Hanging with the Folx
Swordsfall artist Enmanuel Martinez has finished another one of our special Backer art pieces. These are all Key Figures, a tier where backers could have their own personal character drawn and codified into Swordsfall. A lot of people sent me some great ideas and I realized that some of them would work better in a scene than just a floating character.
In Swordsfall famous and important people travel. That’s just something that happens. Location is key on Tikor and sometimes you just have to go to where the thing is. For this scene, I like to imagine there was some sort of event, maybe a summit or conference, and it’s drawn some interesting characters to it.
Who’s in the piece?
- Jikay the Falconer
- Sieg Thelis
- Majajiya Zardo
- Elek Brekrar
- Yara Jatau the Healer
- Darien Nok-Vada
*I’m waiting on permission from the backers before I publish their names with the characters.
The location they’re at is an interesting one too. They’re at the city of Forefront, a Vinyatian DOME that’s on the edge of the border with The Isle. It was once a military outpost back when it was about defending against the invisible threat of Garuda.
Now it serves as a sort of entry point for tourists and travelers. The walls of Forefront are thicker than other DOME’s and gives an added sense of safety that has gathered the most eclectic mix of people. And as for the bar they’re at. The Gut Buster?
Well, let’s just say it recently re-opened. I’ll let you read the quote in the lore for the inside joke ;)
