Hello! I am Elena, I am 45 and I am addicted to historical RPGs... (at least this is my husband's opinion!) I'd say instead that I discovered RPGs in August 2009 and I like them a lot... but I've been writing since primary school (not in English, of course, in my mother tongue!). I am sailing to you from Bucharest, Romania, but I swear I am not a vampire. Neither Vlad the Impaler, aka Dracula, was... I am an economist, I work in international relations, so I work in English every day, this is why I had the courage to RP in English. I like writing, reading (mostly historical fiction, this is what I am writing too), listening to music, making new friends... and the RPGs brought me a few friends all over the globe. (Actually this is the reason why I keep doing it, even if sometimes when various people/ aspects frustrate me, quitting and keeping writing alone, in my mother tongue, do cross my mind.) I am the administrator of "Before the Mast", because Age of Sail has been always my favourite time. Actually when I joined RPGs, my first two characters have been characters I have extensively written before in my stories.
