Assault. June 25, 2014, 9:54 am
Told my close friends here this already, but why not vent it further.

So, today I was assaulted in my own home, in my own room, by my mother's drug addict "partner" (I use that term very loosely, there is no love, obviously) and were it not for my mother's intervention, I could have been killed.

I'm pretty lucky to (not only be alive) only have some minor bruises and grazes by the time she forced him to get off me, as well have a computer that SOMEHOW evaded total destruction despite being on my lap when he grabbed me and tried to choke me by forcing liquid soap down my throat (yeah, wtf?). Its entirely unscathed aside from a bloodstain on the lid from my finger that was cut from stray glass when I furiously smashed my desk lamp into his head repeatedly to stop the choke thing.

This is his sixth assault on either me or my brother (Ive been attacked five times, because im the smaller weaker nerd brother, my brother is large. He only got attacked when he was recovering from knee surgery, coward)

The saddest thing is that its a typical domestic abuse cycle; the type that cannot be easily left. He is the kind of slippery snake that dodges all charges, weaves his way through any and all loopholes and generally cant be dealt with legally without some huge carefully laid out plan.

My stepmother had two people like this guy in her life; one during her teenage years, and one that was her best friend's partner. Her best friend was murdered in a similar situation to mine. So I know how much worse things can get and moves not to do at all cost.

I know you guys cant really help with it (and would probably force his hand if someone did attempt to, he's deathly afraid of the cops actually busting him for real) but still, posting because it makes me feel a little better.

HEY OBSIDIAN, I should sneakily move in with you. We can move to Mt. Doom and take over the words Dooming from there! No? Worth a shot.

Ragnor's wad blog May 31, 2013, 4:17 am
As a blog section for Doomworld, I feel it's only fitting I start one about what I'm playing or have scheduled. Especially since when I play amazing levels, due to my relative lack of Doomer friends, theres no point talking about them, lest I face a few bored yawns.

Currently I am working on Doom 64 (At map 9, the start of Hell), Hell to Pay (Map 23, the "trials of hell" and Perdition's Gate (Beginning of E2)

Aside from that, I have a few PSX TC Lost Levels to try out, a proper playthrough of Sverre's Cabal levels, and all of Jim Flynn's maps

I would also like to revisit the very first pwads I ever played: Vilecore for Doom 2, Herian 2 for ZDoom, and a 9 level replacement for Ultimate Doom that I have never seen a trace of on Doomworld, or on kmexii's blog. I dont remember the exact title, but it involved "Project", "5", started in your home, and had every level connect with the start of the next. It used custom textures and monster replacements, but was seemingly made for all kinds of users, as on Doom95, I could add a single addon wad. Even without the intended texture addon, it was perfectly textured in stock textures, and an INCREDIBLY atmospheric experience. It even had 3D models for JDoom! The secret level was a Pac-man level, and one level was an awesome Hangar remake. If anyone can help me find this wad again, I'd be really grateful.

Currently I'm dicking around in an RPG called Sacred, so it'll be a while before I start on all this, but I figured I'd start the blog now.

Well this is embarrasing May 29, 2013, 3:07 am
Today I learned blogs exist. I guess I'm one less part noob now. Now I just need to contribute and make a map for something! Oh wait that will never happen, too unskilled for that. I'll just keep butting into projects with "helpful advice" instead!
