Greetings, habitués of the Wandering Shop. As Mick Jagger likes to sing, "Please allow me to #introduce myself…"
I'm the #author / #illustrator of a tabletop role-playing game (#TTRPG) who enjoys posting the odd pencil #sketch, #ink outline, or full-#color #illustration that eventually became #art for the game —plus a few that never made it in.
Émigré from another instance.
Here's a pencil #sketch of the character Belle Conti. She used to be part of an all-woman blues/rock/zydeco/punk band called "Dump Your Boyfriend" that managed to bomb at both blues clubs and womyn’s music fairs, but had a loyal following among New Orleans locals. These days, she's a fearsome mage who travels throughout the southern US hunting down legendary monsters.
Time for another #throwback, Joe the human farmer, companion to: https://wandering.shop/@tenthousandworlds/103268948863333819.
Tighter; Smoother; Better looking.
This coming year will hopefully bring a mix of new #TTRPG titles, plus classic titles updated for version 1.5.
Happy New Year and Happy Gaming!
Potential #Spoilers for #Netflix's "The #Witcher"
While I'm not thrilled that the show seems to be trying to out-Grim-Dark "Game of Thrones", I do like how it handles knowledge. Short of experiencing something directly, characters depend on histories, legends, even bard songs to learn about the monsters they'll face. Unfortunately, those stories can be incomplete, wrong, or straight-up propaganda & lies. They only learn the full truth of their version of that monster in battle.
#Spoilers for #StarWars #EpisodeIX: "The Rise of #Skywalker"
I'd like to see a Star Wars series where #Lando Calrissian, Jannah, & #Finn hop around the galaxy reuniting former Stormtroopers with the families from which they were stolen —& run into plenty of trouble, of course. #Rey could even pop in once for a Jedi Ex Machina.
I'd also enjoying seeing a series set when #Poe Dameron worked as a "runner of spice" with Zorii Bliss.
...or I could just work all that into some future #TTRPG session.
Rafm’s reptiliads send you season’s greetings as they bring home their tree on a war turtle. (Bob Murch illus for ad in Dragon magazine No 80, December 1983.) https://oldschoolfrp.tumblr.com/post/189539433302/oldschoolfrp-rafms-reptiliads-send-you-seasons
She doesn't swing a sword nor cast spells, but she's the reason your fantasy heroes are going to have a hot meal when they get back to civilization after their latest dungeon crawl.
