Today’s Pen nib drawing. It came to me in a FLASH OF INSPIRATION.
So okay. You’re this guy who used to be a rough and tumble kind of knight. You’ve come close to breaking the rules of knighthood and you’re starting to become more and more aware of your own behavior the older you get. You are very good at righting wrongs, but sometimes the knight’s code of conduct gets in the way of things, letting some criminals escape through the loopholes in the code of conduct.
So one day your character goes to the king and tells him that he doesn’t want to be a knight anymore. He explains that he’s aware of the way he acts as a knight, what the code of conduct tells him to do, and he’s afraid of breaking the code and bringing shame to the crown.
The king is upset, but understand this knight’s position. As a reward for his years of servitude, the King gives the knight one wish, which he will grant provided it’s in his power to do so.
The ex-knight asks for the king’s trust and backing in solving wrongful deeds in the kingdom that knights themselves cannot solve due to the code of conduct in place. The king agrees, provided that the ex-knight reports directly to him whenever a case is solved and during the investigation so that a just judgement may be passed down from the King.
In effect you become the first medieval police inspector.
The game takes place after 5 years, at the start of a high-profile murder involving a duchess, a knight and a sorcerer.
The king has allocated modest funds for a crime lab, providing you with a barber surgeon, some rudimentary tools for crime detection and even a small shield declaring your position in the medieval society (basically it’s a police badge).
Feel free to use this premise if you want.
Today’s Pen nib drawing. Started from the eyes, and then it kinda evolved from there. Really happy with this one, actually :D
Nothing to important to day about this
