Hey, what's up everyone? I joined up with the RPGFan forums during the earlier years of the new millennium and have been a slightly vocal lurker ever since. It never crossed my mind to try my luck at contributing to the website until recently, despite my love of writing and gaming, but I've finally decided to get a piece of the action!

RPGs, without a doubt, dominate my gaming life. I'm not close-minded toward other genres; I just like clunking myself down in front of the television and letting the hours melt away as I kill endless hordes axe-wielding bunnies (or other assortments of animals swinging around sharp objects). There's just something enthralling about watching my pre-teen, blue-haired protagonists level up that makes the insane amount of hours I've wasted somehow seem completely worthwhile. The rest of the gaming populous can go have fun with their party games and headshots; I'll stick with my cliché, world saving antics, thank you very much.

When I'm not doing the whole level-grinding thing, I'm usually hanging out with my gang of friends (we're greasers at heart, complete with switchblade combs), writing, or doing schoolwork. I'm the least culturally diverse person you'll ever meet. I've had the same group of friends and lived in the same house for my entire life, so I'll be in for one heck of a culture shock whenever I manage to pack up my things and scram. It's a simple, mundane life, but I'm happy with where I'm at right now.

If you have any questions, or just feel like hassling me, feel free to send a message my way!
