A funny thing happened on the way to the forums: I discovered a free blog service here. What could possibly go wrong? Long-winded, check. Opinionated, check. Unconventional, check. Inebriated...not just yet.
So who is OddjobXL? He's a crusty old roleplayer who dragged himself out, along with the legged fishies, of the primordial ooze that was white box Dungeons and Dragons back in the 70's. Ever since, except for brief interludes of near coolness, he's been a gamer whether tabletop, console or on the trusty PC. Wargamer, flight simmer, roleplayer, MUSHer and MMO junkie. Been there, done that. And always looking for the perfect immersive experience.
Hint: It ain't here yet, kids.
Currently playing: Star Trek Online and Lord of The Rings Online
That's enough for a brief drumroll of getting-to-know-you. My first regular post will be along shortly. Any other old timers here? Are you skeptical about MMOs as roleplaying vehicles or hopeful about them?
