1e and 2e have a cheesy charm to them; they look like Napoleon Dynamite drew them on the back of his notebooks (notable exception: Brom’s gorgeous Dark Sun work)
4e had enough money thrown at it so that the art is largely generic and forgettable
But flip through 3.0 and 3.5 your eyes start to bleed
Here at this blog, we like to disagree with that notion, sir. The 3.5e Monster Manual set is a shining beacon of crazy-ass, freakish ghouls who wiggle their vorpal tentacles of despotic fury past your weak armor and right into your heart.
The 3.5e character sketches are fairly basic, nothing flashy, not overly-stylized like 4 and not hilariously “your tenth grade son drew this” like 1 and 2.
a.k.a. Personally I’m fine with most 3.5e artwork (except for many of Eberron’s lycanthropic shifter creeps) but looking at 1 and 2 makes my eyes want to roll for fortitude and will saves, even if they know they’ll fail.
Have a suggestion for which monster we should do next? Send a message our way! In the meantime, I’ll be looking into the most spooky Dungeons and Dragons monsters to fashionify in the spirit of Halloween (and the Mabar Festival)!
I’m sorry I haven’t updated in forever! I gave my sister a few outfits to work on (some of the requested ones) and she hasn’t done anything :< but I’ll try to keep up with at least one a week from now on.
Sorry, I just wanted to say I am in love with your blog. If you could do more male oriented attire from time to time, I would wear it. As much of it was I could.
I’ve been really sad that I haven’t been able to make much male attire - It’s very hard to find guys clothing on polyvore x___x I’m new to polyvore anyway, but people have told me you can “clip” things to polyvore, so if guys would start doing that, I would be able to do more dapper D&D dudes.
So what's your opinion of a character such as a Drow/Shade Swordmage? What do you think the adjustment level for that character would be? Would he be considered too godly to even be within a party of others? And I guarantee you can't find a pic of that can you?
A common DM argument on boards and in social gatherings is the question of the Drow not being acceptable in campaigns, especially when prestige. The fact that it’s hard to work with without turning too unreasonable in comparison to the rest of the party is why I’ve generally swayed away from letting players be Drow. I’m not exactly sure what handicaps someone would find acceptable for choosing this race, as it varies from group to group.
This blog is INCREDIBLE. I love it so much! Instafollow as soon as I happened upon it :) A few games ago I played a Lillend.. I'd love to see your take on one of them!
Thanks for checking it out :33 Lillend’s are so much fun to work with in a campaign, though I wouldn’t know where to start with how to even begin to represent all of what they’ve got going on. Hopefully my sister will take on the challenge!
You mean cleric, I assume? Or arachne, a prestige priest class? Coiled Cabalist? Hammer of Moradin? Harper Priest? Sacred Purifier? Sand Shaper? Unless you’re talking about OpenSource stuff, in which case I only do SRD.
Would it be possible to cite the edition and sourcebook for your monsters (which I LOVE, btw)? I want to throw some of these things and my weekly group, but I don't have them in the books I already own (but I'm always looking for an excuse for more).
I’ve been meaning to and have a couple of times in the tags, but started getting a little lazy ^___^” Most of what I’ve done so far can be found within the Monster Manual III of 3.5e. I’ll try to keep up with adding the sourcebook at the end.
It’s so cool to see that there’s actually an audience for people who like to play D&D and look pretty .___. I was worried I would just be holed up in this corner of the internet and drift away into the Astral Plane with all these cute outfits.
My sister has been enlisted to help in this fashionable endeavour (also our group’s sorceress and the only person who tries to keep the barbarian morally in-line) and well she does happen to be more into fashion than I am, so she’ll probably produce the more dapper looking collections.
However, when I gather collections, I’ll try to keep them affordable (for instance, she used a 450 euro jacket in creating a changeling outfit last night >__>). Side note: I also will do my best not to use real leather, fur, wool, etc. and so on (two vegans runnin’ this blog right here).
Submissions would definitely be cool, so long as you give a polyvore link, a monster or character description and which sourcebook you found it in, and use the logo and font (28pt. Adobe Caslon Pro).
We’ve got this coming up soon: Boccob (Deities and Demigods), Corellon, Ehlonna, Elderitch Giant, Pelor, Vecna, a basic scout, and more!
