Default new artwork

Are there any plans to add a greater variety of artwork, like for the sublocations and the avatar pics/icons for the monsters? The graphics look nice for the primary locations, would be neat if each sublocation had its own artwork too. And it's kind of weird when you're fighting a boss that's s'posed to be a "warty witch" and the monster's pic is a blond guy in armor

You know what would be really cool?

If, say the pics for the main areas changed with each level.

Like, say, of the Skyclaw peaks, going from level 1 to level 2 showed you slightly higher up the mountain.

I think if 1 large pic was created, you could change the bit shown to give that effect pretty easily.

That would be a ludicrous amount of work for the artist. There's hundreds of bosses, and for each one to have his own picture? A volunteer artist shouldn't have to even think about that kind of workload.

Yeah, I see what you mean. But every single boss wouldn't need its own individual pic. I would just like to see a little more variety for the monster pics. Instead of one pic covering every type of humanoid monster you run into, or outworlder, etc etc..

Also, I wasn't even aware the artist was working on a volunteer basis.

Our artist is most certainly not a volunteer.

We have no plans to put in pictures for every single boss, monster, etc. It's simply not feasible for us.

If anything (and I'm not saying this will be soon) we would love to have pictures for each sublocation done. Given that we get every bit of artwork drawn and/or painted this would take a while to do.

Ah agree, but would it be feasible to have a picture for the female mobs?

Maybe some talented players could submit some potential pics for sub-locations?

Drawing on the playerbase for donations might work.

The problem there is that it wouldn't all be the same style... that could be rather jarring.

Unless you ask people to make it all in the same style...But that would be rather demanding given the current size of our playerbase. We may be growing, but we're still pretty small.
