Q

eleora asked:

what was your first rpg experience? how old were you?

A

Probably just starting junior high. It would either be a Car Wars Adventure Gamebook called Battle Road if you count that as an RPG, or the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles & Other Strangeness RPG if you don’t (My first character was basically Hawkeye except a Weasel).

L is for Lich.

I burned out my eyes

I cut off my tongue

I sealed them with all of the silver

and now I have none.

 - Mastodon, Black Tongue

H is for Harpy.

"Here the repellent harpies make their nests,

Who drove the Trojans from the Strophades

With dire announcements of the coming woe.

They have broad wings, a human neck and face,

Clawed feet and swollen, feathered bellies; they caw

Their lamentations in the eerie trees.”

 - Inferno, Dante

E is for Elemental.

"But come, hear my words, for truly learning causes the mind to grow. For as I said before in declaring the ends of my words: Twofold is the truth I shall speak; for at one time there grew to be the one alone out of many, and at another time it separated so that there were many out of the one; fire and water and earth and boundless height of air, and baneful Strife apart from these, balancing each of them, and Love among them, their equal in length and breadth.”

 - Empedocles, The Fragments
