I've been interested in/ buying books for gaming for roughly 10 or so years, but only *actually* playing since 2005 or so. I've owned AD&D material, but only actively played 3.5 and 4th edition D&D, as well as some Old-World White Wolf games (VtM, WtA). I'm also recently back into Tabletop wargaming in 40k, and looking into Fantasy as well.
Perhaps the best recent character I've had was Six, the Blue (psionic Goblin variant) Telepathic Psion/ noir detective. His name is an homage to an NPC Orc I had used in an earlier game. Six was played in an Eberron campaign, and spent his days solving crimes and/or pulling off A-Team level shenanigans (see below!)
In a game where I played Six, our party had to rescue a wealthy nobleman's son from the clutches of an Ogre Magi (who had fed him a love potion him and gotten him to marry her for political reasons). They spent their honeymoon surrounded by an army of soldiers loyal to the Nobleman, with very little chance to actually get him alone to provide him the antidote. The brains of the operation, Six's plan involved posing as soldiers, posing as doctors, and hijacking a wagon to carry the nobleman out. The look on the DMs face when we pulled it all off with no one the wiser? Priceless.
