    Good stuff.

    Remember that the first three links you posted will be dead in a few days, so someone will need to manually copy-paste the text if they want it to survive. Might need to rehost the images too since I'm not sure if the old media section is surviving or not (though I expect NK will have this covered).

    The pic from the Zam interview reminds me more of a worshiper then a god. The question is, if he is indeed a worshiper, which of the speculated 'gods' might he be worshiping?

    if you look over to the runes thread you will see it is starting to tie in with this one
    The pessimist sees the glass as half empty. The optimist sees it half full. The engineer sees the glass as twice as big as it needs to be.

    if you notice the "Gods" don't have hand Gems, that second picture is most likely just two seeds...

    that's definitely the Gold "God" in the middle of the first picture the "Line Up"

    we already knew they were seeds. Guess you didn't see that when it was posted. Its included because of the things they are wearing/body are from the god picture.

    the guys arm, tattoos and necklace. the girls hairband and dark spots on her back.

    So... has anyone tried to name these guys yet?

    Yes. A few people, but I don't know if they were saved from the old thread.

    I don't actually think we know enough about them yet to name them however.

    Fair point. I suppose I'll just have to wait for new content...

    Oh neat! I hadn't noticed that, now that you've pointed it out I can see the connection between the girls hairband and the spots, and the guys tattoos. but how are you connecting the arm and necklace?

    sorry for the double post, but I wanted to link this...

    I had to go back and look at a larger image,
    I set this up for the "Runes" thread 'even tho it didn't get used'

    That didn't get used in the rune thread (made by me too) because it does not have any runes. I seem to have forgotten where the connection to the necklace was made but i think there was one. The arm is from the shadow guy on the left crouching, its pretty much his arm on a seeds body.Your link didn't work because you posted the image link twice in one thing.

    it works exactly how it's suposed to, A small forum sized image "AS a thumbnail/link, to a larger image" with BBCode turned on it dose this>
    RSlISQu.png

    and I wasn't talking bout you not using it, I was talking about trying to get @Geveo to use it, so the forum scale would be back in line... I'm OCD about stuff ~_~ unless I just ignore everything...

    and yeah I can kind of see the resemblance of the arms,

    do you have this one too? I thought it was a neat link,

    added it in for sake of having all know pictures. the 2 pictures seem to be a slight difference in art style as it looks animeish. the opening post overall is getting quite well clogged with images, may have to clean it up and put stuff into spoilers.
  • VisigothVisigoth REGISTERED Posts: 268
    yeah, if you can't tell I <3 images!

    Thanks for adding these images Visigoth. I was hoping someone would post the third / fourth ones on the forums eventually. Really interesting.

    As for naming these guys - we think that the runes that were released recently might hold the some of the names for these guys. Want to pop over and see if any of the names match any of the Gods? viewtopic.php?f=8&t=51

    And then come back here and speculate. :mrgreen:

    How do you suppose this connects with these figures?

    Well, just sort of throwing this out there, but I've noticed something, though it is merely theoretical (Implying everything is anything but theoretical) Every single god has a mask, with the exception of the Blue God to the far right (Which I have dubbed the god of magic, in my personal view) And each mask has a different animal aspect (From left to right: Squid, Elephant, Eagle (Hawk?), Coyote (Jackal?), Bull, Butterfly, Jaguar, Rabbit, Bat, Turtle and (I assume) Another Canine for the end) From this I suppose one could imply that their aspect, or element, or season/homeland, whatever one may call it, could also be represented in these details. I believe it is clear that the Goddess on the far left is the Sea Goddess (The Ocean is a cruel Mistress indeed) perhaps the next after her is savanna's or Deserts, then the sky, then something like Mischief, then War, etc. Perhaps we need to take a closer look at their outfits and/or apparent personality types to bring about some clear understanding of the gods and who/how they are, and what they may or may not embody.

    tl;dr

    Damn, look at those fine ass masks.

    My opinion on who those sculptures are of:
    Sky, Rabbit, Elephant, Squid.

    do you think its possible that these gods are based off some of the developers somehow or do you think they are completely separate

    I already counted and there are more devs. Not ruling it out but we lack information at this point in time.

    Hey there, everyone.

    Thanks for continuing the original Gods of TUG (Speculation) thread, spacedot, from the old forum now archived here.

    I recently saw the photo shown below on the Nerdkingdom Pintrest and I was wondering why this particular entity was singled out. She definitely looks like she could be a new take on the second entity from the left in the image of what we originally called the Pantheon/Magnificent 12 (M12). I'd be surprised if "she" wasn't one and the same. It could simply be coincidence, but what would be the fun in that? No, let's speculate! I'm wondering if maybe "she" holds significance in regards to the current theme of "TUG survival games" or maybe something coming soon?

    (Click the image for a larger resolution)

    I'm also really curious if more of these singled-out images are currently in the works and which one will follow next. We've seen at least one other entity (from M12) singled out before. "He" is one of my personal favorites, the one I originally called "Pherull"!

    What are your guys' thoughts on the new image? Maybe this is proof that the Pantheon is something more significant...

    Good find. I like that they're refining their characters with musculature and detail. Note the mistake in the sketch with normal hands.

    However of all the 12 to change I feel like this one was closest to being right. For example originally she read as short, stocky, yet confident and benevolent. She helped round a diverse group. Here though you can see she's not thin but she's much taller and harder.

    She's lost that charming personality. And the hair is weird. Maybe two braids pulled over the shoulders would emulate tusks better, but flowing locks just doesn't read right for me. :/
  • spacedotspacedot REGISTERED Posts: 416 Seed
    I still belive it could be Merylisk using herself has inspiration. But when i went down this path i couldn't figure out who the others would be. Still nice to see more of jans art. I think they are the least posting artist of the team.
