Entries that ignore the criteria will be disqualified and might be removed from the thread. SUBMISSION CRITERIA Your submission MUST include: A name for your item that is less than 25 characters long. The type of item (Weapon, Ship, Matey) A description of the item’s appearance that is less than 500 characters long. You can check the length of any text you have written at www.lettercount.com Creative names are great, bonus points to anyone who comes up with a clever title for their item. The most important part of your submission is the description. Item creation is a technical as well as a creative process. Give the artist clear and detailed information about the item’s appearance. Remember, we’re looking for information really makes it clear to our illustrators what the item is supposed to look like. You have limited space and the illustrator is first and foremost concerned with key visual elements. Tell us about your item’s shapes, colours, and textures and anything other details that make it stand out from a more mundane object! Note that item stats are decided by our developers so there is no need for you to include them in your description. EXAMPLE SUBMISSION Name: Snolem Type: Matey Description: A hulking golem made of packed white snow. Thick, powerful arms, short fat fingers, and wide stumps for legs. It has a deep chest, large, broad shoulders, and a hunched, combative stance. It’s head is relatively small and is pretty much a lumpy blob of snow emerging from its chest. Its facial features consist of 3 irregularly sized holes in with a faint icy blue glow coming from deep within. OTHER RULES Stick to one item submission per post! You can post more than once if you like, but please don’t spam the thread or your entries may be removed. Consider taking the time to polish each submission a little before putting it up. The effort shows! Don’t include any images! We’re looking for interesting concepts straight from your own imagination, without using existing art as a crutch. Entries that include images will be disqualified. Keep the game’s theme in mind! While we do make some exceptions, don’t be surprised if an idea for a Fission-powered Cybernetic Hippogriff doesn’t gain a lot of traction in a fantasy Pirate realm.
