Ooooooh dang! Looks like my main gaming group is about to shift from Mage: The Ascension to…Vampire: Dark Ages!! AW YEAH! We’ve got a few Mage games left before the switch, so I’m spending some time working up a character. Worry not, this doesn’t mean the Mage game is over forever. We’ll rotate back to it before too long. We tend to switch between 2 storytellers to give both guys some time to play.
Anyways, we’re working on making up new characters, so I did some doodling today. I thiiiink I’m gonna stick with this for my character’s design for now. Gavril is a young Tzimise just starting on their road to greatness. They’re currently masculine presenting, but are truly gender neutral. Though they might end up more genderfluid? We’ll see. I know they’re not overly freakish looking in the Tzimisce manner, but they’re just getting started. I wanted to start fairly tame and let them grow as the game progresses. Their design is a call back to an ooooold vampire NPC that showed up in some Mage games I ran many many years ago. Hopefully I’ll be able to get this character going somewhere fun :)
The Tzimisce are my fave clan and I’m super excited to finally get a chance to play one! I know a lot of Vampire lore, but I’ve never actually ended up playing. I tried running a Dark Ages game for my husband years ago, but I never did more than a couple of sessions that were…not super great. So I’m SO EXCITED to finally get to play some Vampire!! And I happen to think the Dark Ages setting is the most appealing for Vampire.
So yeah, I guess there will be more vampire doodles soon. Cuz I’m gonna have a LOT of new bloodsuckers to illustrate in short order ;D
