Inserting Absentia

August 6, 2011:

Absentia, before we grew the grass.

Discussion in the forum led me to believe that the city “Oblivia” I wanted to have as an area in the game might be copyrighted by the owners of Pokemon. I told DreamCat (our lead artist and my life partner) and she pouted and wandered around wincing for a bit then burst into maniacal laughter, “I got it! Call the city “Absentia”. I want to tell people to come see me, I’ll be in Absentia!”

So Absentia it is.

I built a one room area called Absentia and pulled up the edges too high to try to climb your way out and gaze into the void.

I plopped a couple of the buildings from the library around and muttered to myself that they could only be place holders for the real buildings that we’ll add later.

I tried to mess with the billboard function and couldn’t get it to work. I thought it landed at a really weird angle and figured I needed to work on that a lot more.

So “Meet us in Absentia” might be a hit song in Aerendel, the game world.
