Introduce Yourself!

Hi all,

Thought I'd start a thread to allow people to introduce yourselves.

Here's me:

I'm Gicker. I've been mudding since 1995, when my Dad brought home the Internet through Delphi. My first MUD was called Empire, which is now known as Imperium. Not long after I ended up playing a circleMUD called Age of Dragons. I played there for several years and got my first experience coding for MUDs there as well. In 2001 I started a d20 rules dragonlance MUD called Gates of Krynn with a few friends. The project never reached fulfillment, so I donated the code to Zizazat at Circle with Goodies. He used some of it to create CWG Rasputin, a d20 rules CircleMUD distro.

In 2005 I began coding again, and started d20MUD using CWG rasputin. I began with the Forgotten Realms theme, but bounced around over the next 6 years or so between FR, Dragonlance and a custom theme. In January of 2012, just after Star Wars the Old Republic MMO launched, I started working on d20MUD Star Wars, and that's been my focus ever since.

Finding myself wanting a fantasy MUD outlet, I finally decided to relaunch the Forgotten Realms version. As of this writing it's under development, and hiring builders and quest writers.

On a personal side of things, I'm from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I'm just about to turn 40 years old as of this writing. I'm happily married with 2 beautiful daughters. I enjoy MUDs (obviously) MMORPGs and single player RPGs, and the occasional shooter. I en joy Crossfit, Shotokan Karate and Basketball. I enjoy watching NHL Hockey (Calgary Flames) and MLB Baseball (Washington Nationals). I'm an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as well. if you're curious what we believe.

And that's me in a nutshell :) Hope to hear from others. Cheers!
