Title: Wasteland/Desert Armor and Weapons
Post by: Mordiggian on November 10, 2015, 07:18:48 PM
Hi friends!

I'm looking to accept submissions for some new items. Here's what I need:

Desert/wasteland gear! This stuff should be old, or patchwork stuff. Crappy, salvaged gear with stains and holes and tattered edges.

Materials and construction may vary (old tribal gear, stuff that survives the impact of a Bynner going off the Shield Wall, you name it) but let's try to avoid intricate designs.

I'm looking for primarily weapons and armor, but some clothes/accessories would be neat too!

Crafting recipes are not necessary since this stuff should be very thoroughly used and worn, rather than fresh off the assembly line. As with any building for the game, please review our building philosophy here! (http://gdb.armageddon.org/index.php/topic,15742.0.html)

I'm looking to handle this with a quick turn-around so I'm going to set the deadline ten days from now, on Friday, November 20th.

Please submit these as an UNCLANNED Character Report and put "ATTN MORDIGGIAN - DESERT GEAR PROJECT" as the title. Submitting multiple objects in one request is fine too.

The title says "armor/weapons" but your post says "gear". Do you want things like cloaks? What about flasks or other travel-type items? (Bearing in mind the crappy, salvaged nature, of course)

Edit: You answered that. Fail for reading comprehension.

As far as this project goes, cloaks/abas etc are what we presently have the most of.

Definitely looking for weapons and armor primarily, but I won't say no to other clothes/trinkets/accessories.

Everyone always forgets the belts. Time to write up some belts...

Climbing spikes! I'm sure they would survive!

How exciting! We do need some more stuff like this in the game.

I feel like fallout 4 is going to really help me come up with good ideas for salvaged gear.

Just remember there's no metal in Zalanthas.

Did you know that there's no low-cost hooded brown cloak I can get in Allanak or the naki starter shops which does not drag the ground/is meant for city use?

I am excited for these cloaks now.

So... the bottle caps are made out of obsidian?

Put your controllers down and submit me some items!

Still need more?  I'll get you some.

Don't worry, Diggity. I'll get you some. You just have to wait until this weekend. Then, let the fun begin.

(I still don't think Xalle has recovered from claycrafts)

I wrote two items!  Not gonna lie, Fallout was some inspiring.

I also looked at some Dark Sun material and realized we literally don't have the right weapon categories to represent a lot of the whacky tools of war those guys use.  :(

Yes! I've only seen one submission come in so far!

Do you need possible materials or just the design?

Sdesc and Mdesc are the most helpful. Submit more! We've gotten a couple at this point, but I want to be overwhelmed.

Research into bronze age and medieval weapons is probably a good idea before submitting an item, right? Make sure we have realistic handles and all that.

Do you need possible materials or just the design?

They said the items are well-used instead of freshly made so no recipes would be needed.

I submitted nine. I'm actually only really hopeful about the axe and club, since we need more of those.

Oh trust me... You're going to be overwhelmed.

So very overwhelmed.

Big thank you so far so Meish, Norcal, AdamBlue, Cindy, Brekke, and Zarelara!

This stuff is very helpful.

Everyone has submitted great stuff so far and I really can't thank you folks enough for helping out with this project but I gotta give a special shout out to Taven for submitting a staggering sixty-five items!!!

Post by: BadSkeelz on November 16, 2015, 03:15:53 AM
I have been staring at a single sdesc that I don't even like. Good job everyone else!

Any particular areas that are still needing love, Mordiggian?
Title: Re: Wasteland/Desert Armor and Weapons
Post by: Mordiggian on November 16, 2015, 03:24:09 AM
We've got a ton of armor and only a handful of weapons so far.

I could use more weapons!

Any particular type? Do you need shields as well?
Title: Re: Wasteland/Desert Armor and Weapons
Post by: Mordiggian on November 16, 2015, 12:00:36 PM
Shields would be neat, yep. For weapons, let's stick to the four primary weapon types (piercing, chopping, bludgeoning, slashing), as well as bows and arrows.

Remember that these are pretty poor-quality items that have been through some stuff and not really seen any upkeep or care!

So this might also work as an armoury for certain desert dwellers as well.. Yeah my focus was on survival gear, I was looking at it wrong.
Title: Re: Wasteland/Desert Armor and Weapons
Post by: The Silence of the Erdlus on November 17, 2015, 09:39:53 AM
I submitted a club and two axes, for a total of two clubs and three axes, because we so need more of those in the game.

Bad news, folks! The wagons delivering the new items to the playerbase seem to have gone missing en route - they last reported travelling through the southern tablelands...
