Three new “The Network” character sketches have been added to the gallery…
A quick explanation on what they’re about…
- The topless guy is Alex, the young programmer who created the virtual reality game The Network. He has a long list of mental issues including anorexia, which leads him to covering areas like his chest and stomach in bandages to create a slimmer outline when wearing clothes. He’s also severely depressed, and when he’s not taking suicidal risks he’s flipping between self-hatred and a vicious rage. Great guy to have in charge of the world’s biggest MMORPG, right?
- The one with two characters in it shows DT, the Network’s youngest moderator in her cat-girl avatar, and hacker Muvo in his modified demon avatar. These two have a rough start in the first book, but with the game’s owner acting a bit crazy, a moderator could use a hacker as a safety net, and a hacker can always use someone on the inside.
- Then there’s DT on her own, looking a bit annoyed. She’s a weapons-master character, which means she can come up with any kind of weapon to suit her tactics, but she’s weaker with each weapon than a specialist would be and has poor strength and defense. The dark swirly business means she’s about to yank a weapon out of mid-air, and that messy scribble in her left hand is a cable for connecting into the game’s admin control panel and accessing her various order-keeping tools (like a big hammer).
Easter went by fast. Now I’ve gt dinner to make, and the clocks are ticking down to work in the morning. Have a good night!
