Not sure whether this is right here ... or a game ... it might even turn into fanart.

Some time ago G0lden and me had a bit of fun in the chat box. Very Happy
Quote :
G0lden : You know what would be cool? A chess set with the pieces being different elves.
G0lden : Or trolls.
Embala : a mixed group. Two mixed groups.
Embala : though - why not several sets. And a troll group.
G0lden : Yes. It would be rather different.
Embala : Who could be who?

King & Queen: Cutter and Leetah
Bishops: Skywise and Moonshade
Knights: Strongbow and Nightfall
Rooks: Treestump and Redlance
Pawns: One-Eye, Clearbrook, Scouter, Dewshine, Rainsong with Wing, Woodlock with Newstar, Pike ... and Dart. Little Dart is a bit lonesome.

This was our first EQ Chess Team! Very Happy We made more ...


... but first I'll ask YOU to share YOUR chess team. Anyone go for it?

Of course this chess team was an easy and obvious choice - the original Wolfrider tribe plus the new chief's mate. It still was interesting to figure out the main roles - it cuased some discussions and a few wrong tracks and turns.

Part of the fun for me was the visualization. How would those chess pieces look like?

I envision Cutter on Nighrunner. The prancing wolf ... Cutter holding New Moon over his head ... there are drawings like this. And Leetah ... dancing! Why not a dancing queen. ^^
Skywise smirking and presenting the Loadstone. And Moonshade in a serious discussion or even scolding. ^^
Strongbow and Nightfall ... witrh their bows, aiming to protect. What else.
Treestump leaning on an actual tree stump ... maybe his axe buried in the wood. And Redlance kneeling - making a tree seed grow.

Not al the pawns were fleshed out like this. I have no special pictures fpr One-eye and Clearbrook in mind. Scouter and Dewshine on the other hand ... you remember the scene in the cave at Sorrow's End when Recognition was compared to sand fleas up the nose? Rainsong nursing baby Wing of course Smile and Woodlock holding Newstar to complete the family. Pike - handling his spear and Dart with his arrow whip.

cute idea! I would come up with a chess set, but my brain is kind of tired at the moment. I'd love to make a troll one. It took me over thirty seconds to replace the word dwarf with the proper word troll, so yeah I'll do that later.

Don't forget you can mix and match your chess sets. Such as the Elves and Trolls that participated in the Shard Wars and the humans they fought against.

Helloooo Evie :wave: I hope you will find time to paticipate! Very Happy

As G0lden has pointed out: YOUR chess team can hold everyone you want. Pure tribe, mixed groups for a certain purpose (canon or made up by you), representing skills (i.e. magic users), representing a certain time / story line or whatever else you come up with. Your (least) favorite 16 maybe? Or - the favorites as the prominent ones and the least favorite for common pawns? ^^

This and the look of many real chess figures gave me another idea:

King & Queen: Bearclaw and Joyleaf
Bishops: Longbranch and Brownberry
Knights: Crescent and Foxfur
Rooks: Fathertree and Madcoil
Pawns: Blackfell a set of eight wolves Hungry Wolf
