[OpNet] Introductions.


Doutor da Reducao

Recommended Posts

It has been brought to my attention that new novas posting without proper introductions are sometimes seen to be rude. For any that might take offense you have my sincere apologies as there was none intended.

I erupted two years ago under what would seem very mundane circumstances to most here. Shortly thereafter my services were offered to a private corporation based in Africa in exchange for a certain prestige, enormous sums of money and the prospect of adventure. The position was everything promised though after a small mishap culminated in spinal surgery and six months of rehabilitation, as well as a divorce and a subsequent marriage, I elected to purchase my contract. "Bought my way out" as American's would say. The break was amicable and I still do work for them from time to time. I don't miss that life though the money was truly obscene.

After changing my nom de guerre, both to distance myself from that life and because it was difficult to say with a straight face when speaking with adults, I've gone to work as a consultant. Prior to my eruption I was training for archeology but the skills gained since then put me in demand for solving engineering problems, especially those which require micro-miniaturization.

I'm currently unmarried, though always looking for the next Mrs. Redução, and am hopeful as they say seven times is a charm. It is a pleasure to meet all of you.

Variety is an understatement. You got here:

A big green walking personification of a can of whup@$$ with a doctorate,

An Ampwell swilling, buttkicking, badder than the bad@$$ himself elite from down south,

Not to mention yours truely. wink (Please, can the magical girl jokes).

A lot of the people here are nice guys and gals. Some are too into what they're doing to notice the newbies though. Either that, or they are watching you VERY closely. We're glad you came, just wipe your feet outside the door.

I too am new to these forums and upponm reading your message thought it might be a good idea to send my own introduction.

I was a priest in England for about 5 years and upon seeing a parisioner being assaulted I lost control. Perhaps I went too far, I couldnt say, however the guy who was assaulting certainly regretted it, I think that he had to have surgery, but then I didnt really care about what he needed.

I am not certain what to do now, my ability for violence is certainly, scary, but I would like to do good. i dont know , when I was young I read some stuff on socialism, maybe I could give that another try, well im open to all suggestions.

Hope to see you all on the forums smile

Sorry Doutor. Meant to say welcome aboard but pressed the post key too soon. From the sound of it we've probably never met professionally but you may have run across Vile Bill if it was the private company I'm thinking of.

So what do you say? Wanna give us any hints on the old name or shall we start guessing? "Redução" didn't ring any bells but "Doutor" gave enough of a hint to translate the motto.

Doutor and Padre Timbell;

I apologize for the subject going a little far afield of your introductions. It's good to meet you both and welcome to the forum. I look forward to interacting with you in deep philosophical debates.

Again - welcome.

LNSE;

We just finished watching two hours of chip video. I now understand where your motto of "100% and ready to go!" comes from. GJ says she can recommend a really good doctor if you actually want that much sweater fill. Or a good air pump if you just have a thing for beach and basket balls.

Hey, TinyBritches!

Checked out the tape and I gots ta say I'm disapointed. From all the hoodalolly y'all were making I was expectin somethin a bit more steamy than that. Y'know, a little DVDA or bukkake?

Heck, when NoChance and the GhoulyGirly finally hitch it up legal I'm plannin' a bachelor party that'll make your little fun look like a Mormoron Sweet Sixteen party.

Like I said back about a month ago. They put salt and pepper over the thing, and made it more than it was. It was just a bunch of blitzed Novas actin' a fool, as the Americans say. Although the bump I took from Jager was SICK! Looking at it on slo-mo makes me cringe. I'm glad I regen better now. Must be all the @$$-kickings I've recieved lately.

Greetings all. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Druid. I found this board recently and thought I might like to participate in the discussions so I thought I'd say HI before I dive in.

I errupted the summer of 98. I was a spiritual seeker exploring various Pagan paths of enlightenment. My erruption was a very gentle, gradual process, unlike many of yours. I was attending a week long seminar on Attuning to the spiritual aspects of the natural world given by the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids which is based in the UK. My awareness and ability to influence the elements and living things seemed to develop over the days of intense meditation. I found the experience to be the most profoundly ... well you all know what it's like.

So I spent the next few weeks alone in the woods listening to the Earth, learning from the trees and emulating the creatures of the wild. They taught me more about my new abilities than any Rashoud clinic ever could (that is if there had BEEN any Rashoud clinics at the time). When I finally decided to come back into the world of people everything had changed. My family had been frantic to find me (I can't believe I just had just forgotten to contact them in those weeks, forgotten that people even existed during that time). I had lost my job, which was no real loss anyway. And the way I saw the world was so different it was as if I was just being born.

I soon found that my intuitive understanding of biological and medical sciences made me a prime candidate for employment with the Triton Foundation. I quickly became immersed in developing new treatments for Cancer and various genetic disorders. The day my team announced that we had found a cure for AIDS was the proudest moment of my life.

So after many years working for Triton on a full time basis I've changed my status to one of Consultant and I'm taking alot more time to explore the world, delving into the untamed wilds, becomming one with the Great Mother and learning what She needs from us. We've taken so much from Her already and though we are beginning to give back, there's still so much more to do. But I'm not going to make the mistake I made just after my erruption. I'm not going to isolate myself from humanity. Humans (and Novas if you subscribe to the belief that we're not human) are not separate from Nature. We are one of the most influential factors in the future of this planet. I hope to use my knowledge and my abilities to guide others toward a true symbiosis with the rest of Gaias children.

Everything's connected.

Welcome, Druid though my own arrival is a scant few days before yours. I think you will find this locale interesting as in only a short time I've witnessed any number of incredible events including a short trip to one of the moons of Jupiter reported live by the incredible novas that made the trip.

Senhor Chance; it was not my intention to ignore you or the question. Truly it was only after you made a guess elsewhere that I realized it was not a rhetorical question or simple polite interest. Mighty Mite is not known to me personally as his accident occured shortly after my eruption. I do know of whom you're talking as my spinal reconstruction took place in the same institution where he currently resides.

The name you are looking for is "Oberon". It was a good enough name until the media picked up the "fae" king angle and then it became simply embarrassing.
