I wasn't playing then but I recall Mike V saying that. Maybe he can chime in here.
that or you could go wilderkin and be an animal who in some cultures is considered a bad omen (like a raven, or an owl) so you can have the gypsy curse that wayDom said:I think a voodoo character would be more along the lines of a barbarian
well because face paint like that is what many NPCs do for undead, plus what your discribing is VERY un gypsy like for are game, and dark colors would still not work it has to be bright colors.p.richard said:But really?

...it sounds like you guys don't go all out like I remember. Then again, I see videos online in which people are dressed up as "gray dragon looking things" running around killing each other. I also see beautiful elf makeup and NPCs wearing masks to represent their creatures whether it is skeletons, zombies, unicorns or whatever.
