Character Sheets

As some of you may know, Gary Gygax, the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, died last month. It will probably not surprise anyone to learn that I was a big D&D geek back in the day. Anyway, I recently came across some “celebrity character sheets” that had been created as a tribute to Gary Gygax; unfortunately I found them kind of sucky. To rectify this situation, I thought I would create some sheets for the denizens of Dennis’s Diary of Destruction, in honor of the man responsible for my spending so many sunny Saturdays in the basement killing kobolds and whatnot. Gary, these are for you!

  1. I went through that D&D phase with my son who is now 34 years old (yes, I look young for my age).

    Those are hilarious (however you spell it)!

  2. Several of my mates play D&D. Your character sheets are fab. I especially like the one for “Trouble.” Very cat-like. Purr-fect!

  3. Mom used to play Magic: The Gathering. She was excellent with Jaugernauts! and the black iris.

    Jim says: Ooh that’s so cool! I played MTG for years after my D&D time diminished to nothing. I used to annoy the crap out of people with my denial deck. Four Icy Manipulators, Psychic Venoms, Meekstone, Winter Orb, Counterspells and Power Sinks, Boomerangs, Norritts, Siren’s Calls, Tims (aka Prodigal Sorcerers) … My wife would only play burn decks, which I had to make for her, and when we did multi-player she would encourage everyone to gang up on me. Ah, good times!
