Comments on 2014-12-08 Character Generator with Random Pictures

Wohoo, lots more faces added. My wife is suspecting me to be obsessive compulsive about adding more faces, but I keep thinking, just one more face!! She says, “you do realize that all you will ever need are at most twenty men and twenty women, right?” But I keep thinking: 287– 289 men and 177– 205 women! Yay! :) 🐒

Adding the photos that you did definitely started me imagining some sort of early 20th century setting in which certain chosen ones of varied backgrounds (PCs) suddenly come to identify with some vaguely theosophical hidden soul and realize they are an “elf” or a “halfling” or a “thief” or whatever and must follow the pull of their own and other souls to manifest their soul’s urges in life, regardless of society’s censure and punishment. Kind of an unhappy, alienated setting.

I’m surprised how reading the class makes me reinterpret the picture and has me nodding my head. Yeah, that would be a cool dwarf. This looks like a halfling.
