Hey guys, I'm going to be running a Greco-Roman themed game and I'm looking for character and npc art. I'll dump what I have. I'm especially looking for civilians and other npcs.

Do you mind other mediterranean people like the Iberians, Thracians, Illirians, Lybians or Sirians?

>> No.43312988


I can definitely use other Mediterranean people. I'm not doing a strictly historical campaign, so anything with 5th cent. BC to 1st cent AD is good. I'm not looking for strictly historical stuff either. I'm doing fantasy so I don't need stuff to be historically accurate. I just want that greek-roman flavor- lots of loose flowy tunics and robes, white dresses, togas and such. Some iberian, punic or asia minor type stuff is also welcome.

What kind of characters will your party be playing?

>> No.43315074


It's gonna be a low fantasy based on D&D 2e Glory of Rome. So mostly warriors and rouges. I've already got a load of warriors and osprey type historical illustrations. So now I'm looking for thieves, merchants, evil magicians and such to illustrate npcs.

>> No.43315162

Sounds fun. Is the primary culture going to be a greek or roman one with the other playing a secondary? Or will it be a combination of the two?

Primarily Roman.Greek will be secondary, with celts, punics, persians and africans as tertairy characters. It's sort of a pastiche setting. Ahistorical in the strictist sense, but still pretty closely based on the real cultures.
But I doubt my players can tell the difference between a toga and a himation (or any other aspects of greco-roman clothing) so anything white, loose and tunic-ish is good.

>> No.43315486

Sounds like a fun time. If you haven't yet, I suggest reading Steven Pressfield. I'll post his three works I have on PDF.

Gates of Fire is a semi-fictional narration of the Spartans and the events at Thermopylae.

>> No.43315504

Tides of War is a semi-fictional narration of the Peloponnesian War.

>> No.43315534

And finally, Virtues of War is a semi-fictional telling of the story of Alexander the Great--from the perspective of Alexander himself.

The Campaign I'm in is running into the phase where people are getting very powerful, so Book of the Warlord would be the most desired book.

If anyone can help, thanks!

the other one is a crop out from a larger image so there's no signature on it, but it's from an osprey book I have. I'll have to check but I'm thinking that's also McBride

...ok, I cant find the book right now, but it's one of the Osprey books, "Macedonian Phalangites" or something, but I'm thinking that's also Angus McBride. He was like the grand old man of historical military illustrations. He also illustrated a lot of the old RoleMaster based Middle Earth RPGs, particularly the covers. I think he's dead now.

>> No.43329794

>> No.43330269


I think it's a reference to Caligula, who was so named because he father would dress him in a miniature soldier's uniform (Caligula meaning "little boots" in latin). Of course, Caligula didn't turn out so great. But I doubt the dress up alone was what did it.

Not sure about TV shows, but Gladiator is kind of okayish. (Soundtrack is fantastic.) The Eagle is more two dudes' epic journey to recover lost honor, but what I like are the series of books by Conn Iggulden about Caesar's rise and downfall, although I apologize, friendly Anon, because I forget the name of the series.
