Quote of the Month
Roleplaying is an art with many components to it. Graphic art, comic books and literature can all easily add to our roleplay experiences or even stem from them. Our featured art this month is that of Justin Oaksford, an artistic illustration of "Ozymandias", based on the poem by Percey Shelley.

This month's music challenge: A Pandora station for your character!
Explore genres that you’ve never been into. Avoiding what you normally listen to forces you to explore and listen to new options that may be something your character would like. It’s sometimes hard to listen to things that you don’t like for the sake of your character. However, try to get into your character's mindset and ask yourself, ‘Is this something my character would listen to?’. When you’ve gotten a few songs, make a Pandora account and make a channel for your character. It plays related music to the bands that you’ve chosen and suggest bands to add to the channel so you can keep experiencing new music and songs.
Have fun immersing yourself into your character's music! Post your experience and comments in our character music section on the forums.
