Greetings all!

Harmonia and I were talking about the forums (as we do every day) and we were thinking it would be great to have a new introductions thread! Not many of know me, and I'm sure Harmonia has some updates to her intro letter.

I've been on two livestreams so far, and will be co-hosting the Extra Life 24-hour streaming marathon this weekend. See me on the stream with Treeshark, Introducing Gothic Rapture outfits & Danicia, new CM and the Community Chat stream with Harmonia and I.

Let the intros and questions begin!

Hiya all! I've updated my original community introduction from when I first joined the team. I'm also adding a link to my public twitter account, for anyone who wants to follow me :)

I started at EME 5 years ago on the game testing team playing TERA. After that I moved to our support team and worked as a GM for quite a while, helping players with their technical problems and game questions. Now I work on the community team with Danicia. I do news posts and the "social media stuff" - posting information and answering questions on Facebook and Twitter, and sometimes YouTube as well. You'll also catch me lurking in Twitch chat during our streams and crusing around on the subreddit.

My favorite non-TERA games are generally strategy or role playing games, and lately I've been playing a lot of indie games (Darkest Dungeon, This War of Mine, Banished, etc) and tons of Cities: Skylines and Civ 5. Currently I'm all aboard the Fallout 4 hype train...choo choo!

I *still* can't pick a favorite TERA class - I started as a Priest and love healing in TERA more than any other MMO. Surprisingly, though, I spend most of my time playing a slayer and berserker. I've been playing MMORPGs for nearly 15 years so it's strange that these are my first real melee characters (Chanters in AION really don't count with their meager dps)!

Fun facts:
- I'm left handed.
- I own a ridiculous number of Doctor Who t-shirts but I am NOT a dalek, regardless of what the TERA community may say to the contrary!
- I live with my extremely handsome dog, Oliver and his new trouble-making feline companion, Minerva.
- A few of my favorite books are Mother Night, Catch 22, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Martian, and Livro do Desassossego (The Book of Disquiet). And, I suppose, The Lord of the Rings since I re-read it at least once a year...
- My biggest non-gaming hobby is running. I've run one marathon and quite a few half marathons, and every year I run an awesome 200(ish) mile relay race with friends in July.
- My favorite movie is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but Big Fish is a close second.
- If I have my headphones on at work, I'm probably listening to Alice in Chains, Florence and the Machine, Nine Inch Nails, or classic/90's alt rock.

My dog and cat have achieved maximum cuteness




Here's my desk!


PS: Super shout-out to GM Discodolly who made the froggy and T-rex amigurumi on my desk!

Hello,

I am Donna, aka Danicia. I'm the new Community Manager Team Lead at En Masse. My first project to launch is Extra Life, which is a great introduction to the community. The more I get caught up, the more involved I'll be in messaging, reporting, and gathering feedback from the TERA Community. I'll be creating a brand new Community Plan, and hope to roll out some new things *cough* view this thread *cough* Super excited to have Harmonia working for me; she's got a lot of history about TERA and En Masse, so she's been super busy doing a lot of brain dumping to me every day.

Time to share a bunch of stats about me!

  • - I've been attending and working at renaissance festivals since 1982

I'm posting my desktop, but only part of it, as I haven't decorated it with Sailor Moon & Star Wars. Just wait! My desktop background is a photo I took while visiting the Medieval Christmas Markets in Colmar, Alsace in France



I have three cats! Meet Bubastis (13yr), Snickerdoodle (8yr), and Rocket the Rescue Kitten (3yr).

That's a super cute doggie.

I recognize that tabletop train game from that youtube tabletop show. Never played but looks fun.

OP post said questions. Not sure if that meant game questions or personal stuff, so I'll ask both. What's your favourite food? Least liked food?

Is it possible to have a GM BAM spawning event? Maybe have GM Solomon show up (on TR) as well?

The game is called Ticket to Ride and it is super fun. You can also play it on Steam, if you like to play board games on your computer.

My fave food is pasta, with rosemary & garlic. Least liked is mustard, as I'm allergic.

I'm building a list of in-game events to schedule. I'll be putting up a thread for feedback once I'm ready to start plotting and planning. I'd love to get a player versus dev event going.
