What does your Avatar say about you??

My user name comes from a elven fighter LARP character, so I chose an avatar that resemble me the most. My ears where shorter and my hair blonder, but it was otherwise close enough.

My RL hair is now much shorter and my beard much longer, but that's who Laurefindel will always look like.

Scarab Sages

Arazyr was the name of a background character (one might say "NPC") in a "story" (more like solo campaign) I was writing in my homebrew world. He took one of the pieces of the MacGuffin and hid it away, and was never seen again. Anyway, I adopted it as my general online handle, because it was basically a random string of letters and I figured nobody else would ever use it. But, when I signed up here, going with the "old wizard" aspect of the original character seemed appropriate.

Although, in high school there was another kid who always called me "grandpa" for some reason. He said I looked like an old man. Never quite understood that...

Ha! It's almost like your new portrait is the old one's demonic child.

My avatar looks just like me DMing.

It's amazing to me how easy it is to confuse who's talking, by looking at the avatar instead of the name. For example, it's hard for me to accept that KaiserDM isn't TOZ, Successful Troll isn't F2K, and that zylphryx isn't the infamous Samuel Weiss.

Whenever someone new swipes my avatar, I feel like I have to run around clarifying that this person isn't me. Seems like, if you've been using an avatar consistently for several years and are still active, it should be temporarily "retired" from the options!

Yeah! Otherwise stuff like this happens.

Nope, I am definitely not Samuel Weiss (and his posts actually had me consider changing the avatar back then).

Though I know exactly what you mean. I get a kick out of when one of the other 100 or so other folks using this avatar posts in the same thread as I do. It's like an illithid invasion.

Not so much invasion as, say, occupation, y'see?

I've had this avatar since shortly after it was first uploaded. I chose it because to represent the character this alias takes it's name from, I recolored Damiel.

I'm a fan of planar stuff, high-CR things, summoning/conjuration, and gigantic extraplanar monstrosities of legend. I also have a fondness for the Oliphaunt in particular on top of that.

Quote:

The leaders of Abyssal hordes and queens of Abyssal nations, the dreaded mariliths serve demon lords as governesses, advisors, and even lovers, yet their brilliance as tacticians makes them most sought after as generals and commanders of armies. The most powerful mariliths serve no one, and instead command ravenous fiendish legions.

A marilith is 6 to 9 feet tall and measures 20 feet from head to tail tip. It weighs 4,000 pounds. Only the most arrogant and proud evil souls, typically those of cruel kings, sadistic generals, and exceptionally violent warlords, can trigger the manifestation of a marilith.

The question isn't why I chose the marilith avatar, the question is why didn't any of you? Because you can't beat this.

Also, Hama, you're a gnoll, just a fyi.

I must say there is a certain fondness to it. And lashings, of course. Reminds me of my mother, really. Probably because of the lashings. I miss the old home sometimes.


I got mine because I didn't see anyone on the forums I typically peruse who has it. That, and I usually put yellow in my avatars, so it fit.

I get confused when someone new comes and uses an avatar that I associated with someone else who has been using it for years. Takes me a not in-character answer to realize that I should read the name.

The board game uses a token with pretty much that avatar on it to represent the wildlings. I figure that was why.

i love it when you get two people with the same avatar and completely different view points posting right after another or when they start arguing with each other. it makes me want to say "wait! which one of you is the Real Bender?"

Admittedly, I managed to find a few of those - like a desiccated undead child with a doll, a rather attractive (if seemingly sleepy-eyed) couatl, and a carrionette (the "Evil Pinocchio" monster from a RAVENLOFT adventure; scary enough for Stephen Moffet to rip off for a Dr. Who villain, actually).

I liked the undead child with a doll the best.

New avatars are in! Lets see how many people change theirs.

In my case, it's all about the sci-fantasy. Viva la Magitek!

I don't see the point.


I like griffons.

My others have been a bit more sly and trollish. You can do quite a lot with them, and some people really get agitated very quick if you pair a specific comment with a certain smiling or jocular avatar.

But that's none of my business.

I took this one because my evil side now is properly defined!

Mine says "I wanted an image of a female with short dark hair, and was really glad to see they had uploaded my favourite such from UC". I've used the name Scythia in lots of games, and have a look in mind that goes with the name.

Amusingly, in real life I have hair that's long enough that people often ask how many years it took to grow.


Mine says that I have yet to find a pic that is worthy enough for a character that I've had for..... Nine bloody Hells, has it been 20 years already? Wow, lots of memories there. Looks like I may have procrastinated enough on the pic though.

I really do like Tieflings, though, and I also tend to favor magick-y classes.

I like crows. Crows are smart. They use tools.

Krusk.

I find the ponderous, the ridiculous, and the silly to be charming. Krusk embodies all of that with his strange facial expressions, disproportionate form, and often-times hilarious art.

I mean look at the guy:
Just look at the way he tied that dagger to his arm.
Wow.

He represents everything I like about what your fantasy character can be. I rarely play handsome men. To me, that is a boring. I'd rather be some comically huge dude trying to fit in with all the shorties.
