OK - So we know that Thor's real name is Thor and that none of us can remember to log in before posting a message ;) but who are we really?

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Are you Married? What job do you do? Do you like Advocados? Who's your favourite Simpson's character? Hell - Just tell us anything! It'd be interesting to see if all gamers ARE the nerdy, stay at home, single types with Harry Potter glasses.

Just to show faith - I'll mention a little about me.

I'm 37 and come from England but have lived in Spain for the past 7 years.
I've been D&Ding (mostly DM) for around 25 years.

For 17 years I was a Professional Magician, floating cars and making women appear in my box ;) (it's all true). I've been on UK TV, cruise ships and theatres across England & Europe. (20th level mage - but never could quite perfect the 'Get Claudia Schieffer to go out with ME' spell).

I now work in a tiny place called Gibraltar as the Training Coordinator for a BIG Internet Casino (yes, I'm afraid it's that awful pop-up one that annoys the world :( . So now I STILL play with cards but teaching Blackjack, Craps & Poker etc.

I also run a small but busy internet store selling 'different' role play stuff. (I try to keep away from WoC & GW).

I also write kids novels (as yet unpublished) and comedy poetry.

I have a partner, 2 kids 1 spaniel, 1 cat and a lovely villa with pool etc.

My fave simpsons character has to be a toss up between Homer and Barney.

Oh - and I LOVE advocado but am never sure how to spell it.

OK - this is me. Just remember that you cannot use any of this information for security reasons......... social security reasons :lol:

BTW - I love the idea of Thor having characters called Phil & John etc. May his Mjolner never wilt! Do we have any members whose real name is Thorbin Orc-Cleaver or Grendolf of the Wood?

c'ya - Off to work now :(

I am Thor.

I'm a nine year old little girl and I like ponys........

That's not right............

I'm an old gamer, started with Rune Quest. I DM a game with my buddy MrMorden. In exchange he sometimes takes my into downtown Athens GA to visit my favorite watering holes where I can complain about how all the girls are too young.

I work for a lawfirm that sues companys. I'm the guy who trys to settle the problem with out bringing out the big guns. (Lawsuits)

All of our Group of 5 are Computer geeks but me. They have cell phones that take pictures, play music and video games. Sometimes these phones make noise and jump around the gaming table. (This frighten Thor, who threatened to bash them with big rock)

We call some RPG players "Grubbers" when all they do is "grub" around the fantasy world looking to be healed, helped, or be given free Magic items, while ignoring the heroic mission because it sounds to dangerous. It's kinda become a badge of honor. (Like "Grunts" during the Viet Nam war)

We have way too much RPG stuff. Thousands of minis and multipe sets of DW. Bunch books etc.

I've traveled a lot across the USA and Euro.

I live on Lake Lainer and distrust red-headed woman.

That's about it.

I am a 39 years old (ouch :( ). Two sons, aged 9 and 8...they come packaged together with a wife.

I own/manage some language schools in Taiwan. I spent 1 year in Beijing and the last 16 here in Taiwan.

We have a gaming group of 5 hardcore players. We are currently running a group of halflings around causing all sorts or havoc. I am currently being sued by the local creature union for unfair fighting practices.....can't see or hear those little suckers and the baddies are complaining about an excess of ambushes and their inablility to hit small dudes. Been playing this silly game over 25 years.

We use the term "gak" for fighting or hittting. Ex: "Come quick, I've been gakked." "Man, that was some good gakking tonight."

Besides AD&D, I enjoy collecting US Civil War documents and Aikido.

Not much else....

I live in Athens, Georgia (WAY too close to Thor). I'm 37 and recently divorced (woo hoo, I don't have to justify DF purchases to anybody anymore! :D ).

I've been gaming since 1980, and have played most of the major games that have existed since then. My faves are D&D, Traveller, Cyberpunk, and Call of Cthulhu.

My turn ons are long walks on the beach and honest people. :P

I actually have a new bed, but it's in pieces in the upstairs bedroom. I was going to get you to help me put it together, but I forgot...

I still have to buy a mattress for it, but your days on the couch are numbered. :)

I'm 36, married, and have one child on the way (so I fear that my duty of hosting our game sessions will be coming to an end shortly, at least for a few months). I'm in management at a large distribution center, a bit of a change of pace from my previous work, from grip to producer, in the film business in LA. But then, I hated LA the minute I got off of the plane and I grew bored with the film thing, and I'm much happier living back amongst folks who haven't experienced earthquakes, riots, brush fires, and floods all in one year :lol:
I started playing AD&D at 14 and its been my primary game of choice since (with a few years' break in there somewhere). I've played a little Alternity and All Flesh Must Be Eaten now and then as a change of pace. When DF 1st started advertising in Dragon magazine, one of the guys in my group tried to talk me into buying it. He knew I was the only one at the time who had no qualms about dropping cash on gaming material. I remember telling him that there was "no way" I would be buying DF because I had enough trouble fighting my compulsion to own every mini ever made and I wasn't going to get into another expensive collecting habit....So, much like a crack dealer, he bought me my first set as a birthday gift (knowing I would be hooked the minute I opened the box) and the obsession was on. I now own multiples of every set but the cavernous passages, and to this day my friend still owns none but gets the full benefit of using mine thanks to his creative manipulation and excellent sense of my character and compulsions. My group still plays 1E. In fact, one of the guys in my group is someone I went to high school with, and we still play a Greyhawk campaign that he started way back then.
Besides gaming, I hunt, fish, and dabble in woodworking (which I would like to put to work designing my own pieces to compliment DF, but my time is mostly spent restoring an old victorian house from the turn of the century)
Lao Draco is actually the name of my favorite PC, a young but eccentric and powerful mage who specializes in Alteration magic. To say I favor him would be an understatement, my group has voted me "most likely to be found wandering the steam tunnels under New York" ala the character from "Mazes and Monsters" which no doubt brought many a mother to needlessly fear the evils of Dungeons and Dragons for its warping affects on the psyche (although I may be warped and/or twisted :shock: , I can't say that any of the blame should fall on D&D ;)

i wrote that in an other thread but it wasn't at the right place so i put it there

I am Thomas from France, iam 32 years old, married for 8 years, 2 chlidrens ( 4 and 2 years old ) and i am a sport teatcher in a french school
others hobbies: photos, computer, sports, Tanganyika fishs
i've got 22 DF sets, i 've bought them about 1 year ago
i play one time a month no more i don't have enough time


generally i play like that:

i build the maze before and i cover it. then when the players are advancing i discover the rooms. I play with 4 players in a game i invent myself but that is very inspired from D&D game. They live adventures sometime in the maze some time outside. it's a game between roleplay and warhammer.

but sometime i discover all the maze and i play like video game. My 4 players make 2 teams of 2 players. each team has to clean the keep, in choosing the better way to become stronger and at the end the 2 teams fight each other. they collect weapons, potion of health and many other things until there are no more monsters and then they choose a big room to win the play and kill the other team

other time the maze is also discover and a team have to defend the maze with a small army and the other team has to attack it. when i play like that it takes 4 hours and the characters are used only for this play.

my project is to built progressively the room when i need them to keep more freedom to my players, but for the moment i did not try.

i change often of players, because i want to promote that kind of game. and i love make the new players discover such a game. I take the players in my school, they are about 14 years old. I play with them 6 or 7 times during 4 hours and i change. most of them are going on playing rollplay after trying in my home. DF stuff is really a good things to hang the players. Each time they are completely crazy about the game. and i love that.
