I am also a viking reenactor who is a bit out of practice since leaving my reenactment group in Alaska. I attend the rare SCA event but otherwise yearn for a sparring partner to do live-steel combat with again.
I am also an avid gamer. I likes to Crash me some Castles! And rock out on Rockband (and miss dearly having my own copy >.<). My ex and I ran a guild in World of Warcraft for roughly 6 years, and saw a lot of ups and downs but have made many good friends who've stood with us and held the line. I also regularly play table-top games like D&D and board games. Loves me some Arkham Horror.
I am also an avid role-player and enjoy exploring the quirks of a character and how numbers on a sheet translate into character motivations/history. Yes, I am enthusiastically geeky.
I have participated in the local Kink and Leather scenes since 2010. I approach the things I have learned both before and during my times with both with...enthusiasm.
What also will catch people are my blue eyes. I hear from reliable sources that they can change in hue or intensity slightly to match my mood.
I am broad-shouldered and stocky, and like to surprise people physically (especially myself). I'm a fan of keeping in good physical health.
For movies and television I have to go heavily with the scifi, horror and fantasy genres. Examples include but are not limited to: John Carpenter's "The Thing", The Dark Knight, Firefly, David Lynch's Dune, City of Lost Children, Dark City, Outlander, Nightmare on Elmstreet 1 to 4, Predator, Babylon 5, Farscape, The History Channel's Vikings...I also have severe nostalgia for 80s action flicks, and enjoy a good drama from time to time (Farewell to the King with Nick Nolte comes foremost to mind). When it comes to comedy my tastes usually run with brit-coms like Black Adder, Fawlty Towers, Eddie Izzard and any of Rowan Atkins' stand up comedy. I also love me some Bill Hicks. And anime. Lots of anime.
The music I most commonly listen to is a mix of Muse, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, 90s grunge, and electronica (specifically, The Knife, Crystal Method, and Moby). I am also a big metal head, with Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Tyr, and Coheed and Cambria seeing frequent play time on my headphones. Naturally, I have a fondness for Dragonforce and 80s "power metal" like Manowar, Saxon, and Iron Maiden. Recent experiences have turned me on to "math rock" like Battles and indie groups like Pinback and Phoenix. Goth and industrial music are also a strong part of my musical palate, and I have been a regular (once-a-month-ish) at Ground Zero nightclub for some time. I do not care much for rap or r&b, having found only infrequently things that sound good to me (namely, Doomtree). And most modern country is lost on me - I tend to be a bit old school here with Johnny Horton, Marty Robbins, Willy Nelson, and Hank Williams Sr. And Johnny Cash. Johnny. Motherfucking. Cash.

A good knife.
I am active in the local bdsm and kink communities. Yes, I have a Fetlife account - Guthmunder, for any interested in a friend or a profile to perv.
I am also open to new friends, new experiences, and new sex partners, and happy to explore physical intimacy and sex positivity.
