Ratpack @ The Roadhouse Bar

Ratpack @ The Roadhouse Bar

With ease and a practiced flick of her wrist, Snot flips the switchblade in her hand open and closed, over and over again. Slow at first, the action became a blur as she increased the speed. With a loud sniff, Snot wiped her nose on the back of her arm. Yes, that’s how she got her name.

Her eyes scanned the room, noting the position of every patron in the roadhouse bar. Rats, Mice, even a Squirrel or two sat at the makeshift tables and chairs they scavenged after the Apocalypse.

The Apocalypse – the day when the humans destroyed their own species and elevated others into higher forms of life. The Mice were the thinkers; the planners. The Rats, Snot’s ancestors, were the muscle; the heavy lifters. Squirrels were the scavengers; the trackers who found human items and made them useful again.

A couple Rabbits trolled the room for, well, what rabbits did the best. One spotted Snot and moved seductively across the room. It sidled up close to Snot and nuzzled her neck. With a sweep of her arm, Snot pushed the horny Rabbit away. The warning look she shot the Rabbit told it not to return again.

It’s not that Snot was against afternoon sex or cross species mingling, but she was on duty and took her responsibilities seriously. Especially today, when a contingency of Weasels was scheduled to arrive to meet with the local Mice leaders. Snot would not allow any distractions.

The survivors of the Apocalypse were determined not to make the same mistakes as the humans, but even in their un-evolved form, animals were also territorial and bloodthirsty.

Speaking of the devil, a pair of oily looking Ferrets stroll into the bar and survey the surroundings. Just like the Rats, the Ferrets were enforcers; bodyguards to the Weasels in their own little part of this messed up world.

Apparently satisfied with the room, they step back and hold the makeshift door open of Wartman, the leader of the Weasel encampment up north. Macro, the leader of Snot’s community, stands to greet the arriving leader.

Today was about peace, cooperation and trade. That didn’t mean Snot wasn’t prepared for trouble as her eyes continued to scan the room. It was the Rat’s nature to watch for danger. After all, they were all animals in one fashion of another.

The evolved species that developed from the human’s global devastation were determined to live together in peace. They would not follow in the footsteps of humanity and allow hatred and aggression to rule the Earth again.

Or with evolution, was human nature far behind?

Christmas – Dark Edition – Krampus

Eclipse Magazine // December 2021 // Page 160-167 // https://issuu.com/eclipsemagazinesl/docs/eclipse_magazine_december_2021

For the December Issue of the Eclipse Magazine, I certainly wanted to do something Christmas related. But if you know me, I can not be something sweet and shiny, it had to be something with a dark twist. So the “Krampus” tradition came to my mind.

To explain “Krampus” I would like to quote Wikipedia to make sure I get nothing wrong with translating my German version *winks*

“The Krampus is a horned, anthropomorphic figure in Central and Eastern Alpine folklore who, during the Christmas season, scares children who have misbehaved. Assisting Saint Nicholas, the pair visit children on the night of the 5th December, with Saint Nicholas rewarding the well-behaved children with modest gifts such as oranges, dried fruit, walnuts and chocolate, whilst the badly behaved ones only receive punishment from Krampus with birch rods.
The origin of the figure is unclear; some folklorists and anthropologists have postulated it as having pre-Christian origins. In traditional parades and in such events as the Krampuslauf (English: Krampus run), young men participate dressed as Krampus and attempt to scare the audience with their antics. Such events occur annually in most Alpine towns. Krampus is featured on holiday greeting cards called Krampuskarten.
Since 1984, the character has become better known globally, having been portrayed in Hollywood horror films. Almost unknown before this time, Krampus has begun to become part of American popular culture.”
[- Wikipedia -]

Don’t forget to take look at the actual Eclipse Magazine as they do have a lot of amazing content this month – yes there you can find all the amazing sweet and shiny Christmas things as well *winks* I hope you nevertheless enjoy your Christmas, even with me teasing with the darker vibes!

! Merry Christmas !

We are the warriors that built this town…

As a child you would wait
And watch from far away
But you always knew that you’d be the one
That work while they all play
In youth you’d lay
Awake at night and scheme
Of all the things that you would change
But it was just a dream

Don’t you speak for me!

TUNES

Drown every truth in an ocean of lies
Label me bitch because I dare to draw my own line
Burn every bridge and build a wall in my way
But I will use my voice
Whether you like it or not, you’re gonna take what I got
If we can’t talk about it, we’ll just keep drowning in it
Give me credit or not
I give a lot, give a lot
But don’t you speak for me
No, don’t you speak for me

You’ll never know the poetry you’ve stirred in me.

Having a Break

LeLUTKA did it! They already have released 2 waves of their updated Evolution line heads. The new 3.1 version was released already for Lilly, Ryn, Fleur, Nuri, Lake, Nova and Erin – which I chose for today’s post. Before Avalon came out, Erin was my everyday favorite head and you can imagine how excited I was when I saw Erin got the update – I certainly had to try that one out first! I promise I will showcase them one after another step by step 😉

So what is new to the 3.1 updates… lemme quote LeLUTKA’s press release:

HUD:

– Evolution Classic heads have now been updated to 3.1.

– You can now find EVO and EVO X toggle buttons across all heads.

– Option to blend or mask lashes have now been updated.

– Save slots have been removed for Eye Socket, Lashes, HD Brows, HD Eyelids, and HD Lips as we now have a Style HUD.

– We now have a total of 18 eyes, an additional 6 have been added.

– We now have a total of 6 eyebrows, an additional 2 have been added.

– We now have a total of 8 eye shadows, an additional 2 have been added.

– Alpha Mode has been added to the lip area, when you use the Mask option, you will be able to manipulate how much of your lipstick with show.

– Layer Materials (None) HD Complex has been added under settings, includes HD Brows, 2 HD eye shadow layers, Lashes, Eye Sockets and HD lips

– Clicking these buttons will remove materials from matching layers, removing materials will eliminate Hair/Head alpha interaction (if hair has materials enabled), leaving your Head layers, alpha clipping free. This means the glossiness of any of these layers will be removed.

Scripts:

– Scripts have been polished to reduce lag and make the HUD and heads operate smoother and respond faster.

There will be updates for all the Evolution Line heads – female and male. They as well will release a new male EvoX head soon and all the male Evolution heads will get a pretty polished update then too 🙂

Just stay tuned, I will inform you as soon as there are new updates and releases asap 😉
