Lord Kilgore is the name of my most successful RPG character and the one I most enjoyed playing. Sadly, he was last seen entering the Lost Caverns and has not been heard from in many, many years.
I began playing RPGs in 1982 with Traveller and soon added Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. While we played many other games, it was AD&D and Traveller that consumed most of our time and passion.
After many forays into various other games and retro-clones, I have settled on 1981’s B/X Dungeons & Dragons and 1981’s classic Traveller as my games of choice. Just as many live their lives believing the popular music from their high school days is the best ever made, I believe the games of my youth might be the finest ever created.
