Some character portraits for @geekandsundry‘s stream of the horror game DREAD (run by Ivan van Norman), done for #ITTD this past Sunday. Never thought tabletop roleplaying games and Jenga could be combined in such a nerve-wracking way!!! Definitely makes me want to look this game up - after school ends, of course!
I know that the one off battle royals aren’t supposed to be canon to the story of vox machina. However, can we just imagine the four way fight between Vax, Keyleth, Percy, and Pike as a nightmare that Pike has randomly one night. Because with the lava and the fact it’s her friends, but not those that are closest to her like Grog or Scanlan, and her whole being evil and using extremely powerful and terrifying necrotic spells like Harm, gives off a dreamlike state. Now imagine her watching in horror as her best friends kill each other viciously and with little remorse. Seeing Percy killed by Vax and suddenly incinerated. Seeing Vax trying to kill Keyleth but then Keyleth turns it around and pushes him into lava. Then worst of all, herself. Being yanked into lava, having her armor melting and her skin burning, just barely able to climb out. Then shoving Keyleth into lava as well, grabbing her by the hair and saying “I need to kill you.” Then shoving Keyleth screaming bloody murder into the fire.
Does anyone else see Pike awakening in her bed clutching her symbol of Sarenrae with a bead of sweat rolling down her face? Just, it was so brutal and intense and she saw herself smiling at the thought at using such powerful spells, and I just want this to be something that Pike would be so disturbed by that she would cry.
Writer: @ledamemangociana Beta/Editor: none (open) Episode: 43 (Return to Vasselheim) Summary: In Vasselheim, the twins join Percy on a quick stop to replenish his black powder supplies.
It doesn’t take them long to find the building – if it can be called that – where Percy had once replenished his supply of black powder. Only when they get closer does he notice a rather large hole in the roof, given away by the haphazardly nailed boards and planks that did little to actually fix anything. Percy can’t help but feel a bit sorry for the merchant; the rain and snow isn’t easy to deal with outside, he can only imagine what it must be like to go indoors and still find no respite from the cold.
Despite this, and because he knows all too well that some part of his clothing could snag on the slightest thing inside, Percy decides to remove his coat, and a slight breeze nips at his skin. He doesn’t miss the way Vex’s eyebrows arch upward at this choice, but only because he casts around, looking for somewhere to hang the jacket on. He finally settles on Trinket, on whom he spreads his coat over. He hears the bear make a noise that Percy could swear sounded inquisitive, confused and just a little indignant. With just a small smirk his way, Percy turns to knock on the door.
