Dare to Dream

When Tales Take Life II

Fallen Gods, Inc. is celebrating their 5th year being open; a part of that celebration includes the annual Election of the God and Goddess. I really wanted to do something inspired by their theme of dreams. Originally I was pondering doing something with their Biologic Line and bubbles, but when I put on the parchment skin, the visual of swirling storybooks and scrolls grabbed hold of me.

So what story did take shape (quite literally)? You tell me in your comments!

On a technical note, the quality isn’t as great as usual because I had to really fight with the ongoing/returning high-res photo glitch (the awkward ‘stitch’ lines across at corners where it’s larger than your screen). With mine, it cut up the lighting/contrast into quarters. The shadows added such a unique detail being cast through the store and provided more depth to the flying scrolls, so I ultimately had to go with a lower resolution. This is an issue that goes across multiple viewers, and I’m not exactly sure why Linden Labs has not tried to actively correct it. I guess they’re not embarrassed enough?

Matron Delma of Mystara

Bonus photos! However, these do have a story to them. Above is Matron Delma, my main character in Realm of Mystara; as you might be able to tell, she is not a drow. She’s just a crazy-cranky matriarch of a fae family.
