What was your first character played.

Postby Gromikazer » Mon Nov 24, 2003 6:55 pm

I'm curious in regards to what people played first. I don't mean what was the first character you got to 50th after you "learned the ropes", but I mean what physically was the class you played.

Played a monk on sojourn1 before they were nerfed. Loved it because the monks were about 90% skills and only 10% dependant on equipment.

I recall it took 21pdays to get to 36th before they were nerfed.

Damn, xp-ing is much quicker these days!

Barbarian Warrior.

Still curse the day my brother said "Hey, I've been playing a text game kinda like D&D you should try it."

Must be some time around 1996?

Got him into mid 30's and zoning. Won an Ebony and a Flamberge in my mid twenty's and everyone I grouped with for exp was like "WOW!" Can't believe you have a sword that can blind mobs!" The people I was zoning with were laughing because they thought it was hillareous that I was running around with those two really top of the line swords.

Long time ago.

Grey Elf Ranger by the name of Celinon, whose name was french for something, or so Kia told me when he forced me to change it to Finlaria.

That character had the distinguised honor of being the first to die in the Sylvan Glades... damned werewolves.

Gurns the Monk. Sounds weird, doesn't it? Soj1, yah. Heh, I remember Riemann (cleric) and me killing dragons. Then monks got nerfed, then nerfed again. And then there was, Golto the Halfling Sorcerer. A lot of fun with that one. First song/story I wrote was about Golto.

Got lost and killed several times in Faang, rolled a human necro instead. Stopped playing for a few months, rolled a human sorc and did okay with that one.

My brother introduced me in Feb 1996 and told me to roll a Barbarian Warrior (Hometown was WD then I believe) named Jarek or something I can't remember anymore.

I got him to level 9 or 10 before trying my hand at a mage class and rolled a human sorceror named Endil Arianus. I got him to level 23 and never reached my goal of getting level 26 and fireball! I never even knew what stoneskin was heh.

Then in May of that same year I had the great idea of rolling a bard. My thought was that I would be able to fight and heal myself. Finally! I wouldn't have to sleep all the time. Little did I know such things were not allowed back then. Neverthetheless, I rolled up a half-elf bard (only race available) and created the name Tsaej by mixing around some letters I thought looked cool. I leveled quickly because bards were popular with the tanks and I became hooked on Mudding...seemingly for life *sigh*

Human monk named Kingu, then there was Lavey with 23 int and no delete option so I rolled Lavay with better stats but stuck with the 23 int.

What Thanuk is saying is that when he first made a warrior it filled the role of "hitter" which in the poll is listed as ranger/dire/monk and that monks were the "tanks". Should he go by the class or the desc of the class is what he is asking.

P.S. both your moms

I know what he was asking....he said he played a warrior first....So, he should ignore the tank/hitter class part and choose the option that has warrior in it....or maybe the original poster needs to clarify the question.

P.S. Your mom still owes me 100 bucks from the other night. :P
