Title: Who are you?
Post by: Jaylee on June 02, 2013, 07:55:24 pm
Hey there!!  My name is Jaylee, which is also my nickname IRL.  I am a single mom to 3 kids, ages 10, 15, and 17.  I was in the Navy for several years and now I work as a nurse.   I have been playing KoL for around 9 years now.  My original character was deleted for inactivity and when I came back I started this one.  In-game I collect stuffed fairies and vampire pearls.  I have several alts in KoL: Stormfire, Kami, and Welcomewagonger.

If anyone ever needs any help in-game, feel free to send me a kmail.  I try to answer them everyday but sometimes I get behind and it may take me a few days...

Hi there!

My name is Max and for some reason I have always kept Alex Trebek-related internet accounts.  Someday this will surely result in some sort of dissociative identity disorder.

I registered for KoL back in '04 and remember back when ascension was a brand new thing!  Then... I promptly quit playing for years.  I accidentally got permed from a hannukimbo dreidl, so my account lives!

I'm in pharmacy school and so I imagine there will be times where I'm less able to play, but I enjoy the zen feeling of beating a new boss, being able to survive a new zone, or just ascending quickly and efficiently.

Thanks for having me here!

I'm Zan, 34 Aussie and a solo mum to a 10 month old boy. I found KOL too many years ago....was probably about 8 years ago? KOL still makes me smile. What else can I say? I like odd. I have a "Knob Goblins Fear My Moxie" sticker stuck up at work...and I work in a professional environment, so people think I'm odd too.  ;D

I'm a 35 year old US citizen living in Cambodia. I found KoL about a year ago and love it! No kids but I do live with a very demanding cat named Zaphod Stormageddon Meow. I'm currently on a Zombie Master run and it's effin' hilarious!

Hi, I'm Tyler,

I'm a Sophomore in college, double majoring in Computer Science and Computer Engineering at WVU Tech. I've been playing since I was in the 6th grade (though off and on and I can't remember my first account. I miss my Coffee Pixie). I'm currently working my way through an onslaught of HCO, HC BM, and other runs. Also on a side project, I'm working on developing a Writing Forum and/or Game I dub Cavemen vs Zombies.

Nice to meet y'all!

I'm an Aussie working in Silicon Valley and a relative newbie to KoL.

My wife introduced me to KoL and then abandoned her character .... unless there is limited time content or Crimbo. Then she wants to play again.

My alt is "Sinick" and my name is just my initials. The "d" is for David". The "e" is also what people say when they see me ("ewww").

Glocknare here.  Hello.  I started playing kol in college around 10 years ago, give or take little.  Played for a few ascensions then stopped and when I came back my account was gone so I started this one.  My goal is to get skills through ascension.  I have a few so far but intend to get a lot more.  I love RPG's but rarely get to play them so this is my fix.  Ok gotta go, getting jittery and need to smash things.

Hi! My name is JohntheDwarf! John the Dwarf was one of the early "desert fathers" of early Christianity and had some insight I greatly appreciate. I am currently 26, married, and a children's minister teaching about 20 kids each week! My first run took over 6000 adventures and I only played sporadically over the course of 2 years. But now I play more consistently!  I have ascended about a dozen times at this posting and finally decided to join a clan. I look forward to being a part of the community and contributing in a positive way.

I am Kenyon Oreblood. I am a forty-something father of nine (ages 15, 13, 13, 12, 6, 5, 3, 2, 11 mos). I have worked in the financial sector for the majority of the 21st Century. In the 20th Century, I was a professional musician. I am planning to return to college soon, to complete a degree in Applied Mathematics. I have recently returned to New York, after spending 20 years wandering the deserts of Arizona (ok... not really... I lived in Phoenix).

I played KOL many moons ago, but only for a very short time. I have returned just recently, and completed my first ascension a few weeks ago. Woo Hoo!

Hi, I'm Catherine. I am 55, and I have 3 adult children. I live in southeast Alaska. I'm widowed, but I have a boyfriend. I work as a field officer at an animal shelter.  I don't use zoloft, I just thought it sounded like a neat name. Grimmy was nice and gave me my present title. That was very sweet of him! My alt is "SunshineC", but I don't use it very often. I'm really happy I joined this clan. I think it's the best clan in KoL!

My name is Bryan.  I work in IT and live in the Southeastern US.

I discovered KoL from the xkcd forums almost 3 years ago.  And I've played about 6 days a week ever since!

I joined Old CW's earlier this year because I wanted to be in a clan with people who actually play the game.  And I'm glad I did.

Also, I go to KoLCon.  So if you're ever there, say hi!

It's cool reading about you all. You lead very interesting lives behind your clannie names in chat!

I'm Haroldine, which seemed like a female seal clubber name. I'm a forty-something married woman in upstate New York with a teenager and pre-teen and a Newfoundland. I edit romance novels for a living. I love it, but it often requires breaks to smash monsters. I also write young adult fiction. Nothing published yet, although Highlights Magazine bought one of my fiction stories. I've been playing KOL for about 4 years, and I took over my son's account, AwesomeSolarJigsaw, but I don't use it often. I collect ancient ice cream scoops in game.

Please say hello in chat!

Hello, clannies.
My RL name is Marius, I'm 39, I live in Eastern Europe.
Been playing for quite some years (>5), I have some chars in different other clans.
Well, I don't really play nowadays, I have simply scripted my daily adventures.
I'm still fascinated to discover arcane and obscure references in the game, and I mostly like to explore the new things when they get implemented.

I'm Thea, a relative youngster according to most of the intros so far at 37 (and boy do I love that, I'm used to being the oldest person in most internet and/or fandom-based discussions), living in Michigan with my partner and a heap of fuzzy, four-footed kids (cats and rabbits). I returned to KoL from a long absence around the beginning of the year, but I was originally around in 2004 (I have extremely vague recollections of the Penguin Mafia stuff, and I'm still peeved that my old characters are gone because at least one of them had a TPS). I actually came back, under a multi, to join a clan of refugees from a wonderful game called Glitch, but this character somehow turned into my main one, possibly because I picked her to try AoJ with, and it turns out I LOVE AoJ, so I did three or four hardcore runs before meandering on to try some other stuff.

Jay from Jersey.

I've been a professional web developer for (ouch) 11 years in the private sector.

Discovered KoL last year from one of the AmA's on reddit.... after discovering that reddit from Fark.

Was lucky enough to discover this clan from the clan top 10 list, after having played some Halo on xbox with chat enabled.

I've done enough ash scripting to at least be coherent, and am trying to decrease my sub-optimalness.

hiya :) i was also in the navy for a bit, and am becoming a nurse, but I am not jaylee ;) mostly because I have 2 cats instead of kids.

who i am is bethannie, from western ny: full-time student at least until december. my cats are freak and kittycore (i mention them often in chat). the bf i just call by his old kol name "janxy."

umm... i have no life outside of school, kol, and steam, because nursing school is exhausting. i'm pretty laid-back, and willing to help/answer questions, and if i don't know the answer, i will try and help you find it.

also, i dislike capital letters.

also also, in game i am HighPriestessOfTinsel, Wembley Fraggle, and Janxy (but he's only a farmer, so i rarely chat on him)

Soluzar is also known as Richard. I play lots of games. I tend to wander off from KoL a lot, but I will always come back.

I don't have much to say about myself, but if you haven't already chatted to me in the game, try it next time you see me. I'm friendly.

Hey Guys,

In game name is Grenmark, I have been in the clan for a long while now but work has been keeping me busy. Things have been getting exciting here though so I thought I should poke in and say hi as I gear up to play a bit more. I live in California, just south of San Francisco. I'm 27 (just had my birthday on July 30th!) and I work tech support for a startup. I try to make sure I'm always in chat when I'm on but again, it's been a while. I'm a few ascensions in, I usually run HC challenge paths. Definitely intrigued to try more dungeons, I played in the slime tube many moons ago but I never really got into Hobopolis so I'd love to do that and of course Dreadsylvania looks fun. I'd be happy to help in any way I can.

Hello everyone!

My name is Barb, and I live in Pennsylvania.  I first started playing KoL in 2004, and I'm lucky enough to still have my original character (Lydian).  I decided to start over since it has been so long since I last played.  I was never in an active clan before, so I thought it would be nice to have people to chat with this time around.  :)

Hello folks.  I'm shirts--on the other side of the scrimmage field from skinz--and live/work in Canada.  I do both paperwork and non-paperwork. I've been playing KoL on and off for awhile, and like it a lot.  I keep at it regardless of changes in my non-paperwork work, but sometimes the paperwork work gets more intense--it ebbs and flows, seasonally--and when it piles up, I'll miss some KoL for a week or so.

I've been on and off this game since around 2009, but it's always fun to pick it back up. It's surprising how when reading through the introductions I don't see people's ages beginning with a 1, heh. Hopefully I can show that teenagers today aren't all bad =P I'll be lurking clan chat for the most part.

Hey guys,
I'm Joachihm(totaly unrelated to my real name) from Germany and I've spent a little over 24 years on this weird planet.
Due to my work I travel quit a bit which will probably cause me to be inactive more than I'd like to be. Matter of fact I'm in Chile at the moment working 60-70 h per week. KoL came as a perfect distraction from all the stress for me. However I have no clue what I'm doing in this game but I like it so far.

Coming up on three years playing KOL. If there's something I can do to help, lemme know, otherwise... lemme know anyway.

I'm... Kevin Wolf, and am unsure of why I entered my name for my character when I signed up. I've played enough games in my life to know you can almost always name your character as you like in RPG type games. I suppose, at the time, I thought an MMORPG required a direct response or something...ugh how I wish I could change it.

But anywho, I'm an art teacher in St. Louis. I draw comics, like to go rock-climbing, and live with my two cats in south city. I'm a big fan of retro-gaming, mexican food, and I like me a fine glass of Merlot with a scary zombie movie.

I've had multiple previous KoL accounts, but all of them were deleted. (Yes, before they stopped deleting accounts)
This is the longest continuous stint of playing, and the only character I've ascended, so I'll probably keep at it a while.

It's been great hanging out in chat and getting to know everyone!

Male, US West Coast, 40's, work in IT. Anything else can come out in chat.

Thanks for having me in the clan!

My name is Michelle.  46 years old, St. Louis resident for most of my life.   I've been playing KOL for about 10 years.  Believe it or not I had multis older than Sevain who were deleted before I finally settled on Pastamancer for my permanent incarnation.   (Who knew things would evolve the way they have?)  I've taken long breaks here and there but have come back after every other game just can't make me laugh the way this one does.   I am a rabid completionist (where meat allows) and a trophy hound of the worst kind, rather proud that I slip in and out of 1st place in the Kingdom in that category.   I love ascending but my long-term memory and knowledge of the game grows sketchier with every re-vamp.  Always happy to help any way I can.
One alt in the clan (P Sleazy) who is happy to cage-sit or anything else.   

I have 2 cats, an erstwhile boyfriend, and a 17 year old daughter.  I am on and off throughout the day as my full time job at this point is re-habbing an 85 year old tudor cottage we bought a few years ago.   

Enjoying my time in the clan and happy to have found somewhere comfortable and friendly after so many years in the game.

Early Forties, kids, wife. Love sci-fi/fantasy. I was part of the clan a couple years back but never got real involved. I posted a couple times in the old forums around the "floaty sand" time. I only see "The Welcome Wagon" and wonder if there is something I am not seeing.

I made the mistake of remembering Crimbo this December and kinda got sucked back in. Who knows if it will last? Currently doing some lazy meatfarming to get a Mr. A.  The lure of the new sea content is strong as it was not here when I left and I just reloaded Mafia.

Hello Hello!

Call me Joe. Been playing on and off since at least 100 years ago. Okay not really. About 8 years or so now. Went through a half dozen accounts over the years before finally settling. Currently slowly piddling through college to join that sweet sweet stem field. Honestly spend most of my "internet" socializing on 4chan. But hey, maybe this whole internet handle thing isn't crazy. Supposedly you crazies don't bite too hard. I love to meet people, in all walks of life. Enjoy reading most things. Almost read through tv tropes once or twice, so if you like any sort of fiction we can probably have lots of fun.

Not sure how to finish, so here's a video of a school bus:

Hey clannies.

I'm Jeff, 42, 2 kids age 15 & 18 (oldest one is graduating in a few weeks, still trying to wrap my head around that). I did 39 years in Chicago, then I came to my senses & moved to just outside of Phoenix.

An adventurer have been I for a long time, but I went inactive for quite awhile.

My RL name is Jean.  I have used my screen name on a few RPGs when I first started playing games.  I wanted something that described my easy-going personality. Soon after I realized it wasn't a very good role playing name, but I still use it on a few places and since you can't change names here, its still here.  You can call me Jean or "Nexie" if you want to use my game name.   My new name on other games is either Eden Dawn, or Jeyne.

I live in Southern Wisconsin, USA.  I will be turning 46 in 2 days, married for 24 years this September, no kids but a HUGE garden.  Almost 2 acres that we take care of ourselves mostly for fun and of course food.  Five years ago I lost a job I loved (and had for 18 years) due to cutbacks and the economy.  I found another and am grateful that I did, but I hate it so don't ask :P 

I haven't been very active here despite enjoying the quirkiness of the game. I am trying to get on more, and would like to learn more about all the aspects of the game, including the clan basement, buff bots, etc.

Hi. I'm Joel. I've played before, back in 2006/2007, but lost my accounts to inactivity after all my IRL friends moved on to other games and I wanted to be cool.
I started up a new one recently, and I'm already feeling new to this again.
Guess that comes with the fact I've been away for so long.

I want to get into the community here, since last time I never bothered with the social elements of the game, what with playing with friends I saw every day.

Currently no alts, though I may get around to that eventually.

Hi. I am Tamyra, I started playing back in '08 at the suggestion of my Dungeon Master, then he moved to Korea and  Kol was the way we kept track of each other. I have two multis- SueSue and Dewanda but they are in other clans and only really share my knit hat collection. I'm only playing sporadically now, but  this is my rpg fix, since real life doesn't include any D&D. I live in North Central Minnesota and at the moment have 8 cats and my best friend living in my house and I work at a big frozen french fry factory. Kol has been a blessing. I'm liking the new content.

Hi IRL my name is Jim and I currently live in Ottawa, Canada (the town that fun forgot). I am (as of writing this) a 48 year old single parent with two now adult daughters aged 20 and 18. Both are gamers but neither plays KoL, go figure. I am a big fan of RPGs (the games, not the weapons) of all forms and have been playing since I was a young teen (I have a particular weak spot for JRPG video games). I've apparently been playing KoL since about 8 months before I moved back to Canada from where I was working in North Carolina, USA (2009). After a "fun-filled" 25-year long career doing high-technology and project management thingies internationally, I walked away from it all and have been a full time undergraduate starving student at Carleton University since 2009 (my first time going to a post-secondary institution). I'm a bit slow at it with everything I have going on (and my brain isn't as spry as it once was), but I expect to graduate in two years with honours degrees in both Theoretical Physics and Feminist Studies (trying to fire both sides of my brain at once). I am also a private pilot, inventor, amateur musician, and I have a weekly radio show on CKCU called "The Dollar Bin" where I play music I have randomly found in dollar bins (must be $3 or less for sale in a retail store), almost all of which I had never heard before, by bands I didn't know: http://cod.ckcufm.com/programs/371/info.html. You can play my shows "on demand" or hear them streaming live if you "tune in" over the 'net (if you're actually in Ottawa or environs, tune in to 93.1FM). I blog publicly at http://pheloniusfriar.dreamwidth.org/ if you want to go full Internet stalker have any interest in my various ramblings. And yes, my handle is a jazz pun (I've been using it for my various online names since the late 1990s and use it on my radio show as well).

I grew up listening to my Mother's ABBA / BeeGees record collection, so you can imagine my excitement when I first found out that one of this game's characters was a Disco Bandit.

I work at an on-line customer support center, with full internet access at my station during work-hours, so I have a lot of free time between chats with customers to adventure on kol.

I started playing KoL in 2008 but I never finished my first ascension and stopped playing for reasons I can't remember now! I just started playing Fallen London and it reminded me how cool this used to be. My account was still active so I have now finished my first ascension (I guess 8 years is pretty slow for the first one  ;)). So much has changed in the game since then and I'm looking forward to playing through and discovering it all over again.

I'm a 22 yo human male living in Poland. I work in a factory, in a three shift system. I'm a schizotype and stray from human interaction unless necessary (although I'm friendly and helpful when approached), so you won't see me much in the chat, but feel free to chat me up if you need some help or wanna talk a bit (I hate crowds, but 1 on 1 interaction is perfectly fine). If you know any hot, buxom females in my area looking to do the dirty deedI'm not really looking for friends, but I'll be doing my best in contributing to the guild and you can always (just not all the time) chat me up for free consumables or help in getting a particular item or whatnot. That's the gist of it, see y'all in the game.

Hi, my name in KoL is Arthur13 and I found this game after looking for remplacements for Glitch. Although I have 2 ascensions under my belt, I still am a precious newbie and I need tutoring :P. After having suffered a cheat of a part of my meat (although I was in a part irresponsible since I was the one who dumped so much meat) (500K, and I had 900K from a Time Lord Mug) I moved here, since the people here is more friendlier and the costs are cheaper.

Hi, my name is Riley. I'm 21 and from the East Coast of America. I am rather shy until I get to know somebody, so I'm not sure how much I'll be on the forums or in chat. I'm also mainly homebound with 24/7 migraines and another headache disorder at the moment, plus some mental health stuff, so I may not be on KoL every day, but I'll certainly do my best.
I've never ascended before (though I'm up to the Sea and and the Naughty Sorceress' hedge maze) so I'm definitely not the person to go to for advanced questions, although I'll definitely try to be as helpful as possible.
I am also trying to donate as much as I can to the clan, to hopefully balance out my lack of person-to-person interaction as of yet.
Everyone seems rather nice, so I'm happy that I've joined  :D

In addition I'm active in Learned League and the National Puzzlers League.

Greetings! I am a mysterious entity named after my stuffed toy cat who is named after nothing in particular.

I played KoL a little a few years ago - just enough to ascend once, and then NS13 happened and I lost interest somewhere in the middle of something to do with frat boys and hippies in my second life - and I thought I would stop by and see what has changed since my last visit.
(As it turns out, pretty much everything.)

For nostalgia's sake, I am once more a Pastamancer.

Hi, I'm Shikyo - the added sama at the end was from when I made this character like almost nine years ago. I haven't played in ages, and only recently picked up the game again within the last few months, so there's been many new additions to explore and re-learn.

I'm 29 and a single dude, and mainly play the game when I'm home from a late shift at work - so right after rollover occurs. (Or on the occasional day off when I've actually got time in the afternoons.)

Hi, I'm Nalk. I started playing in 2011 and joined Old CW's shortly thereafter (I was warmly welcomed with a Tickle-Me Emilio that still sees much use), but I've only been busy in clan dungeons for about the past year. If you've been in Hobopolis or Dreadsylvania recently, you may have seen me blithely screwing around and trying not to violate too many policies.

Also (and I recognize that this is probably not the best place to raise this question) I'm not sure how to get access to the rest of the forum areas; the link in-game - "After you have activated your account, you have to get FULL forum permissions. In order to do this you must follow this link:", etc. - seems to be pointed at the old, inactive forum.

I'm Kawa. I'm also one of those people that stepped away from KoL for far too long (I think I left right when Hobopolis was first rolling out). You can thank Mr. Skullhead's Reddit AMA (and the perfect dadjoke "I'm giving away my used batteries! They're free of charge!") for my coming back .I'm really excited about getting to know all the new content with you!

I'm hoping to slowly and semi-casually work my way towards Level 30 as a Disco Bandit and earn my Manual of Transcendent Olfaction in the process. I'd like to see all the things I missed with clan content and the sea, too!

When I'm not playing KoL I'm figuring out what to do with the math degrees I earned when I was out, eating plenty of cheese, watching Minecraft Youtube videos (<3 Mindcrack!) and pondering how vast and wonderful the world of free low-overhead games are. (I'm also super into roguelikes; I play Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup on CSZO webtiles, and if you understood that statement without looking anything up please let me know because it'd make me so happy. <3)

It was only when someone at work was talking about matchstick men fighting (they'd seen it on a TV programme apparently!) and it triggered a memory!
I've been back playing it for about 2 months now and I am more into it than before!

Hello folks,

Afa here.  In real life I answer to just about anything but most call me Mel.  I'm 30, married and trying for kids.  some day it will happen. 

I live on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Am a certified medical transcriptionist, with Medical office assisting as well.  I cannot find work in my field because Vancouver Island has their own 'health authority' that doesn't recognize my certifications because they were not obtained on the island, as a result I'm between jobs and using KOL as a sanity saver.  It is a great way to fill a small portion of my evenings.  I got hooked in 2006 when coworkers were talking about it and played for three years then got really sick and had to stop.  Rediscovered KOL again back in October and been on just about every day since.

I love this clan.  Everyone is nice and when able they always offer advice when asked. 

Feel free to send me kmail, if I can answer a question I will.  That being said,  I don't know a whole lot about KOL as I have never made it very far but am really enjoying every moment of it this time around.  I love the quirky messages for each adventure, fits in with my personality perfectly.  I guess this time around I'm just having fun 'farming' (at least I think that's what you could call it) and just gradually making it through all of the quests.  I'm in no rush to ascend but will eventually and look forward to the new adventures and redoing a few of the others that don't change.

I don't collect anything really...just one of every piece of equipment that I get, the rest of everything I get from my adventures (other than food and booze) ends up in the clan stash.

Hope everyone enjoys this clan as much as I do.

Ciao for now

My real name is Lance  I live in Eastern Canada,  have been an avid on line gamer since dialling up a BBS was cool to play your turns on Legends of the Red Dragon
I am 48, I spent 15 years in the Canadian navy before retiring and taking on a job as a power engineer, I have a dugout full of kids and a penalty box full of grandkids.

I started KoL about 2 years ago,  but didn't get in to it and not much past lvl 5,  however i just rediscovered it and am hooked.

I look forward to adventuring and hanging out with you all, from what I have read and what I have seen so far, Old CW clan is a perfect fit for me

Hello! Enora Li is my alt account on KoL. I was driving myself insane during a KoLHS run, and started a new account so I could do whatever I wanted to. :) I'm very excited to finally be in a clan with active and informative people, and I appreciate the welcome in chat, too!

IRL, I am 32 (33 this year, woohoo!) and live in TX. I play some games on my xbox, but nothing on the computer (aside from Sims 2, which most people don't consider gaming). I love reading, and will pick up almost anything from manga to romance to horror. I drag my sister to anime cons when we have time, but the birth of my niece has thrown us off track. She isn't old enough for us to take out, yet. I... don't really know what else to say. If you have any questions, send me a kmail, or a PM on the forums. I check KoL dailyish, so that would probablly be your best bet. I wish everyone all the best in the new year!

I'm a 60 year old married father (of 2) and grandfather (of 4).  I've worked as a technical writer for about 25 years and love woodworking, DIY projects, reading, and web surfing.  I have a workshop, and do a lot of furniture repair and refinishing, mostly of things that other people throw out.  I first started playing back before there were even ascensions, and that ID was eventually deleted for non activity.  I joined again with IDs similar to what I have now, but stopped again for a few years and gave up those IDs.  I've been playing now for about 5 years.  I was attracted to this clan because I'm something of an old fart (not saying anyone else here is, though).

Howdy all, I'm like pretty much everyone here it seems. I played way back in highschool and I've recently started picking it back up again. I'm a 27 year old who lives in the midwest with a boring office job. KoL isn't blocked on the work servers though, which is actually what got me back into the game.

Hi, I'm Kate, and I turned 45 last week. I'm a software engineer who has gone back to university to do post grad work in Bioinformatics, since genetics was always my first love before I was seduced by coding. I play the cello. I love hiking and cats. And I've just got engaged to someone adorable who has no interest in games whatsoever (beyond Go).

I'm mostly new to KoL. I played for a couple of weeks a few years back and ascended exactly once, but for whatever reason I'm much more immersed in it this time. Sorry if I'm quiet on chat; I'm kinda shy until I get to know people, which I'm doing slowly, at least the people who play at the same time I do (mostly evenings NZST). Many of the conversations go over my head, but I'm learning a lot from them. Thanks, clannies!

Just wanted to stop in and say Hi. 

I have started playing in June of 2016 and have recently joined Old CW.  I may ask questions on the in-game chat, and may post here from time to time, but  my time is limited with household duties (i.e. driving kids everywhere...).  I have 4 accounts (started when I thought you could only have 40 adv per day, and I loved the game so much then I made 3 more) and am always finding something new.  Still love the game!

I think it was late when I was choosing my names.  I don't remember why...

Thank you for letting me join the clan, and I will try to be as helpful as possible.

Dealing with a little culture shock here.

I stumbled on KOL as a bored temp receptionist in 2007. After accepting a job that had actual work for me, abandoned that account and forgot about KOL until recently. Spent an ungodly number of turns my first new run until someone smart suggested that I get out of the sea, join a clan, and perm a lot of skills before going deep. Joining an older crowd like you lot sounded perfect after years in a dorm full of kids.

Really, really good to meet you lot.

I've actually been playing KoL fairly consistently since 2008, except for a hiatus of about 4 months in early 2016. Just joined this clan after realizing that my last clan had gradually withered away over the years (I was the only one who had played since last September, and only one other player had played since 2015.) Recently got an account to edit the KolWiki too, though so far I've only used it to mention pop culture or other real-world references.

I'm a forty-something London-based lady. I have one seven-year-old son and a husband who works for a digital content agency. (He finds my obsession with KOL charmingly old-school.)  Before my brain atrophied under piles of laundry, I was a researcher for parliament and now I play the guitar to try to lay down new neural pathways and because I love music. I discovered the game when it was mentioned on the They Might be Giants wiki and found it to so up my street it's parked in my driveway, honking its horn. Chatroom has been a bit quiet so far. Where is everyone?

Don't be shy. Don't be terrified.

Hi, my name's Chad. I'm 37, live in California and have been in the Air Force for just over 18 years. I started playing back in '06 after reading an article about a murderer.

I remember selling a Mr. A for $5M when that was a premium price, I remember selling a drink to a clan member that included a tiny plastic sword for a little over $5k thinking I had just hit the lottery. I won out on the Mr. A at the time and absolutely lost out on the TPS both then and now.

I've popped in and out of the game at random throughout the years, not keeping up like I should but I keep forgetting that I like this game.

About to turn thirty-eleven, engineer, New Englander transplanted to the midwest, two kids who also had accounts back in the long-ago times, maybe around 2006-7? and who are now doing things like "going to college" and "driving my truck." (Yikes.)

I'm a huge Star Wars geek, enjoy most pop culture, sci-fi/fantasy stuff, except Dr. Who. I'm sorry, I've tried multiple times, and just can't get into it.

I started playing KoL in 2008, lost interest after about a year and took a six-year break. I re-discovered the game around September 2016, only to find there was no one left in my old clan. I'm so happy I've fouind Old CWs, as the people here are just fantastic! I normally play from work, so will be hanging out in chat usually in the late mornings, east coast U.S. time. Feel free to say hi!

Post by: Dylea the Metal Weaver on October 11, 2017, 05:17:39 pm
Who am I?  :D

Hmm, let's see. Long story short:

My name is a combination of part of my first name stuck on to my middle name & I really do answer to "Dylea". I'm not positive where my head was at when I made my KoL name, but the "Metal Weaver" is a reference to one of my hobbies: making maille (or chain mail, if you prefer) jewelry and what-nots. I've been on KoL quite a while, but had to take a break for a while due to offline issues.

I have red hair, green eyes, am almost painfully shy, have a hot temper (but usually get over it quickly), can hold a grudge on occasion, I haven't danced on anyone's grave yet (but could make an exception to that if I wasn't a couple thousand miles away from my ex-husband's <evil smirk>), I am a couple years younger than dirt, owned by 3 cats, and I'm co-caregiver for my father-- which means despite my age, I live with my parents.

I'm addicted to books (my bedroom looks sorta like the public library with a cot & a tv, as I have book cases on 3 & a half of the 4 walls-- we won't mention the bookcases in the hallways or other rooms.  ;D ).  I love orchids and have a small collection growing in the house.

Yes, that was the short version. Trust me, I'm keeping this brief, but I tend to ramble a bit. Or more than a bit. Or... nevermind.

So, hello and nice to meet you all (eventually, maybe)!

Post by: Jenner on October 19, 2017, 01:51:59 pm
Hi everyone!  I'm Jenner!

I got into KoL a LONG time ago (like 2008), and played it solid for a couple years.  I was even a member of this clan back then and power-raiding Hobopolis with the crew in the Tautology side-clan. Well, I guess I got bored or distracted or some fancier, flashier game caught my attention because I disappeared for 6 years.  Well, West of Loathing hit Steam, and I got a bit homesick and returned.   

It's been rough!  KoL is a complex game, and a LOT changed since I last played.   But, I'm studying up, learning the new tricks, and hope to be back into the swing of things soon! 

Outside the game I'm 43 and married.  My wife loves some of the jokes in the game that I show her but not enough to play it herself.  I'm an avid gamer and have been playing since the Atari 2600 and Commodore 64 era.  Currently I'm a big fan of Elite Dangerous, Warframe, Overwatch, anything released by Tell-Tale Games (amazing stories in them), and Minecraft which is another game I take frequent breaks on, but keep coming back to.  I'm a huge supporter and follower of the Star Citizen project.  I loved the book "Ready Player One" and can't wait to see it on the big-screen.  For shows, huge fan of The Orville, Mr. Robot, most any crime and detective show, South Park, and just recently (finally) started watching Game of Thrones.

By day, I'm the network administrator at a company I've been at for 11 years now where I was originally hired in as an engineer (what I have my degree in).  By night, when I'm not gaming, watching TV and hanging with my wife, I'm hanging with my main gaming group, Oddysee (www.oddysee.org), or going out to La Mesa, Kochi Sushi, Mr. Lee's or one of the other restaurants where they all know me by name, or hanging out and drinking one of the 1000's of beers at "Red, Wine & Brew" with friends who I've known since childhood.

This is the first computer game I've played in a decade and it's a blast.

I first started playing back when you had to log in every day. I've been playing on and off ever since, but only ascended once. This time around I'm having fun learning about the mechanics of the game and love it more than ever.

I'm glad it took me this long to find the clan; if I'd joined at a earlier point I probably wouldn't have been around much at all.

Hello, every one!

I'm a 40-year-old Norwegian office worker, married with one daughter. Played KoL on a daily basis back in 2012-13. Came back to see that the more it has changed, the more it stays the same. My old clan and associates seem to have disappeared, however. Old CW's seem like a great, friendly clan, and I'm happy to be a part of it.

Now I'm trying to rush through some ascensions to catch up on the essential permed skills. Mostly do cc_ascend since I don't have much time to carve out a beautiful manual ascension.

Hey folks!

I was a member of the clan years ago before I stopped playing for a while. Picking it back up, looking forward to being a part of it again. (Already sent my app, just waiting for the approval.)

44 year old, living in Idaho. My main has done a number of HC ascensions, including enough Oxy HC runs to have the full plexiglass set. I find I don't like casual runs much, I really prefer the challenge of HC more, though I mainly do straight HC with no restrictions (except Standard since that's a thing now, I guess?).

My name is Mauricio, I'm 30 and I'm from Paraguay, South America(Sorry for my bad English). I used to play KOL a lot back in 2005-06, and I'm returning after a long time. I kinda feel lost with so many new things in the game, I feel like a newbie again.  I hope to contribute to the clan in any way that I can!

Hello! I am Ben (bennkenn). I played KOL a while ago and started again. I didn't know what I was doing then and I don't really know what I'm doing now. I like the game but I just do stuff randomly.

SandCastor here.
I play as Zig For Great Justice and as Zag For Great Villainy.
Thanks to a nice Mr.A purchase, Zig has been around since near the beginning, but fell asleep for about 13 years. Having done only a couple ascensions before falling asleep, and finding everything new and weird, djve has titled me the RetroNoob. I like it.
Anyways, done some ascensions, down to a 6-day best (because I have very few IOTMs), starting on a few hardcores and challenges. Good times.
Can't wait until full forum priviliges so I can post contest entries. Zig want win free stuff.

IRL, I'm Mike from Canada, 37 ("I'm 37, I'm not old"). My eldest kids are 13 years old (partly why i wasn't playing KOL). Here for a good time.
And my 70 yr old Mom loves when i read her adventure descriptions, especially from Community Service.

My name is Shelly Giron, my clan name is maestraguera.  I have been playing on and off, forever.  I am a retired teacher, mother of 4, step-mom of 2, grandmother of 7.  I currently work as the Jewelry Lead at Macy's in Grand Rapids, Michigan--it's something to do.  I have 2 chihuahuas and a wonderful husband who is a salsa musician.  I am usually on the game just to do the silly challenges and earn meat.  I donate everything I get to the clan.  I am sure I could do a much better job but I haven't learned any of the savvy for meat farming or even how to do the different ascensions.  I am still confused about the changes in making food and drinks!

Hi, I'm Carl.

I'm 25 as for this year, and I'm a streamer -- I'm probably the only streamer whose playing the game on Twitch as a breakfast before other games.

I love video games, as they were the only outlet and refuge I had from bullying in my life, including from my own family.

I used to play KoL a lot, but then stopped, and recently came back to it.
I'm looking forward to being a bigger part of the community here!

I'm Ouch!
(Some call me Jon)
In game I'm EuphoricLust and evilive about equally.  I'm a fire performer, state worker, sometimes glassblower and mini painter.  When you hear this call may be monitored for quality assurance?  I may be listening in while playing KoL.   I contact juggle and spin staff whenever I can and think fire is delicious.

Hi!  I'm your friendly neighborhood McLesbian.  I'm from the midwest (sort of, I still maintain I am too far east to be considered midwest but I don't get to make those decisions) and I do programming for 3 group homes for adults with disabilities.  I have 2 cats and I absolutely love naming my familiars really really stupid things (like the macaroni duck named Quackers and Cheese or my reassembled blackbird Paul McCartney).  I've played this on and off for years.  My first go around was in 2006 or so, and I come back every year or so and do another round.  I'm about to ascend for the 11th time.  I'm not really sure how to do the clan thing, but here I am.

Hi! Please don't judge me too hard, I made this account as a teenager. I'm about 30, New England (USA), and I love this game despite having spent long periods without playing. I'm active in chat, and I very much appreciate how nice and how helpful this clan is!

I have an alt called Mairon that I use when I'm in HC, etc on main.

Hi! I will reintroduce myself as I am asking to have a new (old) character added to the clan. My name is Kathleen and I am a long time member of the clan named Carnot. I am a graduate student teaching mathematics classes, a metalsmith, and a cat whisperer. I started back replaying KOL when I started working and schooling from home and was pleased to see that I am still in the clan!!!!!!! Thank you so much for that!!!!!!

I have exciting KOL news (well, exciting to me). I finally got up the courage to ask for my original character from almost the beginning of the game (with a custom avatar, swoon! Attached to a school email account that I lost suddenly so I thought she was gone forever...). Her name is Teto and please let her in! Carnot is busy trying to get her speed down doing hardcore runs right now, so Teto is going to be a more leisurely character so I can try out all of the new features and special challenge paths that I have missed during my time away!

Greetings & Salutations,

I am Nithrogg or at least the persona that I use for RPGs and online games.  Greatly enjoying myself with KoL, nice too see a game that does not take itself so seriously.

Hi All, I'm new to the clan but not KOL but it has been many years since I played -- long enough that I couldn't remember my old account!
I'm a mom to a 3 yr old son, married and live with Metastatic Breast Cancer so I'm going to be as active in the game and the boards as I can but please understand if at times I disappear for a few days if I feel crummy.

Besides KOL, I like playing other games -- Baldur's Gate, Dragon Age Series, Batman games, etc, write fanfiction and just try to enjoy life. I look forward to getting to know you all!!

Again, I'm terrible at forums, etc. So terrible, in fact, that I'm posting despite the warning that I should start a new thread.

My name is Red. I live in the Midwest United States, and make my way as a life coach, because those who cannot do, teach. I played KoL a very long time ago, and I think I just remembered my name, RedTheTerrible. I think I may try to get back into it. Thank you for accepting me into the clan, and hopefully I posted in the right place.

Hey gang -
I had a KoL account back in the very beginning and had a great time with it.
Forgot all about it and now years later stumbled upon West of Loathing and thought I would check to see if KoL still exists.
wait for it.....
still waiting....
For all those who were wondering it still does.  And I think my old account still does too because my old email address is still linked, but I have no idea how to access it, so I created a new account and..
now I'm HERE!
So thanks for having me.

I used to play KoL back in 2005, but so much has changed, and my memory is poor, so it feels like a brand new game.

I'm 37 and from the USA. I look forward to meeting everyone.

I am a long-time gamer, first-time KoL-er. I'm having a great time and may be essaying the basement soon, although I feel apprehensive about making an error both in chat and in the basement itself. Thanks for having me.

Hello! I'm HQD. I used to play KoL back in '09-'12. Coming back to it a decade later is really fun. So much has changed, yet in some ways it's all still the same. I was a member of Cir Senam's, if any of you remember that clan. I would stay up very, very late into the evening to clear out hobopolis with friends I'd met in the clan, and those are some of my favorite gaming memories. If anyone spots Maemian, let me know!

Aside from KoL, I'm a video and board gamer, a writer, and a bridge player. I love sci-fi, fantasy, and adventure. I love my family. I got engaged this winter and am so, so excited to start my own family with my wife-to-be.

In-game, my main goal is to get back to killing hobopolis bosses. It's a shame you can only get 10 drops per fight now, but it's still the best way to contribute to the clan I think--getting 1000% item drop wasn't hard back in the day, and I'm sure it's only gotten easier now, and with most drops being worth 50k+ on the market, no one should have a problem (in my opinion) donating 200,000 meat per boss they kill, which means hobopolis pays for itself. Anyway, it's what I loved back then and I want to get back in shape for it.

To that end, I'm gonna churn through a few ascensions to get some basic skills going, things like Ambi Funkslinging, Torso Awaregness, Familiar-buffing skills, the +item% passives, etc., and then hope to roll through hobopolis a few times. We'll see after that. Maybe speed runs, maybe more ascending, maybe I'll find something new to do!

Gonna get my six bad moon runs out of the way right away, starting with black cat disco bandit. I'm excited for them :) Kudos to Moondog for the fortuitously-timed contest!

Thanks to everyone for the warm, warm welcome I've received in clan chat, particularly from Zoloft, Chunky, and KingDave. Glad to be a part of OldCW's. Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Well met, clan! It's good to be here! Im just 3 days into KoL and loving it.  What a strange and perfect place for me to be!

My name is Raquel Gutierrez and I'm a 39 years-old Spanish-Brazilian professor. RPGs are a big part of my life since I was the first girl to ever DM in my old backwater town. I am always curious and eager to learn at everything I do, from teaching arts to playing sports and researching for my doctorate.

I also take care of my elderly parents and enjoy a quiet awesome game while keeping an eye on them. KoL is helping me to fight a pandemic depression, so being here with you is very special to me.

I hope to learn the ropes fast and contribute to the clan as much as I can. I will be here every day, even if just for a few minutes. If you have any task for this newbie, just point me in the right direction and I will help! I hope to adventure with you all very soon.

Warm greetings from a lovely Brazilian beachside,

Raquel "Quelzie" Gutierrez

Hey there! Bossks Boss, here.

Been around the block in KOL for YEARS... this is my resurrection account... I killed off my old accounts long ago. Glad to be back. I am mainly a hardcore guy at the moment and looking to participate for some sweet basement loot.

I am Hawkin, I'm a (not quite) 35 year old office drone who is an avid gamer in her off time. I play PC, board games, and tabletop RPGs (though I haven't had a group for that in a while). My wife also enjoys the latter two. Our daughter also likes board games, and is getting to the age where we are looking to introduce her to one of the age-appropriate tabletop games, too.
I played KoL for years during and after college, dropped out around 2013 for various reasons, and got back into it in January of this year. Sadly, my old clan seems to have mostly gone inactive, and I was in need of a new (and active) clan.

I'm Malodious aka Cade, a retired engineer living in Puerto Rico. I dabble with KOL sometimes - was a member of Guardians of the Six Pack for several years, though they have atrophied to a barely tangible husk. KOL is ALL about people, imho. I hope to meet many of you in chat.
