After years of creating my world "Khorghil" and after publishing most of my work here on DA, there is a new home for my child created:
(or just typing in your browser)

This is the german HP about myself and my best friends wich are helping to write down my dreams. When you enter the HP just click on "Projekte" (Projects) and then on the big box "Grundbuch".
There you will find ALL TEXT and ALL ILLUSTRATIONS about Khorghil. Of course it is all written in german but all the pretty welcome Non-German-Speakers will find some Picture treasure, wich are not published here in DA :-)

I would love to meet you there at my blog!

Hello Markus,

I see that some of your works are under Creative Commons licence. Could you confirm that ? I would like to use some of your illustrations in a non commercial roleplaying game.

I need a map for my novel 'Ages of Aenya'. I am interested to know what you charge for this kind of work. Thanks.
