The major illustrator for my website is Jamin Allen, the founder of Nimajination Studios, who is known as "Volgraza" on the popular YouTube channel V^2Gamers. The site features game play, advice, update information for games such as SpaceEngineers, and other games on Steam. He is a professional graphic designer. He is also my son.

His professional training as an illustrator began at the Art Institute of Atlanta, but he knew he wanted to be an artist from the time he was five. His favorite gifts on birthdays and at Christmas were always art supplies.

His site, V^2Gamers features his original art and videos he has created to illustrate aspects of various games. He narrates and does creative voiceovers.

Jamin has collaborated on many aspects of my website and my books, and he is the co-illustrator for the Tarthian Empire Companion. The drawings of the Kyrenie firestorms, the FIST (Facility for Imperial Ships and Transports), and the logos for the rock groups in my books were all conceived and created by Jamin.

Emaille, Hunter's Paradise

Natives pronounce the planet's name as Eh-MAH-lee, and the surest way to give away tourist status is to call it EE-mail.

Emaille was discovered in 4654 tradestandard and immediately became the premier spot for trade in seafood. The world boasted flowing rivers stocked with all varieties of fish, game in the lush forests, and grains growing wild. Tarthian immigration began within the year.

Call this planet by its rightful name or invoke displeasure

The seas on Emaille are so deep they are almost black, and the natives have a natural fear of it. Tourists however, enjoy boating, fishing, snorkeling, and limited diving. Locals will not travel out of sight of land.

The planet imports technology and exports fish and seafood.

Big game hunters on Emaille have a saying: "No scars, no experience." The native Fasciatus, a massive, horned creature with tiny eyes, big claws, and a huge mouth is hunted for food, leather, and fur. Locals use its claws as digging implements and to hollow out small logs to use as canoes. A swipe from its paws or claws is deadly, but it does not hunt humans by nature. It subsists on smaller animals and seems to delight in catching and consuming ants and termites.

Ezraki, Chiasmii Homeworld

Welcome to Ezraki

Ezraki, Chiasmii Homeworld

An Ezraki legend says that a jealous god placed a curse upon two lovers, San (red/female), and Pter (gold/male), so that they could never touch one another. According to the story, the other gods took pity on them, and raised them into the sky as moons.

There, they race across the sky side by side, only touching when a total eclipse occurs. The inhabitants refer to this as Sanpterdroit, and it is a world-wide celebration.

The two moons always rise and set at the same time, and appear to be the same size in the sky. However, the gold moon, Pter, is larger than the red moon, San, and only seems the same size because San is closer to the planet.

Inhabitants are called Chiasmii. They are, without exception, blond and fair-skinned. Truly androgynous, they are mother to one child and father to the next, favoring first one gender and then the other, occurring in two phases named after their moons, San and Pter. About twenty percent of the population consists of twins. With their race's uniformly blond appearance, first time visitors often have difficulty telling inhabitants apart.

From 4648 to 4653 tradestandard, the Chiasmii were the subjects of genetic manipulation in a program that came to be known as the Sabbath Experiment. A select group were actually impregnated with their own eggs/sperm and the resultant fetus altered by adding additional DNA. Speculation abounds regarding the children born during this time. Protestors started a fire which destroyed the complex utterly. No records survived.

The Chiasmii's dual genders have far-reaching consequences in their society (i. e., workplaces, and hours geared first to child care rather than the convenience of business). Their immune systems prevent every disease from the common cold to cancer, resulting in medicine focusing on injury-rehabilitation, genetics, and natural cures such as herbs, massage, and chiropractic. They invented Empas-assisted natural childbirth, during which a doula links the mother and fetus.

Before the Conqueror arrived in 4648 tradestandard, their society was non-violent, which they attributed to the fact that all could feel a victim's pain. Their gift of Sympas enables them to feel the pleasure or pain of others; and Empas reflects their own. Far from granting them immunity from harm, those attributes ensured their slavery.

They are commonly called Androgs.
