Chapter XVII (17)
A submarine forest:
(wow that title sounds ominous)
It is stated that the characters are standing on the edge of forest looking in. The forest consists of 'treelike' plants and underneath the canvas of leaves, the branches grew in 'strange' way. Maybe entangling themselves or growing in strange angles?
Answered in the next line:
All the plants on the floor nor the branches grew in normal ways. They all grew up. The plants and branches were rigid and faced straight up. When moved aside they quickly regain there previous position. It is described as 'the land of the vertical'. The soil of the forest was strewn with sharp rocks that were hard to miss. This either means that the rocks are large or numerous. The plants and trees do not require any roots as they require no nutrient's from the soil. They only require support. This makes me believe that the smaller plants are self dependent while the larger ones make be grouped closer together for support. The leafs are described more as 'blades' with colours limited pink, carmine, green, olive, fawn and brown. In the shadows of the larger trees are 'normal' bushes with real flowers, 'zebra like' fruit. There were also small 'fish flies' going in between the plants and fruit.
Hiding in the undergrowth is a 'sea spider'. The ground continued to slope downwards, which tell me the cast started at the highest point and going down. There is a narrow valley in the distance from the resting point of the party. Light is nearly non existent in this part of the forest as the sun cannot penetrate the sea.
At the end of the expedition they come across a giant wall of rocks.
So there you have it, but I do have a question. As this chapter is a journey am I right in assuming that I pick a point to do the concept art for? Or is it a collection of all the chapter?
