This is Catherine's official artwork for Exile. It's pretty. Now look at her buckle... "K- I"? ...What? Why? :scared:
Was this discussed before? Any ideas?

wouldn't it be the number "3" in D'ni rather then KI? And she had 3 kids. could be a connection there. I wouldn't know really.

Random speculation

1. It was because Exile was the third game, so the artist was thinking about that when they figured they had to put some decal there.
2. She wears different clothes each day of the week, and this is the third day. :)
3. The artisan who made that had a nickname as "KI" (third in the family, maybe, or maybe a similar sounding real name) that they used to sign their works.

That is EXACTLY what I thought when I saw this pic some months ago :scared: How odd... No idea what it was for, though :)

Somewhat on topic, but does anyone know if there are other character designs that go with this one?

For Exile, I only know of that one and Saavedro (and this one too) and Yeesha, of course.

There's one for Atrus as well, but I've never seen it online, only printed in b&w in the Prima strategy guide!

And yeah, pretty solid guessing by Gloa imo. I'm going with the first explanation for OOC and with the third for IC :scared: Thanks!

That would be great- where can I post large files without it being tough? Does anyone know a good programm where I won't be asked too much about copyrights?
BTW, Gloa, I had seen one of the Saavedros and Yeesha, but not the furry one XD Nice...

Eh, I use www.megaupload.com :scared: As for copyrights... those artworks were willingly put online and are meant to be shared, aren't they? It's not like you're claiming you made them... right?

Eh, silly, that's what it looks like. T3h banana looks bad even in b&w :scared: I'll take a good pic as soon as I get home, where my Exile guide is! (which means next week)


Edit: yummy concept art! Oh, that D'ni "17" shows up again in the Uru page... could it be a sign that the number really is linked to the Descent?
