AD&D World of the Three quotes:

The World of the Three is the home game my friends and I play. The main characters are Shade (my character, an elven thief who acts a heck of a lot more badass than she is), Billy (drunken dwarven warrior), Brigida (priestess of Danu. Has a tendancy to fall in love with characters who die. Ocassionally varies the routine by dying herself), Vanora (half sea-elf bard. She and Elektra are always at each other's throats), Elektra (psychotic wizardess type), Robyn (high elf tree-hugging ranger), Arkanoth (warrior-mage who's a smartass and tends to hit on the female characters), and Selene (younger priestess of Danu. Healthily in the 'mother' stage of the moon cycle).

Unfortunately, we didn't start keeping a record of quotes until 1999, which means we're missing about twenty games worth of quotes. But we've got from March 1999 until game ends!
