This is the crest of Hypertechnologies' Avalon Apartments,( Part of the Veyltrey Aerospace 'Camelot Cultural Complex' at Hypertechnologies inc.) where most of the Nu-Gen staff reside. The gryphon depicted is an Arlosian aquilleon (Pantheraquilas arlosi). The background is derived from the flag of Trinatia-the Tri-Nation Alliance which replaced the Usani Empire. The vertical line represents 'Dreamland sea'.It devides Westus from the rest. The horizontal line is the old 'Mason-Dixon' line which seperates Nothus from Sothus. I drew the original of the gryphon; on a small peice of paper in high school. It is one of the very few such drawings from High school that still exist. I incorporated it into the shield/ crest in 1993 but, never colorized it until March (Or there abouts) of 1998. I have always intended to make a 3D relief of this plaque, and, I will when I get the chance and the inspiration...I have finally replaced the digi-cam pic with a scanned pic. What do you think of it now?
