Hi!  I am maestraguera (Shelly).  I have been playing this game off and on, forever.  I have been bumped from the clan at least twice due to inactivity...(not mad, I understand!)  I am a cancer survivor and have also had a pretty significant/traumatic surgical history.  3 big ones in the past year.  I mostly meat farm, but I would like to get to understand the game better and do more with it, while still contributing meat to the clan.

I'm an EFL teacher in the Middle East.  I like to think this game keeps me halfway sane.

I'm a 50-something retired schoolteacher who's raising a surly tween, and KOL is my morning pastime. Once I've used up all my turns, I get down to my part-time jobs of editing manuscripts, running a small consult business for authors, and writing my own novels.

And then, with great reluctance, I go and clean the house.

I also ski, read, and bake a lot. Come say Hi in chat!

Hello! I'm just starting out with the game. I work, I go home. So, I hope to try and get somewhere with this game, I've never really gotten too immersed in an MMO, so here's to it!

Hello there. I'm 43 years old and have recently discovered KoL as a hilarious game. I try to stop by at least every other day to spend my adventures and looking around for a clan yours seemed the most suited to me. Would love to you guys.

Greetz,

I'm an ex-5th-gr teacher & game dev (ChipWits, The King of Chicago) who writes scifi (Channel Zilch, Hel's Bet.)

I've got severe brain damage. I can no longer program. I thought that I could no longer play computer games, but recently remembered KoL, which I played 13? years ago.

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

Just about to learn KoLMafia.

Hi, I'm Joyce and I'm a 52yo artist from L.A.

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.

Hi, I'm David, I'm a 36 y/o business analyst from Oregon.

I've been playing KoL for a few months, but I've been playing similar games for most of my life. I'm still learning everything, and am glad to have found a pretty chill clan. I'm usually quiet, but always watching. Always... watching...

Nah, I'm just usually online at work.

Hi all, I'm Mike, 34 years old and living in London, UK. Coming back to the game both after a long absence and as a relative newbie, enjoying being part of the clan in the chat so far and looking forward to digging deeper into the game's less obvious content!

Hello! I'm 28, living in Washington, DC, US. I've been playing KOL very casually off and on for about five years, and like a lot of folks here I'm excited to learn some of the harder-to-reach bits (clan basement, sea).

Good day everyone! I'm a 38-year-old dad of 2 (soon 3) who works in public relations in the capital city of SC. This is a great way to get through slow times and fun to work through every day. I'm back after a long, long time away (old account disappeared). Currently, working to get all the gabardine outfit and do a mask run at some point. If you have a collection you'd like help with, let me know. Will always send a needed buff to you when allowed, currently a TT.

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.

Hi all!

I'm a 36-year-old software manager in Texas, married with two kids (my daughter is 24 days old!). I also run a website for the party game Mafia (aka Werewolf), that's where the username comes from. That's where I found out about KoL originally - I played for a bit back in 2004, before returning on this account a few years ago.

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?).
