In real life, I'm 31 and live in beautiful (inland - sorry, no ocean views) Southern California (in the eastern suburbs of San Diego, specifically). And I'm a history geek and enjoy knowing a bit about just about everything.
I've been playing Gemstone since roughly 1997, when I was introduced to it by my third-year college roomie, the player of the retired warmage Enfar Broheel of House Brigatta. (Greysleeve's mentor.)
Most of my characters bear the last name Streambank, in honor of the city of Riverside, CA, where I went to college.
