GM’s Day is also a day to remember Gary Gygax, the Co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons. Without him, we wouldn’t have the plethora of games we do today and I wouldn’t have enjoyed my life quite so much.
I can remember so many adventures and so many characters. My first D&D character, a Paladin. I was so inspired by the picture from Sutherland that it had to be what I played.
Then the plethora of PC’s in D&D, of every class known. Some with many classes like Orion my 20/18/20 Fighter Cleric Magic User.
Then there were other worlds and other genre. Boot Hill and Shadowrun were some of the earliest.
I have run many campaigns myself, but my fondest memories are as a player. Below are a list of some of my favorite Player Characters.
- Ugh the Barbarian
- Axel McRoss the Bard
- Finn the Celtic Warrior
- Zardoz the Planescape Wizard
- Splinter Tongue the silent Gunslinger
- Charles the Thief who has become and unlikely hero.
Then there are the PC’s whose names I don’t recall but the stories I do.
- My Ravnos in a Vampire Campaign working to bring the Camarilla down. Started off with a bang.
- My Weird West Big Game Hunter who enjoyed being vulgar and rude as much as hunting large supernatural critters and telling tall tales.
- My Dark Sun Psionicist who was a twin. His brother was a Preserver. Little did I know, my brother was planning on merging us into one being when we came of power to create an Avangion!
- The Gangrel who was out of sorts in the big city.
- The Drunken Kung Fu Master who came to the Weird West and confused a backwoods preacher who never learned to read.
To all the GM’s from all the fantastic realms I have played. Thanks!
