oooo, yes yes Sarah and Kenneth. Awesome Awesome. Little ideas started to run around.
They're tickling each other, laughing n crying. Like a summer rain. ???
I'm ready to go and explore more on post #44. Keep on playing, keep on shuffling things around.
Who - demigods and humans n neutrals. demigods of greece vs demis of egypt?
Are we doing titan demis vs titan humans?
I'd like it to be titan demis vs common humans. [No Hollywood ending; This game you'll never beat].
Where - Mountains , bridges, paths. A transitional location. Portal to an Oasis. A dance floor. A battle floor.
When - Yes to that one in post #44.
Why - Conflicts are always nice. Story as to what they're fighting for can always mirror how it is now. Justifications for survival over another. Any reactions can work.
A cool looking battle scene? or reality of conflict depiction. [No happy faces].
oooo, Are we doing 8 characters or 10?
---Switching - I'm not too sure about that one. I'd like to fully flesh out
one or the other and make the other race pay. hahaha.
I was thinking we can switch every now and then, with little adjustments added;
but the majority of work will be done by the same members. Yes/No?
/back to the table.

pumpkin is climbing my back at the moment, coughing in my ear ind leaking poisonous substance on my neck. looks like she is feeling MUCH better than me. still I have good excuse to draw in the night when she cannot sleep and sleep on my arm leaving second one ok for tablet
I cannot get myself around myth style, I think ref hunting will set me right if only I will bring myself to do such terrible exhausting job like concentration
Uhm, in terms of myth hunting... I'm just thinking battle scene around 1300-1500AD
Hybrids I still vote for. Just keep exploring for this remainder of the week. With whatever energy you have.
We'll widdle it down ready for play. K.

OKAY I had a brainflash that I needed to dump on you guys real quick.... Then I'll be gone for around 30-40 minutes and then on for most of the rest of the day/night
Somebody earlier said something about robots, which was an idea that scared me because... I'm not used to it. This is what CHOW is actually for is it not? Let's push our boundaries...
Why couldn't our good players be more organic, more Greek-myth like... .and the evil versions have veered sharply away from the organic, to the point where [as dwardo was talking about in earlier posts] they are losing their "humanity", their... whatever made them them... and if not fully robotic, at least very much meshed in extreme body modification of the cyber-sort.
Just something to think about, I will come back and read the stuff you guys have been posting in a little while, because I see that you have posted today XD
Oy, Liz don't get too excited about the robots.
No sci-fi was decided in the brief. They would've been sweet to do indeed, but we can always try some hybrid of some sort. Just get their background stories developed along with it. mwah mwah.
I'm feeling better about the no sci-fi thing, because last night I kept thinking that they might not be cool with that in the mod thread. Besides, I was starting to feel all mushy in the brain area about how some stuff was going to be incorporated... but never mind since it's a mute point now anyways.
I'm going to start some sketching now, I'm liking some of the thoughts/sketches floating around... And KenSIR I think the Waterhouse is spot on... That would be my usual palette as well, so it seems like at least a few of us are extremely comfortable with that.
As for the switching thing.... I'm feeling dubious about that, but I can see where you're coming from. I think maybe if we just kept showing each other WIPs when we get to designing, and then do brief paintovers and then let the initial artist decide what to do with it, that we might get things done a little faster? Then again, the thought of switching it up a little bit here and there and working on a different perspective might be refreshing for the whole team. Okay crap, I've just muddled myself into indecision LOL
As for the races, it said specifically in the rules that we need to have more of a random smattering... So I think that we should pick more than two, or the mods may force us back to the drawing board. And I think a couple of them should definitely be more... stereotypical High Fantasy fodder, such as elves/dwarves? And then have... whatever else we were thinking of, like I was thinking of a Faun, and I keep seeing some cool Minotaur looking critturs in posts in here.
Anyways. That was my brief two cents, now I'm going to go sketch and wait for the man to come fix my air conditioner *CRIEs* it's literally ninety two degrees in my apartment right now and 90% humidity. blah.
What I've gotten done in approximately an hour... I'm debating a whip, or maybe some kind of flail or mace? Depending on what the primary weapon would be, he might have a dagger or something.
Just kinda fooling around with shapes and stuff, I need to research goat legs and horns.
Dude. he looks like he's about to start a DANCE FIGHT
Also, looking back through and thinking about the mountains thing... I keep picturing them being like, big, difficult to pass/live in type of mountains, Himalaya style. Which makes me keep picturing a lot of harsh weather/snow and very warm clothes, as opposed to the more drapey and light Greek clothes... Almost more like Mongols? Dunno. Just throwing stuff out there. It would give us something more in the way of armor/weapons to look at. And even more of a reason for dispute and quests and stuff like that... you really would have to fight to live in a place like that, and resources couldn't be taken from someone else without a huge conflict starting. *shrug*

Awesome awesome ... hahaha dancing fight.
Sarah and Ambient, keep going with your directions.
I like everyone's ideas so far. Let's just keep drawing.
I love that Polska heart, and this Texan clutz.
Just throwing it in.
1 dying human
2 hybrids - Linds' Faun and Sarah's creature from the portal.
1 neutral/assassin/war monger
In the bad lands. The base of mountains that hug a coast line.
Summer or Winter?
Kenny, are you taking the human character route?
I really want to do some type of hybrid/ some kind of monster.
Forget the neutral for now, but something to think about I reckon. [well, I've been thinking about it]
George, stop working and work on this.
I'll post some kind of shapes in 8 hrs. I really need a *hahaha magical spork. I need a nap.

Thinking my other character might be some kind of elf or dwarf, something to help fulfill the "high fantasy" part of the endeavor. That or I could stand to do that dying human that you listed. >:F That could be really interesting.... dunno. I'll futz around here some more once I get things in better shape over here, this day fucking sucks so far. [have a napful nap. I hear those are nice]
