The Well of Sorrows (Backwards)

As with every group of whispers, they often are thrown in as background noise and reversed. So I took the liberty to reverse the Well of Sorrows whispers and clean up the audio. A mantra of whispers going in circles, sung by a Well.

Some of the Whispers Heard:

Go to the Dirth
Mythal speaks for the elves
Travel Far
She speaks for the elves
She’s abelas
She speaks for them both

Also, as a pleasant add on to this oh, so not creepy audio. The Dirth is another name for The Exalted Plains, as a Dalish elf there will tell you. The Exalted Plains/The Dirthavaren (The Promise) was were the last of elven nation fell.

So just a tip for any artists/DnD players, Heroforge.com lets you make custom figurines with different races, bodies, poses, outfits, weapons, ect. The main purpose of this is to buy your own custom figurines, which is cool itself. Something else that I use it for is using it to make the character that you want to draw, and having a 3d model reference. Its great as an artists reference.

And if youre not an artist, but you want to show people what you think your character would look like, you can make one and send it to people. That way if you cant draw, you can still give people a visual representation.

And if you have the money, and are a big DnD nerd, you could always create your character and have your own physical figurine of your DnD character!

Its super helpful, and fun no matter what kind of interests you have.

So here’s a very interesting line that Cole says about Fen’harel in Trespasser:

It does make me wonder what it could mean to be worshipped as a god in, in Solas’s words, “a world where imagination shapes reality”

Worship makes you more.


morrigan, forever in my heart

also guys !! a wee while ago i created a piece for a wee book called video games for good and finally the kickstarter has launched!! it’s all about celebrating games and the positive effects they’ve had on our lives!! check it xxx

Syriannas, completely fascinated by Dorian’s sleeping face in the early hours at Skyhold.

I got bored and did some math where I multiplied the mean of dragon lengths by the fraction of that length that makes up a dragon’s height in FR. It’s rough, but it’s the best approximation I’ve got of size.

If a design is yours and you are uncomfortable with it on this chart, please let me know and I’ll take it down.


Well, okay my new years resolution was to actually post my art instead of hoarding it like a weird dragon so. Here’s some homestuck doodles from 2016 that I never got around to posting!
