- least memorable characters you have played- least memorable characters you have seen when GMing
The Least Memorable was a Half Succubus Half Human assassin my DM rolled up as the daughter of my Anti-Paladin in 1e. I never liked the character and only played her when it was necessary to advance the story arc he was developing.
The least memorable I've seen played.. hmmm...This guy played once game with my group after being invited by another player. He was very evasive as to what class he was playing, nothing on his sheet gave much indication, either. It might have been a fighter. What I remember most about him was he had a deep metal canister lid (like the kind popcorn comes in around Christmas) and he rolled his dice in in. Every roll he'd shout, "Critical Success!". I finally called the game off and told my friend who'd brought him to take him home.
The most memorable was my first character I rolled up on my own, an Anti-Paladin in all evil campaign. So many fun times over the years with that character.
Another memorable character I played was also in DC Heroes. His name was Diehard and his whole schtick was he couldn't be harmed by anything. No superstrength, heat vision, nothing. He had a plasma rifle as his only offensive option. He once took a punch from Superman and had to take a cab back to the fight from where he landed, but he was unharmed.
The most memorable I've seen played... hmm.. that's a tough one. I guess it would have to be a character in the DC Heroes Superhero game named Mystique. She was a sorceress and I played a sorcerer based on Elric of Melnibone'. They ended up falling in love (in real life we were both married but not to each other) and we even roleplayed out a wedding and reception (a big bbq with all the team members in Justice League Canada...that was our organization). That was a lot of fun.
Another memorable one I saw played was this guy a friend brought over who bragged that his character was unkillable. This was in a 2e game when traps meant something and he died a horrible, rat filled death. He stormed out screaming incoherently and I never saw him again.

Sadly, even after election day there'll be just as much political hate and stupidity. It's never going away. So use that time machine to do something good, like proving Edison stole Tesla's ideas and fix the grievous crime committed against him. As far as pbp games go, there are several going on at anytime; just go to the PbP section and see if there are any openings.
The closest thing I ever came to a "common" tongue in my homebrew is a sign language called "Traders' Tongue", used by merchants, diplomatic missions, and adventurers. Most of the nations have their own languages and dialects. The history behind Traders' Tongue is it has its roots in a rebellion that overthrew a tyrannical empire centuries past. It was used to relay information in secret while in public places. It was called "Traitors' Tongue" in that period of history.
Off the top of my head, for pathfinder, I'd go with Kalindlara, Dungeonmastercal, Owen K.C. Stephens, or Mark Seifter; all of whom have shown through numerous posts a fundamental understanding of game mechanics, 'fun,' setting design, and general camaraderie. I'm not sure how many other posters I've seen enough content from that I'd be able to say with any degree of certainty.
I am really honored to be included in such amazing company. Thanks!
I'd play 1e again if I had my very first group together, but alas, I only know where one of those guys is and he no longer plays. But aside from that I really don't have any desire to go back to those days. Now one of my guys occasionally brings up how much better he liked 1e than Pathfinder, but he's a 47 year old guy going on 85, anyway.
Well, again I don't like leaving anyone out, but the two that seems to come to mind most (and it's because of interactions with them) are Jiggy and Mark Hoover. Jiggy because he ran an excellent PbP game where I proved my incompetence at such a game and would love to redeem myself in a face to face session, and Mark Hoover, whose descriptions of his classic style settings are dead on and very interesting.

Yep..that would amazing! lol
You didn't offend me at all, and I'm one of the ones who suffers from depression and anxiety. I may have left some folks off my list completely by accident, not by choice. There are so many great gamers on the forums that I couldn't remember every one that I'd like to play with. When I think of others I will add them to my list of people I'd like to play with. It is considerate of you to consider those who have these problems, though. Good on you.
I'm guessing (hoping) you meant me when you said "Dungeonmastercarl").... lol
Let's see, I'm sure I'll leave folks out so it's nothing personal, but here are a few folks:
Mark Hoover (His settings felt so real when he described them to me)
There are so many more whose names escape me at the moment. So much fun could be had with the astounding amount of imagination and creativity this board possesses.
Gonna have to go with what Ambrosia Slaad said, I'm afraid. I've never driven in mountains at all, just the low hills of the Ozarks. You can pretty much drive anything here during the winter if you're careful, and with climate change it rarely ever even snows here anymore.
I once worked in a video rental store (remember those?) and when we changed owners he decided we'd no longer carry Swedish Fish in the candy section, so I got a case of it to bring home. One of my players ate 11 boxes worth in one game. That many is not good for the bowels, he later found out.
I'll pass this along to him. I found the same spells while looking for such myself, but didn't think of the metamagics. It was kinda late and my depression has been eating away at me for a day or so. My thinking wasn't too clear at the time. Thanks.
I've had to put myself on a dice buying moratorium for awhile. I counted up the complete collections I have and I have 32 complete Chessex sets and two Game Science complete sets. This doesn't include the gallon glass jar full of mismatched, random dice I've acquired over the years from people getting out of the game and such. And I can actually, truthfully say I've only lost 6 dice over the years; I take that good care of them. I've given away a few sets to players or relatives (about 5 total), but for the most part I'll be buried with them.
In fact, a friend and I were joking this weekend about having our cremated ashes mixed with a hard resin and shaped into d20s to be given to friends after we die.
I have probably 80 to 85% of the hard copy issues they published, and I miss the monthly magazine I waited so eagerly for. And I particularly loved the 1e and 2e issues, because they not only included articles on mechanics but historical articles about different things, unlike the 3.x issues that dealt mainly with mechanics. And the covers! Oh, the covers! Every cover told a story in the 1e and 2e editions.
Sigh...for the old days.
We just came back from a walk, which 2 days ago she was so weak she could barely manage, and she even did her "treat dance" which she does after going walking. She was even playful about it, playfully growling and acting all "mean" and stuff until she got one.
Stop making sense!:)
I've had a severely sick dog since Wednesday and a severe case of GM's block for weeks. But suddenly, within 10 minutes I've written 8 pages of notes and come up with an adventure involving a vampire council, a lost city in the hollow, tropical, and primitive interior of my campaign world where it is eternally daylight and a lesson in humility for one of my players. Whew. I can finally sleep tonight. OH! I might even get to use the new Sanity rules!
