    I have read the Acceptable Use Policy and all the FAQs, and agree with the conditions. I meet the age requirement by a very large margin, nearing the half-century mark. I only just started playind WOW, and chose the server on hearing about the Thorns of Gold.

    Having glanced through the other posts in this forum, I am now a bit hesitant about whether I would fit in. Most of the other posts are from young Aussie males, a bit intimidating for an old Canadian female. My reflexes were never fast, and are now even slower. In my WOW play to date, I can readily see the difference between my reaction time and that of the younger friends I have made.

    My gaming experience is largely strategy games and turn-based RPGs. Morrowind was the only exception - I enjoyed it very much, being able to compensate for slow reflexes with some thought and over-levelling. WOW is the first MMORPG I have played. High-speed internet access has only just come to our part of rural Canada, so it was not an option before. TOG is also the first forum I have ever joined. I have limited techie skills, my formal computer training dating back to "fortran for engineers". I play as work, travel, and family allow. My nearest and dearest are technically Aussie males, but largely Canadianized. My 13 year old son also plays WOW, and I give him a hand occasionally.

    My character on Proudmoore is a lvl 16 night elf rogue named Phacelia. I am having a great time so far. I would appreciate an honest answer about whether I would fit in with Thorns of Gold, and should join later when I have more experince, or never.

    Welcome! Don't worry about "twitch" speed. In PlanetSide, which is a first person shooter, we've plenty of slow draws and we do just fine. Being mature and crafty is far more useful.

    Oh, and don't mind the Aussies. They're mostly harmless. :D
