hat to say about
myself? I've had a pretty uneventful life. I have a normal family (as
normal as normal gets...) and had a nice childhood. I've always had a very
active imagination and have always been a creative thinker. I've been
writing short stories and Choose Your Own Adventure stories since junior
high. I've loved Star Trek since I was 14 years old and loved Star Wars
long before that. Fantasy has always been my escape from the dull
realities of the world.
I was first introduced to Tolkien at the age of 14 years old when I
received the Hobbit graphic novel. I loved it, of course, but it wasn't
until later at the age of 22 when I first saw the trailer for the Lord of
the Rings motion picture. I was floored.
I've always loved table top RPGs and used to play various ones... the
names of which I forget now. D&D was always my favorite, with wizards
being my favourite class to play. Rogues would be my second.
It was 2003 that I found Forum RPing. I loved to write and roleplay so
forum RPing came naturally to me. I was involved in various sites and one
in particular for over three years becoming a site mentor and all around
go-to person for all things fantasy. However, the site administration and
moderators slowly let the site slide into chaos and it became unmanageable
to play in. I left to find a new place to play.
Along comes Santharia in 2008! I fell in love with Santh the moment I saw
it and immediately began work on a CD. Of course, it had to be a mage
(water) and a non-human (humans and elves get boring...) so I made a
half-orc water mage. Not recommended for a "newbie", but I was no newbie
Off I went... six months later, I have six approved CDs, a mini-mod status
and a developer membership. I found my home and I'm here to stay. :)
