My name’s Rebecca and I’m in my 40s and living in just North of London with my husband and our two cats (Diesel and Malarkey). I spend my leisure time going to the theatre, reading, watching too much TV, reading comics and playing computer games.
My history in roleplaying started with D&D tabletop with my sisters, and progressed through White Wolf’s Vampire, Changeling and Mage games, and also dabbled in Paranoia, Call of Cthulhu and In Nomine.
In computer games, I was never very confident of my abilities, so I used to just watch better players play games. Then I dabbled with Ultima 6, Angband and a few tentative roleplaying games before I discovered MUSHing and took part in quite a few White Wolf MUSHes. I still think I suck at games more than anyone else I know.
My first MMO was Dark Age of Camelot which I played for 2.5 years. After a break from the genre, I participated in the World of Warcraft Alpha and then played through the game for about 2.5 years after it was released. I checked out Vanguard, then sword off MMOs for life before trying LotRO and immediately buying a lifetime sub, and then getting all worked up about Warhammer Online and having fun in that game too.
I created a Warhammer Online blog, The Book of Grudges, and worked on it with my sister (online name: Spinks) until December 2008 when it was taking up too much of our time and we decided to let it rest on its laurels.
