     Just wanted to pop in and say hi. I'm not generally the type to post on any sort of forum, but the community here seems very welcoming, so I figured I'd give it a shot. 

    My name is Donal. I've been into games since my mother won a TurboGrafx-16 in a Christmas raffle at our community laundromat, ages ago. Console gaming has always been the most easily accessible for me but, as a teenager, I discovered my love for the communities that can be built around games, when my parents brought home our first family PC. 

    I started by simply roleplaying in an old D&D chatroom called 'The Crossroads Tavern' before discovering 'Legends of Cosrin', a text-based MUD that I played almost exclusively for about four years. My first experience with an MMO was World of Warcraft (of course), which I played from launch for two years, before I enlisted in the Navy and stepped away from the games for half a decade. 

    I've been a civilian for quite a few years now, got married, bought a house, bounced around from job to job for a while before finally deciding to start working with my wife at her small restaurant/bakery. 

    There haven't been any games that have enraptured me in such a way as when I was younger, though I've definitely played my fair share in the years since. Mostly, I just work. Family businesses tend to take over every aspect of your life, I've found.

    I don't have very many friends these days, mostly just family (my mother and all of the in-laws). Without intending to seem desperate or pathetic, I guess I've been searching for a place to belong for quite some time. So here I am. 

    I'm excited and hopeful for what this game might become, and the community that is building around it; and I'm honored to have been able to pledge, to be a part of it.

    This took a turn that I wasn't quite expecting but I've committed to typing it out, so I might as well finish.

    If you read this, thank you. Here's to a future that is bright.

    Welcome to the zoo!

    This IS a very friendly community, despite the occasional 'intense exchange of ideas' lol.

    We owe a lot of it to our ever-watchful moderator, Kilsin. You'll meet him later, I'm sure :)

    Due to the nature of Pantheon, we probably have a community with more middle-age and older players than most game forums. That helps keep the drama down some too.

    Glad you joined us, hope to see you in the game.

    Hey Donal, welcome! The long and winding road to get here is one most of us can relate to. Happy you made it!

    Welcome! Glad you've convinced yourself to type here ;-) Any prefered class yet? From your nick I have a strong feeling that it's a bard though.

    I guess the name is a little on the nose, haha. 

    Bard, definitely. Fingers-crossed that it's available on release! 

    Anything support/utility, but I have a soft spot for rogues.
