Behind That Other Username – A Look at Retvik

Some of you with a keen eye might have noticed that I only really use the name Medic here on the Daily SPUF. These days, I don’t play Team Fortress 2 any more and I’ve become ill-fitting of such a username as I spend more and more time doing anything but healing people in video games. On Steam and Discord, where you can have any username you want, I use the name Arkay, based on the protagonist of the Phoviverse. Old accounts made before I became known as Medic are often called Phovos. But nowadays, I’ve been using the name… [Continue Reading]

On Building Universes Again

A long time ago (literally nearly two years ago actually!), I wrote about building universes. In that article, I went on about how I had a MK3 universe and all that sort of thing, about some of the characters, things like that. It’s been a while though, so maybe it’s worth talking about what happened in those two years. Well, in those two years, I kinda… I changed my mind. Basically, the more depressed I got (and I was REALLY depressed in February of 2018), the more I was writing about Kinisis wanting to break and change everything. I was… [Continue Reading]

31 Days of Inktober

Quick Warning – lots of images ahead. Turn off mobile data if you’re using it! The images aren’t that big, but if you’ve got a small amount of data like me (I only have 100MB a month), you’ll want to save it. So I decided to give Inktober a go. One picture a day for the entirety of October. It’s not like I need any more things I need to do, what with my 500 words a day, keeping this site going and all my real life stuff that has to be done in a day. Basically, Inktober is one… [Continue Reading]

A Completely Out of Context Story

What happens when a bored Medic writes a story about two of his main Phoviverse characters then plonks the finished result here on the Daily SPUF with no context what so ever? Nothing. You get a story that’s completely without context, that’s all. It’s about time that I gave these two a decent story that didn’t involve pain and misery.

Tea with Death

Tea with Death is a series of stories set in the Phoviverse, following the hugely conflicted god-like being Tenuk as he meets up with the one being who can truly kill him, Death herself. Each episode is set at its own semi-random point in time. This story chronicles the first meeting between these strange beings. The rest of the series can be found in the Tea with Death section of the Phoviverse wiki. This was supposedly the afterlife. Heaven. The shores of Kinigi, to go by its proper name. It didn’t look like anything Tenuk expected. No fluffy clouds or… [Continue Reading]

On Building Universes

I doubt any of you noticed, but I made a small change to the Daily SPUF lately. I changed the main menu, adding a Links page, linking (duh) to other things that aabicus and myself have done, mostly just Youtube links. The offer is out there for any other regular contributors to put their own links there, but right now it’s a bit sparse. The only thing there that’s mine is a link to the Phoviverse. The Phoviverse has been mentioned once here before. SilverWolf seemed to like it. Then I got an email from disguisedcyclone saying that he liked… [Continue Reading]
