There are areas of coast that will have decent cliffs, mostly up the east coast of the island.

Nice drawings! Also looking at the armors that have maille reminded me of how maille is just a texture on characters:( not that it's terrible but it just isn't as awesome as if it was actually 3D with physics. Unfortunately I think it will still be about 10 years before maille isn't a texture anymore, and that's mostly because the "next gen" consoles will hold it back until they get replaced.

Thanks! Any critiques?

But I agree. I would love to draw maille as something other than a texture, but it's harder than it looks. You have to make it all look the same and it all has to be connected to look totally the same.

Not quite what I meant by wishing for 3D maille. I'd just like to have games with model maille instead of texture maille much like they have mostly model armor peices these days. As for critique well I'm not an artist:) I gave up on drawing when I realized I wasn't too good at it:(

Oh and devs how does the recent crytek website thing affect you? I have a crydev account so I'm sort of affected since I'll have to change my password. (I might consider using a pass phrase if it wasn't so long to type out. Logan from TekSyndicate talked about password vs pass phrase on a wan show.

At the moment the site issues are not causing us much of a problem. If it has happened in two months time, I imagine that it would cause us serious a serious problem. Its just an inconvenience right now.
