HELLO NEWGROUNDS! I would very much like to present to you a sneak peak of Psychadica!
Each episode will solely be focused on one kingdom, and so there will be 3 episodes animated at one time with 3 different plots. This particular episode takes place in the Psionics series.
This scene takes place after the signing of the Liberation Treaty of Ishitara and is the opening scene to the series!
There is concept art and concept melodies on my profile.
SCENE :: The sun creeps over the horizon on a vast landscape. As it's light turns from amber and red into a softer yellow across the dark purple and star lit sky, the stars begin to fade away, and a silouette of a city on the coast, Ishitara, is shown. The light slowly slips over the city and reveals its borders and castle. There is a reflection upon the water of the sight of a nebula fading.
SCENE :: The words "SIX MONTHS AGO" appear on the bottom of the screen for a moment and fade out. The Voice of KING LEOZEN THRALL speaks loud to a crowd of people gathered outside the walls of Ishitara, in the camps of liberated slaves.
This city was born in sunrise. The storm of blood and the thunderous rumble of the soldiers of war- they have been laid to rest. All of thier secrets died with them.
So did thier hatred. So did thier torment. So did thier grasp on our necks, and the weapons that once forced us to the ground. We were born a proud people.
We rose from the ground, with our heads held high, and with our hearts full of fury. But what fury does to man is consume them.
SO WE BECAME MORE THAN MAN! WE CONQUERED OUT FURY AND WE WON OUR HONOR! WE RISE ON THIS DAY WITH THE SUN! WE RISE, A NEW KINGDOM!
WE RISE, AND BRING FORTH THE PAST! WE SET IT TO IT'S KNEES AND WE CRUSH IT BENEATH OUR FEET! THE PAST IS JUST A STEPPING STONE! THE FUTURE IS NOT A SWORD TO OUR THROATS!! IT IS A SHINING LIGHT!
VIUS! VIUS! VIUS! VIUS! VIUS VIUS! VIUS! VIUS!
SCENE :: The scene shows the crowd from a distance, and is not neccessarily animated, but moves across thier heads. In the far back of the veiw is the house wall of Ishitara, so we are facing the northern end of the city. These houses are made of solid stone, tall, square, and very close together. The gaps between the walls can only fit a single person at a time, and there is one about every 50 feet to limit invasion forces to single lines. These are widely known as "Slaughter Gaps" or "Winding Death" to intimidate attackers.
SCENE :: The scene moves from the first angle across the crowd look over it from the side and moving in towards the wall where the king is standing on a heightened stage. At each end of the stage is an Ambassador- Aegis on the left and Harker on the right- standing in an at ease position. The king and few people in the crowd are animated. The King is pacing as he speaks and using his arms and hands to animate his words, throwing them around violently as he increases in intensity. The people in the crowd jumping with thier fists in the air.
SCENE :: As the king comes to the end of his speech, the scene shows his back facing his people from an angle pointing downward. He raises his hand, and a psionic spear forms from what appears to be vapors. The Spear is rudimentary, a black handle with a silver spiral around it's shaft moving up towards its crystalline spearhead.
SCENE :: As the spear is revealed, the crowd violently chants "VIUS!" over and over in rhythm. Vius means "Free Will" and "Coexistance". It is also the name of the Psionic capital.
