    I'm all game for a fantasy mood. But wouldn't it be more challenging to go with this setting and create the characters? Just wondering.... But we already have the 'magic' thing going on with the hidden ones. We could add some fantasy stuff like mimer said or adjust a few things. Any idea's? Omg, the brief is sooo good It gives us a lot of freedom to do what do best and discover new things along the way.

    That said, we need to do at least 6 characters. It will be difficult to divide 6 characters amongst 4 people. Skorpi said she has a full-time job too, so I'm the one with the most time I guess. I'm willing to do two characters. Or we could agree that we all do two characters giving us 8 characters to enter with. But then again...we need to do a good and evil character, so that equals 3 characters with a good and evil side right?....I'll ask in the Topic an Main thread post....

    So if we do a character each, that means we end up with 8 characters, since we have to do a good and evil side. It's also important to keep the races and such variated. So who's gonna do which race/class and such. I'll pick last. Take what you think you'll be able to do and I'll do what is left

    just read the brief now, it has to be fantasy, it is to get the ball rolling on a game the community is thinking about making..ill find the thread ..hold on....just stumbled apon it the other day..http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=162285

    From the sounds of it we have to produce 6 characters, good and bad version so 12 images all up.

    they have got standard races but from the looks of it we can come up with some new ones aswell, and then the classes look fairly generic.

    Ah, briefing is up and since i love P&P RPGs I really love it.

    Time management: Unfortuanally/ Fortunally I'm jobless at the moment, so I have lot of time. So it's no problem for me to do a character more.

    About setting: I like to do some different than classic fantasy. It doesn't have to be very special but especially in fantasy I hate cliches.
    Waiting for answers in the Topic tread, but so far I understand, It schold be possibe, to keep our setting, integreating some more races and a good/ bad schema.

    Two color palettes for the good and the bad one will be great.
    Forgive me my bad english

    Well if we have to stick to the fantasy, which I think we might have to I was thinking of doing a Human Ranger (Except will be more of a special forces unit opposed to a tree hugging hippy) and a warlock, prolly male first the 1st one and female for the 2nd. Unless we come up with something new. Might try and come up with a new race for the warlock just to mix it up abit

    Okay, we have some answers.

    We have to stay in the brief of Daestwen, the High Fantasy stuff. She promises we'll be able to use our brief in the later rounds. We have to do at least 3 characters (equals 6 portraits). Shall we do 4 characters instead? One per member of the team. And, of course, is has to be full body. I'll find the brief and post it up in the first post.

    So after reading this High Fantasy is what we know from the blockbuster fantasy movies? LOTR, Harry Potter, Narnia and such. We have to do something with that. The high fantasy world could be linked in some way to our world.

    We could add something of our own brief to make it a bit more personal. Like the never ending rain?

    okay, lets get those creative juices flowing: as far as setting is concerned the first things that come to mind is.....

    Based on continent that is going through a cival war with the two major leaders fighting to become emperor, but the intial conflict was actually started by a third party that wants to weaken the continents defensive compatibilities for their upcoming invasion.

    Good input AhChu. It could be like Humans vs Elves (stereotype....) . Or we could use the facts Daestwen had given us and use the good and bad side. They both come from the same world. Each time someone is born his/her evil side is born too in the other world. Or something like that. And now the bad side wants to take over the good side to completely rule the world. But there are a special type of species 'insert name here' that are born as superior beings that created the evil side of the good characters to balance the world out so they can live in peace? Or something like that?

    Reference:

    Dungeons and Dragons galeries, lot of stuff: http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/4arch/ag
    Dungeons and Dragons concept art by Todd Lockwood:
    Races, female: http://www.toddlockwood.com/gallerie...demikind.shtml
    Races, male: http://www.toddlockwood.com/gallerie...demikind.shtml
    Elves: http://www.toddlockwood.com/gallerie...03/elves.shtml

    About good and bad: Maybe we can give them some atributs too, like north/ south, fire/water, light/dark. Ok, these are really chiches, but I don't think, race against race work, since we have to do a good and a bad version of the same character.

    how bout we list out, 3 differrent sort of setting each..doenst have to be to involved just keep it fairly basic to begin with? and we should be able to pull it together in a cool seeting to be basing our characters in. sort help flesh out the characters history. we only need a basic outline to set our characters up in.

    1. Good/bad. In a world that is divided with a great barrier. Each side a parallel to the other. Same people, buildings, stores but one is evil and one is good.

    (They both come from the same world. Each time someone is born his/her evil side is born too in the other world. Or something like that. And now the bad side wants to take over the good side to completely rule the world. But there are a special type of species 'insert name here' that are born as superior beings that created the evil side of the good characters to balance the world out so they can live in peace? Or something like that?)

    2. Water world. The world consists of 90% of water. And they fight to gain the right to live on the land.

    3. Underworld. The surface is dead and no one is able to live there due a terrible climate disaster. Everyone live under the world and fight over food/water and try to keep alive. Grow veggies in a dome like building with Earth's atmosphere and such.

    4. Waterworld. Maybe same thing as above but under water? And they don't fight over water but for Oxygen?...

    When we have the setting, maybe we could think about using cultural references? For each race to have a bit more variety. And when and who is gonna do the color pallet?...
