    Maybe since as per the instructions for this particular Epic EOW 100, we aren't required to post a text description for what we create, the title we make up (text title? design? logo?) of the RPG we're creating the 5 environments for is very important?

    Hey I gotta speak up about you trashing the Wheel of Time but letting RA Salvatore through without remand haha.
    Also just to try to help someone else out, would a specific epic from the dragonlance setting be ok? Just saying seeing as you let the Drizzt Saga through which is just a series from the Forgotten Realms setting.
    All that said I dont want to do any of those things. I was thinking either Bryce Courtenay's The Power of One or Yann Martell's Life of Pi. Life of Pi would be tough to come up with locations as most of it takes place on a lifeboat but I think enough are certainly there.
    I might take on Hitchhiker's guide if everyone else abandoned it as well.

    Arttorney, oops, missed that one, go for it, I will go instead for "The Nibelungenlied", translated as The Song of the Nibelungs, is an epic poem in Middle High German.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nibelungenlied

    If that's ok with you Chaos.

    I saw that Dubious, thanks for being so kind and pointing that out, I was looking for another one, so I am going to do the "Volsunga saga"; The Völsunga saga is a legendary saga, a late 13th century Icelandic prose rendition of the origin and decline of the Volsung clan. It is largely based on epic poetry.

    Roxie, The Fairy of Dawn is Lang's piece from the violet fairy stories? Just checking...

    If so, is it permissible to make the dragons (for example) part of the environment? If I attempt this, I'll be taking an extremely abstract approach...which is why I'm asking.

    Could I do Gabriel Garcia Marques '100 Years of Solitude' or 'Love in the time of Cholera'? If not I'd like to do some stuff from Ovid's Metamorphoses.. hehe, there's a lot to choose from.

    ok

    Vyse you are welcome to the book of revelations If you think tyou can pull 5 interesting environments out of it

    I'm sur eyou all are rrememberingthat you are NOT illustrating these stories, but are making environments from them

    TobbA-- wheel of time is approved.. (ugh)

    Rob yeha you saw the note on the popol vuh.. I must look that up


    Adele- I mean that the layout of your final presentation should be considered. including format of any titles or text you use. but basically this is a visual, not textual challenge

    dubious, Im not crazy about Salvatore either, but thats just personal preference.. they are better written. and why the hell are you wasting my time arguing about stuff you don't wanna do anyway?


    Robmorphin Volsunga saga is fine

    Ilaekae. yes thats the one, I have a first edition. and yes dear Dragons can definately be integral environmental elements

    Vulgar good suggestions, some of which are already on the list. not sure Macbeth is really that epic though, nor is sleepy hollow.

    Mishkin275 _ great idea. I adore 100 years of solitude. you can have Ovid if you like but I think its less visually vivid (personal preference again)


    2kre8- Neuromancer is fine

    AJV/. sure it's on the list... but you won't be the only one

    To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

    Sir Gawain and the Green Knight
    King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table
    Frankenstein

    I was thinking about Altlas Shrugged, that would be sweet, a challenge for sure and very different from other things going on here, huge railroad stations, that old factory with vines grown over it. Wyatt's Torch would be awesome to draw.


    But I'm currently halfway through the book so I don't think I could do it justice without knowing it fully.

    I'm thinking of some awesome ideas from medieval epics, I want to know if these are fine because all are awesome, I took a class and had to read them. I couldn't put them down. I wanted to know if any of these are fine to do, anyway here they are:

    Hartmann von Aue: Erec

    Hartmann von Aue: Iwein, the Knight with the Lion

    Wirnt von Grafenberg: Wigalois, the Knight of Fortune’s Wheel

    Wolfram von Eschenbach: Parzival

    I might do Wigalois or Parzival

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parzival

    Eon...by greg bear

    I read the book when they did the cgtalk challenge way back and it immediately became one of my all time favorite novels. Although I never went through with creating any visuals...I figure better late than never.

    chaosrocks thanks for the reply....so this challenge is not the usual concept, design and paint an environment? I did this image today...is it not on the right track? as I was just going to go and paint it? Am i meant to be laying it out in a certain way? This is the only one that was set at this angle because of the location...the others will be straight-layed out environments...flower bed environment, rabbits house, tea party etc etc etc. I have seen some environment designs for the LOST RPG and using them as a guide...http://www.nuro-art.com/

    btw...there are so many posts on here about book choices...I wouldnt even dare to suggest Twilight as I think I may get a boot in my face as it not really epic...but THAT would be an awesome game

    Oh gods.. this is such a great idea for EOW100... My heart leapt at the idea of tackling the weird and wonderful world of Gormenghast, I absolutely adored the first two novels, Tidus Groan went off on too weird a tangent for me though.

    Though on thinking, I finished Count of Monte Cristo a couple of weeks ago, and would love to tackle some of the grandeur the environments in that book would have. Would that count as epic, Chaos?

    And an extra week would be just the incentive I'd need to tear myself away from the CGTalk Steampunk challenge for a little while and try this out instead.

    Greetings from Poland. Is "Eden" by Lem okay? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eden_(novel). Not-so-much epicness, but many interesting enviros are there.

    kilz eon is fine
    adele- you're o a good track, Alice is gonna be a hard one to keep away from existing images.
    zephyri I meant to put Gormenghast on the list, count of monte christo would be fine as well

    aer- I love Lem, and Eden is fairly epicish... don't thin the translator was quite as good for it as it was for "memoirs from a Bathtub"

    i am contemplating an extra week

    I'm kinda surprised that no one has picked Naomi Novik's Temeraire series yet, with its "what if" take on the epic Napoleonic Wars by dragon interference. I mean, Peter Jackson has even optioned all of her books now for movie development (he just bought the options for her last two books per the publishing newsletter I got earlier this week). Doesn't mean that they will actually become movies, but you never know.

    I own a copy of Song of Roland and gave it serious thought, but I find the prospect of drawing a thousand mounted armored guys with spears a rather daunting challenge. Most of the environments are either that, or a thousand dead armored guys lying around with gore. There is the court of the moorish king and the court of Charlemagne but then after that we're back to all those dudes and horses. It's intimidating. I might try it now, just out of cussedness, but damn!!!

    is romance of three kingdom ok?
    the scene in koei's take (on all gaming platforms, PS3, 360 etc.) really sucks for me, and the new red cliff movie doesnt do it for me either... but then it might be way over my league...

    rationally, i should tackle one with more architectural theme... maybe the fountainhead... is that epic enough??!!!

    franz kafka's k?
