Human conjurer, but I completely forget the name. I knew that having that frontal lobotomy would mess me up one day...

My very first character was a human warrior named Khorad. I got him as high as level 8 before The Dream.

My first serious character (i.e., I got him above 40) was a human paladin named Kyldrin. I later re-used the name for a dwarf warrior, and after running into Kildran (aka Gormal, Nermal, Goat-boy) and deciding the names were too similar, I decided to switch out to Vandic for Soj2...

...and that's where I am today.

Hrmm.... some elf Sorc that I rolled to play with my friend. I spent 1/2 hr trying to figure out what those red shapes were around me, then I gave up and rerolled in WD after getting frustrated because none of them responded to my requests for help :P

First character on SojIII..Branthur.

First character? Malrath, barb warrior on Torilmud. Think I got to 35th level with him or something? Got tired of not bein able to heal myself, and rolled Branthur for the first time...

(not counting my actual first character on Torilmud, since he was a human warrior with a con of 50 that never made it past 3rd level. :roll: )

Shraddack I think his name was, human warrior (because that's what the help files recommended). I was used to... muds of a different style. I petitioned a question and mystra essentially told me to eat shit, so I wrote a big long letter on the fountain board about how much Sojourn sucked and deleted my character.

True story.

I came back a month later and rolled Ragorn, didn't petition under any circumstances, and got to level 38 before Mystra outcasted me and set my hometown to Calimsham Desert.

Postby Todrael » Sat Aug 09, 2003 2:12 am

A half-elven ranger that lived in Leuthilspar. I had lots of fun running from the elite guards after they assisted a kooshie dog and power word blinded me. It was my first introduction to learning how to map out mud directions in my head, so I could find the inn and rent to get rid of the blindness. I got up to the prestigious level of 6 before I became too frustrated at the loss of my bronze longsword to a commoner that kept getting assisted. I then started rolling up numerous different character types, trying to find the perfect one, settling on a Paladin, which I got to level 37 before Toril went down about 3 years later. I never played Sojourn2, and Todrael is the only character I wanted to play for Sojourn3, drow necromancer even during alpha testing, attaining level 38 through hard work before beta opened.

My first was an assassin named Azatha or something. Only got to level 6 or so. Then went anti-paladin whose name I forget. Played an anti until bloodstone came in at like level 22 or so. Got sick of dying to insane/watcher combo so rolled up a troll shaman named Wharog which is when I finally figured stuff out.

At level 11 he got lost in the faerie forest, so in frustration was abandoned for a human druid.

Oddly enough, my first character on Sojourn was... Sylvos the half-elf ranger.

Who, upon creation so bloody long ago, read the whole disclaimer, saw that it was a Roleplay mud and proceeded to argue for 5 minutes with the ranger guild shopkeeper for being a racist bastard and not serving half-breeds.

I've strayed over the years, dabbled in many and varied but ultimately, Sylvos is still me :)

Tatya, grey elf ranger.

I'd wanted her to be beautiful and dangerous, but she was a bit of a wuss. I rerolled her, asking Arigon to hold her things, and she wasn't so bad after that.

After he hit 50 i rolled a druid Lyena. she hit 47 before i took a six year break, came back on soj3 and rolled Tiiani 34 ranger (omg rangers suck. Cept for weywey cuz hes supah ranger) and rolled Dala so that i could get zoning asap!. After Dala it was Malia then Lyena, then Pava and now Elasa... the journey never ends!

My first character was an elven sorcerer. I figured out how to light my torch and tried to scribe my spells, but I needed both hands to hold the quill and the book, which meant I had to stop using the torch and the room with the guildmaster was always dark... After quitting the elf, I made a barbarian warrior named Drato.

My first character was a human paladin named Iaiken (on soj2 where paladins REALLY sucked and used thier horses as tanks) I got him upto level 41, found out that an average statspread of 74 in my primary stats was abhorant, I rerolled for MUCH better but only got to level 33 when the mud went down... *wipes away a single tear*

I used to help nilan work his alignment towards good and have LONG moral debates, man that boy can spout debaucheries, but it was fun.

Xisi.. wasn't sang's duergar conj garzirgirar? :D

Um.. first char.. troll shamaness.. can't remember name (this is gonna drive me nuts forever). Got bored being in ghore alone all the time and waiting for Belarn, Grungar, Bafu, or Zira to come home and pay visits, so rolled a grey elf (yeah that was a big change there :P:P:P:P) named Synafae. Played both off and on for a bit.

I remember when Nangar, the Twilight wielding ogre, had 50+ damroll and that blew everyone's minds! :D

Toril I was antipaladin named Natashia. I had a BLAST RP'n with her - she was totally based on Callisto from the Xena show, I even had all kinds of wavs going off with her voice. Mmmmmm She's still my idol! I pretty much just hanged out with a RL friend doing BGR and RP'n most the time He played a necro, can't remember the name tho. I still remember getting into an RP debate with another Anti about how I could love Loviatar for all the joy and happiness she brought me. hehehehe I'm pretty sure she's what got me hooked on evil RP. :D

Soj2? I honestly can't remember any char names I played. Guess cuz I didn't play it all that much, and well.. rolled everything under the sun and just couldn't find a nitch I liked. Guess I just wanted to be a drow. Left before Dk ever went in. Heard a rumor drow were in, came back no mud. :cry:

Soj3? Heard it was coming back, and they had drow again! Figured I'd be a lone most the time as usual and necro's always rule for that + the RP of being a lich excited me. So first day rolled Llaaldara drow necro. Badda bing bling bling.

As for the rumor...
No I'm not now nor have I ever been Mystra :!:

My first character was Zagaz, in the current incarnation of the mud. Although he was first a drow warrior, I liked it, but then saw clerics in action, and I play them alot in my rp group, so I deleted and rerolled as a cleric.

After a long break, I am back, was 39th for well over 8 months, almost got 41st...so excited.

So who wants to help me get plane shift?

Postby Skror » Sun Aug 10, 2003 3:15 pm

My first serious character was Skror a troll warrior whom I got to level 47? I believe way back on Sojourn1 when monks were still in. Was in a little guild called The Blood Horde. Crimson Sigil was another guild that was active during that time period. Ah the good ol days. I've just started to play again and have an ogre warrior named Grronk.

First char was Silverast Rubicyn, Grey Elf sorc :) Got him to 47 on Toril after playing a few years, then got him to 49 on Soj2 as an invoker. On soj3 I retired the name and made my first char Saerian. Then I ditched the useful char for a bard... Long live bards!

First char was Sarvis, somone took me to podville and leveled me to like 6 in a couple hours. Then I came back the next day to find my character didn't exist! Apparently something bad had happened and a lot of high level chars had gotten screwed, so they restored everyone's pfiles from an old copy which didn't include mine. :(

The really bad part was that I wanted to just get on and ask what had happened, so I rolled up the char with the same name and just took the first stat roll, so his stats sucked! Cyric wouldn't let me delete the char either so I could reroll him after I found out what happened...

Mt very first character ever on Soj3 Was like 3or 4 years ago, named Kakip. He was a Dorf warrior and got to the mighty level of 21. He spent most of his time in bar drinking though.
Then i had an elf ranger. and a elementalist, and a paladork!
Finally after leaving and never having a HIgh character i rolled Golnol. and he was my first REAL character.

My first char was a barb shaman named Raskan, in August 1995. He was the first shaman to ever hit 40th, and believe me it sucked..worst class ever! It's amazing to see how far they've come. He was in Legion of Chaos, along with Serro and a few other folks. I was finally done with dying and losing all my eq, even though steel dog collars didn't amount to much.

So I rolled Gaban, my first troll warrior, who lived a fruitful life of about 6 months, with the help of Serro eqing him somewhat and then Dark Alliance coming about. I never managed to get him past 26th, I couldn't seem to stop dying...*stare*. Having a dexterity of 29 didn't help much either. :P

So then I rolled Targsk, who most of you know still to this day.

Eventually I got tired of dying again (never could get him to 50th, managed to hit 48.9 at one point), and decided to take up another class to play whenever there was an overabundance of warriors. That was where Yasden came about, circa early 1997.

And now, here I am today...still dying. I probably hold the record for most deaths throughout a mudding career by a long shot!
