    Hi Rebecca and welcome to our forums! It's always great to see more women looking to get into the industry!

    I certainly do remember you. With the awesome enthusiasm you showed for the game, and DMGs in general, I have no doubt that you'll fit right in here! We've attracted all sorts over the years, but the one thing that us all is the undying love for this genre and the desire to ensure WFTO lives up to everyone's lofty standards!

    It would be my pleasure to take you on at any game, though you'll have to be prepared to show me your best! I'm pretty amazing at most things, including bragging despite actually having no reason to; as everyone will know from the live-stream last Monday. ;) Just chuck me a PM or anything if you want a game and we'll work something out.

    I look forward to seeing more posts from you and from all the others who have joined since meeting us at EGX! It was a great week that we're still recovering from but it'll be business as usual soon.

    Welcome to the forums Azarath!

    Haha I thought that might have been what you were alluding to in the introduction. The staff members that popped down to the board game area a few times to play Resistance, Coup and others were Myself, @Simburgur and @Lord of Riva. You may have also seen @Robofish who while not a staff member was still with us and is a pretty cool guy.

    The group at EGX consisted of: Myself, @Simburgur, @v0id, @Nanorock, @strich, @Hugo, @Patackular & @Lord of Riva. :)

    Still can't put faces to names though... the only one I know is Simburgur, purely due to his attempts to bribe a League cupcake away from me.

    I just made an account so i should probably introduce myself.

    Hey I'm Chloe, best friend of Zheniro and dungeon explorer newbie (my childhood suffered a DK shaped wound). I've just started a game design design course so meeting noontide at EGX was really cool (even if I did stand there and just listen like a dehydrated potato). My favourite games are open world so I'm becoming a bit of an Elder scrolls fan girl. I'm also a bit of a secret wuss so if I claim I'm playing amnesia I'm usually just on the menu screen.

    I was attempting to teach her the game and show her all the awesome stuff, but she got caught up with the fact you could slap imps to death. I think as far as game mechanics go, that was her favourite.
    We were on the end of the row. :p

    Hi Chloe! Welcome to the forums! It's good to see the word of evil is spreading among the unbelievers!

    It was great that you dropped by our booth at EGX, as I mentioned in my previous post it's great to see more women entering the world of game design and it was a pleasure to speak to you both. Don't worry you weren't too much of a potato, no more than I was an overbearing bag of waffle ;)

    I truly empathise with your experience of Amnesia, having streamed it a little quite a few people here will be able to tell you how much of a wuss I am!

    But won't anyone think of the poor puppies?!

    Nope :D We are evil underlords after all. We need to do some pointlessly evil things to justify the heroes anger at us ;).
