One of my favourite John Gorka Songs.
From C.J. Cherryh's Ealdwood series. Ha, it's very similar to the Whelan cover! Oh well! XD
Lilith Saintcrow's Jill Kismet.
Alas! I couldn't fit the whip in there nicely somehow. XD
While I don't like the hero much, Eric van Lustbader's Nicholas Linnear series of books are great fun! He writes the most wonderful Bad Girls. ;)
And so we have Shisei Omuke, from White Ninja (no, no, it doesn't mean Caucasian ninja - though lol... that was the initial conclusion I jumped to)!
This is beautiful.
On the other hand, if I had known that this would be what my maxlevel epicced-out mage would look like then... I'm not sure I would have bought / subscribed to this game at all. XD
And that's not even going into the whole Landslide mount thing. OooH that's another good one. The worst part is that Trion tries so hard to make their players happy. They gave Landslide a tail. Just go browse the thread. It has good peektures!
