Having been a forum member for well over a year now, I suppose its about time I got around to introducing myself. I'm a long-term fan of 40k, and fearlessly jumped on board the hype train for EC as soon as news of it sprung from the ashes of the old Dark Millenium MMO. I've been a fairly regular poster on the forums ever since they opened, and you'll often find me gently teasing the loyalists and making the odd joke at Rogal Dorn's expense. Games Workshop and the various incarnations of the Warhammer world have been part of my life from the beginning - perhaps unsurprising, given that the first Warhammer Fantasy Battle codex was published in the same week that I was born. I grew up with the Fighting Fantasy series, dived headlong into the Warhammer world slightly later and extended that to 40k soon afterwards. Like many kids entering the series, I took an immediate liking to the awesomeness of the Space Marines, and my first 40k army was a devotedly loyal, crusading Ultramarines spin-off chapter. Blood Bowl and Battlefleet Gothic also featured in the mix. As time passed, outside of the tabletop game I started making the transition from player to gamesmaster in WFRP, the sadly now deceased RP rules for the Warhammer world. This rather naturally brought me into contact with the darker side of the Warhammer world, as fielding obvious antagonists such as the Orks and Dark Elves was backed up by more insidious trickery from the Skaven and Chaos, or just plain and simple manipulative, misguided or malevolent members of the Empire. Having embraced Chaos (figuratively speaking) as a storytelling force in Warhammer, it was inevitable the same would happen in 40k. Something I swiftly loved about the 40k Chaos is how its intrinsically tied to the stories of the loyalist Space Marines, particularly that there are such deeply personal reasons for the former brothers to hate each other. Now that I wasn't labelling Chaos in a box marked "misguided enemies" and was really exploring their lore in depth, I discovered just how much more potential (and just plain fun) they have from a storytelling perspective than their loyalist counterparts. My MMO past has been somewhat varied, but notables include Warhammer Online, Rift, GW2, PS2, SWTOR and WoT. I was (back in the day) part of a fairly good UT guild, so although my shooter skills are somewhat rusty, I'm hoping to be able to hold my own in EC. Which broadly leads us to here, where I'm part of a Chaos RP guild called the Forgotten Sons that will be hitting Arkhona with a vengeance come launch day. As a slightly random aside, I'm also the twisted mind behind the Army of Gnoblars, an amateur parody band that started life taking the pi making light-hearted fun out of Warhammer Online, but went on to make tongue-in-cheek songs about various games and the people who play them. The most infamous song was a scathing put-down of Dragon Age 2, which became the top-rated comment on PC Gamer's infamous gushing 94% review of a game which had bitterly divided the Dragon Age fanbase...at least, it was until PC Gamer changed websites and deleted all the past comments. Hmm. We produced a song about Eternal Crusade, which ended up going round the Behaviour studio and causing a few laughs. If you missed it at the time, and are interested in hearing it, you can find it here: Endless War That's about it from me. I look forward to seeing you on the forums, and on the killing fields of Arkhona. Death to the False Emperor! Arkdawn - no need for an info greet on this one.
