Welcome to the 9th PJ-Official ISO collab fellow members of Pixel Joint!

This time, the theme is the one that we have been asked for the most: Medieval! This includes everything medieval like castles, knights and of course medieval fantasy elements such as wizards and dragons - but do not be limited to medieval Europe, you're free to include elements from American, Asian, African, Nordic or Middle Eastern medieval cultures. It's time to get Medieval!

Collab Rules, Specs, Notes and FAQ on Post 3 below

This project features Reo's award winning palette.
If you submit your tile to your PJ Gallery (which you should) you do not have to credit Reo but it would be nice of you.

Scale example:


Characters in the scale example are drawn by vierbit in the previous collab.

This collab is being run by your fellow PJ moderators.

Previous ISO collabs ran by PJ:
ISO-ology, I SOak, I SO dead people, ISOtopes, ISOcalypse Now!, Pirates of the ISObbean, PrehISOria, Planet ISO,

Rules
- You can create more than one tile but your tile may not neighbor your own tile (even diagonally).
- Only one active tile reservation at any one time per participant. You must finish a tile before making a new one.
- Once you reserve a tile you must post an initial WIP within 4 days so it doesn't hold others up. 4 days pass quickly, so it is a good idea to post your WIP as soon as possible.
- Once you post an initial WIP you get 7 days to update your tile or post a comment letting us know its active. Every new WIP/post update (busy, school, work, sick, moving, etc.) thereafter buys you another 7 days. This period is given so that you don't have to rush it, try not to forget your reservation.
- Outer tiles MUST use transparency to 'break the grid' (See the last collab edges HERE).
- Inner tiles CAN NOT use transparency.
- You must use the supplied palette colors (14) only, but you don't have to use them all in your tile (Those making outer tiles will have one extra color for transparency).
- NO animations.
- Your tile must match the tiles surrounding yours, unless your tile has no neighbors (up to first 10 tiles). This will become increasingly tougher as tiles get added. Some tiles will need to match on as many as 4 sides.
- Matching your neighbors does not mean it has to continue their idea/concept. Just that it blends seamlessly somehow. Note that this doesn't mean you're supposed to destroy your neighbors' ideas. Stay within the collab spirit!
- Please keep the collab's general light-source and scale as shown below consistent in your tile. This may be tweaked in your tile if you use secondary light sources.
- Please post your tile on its own as a comment and make sure to say what number it is and it will be added to the collab master image by a Collab Manager in order to keep the color palette true.
- Your tile may be added to the master image in WIP stages if it shows the tile's direction enough to help others visualize their own tiles.

Special Rules
- The first 10 tiles may be anywhere at all and require no neighboring tiles. If you pick one of these first 10 tiles, please try to finish your tile a.s.a.p. in order to open up space for others.
- From the 11th tile on (or once a finished tile has been put into place) your new tile reservations MUST have at least one neighboring (a diagonal neighbor is not enough except for border tiles) tile already posted that your tile blends into.
- In the event that a tile is made without a reservation or 2 people accidentally work on the same tile a special vote may be held, or a duel to the death may be started by the 2 people.
- Special rule(s) may be added to accommodate whatever loophole y'alls manage to find and exploit.

Special request from Gecimen: Let us have some means of contacting you in case you forget your reservation. The most common way is setting your PJ account to email you whenever you receive a PM.

Notes
- Novice or pro, all are encouraged to collaborate.
- Possible tile rejection if your tile is not in isometric projection or fails in scale.
- Possible tile rejection if your tile does not match and blend into your neighbor(s) tile.
- Possible tile rejection if your tile's concept defies the collab theme.
- Possible tile rejection if your tile just doesn't blend in with some degree of harmony. Should this happen to you check for comments left for you... there will be some!
- You can get tips and help to improve your tile on this thread. No need to make a separate WIP thread.
- You are encouraged to take all c+c on your tile. You do not need to apply all given c+c but please don't ignore them. Especially from your neighbor. Remember this is a 'collaboration'.
- Please use Yanrishatum's upgraded 'PJ Image Specs' tool HERE to check your final tile colors has max 14 colors (+ transparency, 15 if an outer tile) and the right colors.

FAQ:
Q: Can I extend my tile over someone else's tile?
A: No. You can only ask them to edit their own tile, and if they don't, you'll have to find another way. The only exception is border tiles where you can slightly extend over your neighbor's transparent space (for continuity reasons).
Note: "your neighbor's transparent space" means you do have an existing neighbor tile.

Q: If I have a border tile, can I extend my tile further than the border of the collab image?
A: Yes. We will enlarge the collab image as required. As with everything, be reasonable on this (don't put a 100 px long tentpole just for the sake of enlarging the image size). Here are some examples of border tiles from PrehISOria (tiles belong to S.g.m., Gecimen, Night, Vierbit):


Q: What can I do if I want to draw something really big?
A: If you want to draw something that will take more than a tile, you can draw a lineart sketch and ask people to join your "mini collab". If it's something interesting, you will certainly find people. Then you do your own part and let other people do their own thing. Everyone can add their own taste into their own tiles. You can check previous collabs for mini collabs.

Q: Can somebody else finish my tile from where I left?
A: No. We may allow this under very special circumstances (e.g. health) but normally unless you want to finish your tile, you have to give up on it.

Q: Is it OK to drop my reservation? Will I be banned?
A: Not at all. You can drop your reservations as many times as you want.

Q: I can't reach a certain quality. What should I do?
A: Collabs are great for this. You can work on your neighbor tiles, listen to criticism, and start over as many times as you want. What matters most is you to be satisfied, and learn in the process. As long as we see you have given your best effort and your tile meets the criteria such as continuity, theme, lighting, scale & perspective; we will accept it.

Q: Can I use some existing pixels in my tile?
A: No, even if it was made by you. Everything in your tile must be made for this collab, by yourself.

Q: When I reserve a tile, do I need confirmation by mods to begin working on it?
A: Confirmation by mods may take upto 24 hours. So, if you are sure of these, you can begin working without confirmation.
1- your previous tile (if any) is finished,
2- you haven't made a neighboring tile previously,
3- the same tile is not claimed by someone else (check out the reservation table & latest posts),
4- the tile has a completed neighboring tile by someone else (except for first 10 tiles).

I've been wanting to get in at the start of a collab for a while but I'm always too late.

I'd like #42 if at all possible. We'll see if I can find the meaning of life the universe and everything.

Edit: Finally got through. I've been trying to post for a while but was getting a permission denied error for the longest time.

@Mirre, Eggy and Lehmure, sure they are yours. We're all cluttered on the top but well....

@Reo, amazing already. I can see they are playing chess but don't know if they are from a movie or something.

Last 2 un-neighbored tiles to claim. Please take them from southern part of the collab.

Then you got a excellent memory. Its sad that i didn't take any time to practice pixel art since then.

A collab is a nice occasion to try it once more. :)

So here is my first idea. A Mayan temple.

Heyo, new guy here, interested in making some tiles. Quick question, the hexadecimal codes from Reo's palette are supposed to be the colors right? When I downloaded the image on Aseprite, I got different colors from the numbers and had to manually correct. Is it supposed to be like that from the image itself or is there some secret setting on Aseprite? Thanks in advance.

I haven't checked them myself but if you download the palette image and work with it, it will be allright.
Also I'll write here once tiles become available, which is when the first person posts their finished tile.

@Esven: Great tile! Nice to see such a detailed building, bodes well for the rest of the collab. A humble suggestion from me would be to maybe add a couple of small birds on the roof?

@Krugelix: Good start! My main critiques for you would be to connect all those broken lines, so it doesn't just look like a row of dots. I would also consider not using the beige colors for the pyramid since you are also using those shades in your character as well as in the ground, makes it all blend together. The purple+green options can stand in for grey/blue stone in the pyramid.

In addition to Reo's comments, I'd increase the contrast of the sides a little bit, here is an example.

@marcelcomics yes.

@maye, pick one. you can pick next to Esven's or Reo's tiles.

@Reo amazing!

34, 36, 37, 49, 50, 51, 52 are ripe for taking.

Note to all: I am fixing your colors before I put on the main image but it would still save me some time if you double checked :)

Note 2: I removed the hex codes until they are fixed by a volunteer :)

Well first time participants usually have problems in geometry but yours is fine Iíd focus on grass and soil texture and maybe stone texture.

Although actually I think edges don't really match. I will fix that along with fluffy cobble stones, lazy grass texture, and could-be-better soil
