Hope you guys enjoy the new chapter of Book 2. My inspiration of this world is a mix of Dark Souls meets Numenera. Therefore, there may be sometime before I can get the next chapters out as it requires me building new worlds and adding new meshes as this realm is a mix of the old world with new tech. Im still working on the city of Korinth where the next chapter takes place and I'm hoping I can get that Numenera look just from re-texturing existing meshes. I can port meshes into NewVegas with no problem, but still at a loss with Skyrim.

By the Divines! It looks like you've recreated the actual landscape from the beginning of Tides of Numenera ? and mixed it with the Cemetery of Ash ??. Excuse me while I sit here completely speechless and in awe. First of all it's a genius combination and second that's beyond insane in terms of the scope of work.

Never mind regular compliments - at this point I'm doing a standing ovation for this entry for the sheer amount of originality. ?

 

Taking the story itself into the world similar to that of Numenera really gives you a huge amount of options: from the new technology to different races to various social interactions. And the fact that Neverine is also known in Eden is a very interesting twist. I cannot even begin to imagine what kinds of adventures await our brave heroines but I am definitely looking forward to them.

 

Remarkable work...simply remarkable. ??

Very nicely done, I wasn't expecting this to turn into a sci-fantasy. It will be interesting to see where you go from here, especially if you use some of the more unique race mods that are floating about the net. Most definitely going to follow this!

:open_mouth: Wow, great job!

I really like your scenario choice, it's kind of brave to mix these two genres, especially in such a Skyrim centered forum. I like it a lot I'm really looking forward to see where this is going. 

Also an amazing job with the computer special effects, they looked very convincing. 

 

I see what you did there... Agatha gave them food before giving them clothes... :astonished:

 

Where did you get the gun from? I've been looking for something like this forever. I only found modern weapons like AKs and SMPs and whatever but I was really looking for futuristic weapons but didn't found any. 

 

Btw. in case you haven't already seen it check the Carved Brink quest mod on the nexus, it has some stunning locations that could fit your story and your current world really well, so you don't have to build everything yourself. It also has plenty of outdoor locations in an exotic fantasy setting. I assume you know about the obvious candidates for futuristic locations.

 

Maybe as a suggestion, as this is your second "book" you could provide a short summary of book one in just this entry to make it easier for new readers to start/catch up. It'll basically be a second entry point to your story.

I be honest, I love the dark mix of the place you make, it looks like dark fantasy, sametime as a rot dead planet from some scifi ?

 

Talking about scifi, technology, holograms, plasma pistols from a zombie horror paladin story, that was some insane stuff, holy fuck. ?

 

I just look and see, and think what the hell going on, can't find words.

 

I personally not familiar with Numenera setting, so I can't say too much on it.

 

Mix of fantasy thing and sci-fi is interesting choice, I personally saw a few times, and it can work quite well, now the question is the horror part, after all your story had big part on them.

 

I wonder how the sci-fi will affect that part ?

 

Great work, look forward for more.

Oh my. That's a pretty interesting and unexpected turn of events. Thou I myself a big fan of stuff like Numenera and Shadowrun I still found stuff like this a pretty complicated to combine in a good way. I'm not saying you doing it bad, contrary you make it pretty interesting. Let's wait and see were it goes ^_^ 

And as always - a pretty hot scenes ^_^

If you include the part that the world is connected to other realms/dimensions/realities it does add more flexibility to story telling and story types. But I wanted to do this from the start and it allows me to use different mod aspects as you guys have mentioned. The trick is finding the balance where it should still fit

Don’t forget the greatest sci-fi horror game Dead Space!

Dark corridors with hideous monsters lurking around are always scary regardless if in medieval, modern, or sci-fi setting :)

Now thats true, and I saw horror in all of the mentioned genres.

 

I just look forward the mix you plan to make ?

And i agree as medieval sci-fi is a very, very, very rare thing even in obscure comics.  It’s actually easier to have a sci-fi setting with castles and  swords (Star Wars) than the other way around. And of course the limitations of the meshes I have available in Skyrim to create a blend of the two is a major challenge. 

 

Im also dreading the chapter that may end up being the history class chapter.

Also, the original inspiration of the world was Planescape as the mod esp name of the world I made is planescapeworld.esp and the world space called Sigil.

The gun is part of Merga Poses (no idea where i got the pose mod from)

 

" I assume you know about the obvious candidates for futuristic locations" actually, I do not. I may have saw some in passing, but had forgotten the names of the location mods :(

 

 

"'ll basically be a second entry point to your story." I might do a link at the beginning with a short 3-4 page comic that gives a quick summary of Book 1.

Aether Suit comes to mind which is basically a super large dystopian city within the modern/near future.

And GomaPeroLand which has mostly pool and screenshot areas so maybe not what you're looking for. But since the most recent update is has something like a futuristic laboratory/cloning facility.

Love the sci-fi/victorian vibe, really cool and different.

Thanks! Interesting you caught the Victorian vibe as I was contemplating over the summer the social dynamics and government of this new world and thought of late Victorian era type society and caste.

Woohoo ! That's original indeed ! :smiley: A complete change of universe indeed, now nearer to a steampunk work than a medieval fantasy one.  I'm impressed with the effort on the environments and characters (the dark elves with normal skin color was a nice idea, although it makes the map mismatch on the neckseams more visible), with a good deal of photoshopping to something unseen so far on LL. And the twists are nicely paced all along the story. So much potential here... Impressive job, Drunna, as usual ! :smiley::thumbsup:

 

Malicia : « Uh, they've got guns ? Maybe they've got phones and USB plugs then ? I'd really like an USB plug for my sigil sphere...

 

               Even though I'm not gonna ask it to that weird lady, no. :classic_sleep: »
