Sketched: the world of Illustratio

Sketched: the world of Illustratio


A pencil in the hands of a competent artist is a valuable tool. Some can even bring their characters to life...literally. In this world, you are a Sketch, wielding the Artist's magic Pencil. The creation has become the creator...

495 readers have visited Sketched: the world of Illustratio since moonknight created it.


You are a sketch. You were lovingly created by the hands of the Artist, and are living in the world of Illustratio, otherwise known as the Sketchbook.

The Artist feels much joy over the creations, who grow, and make romances, rivalries, and friendships with one another. Every one of the Sketches can talk to each other through dialogue boxes and move through the pages of the Sketchbook with ease, each page filled to the brim with details of urban cityscapes and soft watercolor scenery.

Then one day he drops his magic Pencil, and it falls into your world. Artist decides that he will allow the sketches to be the sketchers, and create their own creations. The Sketches decide to take turns with the Pencil. Will it be a tool of joy...or a weapon of destruction? You decide.


The Artist has decided to leave his creations alone and watch them develop day by day, although he will sometimes use the almighty death tool, the Eraser, to destroy any Sketch guilty of misbehaving or a crime worthy of capital punishment. He can even reach into the sketchbook and touch his creations, resulting in many handshakes between the Sketches and this almighty being. They eat and drink in soup kitchens created by the Artist.


The Artist(OPEN)
Sketches(OPEN): The Artist is very talented, and each tiny figure in his massive Sketchbook is extremely detailed. Most are realistic, although some are anime or cartoon style. They can be human, humanoid, supernatural (vampire, demon, angel, etc), or anthro.

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.
