Mine's a recoloring a minor edit of FF4's Edge. He was the star of the short lived webcomic I wrote in my younger days, which lasted a whole two strips...

<--- That's an Abyssal Hunter.
A card from Vampire:the Eternal Struggle, an animated shadow gained form and bad temper.
"Servant" of the Lasomba bloodline, the leaders of the Sabbat, who have power over shadows.

My usernamne is an old Lasombra character I created for Vampire: the Masqurade.
And I mean old in both ways, he's been around for some 800 years.
No, he wasn't a PC. He was merely a creation of badass-ness.

I wanted a cool picture of something related to my usernamne, and that card worked best for me.

Mine is from a Magic card: Ink Eyes, Servant of Oni.

I like the card, and I liked the pic when I chose it for my avatar back at WotC (before it was run by Gleemax).  I figured I'd used it there long enough to bring it over here.

<- Gung Ho, Sergeant Major USMC.  From GI Joe.

Because a little drill sergeant love was necessary @ WotC.

Honest to god, for the longest time I thought that avatar was from d20 modern and that's why he was so pissed looking.

lolz.  No, Wizards used to have a GI Joe CCG, and this is artwork taken from it.  I wonder why they still have it around...



The scan is kinda bad, but I found this on a fan site.  Oddly enough, Beachhead is the "drill instructor" for the Joe team, but Gung Ho displays the proper enthusiasm/rage necessary for the job.

He, by the way, doesn't look like a Gung-Ho. That sounds nothing like that guy looks.
Ja vuosia myöhemmin
kalvas kaksikko lattialla motellin tihrustelee,
kun sama keiju katossa leijailee.
Kyselevät: "Mikä päivä nyt on?
Tiedätkö sen?"
Kuiskaten laulaa keiju:
"Tämän elämän viimeinen."

I'm just going to refer to PI as the Gung Ho guy now. Eventually someone's going to mishear me hilariously.

My old one was Mr Sinister. A mad scientist is just not good enough, you need the evil element with a hint of masterminding. Plus he looks so damn awesome.

My replacement is a Trsikalion. I stole it off the BDSM rights flag.
Only mine is blue.

Since we're on the subject of user data... SorO, the "your" in your title should be "you're". </grammarnazi>

Ironically I'd recently changed my to
"Greel, Mindraker" or "fortitude" by Brom.
I thought this was just an awseom pic of a psion aberationist. Much cooler than
those become an illithid  feats. I did like the idea behind the card but remeber it being overpriced and undefendable. Still a cool idea though.

Mine is a 1st century Roman die that was up for auction on the Christie's website a couple of years ago.  The idea of ancient Romans using a D20 just blew my mind, and I've used it for gaming type stuff ever since.
Still came that eldritch, mocking cry - "Tekeli-li! Tekeli-li!" and at last we remembered that the demoniac Shoggoths...had no voice save the imitated accents of their bygone masters.

I had never seen it before!!!

BTW I think I'm going to steal that card from you.  0:)

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.
