Kingdoms Concept by Kuejena Kingdoms Concept by Kuejena
No, not the Unicorn kingdom concept that I've told a few of my friends about nor the one based off of the seven deadly sins, but something I just came up with and is SERIOUSLY still a work in progress. Basically I have a lot of adoptables that I love dearly but have no idea what to do with until now! It's very vague and under a lot of construction, but I have a good feeling about it. 

To start off, I did a LOT of changing to their designs... well the first three anyway. 
Nami was adopted from hoovesandswords and looked like this --> sta.sh/0112wtl0fytd
 Yeeeeaaah, a lot of design alterations, what can I say? I would link you to the original adopt sheet but it seems to have been deleted? ANYWAY

He's the King of the Mer people, those who cannot be above water for very long if at all. I guess that's pretty obvious. He seems like a pretty chill guy, a stark contrast from the rest of his family line. 

Ariana was a character I bought from OrangeyPeels on this sheet --> fav.me/d64xa6j
Not so much design change. The colors are a bit altered, but she's mostly the same. I apologize for the nightmare that is her left arm weep. It just could not be fixed. It didn't want to be no matter how many attempts I made at fixing it. 

She's the Queen of Air and Phase dwellers. People with wings can live among the clouds or in the spirit realm, depending on what they are, and she rules over them. Since they don't need ground so much, they take the uninhabitable north and south poles.  That and the poles act as a portal for phasers to the other pole, convenient for the Queen especially. 

Ji is an adopt I've had for a while and have been wanting to turn into something for ages. I love him to death but had no clue what to do with him. Also from hoovesandswords and also not able to find the original sheet for --> sta.sh/01m22w7kdktq
A lot of design change. A whole lot like giving him goat legs, but to be fair, I've been messing with his design for a while. 

He's the King of the darker Kingdom. I'm still working on the actual make of the planet, but this side of the planet is always darker and the Khine dynasty has been in charge of it for longer than anyone can recall. Their skin colors are typically different from the usual hues, such as the lavender of the King. The family usually has a Queen as the head ruler, but they had no daughters this generation. 

Then, lastly, Blaxton. He's a rather new adopt I got from FoxiUzumaki from this sheet --> fav.me/d8z118k
Not much design change considering I haven't had him long enough to ponder every angle of his appearance. Besides, he's hella cute as is. 

He's a very new ruler to Dais. His family just usurped the other dynasty, but that's not so rare a thing to see in this Kingdom. This part of the planet is inviting at a glance, but is probably the least friendly. It's a tough Kingdom to run.

Fun fact: Braxton and Ji had a scandalous affair for a while. It's no longer a thing anymore. 

Now, the small strip of land between the two continents is for hybrids. The Qole and Dais kingdom are the only two whose races can actually procreate with each other. While they aren't exactly shunned (at least in the Qole kingdom they aren't), they tend to congregate in the Haziri Cross. It's a very localized government and is the most peaceful place in this world. 

Yeah this storyline still needs a lot of fleshing out, but rest assured, there will be plenty of conflict and corruption soon. Also, I'll be drawing out some citizens of these kingdoms soon, meaning even MORE adopts that will be turned into actual characters!  I'm going to go to bed now though. It's 6 in the morning why am I not asleep oh god...

... Okay I know I've heard of the Dais kingdom before. Where have I heard that before? When did you tell me about that? I'm seriously drawing a blank but I'm certain I've heard of that specific kingdom before.

Was this the kingdom with that little subplot between one cat alien person (who I think was Ji actually) and this overpowered king who could literally crush everything with his army and his own sheer power with the bat of an eye or was that a separate kingdom?

//will figure this out.

ANYWAYS I love these four! These are the rulers of the kingdoms yes? Ji is a cutie pie I must say, and Braxton seems like he has the potential to do dark stuff. I'd love to see what develops.

Likewise I'm excited to see Ariana and Jewel's relationship, as well as King Nami in general. XDD

Hue, no, though it's possible you may be confusing it for the White Kingdom on my Unicorn kingdom world thing. I know I did X'D

And nah, his name was Limm. Though don't worry, when I read that I was like "hO SHIT WAS IT?" I'm the best owner. That world doesn't have a name yet though. I'm excited for that one too however. I'll get working on all these eventually OTL But this one is going strong mostly because I can draw them pFFFF

People seem to like Ji <:u Good because his kingdom is my fave. i'm drawing that one next eue I'm still working on Braxton's kingdom. All I know so far is that they do a lot with mines and metals. It might be an interesting twist between clockwork and Victorian, sorta like steampunk but with more colors, as well as some Leonarda da Vinci concepts mixed in. They'll probably be the most advanced as far as science and inventions. Probably have canons and MAYBE pistols, I'll have to research. I do know that steel is still very expensive as the Bessemer process which makes steel mass-producible has yet to be discovered. Clockwork, however, is something that has definitely been accomplished. I did my research on this, it was fun. 

But Braxton is a questionable little shit. He's like THAT guy where you just can't tell if he's a good guy or a bad guy. He just keeps swinging between the two. 

Nami... I'm working on his kingdom. I'm trying to avoid mixing his in with the water Kingdom i have already in another world. I'm trying to figure out what their strong suit is. See, Spectrals have spirituality and magic, Dais has science and innovation, Qole has nature and stealth abilities, but I have NO idea what to do for Lapin. Time? Prophecy? Religious Dogma? Hmmm, I suppose they support the arts and do value shiny things. 

I do know that Nami is the first in his family line to be name ruler and have a laid-back personality. Most of his family have some serious anger issues. 

As for Jewel and Ariana... well eue Lez be honest here, they'll probs have a relationship at some point. Maybe. Idk, I just know Jewel's going to get a lot of shit. Fairies are basically the mages in Dragon Age. No one trusts them.

That's very possible and likely. Forgive me, I'm trying to follow. It appears kingdoms are a popular theme XDDD

OOH OKAY LIMM YES RIGHT well don't let me distract you from this cool world. That one I too would love to see developed but you're in the throws of this so I say roll with what you got bro.

Ji is a cutie butt, how could you resist him? I'm honestly not surprised that he's well liked.

Would they be renaissance steampunk then? Since that's actually the original basis I believe? For historical context on top of advances in science the renaissance was the period wherein vibrant colors were discovered- thus producing the eye catching paintings we see in museums today. Obviously your kingdom isn't earth based, but it's something to consider if you're thinking colorful yet clockworky.

And are they metallurgists? Do they forge and do blacksmithing or are they more collectors and miners and scientists?

Look up ancient pistols btw. Bird Kross has one because they're so beautiful. They're called hand cannons I believe and you have to light a fuse for them. Their accuracy is shit but obvs you can take some liberties for your realm because the outer design of the muskets are literally stunning. So stunning.

So Braxton is just a little shit period? What's his relationship with other realms?

Could Lapin be based on honor and fighting style? Maybe they're a war planet but not like gritty warriors, like fencers? Elegant? Idk if that fits your narrative tho.

Does Nami's family ever interfere with his rule?

Hehe "lez" be honest here? Of course you're going to have the token lezes. It's not a Kuejena narrative unless they're in there somewhere.

HOly shit, you replied large and fast ok. And yeah, I like kingdoms. Separating things by theme is fun, so I just call them kingdoms for the time being, or keep it that way, who knows. 

Hm true, but I'm looking for an extra twist. If I know me, I like to have an idea that's not very common. As much as I love steampunk, I need to have something else. Maybe it still has a modern edge? I'm not sure. It needs a twist. Even though they're kemonomimi/furry people <:y Whatever. I just need an extra thing. Whatever it is, Blaxton has to fit into it. 

They do a lot of working with metal, but it's more because that's the continent's main trade and strength. Metals. Though, maybe inventor would be a better word than scientist, since that's what they're more interested in. But no, it's not their entire thing. They're just the only kingdom that works with metal. They also discovered Aerite, a rare metal that can actually cut spirits. 

Ooooh, I did look it up. I like the idea that they're inaccurate actually, it makes a lot of sense. It keeps them from having too much power. 

His relationship with other realms. Good question. He trusts none of them, but does like the Qole Kingdom better than the others. He's still a brash and tactless brat to the other leaders though.

Well the problem I have with that is that it makes Lapin look good PFFFF. Elegance is more Dais, they be all pretty and stuff. 

And YES, Nami's family is ALWAYS trying to butt into his rule and he does not appreciate it. 

And of course! I need my daily dose of gay, especially the lesbianisms.

That's fair, a twist is always fun! Perhaps a modern twist would work I suppose, that would be nifty. And the people seem like their own races and species respectively because of their lore alone and I think that gives it a pretty memorable edge.

What are the other areas' trades then, if that one is metal? Are they all unique or do they each work into each other?

Oh really?? Nifty nifty.

Does he like the Qole kingdom because of childhood connections or is there more to it?

So do I eue I enjoy Ji, he's interesting, and so is his kingdom. I'm super excited to get to drawing that one. 
And thank you! I'm struggling with the females, but I'm getting the hang of it. Unfortunately I'm stuck with just drawing them in really stiff poses for now as I'm still getting the hang of this style, BUT I think this one is one I'll be running with. It's consistent. I lack in the face shapes department, but I'm getting there.

Pfff yeah this world's Rulers wear a lot of pink and purple lololol not sure how that happened. But yes, I like them too. I'm starting to get the hang of palettes, granted the color schemes weren't all mine to begin with. HOWEVER I did change enough things around to count as me experimenting with colors. Like Ji, wowie, I definitely revamped him. I'm gonna have fun with this. When have I not had fun with creating worlds tho I mean..?

Neko Emoji-16 (Blush) [V1]  Ahhh thank you~ I feel like it does too. I'm sorting some of my adoptables into kingdoms even now to see what belongs where. I do know every kingdom has a deadly aspect to it. Like, the Qole kingdom has a lot of assassins and Spectra has a lot of strong magic having a connection to the spirit world and all. 

I've well developed the Spectra kingdom at this point, so I might work on that. It's gonna be so awesome.

O U O Are you sure? Be careful saying that, I've even driven some of my close friends crazy with how much I have to say about my worlds and concepts. I have so many. 

Unless you're just talking about concepts for this particular storyline, that would be much more sane.

No, no, absolutely, all of them, all of them yes yes
I have well over 60 concepts (that was last count like a year ago, I've made more since then), and i can babble on incessantly about them to the point of driving even my closest friends to hate me
But that's besides the point. I really really really like hearing about other people's concepts absolutely yes please a thousand times yes

Pah who needs sanity passion is a thing and it has been so so so long since i've talked to anyone genuinely passionate about their series please please please talk to me about them yes please babble all you want I wanna hear all about them I love it when people are passionate I just :iconlazycryplz: i'm sorry i'm a little emotional it's been a very long time
