Maybe it's my age, maybe it's due to DMs who spoil their players, maybe it's going to Gen-Con and hearing one too many people declare that their umpteenth-level PCs (their fictional player characters in an rpg)were the best of the best... Either way, I drew the PC Fates b&w drawings to remind us all that for every adventurer who goes on an adventuer, another adventurer somewhere didn't make it home alive. This picture in particular was inspired by the Raggamoffyn illustration on page 100 of the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Monstrous Compensium Annual Vol. II, published in 1995. I wish I knew who drew that, because he/she deserves my applause.
