Archive: Blogger Challenge: Fantasy Fellowship (Part One)

Note: This is an old post copied over from my previous blog. The original post date was 09/09/2015 and I am moving it back over here for posterity and post count reasons! 😀

Have you ever found something in Second Life that sent you right over the edge of “like” and straight into “love?” Was it a hairdo? A new store? A stylist that just opened your mind to a hundred new possibilities?

For me, I like being inspired. I look for inspiration anywhere and everywhere and if I’m not cooking up at least a few ideas for a blog (which I may or may not get around to writing *sadface*), then I feel like I’m doing something wrong. For me, it was one of Luna Jubilee’s poses (!bang) during this round of We ❤ RP that gave me the idea for something a bit different from my usual but, if you know me at all, right in line with my fantasy roots. And the fact that I’ve been feeling more romantic of late. Because reasons. 😀

Mage and Ranger 1 2048

Pretty dreamy, right?

As a writer and a long-time role player, I have a special place in my heart for fantasy characters and the epic feelings they tend to engender. I enjoy the concept of men and women working and fighting together, overcoming obstacles, and doing their level best to win the day. And if there’s a love interest to drag me in even deeper? Well, that’s a recipe for an amazing story, isn’t it?

The Concept:

So imagine your basic adventuring group; your fighter and your healer, your wizard and rogue and ranger. Paladin, bard, barbarian or monk (and yes, I played a LOT of Dungeons and Dragons back in the day). Take these basic character archetypes and imagine what they might look like in Second Life, who and what they’d wear and how you’d put it all together. Where you’d shoot the pictures and what the theme of your post might be. Is it an action scene? A romance, like in the picture posted above?

And Then….

And then you write your post! Post the pictures, talk about the character(s) you’ve created and what they’re up to in this particular scene, how they came together, and whatever else comes to mind! Roll credits (and don’t forget your pose makers). End scene!

For this particular post I was fortunate enough to talk my man Lucky into posing with me and he was very good-natured when I suggested adding a bit of a beefcake element to his original concept of playing Human Ranger to my Elven Wizard. To make a more convincing narrative, of course. Yep.

Human Ranger (Lucky): 
The ranger is a quintessential woodsman and tracker, a master of doing more with less, and in this case he does it with style and a complete disregard for inclement weather. >.> Clad in heavy leather breeches, boots, and gloves ([HL]) and carrying a fiercely powerful bow and quiver ([EZ]), only the piercings in his face (+ROZOREGALIA+) hint that he’s had any sort of life beyond the borders of the birchwood forest (Skye).

Elven Wizard (Portia): 
Never one to shy away from conflict, the elven wizard brings an impressive array of magical abilities to the Fantasy Fellowship. With a magical staff (=Zenith=) to hurl offensive magic at her enemies and a dagger ([The Forge]) for utility and close-quarters fighting, her gear is balanced by bracers and greaves (!LR Weapons – totally scripted for combat as well!), a chain collar and handguards ([The Forge], *May’s Soul*) and a gorgeous layered leather bodysuit (Moon Elixir) that’s reinforced, no doubt, with magic as much as metal. Her golden earrings (.aisling.) and pauldrons (Kahli Designs) are second only to a stunning crystal circlet (~*S.E.*~) in brilliance.

Together, the Ranger and the Wizard will face a number of trials and tribulations, obstacles and enemies great and small. Neither of them, however, could ever guess that the greatest danger to their comfortable way of life would be their partner in ….

The Fantasy Fellowship.
