Today is Dec. 16, 2014. I will update this date every time I add something to this blog/site. This is my 3rd addition/character. Today’s character addition is a human wizard named May-Ren.
This is simply a Tunnels & Trolls character of mine whose old character sheet is cluttering up my apartment. I don’t want to lose him, but I don’t want to keep the paper, so I’m putting the character here. You will note that the character name is kind of a play on my own first name which is Kenneth, and I often describe myself as a wizard, so now you know: this is one of my alter-egos or secret identities. (I may update this character from time to time if he ever has any more adventures or makes any progress.) Oddly enough, I forgot that I had this character, but didn’t forget the name. I used the same name as a Dragon Warmaster among Lerotra’hh’s high-ranking minions. Perhaps this character is what he pretends to be when walking the streets of Khazan.

HISTORY: Kennarith has gone on several adventures and always survived. He has a liking for elves and elvish things. His personal quest is for immortality, or at least more longevity than humans normally have, but he is getting old, and has never achieved high level status as a wizard.
And speaking of old Tunnels and Trolls characters, here is another one I found. This one belonged to Paul O’Connor and probably dates back to 1979. This is a 5th edition character, and so, not quite compatible with the modern game, but it would not be hard to add a WIZ and SPD attribute to the sheet and bring him up to date.

I still have a typed note from Paul with a little more info about his character. It says:
Dungeons he was spawned from are: 5 trips DED (Deathtrap Equalizer Dungeon), 2 BSP (Beyond the Silvered Pane), 3 Dargon’s, and 2 into Overkill (note: both trips into Overkill were made with groups of 12 levels of characters. Both times Lanact’oor was the only survivor.) Also, next to Instep du Brain-Brain, this is the highest level magic user that Sherman Oaks or Van Nuoys has spawned. Our moderated dungeons tend to be tough. Spells: Whammy, Poor Baby, Yassa Massa. Send him in door #3 of Tombs of the Gods, or if that is chosen, and door that hasn’t been. That’s about it, see you on the other side of the Tombs.

(This character may be used by anyone who wants to use him as a T & T delver. If he develops more personality, let me know, and I’ll update this record–Ken)
