I love the Crow Shaman miniature.
So I made a 4e Dungeons and Dragons character based off of it!
Whispering Crow, Hengeyokai Ranger (Scout): Level 5 character sheet
(Picture was originally Assassin’s Creed’s art that I reworked.)
Somewhere in my mid-90s dungeons and Dragons gaming I became a miniature addict. My friends and I would spend hours scouring local game stores for the perfect miniature for our player characters. We never were satisfied with buying just one mini either. This lead to creating more PCs, and miniature painting days, and returning to buy specific paints and more minis. A vicious circle of awesome nerdity!
Today, I still buy a lot of minis (I went all plastic though.) and I still have a habit of getting inspired to create PCs based on the minis I really love. I’m still looking for the perfect PC for the Goliath Mini from the Player’s Handbook Mini sets and I’m still hunting for a good Tiefling Mini (The Tiefling Necromancer is pretty close).
I’ve always been a sucker for playing Lycanthropes and I’ve done so in every edition. Some of my favorite things about 4e were the Razorclaw Shifter (Yes, I know they were in 3e Eberron but not as cool.), level-1 shape changing druids, and now themes (Pack Outcast & Dead Rat Deserter)!
Recently I bought an impressive amount of unopened Dreamblade boosters for $2 each. I came across this gem!
Right now I’m thinking about making an gothic-steampunk alchemist/artificer with the pack outcast theme to use him.
This got me thinking about how fun it is to use inspirations to create characters. I was looking at the Dreamblade Gallery and nerding-out on all the things i could do with my newly acquired cheap mini jackpot.
I often also re-imagine old PCs from other editions and games and convert them into the current edition. I’ve taken Erasmus the vampire-hunting archer from Tom Martin’s @LichKingMetal Knights of the Silver Quill/Knights of Spellforge Keep Storyhour on ENWorld into 4e but haven’t touched my favorite PC of all time, Sir Vek Mormont the Lich Cleric of Wee Jas quite yet.
So, I’m pretty sure I know what insanity drives my character generation process.
How about you?
Avangel is a servant of Shevarash, the elven deity of revenge, loss and hatred of the Drow.
Griff, Elven Ranger/Bard, Fey Beat Tamer and Montecore the Owlbear.
Fey Beast Trainer is a new theme in which you can get a medium owlbear.
I decided to make my own mini!
It was my first attempt at ever using Green Stuff but I wanted my OwlBear to be fat and spotted. Almost WoW Moonkinish.
This is the final product! (Wish the picture came out better.)
Hope you enjoy!
Human Druid (Shaman Multi-class), Pack Outcast theme -
“Inside me, there are two wolves fighting. One is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego…
… the other is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
“Which one will win?”
Looking into the little boy’s wide eyes, the man answered. “The one I feed.”
and Mr. Grumbles the Bear (animal companion).
