Benedict is the eldest of the Nine Princes and as far as I'm concern - the wisest. He's a warrior, a strategist and a tactician, probably one of the best that ever walked among Shadows. Man of few words but deadly effective in action. In our RP storyline Benedict was also a master of games; chess, cards, anything that involves strategic thinking. On Earth he was posing as Robert James Fischer and we were taking our time to play a game of chess every now and then, which was quite a challenge for a Game Master, since well, Benedict HAD to win, otherwise he'd stop being believable.... Let's just say I cheated a lot back then :]
Well, hope you like. Other Trumps here:
I'm a GM in ADRPG, running a 10 player game right now on Facebook, past 8 months now, looking to be another couple years probably.
But I wanted to say, from one Amber fanatic to another, excellent art, on ALL your Trumps.
I have colored some of the Trumps from the game book, on my page
And for Benedict, we aren't even talking new role; he's been defending Amber (and various places in Shadow) for millenia. And as a general, he has to make decisions that will decide whether his soldiers live or die. He's not one to waste his resources today, for he may need them tomorrow. And any battle takes some of your army. That's going to show.
I am looking forward to your Trump of Benedict with the mechanical arm.
Nota bene, Benedykt na karcie mial oba ramiona. Stracil ramie w "Karabinach Avalonu", i jak juz ~Tergiversatory-Proxy wspomnial, nieco ponizej lokcia. Nie mam przelozonego tekstu, ale mam to z Dziwieciu Ksiazat Amberu:
"Then there was Benedict, tall and dour, thin, thin of body, thin of face, wide of mind. He wore orange and yellow and brown and reminded me of haystacks and pumpkins and scarecrows and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. He had a long strong jaw and hazel eyes and brown hair that never curled. He stood beside a tan horse and leaned upon a lance about which was twined a rope of flowers. He seldom laughed. I liked him."
I to z Karabinow Avalonu:
"At first, I could not tell whether it was just a play of light and shadow . . . But no! He moved again and I had a clear view for a moment. He was missing his right arm, from a point just below the elbow. It was so heavily bandaged that I guessed the loss to have been quite recent."
As was stated, if Benedict had wanted the crown, not a one would have gone against him. Not just because they all respected him, but they knew they wouldn't win.
So you're going to do one with the arm he got from Tir-na Nóg'th? Woo!! (I can't remember either but I think it was taken off just below the shoulder or just above the elbow...)
