Behold! The Prop of Legend! The Visionary Visual Aide! The Grandest of Graphic Organizers!
Ha! Tim and I made this as a prop for the most recent Sundered! D&D session. (If you’re keeping track, this is actually quite a few steps beyond the two sessions I’ve published here. Stay tuned for context!)
As you probably can see, it’s an old-timey, fantasy-style letter with the magical images of the party upon it. At the top of the page are Rhog the Dragonborn rogue; and Zaila, our axe-wielding Goliath. Below them are the dwarf Stormbrews, N’Pallah & Brenner (shaman & warden, very earthy those two), and finally small Myrfalcon, the sword-mage wizard.
Tim prepared the envelope and paper by doing something tricksy with ovens, coffee, microwaves and a hair dryer. I know now what devilry he meddles in. I hand drew sketches of the characters, photographed my drawing because my scanner was styoopid, then used Photoshop to make the runes and arrange the character images. It was then a nail-biting task to see if the printer would consume such paper, but in the end it all worked out in a grand reveal, including sparkly crayons as a wax seal.
