About Me

About the Pocket Myriad

Complete with silly hat.

Hello everyone! I’m the creator of Pocket Myriad. I go by the names Cirian and Tilveran, depending on the community.

I created Pocket Myriad to talk about my interests. I try to live smart, drink a lot of tea and have an enduring fascination with humanity. People are really weird so it’s little surprise.

And now a little about each section of the magazine :


Turns out, I write a bit.


I’ve had many inspirations and a few transformative experiences to boot. One reason I went with the name Pocket Myriad was because I wanted to share some diverse experiences that might help other people too, not just concentrate on gaming. A bit like many traditional print magazines, it’s nice to diversify.

Additional topics will appear over time as I see fit. Check out the category to see what I’ve written about and have fun looking around.


My coverage on ASMR originally began as a subsection to Eureka!

I’ve experienced ASMR since childhood and the ASMR community is one that I’m only getting more and more involved in. I love that it’s gone mainstream. Personally I get it from sights, sounds, smells, touch and mental stimuli. I think it must be to do with the brain’s empathic qualities.

Entering a trance through ASMR is also possible. When it’s strong I can also experience a “jump” into other people, although that can happen in non-ASMR circumstances too. I can only describe it as transcendental.

If anyone’s curious about my personality type with regards to how it might influence ASMR sensitivity, I used the test at 16Personalities to find that out and my result is INFP.

ASMR is weird and wonderful. I hope people explore it and study it more.

Games: Guild Wars 2, Pimander, Unreal 3

I cover a slice of the Guild Wars franchise that I started playing in 2005, until I fully retired in 2019. I wrote a few guides from 2015 to 2017 that I share on Pocket Myriad. Perhaps they are still useful?

Pimander is a fantasy game I developed by myself over a 5-year fit of insanity (joking about the insanity). And then I had to market it, which I didn’t know anything about. I didn’t make much money, but I learned a lot.

I also once made Unreal 3 maps. Unofficially, as a modder. At the very least they look good, and I was proud of how well they played with bots too. Epic’s software was a joy to use – good times.

Finally, some other information :

Domain Name Registrar : Namecheap

I’ve been a customer of Namecheap.com since 2015 and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. In fact, I also found them through a recommendation and they offer additional services beyond registering your domain, such as SSL certificates, VPS hosting and dedicated servers. Check them out today.

Affiliate Links

Around the site I use affiliate links to refer interested visitors to parties who pay me a small tip to refer traffic to their sites. This does not cost you, the visitor, anything extra. All it does is help me to earn a living. Note that you will typically end up with a “cookie” on your browser when you follow a link, that gives me the credit for sending you.

I will only ever send you, the visitor, to sites that I know and trust myself. If I do not earn your trust then I do not deserve your business.
