About Me

Hello! My name is Silmalel. Actually that's not my name, but it is the name I go by in the gaming world. I'm a huge J.R.R. Tolkien fan, and Silmalel roughly translates as Light of Heaven, Heavenly Light, or Heaven's Light from Quenya to English. You can pick which translation you like best.

I had Guild Wars 2 pre-ordered on October 2009 on Amazon, but then I dumped it for the ANet download. I'm a member of Zealots of Shiverpeak [ZoS] in both the original Guild Wars and in Guild Wars 2.

The real life me obviously enjoys computer games, which I started playing on a Commodore 64 & Commodore Amiga 500 when I was a kid (LOAD "*",8). I am a committed Christian and work for The United Methodist Church. I am married with children. I am originally from Evansville, Indiana, USA, which is a great place to live. I still live in the Hoosier State, but no longer in E'ville. My wife calls my computer "the other woman," but she really is just kidding. I am a proud Generation X slacker. I also love The University of Findlay Oilers (Findlay, Ohio), and the Duke University Blue Devils (Durham, North Carolina), as I am a graduate of both institutions. I also root for the Indianapolis Colts, Saint Louis Cardinals, Detroit Tigers, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and Indiana Hoosiers. I love online games like Guild Wars because they allow me to have some fun with far-off friends and family without having to pay subscription fees out the wazoo, which I cannot afford because I am married with children as I mentioned above. I enjoy spending time with my wife and children, reading, studying, learning new things, and working with my hands: especially carpentry (though I'm a novice) and flower gardening.

I was a recipient of a signed Christmas card from the Arena Net staff in 2009. It included a pic of the Guild Wars 2 Order of Whispers Armor in it. Very cool, and thanks ArenaNet!

Be sure to stop at my talk page and say hi! You can also check out my Guild Wars 1 user page to see the gear I'm stuffing into my Hall of Monuments in preparation for GW2.
