The nymph, a creature usually found in northern mythology looks human but has traits that are not. The most recognizeable one is the cowtail.
Of course, as the modern age of man sets in, it is no longer easy to be a creature of mythology. Thus the creatures go into hiding.
One can spot the creature by their shadows when the angle of the light is just right.
In mythology, the nymph or "Huldra" as she is named in Norwegian, had quite the affinity for men. Whereas they would lure the men with them into the mountain halls whereas the men would never be seen again.
This particular one is named Gunniva and is just waiting for the right one to pass by.

And she is not happy. The character is based on Fafnar from the game of Tibia. There she is the sun goddess, the daughter of an elder god and the element of fire.

Dwarf Fortress is a game where one control dwarves. Now these dwarves have certain qualities. 1. They do whatever they are told as long as they have beer. 2. They are rather absentminded.
It has a interface based on 2-d rom above, whereas one can change the levels of depth. Now, the graphics aren't really amazing, as it uses the ASCII letters to the various creatures and items within game. (Though one can use graphic mods to see the characters differently.)
The interesting thing is however tha every character is described. Personality, looks, jobs, family and how they feel.
The best part of this game is the community though. They create amazing art and stories based on the games they play.
If there is anything you`d like to see, feel free to write me a comment below. I can't say I will draw anything, but if there`s a particular situation or a particular creature that is interesting, write something to me.
