Eire [created for me]

New to LiveJournal and this community...

Hello, I would just like to introduce myself and let you know that there's a new edition to your community.
I really enjoy fantasy and/or medieval based RPGs. I play the MMORPG 'Dark Age of Camelot' which seriously takes up most of my time considering I'm playing it practically 24-7. I also play 1st and 2nd edition D&D, Neverwinter Nights, various PC RPGs, etc.
My main concern is interaction with other people (players). I like to play games where the ending is not prewritten.
Well, I wouldn't want to bore you heh ::smiles:: so I suppose I'll get going. I hope to get to know all of you. ::waves::
