Definitely a vote for Corsair from me!
Voted Corsair, but I would love to see one of the following sets even more:
- Underwater (Atlantis themed)
- Vikings (could potentially be linked with the Corsair stuff!)
- Western (cowboys, indians, cacti, tumbleweeds... the works!)
I voted for Castle, I think it would be great for fantasy/medieval games.
Frosty: Those are all on the big list of "someday", I just didn't want to do them next.
I'm going with corsair, just because it seems to be the most versatile for some of what I want to do with various games of mine in the future. LOVE your current pack, and am currently saving to buy it (yes, I know it's only $20, but I'm a pay check to pay check guy, that's half a tank of gas, or two days of food for my family!), and will put it to EXCELLENT good use!
Your artwork is beyond beautiful, by the way. Easily one of my favorite RPG Resource Makers!
I'm going with the flow on this one: Corsair! Will there be resources for a "dead man's chest" and bottles of rum?
"Fifteen men on the dead man's chest--
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the devil had done for the rest--
...Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
Not sure what that is supposed to look like. How about a dead man clutching a chest?
My thinking on what the ditty means is that it was a common practice (or myth) that when a pirate captain buried a secret treasure, he took a few loyal men and a bunch of grunts (let's say 15 in the case of this ditty) to actual dig and bury the treasure. Then, so that the treasure's hiding place remained secret, the pirate captain and his loyal men killed the grunts and buried them atop the treasure chest so that they would not try to steal it for themselves.
Just a theory, but believe it's correct ...
But yes, a dead man clutching a treasure chest would be very cool!
Considering I love the Golden Age of Piracy as an era for some reason (Probably 'cos of Monkey Island -_-) that was fun to read XD
Yes, the subject of pirates is always fun, that's why I hope "Corsairs" is the next Pixel Myth. I wanted to add to my earlier post that the yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum part of the ditty refers to the Captain and his loyal crew drinking and celebrating around their buried treasure (the fifteen men on a dead man's chest).
Here is the above in pirate-speak as rendered by the English-to-Pirate translator at: http://www.talklikeapirate.com/translator.html
The pirate speaks,"Arrr ... Aye, me matey, t' subject o' pirates be always fun, that's why I hope "Corsairs" be t' next Pixel Myth. I wanted t' add t' me earlier post that t' yo-ho-ho and a bottle o' rum part o' t' ditty refers t' t' Captain and his loyal crew drinkin' and celebratin' around their buried treasure (t' fifteen men on a went t' Davy Jones' locker man's chest)."
Note: I added "Arrr" and "me matey"
Well, Corsair has a pretty substantial lead right now, so it's looking really likely.
There is a western http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/a/graphics/wild-west-tiles-pack sort of, more of wild west though.
True enough.... and honestly that pack looks pretty decent. I guess I just want a lot of tiles in that vein!
Arrr! My vote goes for Corsair, I'm curious to see what you'll come up with.
I voted for Castle(although sigh, doesn't look like It's likely to win), castle options are very limited atm, and the region options are even more so, plus like you mentioned, such tiles are useful for things like churches as well.
It's easily the most versatile option there, and versatility is always a good thing.
Threw in my vote for castle. Just seems logical and the rest can come later (in my opinion).
Yea, we have a million options for towns, and dungeons(especially if you buy the other resource packs on this site), but the options for castle design are so limited, It's laughably bad.
