I’m playing Fallout 4 since June 2019, at the beginning on my 9 year old computer, and later on my new computer which I bought at the end of July. In the middle of August, I got sciatica, so that I couldn’t play for some weeks. The pain isn’t gone entirely. I stopped doing my practices as I catched a serious cold this month. I’m feeling reasonably well again now and will continue my practices this weekend.

But I know when I have enough breaks from the private projects, I have enough energy to continue the work on them until they are done. It will take longer though, but I rather prefer finishing them than burning out completely and never finish … Read more
aka “The many faces of Azareth”
Azareth was the first Abyss Demon character and his face has changed a lot during the development process of my Abyss Demon mod.
In November 2009, it began with the idea of making a race out of World of Warcraft’s Illidan; a race with big horns, wings and greenish tattoos.
