Signal, Week 4 – Tropes, Tedium, and Classical [J]RPGs

Posted on

I’ve never really been shy about the fact that Iravelon, particularly Shades of Resonance, is heavily influenced by the role playing games of the 90’s and early 2000’s.  I mentioned before a specific influence being Golden Sun, but I’m sure that more references would be (or already are) apparent whether I’m consciously aware of them or not.  I would go as far as to say the fact that Iravelon is influenced by so many great … Continue reading

Thinking Fourth Dimensionally – The Pitfalls and Possibilities of Time Travel via Back To The Future “Wait a minute… waitaminute Doc… You’re telling me you built a time machine… out of a DeLorean?” Time travel has been a fascination of mine for most of my life.  One of my favorite movies (or series of movies) growing up was Back To The Future – not just because of the great characters, comedic moments, or even the … Continue reading

Signal, Week 3 – The Final Frontier

Posted on

Wait, it’s Saturday.  Crap! I spent a good bit of time earlier in the week writing up a few posts, but I haven’t had a chance to finish most of them or I want to wait until later to put out there. So this week I’m going to say this: Iravelon takes place on a planet. No Mans Sky, which has planets that you can go to, came out with a serious update in the … Continue reading

Signal, Week 2 – Unleash – 7/20/18

Posted on

Since the beginning, I haven’t been shy about what some of Iravelon’s influences are when I’m asked.  I tend to think some of the best games and stories are built off of ideas and concepts from their predecessors in one way or another, and Iravelon is no exception.  One of my major influences goes back about 17 years to a GBA RPG you might’ve heard of – Golden Sun may be said to be nothing … Continue reading

Signal, Week 1 – Let’s Begin – 7/13/18

Posted on

So, just to put it out there, I’m going to start these weekly posts without much of an introduction.  No “WhAt’S uP iNtErNeT, it’s YA BOI” or anything of the sort.  These weekly posts (I’m calling it ‘Signal’ for right now) have two real reasons behind them: To give some kind of update about progress on Iravelon, some background knowledge about Iravelon and its story/world/characters/etc, or info/updates on my other projects/ideas related to Iravelon.  Maybe … Continue reading

Weekly

Posted on

Hey folks! I’m gearing up to start a [hopefully] weekly, or at lest bi-weekly update schedule on the site here, for what I’m working on.  Not necessarily long updates – some might be just a few paragraphs with some pics, some might be longer (maybe even some video?).  Typically Iravelon-related, although I have other ideas and projects I’m also going to put up here as well (more on that in a minute).  I’ve typically been … Continue reading

Update

Still Here

Posted on

Been a long time, hasn’t it? Iravelon still exists, it’s not dead.  Well, it’s been half dead, sort of, but never dead. More to come soon.  Here are a few random screenshots, some you might recognize, some you might not. ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]
