The Nexus

OC inspiration & potential RP blog.


i'm struggling to develop a sense of style for my hexblade in DND. 

my fantasy ladies are either super feminine/blatant femme (see: ryan or fay) or super tom boy/blatant butch (see: naya or dagny). i'm trying for something in the middle, though, and I'm struggling lol. 

riley was raised among nobility, was well educated, and now she works in a cartography guild, so she finds appearances important in professional and personal life. so i want her to dress well--especially since her charisma is 18 lmao. i want her to have a scholar vibe, but that will be obvious with her bag and maps, i guess.

i guess a modern equivilent for the style i want would be what i do for my tomboy cori (you can click to see a moodboard for her): a preppy but not too feminine look with a collared shirt, pants, flats, sweaters. what's the medieval / fantasy equivilent to that?

Shaun Leane, Silver Thorn Arm-Vine and Earring, made for Alexander McQueen ‘Dante’ runway show A/W 1996

the boys is inspiring me to write and draw Cori more again. she suits this sort of superhero genre so well: the kind that flips the narrative a bit and makes supers the bad guys. i'm love her.

Are you ever so filled with love for your OCs you physically hurt that you can't draw every single one of them this moment immediately

rave asked:


thank you!! i have a few worlds, and most of them are very much like ours. and that'd be boring for these specific questions, so i'll muse about maia's craftworld for a bit.

🚗What transport is available?

It's the future and it's in space!! Most "ground" vehicles hover in some way. Maia prefers single-rider bikes. Proper space ships for fast, far travel are common too. Maia in particular makes use of one that stores one of the mentioned bikes so she can easily explore and travel no matter the planet.

🎭What do they do for entertainment, usually?

The Eldar population is smaller than it once was and much more spread out than it once was. I don't think proper sports or other entertainment is common. But I think wargames might be--tournaments for warriors between different craftworlds.

🔪What sorts of weapons are there?

Maia in particular uses a powerful sniper rifle with plasma for ammunition and a range suitable for her intense eyesight. There are lot of melee weapons out there, but few things beat a simple knife. I'm not a fan of something like lightsabers lol, and if it's not broke don't fix it. So melee weapons are relatively simple.

An Anonymous user asked:

🖊+Rowan (still doing these?)

always! and Rowan is a great one to ask about because I'm still struggling to firmly develop her and Fang. but here we go~ 

Rowan, like Flynn, has a bit of a grunge aesthetic going on. For Rowan, however, it's intentional lol. She dresses like a fashionable punk and acts like one too. She #resists in all ways except for fighting. While she makes cash forging IDs and the like, she'll work free of charge for refugees or runaways. 

She also wears glasses and likes the color orange.
