At Home – In the Woods

This issue of “At Home” is quite a bit late, but features our favourite fugitive!

at home - in the woods 1After a close call with the police, Moran left the city to seek shelter in a cabin deep in the woods. While it might not be the safest place on earth, he might get some rest in there… unless the owners show up.

at home - in the woods 2Finding the key in the bird house didn’t prove much of a problem for Moran and he carefully enters. The small lodge is stuffed with furniture from all over last century and in the kitchen, the fugitive finds enough canned food to keep him sustained for a while.
There’s dust all over the place and the air is a bit stale, but the only inhabitant seems to be a half-wild cat.

at home - in the woods 3After sharing a can of baked beans, Moran and the cat decide to ignore each other for now. Finally, he finds a comfy spot where he can settle down and continue his search for his identity.

at home - in the woods 4Moran can’t help and jumps at every noise outside, checking for cars or other dangers.

Ion – Growing Pains

ion - growing painsGrowing up isn’t easy and Ion is at a difficult age. Sometimes, he feels like an adult. On the other hand, he is not yet ready to let go of the treasures of his childhood. Luckily, he has a cosy spot to keep all things that have been and still are dear to him. Little trinkets he collected all over the world, while travelling with his parents.
Being an avid gamer, Ion also collects retro video games, and unlike many adult hoarders, he still enjoys playing them.

At Home – The Artist’s Loft

at home - artists loft 1Welcome to the third issue of “At Home”! Today we’re visiting an unknown artist’s loft, furnished with items from the current round of The Challenge. This month’s theme is factory/industrial.

at home - artists loft 2The entrance area serves as a photo studio, office and gallery.

at home - artists loft 3Behind a low wall is a fully furnished appartment. The kitchen may be simple, but it is functional and able to satisfy the artist’s humble worldly needs – there’s beer! But what about the bust of Chanda? Maybe that will give a hint about the artist’s identity.

Allow me to introduce… Nathan

nathan - rainy day

Name: Nathan
Age: 29
Born: a jungle in another world
Occupation: tinkerer, involuntary air pirate, planestrider

Nathan’s mother was a wild jungle fae, his father a human clockmaker who served as a soldier in the colonies. Nathan grew up with his father, learned his trade and took over the clockmaker’s shop after his father died. One day, he was captured by air pirates who held him prisoner and forced him to maintain the engines of their airship for several years, before Nathan could escape.
He does not remember how he ended up in this world, but it looks like he has settled in here quite well.

Nathan dreads cold and rainy weather, his mother’s blood is strong in his veins and he can’t wait for summer.

OOC information:

Nathan is a character I could go on about for ages. Or write a book about. I have actually started, but meh, I’m lazy and stuff. I don’t use him very often in RP, but I still like him a lot.
