🚗🎭🔪

thank you!! i have a few worlds, and most of them are very much like ours. and that'd be boring for these specific questions, so i'll muse about maia's craftworld for a bit.

🚗What transport is available?

It's the future and it's in space!! Most "ground" vehicles hover in some way. Maia prefers single-rider bikes. Proper space ships for fast, far travel are common too. Maia in particular makes use of one that stores one of the mentioned bikes so she can easily explore and travel no matter the planet.

🎭What do they do for entertainment, usually?

The Eldar population is smaller than it once was and much more spread out than it once was. I don't think proper sports or other entertainment is common. But I think wargames might be--tournaments for warriors between different craftworlds.

🔪What sorts of weapons are there?

Maia in particular uses a powerful sniper rifle with plasma for ammunition and a range suitable for her intense eyesight. There are lot of melee weapons out there, but few things beat a simple knife. I'm not a fan of something like lightsabers lol, and if it's not broke don't fix it. So melee weapons are relatively simple.

93 for all of your characters (gimme them epic lines) 

sweats

i do appreciate the ask. even more so i appreciate your confidence in me not to be a total let down in this category lmao. but i looked for a half hour for any interesting line in a RP or short story and i have nothing ;_;'' i'm a lame writer and my characters don't say anything cool 

 


rave asked:

id love to see maia sketches! 

Thank you;; I ain't huge on sharing my doodles, but she was fun to experiment with. Her final design is more or less like these :>

🖊+Maia

Well to give some context, Maia is my Warhammer 40k character for the Wrath & Glory game. She is essentially a space elf and ranger who explores and conquers in the name of her craftworld, Loreal. 

Since the aldari are aliens and not proper elves, I've took some liberty with her design. While she has elf-like ears and the tallness, grace, and long limbs to match, I've taken it all a step further and loosely based the species on bugs. I gave the aldari alien eyes to match--and she's albino so her bug-like eyes are pink and the rest of her is white and ghostlike. 

Space fantasy isn't really my thing, but I'm quite proud of the direction I went with her. Maybe if I ever feel confident enough, I'll share some sketches of her lol.

8 for your top three faves

8. If your OC had to take the S.A.T. tomorrow with one night to prep, how would they do?  both emotionally and academically.

- Favorite number one is Cori! She's always been a proper student and worker bee. And she's an adult with a family now, so if she suddenly had to take the SAT with such little notice, she'd be blindsided and nervous. With time to properly prepare, the SAT was a breeze for her, but now? She's not the type who does nothing, so she would spend the entire night preparing. 

- Klaus is next--he's nearly a millenium in age. He's older than the SAT, and I think he'd be a bit cocky. What could they possibly test him on that he doesn't know? So he won't worry about it. But then when he takes it, he'll realize he's not as versed in things like math as he probably should be, lmao. A blow to his ego. 

- Flynn! She's quite the opposite to Cori in prep and opposite to Klaus in results. She never properly graduated high school so the SAT wasn't something she ever studied for, but she's academically minded in her personal time. She's particularly interested in math and physics. And, despite being a burn out, she's surprisingly logically minded. So she wouldn't prep. She would show up, barely on time and a little nervous. But then she'd do fine--not excellent--but still better than I think Klaus and Cori.
