NEW ART HAS BEEN RELEASED ON 11/2/21!!!
Hi guys! I’m really new here, I’ve started work on a WIP called: Kingdoms and Empires. It’s about a hero being asked by a Goddess to complete a quest. The quest will entail you being reborn on a new world as part of a powerful kingdom’s royal family. At the moment the Continent of Nareth is at peace, with the new generation of nobles and power figures being born, including yourself. Armed with the memories of your past life, the history of Earth and advanced technologies, are you really going to make a difference in this new world? Or will it be inapplicable in a world that has magic and monsters? Will you remain the hero the Goddess summoned, or will you be broken by a world that makes no sense? Is trauma something to be shared, or kept to yourself?
You will have close friends to aid you, a family that will support you, a solid foundation you can rely on…but can it rely on you?
I’ve decided to create a new Tumblr page for the WIP. On the Tumblr you will find the map of the world the story takes place! I am also debating with myself whether I should move a large portion of the Codex there, or just use the Tumblr for extra stuff like future plans and the like.
The game is currently equipped with
The Codex will explain almost the entire Continent of Nareth! Keep progressing through the game and unlock new entries about different kingdoms or new enemy encounters!
This Bar ingame will give you a general look at how many of the characters feel about you, a brief description, and a close representation of how they would look using Artbreeder!
The path you take can and will change how you will interact with the world in Arc II, a Politician may be able to play the game of nobles well enough, but political knowledge will be useless for when you need to build a siege engine, the type an Engineer would be able to construct easily!
New Tumblr Page!
This story will require a Gay/Asexual MC to have children.
First up we have the Silver Wolves, the Royal Guard of the Monarchs of Argent, the Heavy Infantry Unit designed to penetrate and fold enemy lines in open battle! During open battle, they use two-handed variants of Maces and Axes, both being held by the Silver Wolf pictured to showcase the weapons. The Mace is used to crush armored enemies and deliver blunt trauma to the body underneath the hard shell of armor. The Axe is used similarly, with a crucial difference: The Vertical Pointed head on the axe can be used to penetrate armor and deliver quick killing blows. In fact, due to the effectiveness of these weapons, they were slowly replacing the sword in Europe before the advent of firearms!
Then we have the Old King of Argent himself, Remiel!!!
We see him wearing the Blessed Armor of Argent, the magical properties quite literally “lit up” due to him possessing the bloodline requiring to use the armor to it’s full benefit and potential! (WE HAVE IT TOO!) The Sword of Argent is also lit up, the stone glowing as well as the center piece stone in the Blessed Armor. Of course, with my overhaul happening and being written as we speak, I will change the armors color scheme ingame to what we see here! As for the actual Sword of Argent and the Argent Armor’s design, I wanted to keep a simple, more realistic design due to functionality and to disregard the “Rule of Cool” that has been prevalent thus far in media. Reason being is because keeping my work grounded is is important to me, as is the weapons and armor used. Practicality in my opinion outweighs the fantastical qualities of let us say the Daedric Armor used in Skyrim.
These were weapons and armor that saw real use in battle, and terrified enemies. Just wanted to explain the reasoning and design choices behind the armor and weapons when some people may have been expecting some anime-esque drawings lol!
And Finally, the amazing artists who drew these pieces of art!
Please consider commissioning them for your future projects or personal requests!
Please let me know what you thought of the art!!!
Currently it’s just over 65k words, so I’m hoping that it’s enough for a good first impression. I worked really hard on the world building and lore of this world, but I would like to know if the Codex felt at all overwhelming, and to see if it would be better to make it even more restricted in the start of the game and unlock more entries as you play.
Hope you guys enjoy!!!
