My Characters: Nark (the Archmage)

Some months ago, I posted a scan of my first ever character–Morgan Ironwolf. Well, this week I found myself leafing through my old character folder and I came across Nark (the Archmage).

Nark was a bit of a rapscallion. (I was 13 when I started him, so inevitably he was chaotic neutral so he could do what he wanted…)

Nark reached 16th-level before we finished the campaign, about which I remember surprisingly little. However, a close perusal of his magic items reveals he survived a certain 1st Edition module of repute. I won’t name the module in question, but the first person to do so correctly wins a free PDF of GM’s Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing!

So, without further ado: here is the back page of his character sheet.

If you think you know the answer to my question, just post in the comments below.

Good luck!

  1. Oh man, I remember those yellow character sheets! I have a folder somewhere with a few myself…

    And yeah, Tobm of Horrors. What else?

  2. The monocle is from “In the Dungeon of the Slave Lord,” iirc. 🙂

    Love this character sheet! Hardcore, too–32 hp at 16th level!!

    1. Blimey! That’s jolly precise–and correct! Can I offer you a runner’s up prize? Email me at creighton [at] raging swan [dot] com and I’ll send you a copy of GM’s Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing!

  3. We used blue sheets back in the late 70s or early 80s very similar to this one. Noted the date. That was about the time I was running a 1E campaign that has been my favorite and one that ran in various ways for maybe 8 years or so. Interesting character. Thanks for the good memories.
