I really want to collaborate with people to make cool stuff but I also hate collaborating because every time I try nobody else seems to maintain interest and disappears.
There is no default country and it definitely isn't the USA
Realising I can claim my PC upgrade and a new laptop as business expenses for gamedev, which will be helpful some time in the future when I make enough money to be taxed.
I'm dragged from the Sony offices by my ankles as I continue to proclaim that the next Wipeout game soundtrack should be entirely composed of Savage Garden. I'm thrown to the sidewalk, my lifelong mission is still incomplete but there's time. There's time.
even if you are small you can do a big thing
I am here. My creations mean something. I know what I am doing. My art is valuable and worthy. I am good enough. Failure to succeed does not reflect on my worth. I am not sufficiently supported.

I've made and released 15 games in the last 4-5 years. I've half-built another 15 or so. Made probably another 15 throughout highschool. They're generally ugly and don't always work. They're usually not fun.
But despite everything, I made them.

Their order provides them with a living, so they can spend time exploring, meditating, and studying things from a theological perspective, to try and come to terms with the place and implications of the undead. To provide guidance for their society. So they write and reflect.
When you build your entire modern tech society around using the bones of the dead, the presence of undead is A LITTLE UNNERVING. They're not shunned, but... nobody really wants to think about them. Thankfully, my character was a monk, so now they're a pilgrim.
See, my character is from a race of aliens with crystal bones, that use said bones for a hybrid tech/magic. Like if fibre optics carried power. All their tech is made from the bones of the dead. My character is one of the first rare instances of the dead coming back to life.
