Having just been infesting the Bethesda forums and asking to have my photo changed, it occurs to me that I don't know what anybody here looks like. Well, I mean other than the indisputable fact that everyone looks exactly like their avatar.

So here's a topic to rectify that, should anybody be enough of an exhibitionist to do so. It's always nice to put a face to a name, after all (or even a name to a name... mine's Christine, even though people tend to call me Vom/Vommie/Vometia anyway).

Here's mine, the same one I'm currently using for my avatar. Yay, lens flare! It got confused about the exposure thanks to the sun coming out through the window behind me. "Smile", people keep saying to me. That is a smile, at least the best I can manage when there's a camera pointed at me.

The Divinity box lurking behind my head is actually accidental, in spite of looking suspiciously like a product placement.

Ahh the old Bethesda boards, I remember the old Beth boards.... infact it's been so long I don't even remember what my forum handle is. ouch

But since you mentioned Bethesda boards and photos in the same sentence, you just dun gone made me do it...



They call me Jason *waves*

And never mind the strange product placement in the back, have no idea where that came from... honest! evil

Also gave me an idea for a new forum icon too, now I really do look like my avatar! hahaha

Hi there! I'm Julian!



I'm from Texas, and I've been playing the Original Sin series since DOS classic. I am a college student, double majoring in History as well as Computer Science. It's nice to meet you all!

Edit: Oh gosh, the picture turned out huge!!! How do I tone it down?

Yay, another person makes an appearance! It's always cool to put a face to a name. I'm normally not too bad at guessing what someone looks like but hadn't managed to do so this time ("they look so young these days", etc).

I usually use Gimp to resize stuff, or ImageMagick if I'm in a command-line mood. I think sites like imgur automatically resize for you, and failing any of them, I can do it for you if that would help.

Thanks for the offer! I thought about it, and I've decided against resizing it. I prefer when I can see every individual follicle on someone's forehead, and I'm sure others feel the same.

For the record, I'm totally 22, I just don't look it! And by the way, what did you think I looked like?

I dunno, really: whatever it was, I think I realised I was probably being influenced by my own avatar glaring at me. I'm just surprised to see other people who look happy and not like they've just fallen out the wrong side of bed. biggrin

Yeah, I've been told that I'm the happiest person they know by a lot of people. Even these forums make me really happy, even if it doesn't seem like it. (maybe that's just because I like to argue, though)

I think a lot of people consider a good argument to be the spice of life. Personally, I prefer chocolate; even though it's not a spice, it's a vitamin.

Yay, nice to see another of us more mature gamers on the forum. smile Actually, I just realised that "mature" is about the last word I should use to describe myself, but y'know.

Lol, me neither. Acting half my age is something I see nothing wrong with. Some of my family members disagree with that however smile

Hey man, lookin' good! The white hair suits your sassy look. I've always wanted white hair myself. smile My Grandpa has it, so it runs in the family, meaning I have a decent chance.

Sorry, I somehow failed to spot you were also such a young 'un because I'm sometimes not the most observant person. So "get off my lawn", etc. biggrin

My hair has also been misbehaving for many years. In the last five (so yeah, since my mid 40s, ahem) I've been regularly dying it and will continue to do so pretty much forever. I usually choose the rather vaguely named "Arizona Copper" but went for my natural colour in that photo, which also features a bit of a Sera hairdo: it was annoying me so I employed the services of the kitchen scissors to reduce the level of irritation by erratically increasing the level of my fringe. My hairdresser was appalled that I'd committed such vandalism, or at least that I'd done it unsupervised.

Nah, I didn't bother dying it. Neither did my stepmother who is sat at the side of me.

I can be found very well hidden on RPGWatch.

I seem to be getting too old and lazy for finding "very well hidden". biggrin Also newish picture, still fat, still can't smile when there's a camera pointed at me.

Also the late, great Bob Ross is posting here? Awesome, if slightly perturbing.
