I'm 33 year old who started gaming on an NES at my cousins hows before my parents eventually got one for me and my brothers. From there I upgraded through the various Nintendo systems until the N64. After that I started getting into PC gaming.

My first MMO experience was Shadowbane I spent a lot of time in Shadowbane and loved the open world PVP because you always had to be on the lookout and could get into some exciting fights I also loved the large city sieges, but eventually I transitioned to Starwars Galaxies with my friend. I loved the complete sandbox nature of SWG being able to be a Teras Kasi/Bounty Hunter and not being stuck as playing one class but being able to specialize my skills so that I was the most effective I could be at doing what I wanted to do which was hunting Jedi. I also loved that all of the equipment that was useful in the game was player made because it forced people to work together to do a lot of stuff in the game. There were flaws for sure such as the jedi grid and it being better to join a group and then do missions solo but over all I think it was the best experience I had in an MMO. And then the "Combat Update" happened and took out most of the customization. After that I moved on and tried WoW and SWTOR but I never got the same experience that I had with the open world PVP of Shadowbane or the true Sandbox nature of SWG.

That brings my to why when I saw Crowfall I got excited because from what I have read and seen It is a combination of the best features of Shadowbane and SWG. That being said I just picked it up this week and I haven't really had a chance to play much in game yet. So I am looking forward to hooking up with you guys and starting to learn the ins and outs of Crowfall.

Other Stuff:
I'm from Texas and have lived here all of my life. In addition to gaming I love to spend time outdoors hunting and shooting I also participate in Cowboy Action Shooting matches and do my own reloading.

I stumbled across Critical Role back when it was just first staring and loved to characters and story telling so much that I got hooked and have watched every episode so far. After mentioning the show to a friend he told me that he was thinking about starting up a DnD campaign and asked if I wanted to join in. I did and I loved our first few sessions however, due to changing circumstances the first campaign fell apart after only 3 or 4 sessions but as of December we started up a new campaign and I am excited to experience my first full DnD adventure.

Also, I died once, but if you want to hear about that you will have to catch me in game or on Discord 😉.

We have our very own Agent Coulson in the guild! Haha

As a DM for my D&D group, I can confirm that there are times when I write up a story/campaign/adventure and after the first couple of sessions, I might just cut the cord and start something new. Its all based on how I feel the players get attached to the story and their characters. And if I like the development of it. Not to say that's how it happens all the time. But I've been there. Haha

And always awesome to have another Critical Role fan!
