    STETTING

    We write the Year 2209. It's raining all the time but people don't have to go out. Technology is important, nothing works without. Big skycraper citys, a worldwide digital world you can visit every real place and may new ones. Big long cable hang aroud overall to make it possible. In exchange, people dont travel often in real. (they are boring, so I think, our protagonists wouldn't be like them)
    On the other side a lot of poor people travelling around, seraching for jobs, food and a place, they can stay. They are branded by the settled people as lazy thiefs, scalawags and terrorists.

    So the Outsides building groups. Reined by a few Magicans called "the hidden ones" because they stay behind drapery. Nobody exept the samurais (loyal fighters) know how they look like. In reality they are full body cyborgs with only the brain left. Able to do magic because thex can use the energy a normal body needs for magic (not so important, how it really works)
    They all have a lot of guardians called samurai, strong fighters with a suicide mechanism controlling they didn't betray their master.

    Ordinary traveller are under protection of a "hidden one" and pay for it.



    CHARACTERS:
    Who made wich and Colaboration teams:

    The Hero Lostlimeturtle and skorpi

    The Shadow AhChu

    The Protector AhChu and ¿Dubious?

    The Sage ¿Dubious?

    The Technician Lostlimeturtle

    The Rabble Rouser skorpi

    Hey guys, really sorry for the late reply Ive bee naway for the weekend so that meant no CA will make it up to ya's.
    Just a brief intro my name is Jayson and I work full time at a advertising agency doing graphic design and over the last 2yrs getting back into my drawing.
    I work digital in Photoshop and have a Wacom, I think since Im the bung one for timezones Ill be using the team sketch book heaps for communication ( awesome in setting it up by the way) but will also have msn going if you want to abuse me

    Im totally down with sci-Fi theme, I think if the is a preferable character ya wanna do let us know, and from there we can divy the sub group characters up.

    Just reading the ideas you have come up with already sounds good, I get an overall feel like ghost in the shell / blade runner thing going on

    Ideas -

    Hero - Could of been a courier or mobile safe for the Cartel. Dumping memories for storage space. Containing top secret infomation ( KFC secret herbs and spicies etc.) imbued with a few advance cybernetics abilities

    Shadow - Comes across as her bodyguard, purhaps worked for another cartel and is helping her in her journey to retrieve the lost infomation which he also needs for whatever reason
    Advanced cybernetics

    Protector - Found Hero after her meltdown, and is trying trying to help the poor girl out..maybe reminds him/her of a sister they had lost earlier in their life.
    samuri like character, know alot of the world. proberly an old character in the late 40's purhaps

    sage could fit in with your HIDDEN ONE idea, could be cool

    Thats all ive got so far bout characters stories
    as far as setting I'm loving the raining all the time
    purhaps cities are over polluted and its always dark and raining, no plants and the like.

    Heya guys im linking the Shadow at the mo, seems like a cool, but if anyone else wantes to do it let me know coz all of them seem funky...but the main character freaks me out
    character...actually all of them seem pretty sweet. as far sa the "Magic" is in the topic have a look at www.theredstar they have these characters that cast through technology..its pretty cool. will start looking for mood images to compile for ideas and refs on character and enviro

    Just a small summary:

    The Characters
    The Hero - No designer
    The Shadow - AhChu
    The Protector - No designer
    The Sage - No designer
    The Technician - Lostlimeturtle
    The Rabble Rouser - skorpi

    Collaboration teams (Due to timezone)
    Team A: AhChu and ¿Dubious?
    Team B: skorpi and Lostlimeturtle

    If you're okay with it and all, we can start looking for some references for the characters we picked. You can post them here if you want to. It also would be nice to search for visual material of the world we're designing the characters into. The official deadline is Wednesday, but forgive me on being so picky. I just want to get started soon! xD
