So I've spent the day cleaning off more artwork and getting reacquainted with my Photoshop 2.0. I'm starting the typing of this post at 9:34pm EST here in Philadelphia. Kinda TIMING MYSELF, to see how long it takes to get this all typed out and then posted and then posted on My Social Media Accounts. I'm going to be creating an Instagram Account for Williams Works, long past due anyway, right.
Let's get into the guts of the new designs WHERE!?
I have ALREADY finished the designs and product selections and such, thus the reason why this is SO LATE! I'm also feeling a LOT BETTER than I was yesterday, so no rhyme-time on this one. And I can tell you're really disappointed by that, right?
Lemme stop typin my mouth off and get into the guts of THIS POST;
The Little Black Bird
The Little Black Bird is ACTUALLY A VERY OLD CHARACTER from My High School days. I created the character when I was in 8th-grade. The best way to describe the Little Black Bird was that HE was a random prank-character based off of the phrase "A Little Black Bird told me."
This was originally uttered by My Oldest Sworn-Brother when I used to Judge Marvel Role-Playing Games. And he used to say the phrase to LAZY PLAYER-CHARACTERS who'd become accustomed to "normal RPG's" of the time.
Which flat out meant WHITE-RUN, RPG's.
I've typed to You All Before, that part of the reason why I have been an unknown is simply because I HAVE CHOSEN TO BE. And of course it is something where I've compiled a long-list of friends-n-enemies AND FAMILY. Who have told Me in the Past, JUST TAKE THE MONEY AND DON'T WORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
So you see, the Little Black Bird, INITIALLY, was and is, something that ALL OF US EXPERIENCE ALREADY ON A DAILY BASIS. The Little Black Bird is YOUR OWN INSTINCTS. It's the Voice You Hear when YOU KNOW YOU'RE ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY FUCKED UP OR YOU'RE UNEASY WITH. Mind you, DO NOT BE FOOLED BY MORALITY. Because doing something REALLY FUCKED UP, can ACTUALLY GOOD OR BAD. But the CONNOTATION IS NORMALLY NEGATIVE.
Bottom line is that the Little Black Bird is an Omnidimensional-entity.
That goes from dimension-to-dimension, INTERJECTING, at critical-points.
So unlike Marvel Comics Watcher/s, the Little Black Bird is an entity that ARRIVES AND THEN ACTUALLY DOES HAVE A POINT AND WILL DO SOMETHING. Problem is that sometimes IT DOES SHIT TO THROW PEOPLE OFF ITS REAL OBJECTIVES!
Mind you it took the players from My Marvel Days literal years before they realized that His Arrival is sometimes just A PLOY for Him to appear to be doing ONE THING. While He's really up to something else, which means He Has HIS OWN AGENDA. And shares IT with NO ONE.
And before I wrap this up what does being Black and playing RPG's from the 80's-90's have to do with anything...?
The Blacks I played with when We ran with White players, well, We'd seen shit in the real world where quite frankly the White players HADN'T. And I don't mean friendly ha-ha very funny muthafucka-type shit. So sittin around listening to somebody LOAF their way through a module with EASY TO SEE PRE-PROGRAMMED TRICKS-N-TRAPS, was BULLSHIT!
So eventually I got DRAFTED into buying materials and, THEY GAVE ME MONEY BY THE WAY. But I got DRAFTED due to My Knowledge of Mythology and Marvel Comics and all of that kind of shit. I ran sessions where I DID NOT HOLD YOUR HAND. Everything I made was based ON THE REAL WORLD. So if YOU THINK YOU'RE READY TO FACE A DRAGON AS A LEVEL-5 WHATEVER, I ain't stoppin ya.
You'll die of course.
BUT I AIN'T STOPPIN YA!
I created REAL WORLD SCENARIOS where the White-made TSR-modules and such, LOOK. Right now as I'm typing YOUR ASS DOESN'T HAVE A BAR OVER YOUR HEAD THAT SHOWS HOW MANY FUCKIN HIT POINTS YOU HAVE OR WHAT LEVEL YOU ARE!
Is what I incorporated INTO MY RPG-SESSIONS. An OPEN-WORLD. Where MY JOB was TO KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON THROUGHOUT THE WORLD I'D CREATED.
The Little Black Bird became a signature representation of Me, GIVING PLAYERS, clues and hints. And He just grew from there. Only a SELECT-FEW PLAYERS ever got the chance to SEE that the Little Black Bird was actually A GINORMOUS BLACK PHOENIX! Only 1-player ever went ON AN ACTUAL ADVENTURE WITH the Little Black Bird and a handful of players did MISSIONS on His Behalf and AT HIS REQUEST.
The bottom line is the Little Black Bird became SYNONYMOUS with My Adventures IN ANY FORMAT. So it was past due time that I finally DREW HIM.

Is where I will give generalized updates!
