    Conceptart Cohesion - #001 8th Day



    Storyline:

    The year 2446 CE

    Mankind and its technology have advanced at an exponential rate, however trivial political, religious and social demands have caused the splintering of former superpowers into smaller nation states, pitting themselves against each in a number of minor conflicts.

    Since 2395 a minimum of 27 conflicts, hostile incursions and border disputes have been raging in various confined areas across the planets surface, sparking a new global economy.
    Covenants of major corporations have banded together in various factions and are now the true international players, feeding the ever increasing demand of new weapons technology.
    The change in style of warfare has rendered weapons of mass destruction virtually useless increasing an appetite for more unconventional weapon systems, specifically the VidaNova Corporations newest developments in the field of creating new species of animals bred for specific purposes.

    The idea behind this new move is too harness the animals natural intelligence, sensory abilities, and ability to traverse difficult terrain. They are currently working on models for civilian implementation, ranging from beasts of burden for remote areas to leisure models as pets. However there have been worrying reports of certain products escaping from captivity, and having unexpected effects on the flora and fauna they interact with, conspiracy theorists place blame on a huge range of subjects, ranging from the Cytarabinoside used in manipulating metabolic pathways in the animals, to mother earth resting control back from humanity to satan himself.
    Some minor political and religious groups are already rallying, trying to bring this series of unnerving events to the public eye, wild rumors and conspiracy theories are already calling this the 8th day of creation.





    Subtopics for the weeklies:

    EOW
    - Environment Of The Week

    VidaNova Corporation - Genetics and Biological Materials Department - Site C
    Somewhere along latitude 14 South, this large isolated facility of the VidaNova Corporation Houses several small but vital research, development and construction departments. Intelligence suggests they have recently made large strides in the fields of tissue synthesis and behavioral adjustment of their products.
    Visual reports describe massive, and entirely self sufficient architecture, housing at least 300 hundred employees including support personnel, Vehicles, holding pens and the suggestion of a large underground tunnel complex.

    Mystical Cavern Temple ProNatura
    Abuse and contempt of mother nature lead the way for ProNatura - a group of people who denounce the reprobate behaviour of VidaNova and the likes of them. This peaceful and reasonable group lives reclusively in hidden places like in huge caverns, arctic wastelands etc.
    The most popular base of this group is the Mystical Cavern Temple. A very huge cave with an amazingly beautiful and mystical temple built in. The temple offers unequaled opportunities and is called the 8th wonder of the world, with a certain allusion to the fateful term of the 8th day.
    The architecture and lighting atmosphere of this place describes the wonderful relation of the inhabitants to mother nature and their will of getting back to the roots while rejecting all kind of violence and abuse against nature.

    IDW - Industrial Design Of The Week

    Mother Machine -The Birthplace and nurturer of all the genetic childern. Mother Machine is responsible for the caring, hatching and growth of all breeds. A mammoth of size and a true marvel of technological feats. Mother Machine, is a true vision to stand before. While Mother Machine is stationary(non-mobile), she does have defensive measures; such as automated turrets and threat sensors.
    LINK: All entries - poll-thread

    Genetic Soldier Transport -The Genetic Soldiers built by the Mother Machine are transported by AI-Controlled transports. The Transport carrys up to 24 soldiers and speeds up to 60mph. The transport has no proper defenses. The Ai has been programed to say as close to the ground to avoid being seen by enemies.
    The Transports are built in mass, and the blueprints are often improved overtime by FATHER Machine.

    ChOW - Character Of The Week

    Leader of the Special Unit Jungle Force - specialized on hunting down escaped and mutated creatures. These guys are called when there is trouble with escaped creatures preventing attacks and damage caused by them. We need a charismatic leader, strong-willed, professional and cold-blooded - one who will survive in the jungle and accomplishes his mission under any circumstances. Of course he must be presented in the special units battle dress.

    "The Head" - Chief of VidaNova - "The Head" is the founder and chief of The VidaNova Corporation. This man had a high position in the army of one of the leading states. He was known for his merciless command and for despising countries hostile to his own. His hate and cruelty made him a much sought-after target for the adverse military but also even inside his own ranks.
    It wasn't a big surprise when he was a victim of an assassionation attempt. He survived the assassination, but some areas of his body were mutilated and deformed and could only be recovered by bionic technology. After this radical experience, he lost his position in the army, but due to his good connections got a high position in a different section of the military. He worked as a high ranked consultant in the research division for alternate military resources.
    Reflecting his own life-story to the military area he was fascinated by the idea of military units which are partially organic and partially technological. The succes of the first resulting military units and his pertinacity and ambition made him the leader of the research division. With the achieved power and success he was able to gain independence for the institute, which resulted in founding VidaNova Corporation.

    COW - Creature Of The Week

    Mounted predator for hunters - A creature made by scientists by mixing genes of existing and extinct animals...there are also some mechanical/technical parts implemented in the predators organism. The predator must be able to be mounted and is carnivore, making him a living and very aggressive killer machine. We need to see something like a saddle, where the hunters can sit on, but you don't need to draw the hunter himself. The creatures full body must be seen.
    LINK: All entries - poll-thread

    Giant Suicide Digger - Difficult terrain made it very hard or even impossible to reach military targets which are hidden in dense jungles or high mountains. As an alternate to the obvious units attacking from the air scientists created a new species which is a result of cross breeding different species with ability to dig their way through the ground. By manipulating special genes they created a huge creature which is optimized on seeking elektro magnetic signals...
    The defensive structures of the strategical buildings are producing electro magnetic signals in operational mode, which is an indication of the enemy buildings position. The Suicide Diggers are genetically programmed to search for this kind of signals and follow them with fatal certainty until they find the source. When they have found the source they dig up to the surface. Inside the creatures built in technology parts are programmed to detonate in a devastating explosion when breaking through the surface, resulting in a total demolition of the targeted object and the digger creature itself of course.
    The loss of a highly developed creature seems high, but is very small compared to the destruction of a military target.

    Many effort, sweat and time was invested in the artworks, so the runner-ups are honored with an image, too...

    Also to show how different 2 worlds can look, even if the story and descriptions are exactly the same...welcome to the world of conceptart!

    2nd world - the runner-ups

    Fozzy, this looks like a really sweet idea to top off the other weekly threads. Can you give us some more info on how you want to run this? I don't see an overview of this anywhere...

    it's already over...

    The weekly activities were thrown together to one campaign like:

    1 common backstory, but 4 different subtopics for each weekly.

    Maybe there will be another in future, but no plans right now...it's very time consuming...

    Hey Fozzy, I just noticed that you gave me credit by accident for one of Masque's drawings, the one with the green cavern at the bottom right of the runners up page.

    Strange if you look when i started this thread and when the first replies came, hehe...i think it's because of the hidden placement in the community head section...
