Here’s my latest drawing. It’s a Warforged Battlemind named Titan. I drew it as another part of limeskeleton7 ’s surprise gifts for his D&D Dark Sun session that he runs in the summer. This is a depiction of one of the player’s characters. Next, I’ll be drawing the other three, which consist of a pixie, gnome, and I forgot what the third was. limeskeleton7 gets the descriptions from his players and I’ve been drawing them. once I’m done drawing them all, I’ll start coloring the pictures next week!

My first ever character, Sixteen. He’s a Warforged Battlemind with kick-ass armblades.

Sixteen suffered from the same problem I think most first-characters do: He didn’t have much of a personality. Luckily, I could put it down to him being, well, a robot. He also died in Tomb of Horrors, but it’s cool; he got better.

Warforged are awesome.

I had a dream of a monster - a terrible gnoll! He could teleport himself instantly, a truly frightening power! I was scared at first, but the dream was not a nightmare. I think, perhaps, he might have been a hero? I hope so. I wish him luck, wherever he might be now.

Homebrewing a class

Really thinking about homebrewing a psychic warrior/battlemind class for 5E. 

All the ones that I have seen online just don’t quite hit it the way that I feel it should be done. I’ve seen one that was close but in my mind was way overpowered. 

Does anyone have any intrest in this sort of thing? I would use the Paladin as my base to work from but it probably wouldn’t even operate the same by the end of it.
