We already have a thread like this, I know, but seeing as the users of this specific section cannot read it, and therefore probably wont read it, I've made this thread for you guys. I doubt any of us Danish people will be making any long presentations, seeing as, well, as said before, we've already done that. But if any of you not Danish people wish to let us in on, who you are, how you found us, what your interests are and so forth, please, this is the place :)

Ociros

  • Gæst
Well hello there ladies & gents, introduced myself previously, but this is the more official place to do it, it seems!

Well, the basics first, shall we?

My name’s Jack, I’m 19, I’m male, I'm English, I uh, I’m uh, I guess not that interesting as I’ve already ran out of things to say!

Erm, I’m not really tall, and I’ve got a gut, but I’m working on that as soon as I learn to drive and get a new PC! Oh yeah, PC, that thing, well, I invest –a lot- of time in that thing, and I just can’t decide if it was the worst, or best thing that ever happened to me. I tend to type as I talk… I currently have a collection of weapons from various games and settings, which is quite small currently (4 Final Fantasy Swords, 3 Non-Specific Blades, 1 Recurve Bow, and 2 Lightsabers) but prized. :)

I’m mostly a gamer; mainly Swords & Sorcery but sometimes I take the dip into Sci-Fi such as EVE Online and the up-and-coming Tabula Rasa. I’m highly anticipating (along with Miss Mara Jade) the up-and-coming Neverwinter Nights 2 due to previously spending a vast amount of time playing the original Neverwinter Nights, to which I made some great friends and memories.

‘Ociros’ is my ‘tag’, which was the name of my first ever online character, and I usually use it for my first male character on many games, although I try not to use the same name twice on any game. Ociros is pronounced ‘Oh-See-Ross’, and in a way sounds a little like Osiris, the Egyptian God of Life, Death and Fertility, but this is purely co-incidence, as I didn’t even know of Osiris’ ‘existence’ when I was 14 and started my first Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game, Dark Age of Camelot.

Uh, I came to this forum a while ago after getting talking with Mara, who I met on aforementioned Neverwinter Nights. For some reason she felt strangely familiar, and I’d like to think we get on very well, although saying that, we don’t talk as much as we used to(!), which I suppose is something that seriously needs to be remedied. ;)

A couple of Skywalker.dk’ers might have already met me, I went to London for the Comic Con’ with a friend of mine, and we shared a room with Obi & Pingu (I think it was you Pingu, you were in the Rebel X-Wing pilot outfit?), and also shared a table at the Steak House with Obi, Padawan, and if I remember three other people, who I can’t remember for the life of me! (Sorry!) I remember one of them at the table asked “So who are you people?” To which I replied “Er… We’re just… like… sort of… the ‘English branch of Skywalker.dk for a weekend”. Of course, Miss Mara Jade, Anakin, “The shy girl”, and was it Miss Leia or Padme(?) (Oh shoot, I can’t remember! Really sorry, we probably talked to you the most too) met me.

I don’t think I am most suited to any particular Jedi, but I’m quite fond of Ulic Qel-Droma’s story, and his attainment of Force-Understanding regardless of being stripped of the use of it. I probably enjoy the thought of Lightsabers the most, out of the whole Star Wars Universe, closely followed by the idea of the Force (Although I don’t agree with many aspects of the Old Republic Jedi views), and then it would have to be the whole Dog-fight-in-space thing - I have Star Wars: Empire at War RTS and I usually just send out several squadrons of X-Wings and just watch them zip about the map.

As mentioned near the top of this post, I have two custom made Lightsabers, which I mainly owe to Mara Jade for giving me the site (thanks!), one’s blue, one is green, which are of the ‘CER’ style (don’t know if that means anything to anyone). They have Luxeon LEDs in the hilt and the blade is made from a polycarbonate rod, but I don’t think they are really for duelling (but they are just about sturdy enough for it).
I’m currently planning a new Saber-staff, of a style which I haven’t seen before (but doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist) where as you take two Rapier style hilts (like Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus’) and put them together to make a shape similar  to this:

             __
        __/
   
…although I’m still considering the usefulness of the design! :)   

Oh, and I like Garlic Bread. :D

I’m not sure if there’s anything else to say, this is quite long, so I guess I should wrap this up, thanks a lot for reading so much and I hope you’re still awake. ;)

Greetings. I'm the new guy, well here anyway.  :-D

My name is Dale & I am from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Home of the world's biggest shopping center, West Edmonton Mall.

I collect mostly vintage, bootlegs, the odd prototypes & animated Clone Wars statues plus my main focus SW Kubricks. I'm out of collecting modern SW, way too much & too hard on the wallet!  :wink:

Anyhoo, glad to be here, hope to hear from more international members.  :-)

Yes, of course it's all right to post here too. At first, I was thinking we wouldn't do it, but then I realized the English speaking people wont understand our other presentations, so...here goes - it's not gonna be as long as my Danish one, but still:

My name's Anna, but around here I prefer Mara. Actually, I think I respond to Mara more often than to Anna. The other night when I picked up the phone, I almost said "Hello, it's Mara" - and, here I have to note, it wasn't my phone, but my dad's, and he's a minister ;)

So, yeah, that's another thing. The minister thing. Don't you start with the "oh, you don't swear then, do you?" or "Oh, so you say a prayer every night then?" Or "Oh, so you go to church every sunday then?"
No, I don't. Well, I try not to swear too much - I do it around friends, I know, but that's just because I feel so free around you guys. But seeing as I am a minister's daughter, plus, I work with children, I try to keep it down a lot :)

So, well, I joined this forum in May last year, and I have to say, this is one of the best things I've done for myself :) I've gotten so many good friends here, and I've changed a lot in the past year, thanks to them. Meaning I've gotten a lot more selfesteem and stuff like that :)

And, well, the reason we're all here:
Star Wars :) I've been a fan since....well...somewhere between age 7 and 9, can't remember exactly :) but I loved it the moment I saw it - well, I did grow up with a father, who also loves SW, so.... :)

But, I'm not just a SW nerd (and yes, I am a nerd ;))
I love LotR, I really, really love to rp. Both NWN (YAY!!! NWN2 coming out soon!) and play by post
I like to write (both Fan Fiction and poems - I write a lot of those when I'm down)
I love music - listening to it, singing, playing the piano.
I LOVE acting, really.
I adore children - just ask just about....anyone ;)
I read a lot - love going to the library :)
hm... what else?
Yeah, Ayla_Rankin just taught me how to play Magic the Gathering :D So now I can add a thing to my nerdy list ;)

Yeah...that's me ;)

Hello

My name's Christina, but around here, I prefer to be called Jaina. I've been called by that name here for four years now and one of those years, I've been called it in person :wink:

I'm 22 years old, I'm a last year student in High School (let's just say, I were a little behind in the elementary school years) I've been a Star Wars fan, since I was 8 years old, when I saw my first Star Wars movie, which were Return of the Jedi, and began to read the SW novels at the age of 11.

I joined the Star Wars Fanclub Denmark in 2000 and were a member for a year. A year after my membership had passed, this forum had startet, and I joined, the moment I saw it, and i never regret it. Last year, I got the best friends here, I could ever have imagined.

It's a great place with nice people, and I hope you will think that too.

A little information on my Star Wars background:
- Fan since I saw Return of the Jedi the first time in 1992
- The first SW book I read, was Timothy Zahn's "Heir to the Empire" and the two others in the trilogy followed.
- I collect books and pictures from the movies, and now also autographs. I have three autographs from three SW actors: Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Ray Park (Darth Maul) and Paul Blake (Greedo)
- Favourite SW book: "Vision of the Future" by Timothy Zahn
- Favourite SW movie: Episode 3
- A big fan of the Star Wars Expanded Universe
- ETC.

I'm also fan of:
- Harry Potter: Favourite book "Halfblood Prince"; Favourite movie: "Prisoner of Azkaban"
- Lord of the Rings: Favoute book: Return of the King, Favourite movie, the same.

I also like to write, read both authentic books and fantacy books and see a lot of variated movie genres

My name in here is Bria Kenobi (Bria, because I realy liked Han Solo in the "old" movies, Kenobi because Obi-Wan is my boyfriend IRL).

I love SW, all fantasy like almost all the others in here! (lord of the rings, harry potter...)
I play guitar in my sparetime, sing, and spend time together with my friends (and Obi-Wan).

I study to be a nurse so it will be my future work....of curse, and right now i work at the hospital, my last "praktical period" in the study, I have 1 year back then I'm done....finally. I hope I'll get more time to enjoy my life... and SW.

Hey.

My name is Søren.
But like the others I go by my nick, Observer_DK or just observer.

21 years old and studying hard (very hard) a the moment.
I have been a fan i many years, but joined the Star Wars Fanclub Denmark about a year ago.

My other hobbies include, all sorts of sports, computergames and lots of other geeky things.

Like Jaina said, this is a great place with alot of nice and interesting people.

Well that's me :-D
Star Wars er tilbage og jeg ligeså.

Well, taking a small break from my homework, I figured I might as well relax with giving a short introduction to who's hidding behind the profile 'Ayla_Rankin'

Well, I happen to be yet another of these Danes on this Danish forum (peculliar there are so many Danes, right? :wink:)

My given name's Monica, but it's mostly my parents that use that. Around friends I've been known as Moni, Mon, Mo, 'Mon (demon, should any wonder). Aqua (not the stupid pop band, but the element of water. We were four very different childhood friends, how found it cool to take on the latin names for the four elements). Around here I respond to Ayla (or started to, when I started to meet Skywalkers, before that Ayla was merely an online nick, taking from an RPG-character I made back in 2001).

But basically, want to get my attention, yelling Ayla, Mon or Moni works most of the time.
I'm female, I'm 23 and believe my self a nerd on a handful of topics: Stargate SG-1, Elfquest (comic), Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and well. Plus I'm studying to become a librarian, if that's not a nerd-thing, I don't know what is. Heaven knows my school's full of nerds in all aspects of the word.
I roleplay, I started back in 2001 with play-by-post RPG and also LARP (live action roleplay).
The LARPing have been on a standstill the last two years due to my studying, but I still cling to play-by-post RPG, currently I'm running a Danish one. I did have an English one, but I recently declared it dead and gone (the friend wanting to help me with giving it a makeup, seems to have forgotten all about it and I've honest lost interest in the game it self and also did feel rather screwed by my friend).

And here I said I'd keep tne introduction short. What a joke, Mon.
Small facts:

I have a voice that can be heard easily (meaning I can and often is quite loud)

I don't need men, since I can lift all my heavy stuff on my own (and well, men's only good for lifting heavy stuff, right?  :wink:) No offense to anyone.

Contacting me on MSN is on your own responsebility, I'm known for biting off people's heads, if they bug me of the wrong day.

I have way too much temper and a thing against saying sorry, unless I really think it's needed.

I have my opinions and I'm not affraid of voicing them.

I hate wearing dresses and skirts, those are for women!

I don't have a star wars costume

Curently I'm playing 5 characters at my Danish RPG and one at an american friend's.

Before you start reading this, please be mindful that I'm awful at this.. Presentations I mean..

Soo, I'm Lienna (IRL known as Gitte, but don't try to pronounce it) and I'm 23.. Going on 24..
I love, and I do mean love, the entire SW universe.. I think it's the only place where you get almost everything at once.. I love costumes, and I love wearing them.. Still haven't finished a single SW Costume, but have a couple on the way.. (One for Mara and one for my daughter..)

My interest for Star Wars as always been there, a friend of mine and I used to watch OT once in a while (all three in a row), but it was first after AOTC I really got into it.. And it was first last (that sounds really stupid) year that i found this place..

Anyway, I'm a single mom, loving my daughter and she somewhat of a boyish girl.. What's it called?? Dunno, but she loves to play with cars rather than dolls, she likes to play with light sabers and plays football and she's totally devoted to trains.. A small misunderstanding from her uncles  :roll:

I also have a weakness for football, and by favorite team is Brøndby.. Some other inhere will try to convince you that F(u)CK, VB or some other team is better, but they aren't  :wink: And then of course FC Zulu.. Heh, they totally rule even though they really suck at it..

What else is there to tell?? Dunno, so please PM me if you wanna know..

I am Saché! I exist! Welcome to my country and its ethnic ways! I love pink! The people on this board are the craziest nicest crowd you'll ever find, you really should hang around here. I was originally from Egypt 4000 years ago, but when they excavated the tombs there was a puff of black and pink. "Oh mother!" they said. "Unnaturally!" I said. And there I was. Thus is my creation myth in short. Now I must take my pills. They are also pink, but only when I put on my pink glasses.. They pinkify the world and are the best investment I've ever done apart from buying that lawn mover. I don't have a garden but it's mighty handy to drip dry my laundry on. For further information please contact Saché c/o Psychiatric Hospital, Criminally Insane Ward, Copenhagen, Inside My Head.

k thx bye


And so I say the things I say and do the things I do!
And if you do not like it then to hell, my dear, with you!
