Daemon_d6, The Contributor
Gamer and avid reader of (almost) all things sci-fi and fantasy, coming to a place like this was probably inevitable.
I could say that I'm not particularly good at writing profile texts, but that would be somewhat over-used, and probably something of a social faux-pas in a community of writers, so I'll leave you with this:
28, male, North UK.
Currently working full time as a Corporate Security Officer.
Currently reading Surface Detail by the irreplaceable Iain M. Banks (for about the 5th time, I will add)
Current book collection consists of over 10 meters of shelf space, from a variety of authors, but mostly of the Science fiction (and most of that being Iain M Banks' work) and Fantasy genres (High Tolkienesque fantasy to some pretty gritty and grim low-fantasy) and is almost constantly being expanded upon.
Also recently made the move from last-gen to current with the purchase of an Xbox one X. If, god forbid, you have any interest in hanging out online, pm for my gamertag.
Anything else, well, it'll probably come out in the forums if its relevant.

For the love all things grammatical. You don't put a space BOTH sides of a full stop or comma, the punctuation follows directly after the word, with a single space AFTER it.
Also: My money's on Mizal winning any kind of mean-girl contest/bitch fight, etc. At least until Steve turns up.

I watched Aspec on Youtube play through the demo, and it looks absolutely brilliant, it's on my list of "Games I wan to play that I'm probably going to suck at". So fat that includes "They are Billions" and a couple other crafty/survival games.
What's the most you've spent on a game? on 4/17/2018 1:58:37 PM
I've only spent money on a mbile game twice, and that was to get rid of the godawful banner adverts. And even then it was about 99p on an otherwise free game.
DLC wise, though...
Fallout 3 + New Vegas, have all the DLC for both. I got the season pass for Vegas, although 3 was brilliant because I got the discs with two of the dlc on through a DVD & Game rental service I was subscribed to, so technically those didn't cost me anything I wasn't already spending.
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and Skyrim: All the DLC for both again. This time it was a bit more piecemeal, though.
Borderlands 1 & 2 - All the DLC for 2, as well as the Gaige character pack, skipped out on the other one though. for 1, I think I only picked up a couple of them, but I didn't play that one online, so it wasn't really as important.
As for regretting DLC purchases, probably all of the update packs for CoD Black ops 2 - There was a patch that went out one summer that just completely killed the game for me, as I used to play hardcore S&D almost exclusively with a close team of friends, and it just made the "sprint and spray" classes that where already a blight on the game way too OP to the point that was all anyone was playing.
One of my mates has probably spent a good couple hundred quid on his Star Trek Online account, as well as having paid about £300 for the lifetime subscription before it went .Free2Play.

Straight/hetero/"I like chicks"
Girlfriend is pansexual, and currently leaning towards the "I like chicks" end, but it changes now and then.

It's that "with any luck" part that's problematic..
You'll either get the min/maxing munchkins, attempted god-modders, or a railroading DM.

I had to have a look just to see what all the fuss was about, and jesus fucking christ that's obnoxious as all hell.

You forgot what I thought to be the most obvious of DnD tropes - The Min/Maxing Munchkin.

This is true.
But regardless, its still not made up of soft cunts wearing body armour.
Cotton polo shirt and shorts is all you get. Maybe a leather cap if you're in the scrum.
