    This Universe Makes No Sense (Aveyond Fanart)

    I had the sudden urge to draw Te'ijal.

    This Universe Makes No Sense (Aveyond Fanart)

    Wellp. I was tired of explaining my whackyland because it would bore the old viewers to tears. Basically in my bizarro continuity, Agas/Rhen is a couple, Rhen eventually went with Agas to do daeva stuff (long story short, basically the daevas are like the demon realm's government, hence paperwork). The one who became queen of Thais is their daughter Rhen Jr.

    Video game

    It's really much easier to be sell games today than it is before, what with the Google PLay market... If you make an app, sell it for $1 and 1000 people is willing to buy it, you get $1000. But as with any business, you don't know how many downloads you'll get in any given time. Ditto Bryce about risks. There's always a risk.

    Agas and Rhen chilling in their free time... In which Agas makes lots and lots of origami flowers from junk documents and then Rhen braids it into his hair. Because... because.

    Announced makeover of Aveyond 2

    Ean's faceset AND sprite are both generic, so there's nothing wrong with his appearance, IMO. There's no problem with the Snow Queens herself, what with her sprite being Vague McVague forever as well. I don't particularly like the over-sexyfied dress but eh. I can deal with it. It's just the fact that it doesn't match the game at all that bothers me so much :S

    Announced makeover of Aveyond 2

    Ditto all the common complaints. The AV2 crew were nice people, but I thought they were bland. I just don't care. The AV3 people makes me mad sometimes, but at least they have personality. But at any rate, I already have grievance against the new cover title. The old one was good. Unless Amanda's shifting the focus to make the game more about Ean than it is about Iya, the cover title is misleading. And heck, the artist even got Ean's weapon wrong. He uses a claw, not a sword. Minor nitpick, but still :S

    Announced makeover of Aveyond 2

    Definitely not. It's made with FaceMaker, which is a freeware face generator. And re: scenery, I... have to say I'm not entirely fond of the tilesets. It's too pixellated and clashes with the characters. RMXP sprites are still smooth, even though not as "glossy" as RMVX/Ace's sprites. It's a bit too much to ask to rework the tilesets, tho. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who complains about the tileset anyway.

    RMVX sprite issue

    I have my item sprite be put in a big charset to save space: This is the event screen: I've set the graphic to be the animal skin, but... sometimes the teacups would show up instead: https://31.media.tumblr.com/4a039fb842950626b833ef3f09b6755a/tumblr_mxbks6l78v1sckaego1_1280.jpg[/img] I figured it might have had something to do with the direction the animal was facing, so I tried commanding the sprite to face the right direction, but sometimes teacups still show up. So... How do I fix this?

    Mapping

    Make it 9 squares if you really don't want to see the edges completely, then.
  11. daeva_agas

    Mapping

    I think it's not the resolution, but the SIZE of the house that makes the spaces change. RPG Maker XP's screen is 15x20 tiles. RPG Maker VX and VX Ace are 13x17 tiles. So long as you're not on the edge of the map, the player character will always be in the middle of the screen. So... you will have to leave at the very least 8 blank space between each house in RMXP or 7 in RMVX/Ace. 9 if you want to be extra safe.
  12. daeva_agas

    Mapping

    WEll, if you have many maps, it could get confusing which house is which. I mean, in the map dock you get "house 1", "house 2", etc. With one huge map, you have to be careful where to position the maps so that you can't see the other houses' interiors. It would look rather awkward to be able to see the other houses.

    The goddess in my opinion rules over both sides. Whether or not people actually believe in her is irrelevant. To extend on that, my headcanon goes this way: Shadow Aveyond is the "main door" of sorts between Demon Realm and Human Realm. This relates to the whole thing about Aveyond being the link between the two realms. The name is "Shadow Aveyond" not because it's dark/evil, but because it's a shadow of the real Aveyond. A weak copy. It's only there for function's sake. And then "demons" don't always want to rule humans. Most of them don't even care. But every once in a while crazy ones show up and then problem happens because the Shadow Oracle keeps on helping them. That's why the goddess dissolved Aveyond in AV2, keeping only a small portion of it available, just so that the connection is not lost completely. Only after situation is back under control that Aveyond is rebuilt. I won't elaborate too much because it's out of topic, but in my headcanon Ahriman also made a huge mess in Demon Realm way back before AP, so that's why it's dissolved in AV2. After AV1, the Demon Realm government has to sort out the mess that Ahriman made first. Sheian Lyr has a statue because that's where the stray humans mostly land when they somehow stumble into Demon Realm. Because of Shadow Aveyond's presence, any "illegal" door to Demon Realm would throw the person to somewhere near Sheian Lyr. You have to steal from it because Demon Realm's law of existence is wonky (poison = medicine, anyone?). The "main doors" connect to each other, provided both sides are open. Anyone who passes "legally" will land in the door of the other side (Shadow Aveyond and wherever the human realm door is). Anyone who passes illegally, or if the door on the other side is locked, will land in the nearest open (illegal) portal or somewhere near the main door. "Legal" permission to cross over can only be obtained from the Real Oracle or Demon Realm government. But yeah, that's just me and my theory.

    That interpretation makes no sense. "Binding" means "tie together". If she meant "keep separate", she would have said that Aveyond is what "separates" the two realm, not "bind". Unless that's an editing error and whoever wrote that was sleepy and didn't realize they made a mistake :facepalm: http://24.media.tumblr.com/9438541d2a01b5dc2479a9524299fbd4/tumblr_mvxmpyomEI1sckaego1_1280.jpg[/img] I never knew Shadow Aveyond is spelled "Sheian Lyr" :roll: The very reason why I brought up the darn statue in the first place was because it's in Sheian Lyr, which is a demon village. I still say that the Shadow Oracle is like a robot/puppet who helps anyone who came her way without discerning between good and evil. That still makes some sense. Why did she help Mordred? Because she helps everyone, evil intentioned be damned. If Ahriman comes along and asks to be sent to the human realm, she'd probably do it. Why did she send Mel off with the tainted staff? Because to HER, there's nothing wrong with the staff. It's just a super-special-awesome weapon and Mel is allowed to have it because why not?

    Stuff Happens (Non-fanart)

    Gallery of original stuff. Directory: - Seven Deadly Sins An adventure otome/romance game about steampunk pirates I want to make. Officers (captain, first mate, doctor, etc) on board the titular ship Seven Deadly Sins were named after the seven sins. No fantasy for the most part, i.e everyone's human and there are no demons/spirits/vampires/gods involved. Though because this ain't Earth weird-coloured eyes and hair are to be expected. * Pride initial designs * Lust initial design * Mornginstar/Venganza de Valeria sketches *

    Well, it does ripple (which I apparently failed to capture). It was supposed to be sake poured into cups, so it's a gentle pour that doesn't splash around :S

    eastern cave system soundtrack??

    Hmm, the Eastern cave system? I have both the old and new soundtrack and they sound more or less the same. It's the same melody, but with different instruments. Do you really need the old version? But if you really must, it's called "hestia" by Aaron Walz. I think he sells the Aveyond soundtrack somewhere, so you can try looking that up.

    First, the "WHERE DID DRUIDS GO???" question needs to be answered because that's the whole point The shrines looked like they've been abandoned for a veeeery long time. If all the druids up and left at the same time, BEFORE Gyendal even started to do anything, it could have been that Rashnu wasn't even aware that there was anything afoot when he left :S I mean, remember that Gyendal isn't doing anything weird before he found Mordred's book, and that is NOT very long before AV3 started. It's not like he's been at this project for hundreds of years! I would give it about a decade or so prior to AV3 because he said he spent a few years looking for Mel. Even then, he MAY have not made his discovery public. If nobody knows what he's doing, there's not any proof that he's doing anything that needs to be stopped at all. Plus, there's this new vampire council that didn't seem to be there previously. My headcanon is that Rashnu was the previous governor of Ghed'ahre, got bored, established the council so the vampires can take care of themselves, then left to do... whatever. And about Gyendal... well, remember that the vampire public didn't even KNOW about the orbs until Gyendal made his public speech in AV3? I supposed Gyendal only told his minions and Te'ijal about it and nobody else. Te'ijal didn't like the idea of enslaving humans and they got into a big fight over it. Then Gyendal ran off and the rest is history. But that's kind of beside the point. I still wonder just what is up with Demon Realm. The Oracle said in AV2 that Aveyond bridges Demon Realm and Human World and it would be BAD if Aveyond disappears, so... WHY????? I mean, if Aveyond disappears, what would happen is that the Demon Realm would be lost and then it's a good thing, right? No more evil demons! That is kind of important because there's the goddess statue in Demon Realm too! You have to steal from it to increase your luck, but hey. The mirror-Aveyond portal DID lead back home. The Oracle may be helping both Mel and Mordred, but she still DID help Mel home. She never promised she'd be home untainted. So the human-demons connection is kind of an important thing to consider in relation to the goddess.

    Bah, you replied before I was done editing my post. That's the point. Green Rock Temple WAS actually dedicated to a god: Ahurani, the god of agriculture. So... the druid serve minor gods individually, but the "great goddess" entrusted them with the Sword of Shadows? And because the minor gods become irrelevant/told them they're allowed to retire, they just retire and abandon the temples? Or maybe the druids still believe in the gods, but the people don't anymore so they run off elsewhere because they don't need to answer to people anymore.

    Hmm... seeing how Green Rock Temple was desolate and overrun with weeds even when Clearwater is still alive and running, looks like the people simply shifted religions. Which makes me wonder AGAIN what was up with the druids. They WERE important enough to warrant being targeted by Ahriman, so... whaddup? The Oracle said "Look, let me be in charge alone now so you won't be in danger", maybe? I mean, they're not just random priests serving some god. They have some kind of power/importance to be keepers of the Sword of Shadows!

    I don't think the Oracle is fully the goddess in flesh. She's either an "avatar", a sockpuppet or meatsuit for the goddess, or a prophet/priestess who the real goddess speaks through every once in a while. When she doesn't have the goddess's revelation, she doesn't know anything. Then every once in a while, the goddess would possess her to do things when it requires heavy-duty intervention, like timetravel or nymphs going whacko. There's a reason why in religions the ultimate God doesn't go tromping around solving problems for the people. He makes them do it themselves, BUT with His help. Something about "God doesn't help those who don't help themselves". Maybe the goddess is also like that. If she goes and fixes everything for the people, they won't even bother to try and would just treat the goddess like a magic-genie to grant wishes.
