Hey there,

Dropping by quickly to get my dose of DJ goodness.

While I'm there, what's your occupation?

I teach English in China (south of).

Next!

(I must admit I rather curious as to what Kepli's job is... I think he's a cyberspirit with uncanny aptitudes for art)

I'm a basically an IT geek.
Business Analyst/Programmer/Database Admin.

Primary focus is in health care the last few years.

I'll go one step further. My hobbies, in addition to D&D once a fortnight, are science (physics/astronomy/biology), Gym/running, and top of the list going out with friends :)

I'm a housewife, former artist/craft person..okay, I still do some artwork but not much as I'm too weak (sick) to do much but sit at a computer and DM an AD&D game via email. I also make semi-precious stone beaded necklaces, or I did. My one fun thing to do these days beside come here is to search through gravel from Montana looking for sapphires, garnets, agates and quartz. I've found quite a lot of sapphires and had some of them cut. The biggest I've found is 11 carats. Unfortuneately there were a few flaws in it so ended up with several half carats gemstones.

Good topic, always nice to see what we all do in the real world.
I am a Quality Engineer (degree at Purdue)working for a circuit board manufacture. My responsibilities are with all of our automotive customers. I am also a certified TS 16949 internal auditor so I keep busy at work in paper work and process and quality control..... Art is my stress relief from work and you all really help in lowering that stress.

Thanks Blu

Close, but no sigar

I am an IT Consultant with almost 12 years experience. Done work for Retail/Wholesale, Health Care and Energy companies . Too many different roles and tasks to mention here

No previous art experience before I started using DJ

I work in the office of a construction company, and my duties cover a very wide range of skills ranging from AutoCAD, to deliveries, to job material breakdowns, to repairs on buildings, to site visits to check out the site of the next buildings and laser shoot it, and to being the forklift driver. Just call me Jack.

Semper Fi Desert Elf, 88-94 here. We crop up in the strangest places ... though I'm not surprised D&D is pretty popular when you are strapped for cash near the end of the pay cycle :P Thankfully I was both a Sgt and pretty good at managing my money when I was stationed in Hawaii, read that as I could spread my clubbing evenly over the 2 paydays a month :P

Cop . . . and (with a nod to johnpaulstoddard) Infantryman.

I served with 1-38th Inf in Korea--"Rock of the Marne" (Part of 2ID at the time)

I played DnD in the 80's, and now I'm back, using Fantasy Grounds.

I found a reference to Dundjinni in a post in the FG forums, and I've been gobbling up all the free art that Dundjinni geniuses have posted.

And welcome, Arcana!

I'm working on finishing up my degree in Simulation and Modeling, so still living the student life for now. Maybe sometime next year I'll be doing something similar to Arcana, perhaps even for the navy. VR is pretty neat stuff, and there's also human factors type jobs out there too, so I don't know what I'll be doing yet :)

Right now we are in Colorado but the horses we bought are up in South Dakota at Jen's family farm. They will stay there until they are 2 yrs old. Hopefully by that time we will have our own facilities down here so Jen can train them.

I would say that the government certainly encourages military service. And the general public looks at it as an honorable and necessary occupation, even if the general politics of war are not agreed upon.
9/11 also really impacted the "popularity" of serving.

ahh Kep you're setting yourself up there. The branches of the American military are quite "competitve" - they think of themselves as very distinct entites. I think it's an American thing.

You are correct!

Esprit de corps is strong in the US military services, and that competitiveness extends also to the branches within each of the services (infantry, artillery, etc., in the Army, for example) and to individual units ("Rock of the Marne").

That's why I identified myself not only as a soldier (an Army descriptor--Marines would not appreciate being called soldiers )--but also as an infantryman.

HOOAH!

In the States, for right now, service is voluntary. There is also a thing called the GI Bill that vet's get so that the government helps pay for their college.

Not an entirely bad proposition, really and you get an honorable way to serve your country. Last I checked, there were a few countries out there that have forced military service like Spain and Israel. (could be wrong on those.)

Political issues aside, you would be hard-pressed to find a better bunch of honorable, hard working militarymen and women anywhere in the world.

I know where I come from going in the army isn't exactly popular.


I would say that the government certainly encourages military service. And the general public looks at it as an honorable and necessary occupation, even if the general politics of war are not agreed upon.
9/11 also really impacted the "popularity" of serving.

ahh Kep you're setting yourself up there. The branches of the American military are quite "competitve" - they think of themselves as very distinct entites. I think it's an American thing.


Very well put. Marines are trained a bit different then the Army, Navy and Air force. The USMC is rich in history and you learn about the history in boot camp. It builds on the patriotism of the members.

The Marine Corps is also much smaller then the other 3 branches. We are also utilised much differently at the start of campaigns. There is a reason they call us "The few, the proud".

Call it brainwashing if you want :)

I still celebrate the birthday of the USMC, just passed 10 Nov. But then agian I'm always looking for reasons to celebrate :)

That said my nephew was concidering on joining and I explained to him as patriotic as I am I would not join right now. I was active during the 1st gulf war and supported it. I do not support the butchering of the US Constitution that is occuring during this gulf war. It hard to claim the moral high ground and be proud when the US outsources torture, rendering prisoners, to countries like Egypt and thinks that makes it ok.

Enough of my political beliefs.

I work for an armored car company. Naturally having said that I don't neccessarily feel very comfortable saying anything more then that.

I'm 26 and am married to a teacher, no children as of yet.

As far as our U.S. Military goes, I have nothing but the utmost respect for them, regardless of thier branch of service. It's a little-known fact at the small store that I work at part-time, but if someone under 21 shows me thier military ID, they're getting the beer that I would normally refuse to a non-military minor. That's the least I could do for someone who, especially now, risks it all for my country.

I find it utterly ridiculous that you can die for your country on the battlefield
but you can't have a freakin' beer. Military IDs should always override that
silly law.

I can say that the drinking age of 21 never seemed to apply on base. I could always go to an enlisted club and get in with my military ID and they'd always serve you. Now should that be extended out into town? Hmmm Not sure. Atleast if you drank on base you probably where not driving anywhere after.

If they could control drinking then I'd support a drinking age of 21 while letting you go clubbing at 18. Show the kids that you can have fun going out without drinking. Something I learnt while in Hawaii I often volunteered for the designated driver. I'm a much better dancer sobber :)

I am in auto insurance, work for the lizard.

*GETS UP ON SOAPBOX*

I will say I game with a bunch of military guys, and it amazes me the small things we take for granted that they end up sacrificing for deployment, especially separation from their loved ones, for extended periods of time. I totally support and respect them for that willingness.

Having said that, I am also a major opponent of the current war, which is the result not of the military, but the civilian leadership, who in fact did not (and *DO* not) lead!!!

*GETS DOWN OFF SOAPBOX*

I am curious - does anyone know each other in real life? Seems like a very diverse collection geographically.

I just got DJ as a gift for christmas. I've been downloading stuff so I can expand on what is available. I have to admit I'm very new to the concept of making my own maps....heheheheh but I'm sure it'll be fun getting there. Besides I like a little challenge to stir up the creativity. I think I will be making some D&D and Star Wars type stuff as I have run both genras...

Hell no. Teaching is great. I wish that I got a degree in astronomy or biology and became either a teacher or professor.

Hi Everyone,
I figured this would be a good place for my first post.
I'm an Optometrist in Maine. Have been in practice here since 1982. I have 2 kids ( ages 21 & 25) and my Wife and I are about to cellebrate our 30th.

I have been snagging and using the fantastic maps you all post here for quite a while and finally decided to log in officialy. Keep up the great work everyone, these maps add a lot to the games I DM (old school, 2ED AD&D). Hopefully, someday I can add my own creations for everyone else to use, but I am better at modifying what's already here than creating from scratch.

Hey guys. New to the group. I bought the program locally after seeing your work. Very nice.

I am a graphic designer for an exhibit house in Milwaukee WI. I do floorplan, construction drawings, and all graphic layout for exhibits that we build. I also co own a small card and board game company. You may not have seen our titles called Siege and Mission:I.S.S.

We are VERY small.

Welcome, Maclaird. Thinking of using DJ to make a board for a boardgame?

Actually I got it because I have started teaching my 8 year old daughter D&D but it would work very well for a game board as well. In the old days I would have just used photoshop and illustrator. I am still trying to figure out how to get an object to look clean when it is made small. Most of the ones I have worked on so far are just sort of blobby when reduced.

Okay, brand new here. I'll be picking up my copy of DJ sometime within the next week, as soon as my local game store gets it in.

Looking forward to seeing all the great stuff you all come up with.

On topic - I run my own drafting company, AutoCAD and SSDCP. We do structural steel fabrication drawings for shop use. Been at it for almost 27 years now.

Whew

Welcome aboard Bogie, Maclaird and Grogg.

Maclaird, Isn't it great teaching the youngins to play. I am currently teaching my 14 year old to play Castles and Crusades. My eight year old doesn't quite get role playing and seems to be stuck in war game mode. Either way it is fun for me. Have fun with it.

Welcome to all newcomers. Although I don't work with DJ as much as I used
to, I still contribute, and it is great to see new folk discovering the software.

I started her with a rogue and founf that to be a bit too subtle for her. She would get hired at an inn and proudly exclaim to the tavern keep that she was a thief. I made her a warrior after that to get her used to the rp idea.

MacLaird> I'm running Tunnels & Trolls for my kids. They have a variety of
characters, some of whom are rogues. I suspect that if I had presented them
with that opportunity they might have doen something similar. We jumped
right into a simple dungeon crawl without all the foreplay.
"You guys met at the tavern several days ago and found that you were
headed in the same direction. Now you have staryed from the road and
found a derelict temple of some kind builtinto the side of a mountain. Do
you enter?"
