It all started back in Bastrop when my brother started playing AD&D with some
of his friends from school. And it started to spark interest in me and my friends. So my
brother decided to start being a DM. We went through many home made, and many stock adventures:
Temple of Elemental Evil, Desert of Desolation, and there were plans to go through Bloodstone,
but we stopped playing when there ended up being only two regular characters to show up (Jorge
and me), and we were controlling too many NPCs.
Then I went to college at Southwest Texas State University, and met Bo
in one of our many Computer Science courses... I believe it was my second semester in my first
C programming class. I think it took us a while to find out about each others interest in AD&D,
but we finally got enough people interested in it and we started to play.
Our Dungeon Master is the infamous Bo. We are playing on his own world.
The mage was the mighty, and destructive to peoples stature (I'll explain this
Thaos did Good, and made sure we all did Good!!! He quit school for a while,
so the DM finally made him a NPC (with a 4 intelligence).
Solon, the son of a noble, liked to turn into a Griffin and nibble on peoples
fingers when they stick them in his mouth. He used to be Eremon Longwalker,
but we kinda... forced him to leave. Solon came back as a psionicist.
Aiden was a Bard of sorts... He was too busy to play with us near the end of
our college life, so he went off to take some singing lessons :). And now he is in the Army.
Tedra the Amazon... Nuff said.
Algaranna was the newest member of our party. We found her as a sailor on a
ship we were traveling on. She was yet another noble... and an elf to boot.
And last but certainly not least (except in stature... *CRY*) was me, Cadderly.
Ok, when I started out I was a 6'6" human cleric, wearing platemail. On the adventure that
we met Algaranna, our ship was going to be taken by the city guards and used against our nation
in a war. We decided to save the ship, this is where Solon first ate someone's finger. I cast
hold person on the leader of the city guards, and the battle was going well... Then Lisern
cast Nahal's Reckless Dweomer, and it polymorphed ME into a 3'9" Dwarf, wearing 6'6" platemail.
So I waddled around the boat for awhile, Solon got captured by some of the guard. So I ran up
to him (in the breastplate and a Big Blue Hat) and said, 'My Liege, the King has called for
your presence immediately.' The guards didn't buy it, so I quaffed a full potion of Growth.
So I became a 27'9" Dwarf in a breastplate and BIG Blue Hat. Needless to say, I scared all
the guards away, and nearly sunk the ship (27'9" dwarves are fairly heavy I guess). So now,
not only do I get called Chadderly, but I also get insulted because I'm vertically challenged.
