    So the first idea me and Sushy came up with is a little civilization on the moon with a bit of a middle-eastern aesthetic the middle east can look barren in some places but there are splashes of color in the cities, I'm thinking of the same thing here. A small village of relatively simple huts, but built together so that it looks like a more complex hive of sorts.

    If we do this I think it's important to have a mood about the city that feels very foreign and distant, with unique architecture (the frazetta painting that i cropped is a good example). the moon people are very secretive so it might even look empty at first glance, but you can see the inhabitants in the shadows (who are probably alien, but still humanoid form).

    I'll post a mood board too



    Of course this is just my first idea and we don't have to do that but it's an idea to get us started

    Super pictures Sushy. I love the one with the two boats.

    I like the idea of religion in the future. I dont believe this crap about the future being a secular sciency utopia at all. Im sure there wil be Jews and Muslims in 5000 years, although probably in rather different forms than today.

    I also like the idea of a desert culture adapting to extraterrestrail deserts; I am a massive Dune fan, and I like arabic and persian cultures in general.

    I can imagine that religious sects might be persecuted in the future, as they have been trhoughout history, which might make people cagy and defensive.

    And living on the moon will have interesting effects on the body that might require biotechnological solutions; think the lower gravity and hard radiation.. perhaps as humanity spreads out into space it splits into many breeds (think dalmations, alsations, great danes and chihuahas)

    Check out the Allhambra in Granada, for fascinating ways to make a desert into a paradise.
    I can imagine with some relatively simple tech you could make concrete and glass from lunar regolith (surface pebbles grit and dust) and bake other useful resources out of the surface too.
    But lunar gravity might also allow amazing architecture, or human-powered flight within large domes, or gigantic trees, or...

    Oh i meant to add this

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pak_Protector

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protector_(novel)




    " Pak Protector
    A species called Pak lives on a planet near the Milky Way core. The species has three main stages of development: Child, Breeder, Protector. A Pak is born, and matures into a Breeder, at which point he and she may bear children. Breeders are not particularly intelligent. Around 40 years of age, the root of the Tree-of-Life plant begins to smell delicious to all Breeders, and they eat it and metamorphose into the Protector stage via a virus that lives in the plant. A Protector's joints expand to give his muscles a greater moment arm, his skin wrinkles into a tough armor, and his nails turn into retractile claws. A second heart develops near the groin, the mouth fuses into a beak, and all sexual characteristics disappear. The most important change is that the brain expands, giving a Protector a tremendous intellect. A Protector has no motivation other than the preservation of his bloodline, and to that end the Pak homeworld is never free from war, since all Protectors are constantly trying to ensure their progeny's survival at the expense of everyone else. If a Protector has no children left, he no longer feels the urge to eat and dies unless he can adopt the entire Pak race and work towards their benefit."

    The geography of the Protector world is dominated by circular lakes...
    from where protectors of one family have launched nuclear attacks on another...

    Hi
    Back to the computer. Nice costume Suhy . I done some doodles to.
    Red an article about the climate at the moon. Seem to be a very tuff place to live on. Over 100 degrease C daytime and under -100 at night. But the moon day is 14 earth days so perhaps there is periods in-between when the temperature is tolerable. I don't know about the pressure but I think we need pressure suits.

    those are gorgeous.

    there is no pressure on the moon, it is not massive enough to capture any atmosphere.

    in direct sunlight the temperature is several hundred degrees C, in shade it drops to a few degrees above Absolute Zero. so you need to protect biological people somehow.

    OK so in the spec it says that the main character is a guardian, and that its "His/her duty is to protect it from an imminent harm." I wonder what the threat might be to our moon muslims..

    bit more space mecca .. pretty silly. i doubt theres a way to use the kaaba that doesnt annoy people or seem like a wierd racist cartoon, or its making some off colour political statement about radical islam or the war on terror or something, which is a shame cos it looks so fucking cool.
    ill try some other ideas..
    i remember reading this amazing story where in the future the three abrahamic religions are beleaguered in a almost completely secular society, and buy a colony world between them to make a place where they can worship in peace.
    they make amazing living cities to house their people, but the cities stick to the letter of doctrine, and when they decide the people are sinning or somethng, kick them out into the waste.
    this all happened like a thousand years ago and people barely remember why the cities judged them and exiled them, only that they did, and that they are unworthy in the eyes of God. this has drastic effects on the human society. the idea of dogmatic machines is a cool one i think.
    cool story, though i probably remembered it wrong, here it is if youre interested: http://www.amazon.com/Strength-Stone.../dp/0743452631

    spelled mecca wrong didnt i, d'oi

    That is very nice Velocity. I agree with you we should not make some political statement perhaps just use the cool design elements. i think that it could be a nice mix. I don't think what the threat can bee. maybe aliens, outcasts or an interior enemy. Did some interior enviro.

    ah so that thing is a kaaba lol XD
    I was already wondering what it was

    Great sketches guys
    That last environment is cool too, that window really matches the theme :>
    Sorry I have not been so active lately, work was heavy and the weather has been hot as fuck
    Anyway, I am back agian :>

    Yeah there could be an enemy. I thought of infidels... or people with different beliefs Christians, hindus or... pastafarians? XD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flying_Spaghetti_Monster
    Indeed, we should not try to make a political or religious statement.
    We could also make extreme moon creatures or something that are dangerous.

    I had an idea of a creature but that was not of the dangerous kind. And I wonder if it could live there XD

    Velocity. Nice pictures.
    I love the idea of pastafarians to I mean they can still have these cool arabic elements.
    Sushy very cute crature. I agree we should have some creatures. Perhaps they culd have some domestic pets inside and some geneticaly modified creatures and plants designed to resist the tuff climate on the moon.

    Hi guys, great stuff going on. Im really sorry for missing out. It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me but I will try to make it up.

    I am reading up on the thread right now. To sum up what we have so far, a moon based culture with a Arabic feel to them ? Sounds cool. Can we flesh out the story even more? Are they good or evil? What are the defending themselves against?

    I love the pastafarians story, it triggers my imagination. I could definitely see us building a universe around that

    Some more sketching. perhaps some one can set together a short story and then we can use that as a base and go into more detail
