The Obsidian Order of Eternity wants YOU! part 6

Recommended Posts

Is it too late to join? I added $8 to my pledge a while ago but forgot to ask to join.

 

Just encase it isn't too late, I'd like to be the Lord Commissar, or Colonel-Commissar.

 

But if it's too late, I wont be sad. Seriously...

@drake heath: Don't be sad. It's not too late as long as you upped your pledge/donation by $8 (USD) more than your selected tier plus add-ons, before Sunday that is.

 

@Hertzilla: I take "glomp" to mean a tackling, bear hug.

 

As for how to pronounce the almighty Lord of Marshmallow(were)s, Kerfluffleupogus, I've been mentally saying it as ker-fluff-uhl-up-uh-gus.

Please welcome our new members:

  • TensaiOni, Winged Hussar of the Obsidian Order
  • drake heath, Lord Commissar of the Obsidian Order

I just wanted to pop in and said hello to everyone. I added $8 to my pledge (via PayPal) just now, so hopefully it can get verified before the cutoff and all.

It's an honour system. How may we call you? Please choose a unique title. :)

 

Hope I get accepted...Sunday is approaching really fast. :blink:

As Sugarjaye said:

[...] the deadline doesn't count for them who have registered their claim before but have been forgotten. :)

I've submitted an additional $8 through PayPal (I originally pledged $50 via Kickstarter) to join. Glad I noticed the deadline extension, I thought I had missed out when the Kickstarter closed.

 

So if that's sufficient for membership, I would like my title to be "Neuromancer of the Obsidian Order".

 

Also, my thanks to other OO members and everyone else who donated to Project Eternity. The wait will be a long one, but worth it.

Can I get everyones opinion, I took the shield template and did some tweaking, which one do you guys like more?

 

1. Has the border the same color as the PE logo, rusty color: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8184/8107228943_faa0611bd9.jpg

 

2. Has LC's original metallic style: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8330/8107238722_52f8834f12.jpg

 

3. For final total comparison, his original default: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8334/8107252344_7c8833f0c0.jpg

 

any thoughts are appreciated :)

You might want to try doing a color/hue blend rather than a soft light? At least that appears to be the method you used...it seems to wash out the detail a bit. Then again, that might not be as obvious at the smaller size that would be seen in the forum. Assuming you can keep the border detail of the original, I like the coloration/highlights of the second one best

I was actually kind of going for a washed out look on the shieldface/region in general, At the actual size it looks a bit wonky, but 50% and lower it really makes the area pop pretty nice i think..

Looks nice, good job! Only the bottom of the scroll looks a bit too soft, the lettering with the title is a little bit blurred. :)

Ah yes...agreed at the 50% reduction there. But as Crash just pointed out, you might want to do the reduction on just the background prior to adding the text, to avoid losing the edge definition. The slight loss of detail on the scroll I think is actually a positive, but losing the clarity of the text detracts from the overall quality

We still haven't discussed why the "u" after "Kerfluffle" and before "pogus" is pronounced [ʌ] and not [ju:] :p

Ohhhh...

 

Fluffle... is a bit... confused.

Yes... you're right.

 

Haha...

 

Sorry, since someone has called Lord Kerfluffleupogus imaginary, I'm not myself anymore.

 

Okay here for everybody: You pronounce Kerfluffleupogus [kəɹˌflʌfəˈlʌpəgəs]

I always thought that show never depicted nerds realistically, just mocking them instead. But a lot of people, mostly nerds, seem to like it.

Hi All -

 

Couldn't resist, so in addition to my original $250 pledge (how do we get our forum badges, BTW?) just added $8 more via Paypal.

 

Would most humbly request:

 

Sir Gareyth,

  • Knight of the Obsidian Order (Knight Errant if Knight already taken) OR

  • Paladin of the Obsidian Order

Regards, Martin
