_Chapter 1: Signs_
StoryQuest



A faint, warm wind carries the light scent of  green leaves and clear water through the early night sky. The silver moon shines bright and casts its light gently onto two cat-sized critters, coated in colourful fur.
Not much disturbs the overall silence but the far whistling of the wind , running slowly through the trees and grass like soft water untill one of the two critters opens his maw.

Odhran: ".. Have you .. ever wondered where we came from, Cináed?" The little guy covered in green still looks at the river instead of facing his friend.
Cináed: "Well, I don't know for you, but I hatched from a Matteregg like everyone else , you weirdo" The striped fella blinks confused.
Odhran: "That was not what I meant-" Instead of being able to talk he simply gets interrupted.
Cináed: "You know? Two get together, or three, or four, and -" Cinaéd starts to guesture with his paw-ish hands befor the green one cuts him off.
Odhran: "Cinaéd. Do you even listen to me? This is not about Mattereggs. "
Cináed: "...oh."
Odhran: "Did you ever wonder where the first Matteregg came from?" His eyelids lowered, Odhran glares up into the sky.
Cináed: "No I .. actually didn't I just ... maybe it was alwas there?" 
Odhran: "I think it must have been created somehow, by something that wasn't one of us."
Cináed: "But ... if it wasn't us, who could have ever created a Matteregg? You talk nonsense, Odhran." Squinting his eyes, Cináed now looks over to Odhran.
Odhran: "Our gods." The green one, too, faces his friend now.
Cináed: "...we have gods? Who are they?!" Cináed accentuates his confusion by tilting his head.
Odhran: "I .. am not quite sure. I can barely recall the last time I have heard of them. 
              If they exist they are nothing more but a faint whisper of the universes infinity. "
Cináed: "Wait are .... are you trying to lure me into some weird adventure-thing? Stuff like: ' Come on, Cináed, ol' lad- let's find our gods, will be fun I tell ya' ?"
Odhran: "I realized how bored you have been the past weeks, don't try to pretend that you are too lazy for adventures."
Cináed: "..... ya- this planet is quite boring, actually.. your plan sounds better than laying around here the whole day." A loud yawn ends the sentence.
Odhran: "I knew you'd say so! I get my stuff ready- you pack your things as well ." Already excited, Odhran wants to get up only to get interrupted by the tiger.
Cináed: "But if we search for some gods.. we might need some help, too."
Odhran: "Good point. We could use all the help we can get - maybe others are asking themselvs where we originated from, too."
Cináed: "Wicked! I know a few lads who could help us!"
Odhran: "I guess your odd friends are not enough company this time- we will need far more."
Cináed: "Oh, well, alright then - you go ahead- I am not the best with 'contacting others around the universe' "
Odhran: "You will never learn how to do it, will you?"
Cináed: "Didn't plan to- no. I know how to use wormholes for fast-travel, but it would take too long to 
             go to everyone around aaaaall the galaxies only to ask them if they wanna join - 
             I'd have to repeat the same question over and over again"
Odhran: "You don't have to do that. That's what Galaxy-Whisps are for, Cináed."
Cináed: "Oh I barely remember, wasn't it this weird communication system you told me about two weeks ago"
Odhran: "Two days ago, but yes- these multi-dimensional whisps can carry the meaning of a message with them 
              and jump in the wink of an eye from one galaxy to another. 
              They appear in different forms and shapes to whoever looks at them- pretty interesting little guys. I'll get them ready to jump."
Cináed: "So... do they talk?"
Odhran: "No. they just emit the meaning of our request, a feeling- the knowing of what is going on and what form our adventure is that we invite to."
Cináed: "... don't tell me you have to pay them"
Odhran: "No- it is free for me- they find me rather charming."
Finally the green one gets up from his spot , stretches and looks at Cináed one last time before leaving.
Odhran: "You better not start complaining that you forgot something here when we're on our way."



Task:
The whisp has arrived and spawns in front of, or close to your NebNom, emitting its knowledge instantly!
How does your NebNom take the news of the planned adventure?
Draw your NebNom with the whisp (keep in mind that the whisp may have any shape that is comfortable to look at for your NebNom)

You may:
  • Draw your NebNom with friends of them.
  • Draw your NebNom and the whisp in any surrounding as they can be at any location/planet/galaxy in this moment.
  • Draw your entry or enter with literature.
You May Not:
  • Make a NebNom for this quest without having a MYO ticket
  • use other peoples NebNoms without their permission in your picture unless they are listed as friends of your NebNom
At this point I would like to empathize that we would appreciate to mainly have drawings as the purpose 
of this arpg is also to try out drawing new things some of you might have never tried to draw before. 
This is not about the quality, but we would like to see all your effort you are able to put into your work.
Always remember: everybody gains a cookie!)

Requirements of the drawing or literature:

Yaaay first quest, I'm excited! And good golly, this is a GORGEOUS painting!

I have a question about the requirements when you have two Nebs. I'd like to draw both their whisps, but not in the same picture. More like a part one, part two thing with some text. Do I get a cookie (or more as applicable) for each image, and if I do both art AND writing do I get cookies for both? What if half the writing (like 750 words) is on part 1, and the other half is on part 2? Does it still count?

Sorry for all the questions. XD

screams this image is so nice I love the palette and composition used hngg *A* 

Also I have a question regarding multiplayer!
Does making a multiplayer entry mean collaborating with a second person or just using another persons NebNom in your entry?
And would it be possible to add a nebnom that hasn't got a character sheet yet? (i want to add my 3rd nebnom in but he hasn't got a ref yet) ;v;

RoscoeWolfie tagging you so you can see as well my not love

Thalliumfire Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2016  Student Digital Artist
Multiplayer is a collab, yes :D
It has higher requirements than single player, though!

And yes you may add characters that have no application sheet yet :]
That counts as singleplayer

Compliments on everything; the task idea is super sweet >v<

I already have quite a few ideas how to make this!
I hope it's alright to do all NebNoms in one image as I have quite a lot xD

Sure you may if they are all currently at the same location!
It would be cool if you draw a wisp for every new, as they all see them different, but it is not mandatory

Bellisaurus Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2016  Professional General Artist
Ahh, I mean like a cut kind of art piece, since they will NOT be at the same location.
I'll make sense when I've drawn it out xD hahah!

Me too, also I have two questions.
1. Can we do multiple entries (it'll tie together)
2. Also the last 'entry' will be a pic of them all together but in cut type fashion (where there's a line separating each image) would that be oka?
