The Palace of Tiamat

Oceania is one of the more civilized realms but very decadent.
The Palace of Tiamat is like a towering Los Vegas on the sea.
They offer anything you need for the right price. All types of vice are entertained here and always with a certain level of class.
Less reputable Elysians like to visit discretely.

The image was used as the album cover for my band The Year Zero. Mellow Lo-fi dream-pop. It's on itunes if you wanna check it out.

Ha! Thank you my friend, that is cool! I wanted to mention as well that the coloring on your recent works like Torean Dream and Not Of This World are really great!

Thanks! I love the idea of implants or electric clothing/tattoos.
Do you think it could even be genetic from birth in some cases. I guess the implants would have to grow as the warrior grows.

Maybe they could even develop in stages, metamorphosing into new, more complex forms as he or she gets older... I am reminded of the tribal tattoos of the south seas islands as I type this hmmmm....

Oh, yeah, or maybe new "tattoos" are a right of passage that you get at different stages of you life.

Good point.. need to send you a note for the next to keep from taking up all your comment space heh!

Yeah, I love the idea that people would use body paint to make themselves look more menacing, but in Rodinia the markings are actually dangerous.

The thought of a farmer hiding from a heavily marked cyborg would be cool.
Or the tavern goes silent when one walks in.
We should develop a specific warrior cast for Rodinia.:)

Use up all the comment space you want, your ideas are always interesting.:)

Nicely looking place, and very luxuriously. It looks to me like some crossover between Thousand and one night and sci-fi :)

The Elysians are pretty cool too, they live on the plateau, kinda the keepers of knowledge, an ancient defense system keeps them safe.[link]
