The EU forums are cobweb-infested, but this place is relatively lively. Sucks I can't play with you guys, though.

Cash out and migrate :P

My name is Garrett and I live in Sellersburg Indiana. I am now a full time real estate professional and am doing everything I can to get my business up and running. Until recently I was selling overhead crane and hoist service programs and before that I worked for large banks as a branch manager and loan officer. I am 34 and have 3 small kids which take up a lot of my time.

I'm Art, 38, from Colorado Springs.

Formerly known as Hoff and Wharrgarbl.

I'm this generation's Ernest Hemingway with a Scotch, not Absinthe, addiction.

Those of you which have talked to me on mumble and know what I do, or have done, will get how fitting and true that is.

I'm James, 20, and I'm currently studying for my physics undergraduate degree in Oregon State. I work part-time in a Construction Engineering research lab at my college, and I play water polo and am in our Kendo club.

I live in a small apartment with my girlfriend and my hobbies include long walks on the beach and paying rent on time.

Oh, man. I've always wanted to try out kendo. I fenced (epee) for about seven years before freak injuries piled up (injured shoulder after getting run over during football, sprained ankle running bases during baseball, broken wrist while snowboarding) and I had to call it quits for an extended period of time. I miss it... should really go back to it. Anyway, don't know if you ever get this, but don't you hate it when people get kendo and fencing mixed up?

How can someone know enough to even recognize the word 'kendo', and yet somehow still mix it up with fencing?

Other class forums are already doing this, so as per Vaeflare’s request, here’s where wizards can get together for a Meet & Greet session :)

Tell us about yourself!

I’m Jeff from New York. I currently do PR for small businesses and I used to be a fulltime bartender. I’m about 2.5 years removed from college so I’m actually quite young compared to many of the players here (or so it seems). I live by myself, but my ‘rents and kid brother stop through every weekend to hang.

Here’s a photo of me sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon this past summer:

Your turn.

My name's Vaeflare, and I'm a Community Manager for a little game called Diablo III. ;)

I currently live in Irvine, California, and in my spare time I do a lot of art and writing. Here's a photo of me from E3 this year.

Random Vaeflare Facts:

  • I used to do falconry (hawking) with a red-tailed hawk.
  • I have a cat who knows about 15 tricks and walks on a leash, and often comes to work with me.
  • I have a parrot that is the quietest parrot I know.
  • I'm currently raising monarchs.
  • I put together a lot of the assets you see in our blogs here on the community site.
  • I love velociraptors, nature, and video games, and I could talk your ear off about RoboCop too.
  • Reply Quote
    Well, this would be a lot easier if I could hyperlink like Vaeflare!

    Ah, well. I am living in the mountains of Western North Carolina, go to Dragon Con every year, and actually am a wizard. chuckle. An artist's model for wizards and fantasy sages that is.

    I suppose I should mention that I have been playing Diablo since version 1, all these many years ago. :)

    And since it was asked, I am the wizard, not the warrior wearing the chainmail thank you very much.

    Hi, I'm Machado, 34, computer programmer since 12, playing D3 for about 6~7 months.

    1 little kid, married for 10 years, I had several dogs so far, and no cats.

    Currently working for a big financial institute as a full-time software developer / team leader (we're a small dev team).

    Pretty boring, when summarized like this.

    Oh, I dive and play videogames too. And I can skate a little. And my little one loves to bike with me, on Saturdays (when both of us have the time to do it).

    Hello people, my name's Jeremy.

    I'm a 25 years old arts student, living in the province of Quebec. First language is french, but I do speak english too. I never played Diablo1, but I did play the s*** out of Diablo2.

    I'm married to a wonderful woman and we live happily with our 2 rats, and a cat since just about an hour.
    I don't work at the moment but I have my art production going on, soon I should have enough material for an exhibition.

    I have played mostly DH, but I'm really loving the wiz, and he's now my main.

    You'd be surprised when you bring the subject up in conversations often enough with different groups of people. I used to talk about it during icebreaker events, and there's almost always one person who says, "that's the sport with the bamboo stick, right?" in reference to fencing, or "it's that sport where you jab people with fake metal swords, right?" in reference to kendo. Then there are some others who think of fencing as swashbuckling (not true).
