The Word of Amber

The dates I have on various files related to this are: 2017-02-13, 2017-02-16, 2017-02-17, 2017-03-03, 2017-03-04, 2017-03-06, 2018-01-17, 2020-01-15 and 2020-01-22. I hesitate to say how substantial any of those days are. The approximate order of execution was text, spritework, two-week-break, panel-one-drawing, edit-script-to-accommodate-solidified-timeline-position, minor-edit-faffing, two-year-backburn, removing-that-timeline-impliccation, text-tweaking.

This is the first time any drawing (panel 1) was 100% digital - as opposed to drawn-on-paper-then-scanned-then-traced/cleaned. It was easier than I expected. Any other time I tried, I made one line, erased it, and never really got any further than that. It probably helped that what I needed to start Plume's head and Chatot was more ovals than lines.

And, yes, I did need that drawing to explicitly show Amber strangling a Chatot Iaqo - rather than implying it via the sprites I stole had available.

I hope this is obvious, but Lord Amber is incapable of speaking coherently and that incoherence is frustrating him.

I couldn't tell you the timestamps now, but I picked Amber's non-bee-movie-script lines by going to a few random timestamps in Chatty Yellow's VODs and taking the first-or-second thing Iaqo said after that timestamp. Or maybe any line, not just the text-to-speech ones, I don't really remember. Point is, I mined those lines from the stream. The lines are probably a bit too curated to be truly random, but I doubt I'd be able to convincingly simulate TPPSim if I tried to just say a line off-the-cuff.

If Ultra Moon was any indication, Lord Plume broke language for everything except Rotom. Not that there's any reason for them to be anywhere near eachother in the timeline; or for the other name-borking runs, Pyrite and White2, to have any relation to this either.

Any point that is specified to the millionth of a pixel was done in Inkscape. Any point that is aligned with the pixel grid was done in notepad or jedit.
