Nice tea pot. Have the Nauceans been trading with the Phallusians again?

... I REALLY wish you hadn't pointed that out...

I noticed that as well, but meh. Good artists shouldn't worry to much if their art accidentally looks like something else, it'll make you paranoid.

You never know, we might have utensils that look similar to naucean naughty parts. ;)

A Salad Spoon, for instant, is a round thing with a slit down the middle, a lot like a cloacal vent.

They were not ment to. It was supose to match the stule of the naucean horn in which it pops up rather than an open pipe.

There is not much i can do. I already had the stule and when aplied to things like thatnthey sometimes look wrong.I mean even their spherical houses and everything else will look like balls to some or boobs to others. Its just a sphere and was not made to be naughty at all. They use spheres becuase its is the shape of bubbles and falling water droplets.



Being on-topic... how did you make the pseudo-mouth and the tentacles? They look so neat.

I have mentioned it before but i got it from this website which had a similar design for their ballen squids.

Wow, interdependence between different sections of the economic world.

I just remembered something I've been meaning to ask since I read about it a long time ago.

How exactly does Naucean time travel work? I know you said something about multiple dimensions thus preventing the predestination and Grandfather paradoxes (Paradoxii?) But I want to know technical details of the actual process from step one with some random Naucean. (Originally I was going to give said random naucean a name, but it was just an amalgam of a character from a book that time travelled, and would hint at how I thought it worked, but I'm nice and won't pressure you to do it :) )

I kept it vague. But is somthing like you split off from your timeline. Anc CAN kill off your grandfather and so off becuase its not your orginal timeline. But sicne tis not used anymore it dosen't matter.

Also what else did you want to know exactly?

Thanks for the informative answer, but what I meant was how did you make them in that picture? The tail was from a dolphin, and how'd you get the rest?

You mean the one with the parts? Well i put a dolphin tail on an ostrich body. Then added whale flippers on the legs and a dolphi head on the ostrich. Then went over it all with the clone tool. Which clones the texture of the dolphin tail becuase it shares the same typeof skin. Then i modified stuff and added squid tenticles to the head and then addded mouse eyes for the eyes. After it all looked nice i gave it  a background similar to the marsh region of the river tribe.

Very cool! Reminds me of Risk or something(Any Lux players out there?) I liked the "real" Naucean as well.

Cool idea but how come none of the regions have any natural resources in common?

You should make a "Naucean: Total War" game, Hydro  ;)

Just so you know Hydro, it should be Mill Grist, not Mill Griss. Grist is a term of the for any grain seperated from its chaff, which is then ground into flour. A miller gets to keep a portion of this when it's done. Hence the term, grist for the mill.

I just made up the term "MILL GRASS" as a species of grain/grass. I did not realize that was a term.
