Birched
Name: Birched

Age: Can find my correct birth year (don't trust anything else) on the site. Calculating the difference is left as an exercise for the reader. (I'm probably older than you, and don't care to discuss the details.)

Location: This is mentioned in a post on the boards somewhere, eh?

Notable Facts:

Favorite Band: Air Supply. I'm so out of touch it makes me sad....

Favorite Book: not sure about favourite, but fiction series I like are Malazan Book of the Fallen (Steven Erikson) and Song of Ice and Fire (George RR Martin); recently read and was very impressed by a short story collection by Neil Gaiman; I've enjoyed some of Neal Stephenson's stuff; once thought I liked Robert Jordan but by book four or five I was ready to tear my eyes out if I saw just one more unoriginal full page description of someone's outfit (I swear the guy had a button fetish) or saw another mention of anyone pulling on their hair

Favorite Movie: I like many movies. Seems a shame to single one out. But 'Revenge Of The Nerds' really struck a chord in my soul.

Favorite Sport: Tai Chi Boxing, Cycling, Speed-Typing.

Spirit Animal: I feel quite comfortable echoing Saros here: Flying spaghetti monster.

Note: Birched is a family man that kindly donates his time to making this website better on it's fundamental level - the code. He is highly involved with the way our site works, please support his efforts!

Admin Chuck
Name: Chuck. Shocking, right?

DOB: 1980

Location: Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

General info: I have a Bachelor's degree in Biology and am looking at going back to school for an MBA in Management. I have several times been giving the label of a brainy jock, due to my enjoyment of sports and love of reading.

Current Profession: Storeroom Clerk(There's much more to what I do than the name implies.)

Career Pursuit: Ecological Restoration

Notable Facts: I am both a "devout" atheist and a "confirmed" agnostic. I am the first person in my extended family to receive a 4 year degree. I was selected as a Deep South All Star every year that I played rugby, even my rookie year. Often mistaken for Chuck Norris because my beard has another fist beneath it too.

Favorite Book: I read too much to pick a favorite, but my current favored authors are Jim Butcher, Patrick Rothfuss, and Brandon Sanderson.

Favorite Band: Again, I listen to a lot of music, though some of my favorites are Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Eminem, Cowboy Mouth, Modest Mouse, and Garth Brooks.

Favorite Cookie: The one in my hand.

Started Playing D&D: 1996

Favorite Movie: The Princess Bride

Favorite Sport: I've played all sorts of sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball, Volleyball, Racquetball and Track and Field), both competitively and casually, but found rugby in college and it tops them all.

Admin RonarsCorruption
Name: Michael

DOB: 1985

Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, eh?

Notable Facts: Games are my life, literally. By day, I write flash games. By night (well, slightly later day) - tabletop RPG. I'm currently publishing an adventure path called From the Deep, through Dreamscarred Press. You can find it on sale at Paizo.

Favorite Band: Great Big Sea, although Arrogant Worms is a close second.

Favorite Book: Biography of a Space Tyrant (series).

Admin TeufelHeunden
Name: Teufel Heunden

Age: I'm not young enough to know everything. But I'm not old enough to admit that I don't.

Location: Somewhere in the time space continuum (most of the time)

Notable Facts: Back when I was your age, I had to climb to the top of Mt Evil every day, uphill both ways, fighting off hordes of Orcs with nothing but a +1 dagger that I didn't even have Weapon Proficiency with! You see, we didn't have fancy feats like Cleave or Improved Critical. We only got a new Weapon Proficiency every three levels, and we were darned grateful! I cut my teeth with Gyax & Arneson Tactical Study Rules for Dungeons & Dragons (3 Volume Set) and still have the original set in the box.

Favorite Band: Mainly any rock band I happen to be listening to.

Favorite Book: Currently happens to be the Kusheil series by Jacqueline Carey: Kushiel's Legacy series in order: Kushiel's Dart, Kushiel's Chosen, Kushiel's Avatar, Kushiel's Scion, Kushiel's Justice and Kushiel's Mercy.

Jondera
Name: Ian

Age: Either older or younger than I look, depending on who you ask and the circumstances of observation.

Born: In a hospital

Location: Central Wisconsin

Description: Pretty much average in all ways, except for having horrendously and uncontrollably curly hair, and having a mole on my right cheek... which means that I'm much more instantly recognizable than most people.

Notable Facts: I'm a skilled classical violinist, having played for over 18 years. I'm also practiced in several varieties of fiddle music, and have played with internationally known folk groups in multiple styles.

Favorite Musical Group: To many to list. Most common selections include (in no particular order): A Perfect Circle, Styx, Tristania, Solas, Muse, The Decemberists, Nightwish, Seven Nations, Poe, The Rasmus, and Epica. And classical stuff - I'm especially fond of Grieg and Carl Orff.

Favorite Book: My list of favorite books makes my list of favorite music groups seem minuscule... when one is raised by a librarian, one reads a lot. However, I will pick out a few favorite books that I go back and reread more than others: In Fury Born, by David Weber, God Stalk, by Patricia Hodgell, A Tapestry of Magics, by Brian Daley, 1632, by Eric Flint.

Favorite Movie: Um. Not much of a movie watcher. It generally fluctuates between several different films directed by Hiyao Miyazaki.

Favorite Sport: Um... probably ultimate frisbee. I don't play sports much.

Favorite Personal Quote: "Your logic may be perfect, but my illogic is perfecter."


Nimlos
Name: Greg

Location: Texas

Job: Private investigator.

Favorite Band: Varies by mood. If it's not gangsta rap, screamo, hyperactive speed metal or atonal Eastern music, chances are I like it.

Favorite Book: Hard to pick. Presuming we're talking fiction ... Huck Finn, Cuckoo's Nest, LotR, anything by Carl Hiassen when I'm in the mood for fast and funny.

Favorite Movie: Beats me. I'm a sucker for film noir. Raiders is a perennial favorite. I love movies, but never have the time to watch them anymore.

Favourite TV Show: Current? Burn Notice. Ever? That's tough. I'll give the nod to Buffy.

Favorite Sport: I'm from Texas. Football is the only sport. Everything else is just a game. Go Frogs!

Gaming since: 1977. Or '78. Not entirely sure. Well before most of you were born.
