Deathflames and the amazing killer hair - 2004-10-26

Personal details:

Q: How did you get your name?
A: I got it merely by combining two great ideas. Killing stuff and burning stuff. Can't go wrong there.

Q: How old are you?
A: Well, Deathflames is about 34 1/2 weeks old, but I'm just short of 17 in reality.

Q: What level are you?
A: Not high enough? I'm up to level 124 now, but the going is rather slow.

Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: Hmmm, first off I'm most definetely an asshole. Yeah. I have my days were I can be fun, though. I've also got the most dangerous hair in Loriah, small people and felines beware.
(Yeah, the hair is rather fearsome -- Ed) A: Can't deny it, many newbies have mysteriously dissapeared in my presence.

Q: Where do you live?
A: Way down south in the U.S., a cuddly little town called Arab with nothing to do, a shitty football team, and lots of rednecks.

Q: How long have you been logging on to AoD?
A: Something like 4 years, now? Since the summer of '99, I think. Ish.

Mudding in general:

Q: How did you first get in contact with Ages of Despair?
A: I went home with Lazaris after a soccer game back in the day, and he showed AoD to me. I was pretty much instantly hooked. Nikodemos and Alimere took me to the monastery and we beat up some demons.

Q: Do you regularly play or wiz on any other MUDs?
A: Nope, I sure don't. I played 3k for about a week, but other than that AoD has been my only MUD.

Q: Are you a normal mudder or do you seldom log on?
A: Back in the day you'd have never seen me leave, but I've been without an internet connection for a few months now, so I don't get much of a chance to be here. I show up whenever I can manage it, though.
(But you will be back, just like Arnold! -- Ed) A: That I will, hopefully within the next few days!

Q: Have you met any fellow mudders in RL?
A: The only one I've met that I didn't know before I started playing is Aidan, but I also know and hang out with Lazaris, Alimere, Nikodemos, and a few others. I'd like to get a chance to go up to Canada sometime and meet a few friends there.

Game specific:

Q: Did you ever get killed by a ("the") horrible creature?
A: Yep! Several times. Killed me the first round the first time I met him, I believe.

Q: Who is your favourite and most hated npc respectively?
A: My favorite would probably have to be Bazehilith, just because back in the day she was the mob I always wanted to kill, plus she's one of the most original mobs I've ever fought. My most hated...Well, I'm going to have to go with Najar, the invincible demon of rediculousness.

Q: What is the funniest/strangest thing that ever happened to you on AoD?
A: Probably the first penguin invasion, mostly brought on by my constant complaining about how terrible penguins are. They're smug little bastards, you know? They have that 'I'm a cute little zoo bird, love me' look, and it just makes me sick. I'd kill them all if I had a big enough stick and more spare time.
(Faye pets Df lovingly. -- Ed) A: Careful, my hair bites.

Q: Do you have any piece of equipment you just can't live without?
A: Hmm, that would have to be my Darksword. Soloing Morchan is probably the only thing I've ever done here that was truly noteworthy, and the sword is just plain cool.

Q: What do you prefer to do, Solo or Party?
A: I'm definetely a partying man. Nothing beats killing huge things at 3 am with four other delirious players. Life gets very interesting. The downside of partying are the dice rolls, which God has commanded all forces of nature and technology to prevent me from rolling double digits. Ever.

Q: Do you have a "special place" where you like to hang out, a private corner so to speak?
A: Oh yeah, that's definetely the uber tree. It's a great place, all the cool people go there. You're not cool if you haven't been.

Q: How much of your time on AOD do you spend hanging out or chatting compared with exping?
A: I do alot more chatting nowadays than exping, if I had more time I'd probably do both, but I find it hard to get into just running around and slaying stuff nowadays.

Q: What is the best thing about Ages of Despair?
A: Definetely the people. I don't think I could live without being able to make fun of Anomalie, kick ass with Hitaru, get great advice on females from Tycho, or hang out with the other cool people around here.
(advice on the ladies from Tycho? FEAR! -- Ed) A: yeah, that what all the ladies seem to think. hmm...
(Kind of makes you wonder... -- Ed)

Q: What is the worst thing about Ages of Despair?
A: Well, for a long time it was having to listen about what Griff did during his spare time, but nowadays it's probably just seeing some of my friends leave. Makes me sad.

Q: Do you have any driving ambitions on AOD? Is there anything that you want to achieve or perhaps something that you have already achieved?
A: Well, there are always the common ambitions of killing Kraal and Moserath, but more than anything else I think what I want is to be remembered. I'd like to leave a mark here, be someone that people don't just forget about.

Q: Is there any advice you would like to give to new players that have just entered our world?
A: Hmmm, just that it's a great place to hang out with some awesome people, and that drugs are bad. Sorta. I suppose they do make for some very amusing conversations.

Other / Strange:

Q: Were you ever convicted of a crime?
A: Oh, God, most definetely. Several times. I remember one in particular... "Faye tells you: I need to talk to you in a few minutes" "Trajan has transfered 2500000 coins to your bank account." My bank account was cleared probably 10 minutes later.
(I cant recall that particular one -- Ed) A: I transfered money between alts or some such, it was just something stupid.

Q: Have you ever engaged in so-called mudsex?
A: How could I have not with people as sexy as Tycho and Hitaru around? Mmmm.
(Ewww -- Ed) A: That's not what you said when we showed you the tapes!
(Uh subject -- Ed)

Q: Favourite quote?
A: "There are no stupid questions, only stupid people."

Q: What music are you listening to now, if any?
A: Green Day, American idiot.

Q: If you could remove one of the questions from this interview and replace it with another one, which would you remove and what would you replace it with?
A: Hmmm... I wouldn't remove any, but I'd probably add one about who the sexiest player on AoD is, because everyone needs to know stuff like that.

Q: And of course I will have to ask you to answer your own question now.
A: Sexiest player on AoD is definetely Multani, I can't understand how that dude can still be single. Must be his corpse fetish.
(I guess tastes differ, dear -- Ed) A: I don't know about differing, some people just lack taste period. I mean, come on, Ulme?
(Mind your words or you will experience some serious smiting! -- Ed) A: Been there, done that. I've been smited by the best!

Q: Who would you like me to interview next, and why?
A: Bender. That dude is just cool. I've never met someone who can make me laugh my ass off like he does.

Q: If I do that interview, is there a specific question that you want me to ask?
A: Yeah, ask him when we're having the next Low Rollers Club meeting, I always forget. I'm bad with dates.

Q: Do I have your permission to make this information public on the People of AoD webiste or any other media?
A: Sure, go ahead. Everyone should know more about me.
