Grazelander headgear FTW!!!
This intimidating male headgear was found in the tomb of a Scythian chieftain in the Altai mountains in Siberia. Around 2,300 years old, it’s thought this headgear may have been worn by the chieftain in his final battle, as the damage to it corresponds with the fatal wounds on the man’s head.
The carving depicts the head of a fantastic eagle, holding a deer head in its beak, with figures carrying geese on either side. These elements were part of a complex headpiece which consisted of a decorated felt cap topped with an elaborate wooden crest.

Our major autumn exhibition explores the story of the #Scythians – nomadic tribes and masters of mounted warfare. Find out more about this exciting show: http://ow.ly/2aCW30dROsp

I attempted to draw a Black Ssu for a commission. Not fully successful, but not too shabby I hope.

OK, now that crazy +Newt Newport has added a wuxia, revenge epic onto an already batshit premise.
Another Update for the Mandate of Heaven...this time detailing the One Add On for the campaign I've just added...a wuxia tale of revenge and redemption called Dragons Ascending to Heaven...

Newt has statted up the dragon. Schwwwweeeet!
Finishing off the Monkey Quickstart rules and I've got complete write ups of the book's main characters and ready made adventuring group "The Four Pilgrims", Monkey, Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka. That gives enough characters for Narrator to run the game for four players. What happens if there is a fifth player or you don't want to use the mortal Tripitaka?

With that in mind here's a fifth ready made pre-made Immortal character. Tripitaka's White Dragon Horse :)
