1 – Do you and your "fursona" look alike?

A: Quite! That's the main reason I created it! XD

A: 90% of the time. I'm not into new clothes or brands. As long as it'confortable and decent I don't mind.

3 – Do you share the same sexuality as your fursona?

A: You could say that... except that I haven't done ANYTHING and he has had a few... INCIDENTS...

4 – If you hadn’t already made your fursona look like you, if you would to change how he/she looked like to make him/her look more like you, how would you think he/she would look like?

A: The next/only step would be a werebeast/Bloody Roar type... we are just too alike!

5 – Did you work hard to develop your fursona? What is the (brief) history of your fursona?

A: Not really. I just thought a bit about the idea I was planning to use to hook people into furry (not really big here in Puerto Rico) Since Cancer didn't fly, I went with my Chinese sign. Black guy+ Monkey= Gorilla? Works for me! :D

9 – What’s your fursona’s specialty?

A: Besides the ape's characteristics and skills, good memory (if somewhat slow when saturated XP) good at math just below the millions, and I pretty much can make anyone laught in short notice! XD

10 – At a score of 1-10 how much are you and your fursona alike?

A: Overall 9/10. Only differences are species and comics-hero abilites. 

What you may/not know about me (read at you own risk)

WARNING: The following may be hilariously silly or annoyingly serious, or somewhere in between, changing tone without warning. Reader's discretion is advised. Do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery while reading the following

1. I don't start conversations: At least not in IM, unless I have something to say or ask. Some people get kinda mad at me for that, or rather find it so odd not to have little IM with someone after a week or more... I'm quite talkative in person, though. So much that if you don't stop me I'm bound to keep talking! AND when I see you are Away or appear online, I consider you might be busy, and I don't interrupt anyone, unless it's really important, and even then I can wait a while, at least in person.

2. I'm shy: Yeah, the tons of porn I do are not a match to how I am. Heck, when I read the comment of my photos I was totally red over here! I can joke and fool around, but I have never had a boy/girlfriend. If someone flirts with me... I might spontaneously teleport! XD

3. I can be loud: the more I talk, the more I get into it. And if it's exciting, my volume goes up with the excitement. My friend Ricardo has to signal me when I'm getting carried away before the whole neighborhood hears me!

4. I have just a toenail clipper: I got TEETH for my fingernails... I bite them off when I'm bored/idle, or they're long. I actually bit off my TOENAILS when I was younger... I don't reach anymore XD

5. I always finish what I start: As long as I find out how... Just a week ago, I decided to finish watching Sailor Moon Sailorstars, since I watched the first 3 fansub VHS years ago. I got a few ideas for a bunch of new YuGiOh cards I had planned, Psychic Rebels, thought they are NOT Sailor Moon related! XD

I'm pretty sure there are others ( I'm sure I didn't write ALL the ones I meant to right now) but I guess that just means there will be a part two...

I was the "bully buster" in my high school years! anyone that tried to take advantage of the younger players, I just stood beside them, and they let me in. 90 secnds later i had won and they could get beat fairly by the CPU... Wait, did I say FAIRLY??

My OTHER favorite game

WARNING: The following may be hilariously silly or annoyingly serious, or somewhere in between, changing tone without warning. Reader's discretion is advised. Do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery while reading the following

Nanaca Crash

First links has info on how to play and what it is based from (you will NEVER guess!) The girls' special and combination attacks are unpredictable and fun to watch. The recharging attack is a nice twist; just got to be careful no to use up the 3 red ones by mistake!

Toss the Turtle (Shouldn't it be FIRE the Turtle?)

A simple addition, shooting the guy after launching him. I had thought of that with my Far Flying game idea, as well as air control, but this one has so many things added that I never thought off! I could do without the gore (I prefer cleaner humor, except for...) but I still play this game to get everything (yeah, in BOTH accounts!)

The secondary play mode (manning the tanks) is what keeps me playing. I'd LOVE to play this with other people. This one reminds me of a Tower Defence game I've been designing for a while, using catapults that may shoot you into the enemy (purposely or by accident when undermanned)

Seeing these games make me see this games can still evolve, and we'll have fun for a LONG time!

My newest favorite game

WARNING: The following may be hilariously silly or annoyingly serious, or somewhere in between, changing tone without warning. Reader's discretion is advised. Do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery while reading the following

Thanks to konanarillah  konanarillah I found a pack to make BakuretuBlock games (gotta check if there's a new version) I spent a while of my offline time making the graphics for these games, but then got so many ideas that I haven STARTED any yet! Story of my life...

I guess I'll have to put a page in FeralRealm so people can play them. For know I'll post a bit of my FAQ on the subject. If anyone wants one I guess I'll make them for $10 per pack, which is a two-stage game(you can link them for even more stages, another of my ideas)

What is this?

It's a Java game just like Breakout or Arkanoid. You control a pad you use to shoot and bounce a ball that will clear blocks to reveal what's underneath. Here's the site for the version I have

In the original Japanese games, you undress a character, and get kinkier from there at times. Christopher "DeeMer" DeMichiei made a Kirby-themed version (destroy Dark Matter!) that shows how flexible the theme can be. For example, my plan is for a series where tiny furries fight back at armored predators by destroying their armor with the magical Stripball... and then biting and scratching all their tender spots! XD

FYI, BakuretuBlock turns your 480 X 560 GIFs into 16 X 16 blocks, making a 30 X 35 grid of a maximum of 1050 blocks... well, I was just curious and ran the Calculator XP

Bakuretu Block Parameters

1. life= how many tries to clear all blocks

2. wait= the speed of the Stripball. Higher means slower (wait speed, not max speed)

4. sound= enable the sound for block break, pad/wall hit and missed ball

5. fuku1= the layer to break down

6. ok1= how many blocks can be left before the stage is won

7. kantuu1= the special ball when you bounce it back with the DEAD CENTER of the pad

8. ext_mode= enables a second layer for a second stage. You must add a fuku2, ok2, and kantuu2 line for this second stage, so you can make it easier or harder if you wish...

9. bonus= an JPEG image or GIF image/animation for when the final layer is cleared

10. next= a click on the game window will send the player to a new webpage

Mastering BakuretuBlock

1. Center Yourself- do your best to hit the EXACT CENTER of the pad to bounce the ball back for a powerful "penetration shot" that will go through blocks instead of breaking just one and bouncing back. This will make ANY BakuBlock much easier to clear... as long as kantuu is enabled in the game!

2. Lucky Corner- Experiment with launching the ball from a certain spot until you find one that gets it bouncing around and clearing a bunch of blocks before you even get a chance to bounce it back!

4. Surgical Strike- use the form of the fuku layer to your advantage! Use curves and corners by sending the ball inside them to bounce all over them, or use the "corridors" made by kantuu shots!

5. Divide and...LOSE?- it can be really hard to hit small clumps and solitary blocks later on, so try to clear the edges of the layer and work your way to the middle...

6. Work on your return- No matter what you do or how, you have to bounce back the ball eventually, so always pay attention to where it is going, especially in high-speed games!

Making BakuretuBlock games

1. Take it apart- You'll need a background image as the cg, and at least one layer for the fuku1 that will be on top of the cg image. a bonus image for when the fuku layer(s) are cleared is a nice touch, or a next link to a webpage for an even better reward!

2. A Balanced Deal- There should be enough lives to clear all blocks, especially if there are two stages. If there are many blocks to clear, give more lives and enable kantuu shots. Those shots can clear A LOT of blocks in one go! If there aren't that many blocks give fewer lives, or even disable kantuu shots for a bigger challenge!

4. Size Matters- small pieces are dealt with in a different way that large pieces. In any case the more blocks there are, the more lives that may be needed... the placement of the blocks can be a challenge by itself!

5. Eye Tricks- while clearing the fuku2 layer, everything in fuku1 is treated as background, only to be an obstacle to clear at stage 2! Also, a block will be made even from even ONE solitary pixel, so be careful when making the GIF transparency... unless you're evil...>:-P If you ARE evil, you can make something part of ALL layers so it "stays" there after being cleared... quite a mind game!

6. Here's your reward!- It always nice to get a bonus, especially after clearing out TWO stages! You can put a GIF instead of a JPEG as the bonus, too. Of course linking to a page with something more than a JPEG or GIF would be a great reward for a really tough BakuBlock! Some japanese makers link to a gallery with all the images, for example.

BakuretuBlock Themes/Ideas

1. Gorilla in the Mist- the mist of a HOT SPRING, actually! But that might work too, right?

2. Smoke and Mirrors- Clear out the smoke and see what's actually there, magic or not!

4. Underwear Bandit- I've never KNOWN of someone having even their clothes stolen, but maybe this thief should see how it feel like, eh?

5. Scary Shadows- Mist, cobwebs, tree leaves and grass in a Halloween night... Wait, is there SOMETHING hiding in there?!

6. ShaveBall?!?- Taking the original theme to a HAIRIEST level! Leave a Wookie, Sasquatch,etc. hairless and prideless! For some reason I wondered what a Wookie looked like under all that hair... do they have ears? >:D That could work on those crazy hairstyles, too... from broom head to skinhead! >:D

7. Digball- dig out fossils... or treasure! Like a few games I've read about lately....

8. Scratchball- You know Scratch and Win? Then you know what I mean XD

My Dream Baku Block

1. Gravity- if you leave a bunch of blocks "floating", have them fall!

2. Power Combo- If you make consecutive Kantuu shots, make them stronger/bigger!

3. Sweet Spots- hitting certain spots to make a bar fill up. Max it out for a hot bonus!

4. Score- I'd love to know how many lives I had left after I clear the last stage. Maybe a score for those lives left, or a bonus gift if you have enough left!

5. Left or Right?- that's one thing I want the most, choosing which way to shoot the ball at the start...

6. Targets- How about clearing specific areas instead of leaving a certain amount of blocks?

My experience with Blood Bowl/Chaos League

WARNING: The following may be hilariously silly or annoyingly serious, or somewhere in between, changing tone without warning. Reader's discretion is advised. Do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery while reading the following

My experience with Blood Bowl/Chaos League

I saw that the Blood Bowl Wiki was started in 2008, and that the Living Rulebook is in the 5th version now, But I only found out about Blood Bowl a few months ago. I tried the DS game, but I’m not much into football, so I was no good at it. Then I see this:

And I got into playing it again. Now I got a better feel for the game, and decided to start all over now that I understand the rules and how to WIN a game. MY First match with the Wilders (Chaos) against a Wood Elf team ended 3-0, 10 injured, 2 DEAD… all in my favor, and that really got me playing. I also got the PC version (will have to save for the Legendary game/version!) but I can’t handle the Real Time mode… just like I can’t handle football games XP but it certainly has more to look at (nice fur on the Minotaur and there are multiple models for each player, 6 skins and 9 heads for Beastmen!… or was it backwards?) I certainly enjoy the commentary… and the simulated chat taunts The Campaign mode is bound to keep me in Fullscreen/Away mode for some time…

Googling about this game I found Chaos League, a more Real-time game kinda like Blood Bowl. I can manage to play and win this one, but I work better at slow/turn-based games. It’s got it’s own charms, too so I might play it some more.

FYI, these are the Blood Bowl wiki pages I have made

They will help for my latest idea, Blood Bowl Anthro teams! I already started scouting…

BTW, this is me in FUMBBL, which has a Java Blood Bowl game. I'm still learning IRC and getting to play the game, but If you are interested...

I'm here

The following may be hilariously silly or annoyingly serious, or somewhere in between, changing tone without warning.

Reader's discretion is advised. Do not drink, eat or operate heavy machinery while reading the following

I have been thinking about this for a while... I have found myself writing a lot more than drawing (OK, I haven't drawn AT ALL for a while) and I thought about my "stand-up moments" when I visit my friends (I might look scary, but around my friends I'm a real joker) so I finally made up my mind and will put it on text. Please observe my journal heading before reading ;-)

I figure it's a good idea to let you all know more about me, since I'm not likely to make YouTube videos, and while I already have a microphone here, i only want to do a recording so you know how I sound like. That's bound to be funny, especially if you manage to understand me! I also thought of writing this as short fics or theater scripts (I'm sure I used the wrong term... screenplay, maybe?) but maybe with a little practice I'll figure out if Fic submissions work better than Journal posts.

I chose to start with me, myself and the "I’s" that I have over the Net. Everything about me applies to the other unless it obviously contradicts something. I’m planning to draw a group pic to go with this. BTW, there 6 sides of Me (Other Half of Me by Icon of Coil)

Luis Raul Diaz Rios- Eternal Walker ( 90 minutes from home to town for over 5 years!)The Google Brain, The Duke of Games ( I know little of nobility ranks, but I'm sure Duke is lower than King XD) The Curious Gorilla. I have a few more nicknames, but they are exclusive to certain people, and others are the usual annoying school days nick you wish to erase from mankind's history. I grew real fast, so much that Mom had to argue at the last years I could still get kiddy tickets for movies and such. I have a skin thing that gives me "meat bumps" that end up with me covered in Band-aids even with the most expensive shavers, so I leave it for my monthly barber visit. I enjoy games so much I design a lot of them and remix almost every one I try out. I like to learn, and learning something new once I day is something I try to do. It's also what I try to learn Japanese any way available to me, besides the fact that I like anime, manga and many other things from Japan an other Asian countries. I have somewhat bad eyesight, which might be why I confuse detail in pics sometimes, and why visual puzzles take me longer.

Ramsey- The Gorilla artist, less scary than what most humans would think, just talk nicely and respectfully and you won't get hurt. A proud geek who doesn’t mind giving assistance or information whenever I can. Likes cute (the Peachtree dog from the TV ads) and humor (George Carlin makes heaven smile brighter now)

Google Brain- when someone tries to remember something I ask for keywords or genre. Since I read so much I usually know what they want to say. I tend to joke with computer names, like needing to defrag my memories or that you need a codec to understand me talking (I will make a recording soon so you hear me and believe it or not XD).

Tetsu- a Ramsey from a fully furry world, an amateur mage that contacted me by accident, then ended up in our world by accident. Until he somehow manages to go back, I have him as my houseguest. He's totally opposite of me, promiscuous, dirty jokes all the time, eats like the floor is his dinner guest, and a tornado would make less of a mess than he does! ... One of these days I'll end up learning magic to "help" him...

Ahndal- The Knight, The Blade of Righting. First time I remember using this one was for browser game about knight. Since then I use him for war games, old or new, following my Second Lives concept. (Like Rudo and Bakari living in medieval times and then "reborn" into modern times) He is not part of an army so he won’t be forced to obey orders he thinks are wrong.

Rhaigan- The Barbarian, the Hate Killer. If there is someone a racist or bigot does not want to meet alone, it is Rhaigan. Not particularly victim of them, but he does not allow them to hurt anyone. Unfortunately, he has a bit of the Berserker in him, meaning a short fuse and fast combat reflexes, instead of hi mouth shooting off, it’s his left fist or right foot, usually right to the tender spots. Beware, he bites! Still, he is really a good guy, and he loves animals as much as they love him back. You might catch him playing around with pups or kitties to amuse kids, but you better not say anything about it… he still

Rhaizan- The werebeast, a Law Berserk, not truly an anarchist, but if a rule doesn’t work out, he scraps it without blinking, also why he is solo instead of with a pack. WereGorillas are rare, and one like him is even more. He knows of Beastmen and has dealt with a few rogues, but he prefers to keep living by himself if he can help it. I admit he is the least developed of the six for now, but that will soon change after I get the group pic finished.

That will be all for this time. I'm still new at this, so I'll do more soon, OK?
