Okeanos börjar fått sitt utseende

Tomas Arfert och jag har rekryterat Dennis Gustafsson som illustratör till Okeanos. Hans insatser i Fantasy! övertygade oss om att han har rätt stil för antikgrekisk havsfantasy. I helgen gjorde han ett par testbilder och jag bifogar en av dem här, en persisk äventyrare ombord på skeppet Keraunos. De flesta äventyren ytspelar sig i tropiska miljöer, så spelarrollerna tvingas anpassa sig till hettans krav. Rustning bär man bara när det är absolut nödvändigt. Stilmässigt är Dennis insprerad av den gamle sf-serietecknare Alex Raymond, fast lite mer gritty. Jag gillar det.

  1. Now this is lovely!
    Dennis is really something, got a hand on that old school feeling. There’s no doubt why Arfert wanted him for Fantasy! Great stuff, really great.

  2. Hm, I wonder why I wrote in English. Well, never mind, I need all the practise I can get. =)
    Well, you wrote: “I helgen gjorde han ett par testbilder och jag bifogar en av dem här”. But there’s only one illustration attached to this post? I just wonder, since I’m pretty sure of that if there’s more to show, me and fellow roleplayers would be very interested.

  3. Excellent! This will be very exciting to play – illustrations are certainly one important aspect to any setting. I was recently pleasantly surprised with The One Ring’s art as well. Looking forward to the continuation on Okeanos.

    • I agree with you and want to spend quite some effort on good artwork. Shoddy illos wreck my pleasure of reading a game. In Sweden, Target Games established a strong quality tradition with Gulliksson’s artwork in the 1980s. We designers have to adhere to it to be credible among the gamers.
