    TurinT's Intro

    The Beginning:

    A long time ago TurinT saw his freshman roomate playing a very interesting computer game called Diablo 2. He asked his roomate about the game and watched as a whirlwinding Barb sliced down demons and monsters. TurinT decided that Diablo 2 would be quite fun! He picked up a copy that Christmas and started a single player necromancer. It would be his first, and for a time last, SP character...

    The Journey:

    TurinT decided one day that playing online on Battle.net would be interesting!
    He played mostly Amazons and Sorcs, and dabbled in Paladins and Assassins. He saw how easy it was to get around with a Sorceress and started finding lots of Unique and Set items. TurinT then became obsessed with MF runs and general Loot-*****'ing. Some people were nice on the realms, others weren't. The lag monster would eat his characters every now and again but overall, life in Diablo 2 was good. Two years had passed, but now real life was starting to catch up with him. TurinT was studying Chemical Engineering at college, played Trombone in an orchestra and jazz ensemble and was an officer in a Fencing club. Diablo 2 and real life were not mixing well. So TurinT decided to take a break from D2 and focus on his studies and other hobbies. He did well and made it into Graduate school to study Nanotechnology.

    The End is the Beginning:

    TurinT was bored one day during Christmas break after his first semester in Graduate school. He thought, "I really miss playing D2 and all of the phat loot...". He played on the realms and saw many interesting changes in the game itself. But over a couple months he realized that the people were not as nice, the lag monster had only grown in strength and that cheating had become more rampant. TurinT decided it was time yet again for another D2 change...

    And so here I am, where the end is the beginning. I installed RWM and ATMA (which is a very cool program) and started my SP necro, Skellie_Bellie, who I shamefully admit I leveled to 30, even though I should be studying for a rather big exam. Anyhows, I'm 23 and live on the East Coast. Diablo 2 is my reprieve from the math and science that makes my head hurt. I still play the good ole T'Bone and am currently looking for a good Fencing club. I realize this is a very long intro thread, but I had a few good laughs writing it, so I hope everyone in the SPF can relate and enjoy!

    Also welcome to the SPF! And I thought your intro was great (unlike mine) :embarassed:.

    Watch out for the shinkickers, they should be along soon. I'm too new to be able to pass you a couple of shinguards but you may get lucky if someone who does have them comes before the shinkickers do.

    Great intro thread,an interesting read.
    Welcome!
    Try not to neglect your studies or your RL activities,because of D2.I know it can be difficult (or easy for you,depends on everyone's self-control),but as you already know
    studies >> d2

    EDIT:
    /OT
    @neumein: No offense,but highschool is 100 times more easy than nanotechnology studies.

    Welcome to the SPF man.

    Yes, be careful of people kicking your shins, and also be wary of people stealing your drinks at the bar. (Newcomers like us are popular targets) Read the SPF FAQ to learn what the heck I'm on about =P

    Anwyays, in regards to you feeling shame about levelling your character to 30 before an exam, don't worry about it. I played Diablo II all through my final year of high school, and still did fine. Just be reasonable with it though.

    Looking forward to forum'ing (I make up pointless words) with you soon

    Very much agreed on all points.


    Hi, and welcome to the SPF (trythemultiplayersometimes,it'sgreat)

    Be sure to read the stickies, and especially the SPF FAQ, which should help translate some of the more unusual idiom.

    Also, drop by the etdlahq memorial bar for a free rejuvie for your shins, and a free drink(or more) of your choice to wash down the nasty taste.

    nanotech is cool... did a really basic course on it

    You're all wrong! Trombonist => D2 => both at once => Madman!

    Welcome to the forums TurinT, good to see another kind of 'Boner wandering the forums rather than the usual necromancer sort.
