The more observant among you may have noticed quite a lot of activity from our Creative Goblins recently, they have been rather busy little fellows!
Foremost among their great achievements would have to be the radical improvements they have made on this fine webpage! On Friday evening, they broke out the lichen wine and began to dance like the fine ladies pictured above. Not anywhere near as pleasant for a man to look at, I admit, but amusing beyond a doubt.
So, why such scenes of troglodytic celebration? Well, after many months of speculation and a trickle-fed dose of pure Empyraeum joy to your eyes or several, www.empyraeum.com went live! Not only that but it went right to the head of several Google search terms within minutes; such clever little goblin folk we have here!
Of course, as is ever the case wih those insane savants that we have working with us, that was not all...
As I said, they have been really, really busy these past few weeks, I have no idea how they did it all so quickly (I have yet to sample their lichen wine but I hear that exotic cave lichen is not the only ingredient). Let me share with you a summary, as it were, of their recent achievements;
This fine source of information on the Empyraeum itself, incorporating the rather impressive Enkyklopaideia Empyraen, thoughts and observations from several of my good friends, and portraits of us all, including an especially fine one of your good blogger himself.
Those sneaky little goblins do enjoy giving the game away, as it were. We are not even close to finishing our first collaborative narration of events leading up to and including our return to Earth, but already they are hinting about what we have gotten down on paper! As usual, though, they have encoded their give-aways in some of their artwork. Their portrait of our fine Lady Dragon captures Her mein so well!
The Empyraeum YouTube Channel was also launched to absolutely no fanfare whatsoever because they had just forged ahead without teling me a thing. How am I supposed to build up the excitement and have our phalynxes of fans frothing at the mouth if I am not told?
Related to that, they did come up with a rather lovely animated Empyraeum Logo which will introduce all of our future videos and become a rather retro and atmospheric representation of our brand.
Also, they produced a rather nice Trailer Video for both the website launch and as intro to the upcoming book trilogy (as wel as the Amazn re-release of the Novellas). It features the very first public appearance of our Lady Dragon and a rather stirring soundtrack from the inesteemable Tyler Cunningham which we deeply enjoy listening to. It sets the video off very nicely and, I am told, gave Squinty the video-goblin all the inspiration he needed!
All in all, it has been a exciting time! Finally, our Creative Goblins have emerged from their hiding places and requested - nay demanded - both recognition for their fine work and a voice on this blog. You may well be hearing from them over the coming days and weeks. They are - once you get past the hygiene, beards you often find the remains of small animals in, and their....ah... eccentricities - rather fine fellows indeed, I am proud to share this blog with them and allow them to expound on their areas of expertise with you all.
As I always like to say, please keep your eyes open for event coming over the next week or few and please do enjoy the latest fruits of our goblins' labours.
