Roewyn was a character of mine from a few years ago. In the LARP I used to play, she was an elf. She trained to be a skilled archer, and dawned her father’s armor in to battle. She died by the hands of a trusted friend, which lead to the damnation of his soul. Roewyn was a hard worker and strived to bring her people back to their formal glory. She followed the traditions of her people and hunted the white stag. I asked the amazing artists from Eminence to use Roewyn as inspiration for my card. I chose Ixion as her faction, because their culture speaks to me as raw and attuned to nature. I asked for a bow as her weapon, as well as a wolf companion.

The Civilian Saviors of Iceland

Iceland’s volunteer rescue squad saves missing hikers, stranded sheep, and helpless tourists. The group’s members are well equipped, self-funded, and enjoy a near-mythical reputation among their countrymen. Nick Paumgarten joins the search, in this week’s issue.
