My school just started a D&D gaming society. You wouldn't believe how many closet RPG freaks one school could hold.
Anyway, I joined my first campaign as a half-orc, if you're familiar with my gallery you know I like big tough female roles (don't read too much into that)
For a while when we were developing our PCs, I was a fighter because that just seemed the natural choice, but when one of the more advanced players found out I was playing a half orc, and that with racial bonuses my strength score came to 18, he suggested I play a barbarian. That has worked out nicely. Beaulah as a barbarian turns up later on in the gallery. She's younger and a little less well groomed.
The pencil lines on her left eye are not supposed to be there, someone else has been into my sketchbook. I forgot to erase it before I scanned.
