I recently compiled a list of my characters' tags on Tumblr, and thought I might share them here as well in case some of you are interested. My blog contains drawings, doodles, backstory snippets, and other info that can't be found on this site, so if you'd like to know more about my characters below are some tags you might want to take a look at (stuff will appear in the order of newest to oldest). For starters, here are the direct links to my TES characters' tags:

The rest of the tags for other game characters (My character tags :pointr: Name) and some other Tumblr stuff can be found here

I snatched this from :iconrosyan: since it looked like fun :D

1. What does your Deviantart name mean and why?
Isriana was actually a character in one of my original fantasy stories I used to write long time ago. An auburn-haired warrior/priestess, in fact. Seven years ago (good god, I can’t believe it has been for so long) I was looking for a username for a new DeviantART account and tried a few different alternatives, all of which turned out to be already taken. So I started going through fantasy character names I had created, and Isriana was my favorite out of the options available, so I went for it. I didn’t think much of it at the time, but for some reason it stuck - now I couldn’t even think of changing it.

2. What fandom were you obsessed with when you joined and what are you into now?
Neverwinter Nights 2. :D Is till love the game, but nowadays The Elder Scrolls stuff has taken over my gallery.
