My self-summary
*clear throat* here goes.

My name's James Dorian England.
I'm a rock-based art fag from the arse-end of Manchester. I am currently moving between Preston and Manchester as I'm currently studying Fine Art at UCLAN and loving it.
I enjoy reading, drawing, photography, writing (v. rarely) and playing games. Music plays an important part of my life. I'm also getting into the Steampunk subculture.
I play a lot of tabletop RPGs and am the securatary for the RPG society at uni. I mainly play DnD 3.5, New World of Darkness and Scion. I've ran Unhallowed Metropolis and I want to run Victoriana and Call of Cthulhu at some point. I'm also intersting into joining a LARP group when I can be arsed getting up early on a sunday to join my local one. I play Magic the Gathering when I can afford to, I mainly play the EDH format.
I watch a lot of anime, Dr Who and various films. I also read a lot, mainly fantasy and sci-fi. I'm willing to take recommendations of animes, books, films and TV shows. I also play viseo games, I own a Xbox360, PS2, Wii, N64 and I have a Steam account. I mainly play fantasy RPGs though I do occasionally break into other genres.
I have a habit of making words up.
I am inquisitive, eclectic, and idealistic.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently studying Fine Art at the University of Central Lancashire. I plan on doing some travelling when I finish uni. I would liked to become a concept artist for some game company in the long run.
I’m really good at
Drawing, being inventive
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair (currently black) and my eyes

Six things I could never do without
Music, something to read, something to draw/doodle with/on, my privacy, comupter/internet access, boys.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
things you would't believe... other places, times, universes... mainly

then there's the usual life, love, sex etc

and how to adapt thing into tabletop RPGs... I'm currently working on trying to adapt the anime Darker Than Black, into either a D20 system (like Dungeons and Dragons) or into a D10 (like New world of Darkness/Scion)
On a typical Friday night I am
at home (probably being creative or reading)
walking (somewhere else)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an FtM trans-boy
You should message me if
you want to talk about anything or nothing...

I prefer muchly long, winding, tangental conversations to short "hi how are you" chats. Anything from "how awesome is this film/book/band" to "I wonder if the love/hate of marmite is genetic". impossible questions, dodgy philosophy and "what if..."

or if you would like to recommend me a book, game, film, anime or TV show
The two of us
