Welcome to Ottoman Hold. I live on the East Coast, in Philadelphia and am currently in college getting pounded by coursework. I especially enjoy the sciences and mathematics enough that I'm looking to become an engineer; otherwise, I'm a slight history buff, and am probably better at grammar and writing than a typical aspiring engineer. shade casted... That's about all that's special about me though, at least that you all are allowed to know. It's not like I'm going to put my deepest, darkest desires down here. >:)

I love The Elder scrolls, thoroughly enjoying the game play. I typically go as far as to truly embrace my characters, trying to act realistically...with some twists, of course (random non-saved rampages, anyone?). Although my favorite game at the moment is Skyrim, it's certainly not the best, as I was disappointed in the story even when it was the only game I had played. Since then I have played a bit of Online and have enjoyed it so far, and I hope as well to get into Morrowind and Oblivion. We'll see if time allows for that...

I joined the wiki on March 16th, 2015 and replied to a forum thread because I felt like it, and...that's really all there is to it. I never expected to linger long enough to be recommended to a staff position, but when I was, I knew that it was time to step up. In that regard, I've been a moderator since March 7th, 2016, perhaps because I've always liked completing tasks and making things the best they can be. You can check out more of my wiki career here.

Long live the Elder Scrolls Wiki, and long live Tamriel!
