Ha, it's amazing the stuff I run across while looking for other stuff. I stumbled on these old character sketches I did many years ago. The project went nowhere but I really like the character so I'm going to try to re-purpose him.
There's no trick to having an adventure if you spend a bunch of money, travel hundreds or thousands of miles, or pay someone to organize it. But the adventures that I find the most interesting are the ones you cob together yourself with available gear and friends and access by walking out your front door.
