Design Notes

End Your Week with Something Ghoulish

Posted by on 69 comments

Yergen here! It’s Friday, and I thought I would show you something that Thyton was working on. He likes to sometimes just doodle. But his doodles!!!

creature design AQ3D concept art MMO

Look at this creature! Just looking at it makes your imagination run wild. What is this creature? Where would it live? What does it eat?? If it were to attack you what would you do? I know I wouldn’t want to run across this in the middle of the night. Could you imagine waking up in the middle of the night and seeing this perched at the end of your bed? *shudder* We have made a lot of improvements in the game engine and the characters. Next week I'll have more stuff to show from Llusion, and Thyton as well as maybe a model or 3D model or two... maybe. Well that’s it from me. Have a good weekend!

Sorry Comments are now closed for this post.

utaro: well, by looking at it, i'd suggest it would be a ghoulish halfbreed elf like thing that is nocturnal, but can go out in the light and mainly hunts in high places like trees. Though it looks a bit familiar, in a good way.

1c3 R3b0rn: Hmm, I like the concept, just feel the exaggeration on the fingers make it look slinky. I do however, really like the mouth concept, 2 bottom/top teeth, with vertical ones as well.

Tiamaat: hmm, for some reason, other than looking like a ghoul, it strikes me as being like a cricket or a locust in humanish form. I think it's to do with the mouth. Also, that's a doodle!!!! My best doodle is more like scribbles or stick figures at best! WOW! I can't wait to see what else you all come up with for this game :D

Zereldo: Its clear that it lives in ruins and abandoned villages, that were still in use when they got there. They slowly encroach on civilization, praying on the weak, those large eyes causing the brave to stagger and run rather then fight.

Lol well I want to see it in 3D now :D

.Joerte
.Joerte: This looks like some of the drawings from the design notes when the pre registration was postponed and the team went back to the drawing board. The drawings themself look sort of like a undead goblin kind of thing. I probably would have said troll but the character with the metal belt looks a LOT more like a tree.

As for its backstory they could be the goblins that were wiped out from the goblin city near Skuldor Crypt called Agrad Terra. They could also have been wiped out by beings from Skuldor Crypt.Thus making them undead.

As for what they would do nowadays they would probably go through human and elven cities and obliterate them due to their low intelligence and an evil and twisted leader causing them to do that.

As for what wipes them out is a final massive war between humans and elves (on the same side) fighting undead goblins. When the undead goblins have nearly wiped out the opposition the mighty pheonixes join the humans and elves in combat. The undead goblins quickly retreat so they are not wiped but gain the the help of trolls (beings with belts) and come back and fight they're opposition. But only to find the humans,elves and pheonixes have gained the help of many heroes (characters).Then the trolls double cross the undead goblins seeing that there is no hope for them if they stay on the same side.That is what wipes them out.

As for their lifestyle they live on the edge of an uninhabited large river. They eat anything they can even if its inedible.And their predators are other undead creatures,pheonixes and necromancers.

WOAH massive post and 10 minutes that I should have seriously spent doing other things.I cant wait until we see these monsters in 3D.

DaneChieftain: Whats so scary about that? Thats how i look in the morning before the first cup of coffee.... thats completely normal.
Im sure when this fella just gets his coffee, get washed up and put some clothes on, he looks just as "normal" as the rest of us - he might even work in a bank or....... on second thought; he looks more like a lawyer

=P

Xen-AQ3D
Xen-AQ3D: should be an insane creature that lives in the jungle, hopping from tree to tree, and lunging down to grab and eat prey. The first encounter could be one by a river, inspecting and then trying to eat something it finds on the ground, only to notice you partway through and let out a hellish scream

Relenam
Relenam: Hmm, very cool and interesting doodles! I suppose they do look like ghouls, but...

Would it not be strange and intriguing if they were not just monsters, but a playable race? I mean, think about it. Wouldn't it be interesting to be one of these... things? (Especially if, though they look absolutely scary and creepy, they could be evil as well as good. I would enjoy that immensely.)

As to where they live, (Mind you, this section is my brother's idea. I loved it so much that I agreed with him on their home.) it could be an underworld of sorts. A land just below the surface of ours. And there, you walked on what we would think of as the ceiling! Their entire civilization could be up-side down to us, attached to the ground beneath our feet, while it is completely normal to them! What a wonder it would be to travel there. It would certainly be disorienting.

As to what they eat, I agree with what the drawing says when you mouse over it. They would devour souls. Though I find that dreadful, it would add another depth to them... the creatures of nightmares... that you could play as! It could literally rip your soul out with its claws and feast upon the very essence of your being. (Awful, completely awful.)

So yes, I believe that would be a fun use for that drawing. I hope you enjoyed my creative, albeit very long, post. Thank you much for listening! :D
