Mine was rolled up probably a week or two after the Nth time seeing the 80s Excalibur movie. I played a necromancer with a chrome dome just like Merlin's. This was way back in 2E when parts of the rulebook read like an engineering textbook and you had to roll for hit points for your first level and all of that, so maybe jumping right into the thick of things with a spellcaster wasn't so hot. But I got my licks in with chill touch like a boss.
I don't remember muich else about him, maybe we never really played much after that first time with those characters. But I do remember it was my childhood friends Nick and Chase who introduced me to the game. I was 12, and they had moved away five or six years prior but we eventually reconnected when I was in middle school. Obviously, it changed my life for the better.
