Hi. I'm Tim Alexander. I've been around the block a few times, and been here since before I met my wife (we've been married for almost 4 years now).
I was pretty involved at the start, and still am quite involved, though not quite as much now that I have 2 kids, a house, and a full time, 60 hour per week Job. (OK, so I login at work too. ^_^)
Battlemaster has been a daily part of my life for more than a few years, and I really enjoy it. Dispite disagreeing with a few things that Tom Vogt does, I think he's taken it in a very good direction, and truly earns the title SABDFL (Self Appointed Benevolent Dictator For Life) every day. He's put his heart and soul into this, so that we can all have fun in his world. I personally really admire the guy, and I'm not just saying that so that he gives my character an extra 5 million gold tomorrow (Please Tom? ;) )
I've been a paying subscriber pretty much since I started playing, and I encourage all of you to do the same. It's only a buck a week. You can make that by dumping the pennies out of your pocket and putting them into a jar. Besides, it Helps offset the cost of running this thing, and shows that you appreciate the people who make all this happen.
Anyway, happy playing, and remember, play to have fun.
