Day 27: If you had to do it all over again, would you do anything different?
I would be more orderly and not jump around from one thing to another. I would run episodic games once a week with campaigns lasting 3-4 months.
Day 21: First time you sold some iof you D&D books - for what reason, if ever?
It was a Spelljammer Boxed Set called the The Astromundi Cluster. It just seemed like a waste of my time to even read through it all. It was a poor setting.
Day 15: The first edition of D&D you didn't enjoy. Why?
It was 4th ed D&D. I felt like they changed the whole character of the game.I hated the combat oriented game and all the battle mats and maps. It felt less about imagination and more like a bad vidieo game. Dam the designers may Orcus smite them.
Day 12: First place where you bought your gamming supplies. Is it still around?
The store was called MoneyHaven which did sports card, collectibles, comics and rpgs. It was in Panama City Florida. It is long out of business. The people there were not very friendly even to people that spent money like myself. They had a monopoly and knew it.
Day 10: First issue of Dragon, Dungeon or some other gaming magazine you bought?
I think in 1992 I bought a Dungeon Magazine I don't know which one it was. I think I bought some used Dragons Magazine later on.
Day 6: First character to go from 1st level to the highest level possible in a given edition. (Or what is the highest level character your've ever ran?)
The highest total levels character which naturally earned them was my elven 7th level wizard/5th level thief named Avatar Sumanda Sulaco (former Emir of Mekeet). He was had a gold skeletal assistant and traveled with a sacred bovines. I retired him after a long career of thievery and wizardry. He was the richest character I ever had.
Day 5: First dragon your character slew.
We were on a mission for some druids to collect items from ruins to save the world or something like that. A red dragon guarded an item so we got a bucket of lard sprinkled spices on the lard bundled it up and put in a bottle of poison. We offered it up to the dragon as a baby in order to allow us into the ruin. The poison made the dragon sick enough for us to grab the item and flee through the druids portal. The dragon did not make its saves and died.
I think we called the dragon Lard-baby-eater.
Day 4: First dungeon you explored as a player-character or ran as a DM?
The first true dungeon that I remember was Tegel Manor. I played a thief named Embrace Nothingness. He eventually did live up to his name and died there.
The first dungeon I ran as a DM was in 1993. It was home-brew dungeon leading to the under dark. It had giant rolly-polly or pill-bugs in it, plenty of drow and a underground freshwater bay.
The dungeon and nearby city are still in by home-brew campaign setting.
Day 1: First person who introduced you to D & D. The Baroness in 1991 at her restaurant on a slow Saturday morning. The adventure was about a giant and a magic cauldron. I played a fighter because it was the easiest to learn. My first encounter was on the road at night with hobgoblin bandits. Which edition? 2nd Edition Dungeons and Dragons Your first character? Sir Nogoodnik a first level 1/2 eleven fighter. I seem to remember playing him as a arrogant and rather confused knight. He survived three games and then he retired with the gold he gained from adventuring.
