Nostalgia

My parents built a new place, and so this weekend we went through some of our old stuff. I found many interesting items. We found my dad's previously thought lost collection of comic books from the late 1960's. Spiderman, Superman, Archie, Sgt Rock and some others. Besides that, I found the first cassette tape that I ever bought. KISS, Crazy Nights. I still have a cassette player, so I rocked a little Crazy Crazy Nights. I have never been much of a KISS guy, but it was kind of fun to break back out.
I had almost totally forgotten about our little goblinoid friend. Brandon drew this after one of our gaming sessions. The funny thing is, I bet everyone who played that night can picture him leading us for a little gold. Remember his name?
I also found some old newspaper articles. The good 'ol Midland Times. Cory is going to Meistersinger Honor Band, it says, (but wasn't it really Meistersinger Honor Choir?).

It must be Meistersinger honor band because if it was honor choir Kelly Holst would be going, too.

I would think you were right on that one. I just don't remember a Meistersinger honor band, and I thought Matt Lorenzen quit band.

Oh Dear. That charcoal pic is terrible. The lines of perspective don't even match up. I'm not even going to say his name. He was a good guide though.

Cory did a good job at Westernburger Choir Band.

No way, I think that pic is great. That is probably b/c I have vivid imagery associated with it from the adventure, but still, I am not getting rid of it.

Its called Meistersinger, which would lead me to believe that it was choir, however I remember that Matt Lorenzen played saxiphone or something, and I don't remember Katie (?) being in choir. I think she played the trombone.

Shit, I guess I was just too talented to remember all my musical exploits. But I do know this, if such a thing as Meistersinger Honor band existed, I went. That's for damn sure (I also went to Meistersinger honor choir -- but Mary's right on that one, Kelly Holst totally would've gone).

And Rathrasher was a cool little goblin. I can still remember Brando's voice for him saying "Give me gold! I lead you to tunnel! For gold!"
