I love the kid in the wheelchair and his cabal summoning a demon.  I'd love to play this game.

Ron, I so want to find the players for a long stretch of Sorcerer & Sword... and pictures like that is one of the reasons why!


Also, I misread the rules, and thought we couldn't comment.

So, here's a PDF for setting I riffed on from the picture I linked: http://playsorcerer.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/future-perfect.pdf

It has more pictures!

Another good one.  I could totally make this character.

It's the cover of a novel "Secrets of the Demon" which I have never read.

Ron... That is totally cheating.  But it does drip Sorcerer.  Good one.
Chris... A lot of 40k imagery there.  I like the PDF a lot.  I've actually done a 40k Sorcerer though it didn't finish up.

Travis,

I've always loved the 40K art. But I never exactly knew what to do with the setting. I don't remember why, but I was really driven one day to think, "Okay, what matters to me about this stuff and how could I use Sorcerer to make it happen?"

I think this image, which I only bumped into, really sums up the Sorcerer version I'd be going for:

I mean, the man is literally being dwarfed and lost by his armor! You can see his Humanity at risk right in the picture!

Color: check.
Power: check.
Humanity: check.
Strong characters: check.

Here's the image of one sorcerer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vincent_van_Gogh_-_National_Gallery_of_Art.JPG
And another sorcerer, known to the first: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Paul_Gauguin_125.jpg

Please throw my previous stillborn post to the inactive file, I hit the "post" button by mistake (and I can't edit my posts even seconds after posting them, I never could)
---------------------------------------------

Well, a concept that always fascinated me was the Demon on a T-Shirt. Think about all the t-shirt with demonic images that you see around: what if some of them are really a demon? What if the most commercial ones ARE?

See the man on this picture. The way he proudly show the demon he did evoke. What did he want power for? What is the demon's need? What its desire?

The only thing that's sure, it's that the demon trapped in the T-shirt is not to be underestimated. It's old, oldest than the Great Old War Against Evil. Behind its monstrous humanoid facade, it exhales power, corruption and greed. But it's seems to be contained, trapped by a strong sigil. Maybe the image in the t-shirt is a container, a prison for the demon?

Now, all I have to do is find a way to use an Apple Cart in the evocation ritual, and I could have a good idea for a Sorcerer mini-supplement...

Sorry, was reading the T-shirt one and had to add the idea of why does a demon on the shirt have to have a face (or atleast, have a face as we concieve of one)

I couldn't find a good, concise image that totally gets thing across, but I've been wanting to do Sorcerer like this for over a year now:

Here's a couple of sorcerers.

Here's one of my very favorite demons.
