Cantina / Re: Theme songs for your toons
« on: 03/09/19, 12:17:46 AM »
I've finally done it! I've found songs that fit the feel and tone of all my important RP characters, and even most of the ones who aren't important too. The Sith are all scary, the pubs are mostly sad and action-y, the rest are whatever. Have been shuffling some around a bit but I think what I have now is the best character-theme matchups I can get, I even did all my Guild Wars 2 characters too lol.


Imperial

Darth Malaji Vaal - Vampire Hunters (Bram Stoker's Dracula)
An ominous and foreboding track for the most depraved of alchemists. She never drinks... wine.

Darth Nefret - Ludwig, the Holy Blade (Bloodborne: The Old Hunters)
This is the right song for someone whose fighting style can be accurately described as a thunderstorm. It sounds like something you'd play whenever someone intrudes in your gothic mansion while it's raining and thundering outside, which is basically the story of her life.

Darth Hayal - Dance of the Cryptek (Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus)
The creepiest dubstep one can possibly find. Great for a cybernetics-obsessed darth!

Lord Zavy - The Four Horsemen (Battlefield 1: Apocalypse)
A soldier-turned-Sith gets some depressing, suspenseful ambience but in a way that almost sounds like a military march.

Lord Zamara - April 1945 (Fury)
She doesn't talk much, too busy systematically tormenting and oppressing rogue Sith or mischevious Jedi with extreme efficiency, fortunately this music says that without words.

Lord Arytis - The Old Blood (Wolfenstein: The Old Blood)
I knew this was the perfect theme for a Reclamation Service affiliated Sith as soon as I heard it in the game. It sounds like you're exploring an ancient haunted ruin, but evilly.

Phayri Vaal - The Mordrem (Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns)
She has her mother's sinister nature but a lot less dark side vampirism and much less training too.

Vacas - Necrons (Dawn of War)
A cybernetic chiss sith assassin apprenticed to a cybernetic pureblooded sith alchemist. The music is a good fit to describe how I never ever want to be anywhere near anything in that sentence.

Sadia Najat - Harbinger (Doom 2016)
She can stay calm for a minute or two on her master's orders. After that it's slicey lightsaber adrenaline time tho.

Alonni Lumiere - The Nightmare Court (Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns)
Too young and untrained to be a major threat, but she's the apprentice of Darth Tyria for good reason. Not an intense song, but a sinister one that builds up over time.

Adaliss Paran - Ravager (Terraria: Calamity Mod)
The hound of Darth Vaal, a fallen Jedi Knight, practically a slave but loyal until death. An intense track for a warrior with a very slight hint of sadness for her mental turmoil and fall from grace.

Zara Saitan - The Dark Eldar (Dawn of War)
The Mecrosa Order does not take prisoners, they take victims.

Moff Csa'lir'idi - Shatter the Empires (Hearts of Iron 4: Man the Guns)
I think this track has a very good sound for a naval officer, but with a bit of an oppressive or evil tone from the choir and such, so it fits nicely for my one high-ranking Imperial Military leader and R&D patron.

Captain Kiriona Aki - Corridor of Death 2 (Call of Duty 3)
An ISF commando gets the most sinister march, they're far beyond the half-hearted fodder of the Imperial Army in discipline and depravity.

Lieutenant Colonel Vasilla Alo - All the Fury
Corporal Akelsa Xeros - Adapt or Perish
Private Phaedra Vere - From Hell's Heart
All my 27th Airborne troopers have music from the same game, Crysis: Warhead, because it's the only one I could find with something fitting for all 3 lol. Vasilla, the frontline officer, deserves the most intense one because she's proven her abilities repeatedly under fire. Akelsa, the sniper, gets a fast-paced one because her job is to hunt and kill. The engineer, Phaedra, is more down to earth and usually blows things up before they can be threats, so she gets one with a slower pace but a strong beat.

Ziani Olosa - Agent Tex (Red vs Blue)
An agile dual-wielding rootin' tootin' mandalorian jetpack gunslinger in the service of a Sith gets some fast-paced western-esque guitar music.


Republic

Master Decilian Ansara - Glint's Legacy (Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns)
A Jedi who only barely held on through the last war, now starting to find herself again after getting a new padawan and some allies in the Republic Army.

Master Qelian Saida - London in Flames (Hearts of Iron 4: Together for Victory)
Another Jedi who's been through too much, slipping closer towards the dark side with every skirmish despite her desire to do what's right.

Padawan Asli Eliyara - The Fungal Planet (Civilization: Beyond Earth)
A young traditionalistic mirialan apprenticed to an old veteran, I think Beyond Earth has the best possible theme music for someone with so much to learn and explore.

Special Agent Serama Lirus - Covert Action (Fallout 4)
People working under the radar don't need action-y soundtracks, just a cheap apartment and some makeshift listening equipment.

Captain Lyara Idros - Iron Gods (Arma 3: Tanks)
Military music with a mildly sad tone for a widow fighting to ensure that nobody else suffers her loss.

Sergeant Zoe Adelia - The Storm (Battlefield: Bad Company 2)
One of my only pubs who isn't a nervous wreck, so she gets some energetic and upbeat military-esque orchestral music!

Dalia Al-Aziz - High Roller (Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire)
Filled the table! They're my credits now.


Guild Wars 2

Celeste Riviere - A Part of Their Story (Divinity Original Sin 2)
An aristocratic Ascalonian mesmer with a love for exploring, working alongside the Pact in recent times. This song has a nice adventurous feel and gets more intense over time, just like how she got more intense after deciding to help fight those mischevious little dragon things.

Samiyyah - A Brotherhood of Heroes (Call of Duty: WWII)
A Kournan elementalist of the Zaishen Order, devoted to mastering war and fire in the name of her god Balthazar. While wholeheartedly devoted to violence, she has a strong code of honour as well, something which I think the track catches well.

High Priestess Scyriss - Marauders Arrive (Solo: A Star Wars Story)
Epic choirs are required for ancient demons of forbidden knowledge, that's just how it works. Being fast-paced fits too since dervishes really like to whirl and nobody can keep track of anything a mesmer does.

Priestess Farayoun - Love Secret (by Mehmet F. Nalinci)
An Istani firebrand and priestess of Kormir with a troubled past, but she's come to peace with it for the most part.

Hierarch Zahra Vanak - Last Moments of Love (by Omar Faruk Tekbilek)
A disgraced spellbreaker previously in the service of King Joko's Mordant Crescent, now forced to forge her own path.

Slayer Vasai Zinghu - Stardust Crusaders (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders)
A spy's extremely queer globe-trotting adventure to defeat evil creatures through the use of magic and martial arts while gathering a group of unlikely allies for help along the way? Yes! This track has action for a not-so-subtle spy and also enough jazz to sound a bit underworld-y, it's definitely the best character theme I have lol.



Now if only I could get faceclaims and voice actors for everyone...

Happy valentines' day! I drew the Brimstone Elemental from Terraria's Calamity mod for my gf, going to write a cute fire-related message on it after using all our ink to print it on a card lol.

Raider Squad!


Raider Squad is an elite assault team in the Republic Army led by Captain Auri Suvas. Originally part of the 13th Airborne Regiment during the Great War, they were reorganized after the Treaty of Coruscant into a separate platoon-sized unit under Elin Garza's newly founded Special Forces Division. Their larger than usual size for a special forces team allows them to be in multiple locations at once on a battlefield while still remaining coordinated under one leader, with two BT-7 Thunderclaps to allow for separate insertions or airborne assaults.

I was inspired by Space Pirates and Zombies to try drawing some warships from the top down, since I really struggle at doing 3d vehicles without any references. :/ It worked okay this time, maybe eventually i'll try to invent some new SWTOR ships this way to fill out the factons' fleets lol.

The Swordwind


Stellar vessels in the Dominion are elegant works of art plated in glistening plasteel and gold, with thick adamantine beneath and powerful energy shields on top to provide maximum protection. The Mantle's naval doctrine emphasizes speed and firepower, as such they generally rely much more on energy shielding than solid armour to save weight.

The Resplendent-Class Battleship is a 507 meter wide leviathan, designed by the very best shipwrights to supplement the Mantle's century-old Majestic-Class Battlecruisers. Resplendents are built with a relatively uncommon wing-shaped design which allows them to focus all of their firepower forwards at one target, with the added bonus of providing more room for engines and allowing exceptional manoeuvrability.

Resplendents are armed with a vast array of firepower to pulverize even the largest of enemy line ships. 2 void prisms, 2 dual-mounted accelerator guns, 6 triple ion cannon batteries, 19 quad heavy beam cannon turrets, and a smattering of point-defense burst cannons make it one hell of a gunship, melting opposing capital ships in mere minutes if they get too close. It also contains two small rear-facing hangars and an assault transport docking bay beneath, primarily to allow its resident troops to land on the surface of a planet.

It has a massive crew of around 3200, with further capacity to carry a full Army Legion of 2000 troops and their equipment. Of its crew, 500 are marine infantry dedicated to defending against (and performing) boarding actions, 300 are ground and air crew who maintain the ship's small complement of strike craft, 600 are servants/slaves, and the remaining 1800 are rank and file enlisted personnel or officers who keep the ship running and shooting.

Cantina / Re: Make a (fashion) statement
« on: 02/04/19, 08:25:48 PM »
I have more outfits, with not as much effort put into them but they still look nice!


This is my newest Jedi, Master Decilian Ansara, an aging veteran of the first war and loremaster of the now-defunct (aka firebombed violently) Kamparas Academy council who's been trying to bring her fallen love back to the light side for decades. The two outfits with opposing colour schemes nicely symbolizes the duality between the selfless Jedi personality she presents to others and the secret forbidden desire to bring her love back on the inside, but really that was just coincidental and I made them because they look cool lol.



Another Jedi, this time a veteran Shadow. I see this outfit on a lot of Jedi NPCs in military contexts, specifically on some of the bosses/trash on the Boarding Mission flashpoint, and I thought the skintight design seemed fitting for a flexible sneaky shadow lol. The colour also matches her blindfold a bit which is nice.



This is Zoe, a relatively quiet and down to earth Republic Army SpecForce trooper who is basically a foil in every way to my more zealous Marine Raider trooper. She distrusts the SIS, cares more about morals than orders, and doesn't follow mirialan customs or spiritualism very strongly beyond tattoos, plus her red and black armour is the exact opposite of blue and white. The non-armour outfit is a nice off-duty attire I found which still feels military-ish but without explicitly saying so like a dress uniform would.



Some idiot listed Thana Vash's armour set for 9,000 credits on the GTN, so I bought it and unlocked it in collections and now it's my go-to dress for all apprentices in the Crimson Host lol. It is the cutest thing, especially combined with a cute Darth Tyria-approved new hairstyle and a red/white dye.



And last is my main Sith, who just got a new hairstyle after nearly 5 years! The left outfit is what i'm using as her main armour now, the V-shaped cape looks really cool. The right outfit is just something I came up with while trying to find a use for some old KOTFE-era gear I had, the gold looks very regal and sithy.

The Trading Floor / Re: Squiggly's WTB things
« on: 02/03/19, 09:47:14 PM »
Right now I am looking to buy some decoration bundles so I can redo Tatooine to my ever-increasing standards and also so I can add a bit more life to Rishi with personnel. Here's two wishlists loosely organized from most to least important.

Direct purchase decorations:
Sith Lord's Artifacts Bundle (an incredibly high 1800 coins o.o )
Force-User Personnel Bundle (1100 coins)
Republic Personnel Bundle (700 coins)
Imperial Personnel Bundle (700 coins)
All the other personnel bundles are desirable too since personnel are such a pain to get elsewhere, they're all 700 coins each.
Alliance Fighter (575 coins)
Dread Fortress Portal (575 coins)
Dreaded Obelisks (575 coins each, looking to buy them in multiples of 2 tho, I think they also drop from an earlier pack)

Non-direct sale decorations:
Sith Interrogation Rack
Bounty Holding Cell (looking for at least 2 but they're so rare that i'll take what I can get lol)
Any/all of the Nathema flashpoint drops
Bounty Board Holotable or Game Table (or both)
Rakata Security Monitor (looking for multiple)
Imperial Medic
Hunter's Planning Table
DNA Holoconstructor (it's actually caffeine not DNA)
Arrangement: Authenticator Stall
Solar Panel

As always, I have no idea what price to ask so that's very negotiable and I can pay with items or credits because I still have a little bit of old stuff that I can't sell on the GTN. Jori Daragon's set, the Agile Reconnaissance set, and the Stronghold Defender's blaster rifle are probably the mostest expensivest. And I can pay with RP, fashion advice, or internet hugs too lol.

Previous posts here have also been updated, if something is not striked through then I am still looking for it but pretty much everything important so far has been acquired which is good!

Plainclothes Agents


In the world of information gathering and covert military operations, there's no such thing as a fair fight. False flags, undercover operators, concealed gadgets, perfidy, black propaganda, bribes, and torture are all simply basic tools in the arsenal of Republic and Imperial intelligence services.

Mantle Town Dress and Exercise Wear and Prosthetic Arm


Cybernetic enhancements are considered to be a crime against nature in the Dominion, the use of which is punishable by death. External prosthetics are a different matter, however, as they do not defile the human form internally and may be used to easily restore warriors back to combat-ready status after losing a chunk of flesh too large to regrow. Modern artificial limbs are highly responsive and can move just like a normal arm or leg, generally being tailored to match the wearer's former limb in size and weight, with more advanced models even feeding sensory information back into the body. They are attached through the use of a strong vacuum pump or a miniature gravity generator in the socket, ensuring that they can support the user's weight during strenuous activities such as one-handed pull-ups without causing discomfort.

Darth Vaal


It takes great power to weave flesh and bone. Any alchemist worthy of their title can create crude bestial abominations, but it takes a true master of sorcery to enhance sentient beings into superior forms. Alchemical modification can be immensely painful and often leaves victims marked with horns, scars, or bony ridges as side effects, however the price is well worth it to become so much stronger.

edit: had to make the DS corruption more visible and therefore more cute lol

I think a consensus is necessary if there's going to be any sort of cohesive RP or conflict-based events in the future. I'd go with the "everyone survives" choice too, because that seems more likely to lead to full-on war and therefore gives more fun options for events on both sides.

The Calamity mod for Terraria has some nice music, which is surprising to me because I rarely hear mods with any music of their own lol. It doesn't all fit with the vanilla game's music imo but it's still great on its own, a few tracks sound pretty 90s-y but it reminds me of Tyrian so that's fine. My favourites are the Abyss themes.

Unholy Insurgency: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Q57JfIz2Mg



Next game: Deep Rock Galactic, which sounds retro af and I love it. Probably has something to do with the Alien-esque aesthetic they have going. Except instead of aliens it's different aliens, and instead of interstellar mining corporations it's different interstellar mining corporations... with dwarves.

Frostpunk is brutal. Thematically I think you could call it Lovecraftian, because despite its lack of monsters or magic it portrays humanity as an insignificant blip on the radar living at the mercy of nature. Its music sounds like it could kinda fit the time period it's set in too, which is around 1887 I think.

Uncertain Future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p98hyyVVVx0

Here's some other miscellaneous stuff too.

Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus - Children of the Omnissiah: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLsX9WUdYnU
This sounds like dubstep plainsong. I love it and the world needs more technohymns lol. Game is great too, probably the best Warhammer 40k game we've had since Dawn of War II.

Civilization VI: Gathering Storm - Hungary (Atomic): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8kCfI_KBTs
I have absolutely no knowledge of hungarian history before 1867 so I can't make any puns here lol, the music sure sounds nice tho.

SWTOR - Republic Fleet Ambiance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iujoGFCVDaE
In almost 5 years of playing I never actually noticed this song, I heard it a few weeks ago in-game and had to look it up because it's really pretty.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - The Storm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeocrOg4eXM
Anyone who thinks this isn't the best Battlefield theme is wrong.

Endless Space 2 - The We: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtiVeQHbiGg

A metal cover of the entire Bloodborne: The Old Hunters expansion soundtrack to go with that other metal cover of the vanilla game's soundtrack, except this one is even better: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6Pttcqbi3o

edit: it has been obtained!

I'd very much like to buy the Crimson Talon set, which is 2600 cartel coins on the market right now if anyone has that many coins they're willing to spend.

Would be willing to pay like 10 million for the set, but i'd rather just take the chest, leggings, and helmet if that makes it any cheaper. Don't need the gloves or boots or belt since I don't plan on unlocking it in collections, and those three sell for an insane amount on the GTN anyway so you'd still be able to get rich lol.

High Priestess Scyriss


"He was delayed by Margonites, you say? I'm sorry, but it is a proven fact that they are a myth! Nice try."

Though Abaddon is long dead, replaced by the new goddess of truth Kormir over 250 years ago, a small few of his ancient demonic followers live on scattered across the deserts of Elona and elsewhere in Tyria. Some have attempted to atone for their sins by sharing their knowledge with groups such as the Durmand Priory or Order of Whispers. Others continue to obsessively collect knowledge and artifacts as they did before, scheming to gain power or defile the legacy of those heroes who defeated their lord.

Arshia and Lyara


The Republic Navy may not have an entire branch dedicated to fielding elite troops like the army's Special Forces Division, but they do maintain quite a few of their own commandos for when basic marines won't cut it. From heavily armed Marine Raiders and jump troopers to more covert Force Reconnaissance teams and paramarines, there's no shortage of options to get a job done right.

Captain Lyara Idros, also known as the Hero of New Cov or just "that lady from the marine pinups", is a Mirialan from Dantooine serving in the Republic Navy's elite 251st Special Reconnaissance Regiment. Her second in command is Lieutenant Arshia Thali, a Corellian corpsman famed for earning first class Bloodstripes at just 17 years old during the Battle of Corellia.
