Some Recent Concepts

When I last posted the Turath info-dump I said I would probably have another post before the monthly Wrap-Up. Well, here it is.

Firstly, let’s start off with sort of a recap of the last post, but in a different form. These two images are a work-in-progress of the Sentient Species dossiers that I have been working on, these specifically of the Turath. There are a few things missing, namely some concepts that really stand out for the first page, as well as some face sketches I haven’t yet finished on the second page. I haven’t put up a lot of the physical statistics of the Species yet either, which I’m planning on putting on the first page.

Turath Dossier Page #2

On both of the pages- but more clearly on the first- you can see the species’ logo/emblem, eight interconnected circles. What information I do have is the pronunciation, hex-code for colour, a general description, and some notes on the species as a whole. Hopefully these two pages will grow and expand soon. I’m currently working on the Avotoc one (though it’s just about similarly unfinished), and I plan to work on the other Sentient Species upon completion of the kickstarter.


Now, onto completed things! I have two sets of sketches, one of a main character Skeli, and another Avotoc we meet later in the book, Mis’Kelin. On each image there’s some notes on the character, their clothing and weapons. The forward-facing view portrays each character in their normal gear/attire that they often wear throughout the story, with some different outfits to the right.

  1. A voulge is supposed to be something heavy and impressive. Something which I wouldn’t imagine this skeletal creature to lift. This “double voulge” looks more like a double bladed lance with odd shapes.


    1. You might be too familiar with JRPGs and Fantasy set RPGs in general. A voulge is a specific type of polearm that is supposed to be classified based on the shape of the blade. Though it is small (because of the size of the Avotoc), it fits the description of a double voulge.

      Here’s a more accurate RPG double voulge:


      1. Yes the form of the blade is important for it’s classification, but not that much, it wasn’t as uniform as you might think. Most medieval voulges were of mediocre quality and neither the blade nor the pole were that great like in what you seem to think is a voulge. It resembled much more a bardiche than a fantasy giant butchering knife attached to a long thin stick. I’ll also add that because of all that, the weight of a voulge is unbalanced, therefore not permitting any room to do acrobatic fighting…

        Look, those are voulges, see how the shapes are sometimes uneven and crude and sometimes sharp, cutting and deadly? It greatly varied, but none of the blades look like knives or lances (as what I mean by this doesn’t look impressive):

        But anyways, I’m not saying I dislike that, I’m only stating that it is wrong to call it a voulge.


      2. It might be better to classify it as a Glaive- which is something I’ve looked into but haven’t found much on double-ended glaives. I found more literature on the double voulges and they did fit in the classifications (the 3rd, 4th and 5th voulges in the link you used are all similar to this one). It’s still something I’ve been looking into, but it fits much more as a Double Voulge than it does a Bardiche.

        Also the double-end counterbalances the weight to enable acrobatic fighting.
