I like my character, but I do not know what he looks like.
Last year, I wrote about character portraits. One thing I neglected to mention is that I usually play human characters (and rarely elves), which makes finding a character portrait relatively easy. However, this time around, I am not. Try typing “air genasi” into a Google, it does not bring up a large selection. Also, adhering the spirit of the air genasi description, I scoured for any blue skinned humanoid with wild hair. This would be simpler if it I was looking for a female portrait as the selection is much better. It is more difficult to breath life into a character without knowing what he or she looks like. Some Photoshopping might be involved at this point…
Our Princes of the Apocalypse campaign begins next week and we are finalizing characters at the moment, as well as learning more about Eld, the homebrew setting created by the DM. Our characters are: air genasi ranger (me), tiefling sorcerer, wood elf (subject to change) rogue/cleric, and mountain dwarf barbarian (as played by the DM, just in case). We have a few part-time players, but they have not committed to anything yet. The reviews for Princes of the Apocalypse are overwhelmingly positive and the module is written by ex-WotC employees over at Sasquatch Game Studio.
What is your favorite part of starting a new campaign?
I will endeavour to keep updated on the campaign. Less death notifications, more victory speeches.
But… what do I know…?
