My natural habitats include Jackson discussions in EG, and the computer, literature and whisky threads in The Pit.
I have a sense of style firmly rooted in the Victorian era. As a result of this, I have large sideburns, several waistcoats and a pocketwatch. Picture a Victorian gentleman sitting at a custom gaming PC with a glass of whisky and you're just about there.
