QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What Sign Are You ?

Postby Triadian » Sat Aug 29, 2015 4:25 am

In Days of old, when knights were bold, they would have upon their arm a shield and adorned their horses with a caparison denoting the colors and blazons of their faction.

as such we would like to allow you create your own blazons and have upon them many wonderful emblems, such as these (random image from the internet)

so heres the actual question, what types of image would you like to have as a charge on a shield or banner that maybe we havent added yet. try to keep the suggestions as realistic as possible and while you might want a giraffe wearing a top hat and carrying a rocket launcher as your emblem it possibly will never be used again so ideally we would like replayability from the symbol also try to let us know if it should be 1 plain color or an intricate drawing with true to life coloring.

think a reset and wipe will fix that...

You might want to look through some tarot cards for inspiration -- lots of cool symbols to be found there in case you run out of ideas (depending on the set, at least).

Regarding the last bit of the original post, I don't think emblems should employ much more than about 2-3 colours for the sake of realism (of course there were exceptions, but nowhere near as many).

Are there any plans of allowing players to upload simple images for their crests (maybe for a cost, to prevent undesired results)?

its not so much running out of ideas - i bought a pack of 5,000 - of course we dont want all 5,000 so i need to weed out a few - so making sure i dont do something like - no-one would want any of the 45 leopards from the leopard set

so not bother using any of them - if someone said something like i like leopards and fish - i could narrow down the leopards to a few possibly the one with the fish etc.

im trying to stick to the general rules of heraldry although there are some unwritten rules such as no metal on metal which i am not following to the exact letter - the testers will soon get a tool to play with to help us sort some things out for the better.

we did have a talk behind the scenes about allowing user uploads and the system we have will allow it - although due to copyright and boobies etc we may have to manually check each upload so there will no doubt be a delay before uploading and having the Blazon-Hash, which you could use on your guild blazon.

whether there will be a cost either in-game or out of game was not discussed.

I do not know if vectorization of concept images is helpful. But I have some pretty powerful software at my disposal.
Be more than happy to help in any way I can.
