We need logos, emblems, signs

Post by Le Grimacier on Sat 15 Dec 2012, 3:29 pm

All is in the title. We have to find a graphic style for the banners and others signs. Not all have to be done immediately because we have still things to discuss but it could give ideas for making models.

  • emblem for the Elsweyr Confederacy (using the one from TESO?)
  • banners for kingdoms: Senchal, Torval, Corinthe, etc...
  • signs for shop: alchemist, traders, inn, etc...
  • emblems for the non-imperial guilds (Ya'Tirrje's faction, Renrijra Krin, etc...) and displaying of the imperial guilds logos
  • religious illustrations for tombs, walls, shrines, tapestries, etc...

The emblem in TESO is probably as close as we can get.

maybe we can make the khajiit signs stand out. by just making the vertical script with a pictogram of some sort at the top. And have them set on the walls next to entrances. Kinda like the japanese do.

Hm...yes, that sounds like a good start. My idea was to have them on the building as well. Pictograms, vertical text, good ideas.

Speaking of text...

Very akaviri inspired, I liked it. Something like this?

You could also have signs above the door, like this:

Meshes just have to be adapted to fit the design of buildings.

And do they use daedric alphabet too? Azura is their "mother" after all... Maybe a twisted form adapted for claws?
Or we could use aldmeri alphabet. They are also linked with elves.
Or create a totally new alphabet. They have already their own language.

They would use Deadric, to a point, as there would be Deadra scurrying around Elsweyr. But for the actual Khajiit language, we'll have to create something entirely new. I'd like to get a start on that actually, I have some good ideas, claw engraving and that. Oh, and in Morrowind, everyone shouts "You N'wah!" Whenever you attack them, would Khajiit say something different? Or is it a cross tamriel expression? Just a small thing.

We should use their alphabet to at least a small extent. Daedric is the go-to because of Azura. Yet, this is Elsweyr.

You could use the daedric alphabet as base for the new. Letters could also be curved as intended to be drawn in the sand.
Or some sort of hieroglyphs because Khajiits aren't good with abstract things.

I think "N'wah" is something typically dunmer. We'll have to filter it so that it doesn't appear in Elsweyr. Making something new will be hard unless you know someone who can imitate the khajiit voice.

Oh, I think audio editing programs can get us as close as we need them to. I have a good recording device. I can try to imitate one for you. Laughing

But seriously, I may as well try. Default audio lines in Morrowind are a bit lacking.

If you can't imitate, you could make the voices for the new races. cat

Or find someone off youtube who is really good at imitating the original. I can tell you right now there's quite a few people who do a damn good imitation and who probably wouldn't mind doing some lines either.

This tibeten script would make a good base for khajiit.

Cool. I like how there are no right angles on any letters, it makes the look of claws even more complete.

Now for numbers...what type of system would be best?
A twist on the tally system or just replacements for the arabic numbers?

I found an interesting style. It looks like it could be written by a claw on the sand.

I wonder if we could use something like draconic where letters doesn't correspond with each letter of our alphabet. Ta'agra could have some special characters like "ii" or "sz".

I've got some time tonight and tomorrow to do a second run though.
