    Hi all! My turn to post one of these - though it's mostly started an edited copy of the one I posted on the old forum...

    First, a bit about me: I just turned 40 in the summer, so I'm one of the oldest dudes on the server... I live in eastern Canada, though I've seen some of Europe, England and Scotland. I work as a java developer, working on web applications. I got married last year, and luckily my wife gives me plenty of time for gaming :)

    I've played video games since my Atari 2600 in the 80s... from there on to my brother's TRS-80 computer, then to our Commodore-128, though we used it mostly as a 64. I knew several friends with commodore's as well, so 'aquired' a TON of games for it... Lots of fun there, many hours spent at some pretty cool old games - the birth of RPG games like "Bards Tale" and "Pool of Radiance". Then got my first PC at university, a 386 DX, and upgraded PCs from there... I've played a lot of shooters, like the original DOOM, Quake, Quake2, Half-life and such great mods like Team Fortress and later, Counter-strike. I've played a lot of the first-person shooters, lots of RPG style games like Oblivion, Morrowind, Dragon's Age... drawing a blank on any other titles, but I've played all the 'big' ones. Let's see... online games like Everquest, WoW, City of Heroes, Dungeon Siege, Diablo, Diablo 2, Guild Wars. I acutally played on a MUD or two, the ORIGINAL MMORPGs - text based! Then there's RTSs like all the Warcraft games, the age of empires games, Starcraft and Starcraft 2. More recently Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2... I also have a PS3 though I'm not a big console gamer, and have played Batman: Arkham Asylum, Red Dead Redemption, Little Big Planet, UFC 2009, and a few others.

    Then of course, there's Minecraft - I got it last fall and put in a LOT of time with it, what a great game! I used to play with Lego blocks as a kid, so I think the creative/building aspect appeals to me... When I started on Pawncraft in the spring of 2011 I mostly built on my own in the wilderness and with my friend Psiclone71 (another 'old' dude from work). I haven't really been interested in PvP; never really done much of it.

    Here's a short video of what I created on the previous Pawncraft world (though I've seen much nicer stuff built on the server :D


    Anyway, give me a shout in-game, and let me know if you need help with anything, I'm always willing to help! Have fun on Pawncraft!

    I remember your creation so well!

    First day I got moderator I was flying around looking at everything everyone had made and came across your castle. I spent a good while looking around and taking screenshots.

    Watching that video gave me a really potent pang of nostalgia - thanks man.

    Cool! Glad I made it, good to 'save' those old creations somewhere!
