||Robert Wesley Smith III
||Bobby, Rob, Spazzy, That Damn Cat, Spaz
|How did I get my name?:
||Well it all starts in the game Archmage, a rather interesting text-based strategy game. My usual name was "MasterMage", but at one point, it was taken. So I chose the name StarStorm. The rather long nick I have in the chat (StarStorm_the_Spazzy_Fuzzball) is because my online "avatar" is a cat, and I'm a bit of a spaz.
||22 (Birthdate: July 24, 1981)
||Male. Very Male.
||Unemployed/Amateur Author/Cute Kitty Cat of RPGC/Weiila's Boyfriend
||Not sure. Moderate I suppose.
||Weiila, Games, Pizza, My friends, Screwing around with idiots, Reading, Writing, Weiila, Cats, Catgirls... did I mention Weiila? I don't know how to describe them all.
||Idiots, Fanatics, Political Correctness, People who hurt others for no reason, Narrow-minded people... I don't know how to describe them all either.
||I'm pretty introspective and self-knowledgeable. I can get things done if I put my mind to it. I'm also not a very jealous person and can be quite laid-back.
||I'm lazy. VERY lazy. Almost self-destructively so. I'm depressive, and I smoke. I know I should quite but still. I'm also quite weak-willed... usually. But I do have a bit of a temper, but it takes a lot to rouse it.
||Final Fantasy 4, Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Seiken Densetsu 3, Tales of Phantasia... How do I choose?
||Hmm I generally prefer video game music.
||The Goonies, Gremlins 2, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, The Princess Bride, The Indiana Jones Trilogy, Super Mario Brothers, Men In Black, among other things.
||The Harry Potter series, the Animorphs Series, The Support Your Local Wizard Trilogy, starting to like Terry Pratchett.
||How did I join RPGC?:
||Well, I wrote my first fanfic (Enter A Warmage, FF4) and found the RPGC fanfic archive sometime later. I started reading, and enjoyed Weiila's fanfics, so I requested mine be posted. Mazrim posted it, and a few moths later, I sent a fanmail to Weiila saying how much I loved her work and to ask if she read mine. This started an email dialogue between us, and she lured me to the boards. The rest is history.
||Favorite excuse for not shrining when I should be:
||Games, simple as that.
||Reason why I chose to shrine Might and Magic 7:
||I loved the game, and after my failed attempts to shrine Goden Sun and Heroes of Might and Magic 3, I chose the game since it was available, and I really wanted to be staff.
||Future plans in RPGC:
||I'd like to retake the HoM&M3 shrine, as well as become Fanfic Archive maintainer.
||Catgirls or Angels?:
||I love Catgirls, but Weiila's my Angel. Angels all the way, Catgirls coming a close second. If I could combine both...
||What's my favorite cartoon?:
||Not sure actually.
||Swords or Maces:
||Maces are cool, but I prefer swords. Claws are better though.
||How did I get such an adorable girlfriend? And are you going to get married?:
||Got lucky I guess. *laughs* I just asked her one day (on my birthday) if she loved me. Things went from there.And will we get married? I'd lvoe to, but you never know. One prays though.
||Can I pet you?:
||You exist only to pet me. So get with the petting.
||What kind of cat are you?:
||What is the airspeed of a Gamecube-laden swallow?:
||Depends on the height. From high enough, it's terminal velocity. *laughs*.
||What is my quest?:
||To find a job, make a good living for myself, and eventually my wife and children.
||Where would you live besides Sweden?:
||Not sure. I like it in Michigan.
||Moogle or Chocobo and why?:
||Chocobos. While Moogles are cool, Chocobos are more utilitarian.
||What happened to your sig and your cool avatar? The pissed off cat in the avatar is all right but the sword wielding kitty was kick butt!:
||I found my current avatar on the Dominic Deegan boards, thought it was cool and I was due for an avatar change. By the way, the "sword-weilding kitty" was a rakasha, a creature from indian myth, and a very very evil creature. If I recall anyway..
||What things used to be like in your newbie days?:
||Hmm don't remember. The ToB was acutally funny, and just... many many things. I have a shitty memory.
||Who's your favorite fanfic author, and why?:
||Weiila and Archone. I generally consider them to be the best I've read, and it's they who drew me in (although Archone never replied to my fanmail... probably a good thing in this case).
||What kind of RPG suits your tastes the most?:
||I generally prefer the classic Final Fantasy-style RPG. Although improvements and variations are nice. I'm not closed to other ideas..
||What's the secret to a carefree cheerfulness?:
||Hard to describe. I have my moments. But realizing that there's a lot I can't control and not worrying about them, like people. Knowing myself, and what makes me sad, and working those things out. Many things. It's hard to decribe. I have a lot of depressed moments, mind you. I just don't show them often. Ask Weiila if you want to know.
||Which things do you like the most about this place?:
||The community, definately. It HAS changed over time, but I don't feel it has deteriorated like other places. RPGC has had it's moments, but it usually recovered.
||And finally, my works:
||Enter A Warmage, Legend of the Reptites, Second Sun (incomplete, updates on the Media Board) and An Islander Christmas. Check my forum signature and the Media Board for my incompletes.
