I drew this the other night. It's actually part of a longer story, but the story is a mess and this is probably more entertaining without context.

Eh, cool design. Seem like someone hadn't tought they would get in trouble today.

I mean, hairstyle aside, the heels must not be very convenient for running and fighting. ^^

About the ammoclip, I never saw that on real weapons. I'd guess it's only an artistic exageration of some "croissants"-shaped ammoclips.

Yeah, she definitely wasn't planning on a gunfight today.

As for the clip, I actually found it; There's a 100-round magazine for the AK-47 which forms a full half circle. It's unreliable and impractical, but it exists and it technically works. Picture here: www.militaryimages.net/photopo…

As far as I can tell there's no good reason to make such a long magazine; if you need that much ammo there are better ways to build it. I'll probably keep it just because I think it looks cool.

This is real ?!
Mein gött ... awesome. And of course it looks cool. I just didn't tought than someone would ... really build it.

So this thing exist. Oh well. Now I'll know.

Huh, is that some kind of mag? Curious design, I can work out what most of the elements are... I do wonder what the context for this one is now though. =P

Yeah, the big semi-circle is the magazine. The receiver is at the back, and the mag latches on at the front for stability. For some reason I thought I had seen this design on some kind of real-world prototype weapon, but I can't find it now. I think it's cool looking either way so I used it ^^;. (Also, ejector is absent because it's caseless. The bolt on the side is the only external part of the action.)

As for the context I'll try to share that as soon as I'm sure myself. I've got a pile of story concepts related to this, some of which contradict eachother. All I can say is that it's a part of the NN story and I'm writing it as a way to explore the setting from different angles.

Ohhh, so would she be likely to show up in the game in any capacity?

Yes she will probably appear in the game as an NPC who is part of the overall story line. Probably not as an ally to the player, but also not as an opponent in direct combat.

There's a lot of "probably" in my plans at the moment. I find it helps keep things moving if everything is subject to change.

Mm, well I look forward to discovering then.
