The following players have all participated in the Vanguard campaign at one time or another. They have provided some of the most entertaining role-playing events of my experience.
Rollin Baker is a newcomer to the campaign, and plays Vajrah, the Indian Weather demigod.
David Berge is another newcomer to the campaign who plays Nanduti, from Paraguay.
Mike Blum played El Jaguar, then moved to the deductive Tiger of Burma. He is now intending to play the super-powerful Barbarossa from Algeria.
Bruce Dresselhaus played Freedom Force with great verve and enthusiasm.
Robert Geidt played El Dorado, the Golden Man from Colombia.
Jim Gettman played Art Pruyn's character Mouse in two adventures, but has, with the advent of the New Vanguard, reverted to the character he played in my Golden Age game, Oolung (my spelling) the Ancient.
Dawn Greenlee played the brilliant Photos through some very strange twists and turns.
Steve Henderson played Partisan, then Huracon and Tesseract. He also GMed most of the cosmically-oriented Vanguard games.
Ed Kann played the powerful Efreet and GMed one very odd and intriguing game.
Grace Kelley played Nightingale at first, then created Amazonia. She also GMed several games that explored the myths of the Vanguard world.
Bill Keyes played Swiftsure, the British speedster, and now plays his successor, Captain Britain. With both now gone, he has reverted to his Golden Age Character from my Golden Age campaign, the high-flying Blue Hornet.
Pamela Kramer played the original and successor Red Star and Werewolf, and then later Nike.
Heather Mace played Devadasi and Earth Spirit. She also GMed through most of the second year and set many of the traditions of Vanguard that continue to this day.
Ken Mace played Salah-ed-Din in most of his missions with a true feeling for the bearer of that name.
Karl Maurer played Sphinx and then Fox.
Dwight McGowan was ZeeBries's first player.
Tom McKimmy was the original GM of the campaign. He never played a character and left relatively quickly when it became so popular that others of us were running games and he felt he had lost control, which he had.
Colin McKinney played White Lotus and occasionally Masai.
Devin McKinney played Gemini first, and then Stellari. He also GMed several memorable games.
Gordon Monson played Jannisary a few times, but made his mark mostly as the enigmatic Boxer.
Mike Nebeker played Conquistadore and GMed several of the later Vanguard games. He is now playing new member Azul.
Steve Perrin (me) mostly played Mr. Boomerang, but also played Jotun, Bearsark, Hussar, and Swiftsure when the situation demanded it. I also GMed many of the games.
Hilary Powers started the campaign playing Princess Phoenix, and now plays Zeebries.
Art Pruyn started the campaign playing Tyr, and with that character's demise went on to play Iron Cross and Mouse. For the New Vanguard, he plays the powerful Knight St. John from Malta.
Andy Robinson joined us with the game in 2002 to play Red Star II, then played Comrade Barbarossa in 2003 who I created because he asked why there was no East German member. For the New Vanguard he has resurrected his Golden Age character Lone Star to become Texas Star. He represents Texas, and a few other states.
Kim Sanders played both Nightingale and Sun Maiden to good effect.
Stewart Sanders (Spelling?) played Manhunter in several games.
Peter Savoy played Gaucho in a pivotal Vanguard game.
Wayne Shaw joined us at a couple of conventions to play Gemini with great effect.
Ian Studebaker played the awesome Spectre.
Sean Sturgeon brachiated through the games as the amazing Dr. Kong.
Donald Tsang played the high-flying Pelota.
Bill Voorhees played Hussar on a couple of memorable occasions.
Eric Zettler played both incarnations of Mujahedeen. He also played Nightstalker (a modern hero) in some time-traveling tales.
Fiona Zimmer played the warrior Selkie. She returned in the latest game, ready to fight anew!
