It’s night time, a crescent moon shows up on the sky, but with clouds flying past, and maybe it’s raining. You stand on the rooftop of a gothic European building in the middle of the city, gargoyles leaning down the sides and towers spouting up here and there. The city has more of these buildings, some towering up to the sky, windows as well as the traffic below you flicker with light.
As you fight, the sky slowly clears up and reveals a starry sky above the clouds. But as more blood is being spilled, the sky slowly turns crimson, the towers and the gargoyles start to crack and break, falling down into the traffic, causing chaos on the streets. And as you finish off your foe with an Ultra Combo, blood pours down from the crimson sky, the broken gargoyles are brought to life and flies off followed by hundreds of bats who fly out from the broken holes and windows from the towers.
More catacombs, since a big church would be almost similar to big castle like Sabrewulf’s stage. But if it were a church I would make stainglass windows in the background because that would be a focus point that would stand out about the stage including it possibly shattering as the fight rages.
The top of a cathedral at night, with a crescent moon, the gargoyles cracking and coming to life, the rain turning to blood… That’s an awesome picture you paint, @anon39655210! I’d have loved to have seen that stage.
I’m still holding out hope that we’ll get some sort of stage community fund. @TempusChaoti, is something like that even possible? I’m sure a lot of us would pay a good deal for them.
Now believe me, I know you guys don’t want to look like you’re withholding something, only to make us pay for it separately. I totally respect that. I also love the way the relit stages look and I get that there are already a lot of stages.
But given how great the stages have all been so far, can you blame us for wanting more? I’m sure nothing’s planned at the moment, but is it something you guys would be willing to look in to for the community fund? Shago move set met its goal in 3 days. Imagine how much a fund could bring in now with the growing player base and a carrot like five more stages. I really hope you’ll consider it.
Back on topic, I’d love to see this vampire’s stage set on a creaky wooden bridge where the slats crack and splinter, and dust falls from them with every step. In the background, the sky has nearly set behind the visage of a dark stone castle; its pillars jutting up in to the sky, it’s drawbridge to a nearby embankment closing as villagers with torches and pitchforks storm the walls.
As the battle continues in the foreground, night descends and the blood moon shines brightly. Bats fly through the sky and descend on the villagers just as a small fire breaks out in the castle. When the battle nears its conclusion, the flames in the castle become a raging inferno and as the final blow is struck, the castles nearest drum tower explodes in rain of shimmering sparks.
It’d also be cool if the opponent could get knocked off of the bridge and down a long way in to massive pile of bones that shatter in to thousands of splinters.
