Hello to you all who have followed us for so long! Due to the departure of several characters from the party, we felt it pertinent to change the team’s name. In kind, even if we don’t update as much here as we used to, it feels important to keep this blog up to date as well.
More art, stories, memes and beyond to come, and we thank you all for taking interest in our adventures as you have! We love you all, and stay radiant!

#still blows my mind that there are almost 300 of you here #blessings to all of you and may the dice roll ever in your favor
I just realized I never posted Deekek’s level 5 outfit, her monk robes were starting to get a bit rough so she decided to keep them safe and wear her traveling clothes. She’s still wearing her monk prayer beads though.
I know we just reached level 4, but I’m so excited for level 5. Deekek will finally get to meet Syranita, the aarakocra goddess. I’ve been wanting to do this piece for a very long time and finally worked up the courage to bust out the old watercolours and give it a shot!
Aarakocra are creatures of air and the wind is very important to them. Not only does it support and aid them in flight, but it also carries songs- the history of their people and letters from home. Every place has a song, but you have to listen very carefully to hear it. And sometimes, if you’re lucky, Syranita will send you a song of her own.
Aarakocra are very affectionate and will often times sleep together in one large nest/bed. The most significant gesture of affection for them is touching foreheads, which to them means “I love you. You are safe with me. I am here for you. You can trust me.”
I saw the artwork for Deekek using sun bolt (which is amazing, btw), and I burst out laughing because I also play an aarakocra named Deekek, but she's a Potoo Aarakocra (Lvl 6 Eldritch Knight Fighter) and could not have a more different aesthetic or vibe than hummingbird Deekek.
Oh my gosh that’s amazing. Funny thing is, back when I was first debating what kind of aarakocra my Deekek would be I was debating between a tawny owl and a potoo XD
I haven’t ever talked about it on the blog but the temple Deekek is from is a temple of Syranita, the mother of all aarakocra. The holy time for Syranita’s followers is sunset so when I saw there was a Way of the Sunsoul subclass for monks I knew I had to pick it. X)
