The Heart of the Forge

I'm so incredibly stoked about my upcoming D&D campaign! I haven't played a real game since I was 12 or so and I'm playing with a great group of people too!

I've roughed out my character's backstory to help our DM get a feel for the character. His name (currently) is Arclight Anvilsmasher and he's the son of a blacksmith. He grew up learning the ways of smithing, while simultaneously learning how to weild a blade as a fighter. The catch is that his Grandmother filled his head with stories of ancient magic and epic battles, so his dream is to become a Swordmage!

The Heart of the Forge (above) is a sword that my character's father made to honour the family name and profession. Arclight's father wouldn't allow him to weild it, citing that he wasn't yet worthy. Hopefully my character will have it when our campaign begins!

Did I mention that I'm increibly stoked about playing?!

I'll probably start roughing out my character over the next few days and I might document his creation on here.

Thems fightin' woids!

Sarcificed some sleep to doodle tonight. Played around in Manga Studio and ended up with a fighter-type dude. I might take a crack at doing a background another day...

I've only ever attempted to draw my character from D&D once and that was during my first game at which point in time I hadn't really considered art as a career. I might give it another go soon, as I'm supposed to be playing in a campaign soon. I guess I'm more excited about it than I thought :)

Since I haven't played properly for years, I'm not sure what type of character I should play this time. I've been considering a really basic character to start, just so that I don't have to deal with extra stats and other nonsense. However, the image of a Dragonborn Swordmage is pretty badass, but I'm not sure if my DM would let me play one!

I figured that the urge to draw would have lessened after my doodle session, but I'm still pretty invigorated. Tomorrow might be a bit tough to get through if I can't make time to draw!
