Dungeons and Dragons meets Star Wars.
About this creation












Okay, so you may be thinking to yourself - just WHAT does this have to do with "Past and Future Collide" (the category). Well, I'll tell you. Dungeons and Dragons is set a long time ago. Or at least in another place. Star Wars is set a long time ago as well.

First, a little background. Being the huge Star Wars fan that I am, I have read more than 30 Star Wars books as of late. One of them was Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. Mindor is a unique planet on which a special type of stone known as "Meltmassif" can be found. I imagine it to be grey - so the grey parts are Meltmassif. What's unique about this stone is that it's actually alive - it contains crystals and there are individual (or perhaps non-individual) beings made of Meltmassif that emerge. from it at times. The MOC was too cluttered to include these.

What happens in the book? Lord Cronal, a Dark Side Sorcerer who served Palpatine, summons Luke Skywalker to Mindor in a trap in which he would take over Luke's body and give the empire to Luke, becoming Emperor AND head of the Republic.
Long story short, it failed, but there was something special about Cronal: he had created Dark Side artifacts (a helmet) which would allow him to control Meltmassif. He used it to create armor for Stormtroopers, forcing them to fight, and to entomb people. He could cause the Meltmassif to extrude limbs and attack people.

After going through tons of options and running out of time, I realized that I had to do something. I realized that in Dungeons and Dragons, fighting something like Cronal wouldn't be that far-fetched. And since Star Wars is in a different time than Dungeons and Dragons - past meets future. I know, it's a little odd, but I was running out of time and sleep.

So here it is.
Now to describe the scene.

All the Dungeons and Dragons characters are high-level characters with magical weapons and armor - otherwise, they would have no chance against Cronal.

First, there's Cronal, up on his elevated Meltmassif throne (he did create a throne which he was more or less stuck in due to his old and feeble body).
The Warrior has jumped to attack him, but fell short. One of his swords is stuck in the giant Meltmassif hand.

I assume that making a large hand out of Meltmassif would require some effort from Chronal, so that's as far as I went with it.

The Wizard is using magic, as evidenced by the explosion coming from his staff. He summoned chains from thin air - the ball. I could not, try as I might, make the ball float using the Force, so I had to just lay it on the side.

The Blackguard (or Eldritch Knight/Hexblade - your pick) has a VERY special sword/staff, which has summoned shadows, coalescing into tendrils which are grabbing at the hand. A Meltmassif hand is trying to steal his sword.

Farther back is the knight, who is being entombed in Meltmassif. He is a guest NPC, not operated by a player.

There's also a helmet in which is a Yuan-Ti (a snake-being). Yuan-Ti is almost entirely entombed.

I'm sorry about the clutter, I was very rushed.

Detail 15/20; It's interesting and has some cool features, but it's hard to tell what some parts are supposed to be. It overall looks too busy.Creativity 9/10; I like the idea of the theme mash-up. Personal opinion 7/10; It seems rather busy, and there aren't many interesting techniques. Color Scheme 3.5/5; The colors weren't completely organized, and it has too much grey. I'd like to see some other colors, like tan or brown.Presentation 3/5; The photos were somewhat blurry, and the background wasn't great. I also wish you had not put the text in one big clump. Total: 37.5/50
