I think my attitude towards this is absurdly colored by my own biases, but what the hell, let's do it anyway! Pictures I like comics. I like films. Both of these are primarily visual media. Therefore I am pro-picture. That's... really all there is to it. Character photos, scenery, abstract images meant to depict a state of mind, colors, lights, gifs, the whole nine yards. They need not be literal, either, but I've yet to see anyone really take advantage of that aspect. Music If I had my way, every single post by anyone ever would have a music track associated with it. Yeah, I went there. See, even if it doesn't really fit the "mood" or seem appropriately "cinematic" - who cares? At some point you have to look at the roleplaying game as its own, unique sort of beast, and I think it's feasible to consider music part of what makes the medium different. The way I see it, a lot of people probably listen to music while they're reading posts, or writing posts, or thinking about writing posts, or thinking about the game in a sort of "Oh yeah I should post in _____" sense. So why not provide the readers with the music that you were listening to while writing a given post? It can be a theme you chose in a conscious sense, or even just whatever song was playing in your media player at the time. But then, when we go to read your post, we can cue up the track you provided, and that helps us get into your frame of reference for writing the character/update. I think that's really ****ing cool and, in a way, an extension of the shared sonic expressionism that music is all about. TL;DR - MUSIC AM GOOD, HA HO.
