1 The Thriax...updated 11/23/18 on Mon Oct 22, 2018 8:23 pm

Reverend Spooky's House of Seasons kind of gave me a kick in the ass to get serious about my own storyline...The Thriax...Hopefully it ain't too boring to people...lol...A little backstory first, then a few shots of one of my characters...

The Thriax: The Thriax is 3 dimensions existing in the same place but on different planes, with a mysterious 4th dimension. To hold control over all 3 dimensions grants access to the 4th dimension...The home of Mezron...

Mezron: Mezron is the overseer of The Thriax. He exists in the 4th dimension. Mortal beings, as well as Immortal beings have spent AGES looking for Mezron's Eye, the supposed Key to the 4th Dimension, the Key that leads to ULTIMATE power to create or destroy a universe...

This is the first character I'd like to introduce to you...some have seen her before, maybe...

Whoracle: Whoracle was born in the 2nd dimension on the planet Zarquaff, a world that has borne the offspring of gods...In her youth, she showed great promise and soon became a demigod. She had great prowess with magic and could control men with just her looks alone. At 19, she entered a forbidden cave, Ashmal to her people, and found Mezron's Eye...Soon after, Whoracle became OBSESSED with controlling The Thriax...

Here's a few pics of Whoracle with Mezron's Eye...







Hopefully I can use this thread to show more of my characters...next up will be Whoracle's sister Synora...

Mezron's eye also appears to be your avatar. Good start to the story! Characters with obsessions usually do cool stuff!

Yes they do...remember the Quantius and Tanaylya storyline, Pontiacivan? It ended with Synora being brought back from "Limbo" to join a sister (Whoracle) that she despised...Those two will back stab each other relentlessly...

Nice presentation in the grand tradition of retro sci-fi. May I ask what font did you use? I've been looking for something like that for some time.

Very Cool, it's good to see Whoracle again and I'm guessing that she is still up to no good?

Welcome. And yes, I meant the font/typeface in the dialogue. But I use a conventional computer and fonts, so that's probably not something I can replicate. I do like it a lot more than the one I've used in my threads (like the Adventures of Space Princess or the Odinssons), and have been looking for it for some time (the giveaway letter, as far as I see it, is the E).

Great to see the again the Thriax here! I really enjoy your stories, it has a strong retro scifi vibe, brings back some cool memories from early star trek or the avengers (john steed n emma peel, not iron man and his friends :p)

@gubernator if you're looking for fonts to use on your PC, I highly recommend to visit DAFONT.COM, there are a ton of free to use fonts, some even with some reward function for the artists that created them. The downloaded fonts files are to be stored in your "fonts" folder on your main hard drive, they will install automatically on all softs you have on your computer from word to photoshop or alikes...

Thanks, blackpool. Not to hijack this thread, so briefly: I've looked at that site before, and I looked at their cartoon fonts again, but they don't have that or anything close enough. I actually know my way around fonts, and have customized some for my use in the past, and have the software and the skills to even make one, but I've been far too busy (and lazy) to try that with a cartoon font now.

Thanks all, glad you like it!...Now for a couple of more brief character backgrounds...
The Gress: The Gress are not actually a character but are a race of small skeletal beings. They are very mischievous. They don't intentionally try to harm but sometimes things get out of hand. They can be found on any world in any dimension of the Thriax. Because of this fact, Mezron has tasked them with the keeping of the Thriax Portals. They protect as well as power these portals. A fully charged Gress (gold in color) is placed inside a chamber, typically 4 chambers are needed to power each portal. As a Gress gets depleted, he/she starts turning a silver color. once fully silver, the Gress must recharge. It's because of this that each Thriax Portal will open at random times. I don't have any good Gress pics because I'm using those small halloween skeletons as fill ins. Anybody have any idea if they make 4-6 inch poseable skeletons? The Gress do have a supreme leader that i'll introduce at a later time...

Quantius: Some believe Quantius is as old as the universes themselves. No one is really sure because as far as recorded history goes, he's always been here. Not much more is really known about him. Quantius is a super genius scientist although his huge EGO and obsession with recreating Whoracle (for reasons only he knows at this time) has caused him issues, as you will see in this next photo story.

This I did a while back just because I could. Not really part of the storyline but it was an idea I had, along with uh, however many beers I had. (I should keep track of that, I guess...lol) Oh, and it introduces Baby Gress...

Hell yes! Glad I could light a fire for you to share these. Absolute blast. I really love the retro scifi aesthetic (That teleportation effect is so fun). And Quantius is genuinely creepy as hell looking. Is his head sculpted from scratch? The Gress have a great look all their own. They look a bit poseable too. I know you had said they are a stand in, but the look really works. But if you're looking for another option, look up "Re-ment Pose skeleton". They're cheap, super poseable, and have a neat look all their own. I think ideal for what you want them for.

Thanks guys! Reverend, that was actually Baby Gress, I made him from a keychain skeleton. He's a copper color and will turn gold colored as he "matures" (note: Gress do not actually mature, they only age...lol) The fill ins are little halloween decoration skeletons. They come on a string of 4 and are maybe 3 1/2" to 4 1/2" tall...no poseability at all...here's a couple of pics...







As you can see, limited uses. Thanks for the suggestion. I will check them out.
I do have a coo models 12" skeleton that will be The Gress Supreme Leader. More on him as I figure out his story (read that as "Let me have a few more beers")

As I mentioned earlier, one of The Gress' tasks is to protect the Thriax Portals...How do they do that, you ask? Why, with the Iron Gress, of course!!





And NO, he doesn't play drums Evil or Very Mad That was just left there from a shoot I did involving another character, a very central character actually...

And concerning the Quantius head sculpt...Not sure but I believe it was an original sculpt. I had bought a lot of six resin cast head sculpts from a seller on ebay. They had slight defects which the seller did disclose so I wasn't ripped off but in my mind six sculpts for $20 was a good deal. Quantius was one of them and I merely painted it...

Well, this installment introduces a couple of lackeys...





















You see, Whoracle knows that the Gress control the portals and they are also found of one particular person. By capturing a Gress and then capturing Leroy, she feels that will lead her to the Thriax Portals...where ever they may open...But, Leroy has his own secrets...but that's for another time...

Thanks...You don't need to worry about those two. They've hated each other since they met and STILL haven't seriously hurt each other...Kita is a bit hot headed, he gets it from his mother Ma Kita. Gorc is, well, kind of like Charles Bronson without the cool or the tough, but acts like he has it...Those two could have a series of their own but for now are a small part of The Thriax... Very Happy

While I'm at it, I may as well introduce a couple of more characters...These are 2 sisters that are part of Whoracle's "coven". Their names are Azuty and Ezrona...They are sisters rumored to be High Priestesses of Unguala, a cosmic based religion from the 1st Dimension. Unguala is based on cosmic energies, most notably Dark Xyton, which causes a cyclical pattern of expansion and contraction of each dimensional universe. Any slight change in this cyclical pattern, which can be felt by High Priests or Priestesses of Unguala, indicates an opening between dimensions...In other words...A Thriax Portal...here they can be seen speaking with the "Fire Oracle"

So fun! I love how Quantius's plan is utterly ridiculous, but Tanaylya seems to be having the desired effect on Synora. Maybe he does know what he's doing after all... Your mythology runs deep! Always look forward to more updates.

Thanks, Reverend! I'm glad you like it! Yea, Quantius' plan is ridiculous BUT he has figured out some things...First, theres a basic difference between the sisters...Whoracle likes men, Synora likes women, but if we go deeper we find that Whoracle, while desiring men, still has the need to be in control. In control of men, her minions, The Thriax, basically everything and she will do anything to achieve her goals. Synora, on the other hand, is more inclined to follow her desires, in this case, Tanaylya, versus her ambitions...That's not to say that Synora doesn't have a nasty side...

Thanks, GubernatorFan. I have many more characters to show. Thank you for giving me and the others a place to show them...



Funny little side story. The TBLeague body that I used for Synora was actually meant as an upgrade for Whoracle. But, as fate would have it, the Scarlett Witch sculpt I bought arrived about the same time as the body and thus Synora was created...lol...I still need to upgrade Whoracle...besides that, those boots that Whoracle has took me almost an hour to lace up, not really looking forward to doing it again...lol...my eyes ain't what they used to be...
