1) What is your main character's in-game name and how did you come up with it?

A) I decided to start fresh with PRotF and make a new name, rather than names of toons from previous games. At least for my main. I let my 12 yr old son help me. Originally I decided on Aetheon, but my son said I should take the second E out.Thus Aethon was born.. or... is going to be lol. See question 3's answer for more details.

2) What interests you the most about Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen?

A) To be honest, I play MMORPGs to live in a world that takes me away from this RL world, so immersion is KEY. It can be a fun game and will hold my attention for months, but if the immersion isn't there, I will tire of it and leave. I'm also big into graphics, which ties into immersion, so that a good looking game will be much appreciated as well. I am an artist of sorts as well, so sometimes I will just stand there and observe my surroundings and totally get into the art and the hard work it took to make it look so damned good. (Props art team) Finally, to beat a dead horse, Community, community, community! Having friends to play with and have shared memories with is awesome. IE "Remember the time so and so had his mage pet aggro the whole zone in Keasora, right as we got to Xalgoz, and we managed to stay alive for a good 20 minutes by the skin of our teeth only to fall victim to repops in the zone again, re-aggroing from the pet, before we could recover?" - "Good times."

3) What will your main race and class be and why?

A) I'm undecided as of yet, as it is still too soon to be 100 percent sure. But, I have so far narrowed it down to either Wizard or Enchanter for class and either Elf or Gnome for the race. This is why I wanted to come up with a name I thought would be suitable for either choice. As to the reasoning of class choices, I blame my wife; she says I have power and control issues! Wizard is the ULTIMATE POWWA and Enchanter of course is the CONTROL MASTER. As far as race goes and why it depends on the sliders in character creation, I'm very fond of the Elven lady and how Elves are portrayed in the races section of the website, but not the shorter new versions of elves. So if I am able to make them more tall and slender as I see fit, then they will be whom I choose. As well, the gnomes, if they are able to pull off making them distinguishable from one another, not looking like an Iron Man Hive Collective, then I will choose them.

4) What is your favorite system, mechanic or feature so far in Pantheon?

A) I will echo many others’ sentiments in saying it's hard to choose just one; you guys have plans for a great many features that will definitely be fun to have installed for making this game even more interesting and fun, not to mention engaging and immersive. But I would say for me, depending on how it all fleshes out, the perception system is the most interesting. I'm hoping it has the feel of when in Dungeons and Dragons, the Dungeon Master gives you a hint or tidbit of info that you can ignore or pursue and find more as you dive into its relevancy.

5) If you could enter the game and visit anywhere in Terminus for 1 hour, where would you go and why?

A) That's easy, Tower of the Reckless Magician! I really love towers for one. All the floors to clear and different challenges await, but also ALL those books and possibilities for perception pings or there being some wise sage locked in the tower awaiting some eager student to come to learn a rare or epic skill, spell, or ability. <<so excite>>

6) Finally, if you had the ability to pick one race to transform into from Pantheon, in real life, whenever you wanted, which would you choose and why?

A) Ogre for sure, there's ample opportunity to use that ugly mug and brute strength in the real world. Scare the kiddies, deal with that road rager who cut you off, win the strong man competition, pick up the chicks... err well maybe not that last one lol.
