Introduce Yourself

Post by Parrafin » Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:56 pm

I'm from Roanoke, Virginia, USA and I'm 22 years old. Hey! it's my birthday today.
My characters on MUME are Parrafin the weakass Elf warrior and Tarptus, a Dunadan Ranger.
I haven't really played any other MUDs. I usually enjoy real-time strategy games like Star Craft or Red Alert, or adventure games like Zelda or Resident Evil 4. I have little experience with MUDs. I first played MUME as a middle schooler, I didn't get it, and I used my nascent programming abilities to spam create a million characters and probably lag and ruin everyones game at the moment. Sorry about that. I like MUME too much to do that again, if it is even still possible (doubt it).
I've always been a huge Tolkien fan since I first read the Hobbit.

Other than that, I do woodworking at this shop on a place called Poor Mountain. It's a very nice area. Sucks ass for gas mileage on the commute, but it's worth it. We make 3d animal shaped puzzles that are sold all over the freakin world. Mainly, I just listen to books on tape (er..mp3??) all day though. If one thing in the world is more of a pain to learn than MUME, maybe it's woodworking. Of course, I'd rather accidentally sand my knuckles on a belt sander than mobDie.
I'm also in a local punk rock/hardcore band with some friends, which I play guitar and sing for. I also enjoy playing drums and mandolin.

I'm from California, USA. I'm 18 and its NOT my birthday.
I've had some older characters that were hero/legend+ but they deleted. I first played MUME around '01, but I was 11 and I didnt really fit in with the mature player base (not to say all young people are immature). Currently I play Slippy(legend) / Felarthil(hero) / some lowbies.

I have played a lot of other MUDs, but since mume was my first they all get compared to it in my head and they just can't stand up to it.

I'm a moderate Tolkien fan, I've read the lotr books and the hobbit, most of the silmarillion, and seen the movies. I'm by no means a die hard ;)

I don't really play any other games at all any more, but I used to play SC / RA too. My biggest hobby for the last few years has been programming, I haven't worked on any projects worthy of note though. So for now I just learn different languages and make proof of concept programs. I work at the Geek Squad doing in-store IT support in a local Best Buy. Im taking a break from school before I start college, and I'm liking that quite a bit. Not the most exciting life but its going, ya know?

PS: I hope some more people join in this. If your reading this, just join in! When I read logs I always see people referring to others by name, I know all you hardcore players know one another. Maybe if we all open up a bit more we can even expand the player base :D

my name is curt. i am from portland oregon USA! i am 28 atm so i am one of the old mumers. well not as old as vaire but i am getting there. i started playing mume in about 2002-2003, i dont remember when. early spring in one of those years is all i remember. *lots of pot back then* i mainly play Beltar, Wort and Wilt atm. admittedly i am not an amazing mumer but i can handle myself in most situations.

as far as other muds go i have played a couple for very short periods of time. no more than a couple days or maybe a week.

i am a normal tolkien fan i guess. not crazy rabid about it and i cant speak elvish. have all the movies on hd and watch them once every few months.

i am also a very heavy xbox 360 player. call of duty 4, rainbow six vegas 2 and some other games of that genre. i currently i am a sex addict working in a porn store. no i am kidding. i manage a large retail electronics store and i have a good time. see ya around the way.

My name is Ian. I'm from Hammond, Louisiana, USA, but I'm currently in Daytona Beach, Florida for school. I'm 22 years old, and only now finishing up my degree in aerospace engineering.

I play troll(s) almost exclusively. MUME is the only MUD, and usually the only computer game I play.

I am a moderate Tolkien fan. I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I've played the game. It's all fun.

No real jobs at the moment, but whenever I get a spare day I go to the next town over and work in my friend's shop making armour. It's not as exciting as it sounds. =P

I don't do much with computers outside of MUME. In fact, I can't stand working with software. It angers me. My hobbies extend more to active stuff. I'm a martial artist, mostly. I've got a 1-0 amateur muay thai record. If I get enough time to go in and train hard again I'd like to add some more numbers to that. I also do jiu jitsu, though I've got no notable accomplishments there, and fight with the Society for Creative Anachronisms where I do both rapier-ish combat and armoured combat (think sword and shield, but with a stick as the sword). It's much fun. =)

I also like travelling, and trying to talk all the rest of you Americans into going to the international MUME meets. They're fun! =P

MUME's Real girl

Post by meian » Mon May 05, 2008 4:22 am

Hello, my name is Jen. =3 I live in Toronto Ontario, Canada and I just turned legal. Ew. I'm gonna be taking another year in school and i'm not gonna graduate this year because I'm missing a credit, because it wouldn't fit into my stupid timetable, because I chose slightly more different courses than everyone else in my grade. >/

I play Meian, mostly, and i'm working on another combo and a warrior up there to Hero, at least. In MUME, I have a personal vendetta against Giant Slugs (I'm still all for the Chunk of Salt eff vs. Slug by means of wielding or projectile...), and Spirits (being a warrior and not being able to bash them...). I'm also extremely afraid of getting lost around moors because I have a bad habit of getting ambushed and PKed there. Although, on my lowbie, I got ambushed by a lil' BN when I had just stepped out for some milk irl while I was low on moves, and I was just watching the screen as he tried to kill me... but couldn't. =3 I was all giggles that day. Anyhow,

As some may realize, I'm a bitter person when it comes to dealing with the opposite sex, and have become extremely annoyed with all/most of the ones I meet in real life. It seems that I attract idiots by the dozen, and it makes me sick that they all are after the same thing, usually because I seem cute, thus, easy. Spare me. I much rather a safe physical distance from males after my last encounter, so MUME is a nice place. <3

To escape from the irritations of daily life, I roleplay often and immerse myself in various fantasies, in a sketchbook, in a notebook, or just a novel, all while listening to music <333. Usually Jrock, which my life revolves around, and the like; I rather like to avoid most forms of Jpop, specifically. I'm also quite interested in EGA and VK fashion. Another random fact, I'm in level 8 piano and has been playing it since I was 5, and I adore lower brass instruments.

I'm one of those people turned to LOTR when the movies came out, but was a little bored by the books. I got my hands on the Silmarillion and just fell in love; I'm such a sucker for history and details. After that, the trilogy made a lot more sense and meant a lot more to me. =3

and yes, I AM A REAL GIRL. >D
I'm a GIRL who plays MUME. =3

Post by Vortenos » Mon May 05, 2008 3:37 pm

I play Vortenos (cleric) and Ealanwe (mage). I am middle-aged and live in Wisconsin, U.S.A. I am married and have a 2-1/2 month old and a 9-year-old step-son in the house, along with a dog that likes to sit on my keyboard.

I started Muding when in college some 15 years ago, mostly LPs. I was an administrator at Nuclear War, which is still functioning today. I wrote areas there and at Gumbimud (defunct I believe). I started playing MUME, my only Diku, because of an obsession for Tolkien. My characters from back then are gone, but just as well, as I'm relearning to play from scratch.

I spent many years in graphical MMORPGs but with the lifestyle changes of having a wife who doesn't want me stuck on a computer all night and a baby who needs my care I had to return to something I could afk some at. While there is that threat of being PK'd while afk I rarely do anything too daring or group exp'ing until the baby is in bed~~

I guess that if Ari joined i will too :P
My name is Adolfo, i'm 19 years, 1 month and 8 days old, and i'm proudly mexican (and please don't call me Hitler, if you feel the urge to relate me to another Adolph out there, think of Adolphe Sax :D)

I used to play on MUME about 3 years ago as Gillykun, and even got to legend! but i stopped playing and gillykun got old and naked because i didn't care to retire him
As the keen observer should have realized by now, i play mostly Narmo, (who's an elven mage around lvl 18 by now), and i am very good friends with ari (and another two mexican mumers who don't really play a lot, i kind of lost contact with all of my other mume friends though :( ).

I don't see myself as a die-hard tolkien fan but i'm not so moderate either, i know my stuff and i've read the books at least four times (one of them in english), including the silmarillion.
Right now i'm on a scholar hiatus (changing school) so i've got some free time on me and i use mostly to play MUME and my saxophone :P
I enjoy jazz, reading, playing smash (anyone out there wants to brawl?) and anything that represents a mental challenge (this last one can get pretty weird, i.e: i'm majoring in math)

What else? i guess that'll be enough, see you in MUME!

I am Tobias, and i am close to 41 years, making me one of the older mumers. I play MUME since 2001, and I am one of the MWs. The completed zone I have written is north-east of Lorien, the one with Offa the Scout and the Bear Statue. Currently I write zones around Dol Goldur and in Southern Rohan. Among my mortals are beings like Gourmet the Troll, Caegirith the Elven Quake-Mage and Blancho the Hobbit Merchant (I have 29 chars in my account, most of them hero and above). I am currently unemployed after I closed my own law office due to a burnout, but working as volunteer for social workers while looking for a new job. I love Tolkiens Work, and many parts of the movies (Elves at Helms Deep? Go away!).
I have never played other MUDs. If I don't play MUME, I spend my time as admin of german-languaged wikipedia, writing about medivial arts, Essen abbey and similiar exotic themes (I'll got a little reputation as a historican about such themes). And I have a strong love for my personal peace, good food and beverage - together with the surplus pounds around my waists I'd say I am a hobbit disguised as a human.

Hello, I'm Jahara, or in real-life, Nils.

I'm 23 years old and have been playing Mume on-and-off since the fall of '99. My god has since reached the rank of Mb and I am currently working on the Dol Guldur and quest projects. I am probably mostly well known for my stat generator, although I have also built a zone in the Forest of Fangorn (the one with Treebeard) and designed the Harle quest. I am a huge fan of creating ASCII art whoises (whois Jahara for a list of my characters and their whoises :P ) and I never seem to be capable of leveling my legends beyond the mid-thirties. :x

In real-life I am attending Indiana University where I am getting a masters in Bioinformatics, although it has looking more and more likely that I will be going for a PhD. I am also a computer hardware enthusiast; which sadly is a hobby that I'm quickly finding that I am not being able to afford much longer. :(

Hi, I'm Coyo7e, my RL name is Carlos. I live in Eugene, Oregon, USA. I'm currently 29 (I don't know why anyone over 25 thinks they're the older group of players, MUDs don't get many kids these days,) and I am a professional computer geek, specialising in networking. I also have an XBox360, if you want to play some COD4 or w/e, you can message me at gamertag "CJ coyo7e". I'm also a somethingawful goon, which means that I take my gaming very, very seriously. (NSFW)

MUME was my first MUD back when I was about 11 or 12, I think it was MUME II at the time, back when randomly generated stats and manually rerolling your character and powering him up high enough to see your numerical stats was the norm, and Willpower didn't do anything. I've fought Trix and Isaldren, partied with Petrel when he was stuck at level 15-16 for a ridiculously long time IRL (you have no idea how blown away I was when I saw he'd actually managed to become an imm.) I wasn't any good back then, but MUME got me started MUDding, and I keep coming back every time I fade away. I've played on a lot of other MUDs, but I tend to stick to the more "hardcore" ones where you can pk, psteal, and generally kill whomever you want as long as you are ready to stand the consequences, and I learned to love the excitement and risk of PK from MUME.

My most recent character until now was a Elf Scout named Vingk, who I used to explore all the new areas that had been added (BlueMountains, Lorien, Fangorn, Rohan, noc) since I'd played as a little kid. I have a couple of terrible logs up on elvenrunes but my scout has long ago autodeleted. :cry:

I miss all the old friends who've moved on or changed names and forgotten me, and look forward to meeting some new acquaintances on MUME. I'm currently playing an elvish scout named Coyote, so say hi, because I don't know anybody anymore! :oops:

I am Joel.

I am 21 years old (woot) and I'm out of highschool, and doing nothing right now. I am planning on going into the military as military police very soon, and will do a 6 year enlistment (MUME will keep me from going insane those 6 years). Mainly because I feel like I'm going nowhere, and don't enjoy school. Although, while I am in I plan on getting my Associates degree in Criminal Justice, and my bachelors in either Computer Science or Information Technology (which I will take to my masters level depending on how I like it, I'm mainly interested in web design).

I've played mume on and off, and recenetly came back a few months ago after a good year long or so break. I am known as Materia, Nioshel, Xury, Iror, Seto, Sasquatch, Patience, Xaan and many more to come soon. I started probably around 01-02 and did nothing but MINE MINE MINE. Had to sell that ore ya'know? I miss that feeling back then, before you realized MUME is not as big as it was. Damn walking around the worn trail was an adventure! I am sure I was definately one of the more annoying players back in the day, and still am because so much can change in such a slow paced game in just one year! I consider myself a decent player as well, I have not managed any significant achievements but I manage to have hella fun while playing!

Also, I'm not the biggest gamer, but I do enjoy Counterstrike, some GunZ Online (not so much anymore) and some good console games such as GTA SA, FF7, the Zelda's on N64 etc.

Oh, I enjoy playing BN more than anything else in the game, its awesome, try it.

Anywho, thats about it. Time to go play some BN!

My name is Ítalo, im a 28 years brazilian.

Started to play around 2001 when a friend said to me 'Here is a game which you might like to play' (after a session of Diablo 2 at the University). After that im addicted to it, and barely graduated :D

I used to play more when i could play from work...

At RL I work with Aircrafts (Embraer) as Electrical Engineer. At Mume Life, i used to play whitie a LOT, but now i try to stay at dark side. First time i have warlorded was when i studied at Portugal and link there were amazing 90ms. Compared to my best link at Brazil 280ms, it is like driving a ferrari.
