Doodling a representation of Samuel Vimes from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.
So I set up a Roll20 account because all I do all day is sit in my parent’s basement and stare blankly into the Internet, never interacting with anybody because I’m depressed.
Regardless of the deep self-deprecation, I’ve got into a game of Curse of Strahd and wound up rolling up a rogue for the team. But I didn’t want to just be a stealthy, stealie boy so I based my character’s concept off of Samuel Vimes from Discworld… and then, lacking any real identity for him, I gave my character Sam’s name and character, too, so now I’m just roleplaying as Sam Vimes, which I’m not super comfortable with.
I drew a caricature of the Sam Vimes from the cover of Snuff, to get an idea of what the character was going to look like, and then one of my compatriots found a similar character in the same art style as everyone else’s characters.
Sam Vimes is a genius character. I wish I was competent enough to come up with something half as good as Terry Pratchett’s Discworld.
