Just to test the stereotype - Have you ever lived, or are you currently living, in your parents' basement? No - what am I, a dungeon troll?

How many languages do you speak? I speak two, know basics of one more and swear in additional four.

What is your favorite section of the newspaper? Tech/science curiosities - exoskeletons, robots, pants that stay warm, etc.

What are three things you can't live without? Internet, my mobile, and a Swiss Army knife.

If you could be one superhero, which hero would you be? Gambit from X-Men.

What is your favorite way to spend a weekend? Don the camo, load up my
toy guns, run around woods or derelict buildings and shoot the crap outta
my friends.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Policeman, of course...

What was your favorite toy as a child? Action figures. I have almost a
hundred of 'em!

If you could pick any other time period to live in - including the future - which would it be, and why? 1920s-1930s. Those were fun times.

Tell us about your favorite RPG character that you've ever played. Michael Archer Sterling (Vampire: the Masquerade v3) - a hundred-odd year old Brujah detective. Leather trenchcoat, black t-shirt, lots of guns - you know the type, lean mean rampage machine. But, as various Storytellers weren't giving me enough occasions to rapidly unload all the .45 ammo carried into anyone causing problems (not mentioning a looted stakegun made from a sawn-off over-under shotgun), Mike discovered another ability prized by screenwriters, pulp writers and videogame character designers: dry wit.

Viola: "There were some Nosferatu. Are they dangerous?"

Mike: "Not more than contents of a standard ashtray."

What are your favorite RPGs? Dungeons & Dragons 3E,
Vampire the Requiem, Vampire the Masquerade
, new World
of Darkness, Call of Cthulhu

What was your first RPG session like? MERP, at my friend's
house. I don't remember much of it. I just remember it sucked.

What was your WORST RPG session like? When a Dungeon Master takes
your whole stuff and none of it is magical or particularly expensive, you know that playing with him is not worth it.

Who is your all-time favorite person to game with? My ex-girlfriend. She does the thinking, I do the shooting. :D
