For instance! Here we have something I pulled off the LJ feed for Suvudu (although it's already been taken down from the main corporate site):
See, the original post on Suvudu was written as an amusing Dear John letter from this guy's self-respect, but I think that misses the point. This is a guy who's micro-marketing his love life. He doesn't want to ease a random woman into his interests and lifestyle, or get to know her first before showing her his closet full of wizard robes.
Nope! Mr. Drow Magic-User here decided to start out with the picture of him in blue face paint casting straight out of his spell book. Women who laugh, gawk, or back away from him... well, they wouldn't have worked out anyway, yes?
So, while I think this is the dorkiest thing in all of Dorklandia, I also think it's a smart choice. This clever little elf might make 15th or 16th level.
