[Backer Weapon Concept] Instrument Skins

10 comments

So very early into the campaign I made the decision to back at the Blacksmith weapon tier. I'm not artist but I started writing down various ideas for what I'd want to see in the game. Once it was clarified that the weapons will be cosmetic only, I tried to shift away from "cool" weapon designs and think about things I'd want to see as interesting vanity skins.

 

One particular idea I had was to ask for a bow that looks like a Lyre, so that in an idle pose, my character would look like they're just holding an instrument. If bows include custom looking arrows, I figure it could shoot musical notes as well.

 

As I said I'm not an artist so I don't have any visuals to go along with this concept, but I wanted to put this out there for anyone else designing a weapon skin to consider. It's just vanity skins, so you can get a bit out of the box with what they are :)

Oh wow this is totally amazing! I'd love to see this in the game.

Do you want me to make a visual for this?

Please go ahead if you feel like it. The instrument I'm referring to looks like this, so my thoughts are either to turn it on its side and adjust the strings, or keep it oriented like this and just only use one side as the bow itself.

I doodled something in my spare time! http://i.imgur.com/emYdleK.png Is this close to what you were thinking of or no?

I can make it better, just didn't want to continue with something that wasn't what you had in mind!

 

By the way, I am so excited to see something like this in the game. I'd use it all the time!

I love this idea! One of my favourite manga characters plays a guquin (though it looks a bit more like a harp) and uses it as a weapon. I'd love to see it (or something like it) in-game! Weapons that don't usually look like weapons are my favourite.

yea, that doodle is more or less what I had in mind, the main point just being that when idle it looks like the character is holding something that isn't a weapon. An instrument in this case, but I also wanted to help inspire people if possible.

I really like this idea, in fact if I was able to buy the blacksmith backer I would have made a harp Bow. the feedback and backers on this are pretty awesome. Minty if you don't mind what was that from?

  • I hope they'd have some kind calendar events like the one from Rune Factory. Festivals and stuff. Imagine during Chinese new year in-game and they'd have lanterns around town and have some special minigames with prizes you can get only during that day. The NPCs would also dress differently. Fireworks on thanksgiving, some special event on your designated birthday. Random cutscenes anytime of the year. Plus, special dating cutscenes cutscenes during events. How about you? What events/festivals can you imagine in the game? EDIT: Halloween too!
  • Hello everybody, I have no idea what I should design as my weapon skin, so I decided to make a contest and give every designer who was not able to back on the weapon design tier the chance to still bring his concept into the game. Im still thinking about how the winner will be decided, but I will edit this post as soon as I know how to handle it. There are no requirements for the concept itself :) just draw what you think should be added to the final game :) Also there will be a deadline which will be on the 25th of July (which is actually my birthday)
