    My name's Jono (short for Jonathan). I live in [wiki]Ramat HaSharon[/wiki], which borders [wiki]Herzliya[/wiki] in the north. I don't remember why I originally came to CFC, but I remember NotW2 was what drew me to the Forum Games.

    EDIT: And I turn 17 in January.

In the Gaming, I'm enjoying most WarCraft III, World of WarCraft, CivIII: PTW, Jazz Jackrabbit 2 (ya old classic) and Tzar. From forums games I like those childesh one (ABC sentence and other) and My Tune Quiz. I used to enjoy Lyrics Quiz, but It's dead now :cry:. I'm a musicoholic.

    I wouldn't normally do this, but I've noticed Izipo around and you seem like a nice guy. So this is for you:

    My name is Jules and I'm 29. I was born in England, but grew up in Zambia till age 7. I originally come from Goa, in India, and my family has had a long affinity and relationship with Africa. Aside from a short stint living and going to school in the USA, I've lived in England ever since leaving Zambia. I currently live in London with my girlfriend, who just recently became my fiance! We're getting married next year in Belgrade, Serbia, where she is from.

    I have a degree in Communications, and specialised in Advertising (semiotics) and Fine Art Photography (theory more than practice). After copy writing at some ad agencies, I soon realised that I was working with the devil in a demonic world and quit. So I went into the film industry and, after writing screenplays and radio plays to get poor, started producing and production managing all manner of audio-visual products; TV commercials (the devil is everywhere), music videos, short films, longer films, documentaries, corporate videos (there he is again), charity videos etc etc. In the course of doing this I gained many other qualifications related to this work.

    However, as I started looking further into the future, I soon got fed up with the freelance nature of such work, as you simply can't plan your life, nor know where the next penny is coming from. So I packed up after 4 years of really good fun (maybe too much!) and a bucket loads of cool experiences. This time was also peppered with freelance journalism work, DJing (I'm mad about music), arts pundit stuff on radio and photography here and there too.

    For the last 4 years I've been working as a broker in the international corporate finance world. It seriously bores the crap out of me, which is how I came to post on CFC, but it pays the bills and you can affect some good in the world through this job. I'm not really turned on by it though and I may well cave in to my old film friends one day to go back and join the media circus.

    I was a keen sportsman as a kid, so I never played any computer games seriously and never really touched RPGs or D&D. I did however play Civ as a sole exception, infrequently, but in epic sessions, and have played all the versions of it right from Civ I. Nowadays, I still play it a bit, but there are new matters to take me away from that and CFC.

    To everyone who introduced themselves here: Nice to meet you. :hatsoff:

    Well I'm 28 as you can see from my profile. Currently occupying the vast forested area between russia and sweden [CET / GMT+2]. Unlike most computer/tech/game people here, I make my living by melting metal alloys with electric current. It's not the most glorious work, but it keeps me fed.

    I don't even remember why I did join CFC since it's been quite a while. I was absent for some time, but when I returned, some unknown power led me to the forum games and I've been here ever since. I try to make my appearance here daily after a hard workday. I guess it's my way to escape the reality.

    I hope to never grow too old to play games.

    Okay, time for some necromancy.
    I hope it will not be frowned upon, but seeing as there's some new guys and NotW XV is about to start...

    So, who are you guys ?

    I have reached the ripe old age of 18, which has all sorts of benefits. And I too am curious to hear from the new guys. :mischief:
