Title: Hi
Post by: Caradìlis on January 01, 2018, 12:06:57 PM
Hi everyone... I'm... well, someone, but I'm still trying to find out who that is exactly... Will let you know when I find out (although that might take a while...) I'm not sure if I can contribute a lot to the gaming sector of this page, since the only computer game I've been any good at up to this point has been Skyrim (although I think I'm moderately good at it by this point), but I'll try to learn...  :)
I do a lot of writing in my spare time, mostly along the lines of poetry or fairy tales, with occasional dabbles in other genres... And I have what you might consider a slightly unhealthy obsession with a bunch of things, among which are Shakespeare, Greek mythology, Star Wars, Harry Potter, ASOIAF and Doctor Who and I'm pretty sure those are only half of them...
I've always wanted to be a witch, so I also do a lot of dabbling in healing potions, herbs and traditional medicine and I've done some readings on poisons, but I'm not planning on ever using those, I just feel that knowledge is always something that it is better to have than to lack and you never know what you might use it for...
Hope you all have a great start into 2018... :)

Welcome to Exilian! I hope you enjoy being here.

I wouldn't worry about your gaming knowledge: the last computer game I played at any length was Civilisation (the very first one!), more years ago than I now care to remember.

Your "bunch of things" all sound good to me, and I'm sure there are others here at least equally interested in them. Please feel free to look through the fandom (https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=181.0) area, and add your thoughts.

Hi, welcome :)

If you're looking to get into gaming I can likely help.

I am always ready to learn (albeit probably slowly...) :)

Many welcomes :)

The writing section (which I believe you've found) is also a good place to post stuff: https://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?board=64.0

Also, let me know if there are any issues you're having with formatting posts or using the post writing/editing interface - I'm keen to know what else needs tutorials writing about it etc :)

Yes, I might have had a little help with that (a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure it happened in this galaxy...) ;D

Okay, will let you know if the formatting thing does not take a liking to me (couldn't blame it, I would hate me too, if I were a formatting system, since I basically usually go aroung ignoring those, but I will try being polite to this one and say hi to it from time to time...) :)
