    Other Information

    In a few sentences, how would you describe yourself to us?
    I’m a gamer and crafter, love animals, music and cooking. I’m a big sci-fi and fantasy nerd, and love reading.

    In a few sentences, how would you describe your gaming habits?
    I’m a primarily coop gamer, with a passion for RPGs and strategy games. I’ve played World of Warcraft since 2005, EVE online since 2010, and various other online games (League of Legends and Smite stand out).

    What are you looking for from this community?
    A group of awesome people to hang out with and game.

    How did you hear about the Skjaldborg?
    My partner is a member (Solomance)

    What do you feel you will bring to the community?
    I enjoy learning new games, and primarily enjoy playing support roles - so I’m almost always looking for people to support!

    On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being very casual, and 10 being very hardcore what is your ATTITUDE?
    It honestly depends on the game, but I would average a 5-6

    Between 10 and 20

    What time zone do you normally game in?
    Est

    Please give any other information you might think is useful for us to know.
    I like pocket healing - finding a person or people to follow around in games and provide support roles to. This is quite possibly the most enjoyable part of gaming for me.

    World of Warcraft, EVE Online, Mechwarrior Online, League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Stellaris.

    What is your account name(s) for those games? If possible please link to your profile as well.

    What kind of roles do you like to play?
    I generally play support characters - healers or AMS, anything where I’m not primary guns

    Do you prefer heavy roleplay or more casual story interaction?
    I’m largely indifferent. I’m happy either way, it’s more about the people.

    Welcome to the application process. The rest of the membership will be asking questions to get to know you a bit more. These will be odd at times.

    To our existing members be nice. :p

    Why hello!

    From the onset I'll say that you have quite the hurdle to overcome- having a connection to Solomance. Honestly though, I commend you for your courage in openly acknowledging it.

    What has been your favorite guild/gaming group that you've been a part of in the past? What set them apart and allowed them to earn that distinction?

    Do you primarily stick to multiplayer games, or do you ever dabble in single player titles? If so, what were the last one or two that you really enjoyed?

    Give me three fantasy/sci-fi novel recommendations. I would be particularly interested in sci-fi, as I don't currently read a ton of it and I'm looking to change that with a few good titles to add to my reading list.

    What is the most embarrassing story you can get away with sharing about Solomance?

    I'd ask a question, but I've already sampled your cooking. Good from me :)

    We're always nice. :unamused:

    For a question, do you have a nickname you'd like us to use? Sola and Solo might be a little hard to distinguish over voice chat.

    We ARE always nice.

    Expanding on Haki's question do you have a nickname that refers to both of you if someone is addressing both of you?

    Courage is not the absence of fear; rather, the assessment that something is more important than fear. :)

    My favourite group would probably be my old eve corp (Voidlight). I met my best friend there, and gained surrogate family, friends, and a vast knowledge of who I am as a person.

    I primarily stick to multiplayer games, but I'm a fan of the Dark Souls franchise, and recently got into Crusader Kings II.

    Fantasy is easier for me than sci-fi - arguably, Solo is the larger sci-fi fan of the two of us.
    Fantasy - there's a trilogy called Sunrunner's Fire by Melanie Rawn that is fantastic - dragons, and magic and deserts and traditional villany.
    Also fantasy, though children's, the Redwall series by Brian Jacques is incredible.
    Finally, for fantasy, the Royal Institute of Magic series by Victor Kloss - more young adult fantasy, but hilarious and fantastic. The author is now deceased, but the ghost writer they got to finish his last book stayed very in tune with his original intent, and I was pleased.

    Sci-Fi:
    Altered Carbon - fantastic book, also now netflix series.
    Neuromancer - I actually read this on recommendation from Solo, and will continue the recommendation part. I couldn't put it down.
    1984 - I'm sure everyone's read this, it's assigned reading in high school here. That said - it's arguably one of my favourite books of all time. I love the character development, and I have a soft spot for dystopian anything. Every time I read it, I end up finding new depths and nuances to the book, and would recommend a second read through even if you've already read it once.

    As far as embarrassing Solo? That's a hard task - he's not an easy person to embarrass, nor does he do horribly embarrassing things. He snores?

    My actual first name (Lia) is fine. Sola and Solo does get confusing, for sure.

    We do not have one of those odd couple mashup names that I'm aware of. Feel free to come up with one if it tickles your proverbial pickle.

    If you start calling us the Mancy's, I'll start calling you Cuppa. It's like bubba, but references your boobs.
