Well, my story obviously doesn't really compare to the rest of the mods, admins and so on here (I have a terrible memory). Basically this is my second time being around here. First of all, I probably got into Fallout in...lets say, '99. I dont know, but as a kid the whole post apoc feel of the game was a fun diversion from playing, lets say, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? and Wing Commander on my POS computer. After playing Fallout 1, I eventually bought Fallout 2 because I heard afew good things (and that Game of the Year tag kinda sells you). I remember reading the box in Circuit City about "Become a porn star" "pimp your spouse out" "sell your friends into slavery" and thought "Wow, what a frigging realistic game!" Anyways, from then on I liked the whole atmosphere of the game, and the gritty feel of it. After that, in middle school I had an acquaintance who was also very much into the whole Fallout game. I don't recall his name, but he eventually founded a group known as Black Ops (blackops.f2s.com I think it was). He was a member of The Order as well, I believe, and so I kind of came on and got attached to the fan fiction type of stories here. This was back, way back, back when it was sort of an RPG in of itself with classes such as Scout, Ranger, and so on. Anyways, there was that, and then I knew Kharn from No Pokemon Allowed and FLAP. I might very well have gravitated over to The Order and NMA, bored as hell since Pokemon was rightfully declining from the obsessive craze it was. Eventually, I lost track of NMA and The Order a little while before Tactics came out. After Tactics and replaying F2 several times, I rekindled my interest in the game and one college afternoon, on a lark, wandered over the websites for something about Fallout. Probably was looking for Doombot's San Andreas Vault. Anyways, I came across NMA and was shocked to see it as still very much active. Even more to my suprise though, The Order was alive and apparently still active. Even with Kharn "The Flying Dutchman" off in Russia, I decided to apply to The Order once more after a few weeks on the NMA section. Been here since the fall of 2004. Well, that's about it for my story.
