This took long enough.

The logo and loyalty symbols will stay the same besause I (still) have no ideas for them.

Until then, here's the House of Nobles Creature Template. I made two versions for your viewing pleasure.

Version 1

Version 2

Here's the .svg for this version.

I really hate just posting something in here that's just "Hey, I changed this number and it looks better now!". I mean, technically, that's all that changing the templates is, but doing it for a single number feels wrong.

Anyways, today's changed number is the luminosity of the center elements, which increased by 20.

This change can be seen here.

Sorry for posting you nearly month after the templates were proposed.
It looks really blue IMO, I think beyond the point of being a background, or "container" for some text and art. I'm thinking of old gray clouds an hour after sunset, more towards heavy gray, than vibrant blue. I'm prolly not that helpful, but else you may get snowdrop's "keep on working" :D

Ahahaha...

Funny story, I actually showed a gray version of the template to snowdrop and got no reply.

I did, however, keep it (even though I forgot about it until now), as well as a new version of it.

That's blue still. But looks way better.
Snowdrop is a kind of busy guy, what can we do with that, really?

For the blue, do you mean the edges/title?

If you don't, then it's an optical illusion cause by the edges/title. The center is quite litteraly pure gray at Saturation = 0.

Hmm... This is kinda a problem. Since I'm going to inevitably do the Empire's templates too, I had assigned Black/Gray for them.

When you consider the other factions, there aren't a lot of colours left.
  • Green/Brown - Gaia
  • Red/Brown (again) - Red Banner
  • Purple/Brown (3rd time's the charm) - Shadowguild
Why is there so much brown?

With the primaries I have left, I could only use Blue/Cyan (no real difference for this purpose), Magenta or White. Hell, even Magenta looks like a weaker Purple. If you're wondering about yellow, it's too similar to the brown in Gaia.

Thematicaly, Blue's my best option, what with Nobles = Blue Blood, and there are no other colours that go for the Empire. Unless I can figure out some kind of other reason/colour, this isn't changing.

I don't think anyone wants to see the Empire as White.

Empire should be whiteish or something other than black.

Garlicky/ecru combo are my thoughts regarding the Empire.
Browns, well, it's better to stay with at least semi-consistent backgrounds under the illustrations, than just go from red through yellow to purple.
Also, pastel/earth/dimmed colors are less distracting during the play and it all sits together nicely now (or at least it should).
