I suppose I'll go first to give this topic a bit of a start so we don't have the general 'awkwardness' that comes with posts like these!

You can refer to me here as Lady Aensland, or Morrigan, or even Morri, whichever you like. I have been role playing play-by-posts for about eight or nine years now, not really sure how long it's been, but I love it. I'm currently an English Major with an emphasis in Creative Writing, but don't let that intimidate you, I promise I'm a big dork.

I currently live in New Mexico and am taking my classes online for various health reasons and whatnot. (Open-Heart Surgery, People threatening to drill into my brainmeats, panic attacks, you know that sort of thing... ^^')

You're probably wondering how I may have gotten into the series as well as role playing in general, too, so I suppose I could fill you in on that little tidbit.

I got into the series thanks to our resident Zabel who is awesomesauce for showing me the awesomeness of this anime, granted, I still haven't played the game yet! I know, for shame! But all in time, all in time. Next, I got into role playing when I was about...Eleven I guess. I started with Harry Potter in random chats on AOL, and then really started into the 'dynamics' of role playing when I was about thirteen. I pretty much endured the 'Role Playing of Hard Knocks' as I liked to call it. My two main 'teachers' were serious hard-asses for grammar and punctuation, and put me down quite a bit until I shaped up my writing and aptly shoved their crap right back in their faces. Later, I found their stances to be somewhat elitist, and have branched off to help others improve, and not carry their streak of evilness. My philosophy on elitism is this: We all started somewhere, and we all needed a hand then, what makes us so special now? Another philosophy of mine is one which I'm sure is universally shared with all writers etc., and that is that there is always room for improvement. So improvement and helping others is really my core philosophy here at Darkstalkers, and pretty much regarding anything else in life, too. I'm sure you'll find that I'm a very laid back person, and quite easy to get along with as well. ^_^

Just this past year, well, technically half a year ago, I turned twenty! Yay me! I'm going to be legal next year! Haha. Not that I'm really going to be doing much in regards to that anyway. Okay, in addition to the 'laid back; easy to get along with comment' if you're being immature, (for some unbeknown reason) godmodding, trolling, or otherwise being obnoxious, I will not be afraid to call you on it. Especially if you are breaking the rules. Yes, I am your friend, and want to be, however that does not give you favor over anyone else; everyone is equal here and will be treated as such. You're probably wondering how in the hell I have any nerve talking about equality, well, here you go:

I was born with a mild case of Cerebral Palsy which affects my left side. If you aren't sure what Cerebral Palsy is please ask me. Anyway, my point is, I know what it's like to be treated unfairly and tend to advocate for an equal opportunity, especially in communities such as these. Oh-kay, switching gears now! My hobbies include:

~Writing
~Reading
~Role Playing
~Comic Book Collecting (although I lost my collection, it makes me sad. Sad)
~Piercings/Tattoos

And a bunch of other stuff. I've just recently become very much a Morrigan fan (obviously) but I'm not sure if you would necessarily call that a hobby or just an obsession with awesome independent ass-kicking anime chicks. I suppose I laid myself out on the table quite well, if you want to see what I look like:

My Myspace

And again, please don't be afraid to ask me any questions or come to me with concerns, I'll be more than happy to help in any way I possibly can!

Somebody said Zabel? I heard Zabel...

Oh! Anyway, this is Zabel Zarock aka The Dark, your terminally dorky webmaster, and I'll be following suit on this hare introduction thingie because I think it's a great way for us all to get to know each other.

So, I'm 23 and living in Utah, which is kind've ironic given my obsession with dark and subversive media, but I digress. I built this site because I love to game and I love Darkstalkers. I've been gaming since I was 15, which is just over 8 years now if I still remember my math, and my AVA System was most heavily inspired by the d20 system (which debuted shortly after my first Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, and that game will always hold a place in my heart) and BESM which, while I cannot and will not speak well of the clunky combat mechanic, has shown me that there are options with a point build system that a class-based can't touch.

My obsession with Darkstalkers began about the same time as my call to the gaming table. I rented Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors for my Playstation some time in late 1999 to early 2000, long before the term "PS1" had any meaning to gamers, and was instantly awed by the fluid, anime-like graphics, wild animations, background music so good you were actually thankful it could double as an audio cd, and most of all by the most lively bunch of mostly dead characters to ever step into a versus fighter. It's safe to say I was drawn most quickly to Zabel, who's skeletal appearance and rock star persona brought to mind a strange and wonderful combination of the epic cartoon heroes and EC Comics-inspired ghouls that had filled my childhood via countless hours in front of the tv.

By the time I rented Darkstalkers 3 (a small miracle, considering I had already "lost" and "paid for" the aforementioned copy of the first game, only to find a better copy for sale less than six months later, and the moral of that story is that piracy only pays if you're willing to settle for less), I was already building Darkstalkers fan sites and setting up small rp communities based around the game. Most of them have been lost to time, and I'd probably be embarassed to claim the few that aren't, but only because I know I can do better now; my affection for Darkstalkers has never gone away.

Like the Lady Morrigan, to whom I owe so much more than the sleek design of many of this site's graphics, I'm one for equal rights, but balance this with a healthy respect for stability in more than just the server's uptime. My single biggest pet peeve is community drama, which I define as bringing your out-of-character issues into the game and therefore diminishing the fun the other players have. If you really need to vent about something, I've listed my most often checked instant messenger screen name and email, and I'll be glad to listen, but please don't bring that here. We have a zero tolerance policy for it, not because we want to flex our modly muscles, but because community drama destroys communities. I've seen it happen too many times, and we're all here to have fun, right? Right?

Moving on, my biggest strengths as a gamemaster are that I love to be creative and spontaneous in throwing story material at players, value character development over raw statistical advancement yet know my own system well enough to really challenge active gamers, and absolutely enjoy gaming with people who enjoy having fun, so I'll be sure and attend to all my players. This is your game too.

If I have a weakness as a gamemaster, it's my lack of free time. I work part-time as a Nurse's Assistant, and am settling into the general routine of living on my own in a new area (I'm originally from Missouri), which tends to keep me busy, but as stated above, I love gaming with you guys, so it's a sure bet I'll make the time.

Hope to see you there.

I am Donovan Baine, Hunter of the Dark.

My true self is a 24 year old male who lives in Missouri and has played many D&D games with our webmaster in human form. I am the textbook example of
Videois Gameris and also a very avid fan of all things anime, including the Darkstalkers.

As Zabel connected with Zabel, (and I know that sounds weird, but just humor me) I have connected with Donovan in the sense that I can be a quiet guy, but when the need arises, I can really stand out.

When my brain isn't in anime or games, I work as a full time housekeeper in a casino.

Well, I look forward to having a fun time here, and I hope I'm right.

Hello. I'll be playing Hsien-Ko here, but you can call me Mallory or Mal. I've been a Darkstalker fan for years, ever since I rented the game out at Blockbuster back.. god knows when. XD After that, I was hooked. The unique characters and music were what really got me. Felicia used to be my favorite until I saw the anime and discovered Hsien-Ko. My favorite male character was Rikuo, then Jedah. I've got a thing for guys with weird headdresses, I think.

Anyway, about myself.. I'm a 21 year old female from Ohio who's a Library Aide at our Main Branch library. I'm a bit shy at first, but once you get to know me, I'm pretty friendly. I love video games, drawing, chatting, anime/manga, music, graphic design, RPing, and cosplaying. My three favorite series are Ultimate Muscle, Onegai My Melody, and Bastard!!

I've been RPing online practically ever since I got a computer back when I was 13. I've gone through a lot and can safely say that RPing has changed my life and helped me grow up. =3 I enjoy it a lot and always like taking on different types of characters to test my writing abilities. (Plus, lawl, you know it's awesome being able to control your favorite characters.)

You can generally catch me on AIM at 9PM EST at lonewarlockDS. I have this thing were I generally don't IM people first. XD;; I'm lazy and shy.

I can't wait to start RPing with you all!

Hello my fellow Darkstalkers, [bows]

My name is Jedah Dohma, as most of you know. You may called Jedah, Dohma, or another variation of the name if you like just as long as I know you're talking to me. I just want to let you all know that I look forward to playing with you all on here.

I am a 19y/o full time student at ITT Tech attending for multimedia/game design.

I'm usually a serious [almost hardcore console gamer] but being as it's being repaired I picked up on playing RPs. I must say it's rather fun, and it requires more imagination than playing with a joystick for about 11 hours a day.

To tell about me personally, I'm passive, random, hyper, intelligent, semi-outgoing. [that sounds like as if I was putting out for a dating profile.] Anyways I just like to meet people and have fun having fun. I mean I really don't open up as fast as a window, but once I get my feet wet here I'll be having alot more fun and be a lot more open here.

Well I think this about covers it for what I'm saying, the rest of what I would write would probably amount to a nonsensical rant of stupidity and boredom.

See you in Mejigen,
Jedah
