Ayoooo It’s your boy Dr. Rampageo here for my once a year post on the site (LOL). Read on to hear all about the shitshow that was 2021, and my plans for 2022. Better late than never right?? LOL….
I don’t feel so good…Man oh man, what a god awful year this has been. Listen, I understand it has been a tough year for US ALL, but JFC 2020 hit me hard. I lost far too many people this year. I lost friends and family to suicide, gun violence, old age, and both my father and Ralph to heart issues. All of this has really put my holiday spirit down the tubes, but it has made me re think my own life choices as far as health is concerned.
Last week the Art World and the Indy Toy Scene suffered a huge loss. Ralph Niese passed away, and judging by the outpouring of love for dude he touched a LOT of lives. Seriously so so so many Indy Toy cats had Ralph do work for them at some point. Add in the artists and art fans his incredible style touched over the years, and the world as a whole suffered a massive blow. I was lucky enough to have talked to Ralph many times over the years. Whether it was on FB, October Toys, or any number of message boards across the web. I was even luckier to have commissioned Ralph to do two pieces for me in the near decade I knew the guy. So I really wanted to open the archives, and get some of that stuff on here for the world to see, and to stay as a monument to this man’s genius…
The famed Gatonian Thief Grar is a long time friend of Prince Algor and Toron . His chosen profession is a source of embarrassment to his Mother and Father, The King and Queen of his home nation of Gato. Despite this he still has a good relationship with his parents, and his littermates. Grar is most close with his brother, the Barkeep at the Faulty Compass Inn and Tavern, Oliver. While his profession may be less than noble, Grar himself is a true soldier of good who continually puts his life on the line keeping the planet from the grip of evil.

Long overdue post here…with everything going on I totally missed the 7 year anniversary of DK, and long time fans will notice there hasn’t been much toy related…or much news at all from old Doc. Well I’m here today to rectify that. Take a seat champ…we need to have a talk.
The moons cast their soft glow upon the streets of Karnok as Thulf walked down the uneven cobblestone road weaving through the market district. It had been a quiet Knight for the Cityguard, and he was eagerly awaiting passing by the taverns to grab a flask of Grog. He barely heard the soft rustle of fabric in the alley to his left, but he couldn’t miss the unmistakable death rattle of some unfortunate soul he heard from a few stalls down. Thulf spun around, drawing his sword as he ran back towards the alley. As he made his way between the stacked crates and barrels he heard a light tapping on the roof above, but he was too distracted by what his lantern had revealed! Slumped against the alley wall was a corpse, a corpse that appeared to have been there quite some time based on how incredibly dried out it looked. Thulf pulled his bell from his belt and started ringing it to alert the rest of the Cityguard to his position as he wondered if this would get him a bonus from his superiors. Unfortunately for Thulf he wouldn’t be doing much of anything after what felt like a sack of bricks landed on top of him. Thulf’s last thought in this world was just how dry he felt… Continue reading “The Butcher of Karnok”
