1000th Post (and a Contest)



Wow, I didn't know if I could keep this thing going this long, but here I am. Halls of the Nephilim was conceived as a place for me to talk about my homebrew Mutants and Masterminds setting: The Punverse (which is in the URL). That was in June of 2010. It has evolved into an entirely different monster. I've let it fall be the wayside and have more unfinished plans and half-baked ideas that I'd like to admit. I didn't hit 200 posts until the end of November 2013.That means it took me three years and five months to get to 200 posts. Two years, eight and a half months later I'm posting my 1000th entry. I don't know what lit a fire under my ass, but I'm glad it did. My best friend, Wirty, said that I should aim for 400 posts for 2017. That's a lofty goal and I don't want to post any old crap, but I think that's a challenge I'd be up for. Who knows if I'll do it, but it's worth a shot.

To celebrate the occasion, I wanted to have a raffle/contest. I've talked to an artist, my friend +David Coppoletti, and he has agreed to do an original sketch for the winner. You make the request, he'll make it happen.


Here's a sample of his work:



All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post. In one week (or whenever I have 20 different people comment), I'll put the names on a numbered chart and make a video in which I roll a die (preferably a d20) to determine the winner. Good luck and thanks for being a reader!

  6. Congratulations on the milestone. I hope your friend likes drawing nude pictures of the cast of Firefly because if I win that's what I'm asking for.

    1. Dave saw the comment had a "bring it on" style response.

  7. I wouldn't mind an original sketch, and I set for the 2017 challenge. So, I suppose I should support this one!

    1. That's weird. It did that to someone else too. She deleted her comment and when she reposted, her name showed up.
