Honestly, I can't remember, though it is used throughout the internet. No disrespect meant Sage......

Oh. I'm not aware of any other place. However, I have another picture ready should anything go wrong with the first one.

Alaundo, did you receive the custom avatar I sent over e-mail? I'm sorry my e-mail is not working correctly, so you can't send a reply, but please tell me if anything is wrong with the picture in this post, or if it is acceptable.

Many thanks.

Long gone are my days of creeping in the shadows and hiding in wait. Those means are for beings of a cowardly bent. We Bladesingers are risen above such dribble. So saying, it is boldly into the fray I shall go; if I should come to meet my maker, I will at least have done so with a sense of pride and dignity that your ilk will never truly understand.

I can only do that in the Candlekeep Inn area. I am the doorman, so I'm probably not going to modify any posts. I'll merely stand in the background, and gossip with the patrons......

Now, back on topic, Sage, how's my avatar coming???

Sorry Shadowlord, but I haven't had time to go over your avatar yet. I've been busy at the uni library these last two days, getting together some notes for my current assignment. I'll try and get to it tomorrow...

Okay Shadowlord, I've smoothed over the image using my personal program, and trimmed the edges a little in order to decrease the distortion of the image when re-sizing became necessary. I'll have it ready to send back to you tomorrow.

Well met Alaundo,

I too am posting here in regards to see if you received my inquiry of a custom avatar. Please let me know if it is acceptable and correctly porportioned.

Thank you kindly.

Live spelled backwards is evil. Doesn't that mean that there is a measure of evil in everyone? Perhaps it was the god's hidden joke, but why are you scoffing that I admit I'm evil? At least I'm not slaughtering innocents and saying it's good and right. No matter how you look at it, it's still murder and therefore evil. Deep down, you are no better than I am. The only difference is that I may lie to others, but not to myself! ~Xull'rae Zauviir

You are most gracious Alaundo, thank you!

It is nice to see her face once more.

She is indeed an interesting Drow to be certain. The pic isn't from anywhere, (t least I hope it's not) I had it commissioned in June of 2003 and respectively paid a fee for it.

The artist is still backlogged to this day from everyone wanting a portrait that I feel bad for her because I restarted the trend.

I will not drift off the subject of this thread, so I will just thank you for liking my avatar!

Hrmph, I've sent a custom Avatar commission from the incorrect e-mail address (have too many to keep track of anymore ). I'm going to resubmit it from the proper e-mail address now, please let me know if there are any problems, and I'll do my best to correct them.

"You scoff at the notion of a drow Bladesinger? My, my. How very foolish of you to believe that the Ilythiiri did not possess the secrets of the Bladesong in ages long past. A select few of us have carried a twisted rendition of the 'Song down through the generations. Now, bearing that in mind, will you wipe that ridiculous look of incredulity from your face, or must the keen edge of my blade do it for you?"

They can drool all they like but his black heart belongs to Xull'rae.

Though to be honest, game wise Xull'rae finds his attraction quite irritating, as drow are not known to have only one partner. But Vesz'aun has it in his head, only HE can have Xull'rae and no other male. If they try, a battle ensues. I think the point is obvious.

Nice to see your portrait up my dear!

Ahhhh...Thank ye kindly, Alaundo, much appreciated!

And no, Bookwyrm, the drow females won't ogle over him for very long, as good ol' Vesz'aun won't give them the time of day (at least not when the object of his obsession -- Xull'rae -- is around ), and his irritating personality is a very big turnoff to boot, outweighing those dashing good looks by a longshot

Thank you as well, "dearest" Xull'rae
