BTW, Grex files have a rare habit of randomly disappearing. Luckily, Grex files have been much more stable in recent years, but I haven't been as consistant in fixing links. I plan to improve the frequency of my updates. Comments on anything related to my web page are welcome & you can reach me at my new Yahoo account (The address is at the bottom of the page. All you have to do is delete the 77s from the e-mail address.).
There's also the Transmasters UK page, a Yahoo Group for the club, and a message board, (*group link verified and board link corrected 9/08/09). I joined the Yahoo group recently; a link to their group has been a long-standing tradition that I have upheld since the early days of my webpage.
Here's a list of what has been new on this page during the past month.
Others also know me as the creator of the characters Flamethrower@2005 (whom I played from the time the MUSH opened up until July 1996. Since October 2002 she participates in most of the weekly TPs at the Decepticon Dominion MUSH. Her recent Tech spec information is found here on Tripod.), Safari@TF1 (whom I played from July 1994 until TF1 went down in 1996), as well as Songbird@2005 (whom I never played), & Fanfic characters such as Yell (aka Yellow/Maize), Rosestar, Ravine, Bite, and Edge. Rosestar, Yell, Edge, Ravine, and Flamethrower appear in my fanfic "Twins & Tales" (available via my Fanfic WWW page).
Rosestar also had a cameo appearence in Ben Thomas' "The Manifestations of Fear" pt. 1, Joona I. Palaste's "Heptachromicon" pt. 4, and Joona's "The Two Strands" (available at the same site). Recently, Neale Davidson created a Paperformer of her on his fan page (which also includes a revised tech spec). If anyone wants to use any of my characters in a Fanfic, please e-mail me first.
I've named this page beta in honor of my favorite female TF from the TF cartoons. Beta, the courageous second-in-command under the leadership of A3, helped begin the rebellion against the Quintessons in the Transformer after-movie episode "Forever is a Long Time Coming." Her weapon was a type of laser crossbow. I'm not trying to compare myself to her in any way. IMO she's the closest thing that the female Autobots really had to an unsung hero.
If I've already confused you, but you still want to learn more about Transformers anyway, visit Stanley Lui's Transformer Encyclopedia. This resource helps both the rookies & genuine fans and covers the comic & cartoon histories.
If anyone wants to suggest a TF toy character that I should include, it either has to be a TF toy I have (G1, G2, Beast Wars, etc.) OR there has to be a .GIF or .JPEG of it at an FTP or WWW site. Sorry, but Fortress Maximus is too big for me to draw. However, I already drew Trypticon.
If it's a TF from the comic that you want me to include, he/she has to be in an issue that I own (ie. US G1 issues 10, 11, 12, 17, 20, 25, 27-31, 33, G. I. Joe/TFs 1, Headmaster 1, or G2 1-12; or in the reprints of US 7-36, 56-80, G2 1-12.) or have a scan somewhere on a WWW site. If it's a TF cartoon character, tell me the name. (US or Japanese--if it's Japanese & it's a 'bot from Victory or a Trainbot, please include a general description so that I don't mix him up w/ another 'bot.) If a TF fitting the above conditions is one you want me to include & I've not already drawn him/her (check the Future directory for the list), feel free to e-mail me here on Grex (My e-mail address is at the bottom of the page.)
Although I'm not done with any of those projects (or my fanfic Twins and Tales) I have a fanfic or two that I might work on. Here's my Future directory where you find out which characters I've finished drawing for the D&D game or to read a preview of a certain Fanfic idea...
Every once in a while I still enjoy watching the classic cartoon Dungeons and Dragons for which I have made an episode list. Since the most common question I'm asked about w/ the D&D cartoon is for a voice list, I typed one up.
I enjoy anyone's comments (be it about the TF Fanfic list, Transformer related messages, Eek messages, D&D, Atari 7800/Gameboy/Game Gear, Game Genie for GB or GG, general suggestions, etc). E-mail me at: here on Yahoo.
