Hmmm... The picture to me seems primarily to represent a drawing (e.g. of a Santharian artist) of a sad woman that collects her tears in that bowl, so I would have imagined it to be some sort of tragic figure.

So that quality of the pic would somehow be lost if we'd explain it as an image that primarily shows the clothes and beads - know what I mean? That's a difficult bridge to build, because these beads you see integrated in her dress could have a deeper meaning, that these are her tears. At least that was my impression.

Hmmm, I guess you are right.  It does seem more of a mood picture than the sort of portrait which I would have used it as.  It is a lovely dress though ;).

Well, maybe one could use parts of the picture only to illustrate the beads...  huh

Can I do that?  And would it be strange if the full picture was then used later on?  I won't want to stop the full one being used, but then I suppose if it was used you could always change the caption below my smaller part to fit with the other entry? 

This sort of thing would be what I would go for....

Hmmm... Well, it is possible to use the picture twice and use just a crop as you've done here. (Though the focus on a woman's breast is somewhat strange, I admit... lol )

oh yeah.....well....um....I was doing it very quickly!  buck  I would be happy to have someone else use the picture again if you and they were, by using the crop I would only be saying that the dress was made by Milken Brownies.

Would it be possible to use just the background of Arbaon's "Archer" picture for one of the passageways in the Lorehold?   (maybe at the courtyard where you go outside, or for the passageway from Gamoren's room to the outdoors?) I don't think we can use the archer for that, but the background is a nice piece of architecture and I thought he might have it saved separately as well.


Oh, and the background of the Skeleton piece is nice as well--if we have a storm coming up over the Lorehold so you're told to stay in anyway...

Hmm... I can ask Arbaon for larger versions so that we can make crops... The right part of the Archer pic surely would be possible to use. At the courtyard however we now have a double door that is anchored in the game with conditions. So this is not shown on the pic, but we might find something else... Passageway out of Gamoren's cellar room might fit better.

At the Skeleton picture it is difficult to get out a proper crop, however. Well, we'll see.

Looked at other Arbaon pics - we might have some interesting stuff here for other adventure areas, like in Nepris: A really cool graveyard, and there could be something hidden under those roots we have in the final picture there in the resources...

Hey, just wondering if I could use Faugar's #31 - Santharian Peasant I for my Leifloff entry. That's just about exactly the way I imagined him, and I plan to finish that one within a day or two.

Yes, that picture could be used for that purpose - if you can explain the shovel in the picture description, even better :)

I already had ideas for it Arti  :)... let's just say he's not the typical researcher. Does a lot more field work than actual writing... He looks exactly the way I imagined him somehow, so I'm thinking I better use that one.

     Would just like to bring up my question from before. Would the picture Sheil #19 - Deadly Creatures fit for the Wolf Overview? The first myth, A Battle of Evil was inspired by the picture. Was looking around it caught my eye.
     "A Battle of Evil. This tale dates back to the War of the Chosen, to the time when drakes and wargs served dark masters. They played their parts in the destruction, revealing in the power of holding the life of one in their grimy claws. They enjoyed the disaster and chaos. While both demon drake and warg fought for the same side, they were bitter enemies all the same. Trouble was brewing behind their own lines as the tension between beasts grew and the time for trouble drew near. The dark mages were blind to the trouble boiling behind their lines, believing they controlled and held both beasts in their grasp... and so it came to be that on one of the darkest days, the battle broke out."
     Just thought I'd bring it back up since the small discussion on it got lost in the help that the entry recieved. :)

Ah yes, this can be integrated there right away. I'll see to it :)

Could I use Sheil's #25 "Frozen" for the making of an ice dragon 'person' entry? Provided we are allowed to make draconic personages (obviously as long as they are kept rather mysterious).

Though I don't presume to be an expert, I'm pretty sure dragons are not a sentient race in Caelereth--there are plenty of them in our bestiary but I don't think any of them are sentient, Fox.  Is that what you had in mind by "dragon 'person' entry"?
