Bit about me: I am Skyfoxy (or some kind of variation), I live in Adelaide, Aus, I'm 35(almost) and am married with a daughter.
Currently working full time and playing as many games as I can inbetween work and what we like to call the "routine". I'm sure the parents in this forum know what I'm talking about
I started gaming on a Vic20 so far back that I can't even remember the names of the games I used to play. Migrated to a Commodore 64 where I loved the hell out of Wizball (possibly my favourite game ever!) and all of the forgotten realms RPG's especially the Curse of the Azure Bonds series, so good!
I moved onto an Amiga 500 (and various others including a CD32 with SX-1) and stayed with that until the very "end" of Commodore and my eventual (kicking and screaming) transition to PC's. Some of my favourite games on the Amiga included the Last Ninja series (played the hell out of those) and Baldur's gate etc.
Currently playing a few games, but mostly concentrating on FFXIV right now, with a bit of Path of Exile on the side.
I'm looking at joining as I hate PUG's and all of my old guilds have mostly been single game guilds that have disbanded when changing games. Looking for something with a mature community of likeminded individuals who don't sweat the small stuff and play to have fun.
That's not to say I don't like hardcore gaming or progression (have been part of a bunch of progression raiding guilds in the past with my favourite being an 8 year stint in DAOC as part of Ascendancy on Mid/Merlin), I certainly look forward to playing the end game of FFXIV and raiding etc with the guild.
Right now I'm taking it easy and enjoying the content, pugging my way through the main story quests, but looking forward to playing with others throughout the guild.
Friends with Kaimahi IRL (we work together) and currently playing an Arcanist (lvl 23) on Behemoth known as Sky Fox.
Look forward to seeing you all in game, cheers.
