An Old God

Recommended Posts

Hi all who are reading this. I am looking for someone to design an Old God, for a future Rp event. I have seen many talented artists on TNG, and look forward to design put forward.

Note: Feel free to discuss the art placed here, but do not discuss the mentioned rp event. You will be able to discuss that later when it comes.

2nd Note: All rights, etc belong to the artist. No one is allowed to do anything with the art without the artist's permission. If you are submitting art, you validate that you are okay for it to be used n the future event, but no where else unless you specify it.

*takes a breath* 3rd Note: This is part of the movement to get Twisting Nether up as a well known RP realm. If you would like to discuss the movement, please go here.

"Design an old god...?" Like, make one up out of thin air?

OOH, wait, this will be the perfect time to create my "Beast of 10 thousand noses" old god. I'm down

To be perfectly honest, a beast of ten thousand noses sound hilarious, and is certainly following the aspects of an old god xD. Maybe afterwards you should make the beast of ten thousand ears.

Qphlestegon, as written in the Olfactonomicon. The Beast of ten thousand noses, Lord of the stench, he who sniffs behind the veil, snorter of worlds. To inhale but a mote of his eldritch musk is to know the madness that reigns beyond the edge of reality itself.

*Alth* Whatever gods may come, I will crush them all!

Actually, I draw a mean Yogg'Saron. So I'll give this a try. Any certain features you want?

(Duro's your best bet, I'm just bored :3)

You could always just borrow one of the already-established Old Gods from the Lovecraft mythos. that is where the idea originated, after all.

Lovecraft encouraged it too. He used to relish the idea of allusions to great old ones appearing in other writer's works. It added to the authenticity of it all, as if there perhaps was something to the notion of eldritch beings beyond time and space, with traces of their dark worship to be found everywhere.

Also, as a cosmos, it wasn't about canon and lore. Everything was deliberately vague and mutable. The great old ones, might all be aspects of the same horrible being, or many different ones. Thats one of my favourite things about that mythos, it's basically lore-elitist-proof. Nothing is wrong or disallowed when drawing aside the veil of ignorance from the realms of unbound madness and unreality.

A happy time before sue-happy copyrighters. An artist who encouraged others to use and expand upon his work to create their own, what a concept!

I know, how impossible it must've been for the poor artists to make a living back then, without an army of lawyers to protect their 'IP'. Because ideas are totally unique and individually inspired, and not at all sourced from the collective consciousness- thats why you can exclusively own them!
