Why I haven’t Updated as Often

Hey everyone! I haven’t been blogging as frequently because I got accepted for a full-time position at an environmental science lab. I also went back and edited some of my old anime art by referencing a few anatomy tutorials I found on DeviantArt.

If you’re lucky enough, you might pick up an Elixir of Life, a rare potion that will increase your maximum health. Its counterpart, the Will Master’s Elixir, expands your mana pool so you can cast more powerful spells without needing to recharge. Stray off the main path, and you will see digging spots and fishing locations where many silver keys are hidden.
