Dota 2: Radiant vs. Dire: Poetry of the Warring Clans.
My favorite universes: The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Bartimaeus, the Skulduggery Pleasant series, Batman, and Halo (Pre-4 NEVER FORGET).
My player name on steam is also Black Rook. It should say United States, California and have a cool guy with a burning hand. Friend me and I'll give you the third degree trying to find out who you are on here.
My League of Legends username is RoarofTyphon. If that isn't the coolest sounding (lolol jokes) mythological name you've ever heard then my name isn't Pretty, Pretty, Pink Princess.
I grew up on PC games and my first console owned was a 360. However, I know quite a bit due to me being a total nerd/antisocial person with a lot of time on their hands.
So if you want to play anything ask me anytime. I will promptly disregard you, your request, and the wishes of your deceased pet.
Fellowship of the Rook
His favorite genres are RPG, co-op, action-adventure, RTS, simulation, fantasy, and space. The founder of the Star Wars group here on GIO, and our GLORIOUS LEADER. Just don't get into an argument with him about Firefly or the Yuuzhan Vong.
The Identity-Confused Carson
A quite random, lighthearted person. He is also a member of the Nintendo crowd here on GIO. Currently banned. We await his return. HE HAS RETURNED, AND BRINGS WITH HIM MINT-FLAVORED ICE CREAM. HIS SUPREMELY DOMINANT REIGN IS SURE TO FOLLOW.
He's kinda like Carmen Sandiago. Except he's a he, not a she.
The only other person I know that is a fellow hunter of The Walking Dead. Stand strong... he also likes Radiohead, Mogwei, and Explosions in the Sky.
Do NOT Read This
While I may not care for his disdain for one of my favorite hobbies (Which also happens to be the greatest medium for a story *Cough* take that, movies *Cough*) I can appreciate the fact that he stands by Nintendo though many call it childish. He's a big fan of comedy.
Hands down one of the three nicest people I've ever met. Ash is a big fan of anime, Nintendo, and RPGs. And Doctor Who. Don't forget the Who.
The Great Cubone
My competitive gaming blood brother. He's awesome. A very patient, nice guy. Put up with me even though I'm rather unskilled.
GG big halo fan his r3@l name is petunia
Quite a funny individual. Stay back though, this one is slightly crazed.
And then there was Rook. I really hope you don't need a link for my page. That would be worrying. One thing that's good to know is that I try to be funny. So if I say, "You hath surpassed me. Curse this day!" what I'm saying is, "Congratulations!" Oh, and since I feel that I should be held responsible for my actions on the internet and not hide behind anonymity: Hi, I'm Joseph.

"Since no man has aught of what he leaves, what is't to leave betimes? let be." --Hamlet by William Shakespeare
"We are the hollow men / We are the stuffed men / Leaning together / Headpieces filled with straw." --The Hollow Men by T.S. Eliot
His poetry often needs some outside analysis, but don't let that discourage you. A truly great modern poet. And I hate modern poetry.
Single-handedly created the Fantasy genre. All them youngsters talking about Game of Thrones, the Name of the Wind, the Black Company? This is their progenitor. THIS IS THEIR RULER. ALL BOW BEFORE TOLKIEN.
Read his Star Wars books.
Author of some downright stellar books, and the amazing Bartimaeus series. A funny, creative writer with styyyyylllllle.
Author of the best young adult series around, Skulduggery Pleasant. If you are human, read this book. If you are not human, read this book. If you are a bookworm, I estimate that this book will provide at the very least double the nutrition of any other out there.
No, I'm not joking. Read him. If you can't take the original language, find an abridged version. I would suggest the original with footnotes though. He has a joke or allusion to something pretty much in every line... it's really quite incredible.
