My first character was a 5e Wood Elf Ranger, who had a moody broody backstory but not really an edgelord. Iwas playing with my wife's coworkers, we played 1 session and then never got back together again lol.

Hmm. Very first character was a draconic bloodline sorcerer named Bolverk. I think we managed to get that party all the way to level 12. This was an evil campaign, with lots of inter-party scheming and backstabbing, so the fact that he made it all the way to the end of the campaign was a miracle. I think I'm t only person who never had to make a new character that whole game. My favorite memory of that campaign is when I blew up the new guy, a drow summoner named Kollek Temall who's player was a bit of a prima donna. This guy did everything he could to get on my nerves. If I found a piece of treasure, there he was over my shoulder trying to con me out of it. After defeating a rival party, I decided to lot the wizard. She had A REALLY fancy spell book, but before I opened it I managed to detect the explosive rune etched into it. When Kollek saw all the gold and gems on the cover, he ran over and snatched it out of my hands. I acted angry and stormed off, safely around The other side of an overturned wagon. Kollek failed his reflex save, and Bolverk had roast drow for dinner that night.

( yes I was forced to play a wizard which I never wanted to play anyway) The Wizard was allowed 1 weapon a staff or knife. it's a wizard the staff seemed right. so we were about to leave town. when A 6 goblin raiding party attacked. 1 died by the barbarian's hands the other 5 all passed every other party member to attack the mage at the back mage 9 AC hmm goblinsword 10 attacks. 8 damage dead wizard. Didn't play any more end for a year. while everyone else played on I played neverwinter on a PC.

I barely remember my first character. He was a Half-Elf Fighter I believe. We had a Chaotic Neutral Gnome Illusionist-Theif in the party, more like an Assassin. This was back in about 1984, Rasgorn was DMing. I said something that irritated the Gnome, and he rigged poisoned darts in my backpack one night, so that when I put it on I would get stuck. The next morning my bright, shiny, optimistic first level Half-Elf put on his backpack and promptly fell over DEAD. LOL, then the rest of the party rifled through my gear.

Down the road a couple years a new character of mine, Killian Tollbeck the Highland rogue and Bard became lifelong friends with Dirk the Gnome.

My first character was an elf rogue named Takala, in a play-by-email rpg set in Thedas (The Dragon Age Setting) via yahoo groups. That game ran from 2011 to 2016.

Then in December of 2019 I sent a last post to the email list (before yahoo groups shut down), about my character several years later. Which kind of inspired the group to reform.

My first character was a half-elf bard named Kellen Bluewater. I like to re-use him from time to time, albeit with a backstory amended to include some of the rather unsavory actions that caused me to break off from that group. Let's just say they had a little too much fun torturing a prisoner and my character was stupidly too drunk to stop it. This is why I don't like playing games that involve players torturing NPCs for info.

LOL

I did that too, made the character a ghost that haunts his murderer from time to time.

My first character ever was for Traveller - a spacer named Farif who'd mustered out with a ship of his own (& payments to make LOL). Our GM had us find the Kinunir out in our travels and we boarded it and tried to salvage it.

That... did not go well. We could barely hold our own against the ship computer's anti-hijacking protocols, and the ship itself was a horror - dead crewmen's corpses just everywhere. When all was said and done, we didn't even have crew enough to run the ship. Good times.

My first AD&D character, though, was a half-elf fighter/magic-user/thief (I know) named Ruskin. He had a wide variety of adventures that went from being chased by a pack of werewolves & defending a farm from some aggressive bulettes single-handedly to convincing a tribe of orcs that he was a god. Along the way, he died & was reincarnated by a druid as a kobold, found the Invulnerable Coat of Arnd, and got swallowed whole by a purple worm (& cut himself free from the inside).

“The Leap” for the FASERIP Marvel Superheroes game. His only super power, as one might guess, was Leaping. The fun lasted until it was realized that technically every character had the leaping ability at a default of their Strength score, making my hero’s partner - “Massive Mark”, played by my older brother - notably better at my character’s only schtick. We continued on until I ran out of karma trying (unsuccessfully) to come up with power stunts that my brother couldn’t easily replicate. There was undoubtedly a bit of sibling rivalry at play, as we were 10 and 12 years old at the time.

My very first character was named Ged, a name I stole from A Wizard of Earthsea, which was one of my favorite books in middle-school. Like the character in the book, he was a practitioner of magical arts, learning from a master, though I'm not sure I ever defined who the master actually was.

He had an affinity for the element of fire, so most of his spells were pyroclastic in nature, and he also wielded a dark-iron scythe. He had spikey 'Goku-like' brown hair and 'emerald-green' eyes, though I think he must've probably looked like some kind of strange combination of Magus and Crono from Chrono Trigger. I feel like I even made a pic of it in MSPaint, but it has long since disappeared.

I didn't create this character for any specific game, but I used him several times when I first started playing D&D 3.0. Mostly, he originated as part of my online persona in Yahoo! Chats and Cheeta Chat, which is where I cut my RP teeth. And it was pretty much what you would expect, everything was completely over the top and all of our characters could do or were interested in doing everything; I think I ran a 'shop', which was also a fire lizard (Pern) hatchery, had an airship and we built a little town on a cape. It was fun times, I still have fond memories of that character and his friends.

Funnily enough, I don't really re-use him for anything, but I did put the town--long since abandoned and now nothing more than a ruin--in some of my homebrew. Never as any place important, just a locale that feels deathly quiet and instills a sensation of nostalgic sadness whenever someone visits. I called it the Valley of Silence.

My very first character was Olivine Feychild, my ham-fistedly named half-elf Druid. He was originally made for a 3.5e game at summer camp that I never actually got to play in. Poor guy was stuck in PC Limbo for a few years until 5e came out and I suckered a couple of high school buddies into helping me try it out. I was DMing at the time, but the players seemed outnumbered in the first few encounters of the game so I brought Olivine back as an NPC to reinforce them until they could stand on their feet.

He finally got his time in the sun in a 3.5 Chaotic Evil campaign put on by one of my college buddies. He played a misanthropic magical eco-terrorist bent on reclaiming nature from the abominable grip of civilization who would sneak into town, plant dozens of Tree Feather Tokens, then run through the streets shouting the command word causing trees to erupt through buildings and topple walls. Then his legions of woodland critters could storm the wreckage. He had and excellent death: for the last session our DM gave us a Deck of Many Things. One of his cards gave him a wish which he used to transform himself into an ancient copper dragon, then the next one imprisoned him in an extradimensional jail guarded by a powerful creature. This meant he was unable to draw his last card, which per the rules of the Deck magically drew itself and applied its effect, which was to rip out his soul and imprison it in a different extradimensional prison guarded by a different powerful guardian. Coolest death I've ever seen in a game.

Funny that's why I don't like playing games with drunk players characters... if played with any realism. they have negative dex int charisma wisdom. And only cause trouble.
