The Art of DOOOM!

Post by MorbiusMonster on Sun Jan 16, 2011 5:21 am

Little do many people know, Doomsayer once took an art degree before finally deciding his profession was for protecting the weakest of RuneScape's foolhardy adventurers. Long has been the day since he painted or sketched a masterpiece, and his talents go wasted on warnings that go so easily unheeded by those brave or foolhardy enough to walk directly into danger.

Desperate to prevent his talents going rusty, but unable to pull away from his important job, Doomsayer would be more than happy to do a special kind of drawing for the bravest adventurers, the Bestiary of Doom! With his brilliant talents and the player's many escapades and near death experiences, Doomsayer can produce a scroll that depict the many monsters and villains that make life hard for the normal, civilised world. By asking him kindly, and giving a small fee, he can draw for you something very special that is unique to every player.

This little activity hasn't much in the way of rewards, other than a special Bestiary Scroll that players can show to others of all the monsters they've faced. To play this activity, all one has to do is talk to Doomsayer. When the player has come face to face with monsters or completed quests, he will draw his interpretations of the many monsters faced, each with their own chilling description (he is very very good at art!).

The more monsters you face, the more quests you complete, the larger the number of monsters in your own personal bestiary. And, as a little extra, defeat certain kinds of monsters a number of times and he'll even be able to work out the monster's strengths and flaws, as a warning to others who want to stare death in the face.

Herm...sounds cool, although I'd love to see it somehow linked to bringing player art into the game.

Hmm... That gives me an idea. What if the bestiary pictures are inspired by player drawn pieces? Since Doomsayer has a degree in art, he most likely can draw in a variety of styles, which would explain why each drawing may have a different style applied to it.

What would one do with these pictures. I mean they're no use if they fill up my already filled bank without use, then what's worth it? Tongue

Well...I'm assuming we're not being idiots and that you know, maybe...they're all in one item...

A bag?

Can we not show off these masterpieces in our PoH? I think that might make more sense. Wink

The paper from which the scroll is made is derived from the wood pulp of a magic tree. Therefore, it can carry an almost infinite amount of illustrations, weighing less than 1kg. It only takes up one space, each player has a unique one, but it's like a portable monster guide; you meet a monster, you tell Doomsayer, he draws it and you can refer to it whenever you need to find information up on a certain kind of monster, whether it is their location or their strategic weaknesses.

Sounds good, including the POH suggestion. People could put them there once they're finished with the thing and would drop it for bankspace otherwise.

The scroll could be placed on display in the Study in a cabinet. Players can observe it from there.
