    Do you have a favorite author? If so, whom?

    What was the last work of fiction you read?

    What is your favorite thing about the Playground?

    If you could change one thing about OotS, what would it be?

    What was the Forum like when you joined?

    mangosta:
    Do you, in fact, have any cheese here at all?

    I never claimed to have any cheese. Whoever you heard that from is spreading slander.

    Will you go quietly when they come for you?

    I will.

    What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

    Death.

    Are you running to something, or from something?

    Presenting the two as a dichotomy will not lead to accurate answers.

    What's the magic word?

    Glitter.

    It's okay! I've probably forgotten half the people who were there by now.

    In other words, Are you coming to GenCon next year?

    I'm really not sure. While it was a lot of fun, I'm not sure if I'll be able to afford it.

    Heliomance:
    Are there any souvenirs that you desire profusely enough that you'd consider going on holiday with the primary purpose of obtaining them?

    None that I can think of. The only souvenirs I really collect are earrings (sorry wxdruid, I forgot that on my initial list), and they're not worth enough to go on holiday with the express purpose of acquiring them.

    Are you capable of penetrating the overly verbose mire of my elaborate verbiage?

    I seem to be doing okay so far, hit me harder!

    Ashtix:
    Do you have a favorite author? If so, whom?

    I can't pick one. However, authors that I very much enjoy include
    • Laurie Halse Anderson
    • Isaac Asimov
    • Jane Austen
    • Suzanne Collins
    • Neil Gaiman
    • Jostein Gaarder
    • John Green
    • Diana Wynne Jones
    • Laurie R. King
    • Madeline L'Engle
    • David Levithan
    • Lois Lowry
    • Robin McKinley
    • China Mieville
    • Chris Moore
    • J. K. Rowling
    • Terry Pratchett
    • Jonathan Stroud
    • Scott Westerfeld


    What was the last work of fiction you read?

    Un Lun Dun by China Mieville

    What is your favorite thing about the Playground?

    I honestly can't say, I'm in a bit of a "do I post enough to even consider myself a member" crisis right now.

    If you could change one thing about OotS, what would it be?

    I'd make it less visually chaotic, it made it really hard to read back when I did.

    What was the Forum like when you joined?

    About half the size, and there were mostly different people about? Also, shipping was still a thing. I was fourteen, completely na´ve, and not at all privy to the drama going on. I can't tell if the fora have changed significantly, or if I'm just much more jaded now.

    I literally thought everyone here was nice, or that I could get along with most of you fairly easily. And increasingly, that's not the case. I feel like I have to compromise my beliefs or passion or identity nearly every time I set foot in a thread. For me at least, GitP is a much more hostile place than it was, but I have the suspicion that I'm the one who's changed more significantly.

    How many of the seven continents have you been to?

    What's your favorite relaxation destination, away from home/couch/bed? (whether it's a coffee joint, gaming store, mosh pit, whatever)

    Given the opportunity to go back in time momentarily with the ability to prevent any one invention/creation from ever coming to be (and assured that it will never be invented afterwards), what would you remove?

    The "seven continents" are socially constructed and here is my favourite video about it! Rawr!

    But I have been to North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa.

    What's your favorite relaxation destination, away from home/couch/bed? (whether it's a coffee joint, gaming store, mosh pit, whatever)

    I can't relax in most places outside of my own home. So...none?

    Given the opportunity to go back in time momentarily with the ability to prevent any one invention/creation from ever coming to be (and assured that it will never be invented afterwards), what would you remove?

    I don't know. Because I can't see accurately the impact that my changes would have, tampering with anything would be incredibly unsafe.

    I do not know, I'm sorry.

    What question would you like to be asked?

    Depends. Who's doing the asking?

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?

    Well, my mount is a gryphon, but he's more a business partner than a pet. For pets, small, fuzzy, and capable of killing varmints. Cat or dog, I love both.

    What is the square root of Pi?

    ~1.77245385

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?

    A tough question. Off the cuff if I had to pick one (rather than a sequence) I'd go with 542.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?

    Another tough one, for different reasons. I stopped following Erfworld when it moved off this site, and haven't looked at the archives here in so long that it actually un-highlighted the link in my browser.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?

    I of course do not actually have holy powers and ride a gryphon around. I do, however, have a strong sense of right and wrong, and don't compromise on it very often. I'm also actually lawful good, not lawful nice. Which doesn't mean I can't or won't be nice to people, but I know when to put my foot down.

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?

    You ask a paladin this question? I save one, my mount saves the other, and we smite the hell out of whoever set it up. NEXT!

    What is your favorite word?

    Smite. Obviously. Smite, smite, smite.

    What is your least favorite word?

    One I can't type on this board.

    What makes you enthusiastic?

    Many things. I am, after all, a geek. I have special enthusiasm for baking, the study of history, and mastering games, though.

    What disappoints you?

    Injustice, tyranny, the darker side of human nature. Also collapsed ciabatta; nothing gets a day down like flattened Italian bread that took sixteen hours to make before the failure.

    What sound do you love?

    Well, my absolute favorite is a bit off-color. Well-played classical music is a close second, though.

    What sound do you hate?

    The screech of metal on metal, which is much like nails on a chalkboard but considerably louder. Also the sound of a press breaking down at work, because it means extra work accompanied by the smell of burning plastic.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

    I've considered having a go at elected public service, but I don't think I can lie enough to make it.

    What profession would you not like to participate in?

    Garbage collection.

    Who are the other members of the party in your sig?

    Well, my avatar is Gaheris Trollbane, one of my favorite roleplaying characters and the one that inspired my handle. In the sig are his rotating cast of cohorts, actually. From left to right, pictured are Erek Fletcher, paladin/bard; Quinlan Lyall, paladin/monk; Bearach Weir, paladin/ranger; Gror Hammerbammer, paladin (who also rides a gryphon, more badass than my own due to not multiclassing); and Ciaran Roche, paladin/rogue. Not pictured: Amargein Ross, paladin/sorcerer; and Uscias Mallaghan, a skilled diviner and unseen seer.

    Can't really say I have, no.

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    My skill at baking.

    3. Roses or orchids?

    Roses.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

    Food? Figuratively speaking, I love and am loved, and knowing that is enough.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?

    Years and years of practice.

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

    I was in high school ten years ago. That's a lot of things, but overall I wish I'd known to take a year off and work before going to college so I wouldn't run out of money.

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

    A very tough call. I'd have to say my girlfriend.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

    Abraham Lincoln.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

    I strive to be a good man. Whatever I achieve in pursuit of that goal will suffice.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)



    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

    The power of the physical limitations of the reptilian body to scale up.

    12. Beards or babies?

    This is a dichotomous choice? Of the two, I'd say babies.

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

    I haven't that I recall.

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

    I have no idea. I presume you made it up?

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

    Hello my baby, hello my honey, hello my right time gal...

    16. Favorite mythological monster?

    I'm very partial to gryphons, though European dragons are a very close second.

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

    You are? I hadn't noticed. You realize that, despite my real life lack of paladin powers, I'm not exactly non-dangerous, right? The street outside will do fine, I guess.

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

    It's a distinct possibility. I don't care to predict whether or not I can beat a person in combat; I just know that I know enough in the way of martial arts to be hazardous to most people. Probably with a sword.

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

    Either.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

    I was bored.

    Yes, actually. Cheddar, provolone, Romano, parmesan, American (not my fault!), and mozzarella are all presently in my refrigerator.

    Will you go quietly when they come for you?

    Not if my armory has anything to say about it.

    What is your anti-zombie weapon of choice?

    Of what I have on hand, probably one of the shotguns. The bolt action, not the single shot.

    Are you running to something, or from something?

    Who said I was running?

    What's the magic word?

    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious?
    Quote Originally Posted by wxdruid View Post

    Black and forest green.

    What do you like to collect?

    I have a fairly extensive coin collection. I also collect site tokens from SCA events I go to.

    How many avatars do you have?

    Variable. Avatars for here, avatars I've used here, avatars I've used anywhere on the Internet, or avatars currently in use? (The answers, respectively, are ten, two, twenty-six, and six.)

    Are you coming to GenCon in 2012?

    Planning on it.

    What type of chocolate do you prefer?

    About 70% dark. Much darker than that and it tends to be too bitter.

    What type and how many pets do you have?

    Presently none, sadly.

    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?

    No. http://weather.gov fulfills all my weather needs without pesky advertising.

    Not to be cliche, but I have to say Tolkien. Not for Lord of the Rings, either; while I like the book, I much prefer some of his lesser-known stories and the Hobbit.

    What was the last work of fiction you read?

    The Hound of the Baskervilles.

    If you were a tree, what kind of car would you want to be hit by?

    I wouldn't. If I must be hit by a car, though, I'd rather it be one of those tiny smart cars so as to sustain less damage.

    What was the forum like when you joined?

    Much the same, really. People come and go, but the board culture, unlike some others I've been a part of for a long time, is amazingly static.

    What is your favorite thing about the Playground?

    I mainly hang around these days to discuss 40k. It's nice to be able to just go shoot the breeze somewhere, though; something my other boards tend to not do very well.

    What kind of cookie?

    Chocolate chip.

    If you could change one thing about OotS, what would it be?

    More O-chul!

    Have you ever played Necromunda?

    I'm sorry to say I haven't.

    Thank you Renegade Paladin, for your time and for answering those rhetorical questions from a guy who gives answers usually. Most people just give him funny stares.

    Ooh, this is where it gets scary...

    Reinholdt's Riveting and Rhetorical Questions:
    What question would you like to be asked?
    "Will you marry me?" by a beautiful, intelligent millionairess with low standards would be a nice start.

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
    If I ever had a pet, the only trait that it could have would be the ability to look after itself most of the time, considering I'm out of the house for around 11 hours a day except weekends.

    What is the square root of Pi?
    1.7724538509055160272981674833411...

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?
    Difficult one. Probably the one where Durkon calls the lightning in Cliffport.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
    The second one, where Manpower dies smelling key lime pie.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
    It's me, as far as I know...I try not to act differently here than I would if I was talking to you face to face. The British ITP members I met at the Peterborough meetup earlier in the year would be able to tell you if I succeed or not!

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
    Depends...is there a reward involved?

    What is your favorite word?
    Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

    What is your least favorite word?
    It's a highly crude slang word for a certain portion of the female anatomy. I fear I cannot go into more detail or children may be shocked!

    What makes you enthusiastic?
    Reading a good book.

    What disappoints you?
    Reading a bad book.

    What sound do you love?
    The ticking of a clock in a quiet room.

    What sound do you hate?
    Loud music.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
    Something aboard a ship, maybe...the seafaring life has always appealed to me. Even though, were I to try it, I'd probably be suffering terrible seasickness within minutes of leaving port!

    What profession would you not like to participate in?
    Cleaning out the sewers.

    wxdruid:
    What color(s) do you prefer to wear?
    More muted colours, like greens, blues, blacks, and greys. However, since my primary motivator when shopping for clothes is to get the cheapest I can, I usually end up just getting whatever's left on the pegs by everyone else during the sales.

    What do you like to collect?
    I've never been much of a collector. Did a little bit of stamp collecting when I was about 10, but that's only because my older brother did it and I wanted to be like him.

    How many avatars do you have?
    Well, as you can see, I just use one of the standard site avatars here! The only avatar I have you could call my own is the one I use on the Egosoft forums, which is just a really old picture of me.

    Are you ever coming to GenCon?
    Unless I come into a lot of money anytime soon, probably not!

    What type of chocolate do you prefer?
    Bitter dark chocolate--70% cocoa solids sort of stuff. Can't stand Cadburys Bournville, which (IMHO) tastes more of sugar than chocolate.

    What type and how many pets do you have?
    None. (See my answer to the pet question above).

    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?
    I don't think I got that channel even when I had Sky, and I certainly don't have it since I downgraded to Freesat. Generally, if I want to check the weather out, I'll go straight to the Met Office website...get it from the original source!

    1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
    No, not really. I occasionally fancy a fictional character in a movie, but that's usually because I fancy the actress playing them rather than the character!

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
    My brain.

    3. Roses or orchids?
    Ewwwww, flowers...although rose-flavoured confectionary is OK, so I suppose it'd have to be those.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
    Oxygen and food, mainly.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?
    *looks over shoulder to see who gw is talking to*

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
    Working at my old company, and I wish I'd known they were going to make me redundant in 2007 so I could have prepared better for it!

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
    Difficult to say...I don't know anyone who I could literally spend the rest of my life with without them getting annoying at *some* point! I've always been a bit of a loner. In any case, with only the two of us the infrastructure would go to hell in a handbasket quite quickly, so I'd probably just ensure I wasn't around for very long, if you get my meaning.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
    Alan Turing, to find out if he really did anticipate the way computers have gone today.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
    As someone who brought no harm upon others.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
    Not a lolcat fan, sorry!

    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
    The power to teleport him somewhere else.

    12. Beards or babies?
    I have to choose? Er...babies.

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
    Never made up any words, although I tend to make up place names a lot. I wish I could stand on the Talanac Mountains staring out over the plains some day...

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
    It's a flower that grows on the aforementioned mountains.

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
    Three rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine for mortal Men, doomed to die,
    One for the dark lord on his dark throne
    In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.
    One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
    One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

    16. Favorite mythological monster?
    Griffin, mainly because it's so rarely used these days!

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
    On the surface of the Moon.

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
    I remembered to bring a space suit!

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
    Either's good.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
    Guess it was to let people find out more about me, given how long I've been on the forums. Of course, if the young beautiful millionairess who I mentioned in my answers to Reinholdt happens to read them and decide I'm the one for her, so much the better.

    Asthix:

    So many to choose from...probably Tolkien, though, because I still think LOTR is an amazing book.

    What was the last work of fiction you read?
    I re-read the Chronicles of Amber, by Roger Zelazny. Amazing series.

    If you were a tree, what kind of car would you want to be hit by?
    Something small and light that wouldn't cause me too much damage!

    What was the forum like when you joined?
    Not noticed it's that much different--some different people around, of course.

    What is your favorite thing about the Playground?
    Relatively little flaming and trolling...this and the Egosoft forums are the best places for that I've found on the Web, IMHO.

    What kind of cookie?
    Assuming they count, Jaffa Cakes. If they don't (because they're technically a cake not a biscuit), then Fig Rolls.

    If you could change one thing about OotS, what would it be?
    Get rid of Belkar...but that'll happen naturally before too long.

    Have you ever played Necromunda?
    Nope.

    Good morning good morning!

    I'll try to answer as many as I can before I jaunt off for my Sunday D&D 3.5 game. I'll get to the rest when I return! In the meantime, ask anything...I really don't mind.

    Reinholdt
    What question would you like to be asked?
    Anything really...but I won't reveal credit card information, so don't ask!

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
    My girlfriend just answered "cat". As for me, I like pretty much anything...and have had many different types of pets...so long as it doesn't try to make me its lunch.

    What is the square root of Pi?
    Apple turnover, Remainder 3. Girlfriend just answered "blueberry streudel". (Little did you know you'd get two interviews for the price of one.)

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?
    On a purely comedic scale, probably the weapon shop strip that is an homage to the Cheese Shop sketch by Monty Python.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
    Don't read it.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
    Pretty much one to one. I AM the Squirrel King! Behold my nutty minions! Fear my squirrelly wrath! (I might read a little bit too much Neurotically Yours, featuring "Foamy the Squirrel") Seriously, I don't act any different on here as I do in real life.

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
    I cast Miracle, take the 5000xp hit, and save them all. (Girlfriend says "that's cheating")

    What is your favorite word?
    Sooo many choices. I'm a bit of a verbivore. Umm....floccinaucinihilipilification comes to the fore as a good one!

    What is your least favorite word?
    Monday.

    What makes you enthusiastic?
    Being back together with my girlfriend after having been separated by two oceans for 12 years!

    What disappoints you?
    My cousin...long story short, she's passing her daughter off on my aunt to go out and have fun consistently instead of taking responsibility. Sorry, but if you're going to have a kid, be prepared to grow up while they do.

    What sound do you love?
    Laughter of the most pure, "oh god my sides hurt" sort, first and foremost. The clatter of dice on the table (catering to my inner geek). The sound of passing trains is also very calming to me (grew up near train tracks).

    What sound do you hate?
    Greyhound buses. Incessant, repetitive noises.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
    I used to think I'd like to be a computer forensic examiner...but now that I've had a taste of that, I'm not sure that's what I want to do. Umm...professional game content writer or brick and mortar game shop owner (girlfriend agrees...no you may not have my girlfriend )?

    What profession would you not like to participate in?
    Anything retail. Never. Again.

    I'll answer the rest after I'm finished killing the PCs....(as I get whacked in the ear). OK OK, fine...after I secretly help the PCs but put on airs as if I *want* to kill them. (Perhaps having the gf sit here as I type this who's also in the game was a bad idea.)

    1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
    Not really.
    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
    Personally: getting my computer forensics degree. Professionally: my job.
    3. Roses or orchids?
    Orchids, please.
    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
    Sleep helps. As does food. Beyond that, my driving desire to never, ever give up.
    5. How did you get to be so awesome?
    Eating my Wheaties! And amazing support from parents, friends, and family.
    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
    Ten years ago I was 25 and had recently moved to North Carolina. I wish I had finished college instead of being tricked by my then-employer.
    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
    My star. (aforesaid girlfriend)
    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
    Provided there was a translator available, I'd love to ask Leonardo DaVinci some questions.
    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
    I'd love to have a crowded remembrance ceremony filled with people not crying, but rather laughing and sharing memories of me and how I impacted their lives for the positive.

    I like the Shoryuken cat... (harkens back to my SFII arcade days...Wayyyyy too many quarters spent!)
    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
    The power to move to a different city! (Sorry...as much as I love my squirrelly minions, they're no match for the Gojira)
    12. Beards or babies?
    To have on your face? Beards. Definitely. In general? Babies.
    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
    I've made up plenty...but I'll be ****ed if I can't remember any right now. lol
    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
    Let's break this apart, shall we?
    whilo: from the Old English "hwila" indicating a conditional measurement of time
    plen: from the Latin "plenitas", meaning fullness
    So it can be conjectured that whiloplenulent is the condition where someone has just realized they hurried and are now waiting. That is to say, they're full of available time, but unexpectedly.
    Usage: "Sandy raced to make her doctor's appointment such that she got a speeding ticket on the way. Upon arrival, she was angrily whiloplenulent when the receptionist said her appointment had been pushed back a half hour."
    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
    "Gaudete, Gaudete, Christus est natus ex Maria virgine! Gaudete!" A song sung by the Mediaeval Baebes, whom I saw at the Renaissance Faire.
    16. Favorite mythological monster?
    Dragon! Cliche, I know...but a certain dragon is the whole reason I met the love of my life.
    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
    You'll never fight me. You'd have to wade your way through my squirrelly hordes! And since you chose to fight me, the battle would occur in a park somewhere.
    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
    I didn't. Squirrel #714 did. (I'll have to give him a promotion)
    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
    I'm OK with either type! Bring 'em on!
    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
    Because I really want to get to know folks around here, and vice versa.


    From wxdruid

    What color(s) do you prefer to wear?
    All colors. I have pink shirts, red shirts, blue shirts, lavender, salmon, white, black, etc. I'm a bit of a clothes-whore.
    What do you like to collect?
    I collect government/military coins (partially because of my profession). Gaming miniatures (D&D, Reaper minis, GW, etc.). Assorted technology and gadgets.
    How many avatars do you have?
    None, aside from this one. Not for lack of trying though...I've put in a couple requests in the appropriate forum thread, but nobody accepted, so I stopped trying.
    Are you ever coming to GenCon?
    One of these years. I keep intending to...
    What type of chocolate do you prefer?
    Dark chocolate rules all.
    What type and how many pets do you have?
    None currently...my lease does not permit pets. If I was allowed, I'd have a cat (breed inconsequential), a dog (malamute or akita, perhaps), and a parrot
    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?
    Not really, unless there's a significant weather event occurring, such as an imminent hurricane or similar.


    Keep 'em coming folks!
