I had my first character about 4 years ago when i had just been introduced to the fantastic world of roleplaying. I will always love my first PC, she was a Mercenary who fought for Barely anything, not seeing that much point in paying for things when she could just have taken them anyway, (she wasn't exactly very ladylike), but was quite efficient in the field.

She met her rather untimely end fighting for her life in the gladiator pits of Karthoria having been captured by a group of slavers and sold to the pits. the only things she was allowed to keep were her clothes armour and broadsword. She had to buy her way out of there and the quickest way was to fight the most dangerous creatures, and so, foolishly she did.

A bit of a shame really when you look back and think on it. Go to Comment

I've just realised that that the one I added wasn't my first character. But one of my favourites. Silly me.

My first started out as a pregnant woman, stood in the middle of a field, in the pouring rain. Having gotten lost on her way from the train station.

It was a Cthulu game. I can't remember exactly how it ended but, I do remember the character process the most. Go to Comment

My first real D&D character was an Elven Battle Mage, whom I named El Liamo, after yours truly. My friend was acting as the DM for that run, and was running a simplified format. My character, after just a few hours, became one of my favorite weirdo characters: an alcoholic, hyper-violent, rude-joke-cracking Elven smartass who has periodic moments of arm retardation when he can't aim, as well as a chronic phobia of scorpions. This was because my guy, who's a little bit kleptomaniacal, or whatever, tried to steal from a drunk lying unconscious in the gutter. He picked four pockets: three had live scorpions in them, who then stung me, while the last one had a stone scorpion which turned out to be magical. Later on, I walked past the guy and poked him with a stick, in hopes of waking him up. He looked at me, garbled something completely incomprehensible, and threw a scorpion at my face. I tried to gut him with my glaive, but it turned out that not only did he have a spell on him that made his skin tough as stone, but my glaive was NOT made from high-quality metal. Yeah, it broke big-time. He also had a pet lion, 'cuz my friend wouldn't let me get a wolf. I think I named it Johnny....

Notable accomplishments:
- Fighting off 30 forest wolves and a very annoying bandit with the help of a giant stone scorpion.
-managing to go through a battle against level 1 enemies without killing either one, due to my atrociously bad rolls (seriously, they were pretty awful).
-Aiding a human and a werewolf in eloping (and getting slapped by the woman's mom for telling a really bad joke).
-developing both an alcohol addiction and a chronic fear of scorpions within one gaming session.
-solving a "which door to take" style puzzle through animal cruelty (Okay, there's this talking frog, right? There're two doors, and the frog says, "Passing through one of these doors will kill you, but the other one shall lead you deeper into the lair. You may ask me one question, but I shall lie to you." I asked which door was the right one, and it didn't answer, so I threw it into the door on the left, which, as luck would have it, was the wrong one).
-Learned Drunken Brawling from an alcoholic who called me "Molly."
-Getting knocked out with a stone beer bottle for, in a delirious state caused by blood loss and drunkenness, referring to a barkeeper as a "talking boulder." He said, "Don't many Elves around here." Interpreting that as an insult, I replied, "Well, you don't see many talking boulders running inns, either, but here we are." I woke up about an hour later in the gutter, next to Scorpio the drunk.

Yeah, Good 'ol Liamo's a real character, all right!

Think I might re-roll him as an assassin, though... Go to Comment

Wow, you served? Cool. I'm most likely going to join up in one of three ways:

1. Enlist out of highschool and continue my education using the Montegomery G.I. bill,
2. Use an NJROTC scholarship to get into a college, go through the Rotc course offered there, and join the armed forces as an officer, or
3. Go to one of the academies and go straight in as an officer.

P.S.: any advice on shining shoes? I can never get them to shine quite right... Go to Comment

klauston's comment on 2009-01-22 11:19 PM
My very first character, oddly enough, was named "Klauston", a 1st edition AD&D Magic-user. That was in 1982 when I was stationed in Bermuda. I happened to walk into a buddy's room and he had a game going and asked if I wanted to join. I'd never played an RPG before then and though I'd give it a try. I was 22. Klauston was revamped when the 2nd Edition came out and I finally retired him after 12 years of playing him. He made it to 24th level. Too darn powerful to be a good character anymore, he still makes an occassional appearance as the master of a Mage's School in some of my stories. Go to Comment

Technically, my first character was a bard that I rolled up in middle school using the 3rd edition books that I had checked out from the library.  Never got to play him though, because I didn't really have anyone to play with.  It wasn't until I was a senior in high school that I found a group that was playing VTM, so I created a dreadlocked, crazy Malkavian vampire named Lia.  I believe that she heard voices, but I don't really remember.  Only got to play her for a few months before graduating.



Then in college came a string of started-but-not-finished campaigns (mostly due to me moving), with another bard (whose name I don't remember), a druid shifter named Yarrow, another druid named Rown, and finally a kobold monk named Neeko (he was my favorite).  "You insulted the ancestors!  Meeko doesn't like you no more."  *proceeds to use naughty words for which he doesn't understand the meaning*

my first character was déantóir ifreann my friends thought it was a dumb name then I told them it meant hell maker in irish a human who was from a place kinda like ireland he had red hair and was covered in red fire tattoos he was a clam pyromancer he had a enchanted axe made of inferno stone blade with a fire bear's shin bone for a shaft I think he had a fire drake as a mount and pet he had a phoenix feather cloak, salamander skin boots and gloves volcano lion fur tunic and leggings yes I know he had fire everything but the gm said we had to choose a element and all a our equipment and our secondary class had to have something to do with it as well.
his notable deeds was retrieving the gem that had all arcane magic you like necromancy sorcery summoning demon magic basically any magic that didn't have something to do with nature.
he ended up moving back to his clan's home which was his battle cry it was dhó cnoc and becoming chief. Go to Comment

I don't remember many of the details of my very first character. Just that he was a Vrusk (think giant ant body with a humanoid torso) from Star Frontiers. My older brother finally gave in and taught me how to play (but only because he was bored and his gaming group wasn't meeting that day.)



I consider my first real character to be a Barbarian from 1st Ed AD&D, built from the wholly unbalanced and completely fun Unearthed Arcana rules. I was probably about 12 or 13, his name was Grunt Slash, and he excelled at wenching and brawling. The biggest danger to his health and sanity was a halfling thief who resembled Tasslehoff Burrfoot in many ways and had "picked up" a startling array of dangerously wild magic items (I think we took his wand of wonder away after he sent someone to another dimension.)



We usually had the radio playing during that long campaign and so a lot of 80's pop songs make me wax nostalgic. I found it is decidedly not romantic to tell a woman that Cheap Trick's The Flame makes me think of a bloodthirsty barbarian. :)

Fire wizard named Danius in an Empire of the Petal Throne game in the mid70s. (Yeah, "Danius" isn't very Tsolyani, but heck.) He was a devil-may-care guy who wasn't much into the power politics the DM loved; mostly he just wanted to destroy things, which fed into him being a Vimulha worshiper. Fun times. Go to Comment

It is a great legend to hear on the evening by the fire... and possibly much more.

Ria Hawk's comment on 2006-04-10 10:59 PM
Wow. Just... wow. It's beautifully described, and could be either a legend that the PCs hear, an otherworldly place that they hear about or encounter... or a hotbed of plot points, assuming they can find it. One that occurs to me right off hand is... what if the legend is true, and that once the last whale dies, Mother Ocean will end the world? Maybe the PCs have to protect/reintroduce/save the whales from extinction, in order to save the world... (Shades of Star Trek, yes, I know, but it's a good idea, and one that would work better in a fantasy setting than in the movie.) Go to Comment

Short should never be a problem. A submissions should be as long as it needs to be. That can be 4 lines, that can be 400. As long as the writing gets the point across and answers what you need to know about the subjects, it is long enough.

Remember, long does not ensure perfection or completeness, but it might improve your odds. Go to Comment

I like it. Well executed. Fascinating subject matter. Lots of hooks. A touch of myth. Two Paws, high 8!

It really makes me want to play Blue Planet or work on that Echo the Dolphin RPG setting that I played with for a while. Go to Comment

Wow...

I love it Muro. It has elements of sublime grace, exploitation, and majesty. Now I'm going to have to go and find that Ecco the Dolphin game now. Dammit. Go to Comment
