    Hey folks!

    Just wanted to quickly introduce myself. Long time lurker, first time poster (i think). I've been playing diablo 2 since 2000 and been in love ever since. However I have always played bnet until about a year ago when I learned the benefits of SP with GoMule and RWM. I've played HC most my life but now in my 30s I'd like to play to have fun and relax a bit more so I plan on going SC and aiming for my first 99er (never gotten beyond 89HC) and maybe collect for Grail too. I just today wiped all my characters to get a fresh start.

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi and I am in no rush for these as I don't want to lose enjoyment out of all of this. Hope to provide updates along the way, going to start either Necro or Paladin.

    Thanks!

    Welcome!

    A few new faces (well, avatars?) reventoy, great to see. Check out the untwinked 99er tournament. There are other fun tournaments too in the sticky, and we also host fairly regular tournaments such as magic find olympics, tune finding olympics and stuff like that. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and see you around

    *swipes waller*

    I’m tired from kicking all of the shins recently.

    Welcome!

    Well if @Kitteh is too tired to kick some shins, I’ll take the opportunity to kick my first pair. *kicks shins*

    Edit: and like kitteh said, check out the untwinked tourney, since you’re starting over you’re already untwinked as it is :)

    I've decided on Necro for the nakedness for lack of a better term. And hopping over to the untwinked 99er right after this post :). I've just always personally loved the Pally, was my first every character and i lost count how many zealers I've made. I think its the lore i enjoy the most.

    Welcome! There's got to be a story behind your username - you even have a custom logo to go with it!

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Yes, it's an inside joke really. About 12 years ago when Halo 3 was released a close friend and I did your usual all day long gaming session that involved gaming, pizza, and beers. We were not the 'fittest' at the time and I made a joke to him about his weight (I wasn't much lighter but we can handle these insults to one another). It had been a while since he weighed himself so I asked if we could both guess our weights before stepping on a scale. His guess was about 17 lbs shy of his actual weight. His response was "but I just had some pizza!" and I responded with "not a 17 pound pizza". So since then it's been a little joke of ours. Years later it turned into a call-sign of mine and the logo is my creation and is a result of me using the name for my twitch channel.

    I like the back-story. Always neat when things like that have a history. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, and welcome (to you and all the other new arrivals)!

    Welcome! May your skeleton army follow your marching orders, and your Revives wander a little less than mine do. :p

    I spent many stayovers playing halo with a couple of friends, and I can confirm that pizza was involved :)
