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, 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

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 RP occurs on a fantastic MMORPG called Furcadia--I also do occasional art and development for the game, and I enjoy building sweet maps!

Rave Reviews

I'd like to thank him for sending me that character slot! He is awesome and talented :) - Dragoncat
Heimdall's Dice, both in and outside Furcadia, is my favorite dice rolling style out of all the forum adventures I play in. I play many games but I rarely start my own. But this has changed!

As a base, Heimdall's Dice is perfect to build upon and to create different styles of games. I am truly thankful for such a simplistic, yet story integrable style of rolling dice. - Miss

See all of Heimdall's kudos »

Did you remember to explain why your friend is awesome?

    I've come to know Heimdall as a fantastic artist and writer. I had the privilege of reading the first couple of chapters of their book and it was so easy to get lost in the world that they have created! Not only that but their leather work is amazing and something to admire! I loved seeing their renfair shop! If I had the money I would commission them to make me the finest leather armor!
