31 Days of D&D — Day 8

Day 8 — Favorite character I have played?

Well, this is a tough one. In almost 40 years of “playing” this game, I’ve only actually played it as a player character a handful of times.

I’ve always been the Dungeon Master, for better or worse.

So, to pick a favorite character is a rough one, so I guess I’ll go with my first: Wyrmfang the Fighter.

He had excellent strength, decent constitution and wisdom, average dexterity and intelligence. His dump stat was charisma which I played off as childhood scars from the cruel hand of a slave master I’d escaped from.

Wyrmfang had ambitions of being a mercenary. He was Lawful Neutral, but had I played him longer than a few sessions, Evil tendencies would have reared their head.

I was determined to play him as cold, calculating, and selfish. A team player, but putting his needs above anyone else.

G2I rolled up Wyrmfang at Brent Smith’s dining room table just before my first actual game played with the Oak Hill Dungeons & Dragons Club.

They were in the middle of Against the Giants, tackling G2 Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl, and as I was new to their Club they made me roll up a first level character.

Needless to say, I spent most of that adventure hiding behind rocks as we were pelted by massive boulders.

It was a great experience and I one I recall fondly… but ultimately the other side of the screen called me back and it’s pretty much where I’ve stayed.
