Berra, der einzig wahre Nekromant
Eine kleine Ballade von Pôlberra, dem einzig wahren Nekromanten
Die fleckige Kapuze im Gesicht,
mit Augenringen bis zum Schlüsselbein
und auch nicht immer ganz im Gleichgewicht
(das kommt vom Rauschkraut und vom Boronwein)
– so steht er da, der einzig wahre Nekromant!
Er führte Boron selber an der Nas' herum,
und dass er stets zu seinen Taten stand,
nahm ihm sogar die eig'ne Gilde krumm.
Berra war den Boronsdienern nicht geneigt,
die taten ihm gar schlimme Dinge an.
Dafür hat er dem verhüllten Pack gezeigt,
wie schon ein einz'ger Mann sie ärgern kann.
Doch nie hat er die Leute umgebracht,
wenn er den Mord nicht irgendwie vertretbar fand,
und wer euch das nicht glaubt, dem sagt: So macht
das der einzig wahre Nekromant.
Und als er unser Herr Magister war
mit dem Gesicht voll Narben kreuz und quer
und mit seinem höllenfeuerroten Haar,
da fiel uns uns uns're Wissenschaft nicht schwer.
Da waren wir die Herren in der Stadt
und räumten jede Nacht die frischen Gräber aus,

Helpful Black Box
A young woman named Agathe loved making art, and practiced sculpting all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical harps, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Athens, and a portrait of Pompey the Great that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby black box for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in sculpting to create the most beautiful deviation depicting demon saddels nursing anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, black box!"

Searching for Philological Commentaries
My great-grandfather used to tell me, "Don't chase after philological commentaries because you'll only end up with a sausage in your eyebrow." I never quite understood his advice until one Christmas, I was gardening with my best friend Shelagh. All of a sudden, we found an underground tunnel! It was radiating and spooky sounds came from deep within. Shelagh saw something interesting inside, jumped in, and I never saw her again. Great-granddaddy was right!

I'll Talk to the Dead for You
First picture after a long, long while.

One of the protagonists of my current books. He's a young necromancer and scientist, working on his doctoral thesis about communication with the deceased. He never thought that the police could be interestend in this kind of science ...
Finally, I could buy a new scanner. I'm really happy! Now I just need some time for drawing ... didn't draw anything meanwhile because I couldn't scan it ...

Geez, hadn't realized I forgot to Fave you some time ago--all those great faces I've missed! Luckily, it's not too late to see 'em now, innit.

Your other art is great too, but in my opinion those very human and individual faces are your absolute BEST!

My favorite may still be your Lovely Heroine; about a year ago I was trying to convey the personality of a shrewd and pragmatic river captain to my fantasy gamers, and realize all I had to do was show them your picture. Worked perfectly, but I really shoulda asked you first.

I was just thinking about that this morning because they're going to go talk to the captain again in tonight's game, so I wanted to do two things first: look at all your great art again, and ask (as I should have in the first place, if I'd had time to think about it) if it's okay to use your Heroine pic for the purpose. Entirely privately around a table of adult gamers, that is; nothing public/published/posted.

In case you're curious, this was my summary of the character when our heroes were investigating the captains and riverboat pilots of Spar over a case of smuggling-to-orcs-and-bandits:

"Brandywine of Spar is Captain of the Steady, Shadowmere's primary liquor freighter, carrrying everything from barrels of ale to the finest apple brandy. She normally employs only her extended family as crew and stevedores, but occasionally hires local help for particular tasks.

"She is shrewd and cynical, but patient with anyone who is no threat to her family or her business. Her reputation as a merchant is impeccable, though it's rumored she may be behind a few competitors' misfortunes.

"She's had six children by different lovers, but says at 52 that she's glad to be done with carrying body cargo. She now has at least ten grandchildren between the ages of one and twenty-three, but outsiders have trouble telling them apart from various nieces, nephews, and kin-by-marriage."

So, please let me know if I should stop using your pic immediately.

Both enthusiastic and apologetic,

Hello Nonie, I just saw your message. Thank you for so many nice words! I am glad to hear that you like my pictures! :D
It's okay to use them in any private context, so just keep using the Heroine!

Your Heroine Brandywine sounds really "lovely", too. ;) Nice to hear of her.

Have a good evening.

Oh, I like so much your "Virtus vere Roma", expecially Cicero brothers cameo. Do you think you'll continue it in the future? *_* Say yesssssssss!
Xzaren Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
Yes, and I always wanted to. :) I don't really know why I didn't much VVR lately ...
Thanks for your nice comments! I really appreciate them! :)
GreenRevan19 Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
You're welcome :) .
Sorry, I'm curious: have you a degree in classical studies? Or it's just an hobby, reading and studying classical literature?
Xzaren Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
I have indeed a degree, but I'm always trying to improve. :) I love classical literature!

Oki, I think I love you,because you love Xzar and Montaron. My fave game when I was a kid was BG and my fave characters were those 2. I can't believe I'm here all those years later, 26 years old, still in love with em both! They don't make characters like that anymore! Love your latest deviation! Please please please keep up the good work. youve inspired me to do some xzar/monty art thanks!
