Personal Problems [Nano14] [Fantasy/Sci-fi] [RPG-ish???]

#1 Post by Mink » Sun Mar 02, 2014 7:13 pm

Story:
Here in The City, access in and out is strictly controlled. Landry's job (in one of the more looser senses of the word) is to sneak people in and out provided they pay enough. One day she's hired by a woman named Selene Ci to escort a young man named Marcel out of the City, for unknown reasons. Ci offers her usual rate, and more, enticing Landry to take the job.

She will come to regret this decision.

Characters:

Landry (Protagonist)
Image
  • Age: 30-something
  • A "city guide", Landry has the not-so-legal job of smuggling people out of the City, where access is strictly controlled. While she has amoral tendencies, she does at least have standards.
  • Has a CHARM device to try to avoid unnecessary fights.
Lily Landry
Image
  • Age: pre-teen
  • Landry's daughter, who has a REMOTE VIEWING device, and helps survey areas for Landry; this is also how they bond.
Marcel Quebodeaux
Image
  • Age: 20-something
  • The young man Landry's attempting to escort out the city. A snide jerk, he continuously antagonizes Landry, which may or may not backfire.
Selene Ci
Image
  • Age: 30-ish
  • Hired Landry to escort Marcel out of the city. Very mysterious, but proper and sophisticated, which Landry likes. A lot.
Other:

The Security Guards:
Image
  • Age: ???
  • Robotic (?) guards who keep people from entering areas of the city that are off-limit. Have come across Landry so much, they know her by name.

Haha I really like all the characters and the premise is interesting :]. I'm very curious to learn more about their relationships to each other.

It'll sure be an experience watching them interact, I'll tell you what.

Also, currently in-game you can actively use CHARM to try to avoid confrontations. This is the image you get upon using it:

Don't worry I have a guinea pig to test this stuff out for me this time.

Haha, that's a cute charm image.

I can just see Landry berating herself for taking a super suspiciously high paying job just because a good looking woman hired her. XD

It's one of those things that sounds like a good idea at the time, I'm sure >_>

Thanks!

On that note, I swear I'm working on art stuff. Proof: Ci's WIP sprite. Her design has changed a bit, but nothing major, I think.

Since updating keeps me motivated an update: the main post at the bottom now contains an update/progress section, and as you can read, 2/6 sprites are fully sketched.

The second one to be fully sketched is Lily, since she's just a headshot. Here's a preview that's accidentally insane but at the same time makes sense with her character.
Image

Just so there's a bit more to this, it works because of who/what Lily's dad is, which is
an out and out super villain and outstrips Landry (who's really more amoral/blunt) and Marcel on terms of assholery.
^That's eventually mentioned, but highlighting it and reading it won't spoil anything in terms of actual plot, but just sooner explains some of Landry's (and Lily's, at one point at least) reactions about some things.

Edit: Make that 3 fully sketched, so that makes it:
  • Landry
  • Lily
  • Ci

Update: Marcel has had some redesigning because of plot reasons. He also seems to have gotten hotter. Weird.
Image

I'm also enjoying giving him stupid expressions.
Image

Onward to the security guards and ???.

Edit:Security Guard is pretty much done.

I like Marcel's redesign. :3 He looks a lot more broody.

The security guard also looks good. They are robots, not cyborgs, right?

That's a good question that may or may not be answered in a secret ending. 8D

On that note, a character I finally have the design for and is like the one and only boss:

Thanks! I need to remember to comment in your thread. /fail

As an update, I'm working on Landry's sprite, which looks like this so far. She's had a few changes, but nothing major.

Landry's sprite is now finished! Also my coloring sucks. I'm sorry, I'm so sorry.

Also Lily's done
