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?

Want me to gush about my OCs?

Send me a “🖊+an OC“ and I will talk about that OC! It can be a headcanon, a fun fact, a small paragraph of backstory- anything!

Alternatively, send in just a “🖊“ and I will talk about any one of my OCs at random!

i already know that Fang works for Cori (in a particular AU). but i'm thinking that maybe Rowan also does. Fang is very much the muscle when it comes to security, but Rowan could offer cyber security.

however, she doesn't work for Cori at first. Rowan knows her gf is working for some big-wig security company and decides to test just how good they are. in doing so, she...... i don't want to say "hacks".. but she manages to get through the network. she's shut down pretty quickly because Cori isn't a hack at her job either. 

but Rowan tries again and leaves her resume on Cori's desktop lmao. it'd piss Cori off but I think Dracko or Flynn could convince her to give Rowan a shot. and here we are.
