Dontspill McGinnis — Post 6 Dwarf

by Alphaville Herald on 13/04/11 at 12:24 pm

[I take pride in Post 6 being a place where all sorts of Second Life residents can show off their avatar, so when it was pointed out in the comments last week that we've never featured a dwarf, I went on the hunt for one. Luckily, the person who complained that we'd never featured a dwarf actually is one, and quite a handsome one too. It was a great deal of fun and an honor to work with Dontspill McGinnis, and I am pleased to introduce him as this week's Post 6 model and our first ever Post 6 dwarf ~Timothy Morpork]

Dontspill McGinnis Final 1

Although I was asked to pose for post 6, it was, I suspect, just a way to keep me quiet. I had moaned about there never having been a Post 6 Dwarf, and then it was a case of "put up or shut up."

Well what’s to know about me? Well I'm a Dwarf, in case you hadn't already worked that out. That means I'm a bad tempered guy with a big axe and a beard, suggestions that i might be vertically challenged will not be taken favourably.

As you can Imagine, I haven't really done much in the way of Modelling before. Fashion in the Dwarven halls doesn't really exist. There is only so much you can do with chain mail.

Timothy and his Wife Carol were really friendly and managed to keep this rather shy Dwarf at ease. Oh and Carol, I saw you peeking!

None of these Human girls can quite believe the size of it.

Dontspill McGinnis Final 2

Dwarves are really quite shy. I think I'm the only Dwarf ever to have ventured as far as Goguen, and to be honest, I’ve forgotten my way back. All this green stuff above ground looks the same to me, so I'm kind of stuck. I don’t think my clan will be sending a search party because i had the only map. At least, that’s what they told me

I don't RP, which seems to throw people, but it is hard to RP a Dwarf when you really are one.. Maybe i should RP a human. But then again, I might get nose bleeds. I could RP a WWF Wrestler, but there are already a whole bunch of those guys in the sandboxes. They seem to be more interested in listening to other peoples conversations than they are in wrestling, and they don't tend to like questions about their favourite holds, or what boutiques they buy their stockings from. I think they call themselves JLU or something. They are pretty unsociable as a rule.

So what do I do with my time? Well, mostly I hang out with the other tall people in the sandboxes. We like to carouse and tell stories and jokes. Sometimes I build things (but not often, as I'm a warrior.) I often instruct new residents in the subtleties of Sandbox Society. I'm a dab hand around a cooking fire too, and can often be found stirring something up. I polish my armour a lot, because you never know when you might get run down in a sandbox, and as my ol' Da used to say, "it jus wouldn't do to go to 'ospital in rusty underwear."

Dontspill McGinnis Final 3

I also guard against Orcish invasion. As there hasn't been an Orc spotted in Goguen for many a year, I think I'm doing quite a good job.

I'll be approaching LL about my security fee sometime soon.

I'm pretty handy around Trolls too, so be careful as you approach the comments section, and don’t say I didn’t warn you about my huge chopper!

Oh, before I forget, I also kiss babies, pat stray dogs, walk old people, and pray every day for world peace and self oiling chain mail.

And I'd like to thank my Mum, the Milkdwarf, and the older Dwarves at school for NOT throwing me down the mine shaft. Oh, and I suppose I ought to thank Senban Babii for pointing me in the direction of a modelling career. All enquiries please to my agent, Kalel Venkman.

So, Timothy? Is this where you give me the sash, crown and flowers now?.......

    Is it wrong that I can’t stop thinking about his big chopper?

    I met Mr. McGinnis some time back at a Spring Festival I had hosted. It’s hard to forget that name. He was nothing like I’d been taught about Dwarves in school (except the part about being shorter than me and having a beard. That part was spot on.). It’s good to see such a fine upstanding fellow featured on Post 6.

    Ah, Senban… You’re only human, after all.

    Midgets? is there a circus in town?

    I’ve always felt Dontspill McGinnis was an exceptional dwarf of favorable height but on closer inspection I am truly impressed by the size of his axe. I can’t stop staring. Great post!

    That axe mite be big, but I reckon the gals prefers his hammer.

    I love medieval fantasy, and I’m glad you didn’t show his penis.

    I’m his Mrs. I bake cookies and I know the actual size of his axe. Can safely tell you it’s magnificent. He’s no bad tempered at all, a big softie really. When he’s hanging out with me, there’s nothing he likes more than letting me braid his beard. BTW noticed he thanked his mother but not me? That’s why he’s sleeping in the goat shed. Spilled McGinnis a.k.a After Flow

    @ Oh noes

    Truth is, Timothy didn’t have a wide enough angled lens…
