    About me (in Real Life)

    Well, my name is Alexandra and I’m a 1x years old girl from Romania, or if that name doesn’t ring any bell to you, from Transylvania (home land of Dracula) and I may or may not be a vampire and/or somehow related with the mentioned character. :) Please don’t ask what the x stands for – it may as well stand for a low digit and have the role of hiding my childishness and make myself look a bit more mature, as well as it can stand for a high digit and represent the desperate cry from a young woman still holding on her childhood. :p If you want to be safe though, you can always presume it is “5″ – you can’t be wrong with more than 4 years then – hahaha.

    I love mountain trips, books, chess and computer games, and since that last one is probably a passion we both share, I’ll tell you a few more things about it. I was lucky (or is it unlucky? :p) enough to have an older brother which was an avid gamer and before letting me play the “modern games” he forced me to spend at least a week on each of the “classics” so I’m at least somehow familiar with the “history of gaming” – so I’m probably one of the very few people in my generation that is familiar with games likes Heroes I, Dune II or Civilization II. :) Among my all time favorites – Civilization, Heroes or Sims series if we talk about single player games or LotRO and WURM if we talk about MMOs (I picked one theme park and one sandbox to try to please everyone :p).

    About me (in Entropia Universe)

    I created my Entropia Universe account on February 10th, on planet Arkadia and it don't took long to realize that I'm totally sold to the game; and if you want to ever PM me in game, the name is Lovefall (or Kiddoo Lovefall Kiddoo if you're looking for the full name). :p I have many dreams and goals in game, but probably the biggest one is to manage to come to the point where to be totally self sufficient, as in being able to survive with only what I gather and craft myself, without having to buy other people's wares, without spending RL$ and without counting on any external help/income sources. Guess I could say that I play the game, as much as possible, in "single player mode".

    I also must be a true masochist, because I set myself an extra challenge about the game, and, at least according to what everyone that saw it said, quite a crazy one. :p Truth being said though, the reason for doing this is not only that I love hard challenges and competing against the odds, but also that my (self-diagnosed) OCD needs a consistent play style, with clear rules and boundaries, and with little room for external factors. So… what’s my challenge? Well, let’s see…

    1. Never spend any RL$ in game (neither direct or indirect), except an initial deposit of $50 (the Gold Starting Package – $40, the Bronze Starting Package – $5 and 50 PEDs – $5) that I won as part of some deal involving some RL online work from my side.

    2. Never accept any gifts (neither in RL$, PEDs or items) from anyone else; also, try to limit the contacts with other people only to social ones, as in not really grouping or working for.

    3. Never buy materials or items from other people, so if I’ll want anything better than what I can buy from TT, then I’ll have to learn to craft it myself; the only exception from this rule are BPs (blueprints) or items no longer achievable by any other ways.

    Oh, my child. Wait until you hit the marvelous 3x age. Then we can talk about holding on to ones childhood! ;)
    As for classic games - thought you were going to say Space Invaders, PacMan, Pong and/or Tetris. :p Though I can accept SimCity (2k is my fave) as a classic too. Why is a church always built first?!

    Welcome to Arkadia!

    Welcome to Entropia, hope you'll enjoy it! :thumbsup:

    At first I thought that's your Avatar age, before I continued to read. :oops: And was wondering what reason to hide it. :biggrin:

    Hi Lovefall and welcome to EU and Arkadia. I've seen you in Ark chat the last few days and happy to see you've found the forums as well =)

    I used to play Wurm as well; terraforming for days on end to build a nice little homestead.

    I hope you enjoy your time on Arkadia and have fun exploring everything EU offers!

    -Brook

    Welcome to EU and Planet Arkadia! I've noticed, since I found the ark forums, that this is one of the most helpful, friendly bunches of lunatics in the entire game. So any questions, just shoot em out there, someone will grab it and shake an answer loose for you!

    Never played Wurm... just looked at the site... Interesting... :)
