    Age: Old enough to know better
    Location: Ayr, Scotland

    NWN Experience: Ever since it was first launched, both as player and GM
    Occupation: Training Consultant
    Characters Played: Xaltotun, Acco, Rank Badyin, Eleandilethessa Quil'lyn

    What I like to see IG:
    •   GM interactions, especially when you are collecting stuff for crafting as it breaks the 'normal’ mould.
    •   Off the cuff scenarios that throw you something to think about or something to do.
    •   Being allowed to think 'outside the box’ by the GM so you are not just limited by your feats or skills.
    •   Seeing new lands and other stuff.
    •   Getting the bejasus scared out of me when I come across some new monster that I think I will never be able to get round.
    •   Playing with other people from all over  the world - what a buzz.

          Other considerations:
          My first learned language is french. I have learned english in secondary school (8th grade) and am now learning spanish.  You may find my english laborious.  If you notice incorrect sentences or conjugasions please let me know, in a tactfull manners, of course.

          What I like to see IG:
          Comradery, sharing, play (theateric, tragic, clown, etc.)

          What I dislike to see IG:
          1) endless chatting...  Would it be possible to have an IRC chamber to chat before coming in game?
          2) It's antipod... No reaction at all.  At least, if your character is muted or dumb let it know and express his/her feelings.
          3) You're in a party, you've loot something please identify it (or let know) who know's someone may need it.

           Login Name: Travelling_Minstrel
           Age: 23, though the mental age of a senile old man.
           Sex: Male
           Location: England.
           Timezone: Er... Englandy. GMT.
           NwN Experience: A year or so.
           PnP Experience: A few games over the course of a year during my teens.
           Occupation: Student.
           Characters Played: Here? Or everywhere? Well, here I've just reborn an NPC as a real character, after giving him a fresh coating of backstory. Venny Pallens.
           What I like to see IG: In-town Roleplay. Characters that develop through actions more than levels. OOC problems solved quickly without needing DM's. Every character being much, much more than a simple combination of class, race, and alignment. People with real goals and roles, above and beyond getting the next level. Gelatinous cubes.
           What I dislike to see IG: (So much... :P ) Things that break immersion, like people running through towns and resting in the middle of the road. OOC bickering that gets nothing solved. Clique groups. Excessive levelling at the expense of real RP and plot. Excessive use of rolls without RP backing it. Metagaming, dungeon premonition, Badly-played Clerics, Greatswords, Badly-played Clerics with Greatswords, powerbuilds, dump stats. Evil equalling Rude, Good equalling Polite. PvP = Evil. People ignoring RP in favour of XP.... (Yeah, and I wonder why I left my last servers.:\\ )

          Alignment RL: Chaotic Neutral.

          What I HATE to see IG:
          1.Non-descriptive characters unless they are an uncommon race, in which case it would help to see if they were this race or that race.

          2.Meta-gamers (full coverage excluding the need to exit the game for personal matters).

          3.Hackers, Cheaters, Bad Gamesmen, Racists, Griefers and Bad DM's.

          4.Txt tlk, anything that interrupts a good bit of RP. Excessive Romance and Catchphrases.

          5.(final one) Anybody with the username: Thunderlamb DM. (Personal reasons :) )

          What I love IG: The opposite of the above. Oh and people who care for the player and their feelings.:)

          Location: Copenhagen, Denmark (though Portuguese)
          Timezone: GMT+1 (Copenhagen)

          NwN Experience: Started playing NWN mid 2001, have 8 years on Legends of Chance action server, joined Layo 2010 by advice of geloooo.

          PnP Experience: D&D pnp player since 12 yo, DM since 14 yo. Nothing beats good ol' pnp D&D, specially edition 3.5 (mixed with 3.0 spells). Don't like "pre-made worlds and pre-made quests"... way too bottled up to be funny. I make my own worlds and then the players quest on it to whatever they wish to do... I just make the world flow with events but they do whatever they want!

          Occupation: MSc student in Enterprise Information Systems and Information Technologies (looking for a part-time btw! :P)

          Characters Played: Morunas Khan Val, Lum and hopefully soon... Jinxy Lil'Branch.

          What I like to see IG: Story flow coherence, DMs guidance/events, entertainment, good environment, dedicated LORE-rich RP, no "just xp grinding", system complexity, customized appearance.  

          What I dislike to see IG: Only few players :( reasonless xp grinding :/ NWN visual limitations (can't fly... can't swim... can't jump... can't pass through walls... can't dig and go underground... can't climb...)... but REAL ig stuff it's rare to not like in Layo :) everybody RPs good enough for me ^^ who am I to critic ;)

          Why I keep coming back: Good entertainment, good environment, BEST approach to D&D I EVER found (BETTER then DDO) and one of the great factors... awesome GM and LORE support ;) hurray for Layonara

          NwN Experience: None.

          PnP Experience: None. Before Layo, I've played L4D, Halo, Animal Crossing (hey, don't give me that look, :o  I know you've played it before..hehehe), etc.. mostly cooperative shooting games.  

          Occupation: Business Student, hoping to take my GMAT next year.

          Characters Played: Kylie Copperstone & Esme Minniwyn

          What I like to see IG: More cooking recipes, more charc's emotes, more clothing options, more houses available to be purchased, PvP (haven't seen any yet, maybe a few will spice things up? :rolleyes: ), quests, and random travel/exploring trips with great party.

          What I dislike to see IG: Rude players that have no respect for others, yes, we all know it's RP and if your charc is a jerk, so be it but don't force your ideas/opinions on others OOCly too, it's disgusting! Ignorance is not bliss. Being stuck at the same lvl of crafting due to lack of resources.. *sigh* anyone would like to donate an emerald for me to practice gem cutting? :p
