Blackrock here or Pete(r) as people might refer to me in RL (idiot, wiseguy and the like are also applicable) and this is an introduction of sorts. I usually don't know what to say in these threads, so I'm just laying out as it comes. I've been RP'ing for what I consider to be a long time now, a good 6-7 years of my life (on and off of course). I started out with MMO's and online games, but then (3 or so years ago) moved on to forum and play-by-post RP, which I found to enjoy much more due to the freedom it gives you. Since then I haven't really looked back. In general I'd class myself as an advanced RP'er - I prefer deep plots, meaningful and life-like characters and a desire to go beyond "just" telling a story. I also have the bad habit of writing long-ish posts, but that's only on my bad days In real life, I'm an university student, undergoing his 3rd year of torment (programming/maths); I love reading books and nerding it up with video games, though in my defense I also practice sports, such as swimming. Anything that I missed...? Nah, don't think so.
Nobody really recommended this site to me or directed me here, just used good ol' Google and found myself at the doorstep. Needless to say, I was positively surprised at the amount of activity this forum sees and I'll be happy to add my small contribution to it. I'll leave it off here and simply say that I look forward to meeting the people here and having a great time
