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, Goblin Hovel, Nine Treasures, Tengger Cavalry, Trollfest, the Sword, Candlemass, Hällas, Purple Hill Witch, Immortal, Bathory, Arany Zoltán, Corvus Corax, Merlin, Lord Lovidicus, Moth Tower
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!
Heimdall is the only dragon that can stomp a person to smithereens, and yet want to dress up like a princess for a festival. Heimdall is a true and absolute pleasure to RP with, and my characters have never been disappointed when they meet it. It is such a unique and wonderful character design. And I must say that I am rooting for HeimdallxEdward. It's too cute! - CelestinaGrey
Heimdall is a character of depth, and a brilliant example of a perfectly executed dragon that is neither overpowered nor weakened out of its flavor for the sake of balance. The beast makes no compromises in terms of strength, brutality or ferocity, but there are so many levels of complexity to its character that take it beyond simply being a fierce Viking (though it still remains one, very much so)--so many levels, in fact, that I don't think even its player has finished exploring them all. - ARCHITECT
Inquiring minds want to know why we too should befriend Heimdall!
Did you remember to explain why your friend is awesome?
