"Dungeons and wizards and dragons and castles. Is this all you ever think about Mr Dickinson?"
"I eat, breathe and sleep 'em!".
-Flight of Dragons
That quote pretty much sums me up as a gamer. I love games of all shapes and sizes.
I'm primarily into roleplaying. It is a fantastic and engaging hobby which, for me at least, has a deeply spiritual element too. How many other folks can say they get to hang out in other worlds during their spare time?
My favourite genre, by far, is fantasy closely followed by supers.
I am a prospective social work student who resides in the North West UK (aka South Scotland!). I currently work part-time while studying short courses and volunteering with some local organisations. I have a passion for social justice in every quarter of society and fighting for folks who need a hand in their corner.
My aim is to return to university when I can afford to and get my social work degree.
2016 UPDATE: I will be returning to university in September this year to study for my BA (hons) Social Work. Made it!
Asides from gaming and social work my other interests are playing guitar, aikido and bodyweight training and running.
My only lament is that there aren't enough hours in the day!
Thanks for visiting. Please feel free to send me a hello!
"The gaming industry is about convincing people to pay for their own imagination.
The hobby is about helping people to empower that imagination.
Too often, the latter objective is treated as a distraction from the former."
"Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid... He is the hero, he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor, by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world." Raymond Chandler"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your love." Marcus Aurelius"Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world." Musashi
