So, as I was going through all my old notes for previous incarnations of my D&D campaign, I got reminded of an old character concept. One that I wish I remembered earlier as now I really would love to try playing it again.
It's a concept of a sorcerer from 3.5 edition D&D, after they came out with the Complete Arcane book. He was a human, or possibly half-elf, that was afraid of the dark. Talking about extreme phobia. So he specialized in light and prismatic spells, with some fire and electricity-based ones as well. To keep the darkness away. This character, unfortunately, only saw 2 play sessions. And this character was the inspiration for an integral part of my campaign world (me adding 4 extra elements: Life, Death, Light, and Shadow).
Another old character, this of my younger sister, from back in 2nd edition. A female human fighter, with Str 18 (97). She managed to stop a swinging axe pendulum trap with her bare hands, to let the other characters go through the hallway.
So, what are some of your old D&D characters that really stick out in your mind? Really wish I could have remembered that light sorcerer character. Of course, it would require some "custom" spells to make it work. And by custom, I mean spells I pulled out of 3rd party publisher material. Alas, he will probably stay in memory. Anywho... SHARE!
