    I saw a rapid prototyping machine in action last year at Siggraph. That was new to me but was highly impressed how far we'd come in technology.

    btw, a little thin on the app. We want to get to know you not know about you.

    Good start. Maybe give us a paragraph of some of your writing? I'd be really interested to see that.

    The shop i work for just bought a 'printer' style rp machine. If you're not familiar with it, it's basically an inkjet printer that sprays plastic and builds it up layer by layer. Really cool to watch and have access to.

    Other than hanging out and chatting, i'm not really sure how to get across much about myself without it really just being 'about' me.

    I've mostly been in small guilds that get to be close knit. Knowing everyone in the guild personally has been cool but there's been a frustrating downside of not being able to accomplish a lot of things in game with such a small pool of players to draw from. I'm looking to try something different this time. I like what i've seen about the 'living guild' thing and i've been into Warhammer for years. There's a lot i don't want to miss out on.

    I've shyed away from larger guilds because they almost always have things like 'dominate the server', uber and leet in their descriptions. That's about where i stop reading. I was actually surprised to read what was in yours and in the interviews. Not many truly appreciate the implications of the 'waggro'. (not married btw, but a live in g/f who is not a gamer is close enough). I'd prefer to game with a group of people i like hanging out with rather than one where it's only about what loot or ranking i can help them get. That's basically why i gave up on WoW.

    Some nights i like to log in and just obsessively burn through some game content, others i'd rather sit back with a beer and shoot the shit in /gchat. If i can manage to do both at once, it's a good night.

    Not sure what else to rant about. Thanks for considering me either way.

    Any questions, let me know.



    Most of what i write is in script or screenplay form. It doesn't usually come off well in small pieces. Besides... i'm kind of timid about putting it out publicly. I gamed with my last group for years and no one has ever seen any of it. If you're really interested and i end up getting to know you, i'm sure i'd be game eventually.

    Thanks for coming back and giving us some more information about yourself. I understand not wanting to post your own material. It was just a thought to give some more fuel to your application. What you did give was great though. You are keeping up with this post and didn't half-ass the additional information that was asked of you. I don't see anything I don't like so Thumbs Up from me.

    Amnestie, I gather you're into books. What kind of stuff do you like to read?

    I'm more into movies myself (read as huge film geek), but there are a few authors out there that i'm really into.

    Good choices btw, Ulfaro. The old snl crew comedies are still the best.


    Is your AoC guild still active?

    I do love books, but to be honest I haven't read in quite a while due to lack of time. I like fantasy and have read quite a few Forgotten Realms series. I also love the Watership Down books. I am a movie lover also. I could go see 4 movies back-to-back if I had the time. I have an even greater respect for most movies now that I know more about what goes into them since one of my older brothers is in the industry.

    I'm not sure about the AoC branch of HFC. I'm guessing that we may still have a guild active, but that again is just a guess.

    That's funny... other than a lot of short stories and Fight Club, the last books i've read were the Icewind Dale trilogy.

    I'm envious that you know someone working in film. The first thing I wanted to do when i grew up (still waiting) was special effects work. I had a job a few years back as an apprentice to the leather worker that was part of the crew that did the original Planet of the Apes armor but that's as close as i've ever been. We're hoping to get some prop design and manufacture jobs at the shop i work in but unless you're known, it's tough to break into.

    Makes for some sweet Halloween costumes though...
