#598: Slouching toward #600

...I'm getting there.

But I had to post this, and didn't want to add it to another post.

Ars Technica has a link to "Webb Alert" on its home page. And this is what it looks like today:

I have seen Evil Skull Woman staring back at me from that web page for several weeks now, and it's starting to get to me. That horrifying rictus, those stark cheekbones, the pulled-back hair... It reminds me, in fact, of the great-to-the-nth-power grandmother of Calandra D'Medieros.

Calandra was a character in someone else's campaign, but I secured permission to use her in my own campaign setting ("Riven Sky" is the working title) and so I've changed her background a bit. Her great-to-the-nth grandmother is the original demi-lich; she is the Lich Queen Sharandra D'Medieros, and she's about as sick, evil, and twisted as you expect a necromancer to be. Particularly one that's around 1,000 or so years old.

And that woman reminds me of her. Blech.

The sad thing is, that woman doesn't look like she's much older than 25 or 30, yet she looks like that. Man. She needs some better lighting, and makeup...and here's $20, go get yourself a bag of Big Macs, while you're at it; put some meat on your bones before you dry up and blow away, for Christ's sake.
