I got my start playing around with a VIC-20, the precursor to the Commodore 64 back in the mid 80s. From there I graduated to playing GATO and The Bard's Tale and the AD&D Gold Box games on the family Apple IIe. Now I play mostly World of Tanks (same user name as here), Eve Online, and some Civilization V here and there.
I also played pen and paper games such as AD&D starting with 2nd Edition (the books are kicking around somewhere), Rifts, Star Wars, Paranoia and probably a few more that I have forgotten. It's been probably ten years since I did that.
Finally I used to play tabletop strategy games such as Diplomacy, World in Flames and some other less well known titles. I realize that TOG is for computer gaming, but I'd bet that there are a fair number of PC gamers that also are interested in pre-computer gaming as well.
As time goes on the age gap between myself and the 'average' player seems to grow. Although I am fairly well connected with existing communities for Eve and WoT it would be nice to hang out with a crowd more my age.
See you on the battlefield!

Hey there Arishtat
Glad you found your way here. Sounds like this might be the right fit for a gamer like yourself. If your are interested in getting back into EVE at all then we might have something to keep you occupied.
Now that you're a TOG member you will be able to view our MMORPG TOG EVE Division HERE. All TOG Players who sign up and play EVE usually filter through the EVE Division forum which you will soon be able to view. I'm the current DC so feel free to contact myself in game or on the forum if you have any specific questions. Alternatively post up on the EVE Division forum and you will find no shortage of members willing to say hi and answer any questions.
Visit the TOG Division forum and say hi.
Visit the TOG Power access sticky HERE for access our in game chat channel. This will give you access to an in game chat channel called TOG Power.

New to TOG EVE? Read this!
The TOG EVE Division is very active with the TOG EVE Alliance which has a 200 member strong main corp called TOGOA. In the alliance is TOGRN (TOG Royal Navy) which is our PVP arm and is available to all members when they reach a certain skill level. We also have TOGFW corp with our Faction Warefare and DUST pilots corp. We are also about to launch an Industry corp which you might be interested in also.
We also use TS3 a lot and we have a fairly regular showing on there. It's a great place to chat and get up to speed with everything that goes on.
The activities we get into cover almost all aspects of EVE from Incursions to low sec roams to WH raids so you can be sure there is something to do somewhere..
I'll leave it there so take it easy and hope to see you in space soon.
