Cavaliers & Carnivals [KN][fantasy/adventure]

#1 Post by Green Glasses Girl » Tue Oct 28, 2014 9:59 pm

Image
Genre: fantasy/adventure, friendship, drama
Image
On her deathbed, Grandma Adelaide reveals that she is a talented witch who has been extracting the emotions and dreams from her granddaughter Kay for the last 15 years. Grandma Adelaide gives Kay one last chance to retrieve those missing emotions—by entering a book composed entirely from Kay's lost reveries. Kay accepts and is flung into a world of her own creations...including one who wants nothing more than to see her dead.

Enter a world of festivals, masks, and mystery as a young girl finds that things don’t always appear as they seem…

Cavaliers & Carnivals (or C&C) is a kinetic novel broken into two acts.

ImageImage
[----------Main Characters]
Image
Kayla Bryant
Kay is literally trying to find herself: she slowly collects feelings throughout the story that are foreign to her. As a result, she unknowingly says and does things that appear ignorant or hurtful while struggling to understand what went wrong.

Image
The Azure Knight
Aloof in conversation and hot-blooded in battle, the Azure Knight has gained the admiration of the kingdom's citizens...and dislike from the Royal Guard.

Image
Sofie
A noblewoman and healer who hired the Azure Knight as her bodyguard. Sofie adopts a cheerful façade while hiding many deeply seeded issues.

Image
Nasira
The daughter of a blacksmith. There are moments where she wears her heart on her sleeve, but is coy once she gets to know someone better.

Image
Barnabas aka Barn
A level-headed mage and scholar. He can come off as somewhat of a grouch, but he is willing to go the distance if it means protecting the people he cares about.

Image
Raj
A traveling prince. Hedonistic to a fault, Raj is only interested in his own pursuits...particularly finding a suitable wife.

[----------Other Characters]

Image
The Doctor
A sorcerer who holds the role as the story's central antagonist...that is, when he isn't making snarky remarks over the actions of the main characters. He seems to know Kay on a personal level.

Image
Mysterious Gentleman
Just who is this masked man?

Image
Grandma Adelaide
The one who started it all.

Image Image
Sir Asher and Sir Garen
Co-Captains of the Guard. They have a friendly and respectful rivalry, but heaven help anyone who gets caught in between.

I know you said you're revamping all the sprites, but this looks and sounds great so far. Honestly, you had me at "carnival." I love the concept and overall aesthetic - just the right combination of dream, fairy tale, and maybe a touch of nightmare (perfect for Carnivale!). I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this. :D

Awww man, you've finally put it in the WIP (ideas) section! Awesome!

I'm really, really excited to see how this turns out, especially because of all of the work I've seen you put into this! Good luck with everything, yo. :DDD

Definitely not by the end of this year, that's for certain! :lol: Updates are going to be slow for November due to NaNoWriMo and the possibility of me moving. But I'll definitely keep posted on my progress!

This sounds very intriguing and looks expertly put together. It seems like your doing this mainly/entirely on your own which is very impressive.

Good luck on everything ^^.

^Thank you! Yup, one-man show here.

One of my friends asked me if there would be a demo? Isn't that kind of weird to have a demo for a kinetic novel? I feel as thought it's all or nothing since there aren't any choices...

(I'm having a demo for mine, and no choices yo!)

I don't really think it's weird. It's just like an excerpt from a novel. No choices there either, right? Also, you can still grab other people's attention + get good thoughts and critique from the demo of the overall VN. (I'd also totally okay a demo for this, even though it's KN, yo!)

Wanted to thank everyone here on LSF and Tumblr for the support! Updates are going to be slow because I got a job and am going to move soon.
So here we have Nasira in fancy clothes, particularly this outfit.

^Thank you! (Haha I'm scared now that I must never dropped this project!) The logo was all done in Adobe Photoshop (gradient + stroke + halftone pattern). I used some free fonts I found online. Don't worry, you wouldn't be the first who liked the Doctor the best! ;)
