30 Days of Dark Sun 28: When was your first game session? What happened?

When was your first game session? What happened?

A Little Knowledge adventure

The 28th day of #30DaysofDarkSun is here and the question is "When was your first game session? What happened?"

Hmm, that's tough. I would imagine that it was probably in either October or November 1991, but I don't remember the exact date. As for what it was, it was the into adventure, A Little Knowledge. I was the DM. I don't remember all the players or characters, but my long time friends, Rick, Chris, Bob, Tim and likely Darren and Rob were likely players. I only remember a few of the characters. Rick played Scrae, a human preserver, Chris played Marifus a Draji Templar, Bob played Talmun an elven thief(who later re-created the character to be an actual Trader) and Shiekenhein, played by Tim. That campaign ran for several years through high-school.

The details are fuzzy on what happened, but since the adventure was A Little Knowledge, you can bet the players were mad that they got captured to be enslaved.
