    Has anyone heard from Al recently? I hope this isn't the last we have seen from these characters and my boy Saber. :)

    Don't worry he is still around these parts. Seems Al is working on something big Paint Adventures related.

    I have followed reactions to the movie and read non spoiler reviews but this is the scariest reaction I have ever seen. Holy heck what even is this movie?

    From his profile. It also says further below that he plans to address the thread in a few days.
    Man, this has some serious meme potential!

    I presume by "TROS", you're refering to the surprise-released ORPA film, "The RESUSCITATION of SABER", the epic finale of the comic's BDSM erotic asphyxiation saga.

    Hello, folks. It's been a while. Almost four years, in fact, since this little thread kicked off its journey with us. At the time, the sequel trilogy had just started to unfold and endless possibilities where it might all go sparked many a discussion here on the Cantina. Now, the main episodic movies are behind us, and for better or worse, those possibilities have narrowed down to realities. It doesn't take a strong connection to the Force to surmise that I had my issues with how this trilogy closed out, and I could probably go in an inexhaustible diatribe on how the last chapter of the Skywalker Saga opened up several cans of worms that I find hard to reconcile, and the very thought of having to account for them now, writing the Old Republic Paint Adventures, is a migraine to behold.

    I won't do that, though. I find there is an empty delight and low glee in trying to ruin the joy of others. The movie just didn't work for me, and that's fine. The world moves on, and so too must Paint Adventures. Where might it all go? That's a question that used to have one answer a year ago, but now has two.

    Jun and Stan's adventure in the lower sectors will make up one half of Chapter 17 - in all likelihood, a less grandiose affair than Chapter 16. The other half will be dedicated to Missy and Saber's journey to Jedha. We might alternate between the two groups, but for the most part - that'll be our focus.

    I wanted to take the time, however, to unveil something that has occupied my thoughts - as well as my time - these past couple of months. It is naught but a proof-of-concept for now, and as such - it will in no way impede upon my work for Old Republic Paint Adventures beyond this initial pitch. I was curious to see if it could be done, and to paraphrase the delightful clickbait advertisement of the Internet era, the results may shock you. May I present:


    [​IMG]

    The fantasy cousin to Old Republic Paint Adventures, Amethar Paint Adventures is - in a way - my attempt at taking all the lessons that I've learned over the years, both from an artistic, as well as a storytelling standpoint - and applying them to a setting that's unique to the thematic pillars and tone that we've built for Old Republic Paint Adventures, as opposed to being an adaptation of the Star Wars universe. The world of Amethar is a setting that's unburdened by the legal limitations of the Galaxy Far Far Away, as well as freed from decades of refined expectations and conflicting interpretations.

    Why fantasy? I felt that it was an inspired genre to pivot into from Star Wars, even though I'm fully aware that it's not everyone's cup of tea. It has a bit of the classic tropes you'd find in fantasy, rearranged and repurposed in hopefully interesting ways, as well as new concepts to match. Those who know me, know me as a person who is relentlessly drawn to a diverse array of cultures that are different from my own - if at the very least for their cuisines. One of the things that I've attempted to do with Amethar is provide a fantasy voice that's not so West European at its core. From Maori, West African and Korean, to Aztec, Persian and Hungarian - drawing influences from cultures you'd normally not see in your standard fare for this genre has been a fun experience for me.

    Below is the completed map for the world of Amethar, with many parts of its world left deliberately wild and shrouded in mystery. It's an interpretation of the map from the eyes of Niveria, pieced together by its trade partners and their allies to varying degrees. If you're having a hard time finding Niveria - it is purposefully placed at the very center of the map, and speaking purely from a hypothetical standpoint - it would be where our adventure might begin.

    [​IMG]

    As the map is quite large, I recommend the curious ones among to you to open it in a different browser tab. 600 credits to the first person who spots Ilora, the hometown of our protagonist.

    Given that Amethar Paint Adventures is supposed to represent the natural progression of Old Republic Paint Adventures, I took the opportunity to update and improve upon the character templates themselves, providing a crisp new look all across the board while still very much possessing the style that we grew fond of.

    [​IMG]

    The plan will be to eventually move onto these new templates in Old Republic Paint Adventures, and as I keep creating updates, I'll try to port over the characters pixel-by-pixel in the background - hopefully completing the redesign by the time we get to Act III: The Silent Throne.

    [​IMG]

    This is Thaya an-Ilora, our main playable hero for this hypothetical adventure. Since Amethar uses a comprehensive naming system for its characters respective of the fictional cultures that I've developed, I hope that you will forgive me this momentary lapse of taking away player agency. The far more important aspects of Thaya - such as her character, mannerisms, strengths and flaws - still remain in the hands of the audience, ready to be developed. Given that Old Republic Paint Adventures started off with a male protagonist - it felt natural to me to lean towards the opposite this time around.

    There does exist a rhyme between the two main heroes, because the story would begin in much the same manner as it does in Old Republic Paint Adventures. With a stowaway on a ship leaving their home behind.

    One final thing before I close out this post would be to show you the different characters I've built using the new template - possibly the bulk of the work that's kept me occupied from continuing Chapter 17. There are a few Cantina cameos hidden among these. I hope that you like them at least as half as much as I did painting this new universe from scratch.

    Oh man, that looks epic! Before we move on from this and if it's not too much trouble, could you walk us through the character designs? There are so many ones I want to know more about like...

    This guy looks like if Bobby B and the Mando had a baby with lemon Legolas.
    I'm gonna guess that people from Ilu Ankasi use an-"place of birth/residence" as name formats? Like Geralt an-Rivia.

    OK...OK....what's all this then??!???

    So imagine a dude who left ORPA like 8 months ago and has suddenly come back.....

    If I read things correctly @Alamact my timing appears exquisite as we are starting a brand new adventure?
