    Default Art requests

    Norse style furniture and houses for dimensions. If you've ever played DAOC..that's exactly what I want.

    And Norse style armor. Elbow length sleeves, knee length chain byrnies (Norman style chainmail), goggle helms, maybe even copy over some of that neat Dwarven armor from Warhammer Online. I KNOW SOME OF YOU WORKED ON IT ! The Valsgarde helm would be fantastic.

    The thing I love about Rift armor is that it's pretty realistic for the most part...for some of the armor I've seen in other MMORPG's..real armorsmiths would laugh hysterically at it.

    And some Viking style swords. The Valkyrja sword from Albion Armory would be fantastic.

    While I really love Nordic inspired stuff, I don't think we have any precedent for that lore-wise in game do we? If I recall correctly, and please correct me if I am mistaken, I think:

    Kelari- Aztec/Mayan
    Bahmi- Mongolian/Maori
    Eth- Middle Eastern/North African

    High Elves- typical fantasy high elf stuff
    Mathosian- Central/Eastern European...? I think?
    Dwarves- ...wait, is it our dwarves that are Central/Eastern European??

    Where's Maelodia when you need him??

    Not that I am disagreeing, mind you. I already have a kind of Valkyrie-ish costume THAT I LOVE.

    Dwarves have traditionally been drawn from Norse lore. They're usually referred to as "svartalfar" or "dark elves" and were renowned smiths as they forged Freyja's necklace and Thor's hammer and Freyr's folding boat. Their home world in the Norse cosmology was Nidvellir.

    There's an amusing story about how Freyja slept with three dwarves to have Brisingamen made for her - that's her necklace and Odin wasn't too pleased with her being such a harlot.
