I'll start! Hi, I'm Justin, @hippopoctopus, and Llando Madalas. I'm playing a sorcerer who doubles as a Pokemon master, and enjoys working with wood and brewing potions. My personal quest is to stop brewing coffee for a living, and start doing something that makes a difference in people's lives, like designing board games. I own a fatass calico cat named Shanaynay, and a super handsome--albeit incredibly mouthy--Siamese named Little Thailand. I am a functioning alcoholic.
So far, I've really enjoyed Sheogorath's "play" that he forces you to act out. The pages that you find are fantastic reading.
My horse is named Sir Mix Alit.
I'm from Michigan, USA, and I enjoy playing and designing board games, graphic design, poetry, coffee, tea, sharks, cats, cats riding sharks, sharks riding cats, LEGO, Brikwars, Twilight Imperium, Firefly, and craft beer.

Hiya I'm Jordan/@exclarogatif. My main's name is Fancy Feast the dragon knight. I'm specializing in provisioning (for the skooma) and clothing. While this one is not super into roleplaying or anything, Fancy Feast is kinda envisioned as a former khajiit slave once used as a personal bodyguard for a Telvanni mage. This one tends to be a bit racist/full-of-absolute-hatred towards dunmer, but with an undying love for the Ebonheart region.
I got pretty into collecting the A Dance in Fire series in Oblivion. The Locked Room is a favorite too.
My horse's name is Beef Supreme, like the super-rad guy from Idiocracy.
Anyhoo, I'm also from Michigan and here's a list of things I like:
Elder Scrolls (obvs), rpgs in general (especially Fallout), reading, making music playlists to listen to while reading or playing rpgs, David Bowie in 'Labyrinth', animals, trees, colors, shapes, and eating pizza.
My contributions to real life society mostly involve giving people coffee and/or diabetes. I have two cats- Gilligan the fat orange cow and Artemis the tiny maine coon/maybe siberian.

Okay, my name is Che, but so many people call me Brio that I have actually introduced myself to clients as such. I'll answer to either one.

I have a Dunmer DK as my main, flame staff, undecided as far as crafting goes. Waiting to see what's needed around here. My alt is a Bosmer bow sorc, at level 9.

My degree is in lit (haha, who would have thought?), which is why I work in the hotel business.

I have four cats, all rescues, all spoiled.

Well that skooma addiction seems to be going around.

I love the book Circus of Cheerful Slaughter.

My horse is named Bucephalus. I guess that's pretty ordinary. Maybe I should change it to something more Dunmer-esque.

I'm in Atlanta.

Aside from being totally, joyfully addicted to ESO and skooma, I also enjoy reading (duh), writing, tabletop gaming (WH40K), pen and paper rpgs. I'm a history fanatic. I love cats. I also like good food, good beer, and not wearing pants.

Howdy! My name is John/@profxmas. After taking a heretic Bosmer Templar to lvl 24 I've decided to finally give up on cannibalism and play an Argonian Nightblade named Pickles Mcsmootheskin instead. His broodmates were murdered by a hist sap addled Altmer alchemist and he died from OD before he could finish off Pickles. Pickles hates elves with a passion for their abuse of the hist and for the enslavement of his race, and by Sithis he'll do anything in his power to tip the scales (get it guys? see what I did there?)in Ebonheart's favor.

I myself am a barista of 4 years at Starbucks with a passion for games and I'd like to go back to school for game design and get myself out of Michigan for realziez to the max. Ummm... let me see, oh and I guess I like a good beer and cartoons. Jordan and I live together with our cat children and that's about all I can think of for now.

Greetings!
You can call me Aubrey, though technically it is not my "real" name but I hope it was. In game @FoyaBeninax.
Got a Healing Templar in AD, a Tank Sorcerer in EP and a DPS Night Blade in DC but mainly focusing on the first and somehow the second one and I think I am cursed by Lucien so I never managed to play the NB well. Doing ALL CRAFTINGs and yes my bank and bag are the deepest abyss of the Oblivion.
The best book in ESO? Of course the Circus of Cheerful Slaughter!
I don't have a self just my game characters =.=Maybe I will retrieve myself sometime later then I will talk about it I promise.
PS: I really need a patient friend or instructor or whatever badass in TES lore to teach me everything about this insane world!!!

Edit: One of the life quest is to learn writing fanfics in English. I have a whole bunch of cool ideas but why people are speaking different languages damn it!

Do we have upvotes on this forum? Anyone who likes Circus of Cheerful Slaughter gets an upvote from me.

Also, putting in a request for some Mannimarco fan-fic.

http://epbotmc.forumotion.com/t2-introduce-your-bad-self

Hi! My RL name is Rebecca/@laffarsmith. I've got two characters in-game:
Elowyn Darken-Blaze = A Dunmer Nightblade Shadow (duel-wielding daggers, medium armour) with a hobby in Enchanting.
Pick = An Argonian Templar specialising in Restoration (ice staff, light armour) with a penchant for harvesting and fishing and makes his money in alchemy and provisioning.

I don't know that I'd claim a "quest" in real life other than to raise two happy, healthy children to adulthood with similar game-loving, book-loving, cat-loving passions as their mother. My oldest is about to turn 14 and is studying Agriculture in high school because she's wanted to own and operate a hobby farm since she was 4. My youngest just turned 10 and is homeschooled because school and dyslexia were killing his love of books (and life). Thankfully since we started homeschooling last year his passion for both have returned.

I sadly no longer own a cat as I'm living with evil allergy-claiming family. I was able to give my beautiful tortoiseshell kitten, Polly, to a friend and she's being spoilt rotten. Before her I had my precious black familiar, Phantom. My dog, a west highland white terrier cross toy poodle is hypoallergenic so was permitted to live with me. He often acts very much like a cat in the way he insists on always sitting on me or as close to me as possible, but is very uncatlike in his obvious affection, loyalty, and submissiveness.

Crippling social disorders! Cool! I got a few of those. I'm a teetotaler, so among some of the crew here I'm guessing that's a social disorder. ;-) I'm also diagnosed with social and generalized anxiety disorders and bipolar. Joy huh? Yay for online gaming as a semi-healthy outlet, but if I'm shunning potential group opportunities feel free to bop me on the side of the head and remind me that MMO's are for people-people.

I sadly do not have a horse. But when I get one I will most likely let my daughter name him because she is far better at naming things than I am.

I hail from the deep downunder, Australia, and am a firm promoter of all ideas to move here.

Video gaming is a hobby right? Sometimes I think it's a lifestyle. Books too. Cats of course. And I dabble in writing although I'm supposed to think of that more a profession than a hobby. Then again, if you weigh up the hours I've spent playing ESO rather than writing this week I really wish I were paid for my gaming instead. On that note, I've started dabbling in designing video games too.

As a former homeschooled child myself, I have to say that I commend the immense effort you're putting into your raising your children! I actually turned out pretty decent and totally socially adjusted. *wink wink nudge nudge*
The beauty of this MMO in particular is being able to be a totally solo lone wolf badass, and still be able to do nearly all the content without interacting with anyone, but I'm certainly glad you chose us as the assholes that you interact with when you do, you crazy teetotalitarian you!
What sort of games do you want to try to create? And what sort of writing do you do? I myself write poetry and fiction.

You know what, I'm just going to add a section to Wabbajack for anything artistic people want to share, seeing as writing seems to be a common theme among the members of this group.

Thanks. I think the greatest reward is that he's happy again. It's a struggle to get him to want to do anything learning-like, but he's happy and we get to spend lots of time together.

I am guilty of doing something stupid that only an addict would do last night. I bought a second account, for my daughter, because I wanted to use the Ring of Mara on someone I knew would end up gaming when I do. Here I was a few days ago thinking it was pricey just for one account and man, why do you have to pay for the game twice to have two subscriptions?!?! WTF?!? But my bank account will survive it, just, and in six or so hours when the download/install is finished, I'll have some regular party company. Plus, I mean it's the first day of school holidays, and it's her birthday in a few weeks. *tries to think of other ways to justify the expense*

RPGs and Sims primarily because those are the games I love playing. At the moment I'm learning while building a 2D RPG platform game based on a novel I wrote. I'm doing most of the graphic design myself but have also started tutoring my daughters best-friend in graphic design. She's a budding artist who seems pretty keen to learn and if I train her up I can demand free graphics for life, right? ;-) These days I call myself a science fiction and fantasy novelist although games like ESO are holding my novels hostage. ;-) For the past 14 years (up until I started homeschooling) I was a freelance copywriter, editor, and Web technician/designer. All boring stuff, I'd much rather be writing fiction, when I'm not playing games that is.

You'll have to post or link some of your poetry. I'd love to read it.

What's crackin' all, I'm Izzy... also known as lzzy, what with the lowercase L and confusion with the rambling and so on. I play an indecisive templar who knits in between bathing in the blood of her enemies.

My quest in life is to become a drawer of things. What those things might be remains to be seen, but I'm rather liking the thought of storyboarding and animation. Needless to say, I've never animated anything ever. Hard mode initiated.

My horse's name is Dinner. This amuses me greatly, and is in no way a form of social commentary.

My favorite book in ESO is The Brave Little Scrib. Its lesson is a punctual one: drowning is bad, especially if you're a Scrib. Thanks to this life changing tale, I don't plan on doing or being either of these things.

Hello, everyone!

My name is Michael and I play (mostly) as Mykalvald, a fledgling Nord Dragonknight (lvl 9, atm) who is very much in lesbians with fire.
I have been crafting as much of everything that I can right now but I am slowly leaning towards Enchantmenting (I wantz all yur runestonez).
I do not own any cats. Instead, I have two small less-than-cat furballs (a bichon frise and a bichon/poodle mix) names Maximus and Puck (Puck is my avatar).
If theatre is still a social disorder, then I suffer from it to a very high degree. I try to perform in 4-5 productions/per year at as many theatres as I can (while trying not to lose my day job).
Narrowing down a favorite book in the game so far is too hard for me right now. I'll get back to you on that one.
I do not yet own a horse Sad

Hey all,

I'm the new noob (super redundant) Lae.

I play Dragon Knight and Sorcerer at the moment. I dabble in all the professions except for Alchemy. I mainly try to focus on Blacksmithing and Clothing though.

As for my personal life:
Currently trying to find my path in life. Newly unemployed and looking for options that will actually make me happy.

Sorry, I don't own any cats. So I guess that means more cats for your guys :Dlol
and I'm also a proud member of #teamdog Razz

Social disorders....hmmmm. I prefer talking to people on the internet. Big plus for you guys, not so much for everyday interactions. I'm also kinda "meh" when it comes to creating a conversation, so don't be offended if I'm not too chatty right off the bat. I literally don't know what to say.

My favorite book in ESO.... That would have to be anything by Cadwell that I've found in Coldharbor.

My horses: Tiger and Muffin.

I'm in the good ol' Midwest of the U.S. of A. lol Indiana to be more specific Very Happy

Random facts (speed round):
Favorite animal: Tiger
Favorite color: Purple
Favorite food: Nearly EVERYTHING (No tuna or eggs please lol)
Favorite thing to put on everything: Nutella

Glad to have you Lae! Nutella is fantastic! Also, fun fact, I went to school in Terra Haute, Indiana for a time! That place smelled like Satan's taint.
