    Bloody hell i've been camping out in my user CP waiting for an old thread to be bumped with news of EOW100, cant believe im 2 days late!

    This sounds like an awesome round, but im really going to have to shift some priorities about to join in, and im not sure if i can without being a week down. We'll see.

    Its been ages since i read something which would be applicable to this project too, damn. The closest thing ive got in recent memory is 'The Raw Shark Texts' - which would be a lot of fun, given its conceptual nature, but i dunno if it would count, its not really 'epic'. Gonna have to flick through my books and see what would stick before i commit x_x!

    hm...now I am still pondering...
    but thanks for confirming the Bible as a possible theme, chaos. It's vast with ideas but environments aren't that specifically described. Also, it might get a little one-sided.

    I also thought about

    - Neverending Story
    - Journey to the West (chinese tale)

    Vulgar, you have some appealing topics there as well!

    thanks for the deadline extension!!

    Bible= just off the top of my head 1. lion's den (Daniel), 2. Tower of Babel 3. Jericho 4. Sodom & Gomorrah 5. Garden of Eden 6. those pillars Samson knocked over 7. the flood 8. Mt. Calvary 9. Red Sea (parted) 10. the mighty buildings all fallen down (Mark 13)

    I think the Bible is lush with environments.

    Hidey I was trying to brainstorm any samurai era legends but I couldn't think of any. A Chinese tale sounds cool, you'd do good with it. By the way, maybe you could futurize the scenes of the bible if chaos allows it.

    Sounds interesting, but I have never read a book. So... I'll, I dunno what I'm gonna do... I'll jus try to take a existing movie and do alternative environments for it, harder that way, but I won't read a whole book, that's for sure.

    I don't read books either, but I do know the Moses epic. I guess most people know it. That's what I'm going for at least.

    This EOW is epic btw.

    chaos, I would like to change Salvatore to Stanislaw Lem's books - probably it will be "The Star Diares", a speculative fiction book with light surrealistic athmosphere. I think it will be much more interesting than ordinary fantasy with elves and monsters. And challenging, too!

    chaosrocks you are so nice.

    In other news...thanks for the feedback and I am trying to go in a different direction with Alice

    I'll stay true to the general descriptions in the book...im not going to go all Gothic on it...its been done. I haven't played the game, but Ive seen some of the images so ill stay away from that 'dark' look. I'll definitely not to go too Disney bright colours either...although Im a HUGE fan of Mary Blair's colouring designs which are one of my biggest inspirations...hmmm tricky...I think I know where Im going with it visually...I think?

    Lem's Star Diaries would be so cool if you could pull it off, Tonic. Definitely epic...

    No idea if I'll have time for this, but if I do I'm going for Atlas Shrugged. Art deco skyscrapers, heavy smelting equipment, the Rocky Mountains...

    Here's an epic for approval:

    The Great War of Ancient Egypt

    You've never heard of it?
    Here's an overview:
    The Upper and Lower Kingdoms of Egypt are on the brink of war. Peace has existed between the two peoples for over a thousand years based on trade and shared honoring of the sacred river Nile. But in the temple stronghold of Karnak, a new power has emerged. The daughter of a local fisherman, named Ra Ta, calling herself Isis Amuntek (daughter of Isis) has captured the devotion of thousands, claiming a direct lineage from the God and speaking of horrible catastrophes seen in visions unless Egypt is united under her banner. The established King of Upper Egypt and of the holy stronghold of Luxor, Annead Aud, escaped during her uprising to the safety of allies in Lower Egypt, where Isis Amuntek's forces hold less sway. Through a treaty with Tefnut Amun, existing lord of Lower Egypt in the coastal stronghold of Tanis, Annead Aud amassed an enormous army to wage the first war between Upper and Lower Egypt in more than a thousand years.

    Will it fly? I really want to try to do ancient Egyptian scenery.
    Thanks.
