Suddenly, inspirations! Inspirations everywhere!
I think I found the perfect core concept for my new iteration of the Ancient Lands setting. And if you know me just a bit, it will be no surprise to you: “Star Wars as a Bronze Age Sword and Sorcery setting.” Specifically the two Knights of the Old Republic comic series.
And now I also know what to do with the naga in the setting that isn’t simply making them Yuan-ti. These guys:
I am not going to copy the whole Sith War storyline, but I think the old Sith are a perfect inspiration for the overall mindset and culture of the naga.
I’ve already been planning to do a group like the Mandalorians and the Qunari from Dragon Age for a long time. And two of the races are directly inspired by Jarael and Sylvar.
The Dathomir Nightsisters also have many great pictures I can use.
Of course, I am also taking liberally from Mass Effect (the second best thing after Star Wars), and the naga get a race of obedient servants inspired by the Geth.
And there will be both wood elves and dark elves as well.
This is coming along pretty nicely so far.
