Contest: Where's This Illustration From?


First person to correctly identify the publication containing this illustration gets a free PDF copy of your choice of either F1 The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies or F3 Many Gates of the Gann. Post your answer to the comments below.

(I don't know whether this shows up in more than one published thing. If it does, you need to identify the particular thing I took the picture from. Life can be hard.)

  1. Man, this is tough. The DSL mean David LaForce aka Diesel. He did illustrations for the Drow series D1,D2,D3 but I dug those out and did not see this illustration. I also checked my Deities and Demigods, as it appears to be Drow priestess, but it is not in there either. DSL switched to doing cartography later on. The hue of the image really looks like the old module covers of 79,80,81.

  2. Yeah, I checked in GDQ, as well as other modules that Diesel worked on and had no luck, which makes me think it's some FR module/book with drow in it, perhaps, or some other non-1e book that I've simply missed (perhaps MotP or DSG or whatever).

  4. So,where's this cool illustration from??
    I think it's probably high time you revealed the mystery since 1 year has passed ;)

  5. I'm guessing it's from a Polyhedron issue...

  6. Is it from an issue of the Player's Association News, a UK predecessor to Imagine Magazine? I don't have any issues, but the cover of issue #10 (Sep '82) has a DSL piece that I'm not sure appeared elsewhere.

  7. I hear guesses, but guesses are not the same as answers!
