    Thank you!
    It took a while to get to the point but now we are ready to chronicle the battle for the Towers, and also their appearance in the age of Pretheria (a storyline which also explains all those Snake Women concepts, and the cameos of the First Ones).

    This act has everthing: the Fright Zone, the Slime Pit, time travel, the Crystal Falls -- and the appearance of THE THIRD TOWER OF ETHERIA!

    Some suggestions would be welcome!

    So far, I've only considered the ever-burning fire of the altar (which is not a likely feature in a toy for kids), the weapons in the rack, and the Serpent Gate that leads to the underground room (the playset should split open in two halves and reveal the underground chambers where Queen Corala sits on a throne and the other Snake Women live).
    Well the Fire in the middle can be handled by an LED
    You have a prison cage
    that could be a set of stairs in the snakes mouth that turn into a slide(like in Scooby doo)
    the gray archway could be a portal or magic mirror
    you have a weapons rack
    those 3 snake heads could spin and spray water
    and the tombstone in the front could have some spring off when punched or kicked
    on the second level the stair would point one way but shift to the slide in the other direction and hey you have a slime pool
    the stairs lead to a lab with beakers, a cauldron, and some torture stuff like a rack and iron maiden
    probably through in a stables on level 2 also for a Tyrantsaurus Rex
    Griffen Is not My real name, just what I aspire to be.

    I collect MOTU/POP, Transformers, Garfield the Cat, & 80's/90's Book & Tape/Record Sets. I collect VHS & DVD of 80's-00's properties. I get comic books, novels, & ViewMaster Reels as well. If you want to discuss this stuff & other things, then PM me here on the .org. I enjoy anime, video games, & sci-fi, too. DC or Marvel, it's all good.

    Act 16

    Act 17 of "The Coming of the Towers" is online.

    Meet the challenge of the final page's quiz: how many Horde vehicles can you name?

    The story so far: With She-ra and SwiftWind busy in a distant dimension, Etheria witnessed the arrival of the Fright Tower (from the future), and the birth of the Crystal Tower (from the planetary magic of the soil). As the Cosmic Enforcers Zodak and Strobo plotted to facilitate DarkHope's plans for the Two Towers, the Horde clashed with the Great Rebellion in order to gain control of both the powerful buildings.
    But the Towers disappeared during the apex of the battle, leaving both factions without their prize.
    While She-ra is facing a mystery within the Crystal Castle, the Two Towers reappear at the Crystal Falls, changing their landscape forever!

    And thank you too, as this sounds great.
    The idea that the Snake Women may have brought some beasts from Etheria is brilliant: it would be the proper counterpart to He-Ra's mount (a giant pink lion that looks definitely familiar).

    Wow, those pages really came out nice. Whoever you have coloring is doing an outstanding job. I hope to have an update to page 50 for you tomorrow before I go on vacation.

    This is damn fine work . I'm very happy we get to see something that shows off the other Masters of MOTU a bit more.

    Is there a way to view them all as a PDF? My PC can be painful at times if I am clicking in & out of individual pages.

    Thanks!
    Yes, our goal is to collect the pages in PDF files.
    The first file should feature pages 1-25, but it might take a while, as my internet connection is currently at its lowest, and the upload takes a lot of time ^^'

    Basalt Bastion

    The Basalt Bastion is the new fortress of the Rock People.

    When the peaceful people of Geolon came to Etheria, looking for a place to settle and live without conflict, She-Ra asked King Agho of the Trolls to offer the Rock People a safe shelter in the region of Spikeheart.
    A barren and harsh mountain range, hosting only weird and rare life forms based on crystals or stones, Spikeheart is as easy to defend as strategically irrelevant: the Horde never made a move to conquer it because the effort would be greater than any advantage obtained by controlling the region.

    When the Two Towers appeared on Etheria, they moved from one location to another, changing the landscape, creating new buildings imbued with features and powers.
    First they changed the Crystal Falls, by erecting the Cascade Tower. Then they moved to Spikeheart, where their power brought forth the geologically-themed Basalt Bastion.

    You tease! I hope we get to see more of this soon. Also will these be available in some form of print trade paperback or is the .org the only way to view these? Would like a copy for my book shelf.

    Unfortunately some color artists had to quit, but the lineart progressed reaching page 68!
    Then I got stuck for other reasons, but in the last few days I found new color artists that might just fill the remaining holes and allow the Pretheria pages to go online.

    I also promised to assemble a PDF with the first story arc, but I'm still too busy for that, my apologies!

    A printed version is fairly unlikely... unless we truly manage to go to the end of the saga in a reasonable timespan

    Thank you for both the support and the feedback, guys!

    The lineart has reached page 68, and pages 69-70-71 are in the making as I write (well, sketches and script).
