Commission sketch concept done by *Valkyrie-Girl.
This is my non-MLP related story idea that I'm writing up, based roughly on the concept of the 'Lords of Midnight' game. The story is centered around Lord Sovereign Celeste and her quest to recruit the various Lords of the Free Kingdoms - legendary heroes who each possess a magical weapon or artifact as symbol of their office and position.
The story is mainly told in 'animal form' (for ease of illustration), but shifts to human form when fighting/combat occurs. All the characters transform for these sequences (though the characters themselves of any change, as it's meant as a more stylistic narrative device).
Illustrated above is Ser (Sir) Harmony, one of the famous Lords of Summer in the Sommerlands. Of all the Lords of Summer, he is the only one with experience with combat and battle. His symbol of office is the legendary Harmonious Blade, a magical weapon capable of great healing.
Name: Ser Harmony, Lord of Summer
Domain: The Sommerland - The Moors
Legendary Artifact: The Harmonious Blade (Sword)
Animal Race and Class: Hero-Knight Pony
