Marco and i agreed that it was going to be a matriarch society and that the warriors would do their best to keep important women from battle, even though Everyone trains for combat.

The whole matriarchal/patriarchal thing got really twisted once I got my hands on it.  Women make up about 85% of the population and virtually all of the shamans (psychics) but men have an honoured, revered, and leadership position within the society.

I always thought African tribes were a good source of names. There is a list of 7400 names here

When I was building my Infranite storyline, I named my War Leader after an adult male lion I saw on a National Geographic special

Well, asking the 'artist' to talk about his artwork.... floodgates open!
Marble statue, marble walls and marble stairs - kind of in style of the Roman Republic/Athenian Greece. 'Fido' is simply some sorta indigenous animal, nothing crazy, just a beast!
The statue is an Infranite, but highly stylized. The idea i had was that its an ancient culture and this 'leader' and honourguard are the newblood... hence the throne. It was not part of the original architecture except the base, the machine and empire pieces are 'trophies'.

The statue was the one thing that didn't quite fit the feel of the rest of the image to me - now that you describe it as roman/greek inspired, I would say that influence was maybe too strong? It always looked like a sculpture of a human to me, which was actually intriguing in its own right... but I love the overall look of the marble 'temple'.

I also like the concept of the 'Newblood' in front of the old, that overall concept shines through the piece, right down to the bullet holes across the stairs.  And the throne is bad-ass cool, hands down. :)

Clark: maybe I'm crazy but I followed the dialogue easily enough. Cool.

I'm going to add wildlife to my infranite army: Heresy Miniatures' "Hellhounds". I can't paste a link, sadly, but you can google 'em up easily enough.

That seems pretty cool, they look tough enough for the infranite home world.
I would be interested to see what kind of modifiers you give them though.

Yeah, they look much like the beastie in Dave McKays throne pic... coolness! I happened to notice there were 'Hellbeasts' in there that re the critters from Ghostbusters... also awesome. And somehow I picture those 'Hellmites' being on Infranite worlds too - feeding on rocks or something, lol!

I am sensing a thread here... first the Terminator/Nightmare image, then the Samoan/Fantasian, and now the Hellhound/Infranite doggie... Dave, you shameless rip-off artist!!!!! I held you up in such esteem, and now I am crushed!!!!  [LOL - Totally joking, of course!!!]

Very nice, guys! lol
I have seen many things since i started freelancing so many years ago... I roughly started in 1988/89. There have been many artists and companies that have either been inspired by, or totally ripped off another artist/company! I put out some art in the early '90s that showed up almost line for line in a comic book... the company i did the work for was pissed to say the least! I, however, was incredibly flattered.
I've been to quite a few conventions (like GenCon) where other artists have complimented my art and said that it had inspired them - and, just so i'm not tooting my own horn - i've overheard others say the same of both Tom and Wes as well.
Oddly enough, you don't hear of too many writers of games complaining that they got ripped off! (unless they're from GW!)

One gaming blogger was salivating at the idea of an open gaming system based on LOS, saying it would be just so "anti-GW".

  The Infranite language I used was actually a series of pictograms representing phonetic sounds, many of which had English correspondents.  It was called Omishkago(?) Cree.  I just subbed these characters in for the English, similar to Fantasian pseudo Cyrillic/Glageolithic.  Dave and Marco made up the # system, so far as I remember.

That's right, Tom! I still have most of the sketches still... it's nice to look over some of the thought processes and its also interesting to see some of the failed attempts or even the unused ones that are still good ideas!

I always thought the infranite language was more insectoid.
