New art: Crages Merchant

Crages Merchant, dressed in all his finery

There is a new illustration on the Wiki of a Crages merchant. It has been great to get more visuals to help players think about what the people in Krayzen look like and spark their own imagination.

A cool part of all these pictures is that they also depict the subjects in the clothing styles and adornments  that would be typical of the person shown in the current age.  This merchant might appear to have a hunter-type look,  but that’s just because furs and bones are popular across all social levels in Crages society — even among those who never go hunting themselves.

Similar to the other template art, this was commissioned with Avongale Art:

Throughout history, there have been events where the proper flow of season upon season, or hour upon hour has been interfered with by mortals and spirits, and the effects have been catastrophic. Many historians believe that some of the darkest ages in history – periods into which divining magic can not pierce and into which whole civilizations were lost – were the results of such disorder.”
