Im supposed to be a signals intelligence linguist but I'm about 95% sure I'll be getting deployed with a special forces support group for ground-level translating once I get out of training.

Okay ! lol

I'm Neffy, its actually a shortened version of a name I used to use, Neferteri (Egyptian name *wink* Kemwer)

My real name's Chelsie, and I'm from Perth, Australia. I do go surfing once a week, and no, I do not keep kangaroos/koalas, I do not use boomerangs,and I don't play cricket. And yes I do have that weird Australian accent that people seem to like, for no apparent reason. I'm also one of the weird girls i guess, that does not use makeup at all, I really do not like that stuff, lol.

I'm 20 and I used to be a cook in a Italian cuisine restaurant somewhere in downtown Sydney, then my parents wanted to relocate because of blah blah blah, and so we moved to Perth, and now I'm working as a waitress in Japanese restaurant, its pretty cool. I love cooking, and i still do cook sometimes at home, so it's great.

Hey guys, im Chris, im 21 from SE England (bout 70 miles south of London) living in the terrible town of Margate.

I have been playing games since i was about 5, playing Doom on windows 95 xD My 1st taste of MMOs was Lineage 2 which i played for around a year. however the leveling grind was far too brutal for me and i eventually moved onto WoW at the release of TBC. I quit that when i moved off to university to study Philosophy, but eventually my addiction grabbed me and i ended up picking up Aion during CB3... got into what i'd consider the best guild in the world - Be Happy. Ended up quitting that too though after we dominated the opposing faction (asmo) so hard that they either moved sever or stopped playing entirely.

Real life wise, i work as a Project Manager for Channel Chambers of Commerce, basically bringing businesses together and giving them ways to trade between each other, however i am soon to be a floor designer :p In My spare time i'm either In Game, or out at the Casino (really love Blackjack and Poker).

My IGN is always Slyx (although i changed it to Dash in Aion).... I shall be playing a Support/Melee Cleric and Dual Boxing a Champion to level with. If all goes well, we shall all do well together :d

Here we go....Sup guys my name's Rob, I'm 29 years old and I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. My hobbies include fishing, watching movies or just sitting out on the porch enjoying the weather (in the summer) Gaming wise iI've played just about every major mmo in the last 6 or so years. First mmo i enjoyed was a free2play named Knights Online. I soon moved onto WOW and played various mmo's over the years. I also play FPS and RTS when i'm feeling bored or burnt out on mmo's.

I hope to get along with all of you and I'll see you guys in game or on vent. :p

Thought I'd take a moment to say that I really do like the diversity of the people in the guild. Perhaps it's just the dorky Spanish Major inside of me, but I like to see the different cultures, and when you guys share photos of where you are, it really helps me see a little about where you come from. Part of working together well within the guild, it's knowing about everybody and how they may interpret and react to certain stimuli.

Anyways - Keep going! I'm really enjoying finding out a little about everybody!

Ok my turn.

My name is Gary, I live in the south of the UK...a place called Farnborough. The town is pretty damn uninteresting, and try as I might, I can't for the life of me find anything truly historical about the place (well...apart from I live here :roll: ).

Although nothing very historical happened here (ok, ok, it was the birthplace of British Aviation), there are a few interesting elements to the town. These are


  • In the James Bond film "Quantum of Solace" the airport scenes which were shown as "Ocean Sky Airport" was in fact Farnborough Airport . All the sign names and even cars plates were changed during filming over 3 days.
  • Farnborough has the oldest pre 1918 Airship hanger in the UK. This is a center piece to one of the business parks which are situated along side the Airport strip.
  • Top Gear recently recently filmed themselves racing around the above mentioned Business Park where the Airship Hanger is located....and I missed them grrrrrr :mad:
  • The latest Rowan Atkinson film (aka Mr Bean...it's an English thing lol) "Johnny English" was actually filmed in the woods at the back of my house

That, my friends is about exciting as it gets here.

About Me: Well I am 42, and been playing MMO's for almost as long as I can remember. Although nowadays, as I am an old fart, that means approximately yesterday.... mawahahahah :lol: (if I am lucky).

Gaming History: First ever MMO was Everquest, followed by DAOC, GUILD WARS,WOW, AOC,WAR,ATLANTICA,AION and soon to be RIFT. These are the main MMO's, between these I have played gazillions of betas and other MMO's and was also, at one point, a very hardcore FPS player (first person shooter).
When playing, you will be hearing me on Vent, more than likely twisting the most innocent of comments into something 2 sided and more than likely quite rude ;-)

I am Married and have 2 lovely girls aged 6 and 4, Been with the other half for around 20 years now and still going strong.

My passions in life are

  1. My Wife and Children
  2. Singing
  3. Carp Fishing
  4. MMO's
  5. Top Gear :d
  6. Web Graphics and design
  7. Living life to the full EVERY day... and having a laugh at almost anything and everything...you never know whats round the corner :confused:

Work: Well I work for a medical technology company, making and developing devices for the treatment of liver and brain cancer. I work in the labs developing this stuff (DC BEAD) and also run these areas. Concentrating mainly on the purchasing,validation,servicing and general upkeep of all the areas.
We also own a company in Germany (Brachy Sciences) who were the first people IN THE WORLD to develope a medical device for stroke patients using stem cell technology.
My company is a great place to work for, and it is especially good to know that what we do helps alleviate some of the pain that people suffering with cancer, have to go through.
I have watched some of my family pass away from this, so it's especially poignant and close to my heart.

Whats next?: Well, the only thing left for me to do in my life now, is to join a decent band and get gigging down the local pubs...I do it all for free, just because singing is what I love to do the most :d . Oh and almost forgot...running along side my new guild "Bloodpact" the most awesome and organised (if not a little crazy and full of strange people :dizzy: ...not including myself of course) guild in the universe.

Before I finally shut up and let you all go about your normal routines (did I say normal), I will leave you with a few disturbing pictures of me to whet your appetite :lol:

Take care all
