On The March Once Again !!!!

          So I have split with IBM. Thank god that night mare has ended. Lets just say my idea of a American icon is shattered and we will leave it at that. So the company is on the march again this time to a job where people can use my talent to it's fullest. But like I said I'm not feeling to confident about this country at the moment. I have been working with my Lesser Key of Solomon concept. An idea I started maybe two years ago and never got to develop (Thanks to IBM.) But we have been working with the last month. So I am posting some old work to reminder everyone of the original concept. So we can see where we started and where we are today. Brad if you reading this I should have your spy glass done in a couple of weeks. I plan to just model it along with the host of other props that I have to work on. I'm by myself so it takes a little longer. Anyway without further a due
welcome to the night mare that is THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON.

     OK So this was the original idea. A grim fantasy world (I mean grim. You know all that bad stuff you read about in books. people burning at the stake, peoples hanging limbs in trees, well that's all in this game. For you see I have come upon something in my inward search and that is truth is far more scarier then fiction.) Where the peasants are controlled by brutal nobles. Evil societies sacrifice babies. A world gone mad. Like today. ;) Into this mix we through the THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON a key that promises omnipotent power at a horrific cost. The game would be a mix of RTS and RPG you would control a group of guys or gang. And go off terrorizing the country side for good or ill it was to be left to you. (Fable ;) Magic is rear but humanity is in a renaissance of technology and architecture. Long gone are the elves and dwarfs but there ancestors can be seen in the little people (Hobbits). And there magic long forgotten, but still remains hidden deep with in forest's and far below ground. This was to be the world of  THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON.
I am a huge Warhammer fan. (A game for the rich.) And have a soft spot for the fantasy setting. I mean I grew up with it back in the 80's. So I am putting that in the mix for good measure. :)
 OK that was they original kind of idea I had. I love movie's like The Last Valley and Flesh and Blood. If you have not seen these I highly recommend them. They are old but fun films and should give you a little better idea of the era I'm shooting for. Here are the original character designs and concepts.


      OK So I think that was a good reflection on where we been. Next where we are going, stay tuned.
Be safe everyone.
