This Hollow World: The Greater Demons
The Greater Demons are the five first demons who have existed since Lokir was first created. They act as teachers for those they deem worthy. Many consider the Greater Demons to be nothing more than myths and legends, refusing to believe that anything could live that long without being known to the whole world. The Greater Demons are varied in appearance, personality, and knowledge. Each of them lives on one of the continents in the Dark Sphere, roaming its surface and avoiding contact with all but those who either seek them out or deserve to find them regardless of intention.

Fae’jura, The Infinity Serpent: Fae’jura is the Greater Demon that dwells within the depths of Vankir’s ocean. As her name suggests, Fae’jura is a giant, serpentine demon. Giant does not seem to accurately portray her size, she has never been seen in her entirety. She received her name because she does not seem to have an end to her body. Her head alone is forty feet long and thirty f

Teras Seminary Sporting Event: Zhonya's Steeplerun
Zhonya stepped up to the starting line of the 3000m steeplechase event.  She inhaled and exhaled slowly as she dropped down into the starter position.  To her right was a dryad from Gaia Academy, the girl was a full head and shoulders taller than the porcelain girl and she had a confident grin on her wooden face.  To Zhonya’s left was a sleek, silver werewolf from Luna University who was in her full beast form.  The wolf scoffed, “Don’t feel bad if you lose, dolly.  You never had a chance.”
Zhonya felt her eyes burn red but she didn’t say anything.  She was better than that to give into such goading.  She scanned the crowd for her sister, the one who stuck with her and helped her train for this event.  The teal-haired girl floated above the crowd and a giant sign floated above her, cheering on Zhonya.  The porcelain girl smiled and thought back to the weeks preceding the event…

The Races of Lokir
Archons, The Energy Beings
Archons are one of the most reclusive races on Lokir. Living almost exclusively in the Golden Sphere, most people’s only experience they receive are the aloof mercenaries from the floating cities and the exiled and outcast that are abandoned by their fellows.
Archons are energy beings, people made of living magical energy. They craft ornate suits of armor to give them physical form and contain their abilities. Most suits are floating pieces of metal surrounding the Archon and most of them do not walk, preferring to float just off of the ground. The energy that makes up an Archon varies from individual to individual, they can be anywhere from a human shaped bolt of lightning to a skeleton of molten metal. One thing all Archons have in common is a core, a floating prism which serves to hold the energy together. The size of an Archon varies wildly. They are as large as they want to be limited only by power and the ability to make a suit large enough, with

Sinclair's Absolution: Tribal Warfare Part 2
Jock gently kicked the half asleep Stubby in his ribs. Grinning, he nodded over to the cave, mouthing 'bed'. Grumbling, the NCO dragged himself upright, picked up his rifle and staggered to the cave, leaving Jock to take up the sniper shift, a lho stick gently burning from his mouth. She cast a slight glace back to the three tribals sitting outside of the cave, his eyes gently running over the curves of the two females. They may be burnt to all hell, but at least they kept their curves, he thought to himself. Tapping off the ash from his lho stick, he rolled back into his sniper position. He knew not to try and use his usual charm on these ladies, heck if the didn't work of Jet or T, why would they work on these two.
Later on in the night, Jock's gaze drifted over to where the three tribal officers were sitting, only to find that they were no longer there.
"Throne, they are quiet when they wanne be." he muttered under his breath, returning his aim to the dunes around him.

Sinclair's Absolution: Tribal Warfare Part 1
A harsh wind tore through the city. Particles of dust whipped up in the wind tore against the buildings, shattering windows and destroying wooden doors. The howling gale roared as it smashed against the defenders as they bunkered down into the buildings they held. The attackers were affected by the gale, but they continued to march through the storm as it slashed against them. One of the defenders risked a glance over the window ledge of the room he held, a heavy sniper rifle in his hands.
"Frak, the storm isn't even slowing them." he muttered, as the sand smashed against his goggles and basic cowl. The wolf icon painted across his left shoulder was scuffed and torn by the sandstorm, the long cloak over his shoulders now fluttering heavily as the wind tore through the cracks in the walls. He looked back to the squad huddled behind him. Sending a series of hand signals to the group, another soldier slinked up beside him, a set of binoculars around her neck. The other soldier peered thro

QUARANTINE: A Tale of Scylla
Scylla stirred in her lair.  She listened to the constant dripping noise that echoed through the dark labyrinth she called home.  She lifted her head and stared at her reflection in the pool she rested in.  The face that stared back was almost human.  It had all the proportions of a woman’s face except for its mouth.  The edges of the mouth stretched back to her ears and were lined with needle-like teeth.  Her eyes were vertical slit pupils and her skin was deathly pale.  Her head spoke of once having hair, but only patches of stringy strands of hair remained.  Below her neck, her soft, pale skin hardened into glistening scales.  Her claws dug into the mossy ground as she lifted her torso off of the ground.  Her torso was still obviously feminine and her fingers were tipped with wickedly curved claws.  Below her waist, a thick trunk snaked outward and disappeared into the shadows behind her.
Her head snapped sideways at a sou

This Hollow World: Lokir Overview
Lokir is a realm that has a dark void in its center.  Surrounding the void are three layers of a world.  The first layer is made up of five great, floating continents of stone with great chasms to the void instead of oceans.  The second layer floats ten miles above the first and blots out light from the seven stars surrounding Lokir.  The first layer is mostly shrouded in darkness with packets of starlight where the layers above do not block out the stars.  The second layer is much like the first, seven floating continents that have no oceans between them.  There is no day and night cycle on the second layer.  Just moments where the layer above does not block out the stars and moments when it does.  The third and final layer is made up of four great islands which float fifteen miles above the second layer.
The First Layer is commonly called the Dark Sphere.  The Dark Sphere is a cruel and harsh place to live.  Most of the inhabitants li

From Mind to Heart to Hands
Let your thoughts flow
from your mind to

Ponder in your heart
what you hear today.
Let your love flow
from your heart to

Show that you care
by living your love.

Let Him speak through you

So for those of you who remember me before I vanished off of the face of the Earth: I didn't die.  I had lost interest in continuing with using Deviant Art.  But something reminded me about all the fun I had with the site in the past.  So I've decided to start over.  I'm more mature (I hope), more experienced, and better equipped for using this site.

I've also decided that in order to start anew, I need to destroy the old.  I've made a new account :iconthefaceless96: where I will be posting all of my future works.  If there are people I befriended in the past who want to renew that friendship, follow me to that other site and I'd be more than happy to catch up with you.

Things I plan on posting: Warhammer 40k stories, pictures of my actual 40k (and other wargame) miniatures as I get them, various sprite/pencil/digital arts as I try to get back into practice with them, stories in custom settings (now actually going to post stories in one of them before abandoning it and making another one), and lastly, rules for an RPG I'm currently attempting to make.

Hope to see you again.

I got over my paranoia and decided to write here. I'm a highschooler who does a little writing and gmod art. I'm starving for recognition and attention when it comes to online communities. I feel that if someone just takes the time to take a look at my stuff, I'll be that step closer to being famous, (or something like that) I'm open for tips on my art.

*sigh* I'm sorry mate.  I'm quickly starting to lose interest in the group.  No motivation to continue, no desire to do anything with it.

Might just be depression right now talking, but I think I'm going to leave the group.

Let me be clearer.  It isn't you, the members, or even the group itself.  I'm just losing interest in TF2 in general.  I just don't find the universe to be interesting enough to hold my attention and I don't want you to have a spot filled by an inactive member.
