/tg/, I'm looking for help with a problem.

I'm going to play an avenger in a 4e game. The setting is homebrew because supposedly no other 4e setting is creative enough by the DM's arthaus-like standards.

In this world, the people's traditional faith is normally in the primal spirits. But, there's a new religion that's gaining ground globally at a startling pace, because it can unlock the secrets of creation using soundwaves.

Basically, they can divine past, present, and most importantly future with sound voodoo, and they can power lost technology with soundwaves. They're futuristic in aesthetic and also blatantly music themed. DM's example: Their radiant damage is accompanied by musical notes in more ways than one.

That sounded cool. Anyway, the DM requires us to have portraits emailed to him. I looked through Danbooru for something for a music-themed avenger, decided on this, Photoshopped the pink hair to the only other color I could manage (blonde), and sent it.

It got rejected because "This is an anime picture." Admittedly, it really is. So can /tg/ help me find a non-anime portrait for a character that meets these criteria? I'm NOT asking for a drawfagging, just help finding an existing picture.
- Young, female, human (I can settle for elf), don't care about hair color
- No armor at all, because avenger
- Two-handed sword
- Music-themed visual effects present
- Preferably sort of futuristic-looking as far as clothing goes

>> No.16581163

And if nothing else, I'd like to note that it's hilarious how he refuses anime portraits yet has a world set up like a goddamn jRPG.

>> No.16581228

>>16581167
There's a problem with /tg/booru: Its tagging is not comprehensive.

Let's say I want musical notes, to play to what my DM is envisioning. I'll go to Danbooru and search for any of these tags, all aliased to one another:

musical_note, musical_notes, music_note, musical_notes

And I'll get literally 171 pages of results.

If I search for any one of those tags on /tg/booru, I get zero results.

I think you should know that your DM essentially *is* copying a certain JRPG: Tales of the Abyss. In that game, the Order of Lorelei is a global, music-themed religion with the ability to divine the future through a music-themed prophecy known as "The Score."

It also happens to have control over a handful of the world's most potent (magi)technology.

If anyone wants it, this is the original image. I went for brown hair at first, but then I just couldn't pull it off in Photoshop. Blonde was the only natural hair color I could manage. Then I went and made her full on Aryan ├╝bermensch because it fit the color scheme better.

OP, not that I want to imply that I know how to deal with your DM better than you do, but have you considered calling his stupid ass out on stealing his setting from Tales of the Abyss and then getting all indignant when you offer an "anime" portrait for your character?

Because seriously, anyone who gets pissy because something is "anime" should be your first red flag. Blatant hypocrisy should be the second

Although, if we were to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he *hadn't* just lifted his setting from TotA, we can do even better.

I'll play it smoothly. I'll name my character Lorelei, throw in as many Tales of the Abyss references as I can (might be hard when I haven't played it), and then bring it all up maybe two or three sessions in.

And my two cents on the whole situation: seems kind of hypocrisy to make a setting that easily feels like it's got Japanese anime/game influences, then hate on pictures with that kind of art style despite them fitting the theme very well. But, then again, I'm a laid-back sort and wonder why anyone would care what kind of art you use for your characters, period.

In all fairness, the members of the Order of Lorelei do not dress in faux-futuristic clothing. Its clergy dress like Catholic priests (Ion, the boy to the left, included). The soldiers and agents of its military wing, the Oracle Knights, are garbed in your standard fantasy JRPG wear.

If your GM knows about Tales and admits he got it from there, than his "this is anime" thing is full retarded.

To clarify, the OP's Dungeon Master appears to have, whether by coincidence or by hypocrisy, copied a key facet of the setting of Tales of the Abyss.

The character in the opening image is a recolored Kanonno Earheart, the female lead of Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2.

These two games are from the same series, "Tales of," although the former is a "mothership title" (main game line) while the latter is an "escort title" (spinoff line).

To clarify, the OP's Dungeon Master appears to have, whether by coincidence or by hypocrisy, copied a key facet of the setting of Tales of the Abyss.

The character in the opening image is a recolored Kanonno Earhart, the female lead of Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2.

These two games are from the same series, "Tales of," although the former is a "mothership title" (main game line) while the latter is an "escort title" (spinoff line).

I'd refuse the OP pic on the grounds of the ridiculously short skirt and the thigh high socks.

Feminists always say "rape isn't about sex, its about violence" and I always scoff 'cuz if I was gonna rape someone it'd be a hot chick (duh).

Now I understand. I would rape your DM. No matter what they looked like or what gender they are. I would rape your DM over and over until they bore both mental and physical scars (in their rectum).

Either DM your own game, find a new game, or don't play. This is one of those few circumstances where it is absolutely not better to play a game than to play no game.

You're one of those idiots who posts in every 'is this skimpy outfit acceptable in game' threads and thinks it's a legitimate question, aren't you....

'Tis a silly question since all skimpy outfits are appropriate in games.

Unless you describe your character as ugly. Then cover that shit up.
