...I'm a man of poverty and tackiness. And if that made no sense to you, you need to start listening to better music. I'm Screwface Romeo. You can call me by either, or both, I really don't care. I'm a reluctant transplant from RoleplayGateway, which was a fantastic website until about a week ago, when it decided it was going to shit 502, 522 and SQL errors all over my computer and then go offline. Having been forced to abandon a couple of RPs I had been quite excited about due to this unfortunate turn of events, I decided to find a new site to host them on, and a bit of searching turned up this one. I haven't quite made up my mind whether I like it or not, which leaves me with the option of simply trying it out. As you may have guessed, this is not my first rodeo. I've been a regular player on the Gateway for a couple of years now, under this name and others (which is apparently frowned upon around here), and before that I was primarily involved on other websites, like NationStates, which had large RP communities, but didn't focus on it entirely. I've tried chat RP, but find it annoying for the same reason that I despise Twitter: it seems to encourage illiteracy and shitty writing. Forums have always been, and will always be my one true love, as they suit my style far better. My style, you ask? Or, you don't ask? Whatever, you're getting it anyway: I like longform, advanced, well written form RP with multi-paragraph posts, lots of world building, and a cooperative writing approach. I don't post often (once or twice a day is about average), but when I do, I can pretty much guarantee you that I've proofread it and put some actual effort into creating it. Typically, I prefer the role of game master. Mostly because I spend 90% of my free time sitting on the back porch chain-smoking and dictating pages upon pages of sci-fi world building crap onto my iPad, and it's a shame to let all that go to waste. Personality wise, I'm a man of many contradictions. I love to spew vitriolic bile and hatred, but I'm also a pretty nice guy. I take an incredibly cynical and bitter view of humanity, but I approach life with a happy go lucky attitude. I will rip apart movies, television, books, and games with an unrelenting critical fury, but there's nothing I love more than ungodly cheesy 80s action and sci-fi movies. I'll be protesting a gay marriage ban one week, and an assault weapons ban the next. The key to understanding me is this: I live and breath humor, sarcasm and absurdity, I'm perfectly comfortable with ambiguity and contradiction, and I'm very rarely serious. In fact, I highly suggest you don't take anything I say seriously, unless I explicitly state that I am being serious. And even then, you should probably take it with a grain of salt. If you offend easily, buy into political correctness, see the world as being black and white, or think that the Internet is serious business, you're going to have a bad time. If you like to have fun, know how to laugh at the absurd, and understand the value of being able to not give a shit, we're probably going to get along. I'm a colossal nerd. Sci-Fi nerd, that is. Fantasy was never really my cup of tea. Too much magic, not enough boomsticks. If I'm not drunkenly yelling at my copy of Mass Effect 3, re-watching Firefly for the 30th time, or pumping out piles of lore for my long-running universe project, you may catch me enjoying other things as well, such as binge watching Trailer Park Boys, morning the loss of George Carlin, or burning the majority of my disposable income at the local pistol range. I love starships, aliens, guns, history, futurism, dark humor, ranting about shit most people would consider irrelevant, Sailor Jerry brand spiced naval rum, and the 80s. Some people call me an asshole. I call myself eccentric. You can take your pick.
