"Agreed. Well Said! PC is over rated. I realized I was an eccentric a long time ago, that it was much more interesting than being "normal" (no such thing of course but it comforts those of the "In Crowd" to cling to such self…"

"Very Cool! Thanks! I'm rather an avid LARPer of many kinds, I used to play in a LARP in Mass, I am interested in running an SP one myself and perhaps playing in one that already exists (if I can make it to where it is happening)."

Profile Information

Introduction
So, first in the spirit a bit about myself in relation to Steam Punk. I'm a person interested in Steampunk, looking to meet others interested in the same, particularly in my area. I'm not exactly what you'd call a hardcore steampunk, yet I very well could be. I am very partial to costumes and dressing up. I currently have most of an airship captain costume, for a character named Maximillian Drake (Quite frankly, this need not be the only Steam Punk character I ever play, but its my favorite so far, and the identity I'll use for this site.)The genre has always interested me, as I have always been a History buff, enjoy science fiction, and now have a Bachelor's in History from Binghamton University. At BU I joined the LARP Club and participated in helping to write the rules for and run a simple Steampunk LARP. This experience got me even more interested in the genre, to the point where I'm looking for others interested in helping to write rules for, play in and run a foam padded weopon/nerf gun type Seampunk type LARP in my area.

Now a little more about myself. I am first and foremost an artist. I mostly work in leather and chainmaille these days, but dabble in many other types of media as well. With these skills I'm thinking I might move more in the direction of working in a steampunk theme.

Foam padded weapon LARP has been a passion of mine for about 17 years. As a result I have become a fairly accomplished swordsman. While I am a gamer for sure, I don't think the term "geek" really fits me too well. So, I don't consider myself a gamer geek. I am one of those folks with many facets. I'm a bookworm and an academic, yet not a geek. I'm quite active and adventurous, but I am also by no means a jock either.

I tend to be a social animal, even though I'm somewhat of a "freak" to most "normal" people, I manage to fit in with most and make friends easily. In general I have an abundance of will power and am honest to a fault. Truth, honor and self control are very important to me. Some would say I'm almost old fashioned in my values because of it. I have never been near the Blarney Stone (although I have traveled a good bit in Europe), but have the gift of gab. I can talk for hours about just about anything, and truly enjoy and value intelligent conversation.

So if you are interested in participating in the planning for and running of a new Steampunk LARP in the Upstate New York area drop me a line.

Rise like lions after slumber

In unvanquishable number!

Shake your chains to earth, like dew

Which in sleep had fallen on you-

Ye are many; they are few!

-the poet Shelley

There are so many areas of study I would love to devote much time to, and I suppose they would all look better on a resume besides "dancer". I should put some thought into it.

I wondered if a BA was "useful". Maybe someday when I have time and extra money, I will be able to pursue it.

I'm jealous! I should have majored in history.
