Bah! I'll have you know, that for every single thing I complete on that list, two or three new projects almost always take its place.

Wait, this is news -- you've actually completed something on your list?!?

Well, obviously that was the joke... being the "Worlds sexiest Gamer" is sort of like being the smartest person in Louisiana.

<Mark hoping there is no-one here from there>

Anyway, if Sage has completed something, why wasn't it on CNN?

It only made the local news. Sorry.

There was a parade through the streets of Perth too. With balloons and everything.

Sadly, Sage missed the parade -- it was on his to-do list!

Thank you so much for dropping the polymorph spell that's been concealing me, Alaundo. I feel much better now.

Hmmm. Not surprisingly, all this recent avatar chatter has got me thinking about changing mine once again.

There's a shocker!

Go back to the kender -- that's my fave of the hundreds many you've used.

You know, I think a great picture for you would be from the cover of Realms of Mystery. I always liked that picture of a sage poring over ancient tomes looking for information. Perhaps you could use that?

That's not a bad idea.

I can't recall whether it's included as part of the avatar gallery here at Candlekeep though.

I'll keep an eye out on Google for you, should it not be contained herein.

How about the Jeff Easley cover-art from 1e's Unearthed Arcana?

He has a look of surprise... perhaps he has accidently finished something.

Heh. I had that image as my avatar on another forum I once frequented.

I'm not sure I'd like it as much for Candlekeep though.

I've actually found an avatar that looks more like Ashe than the one I use here.

Of course, it's over on the Paizo boards... (Avatar)

I actually DO know everything. I just have a very poor index of my knowledge.

I have a Todd Lockwood art work that I'm fond of, Im wandering if it can be used for my avatar? Also, is it possible to change my member name? Something that does'nt give away my true name and home town to some a little more Realmsian perhaps?

Isn't that the avatar that Alaundos uses?

Well, if anyone finds a pic that want to use, I can 'Avatar-it-up' for you.

How about the pic of that Magister on the cover of The Magister? Not sure if your the "frenzied Mystra-worshipper with hair billowing in unseen winds" type, but the guy does look kinda cool.

BTW, Sage (or whoever) - feel free to add that last one I made to CK's; it may not be for you, but someone may want it.

For those who wish to show their own individual portrait ("avatar")

The image must be in the same fantasy portrait style as the current avatars available and as a 64x64 JPEG. You may also state whether you wish your avatar to be exclusive to you or if you would like to share it and make it available for selection.

You must send your avatar to either myself or the Candlekeep Webmaster using the email address to which your member name is registered and also state the member name to which the avatar belongs.




I was wandering if this process still applies? Markustay "The Mapper Most Magnificent" has done a fantastic job in creating an avatar size pic for me, and if it's possible i'd like to make use of it.

Yes, it still applies. Simply follow the directives Alaundo has outlined in that particular post, and we'll take it from there.
