Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and girls, children of all ages. BGG Werewolf proudly brings to you its Werewolf #92 of the weeeeeek! TheBannister!

TheBannister wrote:
Oops, nearly forgot to send the bio, how silly of me. Here it is:


Thank you for this prestigious honour, cgsaunde.
Greetings all. Im TheBannister, but you can call me Elsie. Its not my real name, but I feel that just adds to my mystique! My username comes from one of my old friends, who used to spout strange phrases at random times. I dont know why, but this one always tickled me: "As you slide down the bannister of life, lets hope the splinters are pointing in the right direction." Never a truer word said.

Im 23, and I grew up and currently live near Chester. Its a bit of an overpriced dump, but it makes the tourists happy, so I guess thats something. I moved back in with my parents after university, which was a bit of a shock to the system for all three of us, but the knife fights are only once a month now, so its getting better. I also live with two arthritic cats, and possibly the fattest guinea pig the world has ever known. I went to university in sunny ol Lancaster, where perhaps 90% of all the rain in the British Isles falls, and studied Philosophy. And obviously, the logical choice of a career after studying such a subject is to go into Her Majestys Civil Service. Which I loathe and despise with all my might. Still, I get to be an obnoxious arse to the general public, which certainly perks up my day.

I got into boardgaming by browsing the internet while I was supposed to be paying attention to my training, early last year. Got onto BGG, had a bit of a mooch, then left again. Then, for some reason, I got it into my head that boardgaming was geeky enough for me to enjoy, so I went back on in December, registered, researched some gateway games and, behold, an addiction was born. I later decided to join a game of Werewolf for a laugh (and to kill time during work, tax payers money be damned!). I possibly have the worst win:lose ratio ever, but Ive decided to be proud of my incompetence, rather than ashamed. A true civil servant to the end!

Before succumbing to that particular addiction, I concentrated on console games. I ended up working in a game shop during my university career, which was marvellous for me, but not so great for my bank balance. My favourites are Mass Effect, Okami and Silent Hill 2. Im also into film and books. Im no movie buff, but I like to be pretentious every now and then, just to piss people off. My favourite genres are horror, fantasy and sci-fi, although I loathe high fantasy like the stuff Tolkien wrote.
I also embrace one particular stereotype of being English, and that is that I have an unnatural love of tea. I like to think my love is pure, but others may disagree. I actually just bought yet another teapot from Chinatown in London, because one can never have enough teapots. I got into tea properly in the glorious smoky teahouses of China. Theres nothing like a bit of lung cancer with your oolong.

Now, the only things I could think of for this two truths and one lie thing were disasters that have befallen me, so here is my catalogue of woe:
1. Ive drowned twice.
2. I was bitten by a horse.
3. Ive broken my nose three times.


Congrats!

Congrats, Bann!

Ow, I have no idea on the truths/lie so I'll just ask WW questions:

- What's your favorite WW game that you've played in?

- What's your favorite WW game that you've read but haven't played in?

- What's your favorite role and why?

- What's your least favorite role and why?

1 or 3...hmmm...I'm going to guess 3.

Why am I your favorite person?

If you had to choose an animal as an avatar, which animal? Which color?

Would you like to join the A.B.A?

Browncoat fan, yes or no? If no, why do you deserve to dare to call yourself a geek?

Favorite book? Author? Staircase?

Why Elsie?

As I'm bored in work, and my managers have gone home for the day, I'll answer your questions now, young Leaves.

Leaves wrote:

Secret Whispers. I liked having a chatroom with someone, and it was my first game with the lovely JC, and she was my fellow wolf too!

Leaves wrote:
- What's your favorite WW game that you've read but haven't played in?

I haven't actually read any ones I haven't been in. I tried before I started playing, but I couldn't get involved in them, so I just jumped straight in... Look how that worked out for me...

Leaves wrote:
- What's your favorite role and why?

*Disclaimer: I'm not saying that I'm any good at this role, just that I enjoy it. *
I really like being the seer. I like having the information, and I like trying to figure out who is the best view each night (now doesn't that sound sexy?). I've also gotten into playing the dangerous game that is leaving hints. Can't say I'm spectacular at it though...

Leaves wrote:
- What's your least favorite role and why?

Sorcerer. I think I've only played it once on BGG, and I played it really badly. Obviously I needed a mentor like David! Maybe if I had the opportunity to play it a bit more I'd like it. I think I just find it difficult to play people when I don't know if who I'm playing is on my side or not.

You'll have to wait and see...

Because you're a naughty bunny!

Kaldar wrote:

A green cat.

Kaldar wrote:

I prefer to remain an independant party, and not become involved in the politics of bunny-hunting.

Kaldar wrote:

How dare you even ask me this question!

Kaldar wrote:

Favourite book - Sabriel, by Garth Nix.
Author - Fiction - Phillip Pullman. Non-fiction - Tom Hogkinson.
Staircase - There's a rather marvellous one in Caernarfon Castle that's taken my fancy.

Kaldar wrote:

It's my first two initials.

Edit: because I am poor at quoting.

Well come on now, I'm old. I can't keep up with these things. If your picture says you're a hamster, you're a hamster. Like I told someone, if I ever meet Kima I'm going to be really upset if he doesn't look like Hobbes.

You know, I'm so glad that my pain amuses you, Mr David. I don't even know why I play this game, it causes me so much pain and anguish. I go to bed at night and sob into my pillow.

Okay, I'm done now.

Ooh! I've actually had one of those! I basically pick apart any biscuit (or cookies, as you US citizens say), so I have to break it apart and eat the white centre before tackling the rest. You should see me eat a Mars bar. It's pure craziness.

Valkerie32 wrote:

Some yummy yummy damson gin that I'm making, and my Carrom board.

Valkerie32 wrote:

I think Deb would. She's got that quiet rage about her.

Valkerie32 wrote:

Hmm, I don't know. There's a lot of weird people out there. You know what I've always found weird? Doll collecting. Dolls freak me out. They just won't stop staring at you.

Valkerie32 wrote:

Spicy! Gots to have the flavour!

Valkerie32 wrote:

If it was Christopher Eccleston, I would. He's awesome. David Tenant? Meh. He's a bit bland, isn't he?

Valkerie32 wrote:

Son, I didn't understand a word you just said.

Honeycomb.

Just one question for now:

Why do your managers get to leave early, while you're stuck doing more "work"?

Grats, Bann.

1 is a lie; drowning is inevitable and leads to death.

Hence, you can have attempted drowning but never actually have done so.

Congratulations!

I think #1 is the lie, because it's so outrageous. You'd never be so up front about it...or would you?

Mark my words. Number 3.

Number 1, it seems very outrageous, but it could happen if you factor in CPR, metaphorical drowning, etc.

Congrats, Bannister!

If the Queen asked you to play a board game, which game would you play with her?

Did you learn anything in your philosophy courses that helps you in werewolf?

Do you prefer black tea or green tea?
