Interesting Pictures
« on: September 03, 2012, 06:27:07 PM »

I'm collecting pictures to help make my job of explaining landscape easier.  Basically I've run out of adjectives to append to the word swamp.  Today's topic is Ruins.  I would like to thank DeviantArt for making it easy for me to do stuff like this.





















They were immediately and absolutely recognizable as adventurers... They were hardy and dangerous, lawless, stripped of allegiance or morality, living off their wits, stealing and killing, hiring themselves out to whoever and whatever came. They were inspired by dubious virtues.  China Mieville - Perdido Street Station

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

These are relativly modern works, illustrations for the lord of rings from Russia, specifically the artist Sergey Yuhimov

I can't find a dedicated site for these - yet - everything I've found is in blogs or reblogged, kind of like this post.
