Zith had two concepts from before this chapter: Chapter 43 one and Chapter 47 one.

But they weren't set to get new art of this chapter, iirc. Not in Kern's spreadsheet of this chapter's cameos, either.


Yup, as of today all the concepts are done and my post updates are complete. Unless someone asks for one belatedly. But if anyone has any further ones, done by another artist, then lemme know and I'll toss it in there.

These paid cameos in story are fascinating idea, kudos to the genius who invented it. I am surprised that Hollywood missed such easy way to make money. o_O

Imagine that HBO would auction to the highest bidder the right to appear as minor characters in Game of Thrones. They could multiply their profits overnight. 8P

You pay few millions $ and step to the world of Westeros as unnamed peasant, soldier, slave or whore, say few worlds and die a gruesome death. There are more than enough people with more money than common sense to make it work. *lol*

If I remember correctly, Kern stumbled onto this after realising the most popular perk for crowdfunding the printouts of Drowtales pages was the cameo option.

There are problems with people attempting to make cameos that don't fit the setting, but they add a lot more personality to the otherwise faceless mooks.

This discussion seems to have fallen out of use. Well for anyone caring here is my (very late) cameo for chapter 52:

Raai’chinno Han’dai Val'Illhar'dro
— short called: Chinno

Daughter and second child of Raai’chael Han’dai Val'Illhar'dro, born 1059 – 58 years old - younger twin (8 minutes) to Araa’toskr

• Name: Raai’chinno Han’dai Val'Illhar'dro
• Race: Dokkalfar
• Ancestry: Han’dai sub house of clan Val'Illhar'dro

• Profession: Military, squad leader
• Martial ability: dual swords carried on the back (scabbards in cross) with the grips showing up above each of her shoulders. The one on the left side an odashi style (long sword) the other one katana style. She is fully ambidextrous but with stronger right arm.
• Mana affinity: Spellsong
• Uniform: Traditional Illhar’dro uniform

• Civil costume: Will not be needed here? Needs to have more thought of this.
• Colors: Traditional Illhar’dro blue eyes. Dokkalfar brown skin. Hair is light (Sullisin) blue (after her Sullisin father).
• Hair style: Braids from each temple to the back to keep the hair above the ears. Behind the ears the braids go down on each side of the back head and meet each other in an arc below the hairline to continue in a single tail bound by leather (to preserve it from unintentional cutting when releasing or sheathing her swords) down to her lower back. the rest of the tail is free and ends at her butt.
• Size: Normal female dokkalfar height.

• Personality traits: Alpa female. Highly focused on her task and goals. Competitive - especially against her twin brother. He refers to her as his younger sister - she refers to him as an upstart. Loves here brother despite she is very competitive against him - they spare together whenever they can. She knows that she eventually will rise high above him, but is impatient about it. Both as a teammate or a leader she can put a lot of pressure on her peers and subordinates to act on top of their abilities. This can lead to clashes with those not as skilled as she expect them o be. But she prefers to put them on support issues rather than risk their lifes and the operation.
She wants to explore everything and is very interested in the old world and what remains of it. She expects that there is a lot to learn of the ancient times how they lived and what technique there was both regarding using mana and the high arts. There is a part of here that wanted to become a scholar instead of a soldier. But that time might come if the wars will end.
• Favorite saying: If drowtales dragons breathe fire then: If you can't stand the heat don't tickle the dragon. Otherwise: If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.

• Quirk 1: Twitching eyes when she observes incompetence or low competence.
• Quirk 2: Clean freak. It's very important for her to be clean - not in the way that she avoids getting into the "shit" during operations, but wants to get clean as fast as possible afterwards.
• Quirk 3: Grooms her hair when getting time for it (the cleanliness issue) every hair strand should be in the right place all the time.

• Character flaws: Not accepting incompetence she scolds people when possible not spoiling the operation. She can't take critics well since considers herself very competent - thereby not able to make mistakes. Although she is highly focused on her tasks, she can forget it if she finds some ancient artifact or other thing from previous eras. Finding an ancient book is more worth than any other artifact. The last might not be a character flaw, but could jeopardize a military operation.

• Inspirational pictures: ---
• Name of her Arshin war bird: Starria.

As her brother she was born and spent her first ten years in the Saosh colony. She followed her mother (the colony military commander) wherever she could. She looked up to her mother and wanted to be in the military as she was. Her brother and she went together to Orthorbbae to get a proper education fitting children of the noble class. Together with her brother she went back to Nuqrah'shareh she continued her studies and military training. The latter both in the military academy and in family by their best swordswomen. She gained on Aara'toskr in skills as he cared for the little sister born ten years after the twins.
As opposed to her brother she never got any feelings for the Sarghress way of rule. She stands fully in support of the traditional rule of females and the rule of queen Nega'fanea. When the Saosh colony was raided by what was believed Sarghress, she wanted to follow Roon'vos to Chel a few years back but was held back. Later on she was admitted to go there when there was a scheduled change of troops.

So this is the character I sponsored.

http://www.drowtales.com/wordpress/wp-c ... Neps-1.png

A Kyorl named Neps.

around Quain'tana's age. He is a sealer and has light affinity. belongs to the order of serenity. a light elf/drowusso mix born in chel. He turned grey early because centuries of travel to and on the surface kept him away from the underworld's large mana pools. he can't see in low light like other drow. a wife named nanna, children, and grand children. he is known for talking about his grand kids at inappropriate times. is a soft touch when dealing with children and low born. though when on the job as a soldier for kyorls he is as disciplined to almost a fault. which causes him great anguish when his desire to help innocents and low born conflict with his duty to fight demons and summoners. these days he tries to make up for his time away by being around the family as much as possible. he has hung up his shield, warhammer, and plate armor for wood worker's tools at the colony. Making furniture and toys.
