View Full Version : Rhune World Tree

This was done for Rhune Dawn of Twilight. It's the world tree that underpins the cosmology:


The genre is nordic stormpunk so a great tree with gear cog world gates fits pretty well. Each of the gear gates has a view into the world beyond, each a version of Midgard with an alternate fate. Here's a few of the gate logos larger:

32100 32101 32102 32103

For more on Rhune and for the rest of the logos you can read a blog post on it here (http://fantasticmaps.wordpress.com/2011/01/04/the-great-tree-yggdrasil-with-gears/) or the homepage of Rhune: Dawn of Twilight here (http://rhunedawnoftwilight.com/).

Top notch work as always, Torstan! I am impressed with how distinctive each 'window' is, given how relatively small the images are.

Yep, that was a real challenge. Each has to give some flavour of the different worlds.

Great execution of a cool idea!

Have to agree with all the comments already. That looks Awesome and sounds like it works really well with the setting. The icons are fantastic as well and each looks like it hints at what is behind it while at the same time sharing nothing. Great work.
