Who's new and has two thumbs? This guy
Hi all, just stopping in to quickly introduce myself to the TOG community.
I'm a nearly-graduated doctoral student in clinical psychology who sometimes spends a bit more time gaming than on reading or research than is probably healthy for my career. I honestly don't remember the first video game or system I played, although there were healthy sprinklings of C64, Atari, and Intellivision in there at some point. I also grew up in a variety of PnP systems, including the ubiquitous D&D/AD&D along with Mechwarrior, Shadowrun, Vampire the Masquerade, and a few others.
Currently, I spend most of my time in Lord of the Rings Online, as I unfortunately don't really have many opportunities to play much else. A group of friends and I were fairly fervent WoW-heads for a couple years until that got to be more like a job than any of us was comfortable with, so since then, it's been pretty casual. I tend to log on in the early mornings before work (between 5a and 7a Central Time), and throughout the day on weekends.
Very nice to meet everyone, and if you've made it this far through the post, I thank you for your time, patience, and interest.
