What Character Are You?
I've often wondered about the other Gamegrene addicts that float around here. Who are you guys? Where are you? What do you do when you aren't gaming? We did this once on another forum (metal related) and found out that three of us lived in the same city and so we started doing a radio show together.
I'll gladly go first.
My name is Scott, obviously. I'm 31 and live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I'm a property manager for a chain of boutique hotels. I get to live in one of our buildings, so my place looks like something out of a fancy magazine...completely at odds with my past, where I spent 13 years living on a farm. It's kinda nice to game there though; makes me feel important while GMing. LOL. I used to be a sales and marketing manager with a cell phone company. Let me tell you this with certainty...if you want a purely negative experience, go work for a phone company!
I was a DJ for the better part of the last half of my life, but gave it up because I couldn't stand the people in "the scene". Raves suck. I realized one night that I was the oldest guy at the party, so I quit. I started doing a metal radio show soon after though; metal is my first love. I stopped doing the radio show though when I realized it was not cathartic anymore and had become self-destructive (death metal and beer for 6 hours can get to you after awhile).
My favorite food is bloody rare steak, my favorite drink is Guiness with a bourbon on the side, my favorite band is Slayer, and when I'm not gaming or hanging out with Tara (10 years last month!) and Hobbes (Hobbes is part leopard, so he takes what he wants when he wants it) I'm generally throwing myself down 60kmh+ hills on my racing skateboard. Last month I lost about a pound of flesh to some concrete when I took a spill on a patch of sand. I slid 6 feet at about 25mph with only my right arm touching the ground. The scar will live forever, but at least I have a great story to tell when people ask about it!
Perhaps one of the things about me that surprises people the most is that I'm also an ordained reverend. I don't generally talk about that though unless someone specifically asks; religion and politics aren't the best conversations to have with strangers.
