Ready for the Journey by Elderscroller Ready for the Journey by Elderscroller
This is a portrait of my current DSA (Das Schwarze Auge) RPG group.
From left to right:

Sofia, our NPC constant companion. She is a priestess of Hesinde (goddess of wisdom and magic) and a friend of:

Alfonso, wizard from Al-Anfa. He unfortunately lost his leg, but managed to get a nice ivory replacement from some merfolk we met. Still has much to learn regarding magic, because he constantly fails at the very worst moments. He carries a magic staff with an artifical magical raven on top

Yamchu, maraskan swordfighter. A master with his blade and a competent blacksmith. His blade was forged by a cyclops and has a water djinn inside

Dajin, a novadi swordfighter. Constantly babbling about his one true god Rastullah. He was struck with a curse, hence his tatoos all over his body. He desperately tries to decipher all the languages he is cursed with and their meaning.

Sverun, thorwalian pirate and captain of our ship. He recently became a priest of Efferd (god of the seas) Can be quite ill-tempered, but he is fun to have around. His shield was also forged by a cyclops and depicts the symbol of his god. The shield is completely indestructable.

Marjana, jester and hooker in one person. She was abducted by kobolds as a little child and grew up like one of them (she has a strange kind of humor and can cast spells that donīt damage, but annoy, much to her enjoyment) She is mostly cheerful, but still a bit naive about the world around her (she did not quite understand for some time, why people give her money for sex)

Nice piece.

Sounds like a pretty fun party :) I play P&P RPG myself, so there's only one question left:

Marjana, the jester, is her player male or female? By how you'd depicted her I would guess male ;)

And by the way, imho the must intimidating char ist the wizard with the ivory prosthisis....ever thought about an angry man who could burn down your house within the blink of an eye anf all you can remember is his ivory replacement? Sounds the hell scary to me!

btw: Well done, Sir!

Thanks, glad you like it :)

the wizard is not so bad, once you get to know him. Although he really does likes fire now that you mention it :)
Oh, and yes, Marjanaīs player is male. In fact...*cough* itīs me.

Pretty neat party and descriptions, I like RPG idea's like this. Not to nit-pic, just randomly curious how you would un-sheeth the dagger on Dajin's waist, if the blade fits the sheeth?

Glad you like it :) The dagger is a waqif, some sort of arabian dagger like this here: [link]
The blade doesnīt fill out the whole sheath. It is purely ornamental

Ahh I see, makes sense. Thanks for getting back to me on that little thing.

Nicht schlecht!
Das der Magier, wenn es darauf ankommt, versagt kenne ich. Das passiert allen meinen Magiebegabten (egal, ob Magier oder Elf) immer.
Irgendwie ist die Frisur des Maraskaners etwas zu einfach.

Interesting party. I have to admit that Sverun is the most intimedating from all the other party members. Nice colouring. Welldone.

Thanks for your comment :) Sverun is definitely intimitating, but he can be calmed quite easily with a bottle of rum :)
