing of t's and making of the video for your viewing pleasure. But what I can do is give you a sneak preview, Enjoy!

First Impression
My first Impression of Dragon Nest was that it was a game for kids. With a cartoony kind of animation and some cheesy quest names such as the “Gobfather” I was sure this was going to be a game orienteered for twelve year old kids. However, what sets this apart from a lot of games following this colorful stereotype is gameplay. Before the Closed Beta Testing I began to look into videos made by Korean gamers that had already obtained the game a couple years before, and Gameplay is what stuck out the most. Following a popular trend among large game companies Dragon Nest is an Action MMORPG, meaning that gameplay is not point and click, it’s interactive, entertaining, and most of all, adrenaline-pumping. I will go farther into detail on the Gameplay section, but I just want to assure everyone that this game is far from ordinary in terms of gameplay.
