Austin is the capital of Texas we are pretty much in between Dallas (3 hours north), Houston (3 hours east) and San Antonio (2 hours South).
As for my name Either is fine. Interesting story for you though I came up with the name argash for a character in a drangonlance campaign in the 80's but the campaign didnt last more then a few adventures. I liked the name though for some odd reason so when I first started going onto BBS systems I used argash as my username. later I just kept using the name for everything online.
Now heres the funy part. I started Playing Ever Quest litterally like 2 days after it went live. My first character: Argash. Played him for a little while then found out all my friends where on another server. So I switched to play with them wich was great because I found i didnt like the class I had picked first and it let me start over. So of course I named this character Argash as well.
Well then a few years later the Velious expansion came out and there was an NPC in one of the major towns named "Argash." Now anyone who's played Ever Quest can tell you it is a MAJOR (well at the time anyway) no no to name you character after an NPC (at the time their coding sucked and couldnt tell the difference if your name was the same as an npc.
So of course a power crazy ( or just plain crazy) EQGM sees me one day makes the connection and starts threatening to ban me yada yada yada. Never mind the fact that I was like level 40 or so and the d**n expansion had just come out (couldnt power level THAT fast yet).
So long story short it took awhile to get EQ to lay off me but it was fun So call me what you will Argash or Erik I will answer to both. And for those curious no i no longer play EQ. No I will not go back to it, no I dont care how cool the latest expansion is!
I quit the crack edition earlier this year and I have no desire to go back
/me scrolls up.... dang that was long winded sorry for the length there
