Sands of Athas
This is an image ment to represent a Mul gladiator (half-human/half dwarf hybrid) from the world of Athas of the "Dark Sun" campaign setting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Sun
I was inspired to do this image because I found a copy of the old "Shattered Lands" PC game set on Athas: http://www.squakenet.com/computer_games/5131/Dark-Sun:-shattered-lands/download.html
Despite its cheesiness compared to modern day games, it was really a pretty good game, with a good plot within it and faithfully represented the 2nd Edition AD&D rules. If you want to play it on modern systems, though, you'll need a DOS emulator like DOS Box: http://www.dosbox.com/
Finally, this is the first image where I have used my new logo made for me by Neoygdrassil [again, thanks buddy! :-) ).
