    The girls of Elmore really could be another thread...I will keep it in mind.

    And lest we start an edition war:



    She just looks bored.

    (I wanted to put up that wonderful pic of Drelzna from S4 LOST CAVERNS OF TSOJCONTH but sadly the only image I could find quick-like was hosted on a rather fishy looking site...)

    one of the things I idly wondered about back in my gaming days was just why hot chicks would take up the life of an adventurer, risking death, dismemberment, and scarring. Why wouldn't they use their looks to marry into nobility and be set for life? But hey, if they did that, we wouldn't have pictures of hot elf chicks, I suppose...

    Magazines and movies throw 'hot chicks' at us because they create a sense of urgency. These media are well-suited to offering further immediate rewards. Unless your blog follows up with explosions, news that ain't available elsewhere or loads more babes, all you generate is a sense of frustration.

    Otherwise, I can only assume that you don't give a fig about how women are represented in RPGs.

    A throwaway couple of sentences in a book I'm listening to now -- The Pirate Hunter -- makes for an interesting diversion on this.

    What's "hot" now might not be "hot" in our pseudo-medieval fantasy lands. For example, The Pirate Hunter mentions how visions of beauty in the 1600s had more to do with ample-waisted wenches with smaller busts, as, before the invention of the brassiere, a large bust was not only an unattractive detriment but also seen as peasant-like.

    So the explanation for all those large-breasted women in Elmore illustrations is that, obviously, they were undesirable for noble breeding stock and had to take up adventuring to make their livelihood.

    I'd have never thought to analyze that in depth like you did, but it is a very interesting point. Our ideals of beauty have changed over the years, quite drastically depending on the culture.

    Magic missile. With all due respect to Bargle, not everyone's magic missile looks like a glowy arrow.
