Some Cool People

Lookit this dork.  Look at his smug ass grin and fabulous F-all hair.

Lloki (to be renamed, but he goes by Lloki because he gains sick amusement from it) is my “Jinn” character.  Not 100% bad, not 100% good, but 100% androgynous/can be anything you want him to be, bby.

 There’s a story to him but yup~  Enjoy this wip for now


Photographer Kilian Schönberger created Brothers Grimm Homeland

German photographer Kilian Schönberger recently has presented his new project called “Brothers Grimm’s Homeland”, where author mixed photography with illustration. Big trees, dark homes and moody environment - these are the key elements that connected these photos with legendary Brother Grimm even more. Love it!

…and my first thought is “That is way too big a group to try and run a game with.”

I’ve been in a group this big. That shit is CHAOTIC AS HELL. Doable if you’re all in sync and are okay with your character not getting a huge amount of attention, otherwise yeah this is way too many people. xD

Combat. Takes. FOREVER.

We have 7/8 in our -Exalted- campaign.


Now if you wanna talk about combat taking forever, come to my table and take a sit-down and learn some shit, my friend. You. don’t. even. know.

But guess what: We still have fun and kick ass because we all get along and have good story-telling abilities with amazing senses of humor.  Plus, you can stunt.

D&D ain’t got shit on us. (though i’ll still play the hell out of it)

About the picture: Pretty~  I like it!

And thusly, we begin on Hyori, our Exalted groups bastion of bureaucracy, and proclaimed Sailor Solar Scout.  She’s adorable and small and scary and was once an abyssal not a few months ago but that’s another story.

Also, her appearance is 7.  Foxa admires her sense of fashion and book keeping.
