Hello everyone Since this summer I've been raptured by the forum games and I just looove it. The crowd here is amazing and very diverse. Since I'm quite new, I miss a lot of things in character interactions, because I don't know you at all. In roleplay, the character you play is very important, but underneath you can always find some version of the real you. I really miss the real RPG sessions I used to engage in when I was young and the kind of games we play here reminds me of that glorious period. In those sessions we had the advantage of knowing each other very well, which made for very fun games (with a lot less backstabbing though). Public profiles are an useful start, so long as the users put the time to provide some info, which is rarely the case. So this is why I started this thread, it's a kind of 'who are you and what do you do ?' specifically aimed at the players engaged in complex forum games like Mafia, NotW, SnF, RotMK and others. On a side note, so long as we're here, it could be useful to provide some info on your location or time zone, to get a feel for when people are around. Enough with the long post, here I go : I'm a 34 years old divorced guy with two daughters. I live in France, near Paris and work there. I began RPG when I was 10 with D&D while I was on a trip to England. At the same time discovered Tolkien and video games (C64), got hooked up ever since. My influences now range from Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, Robert Rankin to Ann Rice, to name a few. I was of the offense wizard type at first when gradually I chose to play less flamboyant characters that act more behind the group as support (cleric, mage), or some kind of sniper/ranger/loner/elf (how fitting dissensions is...). I have access to the Internet at work (and use it excessively),but usually I wait until I get home to really engage in play. A typical session would be between 07:00 PM and midnight. Time being,of course GMT+1. I sincerely hope this will spark some interest as I am a curious and friendly type of guy. Nothing is compulsory of course. See you soon in a game.
