    You can blame Gnoff and the Awesomevång brothers (Tobias&Fredrik) for us not being gentle with the Swedes. :lol:

    Viva Espana ! Welcome.

    Some years I will visit Barcelona, but until now I have not done. Eventually, an interesting concert for me is already taking place there and I'll finally get to see Barcelona.

    Thanks! We have lots of good concerts in Barcelona, but usually it's not something you wouldn't be able to see somewhere else in Europe. This month we've had Volbeat, Amorphis and Satyricon among others. Last concert for me was this Tuesday: Persefone, Andromeda, Damnation Angels and Until Rain.

    An concert in spring or summer would be better, but next year I think, we spend enough money for festivals (70.000 Tons, Metaldays and some in Germany), so perhaps in 2015. Who knows.

    Thanks!!! I'm just crossing fingers and hoping for nice announcements to come soon, as my mood and motivation about this once-in-a-lifetime experience has been dramatically decreasing for the past months... but I'm sure it will end up being something huge.

    See you in Miami!

    Hello to all you forum people...
    I've been reading these hallowed pages for some time now, and finally decided to register.
    2014 will be my first 70K... and I can't wait to board (broad?) this apocalyptic cruise, help you decimate the ship's alcohol stores and listen to some really awesome music.

    City/country:
    Braunschweig, Germany

    Age (optional):
    39

    What first got you into metal?
    An (older) friend of mine came up with some Iron Maiden Albums when I was about 12 or 13. The rest is history.
    ...
    Over the decades, I listened to power, thrash, symphonic and gothic metal as well as punk and arrived at mostly melodeath during the past years. But I'm not single-minded and like many sub-genres.
    My once-long hair has fallen victim to age and safety issues on the job (fast turning machines + long hair = courting disaster)

    Play any instruments?
    Well, what I'm really good at is AWFUL SINGING. ;)
    No, making music isn't my thing. But I'm quite experienced at listening to it.

    Top 5 bands?
    DARK TRANQUILLITY!!! (Hell yeah!) :wank:
    Zonaria
    Be'lakor
    Equilibrium
    ...and many more - can't decide which ones to highlight right now. Depends on mood.

    What do you do?
    I'm a self-employed knife designer, -maker and Damascus Steel smith.

    What do you like to do in your spare time?
    Pen&paper roleplaying, target shooting

    I'm looking forward to an unforgettable experience with all you people. You'll recognize me by the namesake Root Of All Evil hanging about my neck...
    For aeons it lay dormant... waiting... plotting for the End of Days... until I finally unearthed from the bowels of my fridge.


    Metal on!
    Yours sincerely,
    The Root

    As I'm into RPGs for about 30 years now, me and my friends have played countless different systems, with D&D/AD&D, GURPS and the german Midgard being the most prominent.
    For the last 5 years in the "surviving" group we have switched to the "D20 Cthulhu" system, with a real-world, nowadays setting involving supernatural aspects, in some ways similar to the "KULT" RPG, which I think is from Sweden. (Like X-Files, only much crazier... metal music has been playing a major part in my storyline so far :headbanger: )
    Really cool, because the world is tangible and everyone can imagine really well what's going on. Plus, as I'm GMing most of the time, I like the fact that Wikipedia and Google Maps help provide A LOT of very dense background. There's tons of strange incidents, wacky historical persons and insane conspiracy theories etc., wich are easily fleshed out and taken for plot ideas.

    So, what do you play?

    If we are to go into details, we should probably do this in the "Off Course" section to keep this thread free of our "fringe hobby ramble" :D

    Have any of you tried the FATE system? I played a little bit of it a while ago and found it awesome. Far more centered in the story than in the stats. And easier to GM.

    I mostly play CoC. I've tried the "new" rules a frew times but that was very confusing :)
    Also tried Cthulhutech and I like it. The classic version is my favourite.
    I dont know if Kult is from Sweden,( it's fun) but I've played Mutant and that I know is Swedish.

    Hehe! Now I've taken this off topic, sorry guys!

    We have played the classic CoC for some time, but didn't like the rule system very much. Same goes for Kult: a REALLY cool background story, but the game mechanics are kind of awkward. So we decided to make the best of it all and used the Cthulhu D20 rules combined with a Kult-like world scenario which I expanded and altered in some ways. I like the philosophical aspects of that scenario, where there is no clearly defined "good" or "evil", but everything is grey and the players have all freedom to decide for themselves what path to take. This has gone so far that at some points I (as the GM) could just sit back and relax while the players would spend an entire gaming session in heated discussion on how to decide on certain matters. For example, at the climax of the previous campaign the question was: "Should we do this and plunge the world into chaos, with possibly fatal outcome, but probably also many chances to improve things... or better leave everything as it is right now?" - Fun aplenty!
    I perceive the rules to be helpers, they should not dominate gameplay, but underline storytelling in a comfortable way. The D20 System was the best we could find for that purpose, plus, as we played Fantasy D&D Edition 3.5 for several years, which is very similar, the players had no trouble learning a new set of rules.

    But...

    THAT sounds really interesting. I have to admit, I didn't know about that game before you mentioned it... from a quick glance at the Wikipedia description I think it's avery unique and cool concept. I'll surely get a copy and have a closer look... maybe I can persuade my "crew" to switch.
    Thanks a lot!

    Hi Alex, Tony is my name (male), the group i'm travelling with will have 'Amerigeddon' and 'Amerigeddon II' shirts on so you should see us around. There will be 5 of us all from Queensland. We have named our trips and made our own shirts. I tried uploading an avatar but won't work for some reason.

    I'm looking forwards to a new Nightwish album with Floor, she's excellent!!!!

    Hello everyone!
    Like most of the others, I figured since the cruise is coming up (finally!!!!) I should probably introduce myself instead of just being a creeper in the forum. I'm also quite shy, so hopefully this will help with that. I can't wait until next month! \m/


    City/country:
    Oregon, USA

    Age (optional):
    25

    What first got you into metal?
    I think I was about 12 years old, and was digging through my dad's old albums when I found Metallica's Black Album. And it has been a journey of classic rock and metal since then! \m/

    Play any instruments?
    I used to play the violin, although I haven't in years. Now I just sing when no one else is around haha.

    Top 5 bands?
    Really? Only 5? This changes on a weekly, if not daily basis. But for right now, here goes, in no particular order:
    Pantera
    Omnium Gatherum
    Arch Enemy
    Deep Purple
    Dark Tranquility

    What do you do?
    I work as a property manager for affordable and supportive communities. Affordable= we try to give quality housing to those with very little income as the US has crap wages, generally speaking. Supportive housing= communities that are meant for those with mental illness, chronic homeless, substance abuse, or victims of domestic abuse. It's very tough, but rewarding. I am also a full time student getting my Bachelor's in Business. And a mother of spawnlings. And I maintain a pervy, sarcastic personality behind a businesslike front.


    What do you like to do in your spare time?

    Hahahaha! I'm not sure what that is...but, when it does happen, I love to read, hike, kayak, play Skyrim, etc.

    What deck are you on?
    5

    What's a creepy thing I can say when I see you that no stranger should know and will weird you out that I do?

    It most definitely will help. Also, and this goes to all newbies, I'd recommend setting up an avatar that actually looks like you for the forum. That way even if you are shy or socially awkward the other forum folks will recognize you and come talk to you. I changed my avatar to one the one I still have before the 2012 cruise and was surprised how many people walked up to me and said "Hey, you're Chewie from the forum!". Coming from Finland being socially awkward is a given, so being a part of this forum group really made a difference on the whole cruise experience.

    Also, make sure you come to the basketball court for the forum meet!

    There's a maximum size but if you hotlink it to somewhere like facebook you get a bit more to work with. I think you can use facebook to crop photos as well. Or just get one of our local photoshoppers to do it :mrgreen:
