This is the character I’ve been playing in a Dungeons & Dragons campaign. Gwinnura (Gwin to her friends, Mistress Throthgunahr to others) is a dwarf woman who has taken the opportunity of her recent widowhood to do a bit of adventuring as she travels away from her late husband’s home and towards the distant dwarven settlement where her daughters now live. She was a member of the town guard before she married and afterward continued helping the village by training the young ones in the dwarven martial arts. Now she’s dusting off her fighting skills to earn a bit of coin on her way across the land, taking in the sights and finding new companions along the way.
Here’s a personal piece I just finished. I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons with my family and I think it’s sad how orcs are depicted as just a bunch of mindlessly aggressive monsters. They have families, right? They must. So, here’s a candid portrait of an orc dad and his offspring.
