Political party/affiliation: what? In MEXICO? No thank you.

Education: I'm not sure of the equivalencies of my credentials, but I studied 4 years in a university so... either a Bachelor's or a Major on Gastronomy, specialized on the Industry Management.

Hobbies/Activities: Besides Gaming!? Gah... well, I think it might be surfing the internet. Drawing, reading books and mangas. ;D

Just to test the stereotype - Have you ever lived, or are you currently living, in your
parents' basement?
In Mexico, we don't have basements, but I'm currently living with my mother. My boyfriend and I are saving money for moving out together, so it's taking some time.

What is your favorite way to spend a weekend? Playing D&D on saturdays and going to the movies on Sundays!

Which of your accomplishments are you the most happy with? I wrote a fantasy novel. I'm trying to get it published but Latin America is not very into Fantasy. :(

What is the most frightening thing you've ever done? One day
when I was 10 an earthquake hit the city where I lived. We were in
the 3rd floor of a not so well constructed building. My mother, my
little sister and me were in the door archway wondering if we could
make it to the door crossing all the hallway without the floor falling
down. We ran for the door and went down the stairs safely. The
building was undamaged but it was really frightening.

How many languages do you speak? English and Spanish. I started
to study japanese but just got the basics.

What was your first word?
"Mama", then "aba mimon" as in "Agua de Limon". Lemonade. I wouldn't drink milk from the bottle so my mother had to give me Lemonade instead. :P

What is your favorite time of year, and why? I believe winter, because is the only time of the year here when I'm not dying for the heat.

What is your most prized physical possession? I have a ragdoll since I was 4 years old. I love her.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My back. I have scoliosis so it sucks.

Did you have any embarassing nicknames as a kid? My gosh, where to begin? Hare, Slipper, Mantis, Spiky... Gremling, Critter. I had ADHD and people here do not really understand why your kid is running around and you can't control them.

What was your favorite toy as a child? Uhm... Difficult. I had a small toy farm... also a Barbie house and cute T-rex.

What makes you cry? Sad movies about children. I cried my self out with "Children of Men".

What is your favorite section of the newspaper? International Section.

What are three things you can't live without? Internet. Games. MY DICES!

If you could have one superpower, which power would you pick? It would be really great if I could fly.

What did you want to be when you grew up? Vet, Astronaut, a CEO.

If you could pick any other time period to live in - including the future - which would it
be, and why?
That's a tricky one. If I could see how the earth is in the future before I can decide, I would go to the future as long as we aren't invaded by aliens or FUBAR Earth. Hopefuly, they'll get practical spaceships! ;D

What is one thing that you regret that you would go back and change if you could? There are many things I wished I didn't do. But that's what defines me as I am now. In any case, it would have been writing down all my classmates phone numbers and addresses. I moved a lot so I never really get to have many friends.

What is the one thing you want to do before you die? FAME AND FORTUNE! Mwahahahah!... ehem... I mean, I want to publish my novels and touch someone's life with it. If Twilight had this effect on our young...

You've just purchased a small island off the coast of any continent of your choosing, and you are preparing to start your own country there. What does your flag look like? I'll would ask my friends to help me with the design... they are DESIGNERS. LOL I'll give a wild guess and say it will have some spirals and circles. xD

Tell us about your favorite RPG character that you've ever played. Well, there
are two characters I'm very fond of and they are somewhat related by blood.

It was in one of our first games, we hadn't found D&D yet and we were coming up
with systems on our own. The first one was a fighter girl who was in love of
one of the NPCS... but the NPC decided she was hysterical (LETS KICK
SOME ASS) and decided to hook up with the Wizard. She hated him for the
rest of her life for that. She ended up as Captain of the Empire's army, marrying
the King and then founding a city of survivors when the Evil Villain destroyed
their kingdom.

The second one was her descendant thousands or years latter (modern setting same world). He was a SWAT member but after some time talking to the other players we realized he was descendant of ALL our characters. We said he was like a very crazy dog mix, where you had dragon, elf, human, dwarf... then he was bitten by a werewolf so it was even funnier. He had very bad luck and we never managed to finish that adventure. We had a nuclear war head, we just needed to use it. xD http://yoski.deviantart.com/art/Jared-The-Malix-V2-0-27923963 (the best pic of him)

What are your favorite RPGs? D&D 3.5, and Pathfinder. In the videogame side: Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy.

What was your first RPG session like? Actually my first session was really weird. A friend of mine was the only one with previous D&D experience and he felt it was going to be hard to teach us all... so he came up with a pseudo roll system. Whoever rolled higher, hits. We were heavy with roleplaying, so it was fine for us.

What was your WORST RPG session like? What made it so bad? Uhm, lately it has been hard to play because my sister's boyfriend is so freaking CN. He gets bored quickly and leaves the table to play nDS or check some Flash game on the PC.

Who is your all-time favorite person to game with? Ismael. He has a very good understanding of team work and he stays in character. :D
