Welcome Mat

Why hello there, and welcome! I'm Cryptix, and I have no idea who you are, but you've clearly stumbled upon my humble blog somehow or another, so I suppose I ought to do the polite thing and tell you what to expect from it.

The point of this blog isn't to post videos, copy-pasta amusing things from elsewhere on the internets, rant about one current event or another, or go on at length about some trivial aspect of my life that I really shouldn't be expounding upon to total strangers in any case. I'm not so much into those sorts of things. What I am into is writing, drawing, and roleplaying -- and it's those aspects of my life that I'm looking to combine into this blog. My plan is to novelize the adventures of my roleplaying characters and post them here, perhaps adding pictures when the muse strikes me. If I'm lucky, I might even get a couple of comics out.

Most of these posts will be from the first-person perspective of one of my characters, and who it is will be somehow specified in the title of the post. Once in awhile I might post something for myself, in which case I'll put a nice big 'OOC' there in the title. More housekeeping and organizational tricks might pop up in the future. I'll keep you posted.

Unless specified otherwise, these POV characters and any art that goes up belongs to me. I lay no claim to the events or settings, being as these are (largely) pen-and-paper rpgs. Also, unless stated otherwise, any phone numbers, addresses, websites, usernames, or emails that are mentioned in an in-character post are entirely fictional. Also, there will be cursing as I feel it's necessary. I don't censor myself or my characters in text.

No, I won't put a tl;dr version of this down. This is a writing blog. If you can't stand reading four reasonably-sized paragraphs, you probably don't belong here.

One last thing: Feedback and constructive criticisms are not only welcomed but adored.

Editing as of 22 November 2012: Yeah, that bit in the second paragraph about how this isn't for going on at length about trivial aspects of my life? Ignore that. Also the whole third paragraph, ignore that one too.

I'd just rewrite this post in its entirety, but I kind of like to preserve things for posterity.
