The Selene Colony

SeleneColony

Mice! On the MOON!

Thanks to everyone for your patience as we work on putting out a new episode for you this week. Uninterrupted travel has interrupted our regular scheduling, but we’ll be back with new adventures from Betsy in the land of Topdown soon!

In the meantime, the MOON!

Above you’ll see a draft diagram of the Selene Colony. Long before the squirrels, rats, mice, and marmots took over the realms, Humans ruled and lived in paradise. The first men were called the ‘Eathir’, and they were brought to ‘Selene’ by the immortal ‘Uninati’.

Or maybe the people of Earth were brought to a moon colony by the United Nations? Something like that.

The diagram should give a good indication of just how big Calaen (called Selene by the Human colonists) is within the bulk of the moon. Discuss! Let me know if you have any questions!

See you soon on Mice on the Moon!

Reeve Gurkin & Little Lord Luckless

Gurkin

Behold! Gurkin and Dunnock, two of the fellowship of foolish souls dedicated to bringing Prince Osfalt Bricklayer to the throne of the Weald. Gurkin on the left, Dunnock on the right.

Reeve Gurkin: Gurkin is a short, chubby rat charged with a shire in the Fernward. He’s a landlord, farmer, and man of the law. He recently took over responsibilities over his father’s lands when the elder Gurkin passed away. Married for a handful of years, Gurkin has no heirs. He didn’t hesitate to leave his lands in the care of his wife when Duke Lyndis Fern of the Fernward called him to join in fellowship against cruel King Vertibule Redox. Gurkin is loyal but stuffy. Blunt, stuffy, honest and formal. He believes in just rule and good stewardship.

Dunnock, former heir to the Dukedom of the Dundowns: Called ‘Little Lord Luckless’ as a tease by his friends, the stout mouse Dunnock is the junior of his house. His father, Dunnock the Elder, advocates for his lands and titles in the capital at Hythyr. The Dundown lands and holdings were ripped from his family when King Vertibule gifted them to his foul allies, Norve Rat mercenaries and pirates from the chill lands beyond the Bear Gate. Dunnock is young, but has survived quite a few battles against foes large and mighty. He’s a worrier, prone to be a squeaky wheel, and eager to make his father proud and gain back their hereditary lands. Dunnock believes in family, loyalty, hard work and a good meal at the end of the day.

Episode 10 – Welcome to Giggle Mucus Church

In this episode, Betsy faces her grossest foe yet. Watch as she bleeds out, tremble as she is abandoned in the bowels of a hellish dungeon WITHOUT AN NPC, recoil in horror as she LITERALLY lights this place on fire. This is a very special tenth episode… that brings someone to the brink of death!!!!

Jeremy & Dragon

Mouse2

Jeremy and Dragon!

I love the way that O’Brien’s ‘Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH’ is a book for kids with reletively straight-forward science fiction themes, and Don Bluth’s ‘Secret of NIMH’ is something more of a science-fantasy tale? When I was drawing Dragon, I really wanted him to look like a DRAGON, sitting upon his hoard of dirty laundry.

Episode 9.1 – Oh My Stars & Muskrats

Edit: The original version of this post lacks audio! This one is much better, actually has an episode included!

Betsy gets a mouthful of creek water in her first dungeon adventure! Follow as she puzzles out lewd goblin graffiti and makes a shady deal with a monstrous muskrat!

The High Sciurlin

Warning! Red Squirrel Alert!

The red squirrels are analogous to High Elves, although the more I develop the idea, the further that concept departs from the original. Here we have depictions of two warrior-squirrels in armor.

Neither portrait of these handsome gentlemen are of our hero Dustbin, but I’ll throw something up for him soon.

Episode 6: The Exposition Episode

Betsy buys some shots for her BFF Dustbin, does some banking, and learns some very impressive secrets. GET THYSELF TO SHYRHOLE!

Mice from NIMH

The Mice from NIMH

First Row: Mrs. Frisby, Mister Ages, Auntie Shrew

Second Row: Cynthia, Teresa, Mister Ages again

Third Row: Timothy, Martin, and finally the hero Jonathan Frisby in the right corner.

One of my inspirations to do the game and the podcast came from these illustrations that I made for one of my favorite books and a truly beautiful film.

Episode 5: Where’s My Money?

Episode 4: Flatulence Never Prospers

The witch is out, but that doesn’t mean Dustbin and Betsy aren’t still coming around for an awkward tour of her (or his) creepy death house. These two rodents will do anything to stop The Taint from spreading—even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.
