Princesses Playing DnD by madam-marla Princesses Playing DnD by madam-marla
I think every princess is a _heroine_ first and foremost :)
I have thoughts for each of these girls and how they'd behave around the table, so feel free to discuss. ^^ Enjoy!

PS - Elsa and Anna aren't included cause I started this piece last year, and never got around to shading it until now :)

Small FAQ:
Why is Snow White DM?
I thought it'd be fun, because she had most experience in the biz, and she prooved to be a great coordinator in her movie. The dwarves listened to her, and she was firm, but kind. I know, I know, she's not most people's favorite, but I like putting her in charge because she's ofter super underestimated, and she deserves some love. Sometimes the shiest people can surprise you when they tap into their creativity. :)
Why isn't Kida/Meg/Esmeralda/Elsa/Leia/[Insert Princess Here] included?
I made this to mock the Disney princess lineup, which resulted in me only using the "official" princesses. It also resulted in a really really big adventuring party, which brings me to:
TOO MANY PEOPLE AT THE TABLE!!! A round would take forever!
HAHA I KNOW, right? :D But I figure since this is parody, and the poor girls don't REALLY need to suffer to wait for their turn, it's fine :P I just wanted to include all the girls who get the princess label though, but personally, I don't like playing DnD in adventuring groups larger than 5, because even if the DM CAN sometimes handle huge groups, it becomes more tiring for everyone.
What classes would they be?
Definitely hardest question to answer, cause the class you pick doesn't necessarily fit your personality, but your acting ambition, fascination, curiosity and momentary fancy. Any of them would be barbarians or monks or druids. I do think that people new to DnD often rp their personal favorite classes, but later on, people branch out and play ANYTHING, and enjoy changing the character masks they wear considerably :)

Nice pic. Two things though: Merida would totally be GM, or she'd be playing Rolemaster.

was about to say i wonder why belle wouldn't have been the DM but then i read the description and it makes sense and she looks so awesome at it, shes got that little flare in her eyes that make her perfect for it and i love how belle is reading the rules ready for her turn as DM  

Merida - Ranger
Aurora - Sage
Belle - White Mage
Taina - Warrior (Single Sword + shield)
Rapunzel - Thief
Pocahontas - Warrior (Two handed Sword)
Cinderella - Black Mage
Jasmine - Assassin
Mulan - Warrior/Mage
Ariel - Archer

never played DND but im sure those classes would be proper for it based on MMO's i play

TEEHEEE :) Maybe she just wants to be DM in the next session they hold, so she's brushing up on the dos and don'ts ;)

But yeah, out of the bunch, she's definitely the rules lawyer :)

Speaking of Disney Princesses and RPGs, I just realized Pocahantas is the only one of the "older" princesses that hasn't appeared in a Kingdom Hearts game.  And by older I just mean those that predate KH.  Of course, she's also the only one who's an actual, real person, so that might have something to do with it.  Maybe she'll appear in a game after Sora puts the worlds back together.

:iconprofesortempleton:
Mulan was an actual, real person. ^.^

I think the real reason they haven't included Pocahontas  in KH is because they feel the 'there is no evil' themes of the film wouldn't mesh well with KH.

Indeed. Another reason for Pocahontas' lack of inclusion may be that her movie kind of failed to critics and in the box office, and they think of it as unpopular.

Totally unrealistic. In a party of this size, one person would be errantly doodling, one would be actively arguing with the DM, another would be playing another game on their phone or something, and two would be arguing about what kind of pizza to order. 

Otherwise, brilliant!

Cool...but Aurora looks more like she wants to be sleeping though. It totally makes sense that Snowy would be DM seeing as she's the first princess. And take THAT, people who say girls can't play DnD!

Forgot one, Nala is a princess...well a queen to be exact but was a princess before Simba came to power. 
Reply
:iconlink2hyrule:
Link2Hyrule Featured By Owner Edited Sep 13, 2014
To Be Exact, they all become queens eventually.  Except Mulan, she was never a princess in the first place.  And Pocahantas, she moves to England, marries an Englishman, and dies at 18.  Also, I don't think you want to bring attention to Nala and her relationship with Simba, since there are only two male lions in the Pride that could have fathered her.  And that is based on how a Lion Pride actually works.

Everyone is so insanely on model! I love the idea of Snow DMing, and while, yes, the player group is too big, maybe they're split up for now. It looks like some of them are paying more attention than others.

I absolutely adore this!!! I'm a big Disney fan AND an avid RPer. I actually had a barbarian who became one of my favorite characters and to this day she's like an alter ego. When I made her I told my husband (the DM) Pretty much Pocahontas with a temper :) I never much liked Snow White BUT I can totally see her as DM :)

you know why I love this picture so much?

1)I love DND and disney so the concept is awesome
2) it begs the question, what if thier whole adventure was ust a campaign in the game

and
3) It shows off every ethnicity Disney has explored! None of this "Disney whitewashing" every body claims exists. Everytime somebody makes a claim like that I'm going to show them this picture
