Hello all. New here. Names Alex, but you can refer to me by my profile name if you wish. I've been a huge fantasy fan since oh i don't know, i could talk pretty much. it started with my brother who showed me his (now old school) 2nd edition DnD books. I've been hooked on the sci/fi fantasy genre ever since. you name it i've read it. I love Lord Of the Rings, it's pretty much the great grand daddy of everything else in high fantasy writting, and nothing else compares. But i'm a fan of C.S. Lewis as well. I also have a bit of a sci/fi streak though, i'm a fan of worlds where sword, spell, and machine are all mixed together, like Final Fantasy. other favorite works include; Willow, Time Bandits, Tron, Star Wars, Dark Is Rising sequence, Magic by the Lake, Half Magic, Wheel Of Time, any and all Shakespear, greek theatre, Warcraft 3, there are so many other great works though, so i'll stop there. i used to role play a lot, just about everything. DnD (2nd & 3rd edition), shadowrun, white wolf (old school WOD, not the new shit), Exalted (LOVE exalted), and random games adapted to the D20 system. I'm a university student for now, with a major in Theatre studies. I'm training to be an actor. I particularly enjoy the Greek and Medieval theatres, and Shakespear. but i enjoy more contemporary works as well. I also write, but i don't have anything nearly finished enough to post here. maybe if i finish something and i think it's decent enough to show i'll do so, but for now. i'm up for disscusion and chillin. So.... HELLO!
