Quick facts:

*I have a degree in journalism advertising that I've never used.

*I work in a laboratory with people who do science. I mostly get in the way and keep up moral with my "unique" people skills.

*I met my husband on Star Wars Galaxies.

*I love RPG's, both Massively Multi-player and standard offline ones.

*I'm fascinated by survival horror games, but usually too chicken to play them.

*I dabble in all forms of nerdery so chances are if you're into something geeky so am I, though not to equal degrees.

*I used to make toys.





Currently Playing:
(so much) Ark Survival Evolved




Favorite Games:
Mass Effect 1 & 2 & 3, Portal, Final Fantasy VIII, The Witcher, Azure Dreams, Sims 1 & 2, Lego Star Wars, and other stuff I can't think of right now.




MMO's I've played:
SWG, Vanguard, Ryzom, EQ2, CoH/CoV, Guild Wars, LOTRO, Star Wars TOR, Conan, and millions (literally) of the freebie ones.




Community Awesomeness:

I've been interviewed by LawofThermalDynamics.

The wildly talented AlphaDeus made me a theme song. Momeration

I'm an element on the Destructoid periodic table. Thanks Corduroy Turtle


I got a card!


Thanks Qalamari
