From the Introduce yourself thread
Heron but no one calls me that:) HJ or Sto works well
Old enough to know better than to answer that question
When you started playing D&D?
Although I tried to play in middle and high school I have to say I really only got started when I went away to college in the late 80's
What rules you started with?
First edition and I have played every edition since then with 4th edition being my favorite so far followed by 2nd, first and 3rd being far back
where does your Forum Nick come from?
My nickname comes from a first edition cleric I ran in a good friends game (I still play with him 20+ years later). My clerics name was Surlyman but a npc cleric dubbed me Surlyman the Thoroughly Obnoxious due to the fact that we were from rival churches and I had notoriously bad reaction rolls from nonevil NPC's. From that point any time I was getting hassled by other part members over something I had done I always blamed it on my "Evil Twin Sto".
Years later that name was used by a priest in World of Warcraft who announced he was now the Sto-loc when pressed into duty using damage over time spells since our group did not have enough Warlocs to finish a particularly dificult fight
I am a HUGE fan of certain of the World of Greyhawk stuff including the Temple of Elemental Evil. In fact I am currently looking for a group to play this with online using Ventrillo or another voip program and Maptools or gametable.
I'd love to find a group willing to test some of the new playtest stuff in this classic adventure.
