A group of us at work started playing D&D 4E earlier this year. We started out with pre-written adventures with Sean as DM. After a while Sean decided to create his own world (as he does) for us to start new characters in, with more chance for character development.
I really got into making a character. Not just the stats, but a history and image. He's goes by the name Morituri (although the others have appropriately been calling him 'The Shadow') and he's an Assassin. I can't reveal his history yet, as it is still a mystery to the other characters in our campaign. I can reveal aesthetics though!
I had fun drawing this. Have to point out that I cheated and used some existing D&D art as a base. It was just too perfect for my character.
And here's the figure I found and painted for him. It's from the Malifaux range.
We've just reached level 7 now, so it's time to start thinking about Paragon paths, and I've got some good ideas. I do enjoy having a secretive character. What is his real name? Why does he cover his face and use disguises? What was his life like before? What's with the purple sash around his thigh? What race is he?! All things the other characters will have to find out.
