Hello fellow EP enthusiasts.
First off a warning: I am new to RPGs, but have read all the eclipse phase books and listened to many actual play recordings, and think I get the basic idea. Role-playing is something I'm actually very surprised I never tried out before now, being a tabletop and board gaming enthusiast, the social circles seem to mesh a lot of the time.
I'm currently living in the city of Brighton and Hove, so if there's anybody here in this part of England, a meetup would be fun. However, I am not adverse to the idea of using technology to play with anybody else who happens to be in a European time-zone, especially considering I am more likely to find a group that way.
Due to my job, I am free at all times, any day of the week, but occasionally have to disappear for a bit. When I do disappear, I will still usually be able to get in touch via email. If you are wondering what it is I do, I'm a navigational officer in the merchant navy, and have previously mostly worked on container ships, but am now switching to short passenger contracts as I kind of enjoy having a social life. But it still means I will be on ships for a few weeks at a time, and then have tons of free time off. As such if you are running a play-by-post campaign and need a new player, this could be a good solution for longer campaigns for me... you may have to explain how play-by-post actually works, but that's what skype is for.
If you need a player, or are starting a new campaign, help a brother out and get in touch through the forum or via skype (ID is lucas.pauling). Don't be surprised if you see me online but don't get a response immediately, as I pretty much leave skype running 24/7. I will however get back to you when I return... I promise.
As for my play style... well honestly I'm not sure as I am new to this, but I do enjoy the ideas of contradictory characters. The pre-gen character that is a human-impersonator AGI for example. And if my thought process can be extrapolated from video game RPGs, I mostly use a chaotic neutral play-style, where I enjoy dark humour, am not always the nicest of persons, but when it really matters I will always pull through for the good ending. (I also enjoy the pretty explosions, as evidenced by my play-through of Fallout 3 as a good character, except for the act of setting off the megaton bomb... I couldn't resist and man was that fun to watch)
Anyway, that's it from me.
Shout-out to any EVE Online players as well, particularly BRAVE members.
