Character du Jour: Cirwaen Esgarelion
She stood apart, her head cocked to one side as she listened to multiple conversations in the bazaar. Making her choice, she moved forward. “I hear you need a guide.” she broke in, “I know that part of Ptolus well. If you wish, my blade and bow are yours.”
Dirty little secret: Cirwaen doesn’t know it, but she is the last heir of Esgarel, a small conclave dedicate to the evolution of the elven race. They saw the decline of the elven peoples as something to be fought against rather than accepted placidly. They adopted the urban style of the humans and tried to push the boundaries of magic far beyond what most folks would consider sane. Now, they’re gone. Where? How? Why? That’s for Cirwaen to find out!
Notes: Here’s two firsts – a Character du Jour for our upcoming Warriors & Warlocks game, and my first “proper” render using Carrara. This is DAZ Studio’s big brother, and usually costs cold hard cash to own – but grab this month’s edition of 3D Artist magazine and the full release of version 6.2 is on the front cover. Works wonderfully it does too! More on that though, another time.
Oh, and Warriors & Warlocks rocks my world. Just so you know. I could rap geeky about all the good things in this statblock (Silent, sure-footed, trackless elves? Now THAT’s flavour! Take that, Fey Step teleporting elf silliness!) but I won’t. I’ll save that for another time too.
