"Eviscerated by a curiously skilled kobold fighter..."

Contributor James Brigham has donated about eighty documents created in Indianapolis between 1993 and 2011.  The games played range from various D&D versions to Warhammer Fantasy to GURPs and Aces and Eights, and are mostly made up of character sheets which have seen various amounts of use.   There is a good selection of scribbly GMnote sheets created during game play, tracking hit points and spell use and character stuff. 

Here are some highlights:

Note the names:  Scooby Doo and Mountain Dew.  

Running game notes and math is always a favorite of mine.   

These people ordered some fancy pizzas.  I wonder about the order in which this
paper was written out.  I can't help but feel that the the scrawled pizza order
must have come AFTER the carefully written list of character deaths, because why 
would anyone write such a nice list on a piece of sullied paper?  But that doesn't make sense 
because the list was begun on the lower half of the paper...

 A sweet map that has seen a lot of use.

Mysteries abound.  Is this about the game, or about a player, or completely unrelated?

It took me a minute to figure out that the circle in the middle represents a complex
piece of topography.  I'd initially seen it as a confusing cartoon face.  

I'm not sure if this is a homebrew character sheet or not.

There are some pretty amusing little drawings in this donation packet.

Thanks for putting this up. You run a pretty neat website, I just wish it was as easy to look at as the blog is.
