Brianna's Avatar

Brianna ws my first character on RDInn. She is a red-haired Amazon, human, that carries twin longswords, "Thugnder" and "Lightning". She is a fierce warrioress. I chose my avatar because the picture was so appropriate for my character.

My hope is one day we will be able to change pictures for each game, so that I could shoose appropriate avatars for each different character..

I chose my avatar 'cause it was the closest I could find to look like DarkAutumn. Not to mention that at the time DarkAutumn was kinda Queen Mayhem, Queen of the Amazons. It was so silly. I can't even remember the names everyone had...Elendriel, Rae, and a few others were part of the Amazon clan.

Anyway, I found this pic, and another one. This one represents Princess Mayhem. I have another that represents her when she became Queen Mayhem.

At any rate, I've submitted another pic which a friend drew for me that is unique and solely made for DarkAutumn. If it ever gets approved, then I will use that as my new and improved, (and permanent) Avatar. Until then, This one will do.

Well I actually picked out this avatar before I started any games... so it isn't because she looks like a char I play. And actually Merideth is the name of the main character I used to play on Mylanders before it died (and I've been kind of grateful since I found this that it has never been resurrected fully), so I've been Meri for years...
The reason I picked out this Avatar is because I think she has a really cute butt, her face was covered to add mystery and the colors/art style were so different from others.
I've found this useful because when I scroll down threads I can easily pick out when I posted last
So there it is, she has a cute butt... and hell so do I.

What Can I Say

It's a Dragon. I could not find a female avatar to fit my first RDInn personna. Then, as I got into other games I just sort of stuck with it, anyway I could not change it for each of the games I was in.

I know that Catt was mumbling something about getting the sit programmed so that we can select different avatars for each game, but until then (hopefully soon) I will use this one. BECAUSE: One it is easy to see when looking down the posts. Two it fits me. Three, because I liked it.

So There.

I don't have a name, you can call me V

I chose to use the V for Vendetta mask as I loved the graphic novel and the characters within - It is one of the most influential novels of my life.

I agree with Alacrity...Vader has been a constant element and overriding influence in my life. My first major happy memory is of going to the opening of the original SW in '77, and have been to opening night of all 6, and all were great times, not just for the movies themselves, but for the companionship and for the light it brought to dark times in my life. Without going into sordid detail, let's just say my pic could be in the dictionary entry for 'dysfunctional'. Corny it may be, but Star Wars has always had happy connotations to offset the bad ones.

And I've always identified with Vader; his character shows that even the most begotten can be redeemed, and that's always been important to me.

It's nice to know that no matter what darkness there has been, the light can be found.

Deep thought done.

A few of my characters in different games offline have had a resemblance to mine; plus, that's what "I" looked like in IC chat for the longest time. That's about the breadth of it.

I love Hellboy.

Plus, Abe Sapien is exquisite in his eccentricity.

...because my traditional av is naked, and that doesn't go around here.

If you care, I generally use Wings of Reflection by Louis Royo. If you're going to leave 10,000 of some pic on a forum, it should at least be one you want to look at, right?

As some of you know I reformed myself a wile ago, I was TheRealStGeorge and had a image of St. G but that would not do now.

I wanted one that reflected both my darker side and the darker side of my character, and so I decided I wanted a drow, specifically a drow sorcerer. I found one.
