ChairStory V: Design-A-Chair Contest

Name of the Chair: Nightmare's Monarch
I drew a huge load of inspiration from Lucid. Literally the second I saw her character concept, I fell in love with her enormous wings and the entire dream idea. I drew inspiration from the V theme by adding the beautiful neon colors that surround Lucid's character and incorporated a surrealistic design - something bright and dreamy.
Okay sooo. This is a throne-like chair marbled with the dreams of Maplers and characters alike. Lucid sits on the arm of it, entrancing the character into a dream-like state, hence the broad butterfly wings and many little ones surrounding it. I also added those details at the top of the throne with a hidden V.
The stats will be recovery of 500 mp and 500 hp every 10 seconds.
How do you get this equipment?
This aspect could be played with. I figured gaining the chair from the boss herself would be the obvious route, but of course the chair Gachapon could give it, as well as special events.
Another idea was that quests around Arcane River could give it too.
What's the story?
"This is Lucid's throne of nightmares, the Nightmare's Monarch. They say that those who sit in it experience a dream-like state, gaining Lucid's nightmarish powers in a new realm."
This throne seats the player. Upon sitting, Lucid appears, dancing butterflies and gleaming orbs around the player, empowering them as they sit on a throne of Maplers' dreams. The broad wings are symbolic of resurrection, escape, and flight.
How does it fit in Maple World?
I think it fits beautifully in Maple World because it's surrealistic and grand. I also think it would make a great addition to the chairs that already match the heroes, so why not a villain this time?
This was first hand drawn and colored, then scanned and edited on microsoft paint. I also heightened saturation to brighten the colors. Of course, it's by no means perfect, but I still think it's amazing c:
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!
"A comfy chair modeled after the raging erda. No erdas were harmed in the making. Recovers 100 HP and 100 MP every 10 seconds."
Completing "[Daily Quest] Vanishing Journey Research" 10 times.
It's based after the Raging Erdas that I saw when arriving at the Arcane River area upon 5th job advancement. The horns on the chair can glow bright, similar to the monsters that it is modeled after. The spheres of light surrounding the horns can dance around.
Trio Arcane Chair
This chair looks like an arcane symbol. Depending on what time of the day you sit on it, it shows different scenes!
If you sit on it at night time, the symbol will show you sitting in the paper boat with Kao in Nameless Town. Kao is observing the tree of memory and one of the...uhm...orbs (?) on the tree falls down and glows in Kao's hand. The stars in the night sky forms a V shape.
If you sit on it in the morning, the symbol will show a scene from Chu Chu Island. You will sit on a huge delicious sandwich, and Muto is staring you down. If possible I'd like Muto to be animated with mouth opening and closing as if he wants to eat the sandwich (and you). The stick holding the sandwich together has the V symbol on it XD
If you sit on the chair in the afternoon, the symbol will show a scene of Lucid and you sitting together in the Lucid boss fight room (first stage). Lucid will summon the flowers just like the boss fight, they will form a V shape (and totally not dangerous). This should be animated like the way the flowers appear in the boss fight.
It would be even cooler if the chair plays the music of the area that it shows (Nameless Town, Chu Chu Island, Lucid boss fight music or Lacheln music)
How to obtain this chair:
Event? Getting 5th job? Gachapon?
Story and How it fits Maple World:
I really like all three new areas (and Lucid specifically) and can't decide which one I want to make a chair for...so I did all three. I shaped them like arcane symbols since there's an arcane symbol for each town and it's a must have for fifth job. I think it fits Maple World cause everyone who has gone through fifth job advancement knows arcane symbols and probably went through or will go through these three areas.
If the image above is too small, here's one that's enlarged and you can totally see the unfinished details http://i.imgur.com/uwMSBD5.jpg
My image doesn't really look like arcane symbols...it should be more shiny and maybe more sparkly...
I need to stop procrastinating...
Good luck everyone
like how lucid has wings, but I these ones are blue, and the V5 formed a butterfly shape as well
With all the main classes surrounding the chair, with sparkly effects on the side!
How does it fit to maple world: It symbolizes many features presented from the v events and the new monsters.
How to Obtain: Once you finish the quest of decorating the tree of memory you obtain the this chair.
Description/Story: She would always run off in the middle of the night to see the only thing left in her life worth cherishing. It was a sycamore that would almost seem to glow at night with an unusual V shaped trunk and branches. Her family condition worsened and eventually she had to leave her home and the tree. Choking with tears she whispered “goodbye” to it as her parents was calling for her. She forgot about the tree as she was adapting to her new life. She always felt as if something was missing in her life. After her education, she got ready to move out again to fill the hole in her heart, and then a picture of the tree fell out of her suitcase. She got emotional looking at it not knowing the reasons why. She asks around hoping anyone would recognize the outline of the forest and scenery, but no one knew where it was. Close to giving up she sat down sobbing. A man walked up to her and recognized the picture and exclaimed that he knew where the place was. She wiped away her tears and as she was about to give her thanks to the mysterious person he wasn’t there. She reunites with the tree and sits down on one of the branches.
While it's just a sketch, it's a chair that is also a statue, either a gold or neon blue glass as the main color of the chair.
The head will be replaced with the chair owner's avatar, which is why I left that part blank.
This chair also hints at all 5 of the classes in my sketch:
- The peg leg symbolizing the pirate class
- The mask symbolizing the thief class
- The magician hat symbolizing the mage class
- The Sword symbolizing the warrior class
- And finally the quiver and arrows symbolizing the bowman class
The statue is also wearing equipment you obtain at level 1, because every class starts out new.
The statue also is (holding) a V logo on top of his/her hand, and while I'm not the best at animating, it would be spinning clockwise as it's animation.
Sparkle effects can be also seen in the sketch to show that the statue is shiny of course
The mushroom is there for comedic effects. (sorry mushroom)
Story: The long awaited journey to 5th job have finally been fullfilled! Our adventurers are in need of a light snack and have come upon the glorified pan. Hungry as they are, they decide to cook an egg only to have a V appear on the yolk. As it symbolizes a new beginning to the upcoming adventures, the explorers cheer and celebrate the first meal to a new journey
How do you obtain it? Obtained by getting 5th job
How is this relevant to Maplestory? It symbolizes the mapler's hunger in the rush to get 5th job
I wish all Maplers, An Awesome year,
and may the Force will be with you =].
(general design of the chair) Lucid vs Player vs Orchid doing a tug-of-war effect
Who doesn't want Lucid or Ochid as your waifu?!
Hero defeats Orchid and Lucid and falls under their harem. Talk to NPC Nana K in Henesys to claim your chair.
IGN - Lunarian
World - Windia
Sorry, posting error. F3
This is amazing!
It reminds me of my favourite chair (crystal memories), with the glowing orb effect.
I love it ^ ^
The Goddess Summoning Chair:
How do you get this equipment?
You have to get 5th job status and use your new skills to defeat any boss 5 times at any difficulty.
What’s the story?
The Goddess' of Maple took 10 years to create the 5th job skills for each class, they believe that this great power is only worthy of the greatest heroes to defend Maple World against the Black Mage. With great power comes great responsibility, they had to find a way to slowly release the power to each hero and not let the power consume them. Understanding the use of each skill by practicing them on bosses allow them to fully utilize the power behind each skill. Slowly gaining each skill and using them is key to becoming a great hero.
How does it fit in Maple World?
The Goddess Summoning Chair allows each players to join together to summon the Goddess and borrow her power. When five heroes combine their power together, the portal to the other dimension opens and slowly and generates power for each player. Sitting in the spinning charged chair together for 10 minutes will give a +30% boss damage boost for 10 minutes, giving them the taste of temporary immeasurable power to protect Maple World.
Chair name:Through Arcane
How to get this equipment??
-After Finishing all of Arcane River 3 side quests will open one for the vanishing journey, chuchu, and lachelein. When you finish 1 quest you get 1/3 of a piece of the chair. Once you gain all 3 you speak to all the goddesses to finally turn all three pieces into the chair
Whats the story??
-To commemorate your victory in the arcane river the 3 goddesses want to give you a special gift for all that you have done for maple world
How does it fit in maple world??
-I wanted to show appreciation for each section in the arcane river (and i feel like everyone glosses over muto and chu chu island MUTO IS ADORABLE WHAT DID HE DO TO DESERVE THIS) and having parts of the arcane river put together wont just remind someone of just one section, not two but three all sections that have their own individuality to their section in the Arcane River.
Thank you for submitting my entry for me!
**disclaimer: this chair doesn’t really have to do with V update, but I thought it would be a great addition to the Maplestory world.
Physical Description: Remember when the Kerning Square bubble tea’s would always hit you in the face while you were trying to get to the next escalator to CD’s? Did you ever think that the mango, cherry, melon bubble teas looked thirst-quenching while trying to finish the Kerning Square quests to regain Blake’s memories? Well look no further, the Angsty Bubble Tea Chair is here! Made in 3 different flavors each with their unique facial expression. While chilling on it’s straw, you can sit with a buddy and tapioca pearls will shoot out from the straw, just like in game, at your buddy. Just a friendly nostalgic feeling of having bubble tea pearls being shot at you. These chairs would be in jumbo form because who doesn’t enjoy jumbo chairs like the Giant Ducky Chair or Watermelon Bowl chair (+1 for hyped up popularity)
How to Obtain: This chair would probably be released through gachapon, just like the other jumbo chairs.
Item Description: Chill on this giant iced bubble tea to gain 500 HP and 500 MP every 10 seconds.
Im really excited to see the winners for this contest and maybe some amazing big chairs and art
Who doesnt love big blocking chairs?
