I came across these lurking in my Basic Dungeons & Dragons folder: three player characters from my first-ever D&D experience.
It was only a few days after Christmas, 1981, when I, my friend Brian Z., and my nephew John sat down to attempt our first D&D game (Moldvay Basic). John and I had already made our characters (two each) by the time Brian showed up. (Perhaps if we had rolled them up in front of Brian, our would-be DM, my main character, Moordow, would not have ended up quite so buff. /wink)
Unfortunately, I do not have John's characters, Cedric the Cleric and Armon the Annoying (m-u). (Armon's "annoying" label was added after the fact - after he had repeatedly proved himself to be a totally useless party member.) I do, however, have my second character and the two characters Brian ran in the game (as DM's in our games regularly did back in the day):
(I always envied Brian his cool and exceptionally neat handwriting; it made mine look like chicken scratch.)
