Dwarf adventurer seeking permission to travel in the lands of King Dáin for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"To most denizens of the Lonely Mountain, taking part in the making of future splendours is enough to fill their life with purpose. To some, the memory of even greater halls still lost to the enemy fills their heart with longing and bitterness, driving out any interest in the concerns of other folks. These restless spirits become emissaries and adventurers, and their wandering carries the name of Erebor to many foreign realms."

Artrage, Painter, PS.

Well done! With King Dain having a red axe and everything! I was, however, under the impression that Orcrist was visible on the Tomb as it would alert the Dwarves if ever the mountain was under attack (from orcs at least). Could be wrong though.

Fantastic work! This definitely tells a story and creates a sense of adventure and ancient places and legends and memory. I love the Dwarves' designs but also the architecture around and behind him.

They definitely got the right artist for the job. Your style is gritty but slightly homely, (not quite the word I want, but anyway...) and it really lends itself to the subject matter. You are good at making it look like everything has been there for a long time. The characters really seem to belong in thier world, too.
