I think I know those rooms. Z staircase, Angel Court, Trinity College, Cambridge? Better known for the firework booby-traps in freshers' rooms and the bathtub of blancmange, admittedly.

Thought I'd already posted this.

Spring semester, freshman year of college. Gaming with a group of strangers I'd just met in the dorm common room. First time playing AD&D (long time player of BD&D). Playing a half-elf bard dual-weilding scimitars (stop looking at me like that; I'd never heard of Drizzt at that point).

The group's from the Forgotten Realms. They've been tasked by their patron (Eliminster) to spelljam to the DM's homebrew world and destroy an evil artifact they've recently come into possession of from a lich. I get picked up as the new meat while they are travelling.

After a few hours nosing around the new world, we find the location to destroy the artifact. But as we enter, we're met by Eliminster and our local, high-level mage contact. I go invisible and ghost off to one side.

The party does some back and forth with the DM, trying to establish bonafides. I keep getting more and more suspicious. So I sneak up behind our contacts and utter those fateful words.

"I backstab the lich."

And I was *RIGHT.*

The illusion drops, the lich appears, the party goes gangbusters on him. I get clubbed like a baby seal. But we won and destroyed the artifact.

And that's how we founded the Horde, our college circle of friends.

Trying out Phil Masters' game The Small Folk:

"Please stop trying to get the combat system into use. I'm sure the scenario will have that in good time."

PC1 "Why are you so cautious?"

PC2 "We don't have a backup for this universe, and it isn't under version control."

During IC character introductions, one character was introduced as a doctor.

Player: Is that MD, PhD, LSD?

Upon reading the campaign name
"The Hellsgate Ritual"

GM (me): What the ritual does is not a spoiler
Matt: Brings about a new era of inter-dimensional trade and prosperity?
GM (me): Yes... from a certain point of view...
Matt: I knew I should have made a 600 point accountant!
