Anima: Allette

“Did you find anything?” Catherine asked, calling down from the top of the cliff as they made their way out of the ship. “Not sure,” Tebryn called back before anyone else could answer. “Tell you when we get up there.” Keith was first up the rope, scrambling up the rocks to the grassy top in …

Tebryn – New Art!

So after several months of gaming in the Anima world, I finally have an idea of what Tebryn looks like in the flesh. And the fantastic Annah Lang (no relation, sadly), and player of Arkara has created this amazing piece of artwork for me! She’s already taken on the all the art for the Mass Effect …

Drimi (Mass Effect Collision, Chapter 10)

Gunnedah Hospital was a private hospital in Zakera Ward that had been little more than a human clinic before the war, and had been the recipient of a good portion of charity money raised for the fight against the reapers at that time. Much of the money that had come in after the attack on …

The Endurance (Mass Effect Collision, Chapter 9)

The ship was…new. And kind of shiny, with a sleek, dark finish that bore no notable markings. It was modern. Ultra-modern, even… “She’s a prototype,” Sync said as he ushered them up the central ramp and into the fairly impersonal central area. “Bedrooms aft, pick one just…stay out of the locked one please. Captains quarters on the …

Vivace: Restaurant Review

Where: Level 1, 50 High Street, Auckland City Cuisine: Mediterranean Food: 5 Service: 4 Ambiance: 4 Value for Money: 4 Overall score: 4.25/5 When the word ‘honeycomb’ is written onto a menu, I instinctively think of the confectionary—take some sugar, heat it to a caramel, add sodium bicarb and watch it chunk up into a …

Anima: The Ship that Came In

The Church was abandoned—that was really the only way to describe it. The doors were shut tight and only a track from the road to the belltower through the waist-high grass showed the place to be visited at all—and probably by Catherine if Max was reading the situation correctly. The small graveyard was around the …

Anima Interlude: Shadows Within Dreams

An Interlude Dieter Helsm entered the dark hall and looked across to the tall man at the far side, staring out the window over the dark courtyard beyond. At the man’s feet a black panther stretched languidly, raising his head to observe the intruder. It’s master, however, stayed as still as a statue. “Welcome, number …

Momo: Restaurant Review

Where: 115-117 Lt Bourke Street, Melbourne CBD Cuisine: Japanese Hot Pot / Sukiyaki Food: 3 Service: 4 Ambience: 5 Value for Money: 2 Overall Score: 3.5/5 Walk into Momo on Little Bourke Street on the weekend and you’ll find yourself waiting for a table. And to be honest, I’m not sure why. The food isn’t …

Anima: The Airship Part II

It would have been a slaughter. It should have been a slaughter. By rights it would have taken a few minutes to put everyone to the blade and take the airship. And it would have been had the flustered Merchant who Tebryn had already christened ‘Weasel’ in his head hadn’t brought along his rangy bodyguard. …

Anima: The Airship Part I

If he had been conventionally sane, he’d never have taken the job. On the other hand it paid well and the chance to thumb his nose at the grand Prince Lucrecio, was too good to pass up, even if the Prince had no idea he was doing it. That was, after all, the safest way …
