Over at Grognardia today, James looks at some early pre-generated characters in old-school D&D products:
I've always had a soft spot for Borg, primarily because of the way he's presented – as if written on a sheet of ruled paper of the sort every child uses in school (though his player's penmanship is far better than that of almost any child I ever knew). It's a reminder that character sheets, while useful, are unnecessary for a game that originally proclaimed itself "playable with paper and pencil and miniature figures."
That bit reminded me of this piece I did for Adventure Anthology: Blood earlier this year:
Poor old Warninglid there is a legitimate LotFP character, but he wasn't run through an adventure, so his death is simulated. Er, more so than any role-playing character, I mean.

This is what happens when you let the editor/publisher make irresponsible puns.
Edit: The book is in fact called Huguenauts, and I kept getting the spelling wrong. Oops.

There is a group on Facebook that collects pictures of skeletal astronauts. I was under the impression is was a group for artists to share their pictures of skeletal astronauts, but it turns out it's more general than that. Anyway, I drew this.
It was a bit of a struggle and I think you can tell; the lines are more wobbly than normal and everything is a bit wonky in general, but I was starting to get the hang of it towards the end and it was a fun process.
