    Hi all. I am over 25 years of age [30 years over actually :wink: ]. I've read the AUP and the FAQ and I'm fine with both.

    I've just left Star Wars Galaxies and will be playing Everquest 2 when it's released. I'm married with 3 kids and at least 2 of them will also be playing Everquest 2. I'm a professor at the University of Toronto; I emigrated to Canada from the United States about 5 1/2 years ago. I'm a casual gamer with roughly 20 hours per week in game, mostly concentrated on the weekends.

    I started playing rpgs in 1978 with Dungeons & Dragons. I played a few other fantasy PnP games along the way until the early 90's when I switched to playing Shadowrun. Shortly after moving to Canada I started playing mmorpgs; first Asheron's Call, then Everquest, then Anarchy Online. I made a second visit to both Asheron's Call and Everquest before playing Star Wars Galaxies. I was a beta tester for Asheron's Call 2, Star Wars Galaxies, and the Saga of Ryzom.

    I'm hoping to find a nice guild for Everquest 2.

    G'Day mate, welcome aboard. Since you have met all the requirements I'm sure one of the Admin types will be along shortly (yeah right, they're all flat on their backs pumping out ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz) to TOGgerise your membership.
    A Div Captain will no doubt drop by eventually with an invite.
    I'm sure you'll enjoy yourself here, they're a great bunch. :D

    G'day mate. Welcome to TOG.

    As Mayday said, the admin weenies are still punching out zeds (was a pretty intense game of shuffle board last night and matron had the night off, so they played up merry hell until 3 hours past beddy byes, 9PM :wink: ).

    When matron gets in this morning and eventually gets them to rise, feed, bathe, dress and medicate, they'll amble about in a stupor for a while, then eventually wave the admin weenie wand of wonder over you to grant you access to the private forums.

    Check out the stickies in each of the forums, as they'll give you some info on who to contact, what voice comms software to use, and other useful stuff that will enhance your gaming experience.

    If your kids are over 25, why not get them to join as well? TOG is more like a family than a clan, so they'll feel right at home.

    Thanks for the welcome Easy_Beat, I can tell already that I'm gonna like this place :) Alas, number 1 son is only 18 so he doesn't qualify.

    Hiya MotherFlanker. I'd be pure cannon-fodder in a FPS environment. My fingers weren't nimble when I was young and they've only gotten more sluggish over time :lol:
