Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: I am your normal, everyday nitrogen breathing alien from another planet who is currently on Earth on "assignment".

A: I live on the planet Earth, which is the third planet of the Sol system, at the end of the Orion Spur of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Mudding in general:

Q: How did you first get in contact with Ages of Despair?
A: I did a search on MUD's from the Google search engine. it was the only one i found there that was online.

A: I log on at least every couple of days. the other people on the mud have become familiar with me and probably have stories.

Q: Have you met any fellow mudders in RL?
A: Nope!

Game specific:

Q: What was your first kill and if you ever died, what was the first thing that killed you?
A: The first thing i killed was a little white mouse, who put up quite a good fight, actually. the first thing that killed me was this weird, lost hermit named Thomas who lives in this evil maze that i never go into anymore.

Q: Did you ever get killed by a ("the") horrible creature?
A: I got killed by an evil, drow high priestess during an invasion once. i am plotting my revenge as we speak.

Q: Who is your favourite and most hated npc respectively?
A: My flavourite(tm) npc is the head priest who gives me all my higher levels, and my most hated npc is the annoying Nirem who is always on the roads on the island of Avalon. he seems to teleport all over the place and tell you weird things, but i don't kill him because he is good.

Q: What is the funniest/strangest thing that ever happened to you on AoD?
A: Discovering the cigarettes in the chest in the [censored]. you can actually smoke them, but i doubt that they will give you cancer.

A: I really don't think so. i don't think i have any really good equipment.

Q: Do you have a "special place" where you like to hang out, a private corner so to speak?
A: I like to hang out in the forests of Avalon and "commune" with all of the wonderful woodland beings there.
Psychobob gently lowers his fingertip down onto his nipple and caresses it lightly.

Q: How much of your time on AOD do you spend hanging out or chatting compared with exping?
A: I probably spend about 90% of my time exping. i chat sometimes when i am waiting for the fairy to Avalon, and i really liked Shadowfangs trivia games, but he hasn't had one of those in awhile.

Q: What is the best thing about Ages of Despair?
A: It is a well done and thought out and programmed mud, and the people are pretty funny.

A: Total mud domination and to find a really good pint of ale.

A: Read the newbie manual before you start playing and asking the other players a lot of questions.

Q: How many friends/family play?
A: None that i am aware of.

Q: Favourite quote?
A: The grand turk asks baron munchausen if he has any last words, and the baron says, "not yet?" then the grand turk says, "'not yet! is that famous?"
Psychobob does the disco duck.

A: Interview Fievr cuz he thinks i am a crazed, whacked out lunatic and i think he should have to be subjected to this third degree since i was. hah!

Q: Give me one question that you would like me to ask him?
A: If you are standing on the ground looking at a train that is going 75% the speed of light, and you saw on top of that train a main running in the same direction as the train who was also travelling at 75% of the speed of light relative to the train, then how fast would the man be travelling from your perspective?
