    Notes

    The "Seeds Of Deception" project is made of 7 22-pages long chapters, each focusing on a different character from before the Civil War.

    The "Seeds Of Deception" Universe is a collection of profiles/bios/tech files about characters, items, locations, concepts.

    At the same link: an index of SoD-related Mosaics that widen our saga further, focusing on subplot that could not fit in the main stories.

    The seeming contradictions between the various sagas (such as the Gestalt issue) have been met and solved; just wait and see!

    The "Seeds Of Deception" is the last step of two more plotlines: "There Were Giants" (set during the Lawless Times) and "Inconstant Moons" (set during Nova Prime's age).

    If you liked the story so far, please let us know and SHARE THE LOVE: let all your friends know about this project.
    If you're an artist willing to join the project, please contact us here or on DeviantArt.

    Fantastic work, thumbs up to all involved. Looking forward to seeing how this progresses! :thumb 

    EDIT: If I were to make one teeny-tiny suggestion, I'd change the colour of the 'Seeds Of Deception' text on the cover (or the Con insignia behind it) ever-so-slightly, as one visually bleeds into the other. Just for clarity's sake, like. :D

    Some "behind the scenes" notes.

    Page 1.

    More species lived and died on Cybertron, rewriting the planet: a reference to cartoon episodes "Desertion Of The Dinobots" & "Five Faces Of Darkness",but also to "Beast Machines" and G1 Marvel comics #76-80.

    "Ages Of Darkness": a reference to "The Dark Ages". Time is a cycle: "It's happened before and it will happen again."

    Cybertron has an atmosphere, and oceans. One of them is the Rust Sea.

    Page 2.

    "Orbital torus states" were mentioned for the first time in "The War Within vol. 1" by Simon Furman.

    The end of Nova Prime's age was told in: "Spotlight: Optimus Prime" and "Spotlight: Galvatron" by Simon Furman.

    As revealed in "Revelation" and "Devastation", the following characters were in the First Ark crew: Nova Prime, Cyclonus, Straxus, Jhiaxus, Galvatron and Grindcore.
    They appear on the bas-relief behind Omega Supreme; more bas-reliefs (you can see a glimpse of one of them) commemorate the other crew members.

    You can see the full image of bas-relief on Peter's page. A copy will be featured in "SoD: Shockwave/Soundwave".

    Omega Supreme, a temporary leader, makes decision to ensure the survival of his species. A tribute to Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin.

    "...a new Prime to arise" is a paraphrase of "Arise, Rodimus Prime", from TFTM86.

    Ultra Impactor is the redesigned version of the classic G1 Marvel UK character ("Target 2006").

    The ceremony is a nod to "Animated: The Arrival #" by Marty Isenberg.

    Page 3.

    "The Source" (or The Matrix) is mentioned in "The War Within vol. 1".

    Shockwave and Omega Supreme's are old rivals, just like they were supposed to be in the deleted scenes of "The Key To Vector Sigma - Part 2" (well, deleted from the script).

    The concept of Citi-State comes from Ancient Greece and was used in the Transformers universe since G1 Marvel US #1.

    In "Revelation", Shockwave is called "Jhiaxus's understudy". We changed him in his "pupil".

    Panel 2: Senterius is the balance point between Impactor (Autobot) and Shockwave (Decepticon). A metaphor for things to come...

    "Darker side": a reference to the big Star Wars tribute in page 4.

    Many Metacycles ago, Cybertron's moons were inhabited. What Nova Prime did to the Lunars is part of another of our fanprojects, "Inconstant Moons".

    In the last panel, we see Omega Supreme's current alt mode: a very large tank.

    Page 4.

    The Hall Maxima is based on a Star Wars structure, but we do not have a Senate, on Cybertron.
    The CitiStates Assembly is a government organ that flanks the Council of the Ancients and handles the more "mundane" matters of the planet's life.

    The figures on the podium: Cybertron, its continents and its moons. They can change their colors, depending on the speaker!

    Omega Supreme's differences with Nova Prime were described in "Spotlight: Optimus Prime".

    The Ancients were first SEEN in "The War Within".

    "Chosen One" and "Burden" are references to G1 Rodimus Prime ("The Burden Hardest To Bear", Seasons 3 of G1 cartoon).
