In the (near?) future this page may start to contain a summary of the (most important of the) numerous adventures and campaigns we played. We are planning to (no idea when, how or if) also include a compilation of anecdotes from our playing sessions, both player and character anecdotes. It will not be our explicit intention to make this page interesting for anyone but ourselves, but it cannot be ruled out that we might include some things in here that might be worthwile reading for others.
In short, this page is currently under slight construction. It should be under very heavy construction, but isn't.
Just a short note: three of us have just recently been blessed with children, two single and pair of twins. Up to now we have actually been able to find enough time to continue playing...
A private version of this document is also available from our own Yahoo Group "Kalawan", which generally can expected to be more up-to-date.
Here I will give a list of the (former) group members, in alphabetical order.
|Bakker, Dick||1986||-||deep-gnome fighter/mage (Gnosh)|
|Bulk, v.d., Marco||1985||?||DM/Shadowrun Gamemaster; ran out of time halfway 1997, we're waiting for him to come back; prefers fighter (the annoying trouble-making type)|
|Dik, Harald||1984||-||dark-elf fighter/mage (also DM)|
|Feenstra, Anton||1985||-||elf scout (Leofa)|
|Kelder, Peter||1988||1990||prefers balloons|
|Lous, Niels||1985||-||dwarf fighter, with two-handed (!) sword (Dustbin)|
|Vos, Jakko||1984||-||DM (and prefers it, at least most of the time)|
There have been some more members, we peaked around 1989 at slightly over 10 persons. Most additional members were sisters and/or girlfriends who only lasted half a year or so before getting thoroughly bored with the rest of us, so I won't list them here (for which they would probably be grateful).
In summary, we have a group that started off somewhere around 1984, and now has 5 members, including both initial members and most that joined in the beginning, between 1984 and 1986. My guess is that this is pretty unique, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
At the moment we're involved in two major campaigns, one on the world of Waterdeep (in some parts changed beyond any recognition, with Harald as DM), the other on Hafanus (a world created by Jakko Vos, for which he is DM also of course). Besides these two there have been many separate adventures and lots of short campaigns, some of which we saw through to a prosperous end, others bled to death (literaly or as a figure of speach) and some simply became defunct...

|Leofa||Elf||scout||F||Anton||Gets much critisism from the party for not being there where and when the fighting is hottest, but usually manages to do quite a lot of good from the rear.|
|Lioness||Human||mage||F||Dick||Got half her face burnt off by a dragon and as a result of this now has a new dragon-leather spell-book being made (she did get her satisfaction!). Usually severely low on spells, due to abovementioned dragonfire.|
|cleric||M||Marco||Galathilion was the one to restore Narvic's heart (out of compassion), see below. Dearly missed for his healing abilities, valour, generally good humour and talent to talk himself into and out of the most improbable and dangerous situations (Marco unfortunately can't find the time anymore to continue playing, or to DM for that matter).|
|M||Jakko||Just materialized into our party out of a stone-giants' belt-pouch (we would call it a large sack). We don't know much about him, yet. At least it's good to have a cleric back, we are in the habit of running low on hitpoints a lot... But then, we are now learning he is one of that unusual brand of clerics that for some reason feel guilty towards his/her God(dess) for performing too much healing :-(|
|Tinder||Dwarf||fighter||M||Niels||His ususal reaction to any situation is `CHARGE!', a practice he perfected far beyond what can be achieved by the average mortal. Most enemies have no time for last words, sometimes not even for a final grunt...|
In addition, there is a number of non-player-characters (NPC's) in our party, all male elves. Ofcourse I don't really know their class, but these are probably good guesses:
|Ninu||Elf||Scout||M||npc||obviously teams up with Leofa every once in a while, but also disappears sometimes for no immediately obvious reason|
|Zemli||Elf||Bowsman||M||npc||Increadably good shot. Also makes his own bow(s) and arrows, of outstanding quality.|
|Fransha||Elf||Fighter||M||npc||Seeing Fransha and Ashka fighting their way out of a tight corner together is really something|
|Aeleuthian||Elf||Fighter/Mage||M||npc||He is more or less the leader of the Elves, at least he is the elder. Often has good tactical insights.|
Recently we ended up in the Underdark in chase of one of the swords. We found out that apparently also the Drow elves are after them, though for what purpose we don't know. It seems that whatever it turns out to be, it will not be to our benefit. Probably it has something to do with the quest for power by the (forbidden) Drow god Faerun, rougly speaking the Drow god of Thieves.
I first thought we started playing around 1995, but at one of the playing session (in april 2001), I noticed that my character sheet was dated 1991 (!), which made it 10 years old at that time, and it was made specifically for this campaign. To top that, this isn't even the first version of the character! We all started out with first level characters and have progressed up to sixth to ninth level, which is something to be proud of! Someday we hope to find time to write down some of the amazing stunts that we pulled!
To wet the appetite (not in any particular order): we've fought battles in and on flying ships, some shaped like an actual ship, some like giant insects; we've been captured and enslaved, stripped of all our belongings (except for some scraps of spell in Lioness's head and the skills of the others) and broke free again; as a party containing 6 elves, we've entered the underdark (with magical masks disguising the elves as human).
We started playing around 1997 with zero'th level characters, meaning you have no skills at all (well, hardly any) and have to trust your luck. Since then we progressed to something around fifth level.
