Post news RSS The Loftwoods: Concept Art + Narrative

Our first feature combining bits of visuals and narrative, depicting one of the many forests flourishing on the gigantic tree!

Posted by on


Another glimpse into Regal Arbor with this next Concept Art by Ethan Becker,
accompanied by a short poem from the team's writer, introducing Harald Hagen,
telling the tale of a trespasser in the woods.

The Loftwoods
.
Know the swollen forest whose heart once ran thick
with whispers
when through its root-woven grounds a girl did tread
unwelcome.
.
With leaves trading rumor as fact, the trees grew slick
with worry
of the axe the girl did bear, blade as wide as a head.
Severed
.
from reason in wooden minds, the trees awaited a pick
inevitable,
seeing only death unbidden, only to find fears unfed
by truth:
.
The lone girl was a woman grown, and none did she nick
to bite
with axe's jaw, but gave to each a gentle touch instead
with open hand.
.
Silence fell on the forest; fear had played on them a trick.
With laughter,
the trees ridiculed themselves for the source of their dread:
a girl alone.
.
It is not known to forests that She Who Walks With The Dead
is never alone.
