1. Vytautas.

2. 21 (so my recently gained rights include gambling and strip bar visiting, none of which I'm in a hurry to embrace).

3. No, and unlikely to be in the near future, given my very recent breakup with my girlfriend and resulting emotional state.

4. No.

5. 100% Lithuanian

6. Lithuania, in Eastern Europe (well more correctly Central, and according to one of about a zillion different methods of measurement, the center of the continent, but people rarely consider Russia an actual part of Europe, and so in their minds we get shifted towards the Eastern side. Just so you know).

7. Software engineer, working with meteorology and air pollution modelling.

8. Something not unlike my current job, if I got five times the current salary for half-time work :)

9. Reading books, playing in theater, watching horror movies and listening to heavy metal music.

10. Wisecracking.

11. Maybe a couple of years ago.

12. Playing - Dragon Warriors (in the original world of Legend), though I've first found out about the hobby when I stumbled upon and read AD&D2 Player's Handbook.

13. Fantasy.

14. Warlock, in Dragon Warriors.

15. Both.

16. Dragon Warriors, Rolemaster Fantasy Roleplaying and KULT (didn't see that one coming, did ya?).

17. Nope (though my dad does have a very nebulous understanding of nature of the hobby, after I once incorrectly decided it would be less trouble to try to explain it to him instead of vaguely mumbling something everytime he asks "so where are you going now?").

18. Yeah, more or less (two to three weekends a month). It's GURPS though, which is slightly less groovy. But I'm working on starting my own RMFRP group.

19. I found it while googling for a place to play my new found love Rolemaster PbP (which ironically I only started doing several months ago, in almost two years of membership).

20. It's a mangled shorthand for my full name, Vytautas (with 'c' instead of 'tz' in it's more usual form, which is pronounced the same way). Note: in both cases (and indeed the whole of Lithuanian language) 'y' should be pronounced as in 'steel'.

Cheers :)

Eh, what the hey...

1. What is your first name?
   Jeff

2. How old are you?
   34

3. Are you married?
   No

4. Have any kids?
   No, but I plan to someday have an army of clones that--I mean, no.

5. What nationality are you?
   American

6. What part of the world do you live in?
   Hollywood, California

7. What is your occupation?
   Grad student (physics).  Aspiring lots-of-other-things.

8. What would you like to do for a living?
   The problem is, there are too many things I want to do, so I'm having trouble concentrating on one.
   But, for a partial list: writing, music, game design...

9. What is your favourite hobby besides role-playing ? ;)
   See answer to #8.  Yes, I'd like to pursue my hobbies for a living, I guess...but then, doesn't everyone?

10. What do you think is your biggest talent?
     Imagination, if that counts as a talent.  I'm good at coming up with new worlds and ideas.
     Now, actually getting those ideas down on paper, maybe slightly less so, but hey...

11. When did you start role-playing?
     Uh...let's see...probably around...fourth grade?  So that would be...1982?
     No, wait, it has to have been before that, because I remember when the 1st-ed. Fiend Folio came out, and that was in 1981.  So...probably some time in the late 1970s.  I started young.

12. What game world/system did you start playing with first?
     First-edition Dungeons & Dragons

13. What is your favourite genre(s)?
     Hm...dunno.  If I had to pick one, I guess probably fantasy, but I also like sci-fi, superheroes...

14. What is your favourite character class?
     Again, dunno; I tend to go for variety.  Though I guess in D&D I've tended to favor cleric- and rogue-types over fighter- and wizard-types...and I don't know that I've played any other games that have "character classes", per se.

15. Would you rather be a player a GM or both?
     I prefer GMing, but like being a player once in a while too.

16. Do you have a favourite game system(s)?
     Nah; again, I like variety; don't really have a favorite.  Besides D&D, major systems I've played include the HERO System, GURPS, Call of Cthulhu, and the White Wolf system, and I'm certainly open to try out systems I haven't played before.

17. Does anyone else in your family role-play?
     Alas, no.  In fact, they all kind of look down on me for it.  Their loss.

18. Do you regularly play in a face to face rpg group?
     Yes.

19. So what brings you to “rpgResourceMasters” and how did you find us?
     I...honestly don't remember.  I found rpgResourceMasters a long time ago, but never got too involved here.  I'm thinking of changing that.

20. Could you please explain your username?
     No.  No, I really can't.  I mean, I could try, but it would come out as sort of incoherent and confusing and...there really isn't a concise explanation for it.  There just isn't.

1. What is your first name?  Simon.

2. How old are you?  38, unbelievably.

3. Are you married?  No.

4. Have any kids?  No.

5. What nationality are you?  British.

6. What part of the world do you live in?  The Great Wen, Londinium.

7. What is your occupation?  Lawyer by trade, currently taking time off.

8. What would you like to do for a living?  Effortlessly write popular books, highly paid restaurant column on the side.

9. What is your favourite hobby besides role-playing ?  Music (all kinds especially jazz).  Books and booze also feature strongly.

10. What do you think is your biggest talent?  Couldn't possibly choose just one.
 
11. When did you start role-playing?  Early eighties.

12. What game world/system did you start playing with first?  Tunnels & Trolls (with the yellow card covers) - mainly because the book was cheap and we didn't have much money.  Had some great times with it.

13. What is your favourite genre(s)?  Any genre will work for me if the players and story gel.  Probably low fantasy, historical and modern settings would be the first three to come to mind.

14. What is your favourite character class?  Don't really have one, though I always had a yen to play a monk in RM and run across the ceiling (never actually happened somehow). 

15. Would you rather be a player a GM or both?  Player for the time being (I am rusty).

16. Do you have a favourite game system(s)?  Of those I have played - RM and DragonQuest (2nd SPI edition including demonology of course!) were satisfyingly crunchy, T&T and Dragon Warriors were great fun for quick and dirty action.  Read but not played - HARP, CoC, Unknown Armies, Dying Earth all appeal.

17. Does anyone else in your family role-play?  If so, they haven't told me.

18. Do you regularly play in a face to face rpg group?  Not for the last eighteen years or so!

19. So what brings you to “rpgResourceMasters” and how did you find us?  I'm interested in getting back into the hobby and clicked on a link from rpggateway.com.

20. Could you please explain your username?  I stole it from a book (the deeply strange Ada or Ardor: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ada_or_Ardor:_A_Family_Chronicle).
