One of the Ruskies in my D&D Party

    Newer Older

    There were 6 of us, which is more or less the optimum number for a good campaign. I was the only Reaganite-capitalist among the five Soviet interlopers. I think, if we broke down people by personality and skillsets, we had a warrior, a shaman, a monk, a bard, and two clerics.

    This guy, Vulva, would have been the monk. I'm not sure how to spell his name for sure, but he did respond to the word "Vulva", if you put a little "w" sound with the "v". Remember how Chekov was looking for the nuclear wessels? It was something like that. I say that Vulva was the monk of the group because his fingers and wrists were richly festooned with all sorts of Buddhist paraphernalia that he had picked up while in Tibet. He's the sort of guy that would be really intimidating if it wasn't for his kindness and zen peace.

    Behind him are the Andes on the southern tip of Argentina.

      I know someone from Russia whose name is Vladimir or Vova for short. He said he often gets reminded that his name sounds like the English word for a female part of the anatomy.

      I love your photos and I'm so glad you post them for the world to see.

      Whoah, that background is like whipped cream.

      A stunning shot -- you have an eye for personalities and you've captured his. I like yow you've subtly used your HDR to give him a perfect setting, but how you also let him come through without a lot of distraction. Wonderful.

      I used to play EQ with a guy named Vova. Maybe that's what your guy's name was too? :)
