Hi! I'm Nyz. I'm brand new to this incarnation of SoI, and haven't played in earnest since the Battalions, prior to the siege of Osgiliath.

I'm in my late 20s, training to be a baker (mmmm, make cookies for money? Don't mind if I do!), and am a lifelong gamer, from battlefield to indie pencil/paper RPGs. I live in Canada with my differently nerdy partner. I like my coffee black, my curry spicy, and my books in hardcover.

I'm pleased to still recognize the occasional name!

That's cool, more Canadians. Any of the various Canadians live in Toronto?

I talked to one last week, he said he shot a bear with a crossbow from a tree, nice feller.

Oh dear, I'm afraid he likely only made it angry. A bear once came into my igloo in Toronto, it only went away after I apologised profusely.

I was in Toronto for a whole week this past spring and fell in love with the city. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Sorry to hear that, old boy. Also sorry to hear you're no longer married. I never knew you were English originally!

Yes, sir. Born and bred in Liverpool (actually St.Helens, but everyone knows where Liverpool is) :) Are you playing again or just lurking the forums?

HI JDIDDS!

HI RIVEAN!

Two of my favorites back in one place. I love it.

Spoiler alert: everyone's my favorite.

I'm Don. When I applied for my admin name on old SOI, I requested the avatar name "Death". I was denied and told to pick something "flowery", which's why I am now Songweaver.

I was Jaunt on Atonement. I built that game from the ground up with the help of Kithrater, Krelm and Wolfsong. And I destroyed humanity later on with the help of Tiamat and Viking.

I'm 30 years old now, which apparently makes me older than most of you!

I'm professional stage actor/director. I also usually bartend once or twice a week to help supplement my love for whiskey and tequila.

I used to play a lot of young, romantic leads on stage. Now, I mostly play villains - and I love it.

My cat of 9 years just died. She was pretty epic. Not envisioning another pet my in my near future.

I have a girlfriend of three years who is also an actor like me. She tolerates my nerdiness rather kindly, and I tolerate her jewishness rather kindly.

I prefer dark senses of humor and dark stories. I'm probably actually rather morbid. I doubt you'll ever find me playing a PC that is truly happy.

I live in Ohio. Whooooo. But it's not so bad, really.

Songweaver, did you also play Lost Tales of Beleriand? Your name makes my memories of the game itch...

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, it sounds like a big loss.

I'm Twitchy. I played as Chucklezz on ARPI, PRPI, and late on the old SoI. I spent a lot of time at HL before that.

I'm a 21 year old male, and engaged to the most wonderful girl on our planet. :D
I live in the redneck heaven that is Oklahoma, and I love it. I fish and hunt often, and think it's great to eat food that I produced myself, and didn't come from a factory.

I dropped out of college to pursue a career in IT. I've been at my current position for two years, and it has treated my very well thus far.

I love a good brew. Or even a cheap beer. I just like to drink. PBR is what I've been drinking, of late. Nice and inexpensive. I also have a bottle of Fireball and Jack at my house at all times.

Music is my true passion, though. I am play guitar in a Red Dirt band, but I love all genres. We are gigging actively, and hoping to get our newest EP out soon! Margot and the Nuclear So and So's is probably my favorite band right now. Their newest album is great!

I would post a picture, but I'm lazy. I will later. :P

Jaunt, it was thanks to your game and the progression that finally convinced me to play a perma-death mud. Atonement at the time I joined to the end was awesome. When are you going to do another one?

Nyneve wrote:Personally, I think it's interesting to view people on the forums as people rather than names on a screen. It helps me, anyway, remember to try and always be kind even when I disagree, or when we argue.

So, who are you? What do you like to do? You obviously don't need to put like, your real name and address and social security number or anything. But yeah.

I'm Nyneve.
I'm 22.
I'm married.
I live in the deep south of the USA.
I'm in college. If all goes well (aka I don't fail Spanish), I'm graduating in December.
My favorite color is forest green.
I have 2 cats, Merlin and Turnip. They're both ambiguously named girls and I love them more than people.
My favorite food is probably barbecue.
I put hot sauce on just about anything that isn't sweet. Tobasco is king. I love spicy food.
I can probably outdrink you, despite being a white girl.
That's because my drink of choice is straight whiskey. Maker's Mark, Jack Daniels, sometimes Fireball in the winter.
Other than that, I drink obscene amounts of coffee. Black.
I have green eyes and auburn hair. I'm pale. It sucks.
I write stupid amounts of poetry.

I like reading, running, frequent Netflix binges, swimming, watching the World Cup, going to football games, and building things. (I'm the fix-it person in our little household.)

Oh, and uhh... USA!USA!USA! I BELIEVE THAT WE WILL WIN!
If I remember correctly from a picture you posted on the old forums, you are indeed quite hot. You left that bit out :) Happy to help.
