    Ello TheMap

    I'm a strategy gamer who plays games like Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis III. But am also into fantasy building games like Dwarf Fortress or to an extent Minecraft.

    I used to play HnH, and was a hermit myself. But this time around i decided to join a village, you should join as-well!

    We're always looking for more members.

    Howdy, I'll Shodex. I like roleplaying games and shooters, but my taste for shooters is slowly diminishing. But honestly I like just about any game that lets me do something I normally can't in real life. I definitely have a sweet spot for open world games, like Mount & Blade, The Elder Scrolls, etc. I played a bunch of Sandbox MMOs like Face of Mankind (if it counts), Wurm Online, and most importantly Pre-AOS Ultima Online.

    I also help run a Minecraft server, which on top of Salem will make me a very busy person.

    ColonelTEE3 has been my 'handle' on a lot of gaming forums like dwarf fortress, dawntide, xsyon, darkfall, World of darkness, and now Salem.

    I'm really into FPS-rpgs like darkfall, Mass Effect, VtM:bloodlines, Fallout and elder scrolls. I believe the integration of FPS(or personal skill) with RPG (in game character development and progression) is a really fun and interesting set of game dynamics to play in. I'm something of a power gamer when time allows for it, and im harsh on carebearisms like tab targetting because (in MY opinion) tab targetting pvp is 90% character development, 5% button mashing and 5% skill. Penalty-free death or penalty-light death in mmos is boring to me, and i enjoy games where i feel immersed into the survival and success of my character -- if failure or death means nothing to my character, it means nothing to me as a player.

    Proud to say i've never played world of warcraft, and i know that may offend some of you, but i played lotro back when i was young and new to mmos so i feel i got the "gist" of what WoW offers and since i've been playing Darkfall upon its release i can't fathom downgrading to another theme-park game like WoW or Rift or Lotro.

    I love sandbox games, i think xsyon really flourished as a world builder sandbox and i think its a tragedy they executed the rest of the game so poorly with such a fantastic world builder / city builder. I don't think graphics make or break a game at all -- i play dwarf fortress with the original tileset and i enjoy it fine, so im not at all concerned with graphics in Salem and i hope with harsh game mechanics like permadeath, combined with the sandbox of colonial expansion and city building as well as pvp, that this might be the next big game for me.

    I guess i can do this aswell.
    Hello, im Sumo0. The first mmo i ever played was UO, just sad that back then i was too stupid/young to really appreciate that game. I mostly play MMO, RPG, RTS and FPS^^ games where i have to invest a shitton of time are the games i like the most. The most recent mmo i played was Mortal Online. Im 27 btw.
    I love sandbox games and dislike themeparks. I could never get myself to really play H&H because of the truly crappy resolution.
    And that is the highlights.

    G-Mike here. I am a total Paradox Fan boy especially for the historical simulators. MMO exp I have in the past is PSO and WOW. This is my second beta test for Paradox, the first was for Sengoku. When I first saw Salem in person in Jan 2011, I knew this game was going to be special.

    Hello all!

    RetroCrumpet as my forum handle suggests. Like a few i've been playing MMOs since UO (and still have an active sub, no hate please :P)

    Play a wide range of titles but prefer an online focus, enjoying Salem thusfar with my limited time.

    More than looking forward to an ex-UO village
