Last time I wrote about Temeris, he had just reached level 4. My favorite "throw caution to the wind" explorer has now reached level 6 and is still going strong--albeit with a distressing interruption when he was turned to stone by a basilisk! I've stuck with the plan of having him qualify for the Royal Explorer Society prestige class, and (if he survives) he'll be able to take his first level in that at level 7.
As I write this, the character is in another pickle: the Royal Karameikan Fist Adventuring Company is under siege by dozens of worshippers of Orcus (including several ogres) and hasn't had much success trying to fight its way out. Stay tuned . . .

* The more I've played Temeris, the more I start to think he may actually be Lawful Good instead of Chaotic Good.
