so hey i never did this

hello everybody!  i figured now that i'm a League moderator, i should finally give a proper introduction.

my name is Josh and i've bounced around all sorts of competitive gaming.  i'm most well-known as a video-game speedrunner (particularly classic Castlevania) and a fighting-game tournament player, and i've also put tons of time into Power Grid.  my pal Withhelde (not sure if she has an account here or not) got me into Dominion last summer, and it's become my new main game.

outside of Dominion i'm also a voracious reader, particularly on sociopolitical issues, and i started going to the gym every day recently.  i have a particular strange fascination with professional wrestling that goes back to my childhood...i discovered it at the tail end of the Hulkamania days, then got back into it when Stone Cold & The Rock (whom you may know as "that buff Samoan dude in all those Fast & The Furious movies") blew up.  i was the exact age of their target audience in both cases, so i guess it's not a huge surprise it would catch on with me.

i even made a thread in the General forum to share all kinds of wonderful rasslin' wackiness, so stop on by from time to time if you want a laugh or a unique story.  i just posted something involving a member of the prime minister's cabinet in Japan!

EDIT: oh yeah, and i would rather play a Cultist cage match for the League than do any forum games.  i tried forum Mafia once elsewhere.  never again...

Let's be honest, Necro Wars is pretty bad.

and i started going to the gym every day recently.

You should try rock climbing. Rock climbing gyms are like normal gyms but fun.

believe it or not, someone else gave it to me!  kind of an odd yet boring story

when i was 13 i used to chat with a guy who ran a Castlevania III fansite, and he just started calling me that out of the blue because he was a big Wu-Tang fan i guess.  i liked it and ran with it - it stuck forever when i made that my handle on Shoryuken and starting meeting tons of people from there IRL.

i'm more OK with it now compared to years ago as my musical tastes have evolved, making it a better fit.  i used to be the most stereotypical RAP IS CRAP nerd, haha

When you first started posting here, I thought "Hey! This guy has the same username as that guy I saw speedrunning Castlevania. It can't be him, right?" I turned out wrong. Either way, welcome!

You don't appear to have been asked this yet:
Have you checked out the Dominion League?
