Married to Chel, and father to two children called Annabel and Benjamin Definitely-casual MagicTheGathering player, although he'd consider the tournament scene were it not that it would cost him lots of money, and he's not actually all that good really.
While at university, played in a couple of Exalted campaings, greatly enjoying them both.
In the second (StuartFraser's AllsFairInLoveAndWar), he played a serene but deadly Chosen of Battles, specialising in Archery. Proved to be a fairly decent all-rounder, with some serious ranged killing ability, and not too bad at the whole fate-weaving stuff. The HeathRobinson? device for delivering his bow to him at an appropriate moment (as per DestinyKnittingEntanglement?) was just an added silliness.
Idly considered a conjuction of the two, in /ExaltedMtG.
Is largely responsible for DuctTapeAndTheForce, which gives him a warm glow every time he sees that it's spawned over 50 rounds. He is very pleased to have finally won a round (with the help of Chel). Enjoys talking about himself in the ThirdPerson?. Has a [public key], which has been published on hkp://subkeys.pgp.net, under "Christopher Howlett". Is not entirely sure where his private keychain is, although he does still have the revocation certificate. [Egress counter] Following Christmas, there are a number of games I didn't get, and would be interested in buying a subset of with some of the money I did. Best prices found so far:
Dominion: £30.20 from Amazon Mario Kart: £25 (via google shopping) Okami: £13.95 (startupmedia - out of stock. Otherwise £24) Zelda: £20 used Little Kings Story: £10 from LOVEfilm LostWinds?: £7 (WiiWare?)
Probably worth trying eBay. All prices below are Used. Mario Kart: ~£20 used inc. P&P Okami: ~£15 (but not many) Zelda: ~£17 (seller thegameshak, among others) (StarWars the Force Unleashed: ~£15)
If you get to spend on Wii games again, try Chocobo's Dungeon, it's addictive ^^ --MoonShadow
I've now bought Dominion, and Zelda: TP. The latter I picked up for £12.50, meaning I have a little more to spend that expected. I could, for instance, now definitely afford Little Kings Story instead of LostWinds?. Does anyone have any opinion on which is better?
I gather you have your Android phone now. Do you play Words with Friends (Scrabble) or Scramble with Friends (Boggle) at all? Would be up for a game if so. Username woodpijn. --Rachael
You gather correctly. I don't currently play either of those, but I certainly could. I'll grab Words first, I think.
There's also [Draw Something], which is Pictionary on Android, which I could pick up if you or anyone is interested.
