Yes, my friends, I have officially joined the ranks of fantasy uber-nerd-dom. I am 23, and I'm in a D&D gaming group. Woot! Okay, so this is Arianna, one of my girlfriend Katie's characters. About the time she left our party, Arianna was a 5th-level Elven Druid/Wizard. She comes from a large and respectable Elven family in the High Forest, the youngest of her many siblings, and adventures (as you might have guessed) in order to protect the natural innocence of the wilderness, and is pictured here with her wolf companion Lola and her raven familiar Poe. Her younger cousin, Amara, took over after family troubles required Arianna's return home. Incidentally, Amara's raven familiar is named Lenore. Yes, there's far, FAR too much irony in our party's animal-naming conventions. Anyway, the title comes from one of Arianna's favorite spells, the one she's getting ready to use here. I may complete a similar character study for each of the other regular party members. Stay tuned.
