NOTES

Original art with colors for SoD: Trannis page 2.

Lineart for page 2.

The Citistate Assembly Palace, first seen in Short Story: Voice Of Experience, was designed by Iohannes.

Voice Of Experience takes place before Seeds of Deception: Trannis.

In the CitiState of Kaon, the Fortress Of Kolkular makes a brief cameo (see The War Within vol.1).

The "lava" river surrounding the Fortress (actually a flux of unstable matter) reaches a never-seen-before chasm, turing into a "waterfall".

More stunning art by Iohannes: The Lost Seasons: A Gordian Knot.


Read the entire Trannis chapter (so far).

Or browse the pages: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

There is far too little art of Cybertron - love this!

Thank you, we'll do more (of course...it's the Golden Age!)

Go for it, just let me know if you need any more info. I only listed them here as the edge of the Big Eastern Chasm up there is exactly how I imagined the sides of the Great Tyrovian Tract.

Loving the waterfall!! The way I see it, Cybertron would have lots of little 'Earth-like' geographical features.....deserts of eroded iron filings, stuff like that.

Yes, that is exactly what we aim to describe.
On such large a planet, matter is bound to exists in all the possible states and combination... it's unrealistic to think that there are only buildings and streets everywhere :)

The Sentinel chapter features some landscapes that have this same goal, while the Magnus chapter will end with 10 pages of battle above the Sea Of Rust.

I've got a few 'areas of interest' on my version of Cybertron...some of them are mentioned in my OCs bios, and hopefully I'll get round to doing some art for them one day.

'The Badlands' - An area to the north of Kaon made inhabitable by radioactive flux.

'The Cellax Plateau' - a megalith rising from the centre of the badlands, the only habitable area there.

'The Crystal Abyss' - Antipode of the pit. Surrounded by jagged, crystalised metal. Sucks in air from the surrounding area, causing the planet's weather conditions.

'The Great Tyrovian Tract' - a Grand Canyon like chasm that traverses the shale Plains. It is criss-crossed by pipes in places, and numerous 'plasma streams' empty into it.

'The Hyrax Spires- Hexagonal monoliths that rise from the surface to high above the planet's cloud layer. Basically those spikes they put on the Primus toy to make him seem more 'planety'.

'The Pit' - Antipode of the Crystal Abyss. A shaft that goes directly to the planet's core, sporadic vents of thermal plasma erupt from it.

'The Shale Plains- A vast desert of iron filings and rusty chunks of metal. Has a tendency to 'clog up' any Transformers not specially adapted to operate there, like Snarl.

These are great concepts! I take we are allowed to use them, just like your OC characters? :)

The "lava" river is quite stunning, especially with the waterfall-like drop. It's a really interesting take on Cybertronian geography.

Thank you: we have put lots of efforts in expanding/creating these facets of the planet, in order to have a more realistic and mature approach ("mature" meaning that children lack the experience/knowledge to handle it... not just sex and violence). :)
