Hi! I'm Heimdall, a burly, dragon-y type of person. I'm a professional artisan with a focus on leatherwork, but I also do illustration (digital and traditional), writing, 3D printing, copper electroplating, and bone/horn/antler carving. My studio name is A Thousand Rasps, from the Icelandic saying Þúsundþjalasmiður, meaning "smith of a thousand rasps" or "jack of all trades."

I'm interested in well-thought-out low fantasy settings, all kinds of art, Norse mythology, weight training, and world building. I have a BS in computer science and still enjoy coding. I'm nonbinary and prefer gender neutral pronouns, but I'm not picky. Also, I'm married to a cool guy.

Like everyone and their mother, I'm writing a novel series. Mine is fantasy and called the Heartseeker Trilogy. All three books are drafted, but I'm currently focused on finishing the first one, Swordsworn. (And I'm probably slacking. If you're reading this, you have permission to yell at me. ;))

I love to talk about music and am eager to share recommendations. I like folk metal (especially unique stuff--I've grown very picky about the usual "Viking heathen" stuff since there's so much out there), black metal, stoner metal, NWOTHM, dungeon synth, new retro wave, medieval folk and neofolk, and all manners of throat singing.
Some bands I like
Wolfmare, Rotting Christ, Primordial, Goblin Hovel, Nine Treasures, Tengger Cavalry, Trollfest, The Sword, Candlemass, Purple Hill Witch, Finntroll, Immortal, Bathory, Arany Zoltán, Corvus Corax, Merlin, Lord Lovidicus, Moth Tower, Fief, Borg

I mostly RP realistic low fantasy but I'll venture into high fantasy and Renaissance settings as well. I would love to get back into Star Trek-ish scifi. I generally dislike "slice of life" and modern settings. If you like my characters or just want to chat, drop me a line! I'm also a site moderator, and I'm more than happy to help with any RPR-related questions and concerns.

Some of my characters are set to anonymous!

Rave Reviews

Heimdall is fabulous. It's characters are amazing, it has incredible vision, wonderful artistic ability, and a fantastic friendliness. I got to meet Heimdall in person and it was just as I knew it would be; totally, completely epic!! I have known Heimdall for many years due to our time on Furcadia, waaaaay back when I was first starting out, and it was always very patient, kind, understanding, and teaching! Heimdall is a wonderful person!! - CelestinaGrey

    I am so grateful I've gotten to know Heimdall. It is always fun to write with them and if I get my way we'll have more stories together very soon. Their characters are fascinating, vibrant and emotionally resonant. Beyond writing they are encouraging, helpful, skilled in so many different forms of art it's a bit ridiculous. I simply can't say enough about this person so I shall sum it all up by saying 'Thank you for being my friend!' Kind and understanding Creative ideas
