View Full Version : Official 2nd ed. pregen PCs?

So I recently got back into DnD with old crew, and since I'm DMing, I wanted to toss in some fun stuff to boost the nostalgia factor. However, for the life of me I can't find what I'm looking for.

When we started playing some 14-15 years ago, we were obviously playing 2nd ed., and using hand-me-down materials from a friend's older brother. I think it was some sort of box set, or starter thing, or something, but I'm having difficulty figuring out the exact product, because I don't know what all it came with.

However, what I do remember are the character sheets it included. Nice looking folded sheets that explained how they would advance from 2nd to 5th level, and even included a short spell list on the back for the spellcasters. We used them for years, and our group got pretty attached to them. I'd like to remake them using 3.0 rules, which would be pretty easy, except that I can't really remember their specific qualities that well.

I found this (http://www.wizards.com/dnd/files/ADND_Fast_Play.pdf) Fast-Play thing, which isn't quite it, but includes some of the same characters. So I know we had Thaddeus (human wizard), Darkblade (human fighter), Elanna (human fighter), and Niles (halfling rogue). I believe there was also Mitchifer (human cleric), Peregrine (human Paladin), and Sunblayze (half-elf fighter/wizard).

Does anyone else happen to remember this stuff? Know where it came from? Remember any other specifics about the characters (equipment, spells, etc.)? Dare I hope, even have them on hand somewhere?

Hmmn. I cannot say I have ever come across this before. It might possibly be one of the Classic starter sets, rather than AD&D second edition.

I'd like to find out about this, too. I remember getting that same box set about a year or two before 3E came out. I think I got rid of it long ago, but I remember all of the characters you mentioned.

It looks like TSR put out a fast-play boxed set.


Is this it? People on the internet seem to think highly of it :smallsmile:

That's it! I remember I was able to cajole my mom into buying it for me because it was so cheap. ¡Muchas Gracias, Señor!

I don't recall exactly, but the cheap price and the "8 hero folders" sounds just about right. Thanks.

Unfortunately, it seems just obscure enough that Google can't find any specific information about the characters it includes. Looks like I'll just have to wing it from memory.

It looks like all the names you mention appear in this (http://www.canonfire.com/cfhtml/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=99).

Might be useful, might be useless.
