Clariel Vesper, High Elf Magic User, and Familiars
In honor of the arrival of my copy of the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Player’s Handbook (The cover is beat up, but the inside is remarkably pristine), here’s a picture of Clariel Vesper, my AD&D Magic User.
Clariel isn’t a Loremaster (my Skype campaign group) character. I play her with a local group. The DM is largely responsible for teaching me how to paint and modify figures. Learning AD&D has been tricky for me (so many numbers!) as a native 4e player, but it’s been fun so far.
Clariel is a high elf with a bit of a scientific flavor to her, because my character goal was “create the AD&D equivalent of the Artificer.” She has two familiars, a weasel named K’sa and a newly-acquired pseudodragon. Her main interests are studying magic and setting things on fire.
Recent campaign antics:
Me: I use Firefinger to set the trapped orc on fire.
DM: Oh thank god! I was about to dock you experience points.
Me: Umm… why?
DM: Because you haven’t set anything on fire ALL EVENING!!!
