Hey all. I’m Fat. Yes, blink, rub your eyes, shake your head, do whatever you need to do to ensure that you did, indeed, read that name right.
I’m nothing more than your average MMO player. I’ve been enjoying various MMOs for the last three years. My start came from Anarchy Online when a friend introduced me to it three years ago. I instantly fell in love with the game. Even though it has its problems – much akin to any MMO out there – I have been unable to escape its grasp for no longer than a handful of months at a time. No matter how much I try to rid myself of it, I always end up going back there.
In my little breaks from AO, I’ve played EQLive, Eve Online, City of Heroes, World of Warcraft, Guild Wars… and a couple others I can’t recall at the moment. I’ve been a bit around the block, but currently I’m an avid AO/EQ2 player when my work schedule allows it.
As far as KTR goes, I’ve been reading this ‘blog for about a year or so now, and have enjoyed the contributions Ethic and his staff have made for this page. So when I saw the chance to join the website, I figured why not. Someone has to represent AO after all. It does still exist!
I’m nothing more than a college student majoring in Creative Writing who thoroughly enjoys playing video games of all kinds. Due to living in a small town that only has Dial-up internet connection, it is hard to play EQ2 with my main – a level 53 SK who is MT for my small guild – so a lot of my writing will probably focus on AO. But we’ll see, maybe this will kick me into EQ2 a bit more – I know my guild leader would love it if I were able to play it more.
Since I’m a Creative Writing major, I also might geek myself up a bit here and there and do some fantasy, in-game writing like Ethic did with Eve Online. It’s interesting and fun to do, so I figured why not try and contribute something that might be more entertaining than my usual rants and raves.
Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading my posts, and I look forward to being a part of the KTR community. So my thanks to Ethic, the KTR staff, and the readers for being here and welcoming me into the fold.
