This’s my character I designed for our online D&D session we played tonight! She’s a lightfoot Halfling monk named Paela Greengrove. She was sent away by her parents for spiritual training after they noticed she had huge anger/violence issues. It didn’t work.
Amy’s character Lindal is her older brother, who’s a rogue! He was a bad influence.
Paela freaked her party members out tonight by mercy killing some hobgoblin orphans and a crazed gnoll. But that’s just how she rolls.
According to the text of the Madrid manuscript of the “Synopsis historion,” a Byzantine chronicle written by John Skylitzes, “There were some Varangians dispersed in the Thrakesion theme for the winter. One of them coming across a woman of the region in the wilderness put the quality of her virtue to the test. When persuasion failed he resorted to violence, but she seized his Persian-type sword, struck him in the heart and promptly killed him. When the deed became known in the surrounding area, the Varangians held an assembly and crowned the woman, presenting her with all the possessions of her violator, whom they threw aside, unburied, according to the law concerning assassins.” In the image depicting these occurrences, the woman uses a spear to kill her attacker, and the other Varangian men approach her with armfuls of clothing.
hell yeah fuckin right
Here’s the art of the female miniature figures being created under the OtherWorld Mini Kickstarter. So awesome to see female figures that aren’t sexualized caricatures or evil demon vampire wenches. They all look super feminine and still tough.
[ Image: A picture of the celtic queen Boudica, a pale skin woman with long red hair strie a horse as her army closes with a Roman legion. She wears a chainmail tunic that allows her many blue tattoos to be seen. There is a sword at her him, a large round shield on her arm and a spear in her hand. ]
Boudica,Celtic warrior queen. Boudica is a completely overlooked figure in history. She is hardly mentioned in any Roman history class, save for a brief note on the ‘Boadicea Revolt’, and she was nearly forgotten and lost to time until very recently. The spelling of her name is variable, from the Roman ‘Boadicea’ to various Celtic forms such as ‘Bodika’. Her story is tragic, defiant, and brilliant. Take a few minutes to look her up, or go to your local library and pick up a book on her and the Icenii tribe. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Dude, I remember watching a documentary about her. She’s a freakin’ badass.
There’s a statue of her in a chariot in London. Because she was awesome.
[ Image: A photo of a pale skinned woman with brown hair, in a forest location. She’s dressed in plate armour. Her left hand rests on the handle of the sword at her waist, while in her right she carries a spear. ]

[ Description: A six-part gifset showing Wonder Woman and Big Barda in their classic pre-DCnU costumes kicking arse and taking names against the Female Furies from the animated movie Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. ]
[ Image: A black and red 3/4 illustration of Image/Top Cow character The Magdalena from its The Witchblade title. It shows a pale skinned woman with long red hair wearing a black bodystocking with Christian-themed armoured gauntlets, shoulder guards, hip plates, belt and knee pads; an ornate cross hangs against her chest. Over this she wears a long black hooded cloak with red lining. In her right hand is a magic spear of some sort wreathed with energy. ]
[Another image of Rougma Gua. Staninf at 3/4 position to the viewer, she is dressed in a somewhat more practical manner but no less ornate: her torso and upper arms are covered in scarlet laminated armour chased in gold that is sleek aand has a mandarin style collar. Beneath it is a long royal purple skirt slit up the side t show her bare thighs and knee-high red boots. Matching short bracers show what appears to be a swirling gold tattoo decorating her left forearm; she claps a glowing golden-bladed black-shafted spear in both hands. Her complexion is rather more tan now, her black hair a complex mass of braids that hang down her back. ]
