A bit late on the summary, but here are my 2013 stats: 10 ladies, 20 guys (same as last year… hmmm…). Just 5 of the anthropomorphic animal-types (including the fire salamander), and (arguably) 12 normal-looking human characters. I was able keep all 30 in a contained fantasy story this year, including 10 avatar characters. My secret theme this year was martial arts characters of which there were 5 (karate or kung fu), and one afro kid who’s moving his arms like tai chi.
My goal for this year was to keep it all in that one world, and I drew a lot of my inspiration from playing Magic the Gathering with my friends, or playing Diablo with my girlfriend. Thanks everyone for the help, patience and inspiration.
