Wow, another one ! I can hardly keep up.
This ones great too. In fact I think its my fav so far. Don't know why exactly but its the rusty browns and interesting mustache / beard.
Its really great you doing these Kimmo. You have the skill and the technique totally sorted. I find doing these sorts of tokens really hard work - and your doing them in 3D too.

U U U ME ME ME PICK ME!!! I wanna help!!!
My first suggestion with Inhabitants is MAKE MAGIC SIMPLE. Try to keep it like Fable 2 Magic (And if you haven't gotten Fable 2 yet GET IT NOW!). Magic always gets way too complicated in collab projects. when it's one person they can easily keep control over it but with lots of people with lots of ideas it's vary far out of hand very fast.
I think we've pretty much decided to keep this project as system agnostic as possible, leaving rules for things like magic in the hands of whoever is playing in the world. We're just providing the flavor.

Yeah, you can never have enough undead, skeletons and lich's to get your party cowering in the alcoves. Great stuff as always.
Kate Fendale was born and raised in the City of Akron. Her early life was dominated by her mother's affairs with several members of faculty of Akron University. Her father was a teacher at the University up until he died of a heart failure when Kate was merely 6. Her mother somehow fell apart mentally and started a decade-long binge of drunkenness and sexual affairs which eventually took her to her early grave. The family was well-off financially, but since not a single coin was coming in anymore, the wealth started to melt gradually.
When Kate was 14, she and her mother were practically broke and her mother was seriously ill from impending liver failure. Kate was pretty much forced to deal with the situation, but her means were very limited. She had, however, years of practice on how to sneak around quietly and hide in the shadows due to her mother's abusiveness when she was drunk. Kate used her skills succesfully as a shop-lifter, but soon graduated into full-blown thievery. She was amazed at how easy it was to gain wealth this way and focused her efforts on the university faculty - simply out of spite and hatred for them. When Kate's mother died, she had enough money to pay for her funeral - in which she was the only attendee. She was only 16, but competent enough to make a splash in the criminal circles of Akron.
At the age of 24 Kate was already a hard-core member of the thieves' guild of Akron and was severely entangled with complex inter-guild rope-pulling and power politics. She decided it was time to let things cool down a bit. The next 5 years Kate travelled around Akron and made acquintances with other thieves in every city she travelled into. Finally she stayed in Raedis only two years ago and started working as a information gather specialist regarding trade routes. She has the capabilities to sneak into locked warehouses, sniff around a bit and report her findings to whoever pays her the most. Such skill sets as Kate has are highly sought after by other thieves but also by rivalling merchants who want to gain an edge against the other families.
Kate has little tolerance for complex plans and rather goes by her wits. This mindset is especially dangerous when it comes to thievery and burglary, but so far Kate has never been caught - although she has been suspected of such activities several times. Kate has mood swings, a temperament and a general loathing of intoxicants. She hates pubs, inns, taverns and public festivities with equal fervor since they all tend to send her to an emotional rollercoaster back into her childhood and right into middle of violent drunkenness.

More great work 12Rounds...
I love the expression on her face. Her eyeline suggests an adversary much bigger than herself and her mouth says, 'this is going to be a tough fight - how do I think my way past this one?' Great work!
Excellent work again, and many thanks for another fleshing out of the Akron region.
