    Lochaber join WAR [APPROVED]

    Post by Lochaber on Wed Aug 27, 2008 11:26 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most interest in playing?
    A) Although I'm still playing WoW (and probably will spend at least some time there for a while yet), I'm very interested in Warhammer Online. RvR was a love of mine in DAoC, and to be able to do it again? I'm thinking happy thoughts!

    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?
    A) Yes, I have.

    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]
    A) At least Wink (I was born in 1975 -- I'll leave the math to those who care)

    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]
    A) That I have.

    Q) Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were you recruited by someone? If so, who?
    A) Yes, Weasel. Granted, I'm used to him having another name but -- played WoW with him for years. I'm hunting you down Weasel! Wink

    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]
    A) Lochaber (hey, if we're going Destruction, there IS a Chosen in my future!)

    Q) Gender: [female, male]
    A) male

    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]
    A) Indianapolis, IN -- home of GenCon these past 5 years Very Happy

    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]
    A) It's Weasel's fault! (member)

    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?
    A) Nope. I am in WoW, but not in any of the above-mentioned games.

    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?
    A) Nope, and here's hoping I won't have any need to do so!

    Q) We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good? You're a standup comedian you say?
    A) I am not a standup comedian -- it always takes me too long to come up with a comeback! I find humor in the odd moments of RL.
    My sense of humor is... odd. Not dirty, just "that's funny? how?" odd. Example from today: once I got over the initial pain, i found the fact that I injured myself last night by nearly removing a fingernail on one of my own boot eyelets while attempting to START my chainsaw full of opportunities for humor-- and I took one. After all, telling your co-workers "yeah so -- yesterday I hurt myself while starting my chainsaw" gets one so many interesting looks!

    Q) What other MMO's have you played if any: [Acquired a few skills from some other games eh? Tell us about them]
    A) Played a DAoC smite cleric (w/ just enough in the healing arts to have no heal variation!) from day one until ToA reached "hated" status with me (no, I will NOT level my pants!). Then, after a lull it was on to WoW. I've been a healer, tank, and DPS at various times. I'm big into figuring out a way to contribute, and they've all had their moment. Smile I like to think that having done all of them helps me be a better player because I know what different classes are focusing upon -- but that could just be wishful thinking!

    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]
    A) The fact that you're focused on remembering that a game is entertainment is one with which I agree. Based on the "waggro" comment, I suspect that you also can understand why a man might need to just instantly log out when he feels "heat" on a shoulder, turns, and sees his wife holding a printed-out skull above her head!
    Also, Weasel's here -- and he's a guy I've come to know and enjoy playing w/ over the WoW years. It's an opportunity to goof off w/ him some more, and I'm hoping to take it.

    Q) Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.
    A) Lesse. I'm an avid reader of fiction. I essentially devour books -- ~100 pages an hr (w/ good comprehension! comprehension FTW!) is fairly typical when reading fiction (non fiction is quite a bit slower). I'm a software designer/team lead for a technology consulting firm, and at various times have been known to travel for the job (reading the entire "HP & the order of the Phoenix" during a 4 hr flight provided the flight stewardesses some amusement -- I found out they were timing how long it took me to turn a page!) My wife of almost 10 years enjoys costuming, which is funny since until she took it up as a hobby, she didn't know how to sew. I don't mind -- it gives me some gaming time, and she's happy. I sometimes help w/ that (mostly on pieces that require some engineering, such as -- WINGS!), but mostly stay clear of it -- I don't like getting drafted into cutting fabric (especially not for pants! why is it always pants!?!? ).
    I like going hiking w/ my wife and our dogs. Not back-country trekking (although if I were in better shape and we lived further west -- I'd be willing), but in local parks and state forests/parks.
    I'm camera-shy -- my mother's a shutter-bug, so I fear them (No pictures! Especially not with me in these pants!).


    Please remember to register here on these forums.
    A) Done Smile


    Q) Do you have any questions for us?
    A) Not at this time (thx Weasel) aside from the unanswerable one: which server? Wink

    Good application. I think we could get some amusement from your sense of humor. Very Happy And to answer your unanswerable question, whichever server needs the most Order killed. Twisted Evil In any case, you get a nod from me. I think you'll get an invite straight away since you know someone already in the guild. So here is a pre-welcome wave for you! wave

    Thanks much!

    It was a wierd gencon for me this year. I didn't attend (RL things which were competing, so I decided that just this once, I'd opt out), and yet:

    Wife was doing a # of workshops. The van carrying their stuff broke (brakeline while stopping at a red light -- fortunately no one was there!), so i got to do shuttle trips in my little car to get her there and to get her home again.
    I met up w/ some WoW-guild folks who were attending for dinner
    I met up w/ some other folks who were attending for dinner on a different night.

    I wasn't attending, yet made 5 or 6 trips to downtown indy anyways! weirdness

    When I go I spend a lot of time in the board game room and FAR too much time in the dealer room. I keep saying I'm going to get in on some of the RPGing but I never do. Ah well.

    I loved Space Hulk, but then I moved and the guy who owned the boards wouldn't let me take them Sad

    LOL. I just saw that Lochaber applied finally. Stupid job and bills ... it really cuts into my forum surfing and posting activity at times Laughing


    I didn't even get a chance to say nice things about Lochaber before you guys accepted him. Hey Lochaber? Do I still get that $10 bribe? Wink Wink Wink


    Seriously though, i've played with Lochaber for years. He's a great guy to hang out with and a lot of fun.
