Naming the project
Did something unusual yesterday, and went through my box of childhood memories, which I haven't done in a long time. You see, ever since I played my first video game, or held my first gamebook (which at least was like twenty something years ago), I always wanted test my abilities and create an rpg game of some sort. Almost forgot that I had this list of ideas/maps/rule books/hand drawn screenshots and levels/bestiaries/etc., and always pretended to be a game designer, and thought that others might want to play my games as well (like when I did a Q-basic game at one point). It may sound silly, but looking back, that was all I did in my free time; despite the fact that there were very limited resources at my disposal. As a token of my appreciation, towards my younger self, I thought to revive an old title I used to call my fantasy ventures: EOTH, which is an acronym for: Evil Of The Hellfire. I've no idea where this name comes from, or what purpose it has, but at the time it sounded quite the metal!
From the underworld
And while I was searching, I came across an old drawing, that was sketched after a somewhat horrible dream. It was a monster of some kind, that lived in the depths of hell, on its two legs; and towered above the horrid flat lands. It supposed to be a gate, that wandered the underworld, and fed off the souls of the dead. It was so enormous that the poor thought out its shade, whenever it stopped, and piled up on one another; whilst trying to hide from the boiling sunlight. I even remember seeing, how the unfortunate fell down from the skies, and met with this abomination . . .
And because I named my Untitled ARPG project, I thought to celebrate it with a new concept art! So I modified the design a bit, and went to town. See for yourself below! It still has two legs, but instead of having just spikes, it has an additional plethora of eyes, and all of them can open up (sort of having a jaw), and a couple of mouth on the top; just to spice things up. It's a bit hard to see, but its legs are also crossed (whilst resting).
Guess that's it for today . . .
And let me know what you think!
