Gean delivered a sketch for the coat of arms of Stratania - if you feel bored, Koldar, this would be something for you. I guess it is well thought up...

Here's the picture and the description accompanying it:



In the centre stands a tall BLACK DESERT ROSE, surrounded by a green ROCK SNAKE. Above the rose is a golden sun representing the BURNING GOD and the heat of the kingdom. On the right bottom three blue, four-pointed stars are representing the three major towns – STRATA, THALAMBATH and BARDAVOS – and the four directions of the wind, because of the important function of the sea and trade.

OK, read the description in the tribe section and just wanted to ask if I should do this CoA.
I think this post means: Yes!! :)

Some questions, though:

-Should the background be brown or is another color possible? Something which fits more to the black rose and the blue stars.

-Four or three stars? Both numbers are mentioned (three towns but four directions)

-Is the shape of the shield fixed? A round shield type was coming to my mind when I was reading the entry. (to give CoA series some variation)

I will read a description of the black rose(and the rock snake if there's one) then. Perhaps I've the time to make the CoA in the next weeks.

Hope you'll like my style, Gean!

Bye, Koldar

Who should do the COA: I know only one person who can do perfect COAs, so I fear this indeed means you, Koldar!! *haha*

Well, the other questions are for Gean to answer.

But as for the Giant Rock Snake description: Is there in the Bestiary plus a picture too.

Brown is what came to mind when I looked at the map of the southern kingdoms. Most part of Strata is sand and desert. But feel free to use any other colour, I'm my artistic perspectives are not as good as yours.

-Four or three stars? Both numbers are mentioned (three towns but four directions)

Three stars, four points on each star. One start for each star, one point for each direction of the wind.

-Is the shape of the shield fixed? A round shield type was coming to my mind when I was reading the entry. (to give CoA series some variation)

Anything you like, I just took something which is commonly used for Coat of Arms. It was just a sketch, I'm not good at doing graphics.

As for liking your style, I don't think that will be a rpoblem, what I've seen on COAs is just great!

Trickery is my business

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
