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.





















One can cure oneself of the not un- formation by memorizing this sentence: A not unblack dog was chasing a not unsmall rabbit across a not ungreen field.  Orwell

(13:23:49) (Chinchillas): See? You can write like an 4$$h013 when you're not writing like a pompous 4$$h013.

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.
