    Yeah, think Gas Town and the Bullet Farmers from Fury Road. Not every one of these folks is guaranteed to be responsible for a specific resource, but many of them do. Glampire’s kingdom is large and he needs some combination of warlords and whatever in the wasteland could be considered bureaucrats to get the job done. Not sure we’re going to ever definitively say how many of these folks there are because it’s so fun to invent them on the fly.

    @cap that is what I was hoping to hear, mostly because that gives the Lightning Dogs something to strike at would also be a blow to Glampire with having to be face to face with him.

    also this has been making the laps on my facebook so I’ll share it

    Wow, I’d totally forgotten about the GI Joe/ Street Fighter crossover. What a crazy thing!

    @maxacree @cap You have talked about the team going around the world and meeting others, specifically? Japan. Do the inhabitants have vehicles as well and if they do, will they be styled like 80s vehicles of the region?

    We have done 0 work on that, because that won’t be in Season 1 much. The most evolved idea for foreign wastelanders that have vehicles is probably the Ninja Cats. Rather than doing 80s-era real cars as inspiration, I’d probably look at 80s-era anime vehicles like you see in Akira or Bubblegum Crisis. Maybe throw in some of the Capsule Corporation Kei segment vehicles. I’d also probably arrange their crystals in such a way that they feel like Dekotora aesthetic.

    Question time Question time this one has been festering in my mind

    Since Queen Lich was human how does that play out with the Lightning Dogs perspective of her, do they believe she was human, and if so do they she her as some kind of eldritch horror?

    Much like meeting Glampire, Queen Lich’s human-esque appearance will really play with the LD’s expectations. Obviously shes freaky, obviously she’s not an intact specimen, but at least as far as Kane is concerned – think of everything they could learn! Plus, freaky though she may be, also like Glampire there’s a good chance she won’t appear to be an outright villain when they first meet her. It won’t take long for her to accidentally give up the fact that she’s a creep, but at least for a little while they’ll play nice and see what happens. You know, before the attempted vivisections.

    We may have an opportunity to play up a horror angle with her first appearance, then subvert it, then come back to it, but presently there isn’t a plan to actually make her horrifying in an eldritch sense – in appearance, sure, but not in a lingering, contextual way that the characters or the viewer would focus on, a la Lovecraftian horror.

    @cap cool I’ve always imagined she would have two personality, one being very regal and the other one being full on Mad scientist which that personality I imagine having the Drive of Dr. Frankenstein from the 1931 movie, the goals of Dr. moreau, the madness of Claude Rains take of the invisible man, and with the twisted humor of Dracula from the book.(mostly the part where Jonathan Harker figures out Dracula is some kind of monster, tries to leave and Dracula agrees he should leave but he summons a pack of wolves. Which terrifies Jonathan causing him to change his mind to stay, but Dracula is insisting he should leave in polite fashion while rabid wolves are growling at Jonathan. which is something I can she Queen Lich doing but with zombie cyborgs)

    I got some strong Queen Lich vibes from Dr. Gross, who’s appeared in some recent Adventure Time episodes.

    Queen Lich is very popular; do y’all find her more interesting than Glampire? Is it just that he has the Bowie touchstone that’s so dominant we all feel like we get his deal already?

    @maxacree I do find her more interesting, some of that is because he feels pretty set in stone. The other half is because she isn’t really flushed out but what we do know is just enough for my imagination to take over and fill in the spots with what I might think is cool.

    Dr. Gross gave me Queen Lich vibes too. It’s not a major concern, but now that she’s out there I’m making sure QL doesn’t have too much overlap.

    I also think of this when ever I think of Queen Lich
    It’s from a comedy horror manga series called Franken Fran, think “house md” meets “tales from the crypt”

    Question time

    We have an idea of the Event that ended the world was, but was the factor that stopped the human race on earth from bouncing back from the brink? Was it a simple numbers thing not an enough people to keep the species alive, did the Event make the human race sterile, or did the Event make it so that humans only give birth to so kind of proto-peoploids causing normal human to die off?
