Question 18: Art that inspires your game?
Too many to pieces to count. Anything from game-book interiors to pulp novel covers to works by the old masters and random stuff discovered on the web. Everything and anything can spark something.
And the art for the new edition of Runequest is just incredible.
One specific image which was an incredible inspiration was by the artist Angus McBride in–iirc–one of the Osprey mil-history books about German Medieval Armies.
A simple soldier, wearing mail, plate greaves and vambraces, carrying shield and falchion and with a chapel de fer upon his weary head.
This image had so much weight of history and story in it he became a character that I called Bernhardt of Bremen.
