    CHoW#237:: Modern meets fantasy


    DESCRIPTION
    New age has come, and people in fantasy world now live in peace and harmony. It is a time of development, modern design and technology. Everyone lives their ordinary lives and working for the betterment of the society in huge cities and metropolies covering the earth.


    Design a fantasy character working in today's society.


    Examples:
    Scientist gnomes
    Businessman elves
    Dwarf truck driver
    Orc janitor
    Ogre policemen

    Things to remember:
    • Can be male or female
    • Any fantasy race is applicable, as long as it is a character, not a creature
    • Keep in mind to make the character fit into the job that you chose
    • We do not want to see warriors, it is a time of peace after all
    • The style and era here is modern, not sci-fi or steampunk


    Good luck, and be creative!

    Oh man, this is gonna be hilarious. Dark elf escort girl anyone? Or Orc bouncer? Or for the meme of memes: An undead mage working as a programmer at a certain MMO company?
    This is a gold mine :p

    OMG seriously ....I shivered for a moment when I read this ...this is truly awesome ! its rare that, given a random topic, immediately images shot through my head but it did this time ! hopefully I can manage something cool because folks I am on fire for this weeks topic ! I was/am a HUGE fan of SHADOWRUN the pen&paper RPG ...if some of you need inspiration go for it ...its basically a world exactly like the one mentioned in this topic ...for those who know nothing about it: the setting ( when i first started ) is the year 2056 ( the latest edition starts in the 2070s) in Seattle, WA its said that its our world (plus Cyberpunk) but Magic has reawaken, and a huge epidemic in the 2020s activated long lost DNA sequences so that some men started to evolve into Trolls, Dwarfs, Elves, Orcs ezc ..basically all the fantasy races possible ....so go for it and google it its probably one of the best universes ever created in fantasy-business hugely influenced by late 70s and early 80s Cyberpunk ...created in the 80s its packed with freaked out shit and ideas and guys like PAUL BONNER drew a lot of the images for the game ...I personally think this (Shadowrun) might actually be THE ressource of inspiration for this weeks CHoW ...will upload a picture-sheet later on

    thinking of: a elvish Firemage making Hot-Dogs with its own Fire, or the Gnome Chimney-Sweeper ......the actual Gnome being its own scrubber ^^...stuff like that

    stay tuned
    Seb

    i know you said no warriors, but seeing as todays world is anything but peaceful, i was wondering if the rules could possibly be stretched to include an ancient race that has been influenced into joining a miitary of one of the super power countries? i think that might be relevant to the topic, no?

    no worries ^_^ It's just we've had quite a few 'warrior' types over the past few CHoWs and so this CHoW is all about thinking outside the box

    Oh this is PERFECT! As someone who plays D&D regularly I always wanted to play a modern setting, alas the rest of our group wants to keep to a fantasy setting. This will be my first CHOW, let me play around with this idea and see what comes up.

    Damnit nicky! That was my first thought. Seriously.

    My alternate concept was to have a snotty rich elf chick ala paris hilton walking her fuzzy little pet dragon. And a bunch of dwarf construction workers giving her catcalls and making rude gestures.

    Man you guys are so crazy fast!! You leave my head spinning :p

    Partisan- amazing inspirations- these pictures really get me fired up for this challenge too!

    NickyBeats- this really made me lol. Love the guys sliding down as the giant bends the beam

    ChaoticKnight- WOW! This one is so awesome and fun- I'm in love already

    Jager- I think I especially like the two people standing next to him like there's nothing unusual at all about the Orc (plus the orcs face is made of win)

    Here's my first little sketch- I started thinking of dragons for some reason- imagining what they'd be doing in this modern world; and the idea of a modern fantasy zoo popped into my head- with an elf for a zookeeper. Not too sure about it though...

    When you say "Keep in mind to make the character fit into the job that you chose" does that mean you can't make a character that challenges the archetype? Say an Ogre (known to be large and less intelligent) is a scientist rather than a gnome?

    Cool topic! I really shouldn't since most of my spare time will go into the workshop I'm doing atm, but hard to resist!

    Hmm, Troll tax auditor? Dwarven bartender is a bit obvious I guess, especially in an Irish pub or something... Gnome designer ? Elven stewardess / beach volleyball player / lingerie model ? Orcish show wrestler? Halfling oktoberfest waitress? So many choices

    @chaoticKnight: Wicked! The concept alone is golden already!
    @(lark: lol, that sounds awesome actually!
    @NickyBeats: heh, reminds me of For the Birds! The sandwhich is a really nice touch.
