Hiya Thriends!

I saw a lot of you have entered the Mountains of Madness.
So, what do you look like? Do you have an avatar, drawing or other image that shows how you picture yourself in this adventure?

I am Vanlanthiriel, an Elf Wizard. (Simply because no one picked that combination)
This is my first RPG ever! So I have actually no idea what I look like...

I'm Nandor the Blue, a human wizard.

And this comes darn close to what I imagined:

Yeah, the grumpy wizard.

Here's your buddy Argomm, the Orf Dwarf:



Also pretty close to how my character looks like. And, yes, this one is based on my old RPG dwarven character, who's seen his share of quite a few furious battles. I found this card after I had chosen my hair colour and so on - too funny.

P.S. He really IS wearing a skull helmet. After a fight with a Roc I used the skull of that beast...

I hope you like your first RPG, Djali! It is so easy to get hooked. If you like it and want to continue, just let me know, and I'll try to help you out.

Aye. And me dwarf's got a heart of gold when it counts. He's just a little... simple. But charming, once you get past his odor. Dwarves never take a bath. Not voluntarily.

I just love clichés in a fantasy game. They may look overused, but they do open up many possibilities of interaction. And lots of fun.

I have just never heard of that
It stems from the fact that in some RPGs dwarves are not comfortable around large bodies of water. Oftentimes dwarves can't swim, plus they usually wear a fair amount of heavy gear and armor, making them sink like stones.
Take this to the maximum and you get a cliché were dwarves are mortally afraid of water in any shape or amount - so they will obviously never bathe!

Add to that that most adventuring dwarves (like any other adventurer, actually!) certainly won't enjoy the comforts of a good bath while out adventuring in the wild and you can see were that myth came from.

She has great work indeed!

And nice to know there's another Elven Wizard out there...

My MoM character is a long standing persona that I've been running in all sorts of RPGs. Her name is Beldaran Grianne (one shiny to anyone who can name the two books where I got her name from - hint, the two parts of her name are from two different series...). Usually she is Elvish, normally a Wood Elf, but in MoM I created her as a Human, as it was slightly more balanced. She would look something like this:



Currently, she also inhabits the world of Skyrim as a Bosmer (Wood Elf), specialising in thievery, sneaking and nefarious acts that usually to some good (more often than not for her...). She's not above a little blackmail here and their either. Oh, and she's an excellent smith
