It’s Time for a D3 Token

A few months ago, Blizzard introduced the WoW Token. It wasn’t an entirely new concept, since other games have used something similar, but it was new for World of Warcraft players. In short, it gave players a safe way to purchase gold directly from Blizzard.

It also enabled players to use the in-game gold currency to pay for game time (instead of having to use real world currency). Diablo III is not subscription based, so that part of the WoW Token doesn’t relate to Diablo III. Even so, I think it is time for a D3 Token to be added to the game.

NPCs as Chibis

Recently, I used Chibi Maker to create cute, little, Chibis of all of the player classes in Diablo III. It was so much fun to play around with that I decided to see if I could turn some of the NPC (non-player characters) into Chibis.

This took a bit more imagination than I anticipated, but I think they came out cute anyway.

A long time ago, I decided that it would be fun to make some of the Diablo III characters as Chibis (especially the player classes).  My plan was to sit down and draw them all, but I never ended up finding the time to do it.  I’m really happy that the Chibi Maker is so easy to use.

All the Classes as Chibis

A while ago, I got the idea into my head that I wanted to draw all of the classes in Diablo III as chibis. I’ve never actually drawn anything as a chibi before, so this was going to be a challenge. I have a background in art, so I believed I would succeed in the chibi drawings once I got started on them. The problem, as usual, was that I never found the time to give it a try.

Fortunately, someone I follow on Twitter posted a tweet about Chibi Maker.  It is described as a “game”, but it is actually more of a paper doll maker kind of thing.  You can use it to select features and clothing and it will automatically put your choices into a chibi.  It is super easy to use and you can save a copy of the chibi you create.  It didn’t take long for me to make a chibi for all of the classes in Diablo III (female versions).

Reaper of Souls Launch Party

Blizzard Entertainment held an “invite-only” Launch Party for the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion. This was the very first time they held a Launch Party for an expansion for any of their games. Shawn and I were lucky enough to attend because we are both involved with the Shattered Soulstone podcast. The Launch Party was really fun, and I am thankful that I had the opportunity to attend. In this blog, I will share my photos from the event.

Reaper of Souls – Autographed Collectors Edition Unboxing

A few of us from the Shattered Soulstone podcast were invited to attend the Launch Party for the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls expansion. Those that attended received a Collectors Edition and had the opportunity to have it signed by many of the people who were involved with the game (in one way or another). I am incredibly grateful to have been invited to this event and happy to have met so many wonderful people.

I decided to do an unboxing of my autographed Collectors Edition of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls. I’m doing it with photos instead of a video. The photos will give you a clearer look at the signatures on the box.

Shattered Soulstone 100 Word Story Contest

The Demon Hunter skulked out of the shadows and glared across the dungeon. The other member of her party was about to head into trouble, and she was too far away to stop him.

“Get out of the lava, Smashez. You won’t survive it”.

The Barbarian climbed back up the stone steps and spat on the ground. “If that were so, then why are there stairs here?”

“We have bigger battles to fight than this one,” she reminded him. “Now, let’s go.”

The great Barbarian pouted and stomped his huge feet. “Aww, ThirtySeven, you never let me have any fun!”
