Pikel aka Derek

Picture of Derek aka Pikel Thunderstone.

uess I should start at the beginning. Well...I am named after Eric Clapton (he was in a band Called "Derek and the Dominoes" when he wrote 'Layla'.) I spent the first fifteen years of my life in Arizona worried as to whether or not one of the stray bullets would cause more than a hole in my wall, before I moved in with my dad (they're divorced) and his new wife in Northern California. Began high school. After a year of high school filled with everything from football to illegal substances, my dad and his wife get a divorce and my sister is illegally taken from us.

After the first 16 some odd years of unpleasantness, my point of view takes a 180 and for some yet to be explained reason, I become optimistic (much better than pessimism I must say). Now I am usually happy, despite things that happen. I spend most of my time making music from on of the many instruments I play (personal favorites are Trombone, Sax, and Piano), writing music for anything from soloists to 40 piece big bands, and writing for our wonderful website Santharia.

At the time of this writing, High school is nearly over, I have a job, I have no self loathing issues, and life is smiling.

Favourite Games
Most things produced by Blizzard, especially those involving the Warcraft stories. I enjoy most Real Time Strategies, as well as role playing games. Dungeons and Dragons has been a favourite of mine for years. Monopoly is a classic that I never (and I mean NEVER) win, but wholeheartedly enjoy playing. Soccer and American Football are also among my favourite things to play, as is a game called Ultimate Frisbee.
Favourite Movies The Lord of the Rings trilogy, while not as good as the books (TOM BOMBADIL!!) was good. King Kong, Full Metal Jacket, and Pulp Fiction are up there in my favorites. Basically most things with Edward Norton, Robin Williams, and or Liam Nieson are up there on my favorites.
Hobbies Writing and music mainly. I can fill my entire day doing nothing but a combination of those two, and I usually do.
Santharian Focus
I mainly deal with Druids and all that is related, as well as the Ice Tribes region of Northern Santharia, and dabble with Ximaxian Magic.
