Yay, welcome to the forums Marla :)

Can still remember being very excited when you sent me your SWG beta buddy key; I immediately left my lecture and drove home in record speed. Not that it mattered, it took 2 days to download the damned thing :P

Hi there Anso :)

Don't think I ever met you in AR, so likely I just recognize your SWG name from AR boards..

After looking through these pages, I notice I never filled out the obligatory post on myself, always just figured i had, likely cos i have in AR.

So here goes:

RL Name: Sten Nuland
Lives: Haugesund, Norway
Age: 36
MMO XP: SWG, GW, WoW (trial month), EQ2, EvE (Trial 2 weeks), Vanguard (Beta)
Most Noticable toons: Ki'babas (SWG), An'gelus (SWG), Neela (EQ2)

RL prof: Used to be a baker for 14 years, but have changed copletely and is now working as a slinger/banksman in a ship yard.

Interests: Reading, Gaming, Star Wars & spending time in Rio as much as possible :)

My board name is Ki'babas as it was that toon I really got to playing MMO's with back in October 04.
He wasn't my first toon per say, but before that I had virtually no experience playin MMO's, and apart from a short trial in EQ, of which I understood less than anything tbh, I got SWG purely cos I wanted to try living the Saga firsthand.

Made 3 toons then in April 04, on different servers (Bria, Corbantis & Starsider I think) but after running around for a bit, trying to see the sites without ever getting enough creds to buy a shuttle ticket, I left it on the shelf.

Then the weird thing happened, 6 months later, since I cleverly had prepaid a full year subscription, I resistalled it, and made Ki'babas.
He was ment to be a joke really, loosely based on Watto, to be a fat merchant type, in a Mon Calamari version as Toydarians was not an option :)

As per usual I didn't have any clue as to what I was doing, but was dumped in Mos Eisley, and wandered aimlessly into the cantina, where I stayed for about 3 months, emerging a Master Entertainer, Musician & Dancer, and member of the finest bunch of such: BAR :)

Stayed in AR for 2 years after that, and still have a sub, altho last I peeped in AR was a Ghost Town with little more than sand sweeping through our once proud Novus Square...

In February this year I expanded to a Station Access account, and started playong EQ2, joining Honourbound, and currently enjoying it alot as my main Neela Mistrider, or as one of my 8 alts, Jacinto, Ki'babas, Laxx, Crognan, Sharaith, Jacita, Mithriel & Tarederenroc.
Will be playing EQ2 mainly till I join alot of former Aartan friends in Age of Conan..Aartan Reborn

Welcome to worlds away Marla.

And I've also updated my own post on this forum, I saw that it was a bit outdated, it being 2 years old and all.

Not sure if this has fallen into disuse as it hasn't been posted to for a while but I thought I would say hi anyway.

I am Elfazard although I have had many other names in various games. I started out in MMOs a couple of years ago playing WoW and since then have also played EQ2, Ryzom and Eve. I am currently playing LoTRO and I am a member of The Watchers.

I was introduced to The Watchers and this place by DraconianOne who I met playing WoW and founded the guild Nil Desperandum with on the Wildhammer server.

My main frustration has been finding good guilds and then if you change game losing touch with the friends you make. I am hoping that in a community like this I can not only meet people playing the same games but more easily stay in touch with the friends I make whatever game I am playing.

In RL I am the oldest serious gamer I know (44), married no kids, two cats and two horses. I live in the UK (Midlands) and am a computer consultant designing mission critical systems for various customers.

Look forward to getting to know many of you and hopefully see some of you in game.
Playing: Bugger all (no time)

Welcome to the forums! The whole idea of this site is to try and provide a bit of a permanent meeting place for people to stay in touch across different games. It seems to be working as a lot of us playing LOTRO haven't played alongside each other for some time. Hope you have fun. :)

Hi all

I was introduced to your guild by Jimhada, with whom I play Dungeons and Dragons Online and also Lord of the Rings Online. With DDO I run our guild of 30 odd players and we are one of the larger guilds on our server. It feels like I am running a female rugby team sometimes (as Jimhada will attest!) but it is fun. LOTRO I am currently with another small guild, called Amath Ennin (Shield Brothers). I am giving my guild a little time to play a bit more as a guild and come together, but if it doesn't move more in this direction, I will be accepting the kind offer to join your bunch of Watchers playing that game. Indeed I have quested with many of you already and enjoy your company.

I have a more recent background with MMOs, (I don;t go as far back as Everquest and the like) but apart from the two above I have been involved with the beta's of Vanguard (too buggy) and Dark and Light (what a joke! - that game was never ready to see the light of day and hopefully has been put to rest for good). I also played the matrix online and enjoyed that for almost a year, before a server merge and a complete change of the combat system ruined the game.

I have enjoyed role playing games for a long time, and like many have grown up with the Balders Gate series before playing more recent single players like Oblivion, Dungeons Siege etc. I played pen and paper Dungeons and Dragons as a teenager and also at university, but haven't played it since - I don't know anyone in real life now who enjoys it (shame!).

Talking about real life, I am a 34 year old male recruitment consultant who lives in Hertfordshire in England. I am married to a lovely lady who is pretty supportive of the amount of time I want to play computer games, but I do need reigning in every once in a while when I tend to forget that there are a few chores around the house which need doing! I spend much of my working life on the telephone trying to persuade pharmaceutical companies to hire the specialist technical database staff I can find for them.

Films wise I love Star Wars, The Matrix (the first one was the best film by far), Monty Python's Life of Brian (am massive Python fan) and good gangster/crime heist/war films. Musically I am quite diverse, but my big loves are the Orb, Pink Floyd, Stone Roses and much of the indie music scene from the early 1990's. I am a big Liverpool football fan and am enjoying our more recent rise of form under Benitez. I tend to take the long 4 hour drive up to Anfield a couple of times a year to see them play. Lastly, my Dad is a New Zealander, so I have supported the All Blacks in Rugby Union all my life (rather than England - judas!). I was born here in England, but count myself as half a kiwi! Will be going up to Murrayfield in September to watch the famous All Blacks play Scotland in a World Cup match. Really looking forward to that. Just imagine me and my dad cheering for the opposition in a bank full of Scotland fans! Good job rugby is a lot more friendly and sportsman like than football is.

Thats about it really. Will see some of you around in LOTRO, and the rest, well I guess I will chat with on these forums. Oh yeah and my real name is Justin.

regards

Bhurnt
