    A bit of reference toward the current ideer... staring in the iheadlights... ending up on the iroad as iroadkill.

    Team Chow II:  Team Obsidian

    I've been thinking about the heavy use of furs to help insilate the wearers from the cold, it will be almost necessary for anyone in these climates to have heavy layers of clothes, Metal armor will definately be of hinderance because it will not only keep from insulation but in some aspect it can amplify the cold. But this doesn't mean that the metal can't be interweaved into the furs and clothes. just as long as the under layers aren't effected.

    Just a couple thoughts...

    Thanks CD, you are right about incorporating the furs for warmth and the armor for protection, it will be a challenge.

    Team Obsidian - Theme

    In the ice desserts of the arctic wasteland warring tribes battle to control the few remaining fertile lands left. A once proud and ancient culture now torn between disgruntled factions of a once thriving civilization. To some glory comes from power, power of full control, but to others simply surviving means living another day .....

    OK, I have chosen to do Foxtayl Icerunner. A beautiful and graceful mix-blooded woman, half human and half fox. She is a ranger sworn to protect the animals under her care and a valued healer known for her skill in the art of herbs and magiks.

    tim that is a wicked little wip so far How do you see him turning out to be.

    Debbie, that is an interesting start.

    I have a few little thumbnails, I figure I'll go ahead and do something human.

    Debbie - Love the wolf's head! Also I don't know if I'm gonna add any armor to the big guy, maybe some seal bones on the shoulder or arm. I plan on having some ornate tattoos covering his body.

    Shawn - nice studies looking forward to see what ideas you flesh out.

    I think we should really look into the an inuit influenced wardrobe for these characters. They obviously are very functional in the frigid temperatures. It's practical for our time period, in terms of being comprised of natural materials. Also the patterns and colors are amazing!

    'nother sketch to show off his size & doodles:

    I agree about the Inuit color scheme Tim. We should try and be consistant. I think I will bring Foxtayl out of 2D mode and incorporate the traditional rust and tan color pallet. Especially since this range of color hasn't changed much in the last say 2000 years which will fit into the rules/description requirements nicely.

    What about weaponry? I think I'm going to go with a dagger and bow+qwiver of arrows. I'm thinking that a sword on the "big guy" will be a bit too obvious though.
