    Default [4e] A picture paints ...

    OK I am introducing my two bairns to the whole D&D experiance.
    They had a quick go of 3e and now I'm moving them on to 4e.
    I've printed out Power cards for everyone as I think they are a great aid.

    My eldest has no trouble at all he's ten now and quite able to sort himself out, but my lil girl is only 4 and can't read so well, so my plan is to use pictures to demonstrate each of her powers so she may select which she wishes to use herself... this is where you come in.

    She is playing a fairy (she's 4 give her a break) which is a reskined Eldarin wizard.
    So I need pictures that sum up the powers and class abilities of the 4e wizard, the 1st level ones will do for now but I will no doubt need a few of the higher level ones soon enough.

    I don't usually have trouble finding an image or two, but I want these pictures to be really evocative of the powers they represent so the help would be appreciated.

    Fly my pretties, bring me back the images I need

    Level one, she knows thunderwave, the firey column one (who's name escapes me), all the cantrips, sleep... I am at work so I'll have to look them others up at lunch time... about 10 minutes or so.

    Cheers Kristoss, I'm not too sure she will get startrek reference, though it is clearly apparant what is going on to us, to the eye of a 4 year old that might just as likely be invisibility or the like... though how I will find a better one I'm not sure. This is a tricky challenge, which is why I have conscripted enlisted you all.
    Don't be discouraged though, it is a good start.

    Thunderwave (?) -



    Edit: Not so much, I s'pose, as it does sonic damage and not the electric damage, but... still.

    It would be excellent for lighting bolt however... and as I say she's 4 thunder and lightning are definately associated... oh, I forgot to look up her powers at lunchtime, so I will look this evening.

    Hmmm I saw this and thought of feystep... still its not really right... I just like it, not all that evocative ....

    Just a thought...

    What about using the images from Magic The Gathering cards? There should be a wealth of them available, and I suspect many will resemble what you have in mind.

    Finally, a use for Magic the Gathering cards that doesn't sap my very soul!

    I went looking for possible images on the Wizards of the Coast website, and was surprised to not be able to find one image depicting a damn feystep.

    Fortunately the internet loves fairies. Should be simple enough just to find loads of fairy themed images your daughter will like. Few quick examples:

    Sleep:


    Scorching Burst:


    Feystep:


    Thunderwave: (could find better)


    Definitely have to squeeze this in somewhere though:

    I'm tempted to throw it open to say post a good pic for any power, I'm using powercards as are plenty of other folk, so why not get som pics for them all, go ahead go nuts and I'll try and catalogue them in the first post ... if it turns out to be a popular idea.

    It should be noted that the man who took this santa/farie photograph is named Mehmet Turgut. He's apparently well-known in the Turkish photography scene. A large number of his photos (careful, some of them are pretty racy) can be found at deviantart.com
