Wizard Wednesday Recap, 2022-01-26
Wizard Honoraries Discussion
Elf and Dotta brought up the possibility of awarding honorary Warriors to celebrities such as Paris Hilton as a way to promote this upcoming collection and get more mainstream visibility for it. This sparked a lot of discussion among Cult members, both in the Spaces and on Discord.
Wizard TV Trailer Update
Elf talked through the development of an iconic scene in the trailer. Eventually, he decided that an epic line needed to be part of the scene, and the team brainstormed it. Eventually, Sharkchild was selected to record his voice saying this line. Sharkchild said that he had a blast recording the line. He hasn’t seen the rest of the trailer, but promised that the scene that he participated in will be epic.
Bearsnake and LachnessMonsta are developing a new line of merchandise. The idea is to create limited runs of a few hundred items each. This line will mainly feature apparel and a few other items, but the team is also looking at some unusual and unexpected “delightful mysteries” that may come to reality later on.
Other Magic Machine Updates
- Elf and Molly are working on familiar walkcycles – these should be available in another week or two.
- Souls on Ponies animations will be available soon. The art is finished, it just needs to be coded onto the Forgotten Runes website.
- Comic book production is ongoing. The team plans to include some relevant, themed advertisements in the back that will hopefully enhance the experience.
