The Long Knives of Alyn Shir - Wides by Gorrem The Long Knives of Alyn Shir - Wides by Gorrem
One of my tasks was to illustrate short stories based on important characters from the Amalur IP. These stories were never published and doubtfully will be.

The first and only one I was able to do before the studio closed was Alyn Shir's. These were very fun and I learned a lot from doing them.

These are some of the smaller illustrations to support certain scenes. Doesn't make much sense without the context, but a big part the story was conspiracies if that's any hint. Lots of Gnomish treachery and backstabbing, that sort of thing.

Could you tell more? Like about the other characters featured in these short stories?

I am still playing Reckoning and am a great fan of Amalur. It's quite sad that the adventure won't continue with Copernicus. But one way or another, I am happy that fandom can still keep the verse alive.

There were going to be short stories based on some of the characters you encounter in Copernicus, one of which was going to be Alyn Shir. I'm glad to see there are still people interested in the IP!

You bet I am! The battles, skill trees, graphics and characters were amazing! Beside, the team created something unique with all of the Fae and their lore. Things like that can't be easily forgotten!

Pointy Dwarf: I knew it! I knew it was you!
Other Dwarf: Me? What'd I do?
Pointy Dwarf: You killed the human queen of the realm!
Other Dwarf: The who of the what now?

(elsewhere)

Dark Elf: *grunt* Okay, I hope you appreciate how far forward I'm leaning to whisper this into your ear. This knife is, like, eighty times longer than it needs to be.
Human Queen: *gasps* I thought I felt a twinge in my back an hour ago!
Dark Elf: ... and you didn't think to turn around while a thin piece of metal skewered your... entire abdominal cavity?
Human Queen: A lady keeps her deportment in all situations.
Dark Elf: *sigh* I guess it's okay this thing is cursed to blame it's every kill on someone random. Also I'm surprised you're not yet dead.
Human Queen: I told you. Deportment. *dies*

man, it is such a shame that amalur crashed and burned so bad. It was a good game, with so much talent (yourself included) behind it.

Always inspiring to see a scene between two characters talking. Looks indeed like there's a lot of treachery and whispering going around.
- the short stories, were they for the game or a side project for a book of sorts? Or aren't you allowed to tell how they were included?

Thanks! Character interaction is really fun to illustrate. It was a side project that would give further back story to some of the characters.

You're welcome ;]
- and thank you for the quick reply. Always nice to see info going around like this.
Indeed it is, and you seem to be really good at it too. Sadly I guess the side project will never really see the light as it was meant to (at this state?).
