PostSubject: Request: Images of the Northwest   Wed Dec 28, 2016 9:33 am

Hey guys

Please use this thread to suggest images for the northwest of Artda. I will use these to add an image for a town, realm, etc. In the wiki and as a jumping point when we collaborate on worldbuilding

Images are a powerful way to get the vibe of a place. Here's what I'm looking for for the northwest:

The Northwest is a harsh frontier land that is barely tamed by her rulers. Icy mountain ranges, dark valleys, and dense evergreen forests choke the land, leaving precious little room for settlement and cultivation. The people of Ost are hearty, spartan folk... and excessive finery is looked upon as wasteful and weak.

When providing images, classical and realistic fantasy or medieval images are preferred. "Anime"-style images are pretty off-brand for Artda, but may be ok in some cases.

The northwest can draw inspiration from the lands of The Witcher 3 and Skyrim, both of which fit the landscape pretty well. Nordic images, Viking art, and some game of thrones stuff (winterfell and the north mostly) would do well.

There are plenty of wolves, trolls and orcs of course. Feel free to define and add pictures of monsters you feel would be neat for the setting

The darklands of Kurn are a little different. The most obvious analogy would be something akin to mordor, however kurn is a diverse place of many different warbands, barbarian tribes and monstrous communities. There is plenty of civilization, and there are even bastions of reasonably civil folk just trying to get by. Images of a frigid, grey, badlands-ish place studded with rare, Perhaps even sinister looking beautiful vistas and landmarks is the feel.

Just share a link or host the image here

Cheers

Something like this?




Maybe a gateway to the darklands beyond the mountains?
