Kaomaris online strategy game - http://www.kaomaris.com/
I started playing roleplaying games when about 12 years old. I first came across the fighting fantasy gamebooks which intrigued me, then in my first year at secondary school i came across a small group of D&D players. I was spellbound by this amazing game and the overall concept. We played other RPGs such as MERP and Warhammer and in later years played the likes of Fantasy Hero, GURPS and Call of Cthulhu. My early boardgaming was also with the first RPG group - predominantly these were GW games with a little Warhammer tabletop wargaming. I stopped all of it some years ago bar the board games and now all my game focus is purely on board games.

My choice in boardgames varies from Ameritrash to Euros to Wargames and although i prefer games rich in theme i do think there are some excellent eurogames available. I do not generally like the standard fare of boardgames available in high street shops which quite frankly is woeful.

I also currently play the online strategy game called Kaomaris: http://www.kaomaris.com/ under username Arjuna.

I play on Yucata under username: TemTemSefekh.

My religion is Vedanta. Extract from Vedanta Society of New York: Simply stated, VEDANTA includes the following fundamental principles:

Truth is ONE; sages call it variously. In other words, God is ONE; people following different faiths, worship Him in different forms.
Men and women, in their essential nature, are divine. The goal of their lives is to realize this divinity, just as Jesus said: "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God". There are many ways to realize this divinity. They are called Yogas. VEDANTA is not merely a speculative philosophy without any practical utility. It is a way of living and realizing. It gives full freedom to each individual to evolve morally and spiritually according to his or her faith and conviction. It includes various truths found in all religions of the world, including the teachings of the world's great saints and sages. In VEDANTA is found a reconciliation of religion with science, of faith with reason. A Vedantist is a seeker of truth who accepts and respects all religions as paths to the same goal.

Atmano mokshartham jagad hitaya cha - "For one's own salvation, and for the welfare of the world".

You Scored as Spock
You are Spock. You have great depth and intelligence. You strive to be the best you can be, and expect no less from others. You prize self-control and rational thought above all else. It is difficult to get to know you, but once someone penetrates your shell you are capable of great love, and are loyal to the death. Beware of asceticism--which you are prone to; sensual experience will make you a healthier, more well-rounded person.
