Hey again, everyone.
It’s been a bit hellish for me since I last updated. Stressful daily living, extremely difficult college classes, and the clusterfuck that was BioWare’s excuse for Mass Effect 3’s ending. Plus, looking back on my previous profile update, I came across as a first-rate douche bag. So, here’s a more polite, and more personal take on this Eothr Si’lan.
Pen name: Eothr Si’lan. I came up with it almost a decade ago when I began the process of reading and writing fanfiction. It’s a mixture of Tolkeinian and my own personalization. Eothr is pronounced much like the people of Rohan, like Eomer and Eowyn. The “E” is pronounced as a long “A” and the “thr” is pronounced like “thur” in Thursday. The “Si’lan” is a hybrid of “silver land”, but the “a” in “lan” is a short a, like the “ah” sound.
Personality: I’m a Gemini, born in the Year of the Dragon. My elemental affinity is Earth. I’m an only child with self-diagnosed Asperger’s Disorder. I like video games, Oriental food, and dark horse fanon romances. I dislike physical labor, tequila, and Harry Potter. My hobbies include listening to the Critical Hit Dungeons and Dragons Podcast, gaming, and reading fanfiction. My dream for the future is to one day start my own video game development company, Tsuchi Ryuu Yuugi (“Earth Dragon Games”).

-Addendum- Need to rethink my challenge before I put it up again
For any and all who love D&D and RPGs,
I listen to a podcast called Critical Hit: A Major Spoilers Dungeons and Dragons Podcast. It’s a live-play D&D 4E podcast put on by the Major Spoilers crew, and is completely free. If you like D&D or RPGs in general, check it out. Episode 3, Dramatis Personae, starts off with character creation for the n00b Stephen Schleicher, Major Spoilers founder, with the group’s Dungeon Master Rodrigo Lopez; Episodes 4-7 introduce 3 of the party members and Episode 8, In the Ruins of Moonhold, the final group set out on their Heroic Tier quest to save the world! The entire series is very comedic and educational, with a number of Q&A episodes, vignettes with B characters, a Dungeon Master’s Workshop between season’s 2 &3, and a few off-season specials involving other WotC D&D products and alternate campaigns. Check it out!
