Having a Baal.

They say that "hindsight is 20/20". Who "they" are has always been a mystery to me. ;D In my excitement for new games releases, I put together the Summoner desktop, Spell Casters, to coincide with it's release, but of course it was pushed back until a release date of this week. I've also wanted to do a desktop for the release of Diablo 2: Lords of Destruction and didn't heed the warning from Beau of Blizzard that the expansion set would be coming out at the end of June short of a disaster. So, in hindsight switching the release of these desktops would have made a little more sense, but sometimes you just get caught up in the moment.

This week's creation started off with another purpose in mind, but as I worked on it, the desktop developed into the finish product before you. As some of you may recall, I've been doing a series or study of the Diablo 2 character classes. Currently, I'm still missing 2 characters from Diablo 2 with the assassin from the expansion set being one of them. My original plan was to make this week's desktop focus on her, but as I worked on the background I found that I was really happy with how it looked. I didn't want to ruin it, so I called it a wrap. The name, Destruction Awaits, comes from the back of the expansion set box. I hope you enjoy this desktop as much as I did creating it.

Finally, there has been progess at my personal site, Custer's Corner. I've made mention for a few weeks that the teaser trailer would come down and the new title graphic would be going up and it has finally happened. :) There's still a little html work to do on it, but I went ahead and put the entire graphic up. This will be the hub to my web site once it's mapped. It will guide you to all the sections that my site will have. I hope that now this is done the rest of it will develope a little faster. ;D

Until then...
