    ITT your first character

    For me, it was an old 3e human rogue. I hadn't actually read any of the material, so I ended up confusing Wisdom with Intelligence and allocated all my skillpoints in Charisma-based skills. To make matters worse, I rolled him horribly, with 12 being the highest attribute and everything else sliding under 10. The equipment? Medium armor and a scythe.

    I thought he was a total badass, of course, but I learned pretty quickly when he didn't survive long enough to leave the inn we started at.

    3e wizard, old and angry. Made him a complete asshole towards the group as a whole. His highest stat was 17 which I put to intelligence the rest didn't go over 11. He got his ass handed to him in the beginning, but as soon as he hit level three things started turning around. Retired with him at level 17.

    2e human wizard. 2 hp. After helping to rid a town of invading goblins (Cast shield, then sleep, then took a fallen goblin's arm to beat the others with) he chased after them a few steps yelling "Fear Kodos, god of Pain!"

    Killed by the innkeeper. I tried to set him on fire with a lantern (?) but he beat me into submission with a chair and a broken bottle and I bled to death while everyone else tried to figure out which room I was in. Yes, I was killed by a level 1 commoner.

    To be fair, the rest of the party didn't fare much better. Our (also-human) fighter pulled his sword on literally every single NPC we encountered without even speaking to them. He was later raped by a pair of bounty hunters he thought he could take despite the DM's repeated warnings that they were "10 FUCKING LEVELS HIGHER THAN YOU!"

    Our cleric was a typical "OMG KAWAII" fangirl who insisted upon being a Japanese-named half-elf and forgot she had 1. spells and 2. weapons. Yet, she somehow managed to kill off a wounded member of our party by critically smashing his head open with a mace trying to pull a "STUPID BAKA" slapstick moment.

    A Human Cleric of Kord. When I joined up, the party wanted him as Support, but I didn't want any part of that, especially since we didn't do so well when I listened to them and took all healing spells and held back. The other characters were a Sorcerer, Bard and Barbarian, after all, and a lone damage dealer wasn't cutting it. So I changed my tune and took it to the front, swinging my mace around like a madman. I soon learned that enemies didn't actually die when they reached 0HP, and I took this as an opportunity to repent. Every time I came across a helpless enemy that spoke Common, I'd place a boot on their chest, hold my mace above their head, and demand they repent and accept Kord as the strongest god. If they did, I'd stabilize their wounds and move on. If not, I left them with a concave face.

    My first character in an RPG was a Toreador in 2nd Ed Vampire: The Masquerade. I only played him two or three sessions before he got killed by hunters. I don't remember his name, or much about him, except that he was a good painter. Or a musician. I'm not sure which. Basically, he was the most stereotypical Toreador fop ever.

    After that I played a Tremere hacker who got co-opt'ed by the Sabbat and forced to become antitribu. Since the Prince was a Tremere, and thus able to see the Tremere Antitribu brand on my forhead, I didn't last too long after that.

    I don't remember the next 10 or 12 Vampires I played, but they all died or something horrible happened to them inside 3 or 4 games.

    1st edition: An elven fighter, that's what everybody rolled back then.

    2nd edition: A halfling thief, his life was hard.

    3rd edition: A human rogue, he fared better then the other firsts, and eventually became a goddamn terror with a dagger.

    3.5 edition: Another human rogue, this one eventually managed to get Improved Crit Rapier + Roundabout Kick, basically he just ran around criting people with the rapier + sneak attack, then kicking them in the balls with roundabout.

    4th edition: Dragonborn Warlord, great for combat but he's completely worthless for just about everything else.

    My first character was a human magic user named Zach. I hadn't quite got the concept of WIZARDS STAY IN THE BACK, so I ran him like a front-line fighter who dual-weilded silver daggers.and had a shitton of normal daggers for throwing. Surprisingly, he did really well in combat. He had plenty of RIP AND TEAR to give out to his enemies.. His backstory had him fighting in slave pits as a child, only to be adopted into a noble family of elves at 9 years old. When I converted him to 3.x I gave him two levels in Barbarian to represent his fighting style(FUCK YEAH RAGEMAGE!). Zach is now the Emperor of Alvaria, the realm that had previously enslaved him. He also has an Inquisition(a low-level agent of which is my latest OD&D character.)

    First character in an actual PnP game?

    Exalted first edition. Twilight caste solar. I didn't care for sorcery, but the other castes had someone in them and everyone in the group absolutely fucking REFUSED to have more than one of each caste. I had one very useful low level sorcery(bronze skin I think it was called), but I never got further into sorcery than that. I got forced that far.. and everything else was too costly in essence, willpower, and time to make me think they were worth it. I was mostly into the healing tree and a martial art. A few dots in ancient knowledge too(which got me an EPIC WIN early on when I prevented an ancient first age artifact from going BOOM and fucking everything up).

    She was fun. Wish the campaign had lasted longer. I wouldn't mind playing another martial art + healing solar. Don't really care about sorcery. If you do that.. that is kinda the focus of the character. You build your stats around it and devote all your XP to doing it..

    For DnD? My first actual non computer game character for DnD was a Tome of Battle character. Sword Sage. Also fun.

    Good book OP. That book is sitting in the bathroom of the pre-school I work at.

    My first ever character for any sort of roleplayan was a guy who was fuckgood with throwing weapons, and not much else. I don't remember much about that character, I made him for a usenet/IRC game I played in back when the internet was young, before AOL got started.

    My first ever Tabletop PnP character was a 3.0 Sorcerer Half-elf, who multiclassed rogue and got to level ten (sor5/rog5) before I realized how shitty that Idea was.

    My first LARP character was a Gangrel who took the flaw "Probationary Sect Member". I played him for over a year, by which point He became prince, mostly due to the virtue of The second oldest character was only 3 months in. Having an extra 9 months of EXP over the other players was enough for them to all decide they didn't want to fuck with me. Helped that he was a sneaky shit. I had two Tremere and a 9th gen brujah three points blood bound to me. My Gangrel died after 1.5 years of play when the storyteller got bored and Pulled out Gehenna (Rocks fall everybody dies) ;_;

    3.5 fighter. First action ever was trying to intimidate the barkeep into letting me sleep there for free. And failing. Was going to the whorehouse with the rogue and ranger, but I didn't like the looks of the place, so I went and found this lady whose son was missing. I agreed to find him, and I got to stay all night and get food.

    Then I got everyone else to join me, except the rogue and ranger, who were transporting a half orc whore to a different brothel. After those douchebags flipped the cart over, we came across them on the road. Then some necromancers and lizard men showed up, and someone let the orc out of her cage. I accidentally killed the ranger in one hit. Then he got revived and tried to stab me. The orc beat him over the head, and then I grappled with her cause I thought she was after me. Good times.

    I don't want to be a one trick pony, and the "I stand in the back and cast spells. Don't hit me!" type has never appealed to me. Ever. Besides, the cast times, willpower expenditure, and essence cost? Wow. Holy shit.. expensive.

    The only reason I had sorcery at all on that one was because it was my first exalted game. I had no idea what I was doing, and some of them seem convinced I just HAD to be a sorcerer and nothing but if I was going to be a twilight solar.

    In fact, one asshole in the group always bitched at me. Every single time I used what the MAJORITY of what my actual charms were.. he'd bitch. CASTERS STAND IN BACK was almost a battle cry. Didn't even realize I barely had any sorcery.. and wasn't really built for it at all. I was built as a martial artist and healer with a useful sorcery for protecting myself in combat(stacked oh so well with a charm in the martial art.. which is one of the reasons why I agreed to try sorcery out). She was pretty YOU CAN'T HURT ME. RIP AND TEAR.

    3rd edition. I rolled a human paladin who I had made a generic moralfag. After much smiting at the sides of another paladin and a dwarf wizard he started to waver on from lawful good to lawful neutral, killing anything truly evil became kill everything evil which became kill anything that had ever talked to anything evil and before you know it he became evil himself and fell. I made him completely ignorant that what he was doing was wrong up till he ended up fighting the other paladin who got him down to 3hp. A speech from him ensued about how my character had changed so much that he didn't even know the difference between a good and evil soul. I made him sit there for a while, eventually he rose looking at his paladin friend. He then stated "Thank you." and dropped all of his alchemist fire at his feat. The other paladin watched as my character dropped a lit torch on the pile and exploded into flames. The dwarf meanwhile was getting drunk. I had fun with that character.

    The party had been hired to clear out some bandits.
    It turned out that they were the rightful owner of the town I was hired by.

    After learning this, I knew what I had to do, and did it.

    I went back to the town, turned in the head of bandit leader, and asked for my reward. They decided that, rather than to simply pay me my gold and send me on my way, they would just kill me. Even after I said "Hey, I don't care, I just want my gold". Still kind of pissed off about that, he was pretty fuck awesome.

His character sheet was rejected a lot of times for insane power gaming(yes.. you can technically afford the OMG UBER WTF KILL ALL artifact at creation.. but the ST isn't going to let you have it).

    In a Mage game he was in.. his character died by trying to take on several elder vampire(clan leaders) and other mages.. as well as an entire room of normal vamps.. at the same time. Sure, he was a mage, but what the fuck, man?

    Actually that reminds me of a Ranger which was my friends first character. He played him surpraisingly well, and had him specialize in Archery. Anyhow eventually the party discovers that the King who's acting as they're patron has used them to spark a war between their nation, and another having them attack a number of small villages he claimed where cults dedicated to I think it was Bane? As a result upon finding this out the next time they were in his presence he grabs the king by the neck, and throws him out the closest window then proceeds to shoot him three times before he hits the ground. Needless to say it probably wasn't the best move because it went from a war into a war, and a three way civil war as the kingdom tried to determine the kings succesor.

    Sometimes I like to imagine what an incredible abomination he must have become by never coming out of the wild. Our ST was looking forward to rolling up mutations when he came out.. but the player stopped coming to games. Thought the ST was out to get him. Keep in mind he thought the same thing when he CHARGED AN ENTIRE ROOM OF VAMPIRE, CLAN ELDERS, AND OTHER MAGES.

    The game was much nicer after he was gone. I bet the one guy remaining in the group was happy. Got all us girls to himself. There had only been the two guys in the group.

    My first character was a cleric, and I did most of the work despite not knowing how to play a cleric, since the DM didn't exactly tell me what to do. So basically I lead the charge and healed myself whenever I got to hurt.

    He also had a rather strange obsession with lighting things onfire, including but not limited to our first tavern encounter, a brothel, the inside of a tower we where currently on the top floor of, and the inside of a cave which we where standing in.

    This thread is now about first characters for any given system, not just the characters we broke our RP cherry with. I had a catfolk rogue in FR who at one point tried to take over Helmsport. He had a tower off in the jungle, and he hired some DORFS to dig a tunnel from there to the town, where they would meet up with other dorfs who were digging from the basement of a house to the tower. The character managed to call a retreat, and was able to get away safely with his survivors. He also owned a castle/whorehouse in Icewind Dale, and I think he bought a warehouse or two and an apartment in Calimport.

    3rd edition Gnome Cleric. I came in late and was just learning the game so they stuck me with the healer cleric.

    He was a jackass with a really high wisdom and strength score, and made people say "please" and call him master and say he was awesome before he'd heal them in combat.

    Suffice to say, when he got into a bit of a jam with a group of local bandits after a poker game where he was "obviously cheating" (i wasn't, but bandits are sore losers apparently...), my party members weren't exactly quick to help if you know what i mean

    First in a system?
    ADnD: Half-elf with scout kit. Perhaps I was a rogue? No group then, so simply an exercise in character creation.
    DnD 3ed: likely because of above, I was a half-elf ranger. Still liked them even though they sucked.
    DnD 3.5: no idea, though I have played a bit of it.
    Exalted 1st Ed: It was mostly a game to get used to the system. But me and the other main frontlines were martial artists who couldn't hit a superior blocking automaton. I think I was a Zenith, but soon started avoiding them and Dawns.
    Exalted 2nd: Zenith to round out the circle, but I like them much more now with Integrity and Presence. Eclipse still have the best caste ability, followed by Twilights.
    Mage: Whatever the medieval setting is. Seer/bard with Time/Entropy/Connections who was probably getting ready to turn into one of those "My reality is stronger than yours" types if given 3 or 4 more months. Didn't help that another of our groups was picking reality apart with prime and we were trying to save a crazy mage (mavericks? What were those called, drat it).
    Vampire: exercise in character creation because a friend dragged me into a game where the ST didn't want more people.
    Shadowrun: human semi-shaman with a gigantic magical poleaxe. Just a one-off to try out the system, but interesting.
    GURPS: quickly made swashbuckler-lite at TL 3

    ... my second DH character was Reyla of the Caer Poreyn tribe. She is a Feral assassin, and very angry.

    First thing she did was decide that politics suck, and politicians are retarded. Understanding only strength of arms, she really could care less for under-handed manipulations. She also never lies.

    Guess what her campaign was? Protect a politician. Having no tact whatsoever yet at the same time being delegated as the group's face-person, she led them into a fire-fight in the first session. After destroying a poorly equipped and prepared team of insurgents, Reyla interrogated one.

    Reyla interrogated him by threatening to castrate him. Then she did it anyways. Then she cut off his head and threw it at another prisoner.

    Time goes on... she was captured by corrupt guardsmen and placed in a cell underground in a large guard complex. In her escape, using only a fork and knife, she managed to save a man being raped by several jailers, shooting them with a lasgun she managed to grab off of the wall as she escaped. Once again, castrations ensued, as well as several surprise headshots.

    She's still alive, and about to go up against some Eclipsion Terrorguard

    3.x Goblin druid

    it was an odd campaign, we had such a big group for 1 weekend we had to have 2 DMs, the idea behind it was human army vs orc army (one dm per side).

    I was the brains behind my orc overlords, Fightgar and El Donko Punchero (i still lol at that name), my other buddy was a goblin ranger who track'd and shot ppl, had an owl named Dr. Jesus.

    I later classed into shifter, became a gopher, took natural spell, and blew up the other sides siege equipment with lightning bolts from the sky, with Dr. Jesus spotting of course.

    Then our leaders got assassinated and the rest of our horde fell due to infighting, but we still got those humans off our stolen shores by crikey!

    Now, I swear to God I'm not a furry. Or emo. Nor was I back then. I was a bit weeaboo in my youth, however.

    My first character was a Raven sorcerer named Poe, after Edgar Allen. He used a fire-halbred, wore Saiyan armor, and brooded all the goddamn time. I like to think that I didn't play him as a complete Mary Sue, but in my inexperience it's not unlikely that I did.

    I was a generic ranger in 3e. He was unable to do anything rp related because one of the other players was Anakin Skywalker with a longsword. DM was better friends with him than he was with me, so he basically catered to him.

    "You miss."
    "I bring my longsword back up, slashing at him."
    "Ok, you hit him. He falls to the ground and begins pleading for his life."
    "Anakin picks up the fallen mans weapon and puts his weapon and his to his throat (A la episode 3) and decapitates him."
    "You can X amount of exp because you got the kill. You are now two levels ahead of the party."

    He didn't even have two weapon fighting nor did he roll for decapitating the man and his illegal second strike. I'm not a rules lawyer but that really annoyed me. Also, we helped fight the guy yet we receive no exp. This went on for a while, when he started turning into Vader I left. Within two minutes the other four players left too.

    "I buy this armor and helmet, then burn it to give it a black appearance."

    A pretty bad first experience, I had watched my older brother play and was expecting a somewhat original fantasy rpg. What I got was one unoriginal character doing everything. Sure my character had no backstory or special features, but he and the other four players didn't deserve to be in the shadow of one players character the whole time. I've yet to sit through a game as bad as that since.

    A Malkavian named Nikolai (Nature Penitent/Monster; Demeanor Loner/Visionary depending), previously Darius Richardson, with a very melodramatic backstory and schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and dissociative identity disorder. He was also Jack the Ripper.

    If you tone down his backstory to be less Mary Sue BAWWW I'M A CRAZY ORPHAN WHO GOES EVEN CRAZIER BECAUSE THE MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM IN THE VICTORIAN ERA SUCKED, he might make a good NPC, but... yeah, a little too fucked up for a PC. I didn't get to fully use his derangements, since most of the time he only showed the bipolar stuff, and there were very rare triggers to set off both of the others at once (and they have to be rare or else, you know, TONSOFMURDER).

    My first D&D experience was DMing, in a game which started the day I brought the books and ran from 1st to 15th-ish level with between 5 and 11 players (started as 11, gradually went down, jumped back up to 10, then fell apart). So I didn't actually have a PC for quite a long time, although I'd made a few "lol pvp" characters for 1 on 1's with another player (I avoid doing that any more, because I want to keep my perfect/undefeated title).

    My first character was Helm Ambledragon, human rogue. I'm really tempted to copy-paste his backstory here, as it's on this computer. Mechanically, he was 15th level pure rogue, he dual-wielded +1 Brilliant Energy Shortswords and he combined a Ring Of Blink with a Cloak Of Major Displacement to get not one but two 50% chances to ignore any attack made against him (and 50% chance to ignore any spell which targeted him, and he takes one half damage from area-of-effect spells).

    Brilliant Energy plus Blink (which renders people flat-footed, as you attack as if invisible) was fun too - I was almost hitting people by their flat-footed, touch AC (they only got Deflection and Natural Armour bonus').

    He died quite quickly when he tried to disable a trap and failed magnificently (oh shi- scything blades kill me from full hp), but the party had Revivify prepped (resurrection without penalty, but you have to cast it within a turn of the death, before the soul leaves the body) so I was right back on my feet.

    Another spectacularly poor moment was trying to Coup De Gra something and blinking out (Blink gives people attacking me a 50% chance to miss, but also gives my attacks a 20% to do nothing). Three times.

    Another laugh he had was when the fighter rolled a critical miss and (using our groups natural 1 chart) managed to critically hit my character, and knock him prone, and stun him. I rolled exactly 15 on my save against death from massive damage - one less and he'd have decapitated me. I then spent a round stunned on the ground, another round fumbling for my weapons, and a third round getting to my feet. All the while, three fire giants were pounding at me with Greatswords, but not one attack got through. Eleven attacks, all of which either struck my displaced image or came just as I blinked out.

    Oh boy.

    I still play this guy, through different campaigns since my DM has them all in the same timeline. I'm really mixed ashamed/proud of him, because although he's had a lot of character development, he started out full of really bad cliches, and they've not gotten much better.

    Basically, MY PARENTS ARE DEAAAD > Devil Possession by killer > childhood alone, to first incarnation. 3.0 Half-Elf Ranger/Ghostwalker. Oh yeah. He was THAT bad. His major exploits were almost being eaten by frost wolves, lighting fire to an orc camp, being raped in the butt by a black dragon after being turned into a woman (Long, horrible story that eventually got the interim DM thrown out), time-line shenanigans that brought him back to our 3.5 campaign. He then gets a magic scimitar named Anonymity, because his major shtick is his, well, anonymity, and his yin-yang mask. The scimitar was the DMs doing, though.

    Alright, skipping ahead a bit, through more time-line shenanigans and psionics making a DRAMATIC ENTRANCE to the campaign to mess with things, my character is reborn again as a Soulknife/Hellreaver. This is his current incarnation.

    His character development, though, has brought him from Chaotic Good to Chaotic Neutral to a brief Neutral Evil stint, and back to CG again. Long stories short, he quite literally goes insane dealing with party members (A 'Lawful Neutral' [Chaotic Random] Drunken Master DMPC, an evil fighter, and a Cleric that worshipped himself), and goes on a murdering spree, only to be shocked back to normal by several events.

    My first D&D character was in a gestalt game. That's right. Without knowing any of the rules I was told to make a gestalt character. Mind you, this isn't the best part. The previous day I had gone out and bought one of the books that was needed for the game.

    After some talking between myself and the DM, I figured out that I had bought the DMG. Not the thing the players needed.

    Anyway, my first character was an ogre half-dragon druid/rouge. Yes, I am completely serious. I told the DM I wanted to play something strong, and by god I got my wish. I was set up to dual-wield, use a few spells, and I had spring attack.

    He didn't die in-game, but he should've. and I admit it was very lulzy. Our party came across this cave, and me, being the sneaky one, decided to take a look inside.

    DM: Alright, you see a leathery orb shaped kind of like a football. It's around 3 feet wide. It has a bunch of ropy tentacles.

    Me: OK, what else do I know about it?

    (after knowledge nature)

    DM: This is a beholder. It is a cave-dwelling creature famed for its uncanny sight.

    Rest of Party: Oh shit, get out of there.

    Me: No problem, I'm really sneaky. Does it have any treasure?

    DM: You know its eye is a powerful magic component worth thousands of gold.

    Me: Sweet. I'm going to sneak up to it and stab it.

    (after it hears me coming)

    DM: It wakes up.

    Rest of party: Oh shit GTFO

    Me: I stay really still and hide in the dark.

    DM: Alright, it fires its disintegration eye ray at you. *roll* a 28 hits your touch AC, right?

    Me: Um, yeah, I guess.

    Party: Oh shit

    DM: alright, roll me a fortitude save.

    Me: *roll* I got a 16. I rolled only a two.

    DM: *sigh* alright, you take 128 damage.

    Me: But, that means, I'm already dead? I thought I was hidden!

    At this point, the rest of the party telekinesised my body (yes, that was where the DM was nice) out of the cave. His game didn't last long after that.

    My first Exalted character was pretty awesome. He was bi-polar. I took both Hyperactive and Depressed as flaws, and every day I'd roll to see if he was having an up or a down.

    Thing is, my character was a tough-guy detective, so admitting he had a mental condition would have been like showing weakness to him, so he never told any of the other characters and I never told any of the other players-only me and the DM knew.

    I'm usually the 'method actor' type of roleplayer- I put a lot of effort into building a consistent, believable character, my character's personality dictates every decision I make as a player. This was our third or so campaign together, so there was some pretty fun confusion around the table as to what the hell was going on with me, and trying to predict and work around my character.

    I once had to deal with a human paladin that worshipped himself, SO MURDER, RAPE, AND ATTEMPTING TO MUSTER AN ARMY OF CHILD SOLDIERS WAS A-OKAY! My catfolk fighter had to at one point go about town rounding up kids and bringing them to their parents because this retard wanted to send a bunch of children into Hell to fight devils. That's only cool if they're being led by a kid. I eventually tracked down the paladin and exposed him to the townsfolk. They were none too happy with him, but because the DM encouraged thoughtless powergaming, they did nothing to him. I left the group shortly afterwards. The DM from that group later showed up in a Greyhawk campaign. He ran a narcissistic human sorceress who was always at odds with my halfling fighter Matten Bobbins, another OD&D to 3.x conversion. By the time I had to move to Toronto for school, Mat had the highest kill count in the party, and was rewarded with an impressive looking bong that could double as a club.

    I sucked, because I ran out of bullets and we were fighting undead all the time.
    Also, everyone was a goody two shoes in the party, except me...

    OH NO SOMEBODY SAID FURFAG! Seriously, grow the fuck up. I wasn't running around screaming YIFF YIFF, and I never will, because that's just fucking stupid. Most of my characters are humans, halflings, or orcs anyways. Hell, after so much DF, I want to make an insane dorf barbarian who wields an iron warhammer that menaces with spikes of puppy bone.

    My first character was in 1st ed. Exalted. She was an Eclipse caste archer and me being a newbie idiot, thought it would be a good idea to focus on the diplomacy part of an Eclipse.
    My GM kind of screwed me over in that we spent all of our games in the north away from civilisation. That and archery really sucked in first ed. The lack of speed bonus on bows meant she was always going last in combat and her measly amount of health levels (I put the one Ox-Body I bought into 1 level -0, stupid I know) meant she had to abort to dodge all the time least she die too quickly to get help from the rest of her circle.
    Moving over to 2nd ed. was the best thing that happened to that character, she kicks arse at social combat (though I had to spend some xp on presence and performance, what's with social combat not actually relying on socialize any?).

    Human paladin named Tyroneus, your stereotypical funky black guy. Armed with a dagger(which he constantly threw at enemies before engaging in fisticuffs) and with the majority of his ranks in dance he was my favorite out of all the characters I made.

    I forget his name, but my first Twilight: 2000 character was a Canadian Combat Engineer who carried a C8/M870. Our first encounter was in the forests of Poland with a bear. After convincing my friend that using a grenade against the bear that was right next to our truck was a bad idea, we shot the bear in the head a few times, harvested its meat, made a cloak from its fur, and mounted its head on the truck as a hood ornament. A pity the game went nowhere afterwards.

    I played a 2e Female Fighter/Mage Elf named Lucia, who ended up being struch by insanity, stripping off her clothes and go screaming into the night. That campaign was fun, we had another character try to chop down a treant for wood and get soundly thrashed for the attempt and a third character decide to sneak into the dragon's den by himself....we never saw him again.

    Pyromaniac CN human sorcer in a low level campaign. I tried to make his spell list balanced but he never seemed to have cause to use much besides Burning Hands so I just rolled with it.

    The party ends up having to defend a narrow country road flanked by super dense undergrowth from an advanced ork party - stock 1st level warriors except for a lieutenant and some 2nd levels, but still 50 against 5. No party member is above 4th. Sorcerer ends up saving the day by accident. He runs at the barricade. no armor and a club for melee, BHing everything that gets within 15 feet. Barricade's mostly scrap wood so it goes up into a massive pyre. A combination of good shooting and a well-timed Ghost Sound spell provoke the orks into charging where most of them die horrible flaming deaths.

    AD&D Human Paladin, although the very first was actually an Elf Fighter/Mage that didn't survive a rat bite (his only injury that session)

    Plate armor, greatsword, high STR and CON with an OK CHA.

    The Paladin's goomy Moral Code became like a straight jacket so I begged the DM to let me have a LE Dark Paladin, serving devils and other awesome evils.
    That campaign went until about L15, although some members were higher because they lived closer to the DM and gamed more frequently.

    Techno-wizard, Phaseworld Setting. One of the things we all learned from the experience, aside from techno-wizards being fuckawesome, is that a technowizard with the mineral rights to a planet is gamebreaking.

    And also fuckawesome.

    First Overall: Eccentric photographer in a Horror/Mystery campaign (run in GURPS) who could see ghosts and had fairly above-average physical scores as well as being a skilled driver. Little slow witted and highly uncharismatic, though.

    First DnD: Fairly standard 3.5 Dwarf Barbarian swinging around a War Axe in each hand.

    3.5e Chaotic neutral Drow Swashbuckler. (I've not been playing for as long as the rest of your fa/tg/guys. About 8 months.) I was far, far too curious when exploring dungeons, so it ended in my character having her skull chewed on by some hulking monstrosity... Which in retrospect, is pretty funny.

    First major character I had was actually in Classic. He was Rufio, a Warrior. The name was made up by the DM, because it was corny enough to convince one guy we didn't want to play with us that the characters were randomly generated. He was a bad ass with his long sword. Then he was killed by a black dragon.

    At least it was a dragon, and not like an orc or something.

    It was just a little sample game to try out the rules; a level 1 cleric in 2e who was teleported out of a tavern into a minidungeon with tasloi in it. He beaned a few with his mace.

    Vampire: The Dark Ages

    Malkavian Toymaker named Simon. Nature/ Perfectionist, Demeanor/ Autocrat.

    He was supposed to be a court craftsman for a local king, but was sired by a child vampire. (think the Interview, just less pedophilia)
    Simon lusted for a local woodsman's daughter (she was around 19, in b4 pedo), whom he used for inspiration in his carvings. The child vampire becomes jealous, so she kills the daughter. Simon goes berserk, and kills the child vampire.

    He lives on the town's outskirts with only his large collection of puppets keeping him company. In addition to his obsessive-compulsive derangement, he gains mild schizophrenic hallucinations.

    Oddly enough, his knowledge of etiquette and politics designated him the coterie's diplomat. Those were some really awkward negotiations at points...

    1st PnP character was a man in a homebrew variant of Call of Cthulhu's system. Raised his Headbutt skill to 90%, and dumped everything else to his bodily skills (Athletics, punching, Swimming, Jumping, Climbing, etc.) and nothing else.

    He can wrestle interdimensional horrors.

    Yeah, I'm new to PnP.

    Dude, my Lasombra knight unwittingly loved a 14-year-old girl. She was considered an adult.

    Also, nice Malkavian! I like them sort of endearing at a first glance but scary as hell when you examine them.

    Drunken Brawler? What book is that in? This sounds promising for my next character...

    My first character is still my favorite, where I was a half-orc barbarian-druid. Scratch, as he was called as he didn't know his own name, was always up for plundering gold, leading the rest of the party into various traps as he dove headfirst into battle and into treasure rooms. Once, he fell into a pit of fire ants while a battle encounter was taking place in another room, all because he saw some treasure at the bottom. It led to the party's face being killed as he set himself on fire and rolled on the ground to snuff them out (which we later discovered was stupid because, well, they were fire ants). Another time, he led them into a room with a laser-powered crystal treasure room. The rest of the party followed to cover his butt, and when the trap activated, he cast stone-meld to evade the effects.

    He was ridiculously depraved and greedy, but the party had a shitload of LOLs whenever he did something else stupid. Often, I suspected they lived vicariously through him, as they shouted out things for him to do, which I often went with for the hell of it.

    My second character was a 3e halfling rogue/wizard inexplicably named Leif d'Alkirk who eventually migrated to 3.5 when I switched games. Won an enchanted pocketwatch off of Olidimarra in a completely bizarre card game (he had no idea what it was, of course, but he eventually found out he could stop time with it) and went on to survive all the way up to level 17 when I retired him to a recurring NPC.

    He still pops up in my campaigns from time to time.

    An Elven Ranger, who was very Legolas-inspired. I took the Racial Enemy thing to extremes, with his hatred of Goblins so strong that he actually ended up becoming evil after lone-wolfing his way into a Goblin lair and slaughtering all the inhabitants on more than one occasion. Ironically, he ended up taking trophies from them so often that one NPC looked at him and asked, "What, were ye raised by Goblins?"
