When I play in a campaign, I often use it as an excuse to get creative with character props and session logs. One instance in particular where I spent a lot of time on this was when Scott (husband of Janica, mentioned in D is for Dice) ran a campaign called En Arcadia Est, also known as Saving Arcadia. It was a d20 Modern game we played in May through August 2006.
The game was set in the 1920s. I played [Francis] Drake Corrigan, an artist and practitioner of magic who casts spells by drawing icons on his palm. He is summoned from Paris to the city of Arcadia, ostensibly to report on what’s he’s done with scholarship money received from the Zenith Foundation. At the Zenith Building, he meets Fang Huo Long, a gorgeous Asian woman, and are tasked with investigating the murders in the wealthy Moth family. If you want to read more, I created an entire adventure log (Link to first adventure), illustrated with drawings and internet images appropriate to the tale.
Here are my original character drawings of Drake Corrigan and Fang Huo Long, as well as two characters from later adventures, the mysterious Helen and the equally-mysterious Rachel Strange.
