    My name is Caleb Wright. I am looking forward to joining your group. As to my age I may be over qualified. I am 62. I became addicted to the first Bards Tale, and have been playing ever since. I have read and agree to both the Rules and Guidelines. My current habit is World of Warcraft. I live in California and play mostly during the day when the kids are in school, and my wife is at work. Less distractions:p I haven't joined a guild yet but I an hoping to find one with like-minded people.

    I used to play the original Bard's Tale on my Commodore 128 (went from a Vic-20 right to the 128, got to skip the 64...) until the wee hours of the morning!

    Bard's Tale - what a game. If I wasn't losing my young life to that I was flying the galaxy in my Cobra mk III ;)
