It makes significantly more sense as a character illustration, yes.

Additionally, I do not feel dirty for having looked at it, and do not feel embarrassed to have it visible on my computer screen.

I mean, personally I don't really have a problem if you get shot, burned, impaled, or laughed to death because of your silly original thought on what your character would wear into battle.

In addition, you seem to be conflating "enjoyment of history and dislike for ridiculous caricatures" with "caring about what picture you chose any further than making a joke or three about its ridiculousness".


Oh, and the new picture has the following problems: The sword is too heavy, the shield is too heavy (and made entirely of metal! That's not how you make a shield unless it's a buckler), that armored collar thing around the neck will make it impossible to look up or down, the lack of armor on the upper arms is STUPID, the bracers don't extend far enough up the lower arm to be meaningfully protective, the spikes on the legs are stupid, the breastplate is not only shaped ridiculously but also extends down too far (thus making you unable to bend at the waist which is actually important in combat), and the hanging cloth waistband thing is just going to trip you in combat.

There's more I'm sure, for instance the plates are probably too thick but I can't see that for absolute certain.

Don't worry too much about the one mistake, Smoke Mirrors. Your character was memorable for all the demonology and story writing.

Iím running a game called Pandemonium. Feel free to check it out.

Dark Fortress
Reign of the Blackened




Prologue



Another dawn over the Bleak Valley. All the vegetation within its borders is completely covered with black ichor - the night must have been unusually violent and restless, as the nightly dark storms come with such intensity only when something of great importance is about to happen. The damned were silent throughout the whole night, giving all those living by the border of the pit a good night's sleep. Gazing upon this dark and withered scenery one could feel the weird charm of it - a sensation hard to describe or explain, yet clinging to one's soul for hours. The call of the Dark Ones is powerful, and it is rumored that they call only those, who are ready to undergo the beastly transformation.

However, the nature of the Wastes is even more powerful than the call of its rulers, and all those who dabble with arcane are especially influenced by it. Surely it is a time of great changes, the number of magicians, mystics, fortune tellers and wizards within the perimeter of Bleak Valley has never been so high.




Quinn Learner

After finding and speaking with literally all of the knowledgeable and skillful arcane scholars and magicians in the world, a pale man in dark grey robes finally set off towards the blackened wastes of the Bleak Valley. The infamous Black Archivist, as Quinn Learner was known by some, concluded that if he won't be able to squeeze any more information out of other arcanists, he has to conduct his own research, away from the safety of his study. Thus he approached the Bleak Valley from the north, spending the night in one of the borderline inns, and when the morning finally came, he passed through the barrier. There is no return now, even Gods can't break the spell keeping everyone inside the Bleak Valley. In front of him extends a path that leads deeper into the dreaded lands, its sides blocked off by unnaturally steep rock walls.



Quan

It was the last night in the damp, rotting cell within the dungeon of the Darkbog Citadel. All the hours of torture, pain, sorrow and malnutrition were about to end with Quan's first, and at the same time - last journey to the Bleak Valley. The sentenced were granted their only wish before their untimely death - the right to speak for the last time. Quan was travelling with people who tried to cross the border of the Northern Empire, a thief was among them. They have finally reached the Bleak Valley and guards brought them closer to a very deep pit. One by one, they were sent plummetting down to their deaths. it wasn't the fall that killed however - the monsters were doing it. Each and every one of the prisoners was brutally mauled by the blasphemous revenants once they hit the ground. As Quan was kicked, his orchard and previous life flashed before his eyes - then he fell on the ground and lost consciousness. He woke up next day, alive, covered with the black ichor and lying in a pool of blood. It wasn't his blood, and it seemed to look inhuman. There was something unusual about it.

Quan didn't know why he was left alive by the damned. He heard someone shouting in fury from above: 'I placed a bet that you'd die this night you muck eater!' it was one of the guards. Still bound by chains, Quan moved further into he Bleak Valley.



Leona Maple & Rainer Edmunton

She came from the east, with a noble goal and extreme bravery in her heart. Leona Maple, accompanied by her mysterious companion, Rainer Edmunton finally reached the Bleak Valley, the heart of darkness they both swore to destroy. The wandering knights descended down a dilapidated tower and following a straight path, they moved forward towards the blackened land. The couple reached a place where they had to split however, and the dark magic of the land ensured to split them for good. Leona found herself back in the tower, while Rainer moved towards a pit used to drop off the sentenced.



Morion

Many years have passed since Morion started to study the arcane. Many years of dissapointment and pain. Led by jealousy, the pale and gaunty man set off towards the Bleak Valley, the dreaded land of dark spirits, revenants and black ichor. His tenacity only increased, when he found out that The Black Archivist is going to be among the beasts as well. It was his chance to finally gain all the power he was after, and so he came from the west, from where he could clearly see the Dark Fortress.



Demir

Demir escaped from the bandits that attacked his caravan. He had no sense of direction whatsoever, he was led by his survival instinct. However, this untamed strength led him into even worse situation - he ended up within the accursed lands. He spent the night in a relatively safe cavern, and when he woke up and left it, he had no idea where he was. All Demir knew was that the death is waiting for him at every corner of this dreadful land!

Nowhere to go but forwards.

Quinn advances upon the path, all the while watching the currents of magic.
