Hi there!
« on: October 09, 2014, 05:35:41 PM »
Hi. I'm Jon.

I'm a writer, mostly. I've been writing stories since I was eight years old. I've improved considerably since my mid-teens, I think. I write anything and everything from fantasy and sci-fi, to contemporary drama, and mildly supernatural type stuff. My best kind of comfort zone does lie in the Stephen King zone with the drama stuff that has miiiild supernatural elements, like hauntings or a phantom limb.

As a writer, I also take part in National Novel Writing Month, and I'm actually an ML for the Brisbane, Australia region. I'm pretty sure that this year will be my seventh or eighth year participating in NaNoWriMo, and it'll be my third year as an ML, helping organise the Brisbane region.

I've been into D&D and other related roleplaying games for the past few years, and I first played it not long after I started getting into it more heavily.

More recently, it's games like Dungeon World, Powers for Good, and Legend that are really taking a hold of me, among other indie rpgs, and I'm starting a Dungeon World campaign with some friends within the coming months, so I wanted to get kickstarted on making some settings to work with.

I'm also an avid fantasy cartographer. My skill level isn't too high, but I've done a fair number of maps which I've later done nothing with.

Anyway, hi again! I'll see you around.

G'day mate! Nice place you've got over there in Brisbane. I'll be heading there myself in a week's time, in fact - just passing through on flights up to Townsville.

Anyways. Welcome to the fold!

Nice, but bloody warm at the moment.

I can definitely do that. I may just do that every now and then when I'm a bit more used to the place.

Being in Australia, do you walk upside down? ShadowEagle is upside down for other reasons so we never get a definitive answer.

Well, mostly it's kinda sideways. We only walk upside down when the Earth is facing us that way.

Thanks for the welcome. :) Means a lot.
