Hullo, been in game for a long time, but I am an eternal noob.  I am 46 yrs old, female although I usually play dudes.  Use any pronoun, I answer to them all, reduces confusion.  I do not play many games despite being pretty geeky, so my skills are terrible and I can be pretty clueless.  I am terrible at jumping.  I try not to let down the side, I listen to advice and will gamely try darn near anything.  I enjoy hard content like dungeons, and I am a patient and game companion in them.  I like PvP, am terrible at it, but will cheerfully cannon fodder for someone who will patiently tell me what to do.

My oldest toon Hreb is pistols/ele, his build is oookkkkkay.   I am mostly an RPer, and like all sorts of RP, light, medium, heavy, silliness and serious stuff.  I am always up for a chat, and love to try to talk other character's stories out of them.  He is nm qualified, and an ok dps.

I have a baby tank named SoftChild.  I think he'll wind up as fists/chaos, not sure.  He is maybe ql5 with a couple blues.

​Welcome on board. 

I've been delving into the RP side of things here in TSW but haven't done much in-game. It's mostly Twitter and Forum based. I really need to do more in-game. I love seeing what people come up with.

Can't wait to see you in game sometime.

I am a Old returning Player. I came back not to long ago with a New Rig. My old computer barely got the job of NMs and missions done it flopped on raids or any area with mass groups of people. Now that I am back with a better Rig I would like to get into some more "Heavy" task.

Baesty    24

Where to start... at the beginning, I suppose?  My most common handle online is Baesty.  I've been MMO gaming since I dipped the toe with World of Warcraft about 8 years ago.  My gaming 'career' started at an early age when dad used to bring home written off PCs from his workplace.  I was fluent in DOS by the age of about 10.  I've done the MMO rounds of WoW, SWTOR, Rift, Defiance, FFXIV: ARR, ArcheAge, Guild Wars 1 & 2, etc etc. 

I spend most of my time engrossed in RPGs, which is one of the reasons why I've gotten into The Secret World so heavily.  The other reason is you guys!  I actually started playing a couple of years ago, but stopped when I got up to questing in Egypt because I had built around healing with the intention of duoing content with my missus who had lost interest in the game.  After getting disenfranchised by WoW after the past few expansions, and watching the community get worse and worse, I decided to come back and try TSW again.  This time I looked up a build that I could solo with, and in my first week of coming back, I got linked in with the Sanctuary channel.  Not too long after, I purchased a GM pack because of you guys.  I've never encountered such a tightly-knit, helpful community in ANY MMO I've ever played, and it restored so much faith in multiplayer gaming.  I quit most MMOs after a certain amount of time due to not being able to connect with a decent community, and am well past my days of applying directly to guilds/clans/cabals and having to 'prove myself worthy' of being a member.  Getting too old for that shit.

Baesty, the character, is based on a typical archetype for me when I make a character in an RPG: tomboy/butch female, blue mohawk (if the game allows it), that punches things in her adventures and heals things as a nice distraction from the humdrum of smashing face.  There's a little more detail on the character in the fashion contest event page.  You wouldn't believe how excited I was when I found out that Fists were considered a healing weapon in TSW!  I also like to play/RP a character generally named Erzengel, who is a blonde, green eyed overzealous religious paladin... guess which faction he ended up in in TSW :P

I'm half British, half Aussie, living in the world of upside downs and killer everythings.  27 going on 70, and have been with my partner for 4 and a half years after we met in WoW.  I probably talk a little too much about myself, and filter very little out.  I also swear like a sailor with his dick caught in a meat grinder.  So I apologise in advance if I come across as weird, arrogant, or just outright crazy.

As you may have seen from my slight attention-whoring, I'm currently in hospital for a bit.  It's nothing over dramatic, just some ongoing treatment and medication issues that are easier to deal with when under 24 hour care.  It's a bloody expensive private hospital, so I have the luxury of being able to game on a laptop with limited wifi.

~~~~~~~

In TSW, I've just finished Issue 9 on Baesty, completed all of the elites, and done The Gatekeeper as a healer.  I'm still a bit nervous about doing NMs, so I'm spending a lot of time just faffing around doing not much at all.  PvP holds little to no interest for me.

Erzengel is still at the start of Kingsmouth, as I abandoned him there to help my missus and a friend breeze through the area on their new characters.

Greetings everyone. I've been playing solo for a couple and a bit years, and have recently made the jump into Sanctuary chatting and generally acknowledging that there are other people to enjoy the game with. Better late than never!

Welcome to the asylum. Please leave your sanity at the door and report any suspicious behavior to the floor manager. If you see a PONY, shoot first, ask questions later. 

Enjoy your stay!

If you suddenly find yourself pink and/or harboring a love for ponies do not be alarmed.

It is a completely normal phenomenon.

 

All hail IPU!

Warning:

Once your soul has been given to me, the blue one or the PONY, it cannot be reclaimed. The Sanctuary Network and the Sanctuary Foundation cannot be held reponsible for the shit you do with your soul. Any complains can be reported to the Sanctuary Council and they will probably end up on the bottom of a big pile of papers.

​Of course you would give them the disclaimer after they joined and effectively signed their soul over.

That's so corporate.

Reminds me of that idea to print the best before date inside the yoghurt cups.

I still wonder how you distribute all the souls you collect, Poker?

Also that's probably one probably too much. You probably should get the legal department to look it over once more. Probably.
