Brave New World by Mavrosh Brave New World by Mavrosh
~ Meet Madra and his daughter Geal. This shows them on their first day on the surface, standing at a waystone in Nevirh. The little girl sees her first human beings as they are on the road, coming closer.

They both have a noble background actually. Madra was forced by his sister to fight in the arena, being one of the elite fighters, known for his brutality. Noble houses in Dawarda are thirsty for fame and having an elite fighter in the family does not only fullfill this greed - also every hostile House is put off by knowing about family members of the enemy with good fighting skills.

So Madra was good, really good but he never wanted to be what he is. His sister put pressure on him by threatening the ones he cares for, she even went that far and killed Madras love (which is really something special since a relationship between a man and a woman based on feelings and nothing else is something really rare in the underdark) so he would not quit his career in the arena.

One day though, Madra finally had enough courage to run away and leave behind everything he has ever known - his home realm.... because he knew that his daughter would never be safe from her sadistic aunt.

"Enough blood has been spilled already. Even my own hands will never be clean ever again." ~

Thank you for looking and for reading! DAZ Studio 4 render with photoshop painting / postwork, characters are my own.

Das ist ein sehr schönes Bild und eine interessante Geschichte, Mavrosh! Ich hoffe, daß Du bei Gelegenheit noch mehr von den beiden zeigst. :)
(Ich habe so ein wunderschönes Bild von meinem Mann, wie er unserer Erstgeborenen gezeigt hat, wie ein Schwert richtig gehalten wird. :love: Daran musste ich denken als ich das Bild hier gesehen habe.)

Was mich interessieren würde (und die Frage geht an dich und Siobhan): Es gibt ja schon einige dunkelhäutige Elfen (Dunkelelfen und Drow) mit unterschiedlichen Gesinnungen; warum eine Neuschaffung der Rasse in Form der Helmorui? Was unterscheidet sie von den Drow (ebenfalls aus dem Unterreich, Matriachat, grausam und überheblich)?

Ich erlaube mir mal darauf zu antworten! :aww:
Da gibt es eigentlich einen ganz einfachen Grund für. Ich spiele gerne Rollenspiel, und zwar Pen&Paper. Die Regeln, die ich nutze, sind die D&D 3.5/Pathfinder Regeln. Allerdings spiele ich auf einer eigenen Kampagnenwelt (Vandarei), was meistenteils eine generische Fantasy Welt ist. Allerdings haben da alle Rassen und verschiedenen Menschenvölker kleine Sonderregeln. Ich wollte auch Dunkelelfen haben, aber die vorhandenen Regeln haben mir nicht gefallen... die Kultur schon, zu ca. 80%.
Also habe ich mit einem Freund zusammen abgewandelt, was mir nicht gefallen hat und einiges Neue dazu erfunden. Deshalb sind die Helmorui den Drow sehr ähnlich in Aussehen und Kultur, aber nicht gleich. Es ist also keine *komplett* neue Rasse, wenn Du so willst.
So habe ich allerdings nicht mehr die Regelfetischisten, die mir ständig erzählen, daß *Drow so nicht sind*, denn es SIND ja keine Drow ;)

Helmorui sind vor allem durch =Mavrosh bekannter geworden, denn sie ist eine sehr bekannte Künstlerin auf DA und sie macht viele Bilder mit den dunklen Schmuckstücken. Die ursprüngliche Rasse und die Regeln habe ich *verbrochen* ;) Allerdings hat sie natürlich ihre eigene Interpretation der Rasse, was vollkommen ok ist! Sind ja lecker Kerlchen ;)

Was für ein niedliches kleines Drow-Mädchen! Papa ist natürlich auch toll gelungen. Das ganze Bild ist mal wieder sehr schön, besonders gut gefallen mir die kleinen Details wie z.B. die eingeritzten Muster auf dem Stein. Irgendwie sehen Geal's Oberschenkel ungleich dick aus, ist das Absicht?

Dachte mir schon etwas in der Art. Ich schaue halt manchmal sehr genau hin, damit mir nur ja keine Details entgehen ... wäre bei Künstlern wie Dir nämlich echt schade drum.

Aber fast nur Männer. Vielleicht solte man einen Geschlechtsumwandlungszauber entwerfen :) ... und gleich an Socair ausprobieren, damit er das Frausein 'mal kennen lernt, das hat er vielleicht nötig, der Macho ;)
(Ich hab' 'mal einen DSA-Zauberer gespielt, der mit einer Amazone Körper tauschen mußte ... er hat das als ziemlich interessante Erfahrung betrachtet. Jetzt ist er zwar ein Frauenversteher, aber Nahema haßt er dafür immer noch :))
