No picture, because I've managed to lose the sketchbook I draw them in, but am not willing to admit defeat on finding it again.

ÕrimŽ II

ÕrimŽ II

We've reached DL 35 - one level above where ÕrimŽ I had her fatal encounter with Gorlim - and the two characters are very different. ÕrimŽ I had four or five artefacts; ÕrimŽ II has only...

Still not dead, but not doing great. Shuri has tried three times to explore DL40, and on each attempt has been stymied by horrible monsters. Her worst moments so far...

Shuri II - Half-Troll Druid

Shuri's been taking things fairly gently: she's down on DL 22 so far, nowhere near the L30 cutoff. But her 'better armour, better weapons' plan is paying off:

Morwen isn't dead yet! She's down around level 28 (and is L28 herself), and has just run into Ibun, son of Mim. She probably won't be fighting him.

As a Necromancer, she's actually a bit of a slog...
