Heroes of the Lands by DameOdessa
"Welcome to the Shredded Lands, wanderer. If you are here, I guess you already know me. I am the First Born of this dying world, Ruler of Chaos, Bringer of Hope and Dark Light of Freedom... I am the Great Duchess of Asuras, Lady Odessa Shadowclaw. Now, don't be afraid... Come closer, let me tell you a story... The story of the Shredded Lands..."

So... I've never imagined that I could open my own group! :D What are the Shredded Lands ? Actually it is a group of different fantasy stories I created and decided to unite in one big world. The different countries had to pass through terrible events... and this is how I found this name. Yesterday... Shredded Lands... It is something important for me. The whole story is slowly being created. I still need to work a lot on it. And I will! Your support, comments are really appreciated, you helped me a lot in your depictions of my characters, your ideas.

The Shredded Lands have been created in order to be expansed again and again. Everyday a new continent can be created. This world is also...
...Yours.
:blackrose:

EDIT: The folders are not the final ones, I will probably organize the group gradually. And for now, I think I do not need contributors or admins, not because I'm selfish :giggle: but because I think I can administrate the group alone and I don't want to bother other people with this :) The stories will probably be in French, it's easier for me to write in my mother language but I will try to do my best to offer you a translation :heart:


:iconstardivider1plz::iconstardivider2plz:Welcome, I was waiting for you by DameOdessa:iconstardivider2plz::iconstardivider3plz:


"Bienvenue sur les Terres Lacérées, voyageur. Si vous êtes ici, je suppose que vous me connaissez déjà. Je suis la Première Née de ce monde en déclin, Haute Prêtresse du Chaos, Porteuse d'Espoir et Lumière Obscure de la Liberté... Je suis la Grande Duchesse Asura, Dame Odessa Ombregriffe. Maintenant, ne soyez pas effrayé. Approchez, laissez-moi vous conter une histoire... L'histoire des Terres Lacérées..."

Bon... Je n'aurais jamais imaginé que j'allais ouvrir mon propre groupe! :D Alors que sont les Terres Lacérées ? Elles sont nées de la réunion de divers mondes fantasy que j'ai créés et que je voulais faire cohabiter. Ces mondes ont connu de terribles événements qui ont donné son nom à l'univers global: Les Terres Lacérées. Un nom que je n'ai trouvé qu'hier. C'est quelque chose d'important pour moi. Cet univers commence à prendre forme, son nom commence à guider son histoire, son orientation. Je dois encore y travailler beaucoup. Et il y a énormément de choses déjà mises sur pages que vous n'avez pas encore découvertes. Votre soutien, vos commentaires m'ont profondément aidée. La manière dont vous avez vu et compris mes personnages aussi.

Les Terres Lacérées ont pour vocation d'être sans cesse ré-imaginées, agrandies, développées. Chaque jour peut signifier la naissance d'un nouveau continent, d'un nouveau concept. Cet univers est aussi...
...Le vôtre.
:blackrose:


EDIT: Les galeries ne sont pas définitives, j'organiserai probablement le groupe au fur et à mesure. Et pour le moment, je crois que je n'aurais pas besoin d'admins ou de modos, non pas que je sois une grosse égoïste :giggle: mais plutôt car je crois que je vais pouvoir l'administrer seule et car je ne veux pas vous embêter avec ça :) Les histoires seront probablement en français car il m'est plus facile d'écrire dans ma langue maternelle pour faire passer les sentiments, les idées (c'est assez évident, non, ce que je dis là ?) mais, DA étant une communauté majoritairement anglophone, je vais essayer de proposer une traduction :heart:

CONTEST: DEADLINE EXTENSION:star:DEADLINE EXTENSION!:star:
I'm not a lot on dA those days, so I cannot answer properly all your questions about my world and OC. Some people also told me they were interested in entering but they had also other projects to take care of or personnal issues.
So I decided to extend the deadline (but it will be once and for all ;)) to :
:star:MAY, 11th (at 11:59 p.m. French hour):star:
For those who have already done something, you can also choose to add/modify your entry: this is not because you post it that it is closed ;).
By the way, thank you so much for all the magnificient entries already entering! O_O

Lady Odessa was officially born on January, 16th, 2007 during the evening. At first, she was nothing more than a mere avatar for a forum.
Now, she is the core of a real project.
Almost 6 years here on dA. 6 years in the course of which I've realized how important were my world and characters. 6 years developping, creating them.
Thanks to your sup

Je ne suis pas très présente sur dA en ce moment et du coup cela ralentit mon rythme de réponse à vos questions. De plus, certaines personnes qui veulent entrer dans le concours ont d'autres projets/obligations personnelles et la première deadline était un peu courte pour leur permettre de travailler sereinement.
Du coup la nouvelle (et dernière) deadline sera:
:star:11 MAI 2014 (à 23:59 heure française):star:
J'ajoute que ceux qui ont déjà fait quelque chose peuvent parfaitement peaufiner, ajouter es éléments s'ils le veulent, ce n'est pas parce que votre participation est postée qu'elle est "close" ;)
En tout cas, merci à vous tous pour les magnifiques travaux qui concourent déjà! O_O

Thanks to your support :heart:
All your words, comments, critiques helped me in this process and I wouldn't even be able to go so far without you...
So now, to celebrate this, I've decided to organize a contest, my very first contest since I joined dA :dance:

:iconrioyukiix::icongrelly::icongrelly::icongrelly::icongrelly::icongrelly::iconvanitytheechidna:

CATEGORIES

Examples:
Odessa by hydriss28Art Trade - Ereshkidal by Wanini

:blackrose: CROSSOVER: Your OC meet my OC! Funny or warlike, mischevious or friendly, imagine a situation between our respective OC.
Examples:
FLY AWAY LITTLE FRIEND by CHEYENNE75Commission :: Odessa and Elyra by Fanhir

:blackrose: YOUR SHREDDED LANDS OC: My world aims at becoming a RPG one day: so, if it will, what kind of character would you like to play in a campaign ? Which avatar would you create to discover the Shredded Lands ?
Examples:
Premiers pas sur les Terres Lacerees Part IAu premier pas, un frisson envahit tout son être, au second, son corps s’engourdit jusqu’à l’ivresse…au troisième...l’alentour prit des couleurs et des formes étonnantes, les rochers invitèrent les maigres arbustes à danser, et les étangs quittèrent leur place pour s’élever en une myriade d’oiseaux translucides…
…La nuit tomba d’un coup !
…Lorsque le petit homme reprit conscience, les ombres s’étaient allongées. L’air avait une légère odeur de souffre, et la sensibilité perçue au bout de ses doigts trahissait une forte présence d’oxygène dans l’atmosphère.
 
Étonnement, ce qui venait de le foudroyer, semblait maintenant lui apporter une énergie nouvelle, ses sens se firent plus vifs, et son esprit s’emplit de nouvelles perceptions.
Ainsi, ap

RULES


:rose: The contest starts on January, 16th (at 00:01 a.m. French hour) and ends on April, 21st (at 11:59 p.m. French hour)

:rose: Your entry must be a new one and notify in the artist's comment it has been done for this contest :)

:rose: I wil answer any question, don't be shy, I don't bite ;) Just try to respect my OC, their characters and main features (concerning the clothes, don't worry, you can change their outfits as long as it is fantasy-themed).

:rose: No porn, extreme violence and gore or odd pairing, please! (sensuality, slightly erotic, and a bit or blood are ok though).

:rose: I ask for at least a minimum of background, or at least a frame or just some ornamental element, not a portrait in the middle of a blank sheet.

:rose: Every kind of media are accepted (drawing, painting, 3D, text...)

:rose:  No collabs, please ! Not that I wouldn't like it, but I wouldn't be able to give your prizes as you sill deserve it, that would be unfair.

:rose:  If you use stocks or models, please credit them ;)

:rose: If you choose the" YOUR SHREDDED LANDS OC" category, a mix drawing+little story background would be greatly appreciated ;)

:rose: 3 entries/person at the most (in case you would like to enter each category... but you can also draw 2 crossovers or 1 crossover+2 artworks about my OC, you're free for this point ;))

:rose: MOST IMPORTANT RULE: HAVE FUN! :D

NOTES:
-In case of a lack or too many entries, I might change slightly the rules in an update...
-I won't comment your artworks (at least at first), it doesn't mean I'm not interested in them, just that I know how much I can be a spoiling brat :rofl:

Oh j'avais pas vu que tu avais un groupe dédié à ton univers. Quand j'arrêterais de courir il faudrait que je m'y plonge. En tout cas je suis admirative de tout ce travail de création. :)

Lorsque l'on part du néant.... que survient l'apparition des dieux, la création des mondes, des créatures, des peuples, leurs passés et leur présent...

Lorsque l'on pose les calendriers , les langages, les monnaies, les coutumes...

Lorsque l'on décrit les tensions, les ententes, les personnages héroïques parfois maléfiques, la gardeur et la décadence des citées...

...Alors il ne s'agit plus de la création d'un simple monde...DameOdessa

...Mais celle d'une Mythologie tout entière !
Dans sa splendeur immense, complexe et maitrisée, voici la genèse une œuvre de haute précision, et d'une grande cohérence...
...un travail digne des hôtes de l'Olympe, qui ne semble pourtant pas effrayer Lilith...

Je commence tout juste à découvrir l'immensité de votre projet DameOdessa, mais je peux déjà vous dire que la seule fois où j'ai rencontré une œuvre aux pareilles dimensions, c'était dans les travaux de Tolkien...du Silmarion à la trilogie...

Votre univers vous est propre Odessa, empreint de votre identité dans chaque composante et...sans limite...

Mille félicitation pour ce projet hors du commun, recevez tous mes encouragements, je veillerai à ce que les Êtres de Faërie vous apportent toutes les énergies dont vous aurez besoin...
