Who remembers their first day in Town?

I was just thinking randomly, and I remembered my first day in the town. I'd been lurking for a week or so, but had no character idea. And I was also reading a Drizz't book. I liked how he wasn't the norm for the drow race, because I like characters that go against the average, assuming they were well written. However, I don't like badly-done Drizz't clones. I'd roleplaying in my D&D group with a half-orc paladin who was very well done, when the idea hit me. A drow paladin. Different from both stereotypes.

And so I made him, and posted in three different threads in about the span of five minutes. I didn't understand continuity laws, until Amiria explained them to me. The rest is history.

Share your first time in town, and the events leading up to it here!
Tawmis

My first time was pretty interesting. I was randomly googling "Neverending Nights" as I do sometimes - and came across the site - and read a review from Vael. I absolutely loved her (? I assume her, dunno why?) brutal truth and feeling behind it - registered to the forum to address some of the things she had mentioned - and have enjoyed kind of lurking since (which was only a day ago... so not a lot of lurking under my belt... but plenty of gut under that belt of mine... time to diet again...)  Laughing
Nevrmore

Found Giantitp after Terraciano temporarily shut down his Keenspot forum and was happy to see it had an RP forum. Introduced two characters at once: Hawk Geldof and Descartes. Hawk spent most of his first day drinking until someone noticed him while Descartes pissed off three people in the span of a few hours.

Good day, all things considered.
Kantur

I'd been reading OotS for a while, oddly not ever even lurking in the forums until a friend who was in Town needed someone for an assassination, back when they were common place.
Kantur started out as exactly that - someone who was stealthy and willing to kill for money.  Heck, I didn't even know what race he was until I discovered the SRD and browsed it for something good and retconned the lack of demonic visage as being far enough down his family tree he was nearly human, and combined with a little luck, he appeared to be.  So slowly, he started to get more details, like rough class combinations, and little things only I knew about his history which've slowly been revealed.  I'm still not sure when he became Chaotic Good though, I seem to remember him starting off as closer to CE/CN...
Kyrian

I still recall that my first Town post was in the very first Trog's. I also recall I had been away from the forum for a few months. What I don't really recall is what I was thinking when I made that first post...

and here I am, 101 characters later, and STILL using Kyrian from time to time.
Vael

@ Tawmis- It might be my avatar. ^-^"
But you're correct- I'm female.
Well, transgender, if you want to get specific. But I try not to talk about that much.

*cough*
Anyways.
My first day in Town... I'm not quite sure what I was thinking. Maybe I wasn't. I saw Kyrian and Fenric duking it out with some characters in the street, so I had my character show up. Did some blatant godmodding. Was generally a weird faceless ninja guy- IE, the Face Ninja.
Gods I still hate that name.
It was actually a joke- just kind of weird, random stuff. I don't know how to explain it besides that one of my friends had this... weird obsession with faces. Somehow I added ninja to it, and this fictional, strange entity known as Face Ninja showed up in our conversations and minds. He stole faces. He was a ninja. You couldn't ever figure out where he was because he was so damn good at disguising and take the place of other people that he could be your best friend and you'd never know.
So, since it was my user name at the time, and since I was bored and wacky and not trying for anything cool, I created him in Town.
Then he evolved into Earin, who was a much more satisfying character.
Kyrian

I remember that!
Fenric

My first post was in Sneak's Milk Bar in June, 2006.  My brother had told me about GitP, and I had been lurking since November 2005.  Somehow or other, I missed the very beginning of Town.

Anyway, one of Cabbage Thief's characters brought a cursed polymorphing wand in and turned Indurain into a cow.  Wxdruid's Rain ate the wand, and I eventually fled to Trog's.
Darkblade

Lets see it was almost a year ago when I made Darkblade and Virus and sent them off to Trog's. Darkblade was still a true neutral mercenary with an evil sword...cliché o-rama  Razz

Anyways he started talking to Czar/Tom (Geo) and among other things may have accidently influenced the creation of District (Necro). Still my most fond memory of Town.
Moxie

Hm... I don't remember specifically my first day, but I do know that it was in Saurous' mage guild place as an off-shoot of AMEN's first invasion of the Town. ((We'd hit it a few times since then.)) With it being composed almost entirely of AMENites, and almost in a way confirming AMENite's superstitions of the Town, it eventually died. Even at that point I played my most and least popular character, the Pogomancer Rex Idiotarum. It was not until months afterwards, with the introduction of the Enupnion forum that I became re-interested in taking the Town. Even at that point, Rex never left the Tavern, but eventually he found friends among the regulars there, and then ended up converting to a full-time townie, and all the drama involved.

I'm here rather than the playground because of numerous betrayals and offenses... Needless to say, I'm neither aloud back, nor do I want to.
Orange Zergling

I remember introducing Oskar by having him walk into Trog's with a Zergling egg (<.<), before I had even named him (>.>), so I ended up taking something out of the player's handbook.

I also vaguely remember having Mind Flayer and Imp characters back in the Lykan/Mortia days, but not many specifics.

I also blatantly godmodded but I thought it was justified by having my characters take damage as well... at the time, anyway.
wxdruid

So far as I can tell, here is where wxdruid showed up, still nameless at that time.  Later I named her Gwen.
Fenric

Thanks for the searching tip!

I started Here (Sneaks' X), about 2/3 of the way down the page

I fled to Here (Trog's VII).  Near the bottom.
Hawkeye

Hmm...I was in the silly message boards at the time that Lykan and Mortia had the arena fight, but didn't get involved in the very start up of it. My first post was in Sneak's Milk Bar II (and just for the record, my first several posts were cringingly awful). Oddly enough, that was on my birthday.
Keledrath

Although she's probably forgoten it, my first IC post included about 10 major godmods against Cassie.  I also made the major mistake of having Shadowbow in the Hamlet.
Lord Vader

I went around, found Baron Law just in time for Raistlin to own him, and then proceeded to rapid-fire into him for a few minutes until he teleported away, somehow destroying his armor in the process.

Pretty uneventful.
Uberblah

Well, DeBunny showed me Town on GitP over a year ago... Wow... I can't believe it's been that long already... I created a character and brought him into Town and into the tavern. My first few days were uneventful, but about a week and half later, I got Ishmale into a fight with Aerin and Vera I think. It was fun. DeB was there too with Xeni (Who was Chaotic Bob at the time). 'Twas an interesting first fight. I think I had to log off before it ended though...
Lykan

My first day in town... I think a scythe was sticking out of Lykan's kidney.
Artemis

Well, read OotS for a long while and wandered onto the forums. As I was reading, I saw in people's sigs things about "Town." Eventually, my curiousity got the better of me and I mozied over to the sub-forum and was hooked ever since.

I took a character I had used in NWN and tossed him into Trog's, because everyone knows the best place to start is a Tavern. About ten minutes later, Raril was being sniped at from the streets by Bookboy's Shadowbow. He nearly got mugged, ran to the Police Station to scare off the thugs , not knowing it was under the control of the Fourth Empire. There, he got shot at, again.

All in all, a very exciting day for poor Raril.
Lord Vader

Oh yeah, I remember that! The arrows that flew through the corpse golem. Poor Raril.  Laughing
Artemis

Hey, that's right! Val was born that day. Osnagard got a new character out of that fight.

Ah, Good times...
The Bushranger

It took me a while to get the hang of Town over on GitP, but once I did I came up with Orion and brought him in. Trog's, of course. I don't think very much happened for awhile, only a few minor interactions - I think Gwen was the first person other than the NPC staff who he actually spoke with. I actually didn't mind too much, I actually didn't plan on interacting too awful much.

Then he became involved in Plot after meeting Maia. And things took off from there. Razz
Xaspian

I seem to remember I started with Pelgof quietly reading a book in the corner of Trog's... Then rushing out when he realised that he wasn't in a library. Then he went and actually found the library, and probably scribbled something in the margins of some random book.
atreyu_the_masked_llama

Balthor and I had started a mini Feud in stabbity death, and when Sneak started his Holy House of Sneak, both Balthor and Lander signed on to be official llama hunters of the Holy House of Doll Humpers Sneak.

Naturally, we had some hostility, so I decided to make them all look bad. When I showed up I was promptly attacked by his ungrateful servants and eaten by his pet dragon Saithis.  I reappeared outside and came back only to be eaten again.  After about 5 eatings, I finally found a place inside the belly of the beast to stay safe from the acid, until the fumes got to me and I started hallucinating.  After that, Saithis placed me under her protection and kept the hunters off of me.  That was when I met Libris and Phoenixineohp too.
Castaras

My first day was pretty boring...I got my character idea written up, read through the rules many many many times(I get nervous..<.< >.>), then wandered around town. Evil Cassie disappeared into the countryside for the night, and I remember seeing Timberwolf starting out? with Snowraven/Nightstar(can't remember which one...<.<).

Second day was fun. Attacked Inari's with my Lolth-possessed Cassie. Loads of cliche drama and fighting. ^.^
DeBunny

I popped into Town somewhere in the middle of Rebo's Nameless plot, I think it was called.
Little black things of nothingness.
My character, Rizzen I believe, was chasing one and trying to busily hack it to pieces. Without much success.
My writing style was amusingly poor, but I don't remember the state of my godmodding capabilities. I may have done it a lot, or a little.
I just know I wasn't too grand of a writer. =P
Baeleck

Oh, first time in town. I was in Trog's (of course), and I believe I first encountered Metakirb, and then Libris and Greeny.

I recall the way I posted was good enough, but my dialogue was something to be desired. I still stand by my belief that my characters' dialogue is the weakest part of my RPing.
Deadly

My first appearance in Town was on the 17th of july 2006, 03:31 AM in Trog's Tavern XXIV page 12. Atleast that's what my notes say, I'm too lazy to go find it.

I'd been lurking for a while at the time, but eventually decided to join the fun actively. It was at a time where I had some odd "fascination" with minotaur-like creatures, so obviously one of my characters was such a beast. I'd love to rethink that decision, but it's pretty pointless now. The other character, Ilias, was based on a dream and he was never really very well thought out, which is evident from how many times he's changed since his first appearance. He turned out to be a fairly successful character anyway, though.

All I remember is that I had those two characters appear randomly in Trog's, hunting some thief. I had some idea about where that was supposed to go, I think, but nothing ever really came of it.

Looking back, I'm rather surprised at how poor my english was at the time. Never thought I'd improved that much. Not much of a writer either, which is still the case I think.
The Chilli God

Don't remember much of my first days in Town. I do remember 'migrating' there from the WotC roleplay subforum (Specifically, Gareth's Arena) because I'd gotten fed up with the people there and their "I'm not going to tell you what the building looks like until you assume something incorrect about it!" and - so I later found out - Jerkassery overpoweredness. Psychic kobolds pwning Mephistopholes and so on.

I know I introduced MURK first, had him walk around streets and attend some Rights For Goblins party that got bombed or something, then I kind of forgot to do anything with him for a little while.
Or something.
Destro Yersul

I remember it well. Destro walked into the tavern one day to find a decapitaded wolf, an odd sort of altar thing, and the best drinks in Town. He was mortal at the time, which makes him probably the youngest immortal in Town, at 43 or so.
Wukei

I remember Wukei sailing in and offering portraits...good way for me to practice.  Sneak's was my first.
The_Librarian

My first post was at the arena I believe.  I was little over-eager and I think I annoyed a few people, but I teamed up with Klaine (one of Lykan's chars) to defend the head of Baron Samedi (I can't remember where the rest of him was at the time).  Greeny's first post was in Sneak's Milk Bar.
Hawkeye

He was whining for some tea if i remember correctly...
NecroPaladin

Yeah, I had Namesake, priest as he is, preside over some funeral.  Figured it'd be a nice way to introduce him.  And with all the murdering and dying and otherwise deathly business that my characters do, it looks like the good times keep on rolling.
ValdisRequiem

My first day in Town...
Hitomi scared Raril and Atreyu and promptly got into a fight with Rex.
It was one of many to follow.
Metakirb

First day... first day... oh yeah

Metakirb arrived, and fell unconcious, that was about it for my first day
nightwing

Well, it was about a year ago now...I had first seen Amira in the SMB forum and had seen the town on a few occasions. I decided "what the heck" and made a character that was a butler (she actually made me a chamberlain) and so Tereal was born. I then had him fight one of Raistlin's characters. That fight was my first god mod (congrats Raist, you were the first to tell me I was a god moder)...I got so embarrassed that just left the computer and went to bed. I didn't come back for a week.
DivineAmour

I believe that was Estone who you fought.
nightwing

Yeah, that sounds right...I'm still a bit embarrassed.
Renom

I recall that Vael traced my IP adress and then interrigated me on how I found out about Town.
Exachix

I sat Exachix in Inari's, watching.

That's it. Basically.
Fenric

Behind the cola machine, for several weeks.  Smile

Then we convinced you to get involved, only to get killed by a smoke thing.

Heh. I remember that. I was there too.

------------

Aaaanyway.

First day... Yes, I had Draken summon his castle in the countryside, then move to Chilli's orc camp to see if the moronic proto-hominids had piled some interesting tome sin their raids.

At leastthe orcs made a fine meal for the hydra. Also whatched a fight between Nightwing and Dartonus.
The Chilli God

Serves me right for not making every orc soldier in that camp into a paragon of orcish soldier-ness. With arcane powers that could level buildings in seconds. And 200rps machine cannons with adamantine bombshells. And ultra-radar powers.

Everyone killed the orcs. Everyone.

Heh heh heh, my 1st day, I pissed off Wukei's Mikhail by being very friendly with a girly character. Then she disappeared for ages and I thought I'd pissed her off and she'd taken it personally. (I was very new and didn't know people and circumstances then). Then I tried to drop a grenade on a half warforged halflings head as she tried to kill llama.

I remember the midgets having a slapping match with Cassie and her getting arrested early on as well as the numerous Ilvari (see Cassie's avatar for details) ego prodding with a pointy stick times.

Happy days.

Iames and Aerin have him beat, I'm afraid. They were both in their late 20s when they became immortal.

Here's my first day. I RP'd a bit with Hawkeye and Wukei, fought a thingy, and then disappeared for 2 months.

Oskar was 19 at first and I believe his brother was ~17.

Now they're about 20-21 and 18-19, IIRC. Although, I haven't Town'd in several months, so I dunno if that counts or not. Am considering coming back though...
Kyrian

You better OZ...
Orange Zergling

I feel rather sheepish though because I think my writing kinda sucks... but that's another discussion, I guess.
