Oh, me? I'm just some guy, you know?
Alternatively: I'm a 26-year-old student at the University of Memphis, majoring in Japanese, minoring in Weeaboo, with a certificate in being ridiculously nerdy. Inexplicably, everyone I meet in real life seems surprised that I am a nerd at all. I play just about every genre of games out there, with an especial focus on stultifyingly intricate RPGs and soul-shatteringly hard action games. I listen to a vast array of bands that bring me glee when I hear their sounds, and have a slim chance of overjoying me again when I meet someone else who's heard of them. I take and enjoy philosophy courses. I read obscure English poems. As my handle may indicate, I'm obsessed with Voltaire. I watch a whole lot of anime. I'm developing a penchant for beer snobbery. I'm writing short stories whenever I have time. I am prone to bouts of self-criticism and navel-gazing. I am painfully self-aware. I am, in short, nerdiness personified.
I don't hang around IRC much anymore, but I'll keep this ancient cockboard down there as a memorial to some truly rad people I don't see these days.
So yes, we didnít have a show last week. I know, I noticed. The bad news is that the same personnel problems that led to last week being cancelled are present this week, which means Ryu canít run his usual campaign. The good news, however, is that there will still be a show tonight, 6pm PST/9pm EST over on Streamtoid.
Specifically, I am taking the reigns to run some PvP (still using the Legend system) with some mid-level characters. Our usual cast is here, with the unfortunate absence of one king3vbo, and theyíve rolled up some, er, interesting characters for your viewing pleasure. They will square off in 2v2 combat in a scenario and setting of my design, and I plan to make them suffer.
So stop on by, watch us battle it out in a great little d20 RPG system, on a great virtual tabletop client, while we swear, draw obscene pictures on the pretty maps, mock each othersí builds, and discuss our unhealthy interest in Charles Barkley.
P.S.: I guess usually when I'm on a stream/podcast we'd solicit your stupid questions, but in this case I will ask that you propose the most ridiculous RPG characters you can imagine, and we will tell you how to build them in Legend. If your idea is particularly rad, we may use it the next time we do PvP. Tell me about how much you want to see a Raptor Demoman in the comments, please.
