The Universe of Valespia


In the coming weeks, I'll be putting together the all the sketches I've done for Striker as well as info plaques about the species and a little bit of their back ground information. Much of this information is hand written, some of it stream of thought as I crunched ideas in my head, so finding it and putting it together all in one spot has been an adventure. ^_^ I will say that to keep there from being spoilers before the release of Striker, I have left some information out and will come back and complete it in a month or so.
