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. It's called Heartseeker and I love to chatter on about it. Here's chapter 1 of book 1, Swordsworn.

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.

If you like my characters, have any questions about RPR, or just want to chat, drop me a line! 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.

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

  • One of RPR's beloved mods, an amazing brain helping with Epic Week puzzles, and just a generally kind person who donated three separate works of art to a raffle to help those who couldn't afford it to get art. Folks like Heimdall make this community, and I'd argue...

  • Before I became active on RPR, I was a part of this group called BFOI on deviantART. That was where I first saw Heimdall. I suppose it says something when you can see someone's character and then come here to recognise that character in a place you probably weren't...

    "Nova is a force to be reckoned with in our community. She is insanely helpful, both by answering questions, contributing to topics and discussions, welcoming new players, and submitting reports that help us keep RPR neat and clean. And her writing is stellar: concise when needed, jam packed with perfectly constructed phrases, with just the right amount of humor sprinkled on top!"
