    So I was rummaging through some of my dad's old stuff, and I found his first edition D&D rulebook along with his "Kromgol" His old fighter's character sheet.

    I think I'll frame it. R.I.P. dad.

    Sad thing is, we had a conversation about a barbarian I made.

    He was frustrated with a puzzle so instead of solving it like the gargoyle asked, I just pushed it over and broke it.

    He said "Kromgol would be proud."

    I thought he was humoring me.

    Well where to start...

    He was a really funny guy, a bit overweight, with an untrimmed goatee and bad eyes. I didn't know he used to play D&D until I was 16. I brought it up that I wanted to play and he explained most of it to me. I didn't know he played seriously though, so I never invited him to any games.

    He used to pop in during my 40k games and MTG games and ask if I was winning. He was happy to host at our house, he would bring us chips and drinks while we played and never once complained about the noise.

    I never got to spend a lot of time with him, my parents got divorced when I was young, and I didn't see him from when I was 16 until I was 20. I took the opportunity to move up to Washington with him, where he continued to let me host games. I told him about clerics I rolled and he told me about his exploits.

    He hated spellcasters, "Complicated and scary." he would call them. "Now fighters, they're easy. Don't understand it? Hit it. Scared of it? Hit it. Diplomatic problems? Hit it. Anything can be solved with a well placed greathammer swing."

    He wasn't above listening to Johnny Cash at full blast, even though I kept trying to overpower it with my Tool. He let me stay at his house through my college career, and even got me a job at his work. He rode a Honda Goldwing, and ironically asked for a skullcap for his birthday one year. So as a joke I got him one with 20 sided dice on it. He cried when he saw it.

    He met all my girlfriends, and harmlessly flirted with them all. He could play the violin, saxophone and piano. He had done theater for 22 years, and helped me get a role in a small film.

    He was telling me once he got a TPK because he hit something.

    Kromgol came into a room and there was this apparatus that had trapped his party. In true Kromgol fashion, he tried to smash it and got a critical failure. He rolled for intensity and another critical failure.

    He went to smash the arm holders on the thief, and crushed the theif. The shrapnel hit him in the eye, and being pissed because he was blind, he started swinging violently.

    this caused the alchemic shit on the table to react and burst into a deadly gas filling the room and killing them all.

    They weren't even level 2.

    Kromgol is high tier.

    This reminds me of an old ex-girlfriend's dad. He was a classy bastard. Was one of the guys who played with Gygax and Arneson back in the day, and still had all his old books. There were some great stories of some of the old games, and he would go on and on about old sessions and games that he ran at GenCon.

    After a few months, she cheated on me and dumped me. Worst week of my life. Then, I get a call from her number. It's her dad.

    "So, I heard my daughter was a bitch. Let's play some goddamn D&D."

    My dad used to play DnD back in the day, and never mentioned it until I brought it up with some of my friends.

    He played a dwarven paladin named Darvon. Made a cast in pewter for this character and painted it, with a big red "D" as the crest of his shield.

    I've included the character of Darvon in some of my campaigns so far, but I'd really like to get a game going with my dad for old time's sake.

    Ha ha, okay lemme think of a good one.

    Okay well one time, he was with this Chaotic good wizard, who of course frightened the humble Kromgol. Well in order to sate his fear, the wizard would create small creatures for Kromgol to pet without having to worry about crushing them, because he would just make another.

    Well Kromgol was petting this kitty, and they suddenly got into combat. Kromgol, fearing the cat would be hurt (Not realizing it wouldn't actually DIE) refused to put it down. So he fought the entire battle with a cat in his off hand, decapitating his enemies in his main hand.

    Also, later the wizard came back briefly at the end of the campaign, and gave Kromgol a piece of sugar as a treat for helping him. Kromgol tried it and it was too sweet and hurt his teeth, so he cut off his own tongue.

    He had to get a wizard to grow it back for him.

    This reminds me of the time when my brother and I, like all nerds, decided we wanted to play Dungeons and Dragons.

    It's near Christmas, so my brother and I both put a couple of the 2nd Edition books on our lists, hoping that it wouldn't be too 'Satanic' (really Catholic family).

    On Christmas morning, we get the books we asked for, along with a few older ones. And a few other items.

    You see, my parents met through Dungeons and Dragons. They were both interning at the same hospital, and needed something to unwind when they were on break. One of the residents was a DM, and while it was fairly irregular, it was how they played.

    They still had their character sheets, and showed us them.

    Lorrick, Paladin of Kyrin and Belesha, Druidess of the White Woods.

    Thus began a great family tradition.

    Not that guy, but AC didn't become a "higher number is better" thing until 3rd edition.

    10 AC was default in AD&D.

    19 would mean literally anyone could hit him. Anyone. An old man with no legs could roll and have a 50% chance to do damage. It's... well, it's not good.

    I hate to rain on everyone's parade, but how did he get a 19 in STR, anyway? Pointbuy was also something that started in 3rd edition. He rolled 3d6 and magically got three 9s and a 19?

    Without some scans, I'm not buying this.

    In coming to understand Kromgol's teachings we learn we were practicing Kromgol's beliefs all along.

    In wanting food, we come to understand how much we need and require, not only for ourselves but for the beasts in the woods as well.
    In wanting thirst, we come to understand how much we need, not only for ourselves but for the plants in the valleys as well.
    In wanting battle, we come to understand who is the strongest and who is deserving of life.
    In wanting more, we come to understand our desires and thus ourselves.

    My dad used to play D&D way the fuck back in the day, but kept very little of his stuff. One of the only things he kept were his set of dice. He gave me his d20 when I first started playing D&D when I was like 11 or 12. I use my own dice these days, but I've had the d20 placed in a metal coil on a cord, where I keep it near me like a good-luck talisman.

    Pic related, it's my dad's old-ass d20. And my hand, I guess.

    Daughter is currently married to some jackass from a small town near where I grew up, dropped out of college, and two abortions into this marriage. I severed all connections to my hometown and visit there less than once a year. I'm still in touch with her dad, though. He is epic bro-tier.

    He is also a hardass AD&D DM. The kind of guy who runs "The Tomb of Horrors" and expects us to somehow manage to survive. Gamed with him a decent amount when I was still in high school, but it was always a bit awkward going to my ex's house to hang out with her dad. We got along like nothing else, though.

    I have a manly tears story.

    My dad was an avid D&D player. 2nd edition mostly. He died of pancreatic cancer when I was ten. I was rummaging through his things one day a few years back and found all of his books, die, sheets, etc.

    I kept them all in the backpack he did. Read them, cherished them. They were the only thing of his I had.

    One day, my uncle decided to rummage through my stuff. He throws the backpack out into the hallway and the dog gets ahold of it, destroying all of the books and sheets in the process.

    All that was left was the 2nd edition DM guide. I keep that book hidden now, but I take it out every so often and read it. On the inside over is written "Joey Meyer - Hammerstone the Dwarf" His name and his character's name.

    He had a genetic eye disease that I have as well, and it causes him to have poor eyesight at times. Well being a pilot Boeing paid for him to get his eyes fixed, and on the way home from surgery an SUV swerved into his lane and he jumped the median.

    He was on his motorcycle, he didn't stand a chance.

    I never realized how much he did for me.

    He never held anything against me, not once.

    I remember once, we had this big argument and I stormed out in the rain. He came out in his pajamas looking for me with no shoes on. he found me at the nearby park and we got to talking. I was super depressed at the time, and told him that I hate faking a smile, I hate pretending to be happy.

    "We all have to sometimes, such is life."

    I told him that the last time I could remember being genuinely happy was when we had this cat named Henry. Henry died by drinking antifreeze when I was about 12.

    "So, before the divorce?" and after those words all he did was hug me. We sat in the pouring rain with him in his pajamas at almost midnight, hugging it out.

    I never cried so hard.

    but we're learning of him- of his adventures and exploits, and of all the great and glorious things he's accomplished and done. A humble man, with a capacity for kindness matched only by his ability to be so awe-inspiring. More than a man, a true legend. OP's father and Kromgol are one and the same. And they will live on.

    This seems like the right thread for this story.
    When I was in high school all the guys I played DnD with were in my grade except one, Travis. Travis was two grades below all of us but hung out with us because he had no friends in his own grade. He looked up to us like we were his older brothers.
    Both in game and out of game he would do anything for us. I remember at the end of a campaign my cleric was lying on the ground bleeding to death. Everyone was fighting the vampire, but Travis' fighter, Lorn broke away from the fight to shove a potion down my cleric's throat. A few rounds later my cleric turned the fuck out of that vampire. When I asked him why he did it, he said "That's what my character would do."
    Travis was my brother in bond, if not in blood.
    After high school i joined the army and did two tours in Iraq. When I got back a few months ago I saw Travis. We started a campaign with some of our old high school buddies.
    Travis was stabbed to death last Sunday. He saw a man getting mugged by three other guys. They stabbed Travis to death but the guy who was getting mugged got away.
    I miss you Travis.

    >The Irish wake, in the sense of celebrating at a death, originated with the ancient Celts. In their belief system, once someone died in this world they moved on to the afterlife, which was a better world, and thus cause for celebration...Though many of these customs have faded away in modern Ireland, some are still practised, particularly the laying out of the body in the house before burial. This is rare, however, in the main cities and towns and a declining practice in many rural areas. Generally, the wake is seen as the celebratory gathering after the funeral ceremony, where people might share stories of the deceased over food and drink, but most importantly, to give the people a day to remember the person and to show their love of them.

    I like the idea of Kromgol as an ancient figure within a setting. Bro-tier, but nothing fantastic or super special about him, except that men later in history look to him as a symbol. Unknowingly, his influence decades later leads to a hateful, inward-fighting nation casting aside steel and embracing brotherhood in his name, even if just for a little while.

    A shrine is befitting these two, set upon the highest of mountains where men and women travel to see the tales of these two magnificent warriors played out. Bards shall sing their songs until time ends, children shall be "Kromgol and Travis" and fight the hordes of evil and wizardry.

    this thread has got me thinking, goddamn I do not appreciate my father enough.

    He never played dnd with me, and he was always so goddamn busy working that I only remember a handful of occasions where we did anything as father and son.

    Yet whenever I needed advice, or cheering up or fuck, just a good goddamn yarn he was there.

    Instead of wasting the best years of his life like I am he traveled around the world by hitchhiking or stealing rides on trains, brawling with angry Muslims/miners/natives and impregnating Arab princesses (I was never sure if he was pulling my leg with that one)

    Kromgol, and Son of Kromgol; had I enough money to buy some liqueur I would have a glass raised in your honour.

    For all the times your father was there for you, for the fact that Kromgol is my barbarian ideal, and for his sudden loss. I raise my god damned tit-stein and drink in your honour. (even if it is only orange juice)

    Deepeyed in gore o'er Kromgol's tartan waves,
    Victorious in battlefield, Kromgol the brave
    Bold hearts and nodding plumes wave o'er his bloody tomb
    Victorious in battlefield, Kromgol the brave

    My best friend's dad just died. Even though he was a stereotypical salt-of-the-earth Irishman, he had a fantasy gamer side hidden deep down. I know this because of his massive collection of pulp fantasy, and when I was a kid he would never let us touch his copy of Wizardry V for the Super NES.

    Depends on what kind of party they're with. If other people read the will and told Kromgol that Melor's trying to rip him off, maybe Kromgol still believed Melor when he said they were lying. Or maybe he kept it sealed until time of death.

    From farmstead and from threshers cut,
    along the banks of men.

    They come with vengeance in their eyes,
    too late too late are they,
    For the hero Kromgol Goes to die,

    Up the narrow street he steps,
    He smiling proud and young.
    About the Armour 'round his neck,
    his darkened ringlets clung

    There is ne'er a tear in his two eyes,
    both glad and bright are they,
    For the hero Kromgol goes to die,
    in the battle of Toome today!

    When he last marched up the streets,
    a shining sword in hand,
    behind him marched in Grim Barret,
    A stalwart earnest man.

    "For Fearun, lads for Faerun Lads!"
    He led them too the fray,
    But the hero Kromgol Goes to die,
    In the battle of Toome today!

    There is ne'er more honor 'moung all your dead,
    Who bravely fell in fray,
    Than he who marched to his fate,
    at the battle of Toome today!

    "True to the last true to the last!"

    for the hero Kromgol goes to die,

    Listen, children, and learn of what you may be if you are strong.
    Shut your mouths, I speak of KROMGOL.

    Kromgol the Akimbo Eyed! Beloved of Gruumsh, with one eye to watch each side for battle!
    Kromgol the Strong! Weilder of Vortak and the Mighty Plate of Smashing!
    Kromgol the Wise! Hero of the Orcs, who knew that to solve a problem, you must HIT IT!

    Kromgol owed allegiance to no one, no god, no orc, no human.
    He was first in and last out of every battle.
    His strength so great that the hair of his unarmored shoulders stopped axes in mid swing.

    When the elves came with their magic, Kromgol cut them with one swing Vortak, legendary sword forged by the Dwarven Mastersmith, Hammerstone.

    Nature was no match for Kromgol.
    When Kromgrol stubbed his toe on a rock, he beat the rock into sand!

    There are some who say that Kromgol was bigger than a mountain.
    There are some who say that Kromgol was a god.
    But Kromgol was Kromgol!

    Even death was no match for Kromgol, for it is said he had a son...
