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.
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.
