GuildWars is my first CORPG. I tried MMORPGs and didn't enjoy them. Computer RPGs are shallow mockeries of pen and paper RPGs in terms of role-playing anyway, and I despise the term "RPG" when referring to them - you play no more of a role in Guild Wars than you do in Counterstrike or Day of Defeat - if you ran around pretending to actually be a soldier while playing Day of Defeat you'd be role playing; hitting monsters in a fantasy setting isn't.
I began role-playing in 1980 I believe, with my first Dungeons and Dragons set, the Basic edition - I quickly moved on to other versions. To date I've played dozens of forms of pen and paper role-playing, and while I no longer actively do so I know most of the systems out there. As for computers, my first gaming was on a Kaypro 2, but I bought myself a TI99/4a shortly after, and fell in love with the dungeon crawl in Tunnels of Doom
I became a Magic: The Gathering player when the Arabian Nights expansion had just left shelves; the age of overpowered cards was waxing, with Moxes and Black Lotuses everywhere, and the metagame was just starting to form; decks were largely thrown together, with Shivan Dragons roaming free, Nightmares stampeding and the power of Channel + Fireball just raising its head. One of my early decks got a 2nd round kill in a local tournement, with a multiply giant growthed Llanowar Elf Beserking across the board to demolish my enemy. Ah, the good old days. I played MtG for ages, hence the enormous appeal of team building and the metagame in Guild Wars. Not surprisingly, my taste in decks changed, from the early quick-kill green and red decks I loved to the subtle blue-white and blue-black (and later, blue-green) decks that could control the play without the need for overpowered monstrosities or weenie hordes.
I got into online gaming recently, and played in a Day of Defeat clan for years - actually, it ended up being the top ranked DoD clan on csports.net for about a year; Fraggers Central. Unfortunately, my interest in DoD waned, and with the release of DoD:Source was completely extinguished - I had hoped that it would revitalise my gaming, instead it was a horrible change to the game.
I heard about GW about a year and a half before release, on a Diablo II forum, and checked out the ANet page. Unfortunately, I was on vacation during E3 for everyone, and missed that chance, but have been in on every beta weekend and the halloween preview, so I've been playing now for over 2 years. I knew I would want a good home for my time in GW, and looked around for a guild that would suit me - luckily enough SoF was recruiting during the last beta weekends, and I joined up and haven't looked back.

Seems a bit ambitious to set out tasks for myself, so far just cleaning up some errors, adding tidbits and such.
Of particular interest is anything to do with ranger animal companions - you may see me poking around trying to iron things out there.
I realise many include this - so I'll try: Tetris L told me to make a page, so I stole a bunch from him (including his funky active-o-meter setup). I don't actually remember where I got everything, if I see something I like it gets put in, but I tend to stick to pretty simple things.
