     This section is devoted to a record of TRPG (Tabletop Role-Playing Game) firsts. Of course, the entries below are only valid from the perspective of certain gamers – there is no way to know if, for example, Moresco the Paladin was the first player character ever to cure the common cold; but he was the first PC I ever witnessed do it. This archive tells many stories: it would take many countless hours of explanation to describe the situations of the entries in any detail. This speaks to their cultural richness. Entries appear alphabetically…assuming Pip got that right? Enjoy! *If you’d like to add your gaming group’s records to this list, contact us here and let us know: Contact Form

Player Character (PC) Records

General Records and Feats of Renown

Aarwen the porcupine wild mage. The first PC wizard to lose control of his familiar and fear to give it orders. Actually, it wasn’t free from his control, it just threatened that it was. Of course we’re talking about Pepe the wild magically generated stuffed skunk.
Aarwen the porcupine wild mage. First Dungeons and Dragons 2.x player character to die from particle weapon fire.
Amorphaeous Antilles Most times having charged bravely, without thought to his or his companion’s safety, at a moment’s notice, headlong into battle.
Amorphaeous Antilles The most skilled player character ever with the Horgard sword.
Amorphaeous Antilles The PC having regularly cleaned the most pounds of gore off his body, weapons, equipment and armor.
Arineon Divinsecula Most number of hit points for a player character in a Mike Van Ness campaign: 211.
Arineon Divinsecula Best initial words spoken in-character by a Dungeons and Dragons 2.x player character ever See quotes list here.
Arineon Divinsecula First player character to defeat a super-powerful Yugloth by turning it to stone with a decapitated medusa head
Arineon Divinsecula First character to attack someone with a chest of drawers from an elevated position. The target: an NPC leprechaun named Dartagneous. The chest was dropped at him from the top of “The Anti-magic tower.”
Arineon Divinsecula Most number of wild surges generated by a player character: nearly infinite.
Arineon Divinsecula First character to claim to have created all magic and to believe he had created all magic.
Arineon Divinsecula First PC to possess a useful amount of “aardvark wisdom.” This was gained from a wild surge in the context of magic beans, where a cosmic aardvark arrived and lectured on the secrets of the campaign for over three hours.
Arineon Divinsecula First PC to provide a language lesson (albeit forcefully) with a short sword.
Arineon Divinsecula First to pave an entire river completely over with a Roman road. This was of course the result of wild magic.
Arjuna the mutant raccoon Most consecutive player-kills in one role-playing session: 3. Among the victims were Thelma the LE drow priestess/3, Toshimitsi-yuki the spirit folk fighter/psionicist 3/3, and “Joe Schmoleon” the CE narcoleptic dwarf fighter/3.
Arjuna the mutant raccoon Lowest sustained Dungeons and Dragons 2.x edition armor class ever: -18. A combination of Dragonscale armor with a base AC of -5, a shield +3, shield specialization (shield’s bonus to AC increases to -5), a 19 dexterity (-4 AC), the swashbuckler -2 AC bonus, and the Radar Superpower active (-2 AC bonus).
Arjuna the mutant raccoon Most min-maxed player character ever appearing in an Ed Broughton campaign.
Arjuna the mutant raccoon Most ridiculous single hoard of coinage ever recovered by a player character: 5,369,491 gold pieces, 671,186 silver pieces, 335, 593 platinum coins. This wasn’t counting the other aspects of the hoard, “then there are the other trinkets, the nick-nacks…” This all came from a dragon who died in less than one combat round!
Arnrock Niphraem The first wild mage ever in the game world of Archelonia.
Arnrock Niphraem First wild mage ever to endure a Michael Van Ness homegrown wild surge table, and to roll the “four-sided of doom.”
Arnrock Niphraem First wizard to engage in a dramatic magical duel with an imp wizard
Arnrock Niphraem Melted the most cavaliers with “friendly fire” wild magic: 10
Arnrock Niphraem The first player character that was related to another player character in a Michael Van Ness campaign. He was the brother of Moresco.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” First Dwarf (or ember dwarf) to voluntarily leave his armor behind while entering a dangerous situation, at the advice of elves. One elf was actually a polymorphed devil trying to kill off the party, the other was Ecthelion the wood elf.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” Most tactically unsound duel participant ever. In the duel in question Bacolith, several levels more experienced than his opponent, managed to incapacitate this foe…and still lost the battle, preferring to lecture while his opponent beat him near to death with a katana.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” First player character to die with Highlander Immortality. Cause of death: leaping into a prismatic sphere two times in one round, and being rifted away to the elemental plane of vacuum.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” First character ever to die by exposure to vacuum.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” Most unintentional forms taken long-term during a Dungeons and Dragons 2.x campaign: 7. These included earthworm, flowers, yippy-dog, leprous dog, bronze dragon, twin bronze dragon duplicates.
Bacolith “the ever-changing” First PC to wander unintentionally directly into a Manticore.
Bahari the Irda monk Most ridiculous initial 3.5 D&D; player character stats ever offered as “actually rolled”: Str 18, Dex 21, Con 20, Int 21, Wis 19, Cha 23! This occurred in one of Zeb’s 3.5 games; the player later claimed not to have understood that you took the highest three dice of the four rolled; despite these stats, the monk lived a short and violent life.
“Butlick” the cleric Most ridiculous player character name ever. It might be hard to accept that someone actually called their character this, but I have witnesses.
Character 1.0 (half grey elf swashbuckler) First PC to dual wield chalice and broom stick. This was the first character created in “The Amnesia Campaign,” and never had a working name. He wielded the chalice (which was silver) and the broom stick (which was wood) to try and hurt a supernatural creature apparently immune to standard metal weaponry.
Character 3.0 (Ed Broughton) First kobold alchemist/monk player character. This was the third character created in “The Amnesia Campaign,” and lacked a working name. His species and class were randomly determined.
Corthal “the great defender” First D&D; character to get hit with a depleted-uranium 30mm machine gun round (and survive). This occurred in the same battle Gunther died in; the round hit him in the chest, and temporarily warped his magical chain mail. Of course the impact rolled him across the room and stunned him, taking the air out of his lungs.
Corthal “the great defender” First player character to engage in sexual relations with an NPC who was formerly (and originally) a bird.
Corthal “the great defender” First player character to earn a “marathon point.” This “conditional fate point” was earned after Corthal outran an insane and hungry purling PC named Rascarr after a more than twelve mile chase.
Corthal “the great defender” First Dungeons and Dragons PC to slaughter a Rifts-Dragon. This achievement was the result of a critical hit from Corthal’s potent bow. The dragon had over 5,000 hit points.
Corthal “the great defender” First player character to get beaten up and dispossessed by Mountain Gorillas.
Corthal “the great defender” Most number of times having threatened fellow player characters with arrows to the knees: a lot
Dalorl Most beholders, gibbering mothers, and other aberrations engaged in one single battle: 72 There were exactly 17 beholders, 15 observers, 12 eyes of Roth, 17 other beholder-kin, and 11 gibbering mouthers!
Dalorl First wizard to have a familiar with 199 hit points. The familiar’s name was Medjanjaf, and he was a 3.5 Storm Giant polymorphed into a large house cat.
Deynada Skoolyatoodeth, the mutant raccoon First Heroes Unlimited player character to hide his arsenal in a U-Haul Self Storage Lot
Elegyn the diviner Most ridiculous, initial role-played action in Dungeons and Dragons ever. Here’s the story: upon arriving in the Twilight Faerie Realm she arrived with a group of dead ironfang. After detecting magic on the area, she noticed that one of the ironfang’s elven longswords was fairly magical (+2 actually). Frustrated, the player asked me “well, is any of the bark on the surrounding trees magical? It’s not? Well damn.” And she walked away, leaving the longsword where it lay, telling no one about it!
Elegyn the diviner Most futile final action by a PC ever in the history of tabletop gaming. Covered in green slime which was dissolving her flesh, her eyes melting and sizzling away to nothingness and alone in the dark with seconds to live, her player announces that she will sit down and try to memorize a first level spell. After the DM explained the futility of this course of action, the player said, “Well, I’m going to try.” Surprise: she died a few seconds later.
Flann the druid. First level one druid to simultaneously dismount and kill (with one hit each) multiple, mounted, lance-wielding higher-level cavaliers with a quarter staff and an AC of 8 in a single battle while quoting from Pulp Fiction.
Funkbacka Wookie having hit on the most non-wookie females ever in the history of tabletop gaming.
Funkbacka Arguably the first wookie role-played with “soul.”
Galvan “Cock-Diesel” Guardian of Minstael. Greediest player character ever in the history of TRPGs.
Galvan “Cock-Diesel” Guardian of Minstael. PC having lost the most parts of his anatomy in battle in any TRPG campaign, and having survived to tell the tale. These include one or more legs, several fingers, and at least two parts of arms. All were replaced or regenerated.
Gunther S. Thompson Most outmatched player character in the history of Dungeons and Dragons, possibly even in the history of tabletop role-playing. In the moment of his death, his AC (10) exceeded the value of his hit points (8), he was naked, out of drugs (which he needed to imbibe to use any of his psionics), and caught in the open by an extra-dimensional, futuristic, Urban combat Mech with and AC of -21, 2,380 hit points summating all locations of it’s body, and the firepower of a small fantasy nation of high-level wizards. The robot’s hit roll (based on a 2E D&D; thaco of -1) hit by more than 20 including bonuses and cut poor Gunther in half with a laser that simultaneously incinerated him.
Gunther S. Thompson First D&D; character to die by heavy laser fire originating from a Mech.
Herthjaff “the dueler” First 2nd Edition D&D; character to be critically hit by a large oar and take no actual damage or negative effect.
Herthjaff “the dueler” First 2nd Edition D&D; character to have a note on his character sheet that he was “tasty to Hook Horrors”.
Ian Kaplan First 3.5x D&D; player character to successfully apply skill ranks in soccer to a combat situation.
Ian Kaplan Longest distance on a punted Thri-Kreen opponent: 8.63 meters.
Ian Kaplan First player character to yodel during combat.
Ian Kaplan First player character to pirouette away from an enemy in a combat scene. Truth be told, both this and the yodeling were the result of mind control.
Ian Kaplan First player D&D; player character to specialize in assault rifle.
Kincade “The Dark Jedi” First PC to methodically kill a kitten with a lightsaber. “It was surgical even…”
Kincade “The Dark Jedi” First PC to be critically hit by a kitten, who removed his ear-flap. See the previous entry…
Klesche Toan Oldest Purling player character ever. His nickname was, of course, grandpa.
Klesche Toan First player character to be kicked into unconsciousness by a kobold while tied and bound. The kobold came scampering up like a soccer player and booted the cat’s consciousness away in one full on power kick.
Korath Feldenhammer First to detect evil on a television set. There was a faint emanation. This device was located in a wizard’s abode in Wonderland, which was quite modern and properly wired to specifications.
Lacklan Saberhagen The absolute most bad ass human single-class fighter ever in the history of tabletop gaming.
Lacklan Saberhagen First player character to deep-kiss a medusa during combat. He didn’t turn to stone or get bit by her hair-snakes: she even enjoyed it.
Lacklan Saberhagen First player character to save a companion from a coup de graw from a foe by turning said foe to stone inadvertently with a medusa head.
Lacklan Saberhagen First PC to regularly and successfully use his sword equally well as either a melee weapon or a projectile.
Lacklan Saberhagen First player character that really didn’t need anything more than weapon specialization…
Lacklan Saberhagen First player character to talk trash to more than one Pit Fiend.
Lacklan Saberhagen First D&D; 2.x edition human PC to attain a comeliness score of 21.
Lacklan Saberhagen First player character ever to start with the psychological traits daring, impatient, rude, active, and sexy!
LORD GORLAC II First D&D; character to speak to someone claiming to be his deity via cell phone taken off the body of a level 5 lawyer.
Lord Nymhrath du Conar Silrith First player character to use bunnies offensively in a death illusion.
Lord Nymhrath du Conar Silrith First rock gnome to avoid death at the hands of a drow who charmed him by resorting to romantic and sexual techniques.
“Luckslinger” Worst single-scene, deliberate use of a super-vehicle in Heroes Unlimited. With his opponent concealed in total cover behind any one of several large desert rock formations, he continued firing particle beams into the area blindly at a mutant animal while parked along side the road and in full view of local Police, who were not supposed to know he was a super agent. The mutant animal was able to easily target the vehicle, and an altercation began between “Luckslinger” – an awful name by the way – and the cops. I should also mention that there was no reason for “Luckslinger” to attack the mutant animal in the first place…
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. Most wanted (by the authorities) character ever in a Heroes Unlimited world.
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. First Heroes Unlimited character to have the in-game governor of a state (New York) call out the National Guard and declare martial law for their direct actions.
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. The first player character to kill a bionic demon with a stick he found on the ground. Miyamoto Musashi step back…
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. The first character to riverdance over to an opponent and behead him from behind with magical swords.
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. First PC to engage in a mortar duel.
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. First Heroes Unlimited character to be critically hit by twin .50 caliber machine guns, each firing 100 rounds, and survive
Mighty Quinn Machismo “X”. Absolute most feared Heroes Unlimited character ever. Robotic super-agents, with no ability to feel emotions, fear having to face this mutant lion.
Minroth Thrain The first ember dwarf player character ever.
Minroth Thrain The first ember dwarf to hit on a human female. Her name was of course Maramell of Lorwin.
Minroth Thrain The first player character to be burned at the stake as a witch and survive without injury.
Minroth Thrain The first PC to find it advantageous to be burned at the stake as a witch.
Minroth Thrain The first PC to kill a cavalier (or anyone for that matter) with a burning log to the head.
Minroth Thrain The first spell caster to enter into a 7 year, reciprocal contract with a leprechaun familiar (Ezekiel). After the seven years are up (or if the ember dwarf wanders into Whoopasia) Minoth becomes the Ezekiel’s familiar.
Minroth Thrain The first spell caster to have a familiar with more political power and status than he has. Minroth’s familiar, due to a bizarre set of circumstances, became a counsel member of Whoopasia.
Minroth Thrain The first player character ever in a Michael Van Ness campaign to seriously consider suicide in-character as a means to save a friend.
Moresco Niphraem First to cure the common cold with paladin abilities. I think the recipient was a dwarf in the citadel-city of Augengar.
Moresco Niphraem Absolute most bad ass non-min-maxed character ever. This honor was solidified after his actions at the battle of witches-burning, in the Sword Lands, where he was forced to dismount in order to continue whipping ass because his horse was just getting in the way. Moresco, who had a strength of maybe 15, with not even a +0 weapon, defeated over 15 Swordlander cavaliers during this battle, many over his own level.
Myra “the persistent” Absolute worst wild mage ever. Why? For starters, she voluntarily used Xanadu’s Psychotic Dweomer and Super Psychotic Dweomer, since Nhall’s Reckless Dweomer wasn’t chaotic enough. Her only real success, aside from generating several succubus versions of herself, was somehow surviving the moments where bursts of wild energy destroyed everything around her.
Ophi “the silent but deadly” First character to decorate aesthetically (from a certain point of view) with entrails. The location: entrance to the pyramid of Amun-Re, “The Desert Realm.” The entrails: former pieces of a goat daemon and his worm-zombie allies. Time Spent: In excess of 40 minutes to get them “just right.”
Ophi “the silent but deadly” The first PC to regularly burst into flames upon lying.
Ophi “the silent but deadly” The first PC to be double-crossed by Su-Monsters.
Ophi “the silent but deadly” The first player character to stop advancing as a cavalier in order to pursue a career as a psionicist.
Ophi “the silent but deadly” The first PC ever in the history of TRPGs to destroy Molly Ringwald with a spear attack to the head. This modern NPC was of course summoned via wild magic, and lasted all of perhaps six seconds?
Ophi “the silent but deadly” The first PC ever to critically hit a Care Bear. Yes of course it was with a spear in the head; there was much stuffing to be found afterward.
Primus The first dark purling to gain stark-white fur. Of course, this was the result of wild magic, specifically wild magic from Fastred.
Primus The highest level Dungeons and Dragons 2.x edition, triple class character ever. As of this page’s last update, he was a fighter/8, thief/11, psionicist/9. Damn.
Primus The first player character who, while sleeping through an entire battle, earned more experience point than a character who fought in the battle! This occurred during the battle of Corvette barn, post-apocalyptic Earth. This was partially the result of said player helping out and participating, with interest, in the game session and not trying to get woken up out-of-character. He was also spending PSPs at the time.
Rascarr “the chancellor of Chi” Most resurrections of any character in a universe/campaign where resurrection magic is generally unavailable: 7
Rascarr “the chancellor of Chi” First PC to quote a Lucky Charms commercial while engaged in battle with an elf.
Rascarr “the chancellor of Chi” First PC purposefully throw his own spirit guide into a fireplace.
Rascarr “the chancellor of Chi” First PC to deliberately leap off a 100’ waterfall because it was noon.
Ray Hungriest hobbit in the history of the multi-verse.
Slipstring Worst good-aligned cavalier in the history of tabletop gaming in regard to upholding his chivalric code. During one game session, he took over a town by pimping out and mercilessly slapping and beating a group of prostitutes and barmaids.
Slipstring First player character ever to gain a negative experience award at the end of a game session. How? See entry above!
Slipstring Worst non-suicide, individual tactical move ever by a player character in combat. Slipstring was surrounded by enemy cavaliers. Realizing his D&D; 2.x edition rear armor class was 10 (purlings don’t wear armor), he fell down on his back, “to get rid of his rear armor class.” His opponents gleefully hacked away…
Slipstring Most gold pieces spent on decorating a personal weapon: 25,000 gp. The weapon was a bi-rapier. Slipstring’s player took the following passage in Unearthed Arcana very seriously: “…a cavalier character will always seek to possess the very best and finest-quality armor [and weapons] the character is able to own. In this endeavor, appearance is as important as function, so engraving, inlaying, and decoration…will always be sought.” (Grub 1985: 15).
Solutourous the Anti-Paladin Shortest amount of time for a paladin (well, anti-paladin) owning a “called warhorse” (Ok, a nightmare, which makes this record even worse): 140 seconds of in-game time.
Solutourous the Anti-Paladin Also the first anti-paladin to order his horse into a river of holy water!
Subcommandante Julio Vega First PC to successfully role-play entire game sessions as a disembodied head. That he was a robot helped along this achievement; Mighty Quinn used to wear his head like a hip-hop medallion, and frequently used him to look around corners and so forth.
Subcommandante Julio Vega First robotic character to install an electric grill into his chest and use it successfully as a weapon.
Subcommandante Julio Vega First robot PC to dual wield police-officer-snagged-on-grappling-hook and mouth-flamer.
Tenagra Best Role-Played Dralasite ever in tabletop gaming.
Tenagra Most aberrations created by a player character: 72 He generated 17 beholders, 15 observers, 12 eyes of Roth, 17 other beholder-kin, and 11 gibbering mouthers!
Tenagra Most individual, living forms a player character has ever polymorphed into in one magical event (not counting atomic particles and such): 72
Vulpecula First D&D; PC to enter a modern ventilation duct and crawl to safety like Bruce Willis in Die Hard.
Vulpecula First D&D; player character to use a compound bow in combat.
Wubba-wubba the barbarian The most stereotypical player character ever.
Zagygfizzber Most negative hit point total that was actually calculated for a Dungeons and Dragons 2.x character: -626 hit points. This was achieved after he created a wild surge cascade and detonated all gold in a certain radius (and he was greedy).

Non Player Character (NPC) Records

General Records and Feats of Renown

Chuck Norris the whammy The first character to attempt to teach stuffed animals martial arts.
Chuck Norris the whammy The first character to successfully teach stuffed animals martial arts. How? Did you read his name?
Chuck Norris the whammy The first NPC ever called “Sefu” by more than one active player character.
Chuck Norris the whammy The first character ever chosen by “the sacred hobbit.” Thus, Chuck Norris is the chosen one. This happened after a wild surge targeted Chuck and caused a hobbit to appear in front of him with a gift on a pillow. The hobbit referred to him as “the chosen one” and gave him the gift before rifting away. Chuck was never the same again, his ego expanding well beyond known limitations.
Chuck Norris the whammy The first NPC who can prove he has done anything, simply by referring to his own name.
Dling Canuvian Most bad ass kobold ever in the history of tabletop gaming.
Dling Canuvian Most skilled character ever with khopesh sword. Not only does Dling enjoy grand mastery, he also has training which far exceeds this level of expertise.
Dling Canuvian Most hit point total of any kobold, ever: 147.
Dling Canuvian Most stoned kobold ever in the history of tabletop gaming.
Lord Nymhrath du Conar Silrith The character with the longest title (based on actual events), ever. He announces himself as: Lord Nymhrath du Conar Silrith of the clan Drathgeld, wielder of Fire God phantasms, the lizard bane, goblin slayer, orc thorn, wizard basher, Hero-Master Trickster, Swashbuckler-Cabalist, Myrmidon-Visionist, the orc melter, ogre bane, pounder of vampire demons, champion of Osprum, equalizer of rogue wizardry, defiler of unholy sanctums, render of dragons, giant-slayer extraordinaire, master of death bunnies, the army foe, freer of slaves, basker in rays of doom, the wyrm-talker, comet rider, Superhero-Apparitionist, world jumper, eater of dust-diggers, router of Efreeti Pashas, crumbler of golems, the Sphinx-talker, riddle-master, breaker of ancient curses, Lord Spellbinder-Illusionist, the once-statue-and-back-again, Whoopasian master magical scribe and chief librarian.
Medjanjaf, Dalorl’s familiar Most hit points of any familiar ever in tabletop gaming: 199.
Melina the maid. First character to transmute to pinewood, X-man style, animate and durable.
Mr. Samuel “fear me” Bitters Highest level ever attained by a rabbit, mutant or otherwise: 32
Mr. Samuel “fear me” Bitters Most hit points of any “party NPC” ever: 249
Mr. Samuel “fear me” Bitters Most improved NPC ever in the history of gaming; gaining 31 levels Samuel started off as a level 1 farmer, and rose through the XP ranks to his current level of 32. Of course, that he was summoned by wild magic, that he has no cap on levels earned in a session, and that he needs only 7,500 xp per level has contributed to this achievement.
Nalistral Most critical hits on enemies resulting in body parts flying off. Her flaming longsword nearly always spelled bad news for her foes…
Nemaku Baal-Atun Most ineffectual re-occurring (powerful) villain ever.

Dungeon Making / Game Mastering Records

General Records and Feats of Renown

April Case First DM to exclusively use a “Fargo” accent to animate the majority of her NPCs. Also quite possibly the first DM to give a hobgoblin and an orc the same accent.
Ed Broughton DM most likely and able to provide his players with excruciatingly painful and exacting details, down to the exact specifications and characteristics of stones in stone walls and individual leaves on trees, especially when your characters have no direct line of sight to said details.
Ed Broughton DM most likely to save his player characters by overlooking the innate spell-like powers of, say, dangerous kick-ass Tanari.
Ed Broughton DM most able to apply exacting situational penalties to a PC’s opponents. These might include rolls to see if said opponent recalls their own training or to determine if they have recently used the bathroom.
Ed Broughton Best overall Dungeon master at animating and running in-game scenes involving coastal areas and docks, islands, recently deserted settlements, small towns, and abandoned structures.
Keith Wood First DM to center an interesting campaign around a Grimlock civilization.
Keith Wood First DM to end a campaign while simultaneously dodging a Calculus book that an angry jerk of a player threw at him.
Michael Van Ness Most wild surges presided over in the history of tabletop gaming. While no actual number has been computed, players in his campaigns have rolled thousands of wild surges.
Michael Van Ness Largest wild surge table ever compiled and used in the history of tabletop gaming. Eventually, this master table will appear in the creative section.
Michael Van Ness First DM to develop a semantic domain around wild magic that links animate piñatas, super bouncy balls, sentient animals, colored butterflies, a particular genre of useless/amusing modernity, and “cascades” to the concept.
Michael Van Ness Most number of game sessions in a single continuous campaign: 106, The TFR Campaign.
Porter Most levels of NPCs used in a combat scene: over 4,000,000 As one player explains: “We faced: one million 3rd level barbarians, half a million mixed devils and demons, a uncounted company of wizards of 5th to 12 level lead by one 41st level Necromancer. Last but not least, Varaknazur (spelling unknown) the Over-God of everything evil. Two of the three of us were on the battle-field. The gnome managed to kill several hundred barbarians, which were his focus. When St. Cuthbert showed up to battle Varaknazur and died, the evil beings on the field left. And that was it (maybe in the running for the dumbest retreat from battle too) They had half melted the “city of made of ubdurium.” (which was the hardest substance ever)”
Rick Brust First DM in the galactic history of TRPGs to include a “talking anus” NPC in the shared fantasy.
Ryan Jones The absolute best Dungeon Master at creating historic backgrounds and a general cultural feel and animation to his stories.
Tyson Hartwig Most likely to kill of his PC’s so he won’t have to DM anymore. This usually happens after the players have pestered him to DM over and over until finally he agrees. The shortest session lasted less than 5 minutes, in which a group of four Veggipigmies slaughtered a 1st level PC ranger, who made the mistake of greeting them.
Zeb Fox First DM in the history of tabletop gaming to add a kobold postal system to a shared fantasy environment.
Zeb Fox DM most able to make his players fear shadow encounters.
Zeb Fox The most creative employment of a stone shape spell to protect an NPC, in a single adventure, by a DM ever.

Player Records

General Records and Feats of Renown

“Blind Josh” Ran the absolute funniest robotic Heroes Unlimited character ever, Subcommandante Julio Vega.
“Blind Josh” First player to argue for extra damage for a can of soda their character just used as a weapon, on the basis that “it might be really cold.” This occurred after his robot character Subcommandante Julio Vega meticulously removed the front of a soda machine with a tool-attachment in his arm in the middle of a deadly fire fight, and proceeded to favor cans of soda over his internal weaponry.
Clay Layton Worst-worded wish spell ever in the history of tabletop gaming, and all the multiverse. His character, Slipstring, was ambushed by a group of bandits who knocked him unconscious and robbed him of his 25,000 gp bi-rapier. After an unsuccessful quest to locate the thieves, Slipstring left his companions and embarked on a quest to find a wizard who could cast a wish spell. After six months or so of searching, after acquiring massive amounts of resources, Slipstring got his wish. There, in the wizard’s private citadel, after a long lecture on how he should carefully word the wish, Slipstring uttered the following immortal words after the wizard cast the spell: “Damn I wish those mother-fuckers that took my shit were right here right now!” Well, the magic worked, and to the wizard’s horror the bandit camp materialized in his citadel…after a brief fight, the wizard was dead, Slipstring was unconscious again, and the bandits robbed him of his new blade…
Clay Layton Most consecutive number of dead characters devoted to the destruction of one NPC, in an act of out-of-character-knowledge revenge, because the first character to die was killed by this NPC: 6
Clay Layton First Heroes Unlimited player to directly cause a nuclear war and utterly end a campaign.
Clay Layton Player who most loved role-playing throughout his brief life.
Dave Sievertsen The most talented character artist I have gamed with.
Dave Sievertsen The player most likely able to live his character’s lives.
Dave Sievertsen The player most deeply in-character ever in a game session.
Duncan, A.K.A. Brian Carter Longest time taken to decide what to do in a round while the in-game action waited for this decision: 43 minutes Context: His character Kleshe Toan was facing an ancient dragon, out in the open, and initiative was his by only a few points. Two smoke breaks and a lot of pained consideration later, he hid behind a tree…
Duncan, A.K.A. Brian Carter Most mysterious magical swords gained for his characters due to poorly written entries on his character’s items sheet: 2
Keith Wood Most statistically likely to play another elven archer/wizard upon entering a new campaign…
Keith Wood Captured the most fellow player characters ever in a Heroes Unlimited campaign.
Rick Brust First player ever to run fighter characters and care more about his charisma and comeliness than his other stats!
Rick Brust Most hit dice of enemies defeated in-game with medusa heads.
Rick Brust Player with the most Fantasy-World records listed on this page…
Sergio “the man” Most verbose player in the history of tabletop gaming
