Core Symbols Challenge¶
We are in the very beginning of the journey towards Words of Power.
As a first step we need to create atomic elements of Magic - symbols.
I've selected an initial set of symbols that will serve as a solid base for a magic system and I need you to help me find their representations!
In other words, I want you to draw symbols for basic concepts below.
Let's define drawing of a symbol (or just drawing) to be a series of 2D curves graphically representing a symbol.
There are no colors associated with a symbol, only shape and orientation.
The size/scale doesn't matter.
This is a rough equivalent of pen & paper.
Symbols will be repeatedly drawn by mages using various pointing devices so drawings must not be overly complex or otherwise annoying to replicate.
Finally, symbols need to be distinct. No two symbols should be too similar.
Use wopeditor, paper, strings or whatever else you want¶
You can use wopeditor
to draw symbols using mouse (and other pointing devices) in TexnoMagic format
which allows easy sharing of entire magic alphabet as a single zip file and you
can even upload your alphabet to wop.mod.io where everyone
with (or without)
wopeditor can download and modify it easily.
If you don't want to use my experimental software, please feel free to draw symbols using any method you want, as long as you can share a picture of the result.
Symbols in search of Form¶
Use the power of your mind to translate following words into their basic symbolic form:
- lightning / electro
shapes (spell carriers)¶
- bolt / missile / projectile
- ball / exploding projectile
- beam / line
- area / circle
- self / I
Share your Drawings ♥¶
Any amount of symbols is welcome, no need to draw them all.
Thanks a lot, I hope you have a creative time with symbols and concepts!
