Gamers are full of stories about their favorite games and characters, but how much time do you spend talking about the amazing characters you've played with? Today I want to take a chance at fixing that. So, today, the challenge is this: tell us about your favorite character that someone else played. You can see mine after the break.
My favorite character that someone else played would be the evil elven wizard Mozenrath. Mozenrath is the most iconic character my cousin John plays. He is a true Dark Elf (no, I don't mean drow, he's just evil) and is known for being a primary villain in numerous games, even when John himself was a player and not the GM.
Among other things, and perhaps like all fantasy evil wizards, Mozenrath collected a menagerie of magical beings. Some of them were the usual: dryads, nymphs, sylphs, but he also collected the strange. His castle was set atop a magical labyrinth with a fog of forgetfulness cast over it to help keep would be adventurers at bay. In one game, though I wasn't a part of it, Mozenrath slew a god.
My favorite memory of Mozenrath though would be when my cousin, playing from afar, used Mozenrath as a villain for a AD&D game I was running. A player behind the villain, making calls for several sessions in advance (where to move minions/etc) added a level of lethality and challenge to the game that I think went over well, including some awesome encounters between villains and heroes. In the end, when the good guys managed to win and get Mozenrath to leave at least for a time, the victory was especially well earned.
So, how about you?
