Oddments: A Magic Shop (Sparse)
What is Sparse about?
A young cat flees her home to the quiet town of Mistseek in a foreign country in order to start a magic shop, something she'd always dreamed of. An ominous spreading curse that threatens all of Pendalosa now threatens her new friends and home.
- The setting is alternative fantasy "steampunk" or "cursepunk" with water-powered artifacts, regulated by the Cursed Artifacts Guild locally.
- There are no human races, only animal-based ones.
- Mistseek is but one city of Pendalosa, on the planet Pevrea.
- The predicted audience is young teens/adults + older adults who enjoyed Redwall or Secret of NIMH, Animal Crossing, Pokemon and Zelda in their youth.
- Software used will be Krita, Blender, Adobe Animate and Toonboom Harmony Pro.
I also read the first page of the dialogue to get a feel for how long the script will play out. Current estimate holds at ten-fifteen minutes.
What's a manabeast?
A manabeast is a creature that devours mana, an ordinary feranoth beast and changes due to its new diet of mana. They grow larger and bizarre, much in the same way a Noxitus-cursed creature does, but not as twisted or dark.

Some animations that I've made.
There are two moons orbiting Pevrea: Aria and Noxitus. Each has its own unique effect on the planet.
The "mana" moon is the moon that spawned all life on the planet and created the energies inside the planet. Pevrea has mana volcanoes, and the moon itself was actually formed from the crust of the planet during a collision with another celestial body.
The "curse" moon is made of pure Noxite and named after the ore it's composed of. The meteorites that fall to Pevrea usually land in the ocean, leading to some unforeseen consequences. The collision of Noxitus with Pevrea created the sister moon Aria.
