Player Gaming Information

City of Heroes/City of Villains is the only MMORPG that I play. I tried WoW, Guild Wars, and Dungeon Runners, and I didn't really like any of them. I used to play a great space-based MMORPG called Earth and Beyond, but that game ceased operation in September 2004.

I've played pen-and-paper RPGs since the dawn of time. Well, okay, really only since 1978. Mostly, these days, I play G.U.R.P.S. (specifically two Supers campaigns, one of which I'm running), Legend of the Five Rings, and Star Wars (Second Edition).

Non-Gaming Info

I am a musician, specifically a singer/songwriter/guitarist, with my own band, The Eben Brooks Band. I am also responsible for four City of Heroes based filks: Personal Archvillain (to the tune of "Personal Jesus" by Depeche Mode), Beat Up the Scum (to the tune of "Soak Up the Sun" by Sheryl Crow), "Don't Wanna Be Defeated" (to the tune of "I Wanna Be Sedated" by The Ramones), and "Regeneration" (to the tune of "My Generation" by The Who). All four of these songs can be heard on Justice Radio.
