Hello everyone. My name is Brooklyn and I started playing Prophets in 2001. I had just got out of juvee and my brother said, "Hey dumbass, play this game and shut up." Since I was on house arrest I thought, 'fuck it,' and sat on my Dad's shitty apple desk top playing a game that made my brother and I compete to see who would get to the computer and train first, everyday. All the while, pissing off our dear old dad with tons of cookies!! After nearly 20 years of addiction you guys had to go and make me play a better version!! My Lady is already pissed about it because her,"Pay attention to me!" time has decreased significantly. I bring electricity into multibillion dollar Hospitals for a living. Oh... And I am the King of the North..
I’m Dave from the UK and I’m a Primary School Teacher. I have probably played TPS for the past 20+ years and pretty much ruined my exams by playing instead of revising 🤣. I played when we had dial up internet and had to share a CPU with a friend of mine who lived 3 doors away.
Have played a few characters in Stax but for the last 10-15 years have played Ewalis in a stax (a crafter elf who wants to be a warrior) and Shendu the Orc in lambe.
Have enjoyed Agonia so far and been lucky enough to be in a faction with a lot of people I really enjoy playing with so it’s all good.
I'm from Belgium. I've been a student for the last 7,5 years. That makes me 25. I mastered in philosophy and now I'm in my final year of a master in law. So basically I've been on track if you're going for these 2 masters (I'm not sure if I can recommend it though. Law is rather aweful).
Gaming has always been a refuge for me from problems I didn't want to deal with. The melange of emotional solace I found in gaming, addictive stuff like leveling, my competitive spirit, the fantasy, the story-telling, the fact that (my) modern life is dull, etc. led to me develop a gaming addiction. I have trouble living without them (it never works, I find mind-numbing substitutes that I enjoy less), but some games just take too much time, and cause new practical problems I'd rather not face. I'm therefore always on the look-out for a game that I enjoy, but that isn't so immersive and time-consuming that other things I want suffer. I hope and think Agonia can bring about the right balance, but sometimes I hope to just get over this addiction.
My gf will come back from Erasmus in a short while (she's been away for half a year). She doesn't like that I game, bc she sees that I can suffer from it and she wants me (to want) to pursue bigger things. We'll live together in the near future. I'm not sure what this will mean for my love-hate relationship with games, bc obviously I love her and I don't want to be (much) less than her expectations.
I'm a member of the local green party, I do boxing, I play the drums and obviously I study. I'm politically progressive, I'm antifa. I'm always willing to discuss any political topic! I believe that I can learn from each open and honest discussion.
I've played years of Runescape, years of League of Legends and I thorougly enjoy games like Skyrim and the Witcher (only played the Witcher II). When I didn't play these games, I've played F2P browser games like Anno online, Travian or Forge of Empires. I've played a lot of random games over my life though.
I haven't been in contact with many of you, but I really like what you guys have going on here! Big respect for the devs.
