howdy! i've been looking for a guild/cabal/group to join ever since i started playing "the secret world" and this seemed like it might be the right one. i've also pre-purchased "guild wars 2" and so would like to think i'm killing 2 birds with one stone by joining tog. i'm 42 and married and living in new orleans, la, usa (gmt -6 for you eu/aus folks) and have no kids... yet. i've been a gamer since my atari 2600 days playing "adventure". "ultima iv" on my atari 800 was the definite point of no return for me and i've had a gaming console or pc or both ever since. i'm hoping to join a group of fun, like-minded people to enjoy tsw and gw2 with. i'm not against using voice-chat but often can not do so (being self-employed i can often play while at work but voice chat is right out during those times) so i'm hoping there's a fair number of text chat folks that will be around to talk to. i love mmo's and solo more often than not, but usually only from my dislike of having to spam 'looking for group" channels and getting stuck with people who are hardcore min/max-ers and miss the forest for the trees while playing. i'm not much a pvp'er and haven't raided much but am willing to do both if i can get in with a group that doesn't mind doing some hand-holding while i get up to speed. let me know if there's anything else you need from me!
