this is attempt number ... I lost count ... to introduce myself in this forum.
Let's see if it works today.
First and most important of all:
I like YAFGC very much. Nice comic, good characters and stories.
Please keep on doing the good work and never stop it.
I'm started reading the comic a few month ago after stumbling over a link to your side somewhere in the GiantITP forums as far as I remember.
I couldn't stop when working through the archive from the very first strip to the latest.
Now I often find myself being anxious for the newest comic strip.
Some lines about me.
I'm from Germany. Thus English is not my native language and please don't judge me to hard if slip to much into a German-English grammar mix-up or similar.
My RPG "career" started more than 15 years ago with one of the still today most popular PnP RPGs in Germany: Das schwarze Auge ("Realms of Arkania" or "The Dark Eye" outside of German speaking regions).
Over the years I tried several other RPGs like Earthdawn, AD&D, Shadowrun, etc.
After this I got stuck on D&D 3.x for a longer while and - with great influence from my computer and especially MMO activities - started to like D&D 4 very much. But unfortunatelly I haven't found that much time to play it, yet.
I as well played a lot of Vampre: The Masquerade LARP (later as PnP as well) and Fantasy LARP (and did a little Middle Ages reenactment).
Climax of this (LARP) activities was some GM experience on a few LARPs I organized with my friends.
When I had to move from northern Germany to southern Germany for a new job I was forced to first reduce and later cancel most of my LARP activities.
I only regret missing of few parts of this whole stuff.
My other great hobby (and sometimes menace) are the video games.
It stated with some very old Might & Magic titles. Went through Diablo 1 and 2. Crossed several strategy games (Battle Isle, C&C, Warcraft, Starcraft) and a phase of browser gaming to evolve to MMOs and other current games. To mention the latest and best titles: Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age: Origins, The Force Unleashed 2, Fallout: New Vegas).
When not gaming or reading a good fantasy book (at present: "Slay and Rescue" from John Moore) I work as IT support (1st and 2nd level) for a big company. Or in other words "nursing" a bunch of DAUs ("dumbest assumable user" or "luser" as English equivalent as far as my dictionary tells me
HA! Finished! Finally! ;P
Well... OK. I forgot to put one part in this block of text somewhere.
Over the time I worked on a bunch of fantasy stuff.
Homebrewed RPG ideas and a few stories.
Unfortunatelly (for you
) none of it is in English.
But if I translate some of it one day, I'll provide it to you. Promise!
Ich habe fertig. /bow
