    Nomad - Join WAR [APPROVED]

    Post by Nomad2 on Fri Aug 29, 2008 11:01 pm

    Q) What MMO do you currently have the most interest in playing?
    A) I have been playing EQ2 and AOC casually up until recently but have backed off with the advent of WAR.

    Q) Have you read our Code of Conduct and Forum Rules?
    A) Yes sir/ma'am

    Q) Are you at least 18 years of age? [yes, no, actual age is optional]
    A) Turning 33 on Wed (Sept 3) Smile

    Q) Have you read at least one of our example applications? [this is highly recommended]
    A) Yes I have, great use of punctuation ;P

    Q) Do you have any relatives or friends currently in the guild, or were you recruited by someone? If so, who?
    A) Unfortunately I dont know anyone, but that can change!

    Q) Name: [planned in game/forum name]
    A) Nomad/Rarenomad (sorry for having two, but I imagine that Nomad may be taken if i'm too slow...)

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

    Q) What region do you live in? [City and State is fine.]
    A) Atlanta, Georgia

    Q) How did you hear about us: [friend, another member, forum, google, other mmo's, etc]
    A) I found your guild info on the warhammeralliance forums

    Q) Are you currently in any other AoC, LOTRO, or Warhammer guilds?
    A) Negative

    Q) Have you applied to any other guilds?
    A) Nope

    Q) We like to have fun, how's your sense of humor? Not so good? Good? You're a standup comedian you say?
    A) When I was 21 I dated a woman 15 years my senior who had 3 daughters, one being 16 (oh that was fun). She is british and well had a dry sense of humor....which has certainly affected the way I lend my joy unto others. I do have a bad tendancy to poke fun at anyone, perhaps to the chagrin of those who know me...(they have the I dont know him sign on...) Lets just say I love everyone...at least twice! Smile

    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 resto/feral druid in WoW, then fell in love with EQ2 which I played a Fury and then an Inquisitor. I've always had a thing for healing/support classes and I like to learn from others (mistakes ;p) to better serve the group/guild

    Q) What makes you want to join us over some of the other guilds? [let us know!]
    A) To be honest, the whole "waggro" comment in the forum caught my eye...I like to think I have a good judge of character and well, the comments were indicative of a group of personalities that I think I would enjoy the pleasure of meeting.

    Q) Please tell a little about yourself, aside from gaming. Perhaps some hobbies, about your work, favorite story etc.
    A) Aside from getting old and moldy, I am married with two munchkins. Christian my 5yr old son and my 2 yr old daughter Natalie. We go as a family to Tae Kwon do (3-5 days a week) and I coach my sons soccer team. Goes without saying but I love soccer (Futbol). I am chinese by descent but raised as a latino (long story), my wife is from Guatemala and we speak only spanish to the lil ones.

    Please remember to register here on these forums.
    A) Will do, thank you for reading my novel Smile


    Q) Do you have any questions for us?
    A) Where are you guys from? What was the original intent of theh guild when it first started? (meaning has it changed since it started) Was the guild founded by a group of friends IRL or from another MMO? Does anyone else understand spanish, especially for those special "oh crap" moments? Choose, salsa or merengue?

    Entertaining application. I will let Brakkish answer your specific guild questions as the Warhammer branch of HFC is the newest portion of the guild. I can't say that I understand spanish, I took four years of German, and well I don't think I could speak or write fluently in that language anymore either. Razz I haven't had lessons in either of your choices, so I'll pick salsa as that is the most familar to me. Thumbs Up

    I like the application Nomad. Myself, I am from down in Florida, in a small town called Chiefland. As for the salsa or merengue, I have no idea how to do either so just going to pick salsa because I am hungry at the moment. What a Face

    Uvva dan all dat, I right liked your application! I went drough da same fin’, comin’ from small guilds in da past, an’ afraid bein’ in a big one is kind of intimidatin’. But I can promise we'is like a family ’ere.

    I think you will be a good fit here sir. Thanks for applying! Thumbs Up

    I was in Puerto Rico a few months ago and I can say that I enjoy watching both equally. I learned some time ago that it is best for all involved if I am responsible for appreciating the culture (food, drink, history) and leave the dancing up to the coordinated.

    Daloan - From florida you say? I lived in S. Florida all my life, in Ft laud to be exact, I still have a lingering condo i'm renting...geesh its sooooo bad down there but i digress as this is a gaming world we release ourselves to...

    Schade - I know quite a bit of Boriqua's (puerto ricans), they have some of the most unique sayings...i'll leave that to your imagination! Wink Thank you for your kind words, you guys/gals seem like a good bunch already! Praytell, why did you go to puerto rico? Business or pleasure?

    Sleep/Brakk - LOL Sleeps! I suppose you can have a "taco bell" reference and I wont get offended LOL (btw, I have thick skin, so dont ever worry bout that...unless you call me a Salsa n' chips....wait a tic! Hehe, i'm not overly concerned bout being part of a large guild, in fact its quite appealing. In eq2 I was in some med-small guilds, to be honest, wayyy too much drama! I think I recall reading your mandate against drama queens...ohh, this feels like home already.

    Amnestie - Salsa is a safe bet with anyone having a latino background, its the icebreaker especially when you go to a party and you dont know anyone, just take a mouthful and let the tears flow, it definately gets the attention of the latinas....not that i've ever done that or anything....

    Haha.

    Just for the record, Brakkish is the GM... I was telling Brakk that I gave you a thumbs up. I'm not brakk. Cool

    Yeah... I'm very anti-drama. That's the main reason I had to drop WoW...

    Also, I'm from FL too! REPRESENTIN'!

    You sound like an alright guy! Hope to see you around!

    Sleep,

    Doh! Dont you just love black and white posts...I knew you werent Brakk, I was just seeing if you were paying attention.../jedi mind trick

    Yea man, go Dolphins!

    I'll see you guys around, whether things work out or not, i'm just enjoying the company and really anticipating the 7th/8th (whenever open beta is...) Let me know which server your on, my gaming hours are really wonky:

    M-F - 6a-7:30a (i play before I have to start working)
    M/W - 6:30 - 8ish (before I draw "waggro") <-- stole that one Smile
    Sat/Sun - from 7:30a - 3ish (same as m/w)

    How long did you live in Fl for? are you still there? Man I miss my favorite chinese restaurants! I like georgia, but where I live (BFE) I have to drive 45 minutes just to get to the northside of ATL to get any decent dim sum pig

    PS: I did have one other question for the guild: Will my wonky hours be an issue? When I am on I very much enjoy grouping, especially with guildmates. I will likely do alot of scenarios and PQ's...

    If you guys dont mind me asking, but what are you guys going to start with? I'm really been enjoying the DoK and BO (no not body oder), however for open beta I will like to try the other classes...(WE and Zealot)

    Hey Nomad -

    I'm sure whatever schedule you keep, it will probably mesh with someone here since we're all over the place. Perhaps after launch, we'll be able to get a better feel for who is on at what time. I'm located on the west coast and typically have late hours so you may even see me logging off as you're logging on during the weekdays. Weekends, it's open season...err...open weekend?

    Spanish spoken here.

    Salsa eaten here.

    Ulfaro, in your bio it says your a PM, is that right? Reason I ask is that I work in our information security group at Internet security systems - IBM, was bought out 2 years ago and support our info-sec appliances and sensors(network/server). I work with PM's all the time and its always nice to meet someone with some background, not sure if that is the path I would take, however knowing someone with insight is welcome. May I ask which company you work for? You use Maya? Isnt that the same platform that the big studios use for developing animation movies and whatnot?

    On another note, how is everyone this fine labor day weeked? I suspect my wife has made some plans for us to grill some of my special spanish seasoned spices and some links...i'm already getting hungry!

    Q) Do you have any questions for us?
    A) Where are you guys from? What was the original intent of theh guild when it first started? (meaning has it changed since it started) Was the guild founded by a group of friends IRL or from another MMO? Does anyone else understand spanish, especially for those special "oh crap" moments? Choose, salsa or merengue?

    The wife "Jade", myself, and a few good friends and fellow players formed the clan years ago in a multiplayer game called Neverwinter Nights in 2002. We played on a server called Bastions of War for many years. At that time there were only a handful of us in comparison to today's number. Back then we were 20-30 strong. While Jade hasn't found any real games or MMO's other than NWN to hold her interest and passion, she still hangs around to bother... *ducks for cover* er I mean help out from time to time. Over the years there were many members who branched out and established guilds in the Hammerfist name, but nothing really "official" .. meaning no website or forums. We've had a presence in WoW, DaoC and Guild Wars that until recently I wasn't even aware of! This largely in part due to these branches opening up w/out my knowledge, in MMO's I haven't been a part of. Long live the hammerfist name, wherever it may decide to go! I say. Laughing


    The more "official" and organized presence of Hammerfist emerged along with it's website and forums with the release of LOTRO, then AoC, and now as we move into Warhammer.

    Well done on the application, you'll fit it nicely I'm sure of it. Welcome aboard!

    Thank you Brakk for the history of the guild/clan. It always nice to know where the roots were, i'm glad to be but a leaf of what looks to be a great beginning for me.

    Thank you all for the consideration, I look forward to the carnage ahead of us..WAAAAGGGH!!

    Actually, I say PM because it's more widely know then what i really do: IV&V and Independent Project Oversight. It's a smaller consulting company based in California. Cool
    Tools of the trade: IEEE 1012-2004, PMBoK and an Oversight Framework. Personally, I'm interested in the CISA and PMP but time is hard to find to really pursue a cert at this time.

    The same Maya you reference is the same Maya I'm using. It has a steep initial learning curve but once you pass that things become clearer.

    IT security is BIG...I don't see that professional slowing down anytime soon. You're in the right field. Thumbs Up

    CISA eh? As I understood it, that is a really good credential for management types. Hrmm, perhaps one day I may have to salute you! lol

    I'm currently working on my CISSP should be testing in November, and I completely agree about IT sec.

    How long did it take you to have a working understanding of Maya, from what I know of friends that went to Full Sail, it can take several years....then again, the only exposure I've had to 3d modeling and animation is 3dsmax, heh, nothing like maya.

    Btw, I am completely unfamiliar with the the TT's you mentioned LOL, but from what I gathered, you would likely be a manager for PM's if your specialty is in oversight. Does this work with any goverment agencies? Are you in Linkedin?
