What's this, we're back so soon? I did say we'd be doing regular updates, and that we were considering Tuesday, so why not start right away?
Today we're going to be showing off what will become the cover of Aether Adrift.
This is still a bit of a work in progress, but I'll walk you through it.
On the bottom, we have a shot of the floating islands, with Elisi - the big island in the center - taking up the most space because that's where the core book will focus on lore-wise.
Standing at the center of the island is a group of characters that represents the players - one from each playable race. from right to left: Mikwa, Robot, Human and Fulgori. They're giants on the island because the player characters are heroes, larger than life, able to do things others cannot.
Above them, seemingly in space, is Emperor/King Fulgor, lording over them with a giant hand reaching down as if to grasp the island. He's even larger than the heroes, so far above them in power that he's practically a god, but they look up at him with defiant expressions because they won't bow to him, even with the might that he possesses.
The final version will be cropped in closer on the sides so that it fits on the portrait-oriented book. Let us know what you think of this in the comments below, and let us know if you'd like to hear anything specific about the setting next week!
See you next Aether Tuesday!
