The Banner Saga by Yula568 The Banner Saga by Yula568
"The gods are dead.

In their wake, pony and aries
survived through a tenuous
alliance, driving black 
destroyers called dredge deep
into the northern wastes.

Now is an era of growth
and trade. Life goes on.

Only one thing has stopped.

The sun."

My first fanart of 2014 :aww:

"The Banner Saga" is a game developed by Stoic Studio. And I love it! :love: -> stoicstudio.com/

Also it fits perfectly into the pony history. It's an uncertain time, when villages wander in the snowy wastelands, after their homes are destroyed by the creatures called "dredge". When the second "great war" is about to break out, Rook, the huntsman and his daughter Allette, must flee from their home along with their clan... and Rook faces a terrible burden, as the passing chieftain name him as his sucessor. Rook must face the difficulties of a leader in a chaotic time. They must make alliances and fight for their survival.

So... a crossover was inevitable in my head. (I called the goat-people "aries" after the astrological sign.) As I saw the giants and humans in Banner Saga, I thought about the relation of ponies and goats in the anchient times.

I think the MLP verse could totally use a "giant" species. Maybe giraffes, but that's too easy.

Also, 5 for you for giving recognition for this awesome game.

Hello! I'd like to invite you to post your fan-art at the wiki of the game: bannersaga.gamepedia.com/Fan_A…. You can easily create an account, upload your artwork and display it there along with a short description of your creation. Alternatively, you can just place a link to your artwork (e.g. here, in dA). Finally, you can just give us the permission to do all that for you! Thanks for the awesome artwork; we'd love to see more :)

Hello.
Sorry for the late answer. I don't realy know. 
This picture is a pony art and I don't think, it would fit in on wiki.
And I don't have wiki account to submit.

But, if you can add the picture yourself and you realy want it,
I give you the permission to submit in my name.

Please credit me, and link the DeviantArt page of the picture!

Thank you :)

OK, you're up! I thank you ;)

I wonder how you're gonna draw the characters of the "horseborn" race that are said to appear in the following parts of "The Banner Saga"! -- hydra-media.cursecdn.com/banne…

Very creative fan art! Now personally I mightn't be the biggest fan of ponies, but the way in which you've captured the spirit of Banner Saga is stunning and weirdly close to the original (despite the lack of actual humans or varl :))

I'm glad to see  Banner Saga fan art on dA and am excited for more. My first upload of 2014 was also a Banner Saga inspired drawing. Would love to hear your feedback should you have the time, otherwise I'll be silently watching for more fan art here :)

*Spoiler*
She don't have to die. You can say "no", when she asks. She will not be angry or anything. She understand, if you want to protect her. I went this way, because... Rook want to protect his dauther. I think, this is a much more sensible ending.

But i don't have gut to fight that boss again. Maybe i will in future. But not now. I'm too sad with that ending to fight. Like at the end of The Walking Dead The Game season 1.

I thought that too ^^; But I wanted this ending, and I wanted to keep Egil alive too, so Alette can have someone in the end. They didn't mention it, but his survival is an achivement, so I think if he is alive, that will count in the next episode.
Aaaan yes ^^; Bellower is a bit hard boss, compared to the rest of the game. I lost several times, when I found a hint about the use of the Silver Arrow. The point is: Bellower's armor must be lower, than the Arrow-Bearer-Charater's hp. When I focused to this, It was a bit easier to bring him down :aww:

I know that. But my problem is when most of my strongest characters is dead (by story) or betray me (by story too) or.....by my chose (i lame myself everytimes i play for their dead). I must fight Bellower with many character that i don't give crap about (Is this somekind of punishment for not take care of them ???).

So you can imagine how hard to me when just with few hit (3 to 5), my Varl will go right straight to Vahalla. Don't need to mention about human, they nearly useless in this War of Titans. Except Rook, that guy is Badass.

great ponyfication, you kept the bleak atmosphere of the game.

goats were a good coiche for varl... did you choose muskox en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muskox or regular goat?
 because i saw some varl with muskoxe horns in the game.
