Dungeons and Dragons

Illustration update here.

As you may (or may not know) I play Dungeons and Dragons with a group of friends on Monday nights. We’re pretty late to the game really, we had a few goes of it in high school, but that was about it. We were doing a regular podcast of the episodes for a while, but conflicting schedules and “real life challenges” conspired to put an end to that. So rather than have irregular releases, we’ve been holding off to put together “seasons” of adventures, with breaks in between.

We’re currently playing the much criticised 4th edition, but not having played any other versions, we’re not really in a position to compare. It serves its purpose as a frame work to hang our stupidity and ridiculousness on, like an jade carved mannequin, or diamond encrusted coat hanger. The rules are loose, and fast, and I get the impression that there’s only one of us at the table who really understands them. (and that’s not me.)

For the first time ever, I’m giving you the opportunity to delve inside our magical den of mystery and see the inner workings of our games. We play around a white board table, where we render in game graphics on the fly. That’s right, this is no prerender stuff, hoodwinking you in to buying the finished game. THIS IS AS REAL AS IT GETS!

You can see a bunch of drawings I’ve done during our sessions right here. Please note however, that our games tend to get very racy and a lot of these illustrations are NSFW. If you’re at work, just wait until you get home to look at them, they’ll still be there. But I bet that you’ll be tempted by its scandalous content.

d&d: bugbear

bugbears
Bugbear illustration for our Dungeons and Dragons campaign. They’re like hairy goblins right? Which are like reptiles right? Right?
I don’t really get how all this stuff works. I might do an Owlbear next.

airship disaster

Posted by campbell November 17th, 2010


Tonight, more dungeoneering!
We last left our heroes battling a giant fanged platypus. Crabs stuck in the mud, Tiefling 3000 in belly of the beast, fighting his way out, Lamb drowning under the creatures crushing weight and Haroldo attempting to cast spells on it.

Above is an illustration of the airship crash that occurred last episode.

mongrel men

Posted by campbell November 3rd, 2010

This is an illustration I did a while ago but for some reason never got around to putting online. These are two characters that appeared in the Dungeons and Dragons campaign I wrote. They are mongrel men (well, one is a lady, “mongrel people” perhaps) who live in a caravan in the outskirts of Mont Azul. They herd away flocks of wild insects that threaten the local vineyards.

The mongrel men have been a particular favorite of my friends and I since we first flipped through an old monster manual. Awful, mutated bastard children of interbreeding races, they are like street dogs running around, hiding in the shadows and picking at scraps. In our mind, they always seem to have a lobster claw, tatty clothes and warty skin.

I can’t seem to find much reference to them on the internet, which is odd considering how awesome they are.

Lady and Crabs

Posted by campbell August 2nd, 2010


These are two characters that feature in our regular (?) Dungeons and Dragons games. Lady Antoinette Estella Durack and Crabs Key Dinfer.

Lady Durack is played by James Pontifex and has been completely useless so far in this campaign (feel free to seek conformation from our recorded sessions). Her highlight so far has undoubtedly been extinguishing a camp fire with a water bladder attached to an arrow during a night time raid. The merit of this action was fiercely debated by the party for at least ten minutes before it was performed. She is sitting out the current adventure as James is now Dungeon mastering.

Crabs on the other hand is probably our most useful party member. Fred plays the character hard and fast and his understanding of the game rules (which everyone else sorely lacks) enables him to make some pretty crafty tactical decisions. The character is a halfling thief who, in his defining moment did a triple flip and chopped the head off a demonic overlord. He is currently battling a debilitating venereal disease.
