Re: Road to Crystals of Silveria II: Regular Production Update Thread

on July 19th 2016, 4:33 pm
Production is on a temporary hiatus as I recover from a cold (one of the many joys of the winter months Razz ), but I'd still like to post an update regardless. The pilots of Mask of Akanius, Flight of Indigo and Shell of Thal are all complete, and I am currently working out how to kick off each season. I may post two back-to-back episodes each scheduled day during the first week of "broadcasting", followed by one new episode each scheduled day after that. Just to remind everyone, new episodes of Mask of Akanius are broadcast on Mondays, Flight of Indigo on Wednesdays and Shell of Thal on Fridays.

By the way, here's the current production schedule:

Mask of Akanius
E03 Akanian Origin
E04 Akanian Tournament
S01 Zokugeminan Quest
E05 Aoinian Rebel
E06 Midonian Outcast

Flight of Indigo
E03 Talya
E04 Chuck
S01 Arch
E05 Stratis
E06 Katréne

Shell of Thal
E03 Lapis Seeing You
E04 I was Garnet Tell You
S01 Citrine of the Sands
E05 The Turquoise Pearl
E06 Truly Tourmaline

I'm currently working on remastering Akanian Knights, the pilot of Mask of Akanius, in order to bring it up-to-date with the current episode plan (not to mention recent updates to the official Dracromia-Metaligon Campaign Setting guidebook, also written by me). Here are some of the changes being made:

•The episode has been divided into two clearly-defined parts, with scene numbers in the second part updated to match
•Some place names have been altered to match the Draconic language's current form: Munthrek is now Hitorelm ("human lands"), Tundarus is now Yamanort ("tall mountain") and Wievalia is now Moriddia ("lush forest")
•The number of Drachomus Empires is now fifteen, with the addition of the chartreuse, aqua, azure and pink drachomi; the brown drachomi have been substituted for the crystal drachomi, who have their own land which is neutral to the conflict
•There are hints at the season's "antagonist" right from the second episode
•Finally, the titular Mask of Akanius has ten fragments rather than twelve, though it also has an eleventh piece that is...oops, spoilers! Wink

Well, the remastering of Crystals of Silveria has begun. It is the definitive experience of the first season, and includes cleaned-up dialogue and additional scenes, plus synopses for episodes that originally lacked them, such as E02 The Seventh Crystal, Part II and E04 The Shrouding Storm. Look forward to these episodes being added to a special "Chromaicora Adventures Boxed Set" thread, with links to every single episode and feature!

In anticipation of the unveiling of Mask of Akanius, Flight of Indigo and Shell of Thal, I've been considering a possible sneak peek of the next seasons of the show. What does this mean? Well, only that all three pilots will be uploaded early, well before the seasons' actual debuts! Isn't that exciting?

Also, I'm still busy getting the remaster of Crystals of Silveria finished, followed by an upload to WiiWareWave, complete with links in the new Chromaicora Adventures Boxed Set thread for easy access any time. Hopefully, that should tide everyone over until the newest batch of eps is unveiled, which I'm aiming to begin uploading in August. Stay tuned!

Most of the changes in Crystals of Silveria Remastered are relatively minor: a fixed bit of grammar here, a slightly-rephrased piece of dialogue there...but I'm also adding-in a number of subtle clues as to what might be in the upcoming Crystals of Silveria II. Can you find them all? Wink

Also, it has bugged me that the episode The Other Lackeys finishes without explaining how Emily, Brocc and Kendall reunited with the party, yet the whole team (minus Zed, for obvious reasons) is suddenly back together in the very next episode. This is something that I intend to address in the remastered version, so expect a little lovey-dovey in this bonus scene! I love you

To wrap up this update, I will be writing a second volume of Spoilerific Super-Shorts very soon, which will include more tidbits of future plots in the Chromaicora Adventures, as well as a brand-new Super-Short entitled Brockie See, Brockie Do. What is it about? Well, Brocc, obviously! Stay tuned!

In the lead-up to the official launch of Mask of Akanius, Flight of Indigo and Shell of Thal, I'm looking to upload at least one episode of Crystals Remastered every single day for two weeks. If you have yet to experience the first installment of the Chromaicora Adventures, or if you're looking to experience an updated version of the season you know and enjoy, now's the perfect time to do so. Look out for E01 & E02 The Seventh Crystal, Parts I and II soon!

Re: Road to Crystals of Silveria II: Regular Production Update Thread

In the lead-up to @BurstDashV8's visit later this month, I have been swamped with getting things ready. I've strived to work on some Chromaicora Adventures content every now and then, but I'm undoubtedly behind schedule and don't expect to start the next seasons when I wanted to do so. This means that the season débuts are unlikely to be uploaded until at least next month.

What I have managed to do, however, is finish a brand-new episode of Mask of Akanius, Akanian Origin, which details part of Alph's backstory. I have also completed five episodes of The First Pendulum, a sort-of prequel to Crystals of Silveria that serves as an origin story for Zed. If you haven't read it yet, please do so. You'll enjoy it*!

Speaking of Crystals, the remaster is proceeding nicely, with over half the season updated. I'm also considering a name change for multiple episodes, with each title starting with "The", since most episodes start with this prefix. Here are the titles that need revising:

E03 Bright Lights, Big Citadel (renamed "The Magical Academy")
E05 Call of the Wild and Trained (renamed "The Aquatic Horse")
E09 My Sister's Footsteps (renamed "The Elder Sibling")
E10 Memories of Ryokoro (renamed "The Shugenja Duel")
E11 I Dream of Jen (re-renamed "The Other Lackeys")
E12 The Sands of Awakening (renamed "The Axian Outpost")
E13 Of She-Orcs and Men (renamed "The Lonely Orcborn")
E14 Emily's Homecoming (renamed "The Royal Homecoming")
E16&17 Icon of Junihoshi, Parts I and II (renamed "The Icon of Junihoshi")

I hope you're looking forward to these remastered episodes!

*I can't guarantee that you'll definitely enjoy it, though, since everyone's tastes in fiction are different.

Hi all! GeekyGamerZack here with yet another (long-overdue) project update. I am looking at obtaining some new hardware in the middle of next month, meaning that I can once again resume episode production of Crystals Remastered and the next three seasons.

Because it's been a while since the previous update, I've decided to let you in on a few tidbits of information relating to Mask of Akanius, Flight of Indigo and Shell of Thal, which you can find in the spoiler tags below (there may be a few spoilers amongst them, so I'm using them as a courtesy to those who'd rather wait for the actual débuts). In this post, it's info on Mask of Akanius. Enjoy!
Mask of Akanius:
This season has more than a few ties to the previous one, and is set in a world in which mighty empires of a dragon-like people are locked in a perpetual cold war. The main character is Alph, a young man who has been charged with a quest to collect the fragments of a long-lost artefact for some unknown purpose. Joining him in his endeavour are Ocre, a red drachomus swordswoman and Alph's instructor in the art of swordfighting, Crynock, a cyan drachomus priest who is on a journey to experience new cultures and lands, Amy Mitchell, a human woman with pointed ears, psychic powers and a borderline-unhealthy romantic obsession with Alph, and Furbendink, a magenta-haired gnome sorcerer who is even goofier than Brocc Pharrschott. Early on in the series, we see hints of the series' antagonist, though its motives aren't clear until much later.

I have started to work out details for a new side-project I like to call Origins of the Crystalbound, a webseries that explores certain details relating to the Silverian Crystals, including how they ended up in the mysterious luminelven citadel from which Amethyst hails, as well as how they ended up with many of the original Crystalbound as seen in Crystals of Silveria. I'm looking to write twelve parts of this important piece of Crystals lore, so expect the first webisode very soon!

Re: Road to Crystals of Silveria II: Regular Production Update Thread

It's been a while since my previous update in this thread (upload announcements generally end up in the Boxed Set thread, whereas this one's for production announcements), so I thought I'd share some of what's been happening in regards to producing new content.

In a recent update to the Boxed Set, I've divided the seasons into various "sagas", which group together five seasons that each share a similarly-themed plot. The first one, the Pendulum Saga, starts with Crystals of Silveria Remastered, which sets the stage for the other seasons in the saga and details how the series in general progresses. Here's a rough timeline of when the events of each season in the saga take place (I tried to remove any spoilers, though I've provided a spoiler tag just in case):
Spoiler:
Crystals of Silveria Remastered (Season 1)
-Kicks off the series
-Takes place over a period of roughly three months
-Zed arrives in the small township roughly seven months prior to the pilot
-Tide of a New Beginning is set about 5-7 months after the season finale

Mask of Akanius (Season 2)
-Is set at roughly the same time as Flight of Indigo and Shell of Thal
-The pilot is set at about the same time as Tide of a New Beginning
-Akanian Origin is set roughly two months before the pilot
-The entire season takes place over a period of roughly 10 months (including Akanian Origin)

Flight of Indigo (Season 3)
-Is set at roughly the same time as Mask of Akanius and Shell of Thal
-The pilot is set roughly three months prior to Tide of a New Beginning
-Sky arrives in Cloudclamber at roughly the same time as the Crystals of Silveria Remastered finale
-The entire season, from pilot to finale, takes place over the course of an entire year

Shell of Thal (Season 4)
-Is set at roughly the same time as Mask of Akanius and Flight of Indigo
-The pilot is set at about the same time as Tide of a New Beginning
-Shelley finds herself aboard the Hat at roughly the same time as Akanian Origin
-The entire season takes place over a period of about 10 months (though it may vary slightly due to a scene that I'm not going to spoil just yet!)

Crystals of Silveria II (Season 5)
-Is set at roughly the same time as Shift into Neos and Journey across Frontier
-The pilot is set roughly seven months after Tide of a New Beginning
-The entire season takes place over a period of roughly 7-8 months
-The season causes a timeline overlap between the Pendulum Saga and the (second) Saga
I hope you enjoyed this update!
