Getting to know you

So I figure, the board has been open now for 2 1/2 years now. Originally, as some of you know and were present for, this was a hate board for Everquest's Solusek Ro. That lasted a week =x My bandwidth went apeshit and I had to disable the board, thus Solrorage was born. That's another story though.

So 2 1/2 years down the line, the board has seen game art for EQ, EQ2, COH and Wow with a few other's mixed in. Then we had a migration of sorts from another art board, which will remain nameless and over the past 6 months or so, seen a lot of newer people that were friends of friends come over. So ultimately the board has become more than an eq art board and into a full blown community. I've had old friends come through commenting on how diverse the board is now mixed in with 'who the hell is that?' =D So I figured, why not do a 'who are you' type post?

Who ya be?
Who ya know on TAC?
What brought you here?
Do you know Mae (and did we hate each other at one point? ) ?
What games ya played?
Do you art?
Do you write?
Like to read, if so, what?
Have you Mafia'd? (if no, WHY NOT?)
Do you post regularly?
Do you consider your internet friends as dear as RL friends (or in some cases better friends)?

Consider some of those questions when posting about yourself. Think of a few to ask the next person as well.

I expect EVERYONE to do this. =D

Superstitions = not really
Phobias....hmm, anything that reminds me of a hospital really, dentists, doctor, nurses, even vet's make me wary. Not scared of needles though, just medical stuff.

Do you know Mae (and did we hate each other at one point? ) ? Nope
What games ya played? First was Everquest. Then I got bored and quit.. swore off online gaming forever. A month later I picked up World of Warcraft. Quit that about 2 months ago and swore off online gaming forever again... 1 week later went out and bough City of Villians.. played for about a month.. swore off online gaming again.. Now I play my xbox with my hubby Yay for Tiger Woods golfing!
Do you art? I try to! Im not as good as I'd like to be. I suffer from having great ideas in my head and no ability to putting them on paper.. Im working on it though.

Beli 17 years ago
I expect EVERYONE to do this. =D

Oh, good.

Who ya be?

Right now, I'm Beli Flinthammer in WoW. Past identities have been Pedi Dustyboots for Everquest and Amy Grendel for comic book boards. I kind of regret not having the same name all through the years, but I honestly never thought I'd still know the same people after jumping through different games. I thought each game would be a clean slate with a different crowd, no need to remind people who you used to be, yadda ydada. Boy, was I wrong! I'll definitely have to keep this in mind the next time my husband and I decide on a new game and what race we'll play next.

Who ya know on TAC?

People from NS and SMMO, although some have different handles here. Anyone that's here from DA, I'm not familiar with. I'm still figuring out DA myself, really, much less tapping into the DA social network.

What brought you here?

Roz's been twisting my arm to join an exchange of hers for months now and I finally had the free time to join the last CYOA one.

Do you know Mae (and did we hate each other at one point? ) ?

Yep, I knew Mae. I remember doing artwork for Mae as a dark elf with moth wings because she was a creature of the night. (Y'know, she was the social butterfly at NS and I thought the theme fit, heh.) No, I didn't hate her, but she did have rabies and was required to bring a doctor's note saying she had her shots. (I keed, I keed. The answer is still no either way.)

What games ya played?

EQ, DAoC, CoH, WoW

Do you art?

Yes, strictly as a hobby, not for money or anything. When I was in college, I started to get into Wonder Woman comics and I was frustrated with the lack of wallpapers I could put on my desktop so I had to scan in images from the books. I was so exasperated with the amount of Superman, Spiderman, Batman fan-made wallpapers that I desperately wished that I had a drawing superpower so I could churn out Wonder Woman fan art for my computer, too. After all these years, I've never drawn Wonder Woman fan art, but in every art exchange I do, my mission is to give people wallpapers of their character first and foremost. I still remember how cool it is to be able to put something on the desktop and have your heroine splashed across with the name emblazoned in big letters. That's basically what fuels my motivations to do fan/MMO art.

Do you write?

I'll put out the occasional roleplay story based on my character in WoW, but they tend to reflect events that actually happened in the game. Coming up with imaginary characters or backgrounds takes more brain juice than I can part with so those kind of stories happen infrequently. My husband really gets into game lore and writing roleplay stories so I do my part by contributing screenshot artwork to help polish it up.

Like to read, if so, what?

I loved, loved reading forensic and criminology books. This was before CSI came out and the nation got caught up in the forensic craze. It used to be a small, dark corner of the world that I could explore and feel like I was into something that was almost a secret. Now it's kinda no fun with everyone being into it, blah. I have kept up with the Harry Potter books as well. The last few times I went to the library, I found myself checking out biographies of various people. I guess I'm just curious how some people live their lives these days. (Last one I read was Brooke Shield's "Down Came the Rain" about postpartum depression, which just broke my heart to know what kind of a suffering a mother can go through.)

Have you Mafia'd? (if no, WHY NOT?)

No. I don't even know what it is. Something tells me that I don't have the time for it either. I'm already trying to dodge my husband's attempts to get me to do paper D&D with him!

Do you post regularly?

Here, not yet. At the other boards I visit, yes. I don't see the point in being a lurker at a board -- it's a little too voyueristic, IMO, and not really fair to those who do participate. Just how I see it, that's all.

Do you consider your internet friends as dear as RL friends (or in some cases better friends)?

Of course! People from the internet showed up at my wedding and they are more excited for the happy events in my life than my regular RL friends are, y'know? I still haven't told any of my bridesmaids that I'm expecting and I'm already five months along, lol.
Laschae 17 years ago
I figured since I'm going to be annoying and start posting here I may as well =P


Who ya be?
Laschae? My kids call me Mama, my mother calls me Erin most of the time..does anyone elses mom call them by their siblings name?!

Who ya know on TAC?
People from SMMO mostly although I don't really *know* them but I might like to.

What brought you here?
Hmmm...curiousity? Wanting to meet new people...and I think that people over here won't get pissed if I use the F word frequently? Plus I'm absolutely floored and inspired by most of the people that post here.

Do you know Mae (and did we hate each other at one point? ) ?
Not intimately. But I've admired her for years and tried desperately to gank her style when I first started out. Do you hate me Roz?!

What games ya played?
EQ, WoW, Vanguard beta

Do you art?
I pretend to.

Do you write?
I used to write daily as a teenager but my ex kept reading it and accusing me of writing negative shit about him so I stopped. Fucking men...

Like to read, if so, what?
Love to read. Fantasy, drama, crime, horror, anything that is compelling.

Have you Mafia'd? (if no, WHY NOT?)
No, I'm still a little perplexed by it but I wanna try it!

Do you post regularly?
Not yet, but if I feel comfortable here I probably will.

Do you consider your internet friends as dear as RL friends (or in some cases better friends)?
Absolutely. Having had a rough patch in life the last few years I don't think I would be sane right now if I didn't have the support of my internet friends. Besides I met my boyfriend on EQ

Questions from Verileah:
What are you listening to –right now-?
Robbie Williams- Back For Good live on YouTube.

What was the last book you read?
Harry Potter erm 6th book I think.

What was the last movie you saw?
Happy Feet or Flushed Away....the shit I endure for my kids.

Tell me a story. Any story, so long as it’s true...
Hmmmm....That's a tough question...ahaha..my boyfriend once posted dirty pictures of me on a website and when some one I knew found out about it (and saw it I assume) I denied knowing anything about it...even though I knew exactly what my boyfriend was doing. And no, no one needs to know what website the picture is on. ><

Questions from Maeya:
1. Favorite teacher during your school years and why?
Probably Mr. Simmons, he was my homeroom and art teacher. He was a cool guy and always had fun in his classes.

2. Describe your favorite t-shirt.
It's green and says Made In Ireland on it.

3. In a fight between Mr. T and McGuyver - who would win? (if you say Mr. T, you're wrong)
McGuyver with the mullet from hell, of course.

4. Were you a horrible child or were you pretty tame?
As a child I was very shy so I stuck close to my mom and didn't cause much trouble. As a teenager, thats a whole 'nother story!

From Ryala:
Do you have any superstitions or phobias?
Yes! I'm scared to death of small spaces or being closed in. I don't like blood or needles much and I have been known to cry like a 3 year old when I have to be poked!

From Kaytana:
Have you ever hit an animal with your car?
Nope, dunno how to drive.

From Xandare:
whats the strangest thing you've ever put in your mouth?

From Merreck:
If you could take a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Ireland, hands down.

Are you right handed or left handed?
Right, my left hand is nearly useless.

How is the weather right now?
29 degrees and sunny, yesterday we had a blizzard damn near.

From Mileron:
If you could pick one meal to eat three times a week forever, what would it be?
A good steak, baked potato all decked out, nice buttery corn.

If you could pick one LEGAL method to get rich, what would it be?
I have some interst in real estate, i love architecture, so yea.

From Calimaryn:
Do you cook and if so what is your favorite thing to make?
I do! I like to make roasted chicken, I think I do it pretty well. I think the kids like spaghetti best.

From Mai:
What was your favorite stuffed animal as a child?
My Cabbage Patch doll my dad got me when I was 7. I actually had the damn thing until I left my husband last year....she's probably in a landfill somewhere now.

What occupation did you want to be when you grew up?
A rock star.

Do you still want to be it?
I've come to the realization that fat chicks do not make good rock stars. So nah not really.

From Shay:
Where is the most fun/strange place you've ever 'done it':
In an abandonned boat in the middle of a field.

Where is the most exotic place you've ever been:
I haven't travelled much, I guess Chicago is the biggest place I've ever been, I don;t know that it was exotic. =P

Reading, watching movies with my boyfriend, playing with my kids.

Questions from Verileah:
What are you listening to –right now-?

Some guys on Youtube swear they will confess before a Senate committee that UFOs are real...
(I never said I was normal...)

What was the last book you read?
The last NEW book I read was...ahh hell I don't remember the title, but it had something to do with this guy who goes into Darkside, a sort of underbelly of reality where magic and monsters exist. His talent is finding things, and he was looking for the Anti-Grail. The cup that Judas drank from during the Last Supper.

The last book I actually read was one of the Disc World books by Terry Pratchett that I've read like 10 times already. "Thief of Time."

What was the last movie you saw?
Uhm... Damn. I'm old. All this memory work is killing me. "Arsenic and Old Lace" with Cary Grant, last night. I love his comedic roles.

Tell me a story. Any story, so long as it’s true...
I once tried to stop a kidnapping by sneaking up on a man with a shotgun with ideas of bludgeoning him with a barstool. It didn't work...

Questions from Maeya:
1. Favorite teacher during your school years and why?

John Ed Garrett, from fourth grade. Because he read stories every day after recess.

2. Describe your favorite t-shirt.
It's a gray, no pocket T-shirt about a half size too big, with a tear just above the hem line on the right hand side. The collar is frayed, and it has various other small tears in it. I LOVE that shirt.

3. In a fight between Mr. T and McGuyver - who would win? (if you say Mr. T, you're wrong)
Unless McGuyver had access to lots of broken refrigerators and car parts, Mr. T. Otherwise, Mac, would make an Uzi out of stuff and gun him down.

4. Were you a horrible child or were you pretty tame?
I was tame. I liked to read, and began doing so at the age of 4. (No kidding.)

From Ryala:
Do you have any superstitions or phobias?

One of each. You always give a knife back the way it was given to you. Open if open, closed if closed. As for phobias...erg. I don't like heights, but don't let that stop me. I will go to the edge and lean over, just so I can say I did it, even though I can feel my feet eeking up through my stomach.

From Kaytana:

I grew up in the country. It was inevitable. I've hit at least one dog, and I don't know how many raccoons, opossums, random varmints...

According to my mother, I wanted to be a lion tamer. According to me, I still have no damn idea.

Do you still want to be it?
If I could figure out what it is, I might. I have a career, but it's really just a job. I don't hate it, but I'm not particularly in love with it either...

From Shay:
Where is the most fun/strange place you've ever 'done it':

Uhm...either behind home plate of a high school baseball diamond, or at night standing on the side of the road under a cloak as people walked by. Both were rather intense.

Sangre's Questions:
What is the scariest thing(s) that's ever happened to you?

Sitting in a car watching a huge orange light float over a field near my childhood home. I was about 7 or 8 maybe. It made no noise, had fuzzy edges, and was bigger than the car. I was terrified of it, and I don't know why.


FyreGarnett's Question:
If you won the lottery, what would you do?

Pay off the immediate bills of my closest friends, build a large house with an indoor swimming pool and give my parents enough money to retire. Then I'd buy a 75' flag pole, bury it in the backyard, sit a bag filled with $10,000.00 in it, and charge people 5 bucks a pop to try and climb it. I'd sit there with my feet up and a glass of something vaguely alcoholic and sweet to pass the time.


If you could be anything, absolutely anything at all (profession) what would it be?
A game designer.

Do you have any tattoos? If so, what?
