    Hello everyone,

    I'm Maith, and I'm pleased to be joining the forum. I'm just starting to get my bearings here, and I thought I'd just introduce myself before I set off and get myself lost.

    I'm 21. I work the night shift as a security guard in Baton Rouge, LA, which gives me a lot of time to sit here and twiddle my thumbs. I'm about to set off into college, trying for a masters in english, and hope to teach it at LSU within the next ten years.

    I love to read. One of my favorite authors, running neck and neck with J.K. Rowling, is John Marco. I do a bit of writing, and his work has pulled me into the addicting world of realistic fiction. Among my favorite books are "The Jackal of Nar" , "The Grand Design", and "Dune"

    Books I openly express loathing for: "The DragonLance Chronicles" . If ever there were a D&D game put on paper, it's DragonLance. I forced myself to read the chronicles, just to see if it was possible to do it without grinding my teeth down to the stumps, and now I can hardly chew meat. Weis and Hickman should be ashamed, for they are no friend to the written word.

    General hobbies: I teach Aikido at the Martial Way in Port Allen, and study from Sensei Troy Maranto of the POPD. A greater teacher, there never was. Before that, I took Tae-kwon-do from various crackpots for fourteen years. Since those days, I've had to learn to empty my glass.

    I do a bit of bladesmithing on the side of all this. I've made a few katanas and some custom swords, so if anyone needs some help with it, I'm glad to offer any knowledge I have.

    Music I like: Infected Mushroom

    There's not much else I can say that wouldn't bore you all to tears, so I'll leave it at that. I'm off to find a guild. As will always be the case, if anyone needs to contact me, feel free to drop a line.

    ~Maith
