Hopefully you have already met Ramthor on your smart phone or other smart device.  He is the main character in the tower defense app, Ramthor’s Tower: Maze Defense, brought to you by N-1 Games.  But there is only so much we can do on a phone app.  Ramthor has so much more depth and personality than he reveals to us in his one dimensional game play, which, while lots of fun, can only, by virtue of its required brevity, reveal so much about its main character.

Coming soon, however, in publication, is Ramthor’s complete story.  Again, complete, in so much as limited words and art can reveal.  Just like anyone, Ramthor is multi-dimensional.  He is complex and deep.  He is indescribable.  

Yes, he is fantasy.  He is half- man, half- beast just like he appears in the app.  But he is also so much more.  No doubt, you know someone like him.  You might even be like him yourself.  There is no mistake that he is delightfully relatable.  The good, the bad, and the ugly shine through to reveal a complete person. His entire story is worth reading.  The complete Ramthor will both irritate and entertain you.  You will both admire and revile him.  Ramthor is that dynamic personality that draws you in, and, at the same time, makes you step back.  His story is worth a read for many reasons.

  1. Ramthor is a type eight personality.  He is bold, defiant, willful, self-confident, and confrontational.  Reading his story, you will instantly relate to someone you know, maybe even yourself.  As Ramthor emerges from one level to the next, you will see the personal growth that is possible for this personality type.  You will both honor and redress him for his choices.  
  2. Ramthor’s story is rich in metaphor and symbolism.  The art in the manuscript is beautiful, telling much of Ramthor’s story in the stunning and dramatic artistry.  This personality type is illustrated in both the art and the metaphor, describing Ramthor’s personal journey to become his true essence.  
  3. Ramthor is a survivor.  From Ramthor’s basic fear of being controlled to his basic desire to protect himself and others, Ramthor is a leader.  Throughout his story, you will learn to trust Ramthor, knowing that his deepest wound is learning to trust you.
  4. Ramthor illustrates that being vulnerable is all right.  For Ramthor, learning to be vulnerable is what saves him.  Vulnerability is his most difficult and, yet, most endearing trait.  You have heard of big teddy bears or big bad wolves.  That is Ramthor, wrapped up in one giant hulk of a character.  
  5. Ramthor will make you glad you knew him.  Ramthor’s story doesn’t end in this manuscript.  He lives on in Rayna’s story (type nine).  He loses much in his story.  He loses his horns.  He loses the love of his life.  Weakness?  Failure?  You will have to read to find out.  
  6. Ramthor’s journey is, by design, everyone’s journey.  If you are not a type eight like Ramthor, do not think his story is not a part of your own.  We have all types in us.  Somewhere in Ramthor’s journey, there is a message for you.  Your reaction to Ramthor will tell you much about yourself.  Let the lesson be a mirror that you can observe it without judgment.  It is simply a reflection for you to see and think about.  It is deep.  It is profound.  It is Ramthor.

As the student gains more experience in assignment writing, the quality of the assignment writing increases. The student also gains command on using Microsoft Word with the passage of time.

I like the Ramthor character because he is bold, defiant, willful, self-confident, and confrontational!)
