Midjourney Monday: Lamordian Money

Midjourney Monday: Lamordian Money

The terms one enters to algorithmically inspire these images is in a discord server, so you can see what other people are doing and what terms they are using. Seeing someone else’s blueprints inspired me to try my hand at creating Lamordian cash bills for our Gothic Fantasy investigative game, Dread Domain Detectives Illustrated. Here’s what I ended up, good cash for a steampunk horror game inspired by Mary Shelley’s seminal science fiction novel.

You can see a few where I got interesting results but the form factor was limiting. I used the same terms but changed the size, so it was more of a cash size and shape.

I looked around and noticed that we can change the height and width and then we were cooking with gas. How will I use these? Maybe as subject dividers in blog posts or maybe as strange stickers I give my friends who are playing in that game with me. I’m really not sure.

Now we’re talking.

If you dig the above images, there are stickers for sale and all artists’ proceeds go to the National Network of Abortion Funds (and then Threadless tosses in some more).

Monday Midjourney: Doorways

Monday Midjourney: Doorways

I’ve been digging into the Midjourney algorithm for creating images, or as I like to think of it, painting with search terms. I’ve been having fun and thought I’d share one narrow group of things I’ve made, sharing some Midjourney stuff I’ve made every Monday.

I started with a really basic term and for whatever reason, the doors under these terms I liked are all orange. I’m not sure why.

After that I changed it up and made a door with a bit more guidance and loved these skull doors, especially the two grey slate doors with a skull on it below.

Tried to get something for my favorite monster but it wasn’t really successful, the only door I really liked was this one.

I’m interested in doing more Tiefling-related world-building. Got a pair of solid doors for a Tiefling barrow.

Why, you might ask, were the alien Illithid doors the most successful? Why more Illithid doors than anything else? Because when the algorithm makes up something odd, it doesn’t have to look like a door as we know it. Making surreal and alien things is a strong suit.

If you use these doors in your gaming, I’d love to hear from you about how things shook out at your table.
