Hi everyone! Well, about myself: I like philosophy, spirituality, and nature. I love mountains and being on top of them especially. I have studied astrophysics, which was pretty interesting with quantum mechanics and relativity theory and such. My first encounter with roguelikes was Rogue, which according to this thread seems strangely uncommon. I had a friend on my school when I was about 13 years give me Rogue on a disc, so I installed it on my 286 or 386 (don't remember which one I had back then) and immediately loved it. Played it quite a lot and tried out nethack too, some years later. Later I never heard about such games anymore, until 3 or so years back I came across a graphical nethack, which I downloaded and played lots. After that came Dungeons of Dredmor, bought it immediately and been playing it since. My only real problem with the game is that it becomes too easy on lower levels (higher character levels), and I find myself starting random chars anew instead of loading up the more advanced chars that have gotten to floor 3. Right now I have resolved to finish the characters I have first before making a new one but it's hard since the thrill of trying to survive those first 2 levels (char levels) is awesome. My last random build I was sure to fail was a dualwielding crossbow mathemagician with psionics, magic training, leywalking and as dayjob archeologist. I had no bolts for a long long time but survived somehow until I now am pretty confident he can continue without too much trouble (finding that bolt vending machine was bliss). I love games in general, especially turn-based strategy games like Age of Wonders, space sims like X3: Terran Conflict and Mount and Blade Warband too. Some time back I started my very first FPS ever (okay, I guess I played Duke Nukem 3D) and created a clan for it which is fun. The game is APB (which Reloaded, luckily). Hmm what else? Well, I strive to improve myself and the world around me so that it can become a paradise.
