Hello is this thing on?

Given that this is my 500th post on these forums I thought I'd introduce myself.

I am 30 years old, went to college for 9 years but never finished, and currently do technical writing for a software company. I have been playing strategic board/card games for about 10 years. Some non-Dominion favorites are Agricola, Tichu, and Scrabble. My Dominion story is thus:

I first played with some friends in college in 2008. Base only because that was all there was. We all thought Bureaucrat was way overpowered. Silver for free, immediately topdeck it, and an attack? Unfair. I only played a few games then. Fast-forward to 2011 and I played once more with a local gaming group; thence I discovered isotropic. Isotropic was the bomb. You could see your entire hand at once and stuff and it was so fast. I found this forum in late 2012 (via the dominionstrategy blog) but never posted until mid-2015.

I also like video games, anime, and manga. Some favorites are Cowboy Bebop, Dennou Coil, and Puella Magi Madoka Magica. I'm a fan of symphonic metal and synthpop music.

I am also a new homeowner, which is both great and stressful.

It's the TV series but with the movie visuals whenever possible. Here's the FAQ: http://pastebin.com/kk59pNHV

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask, maybe via PM or something to not derail this thread (I worked on the project).

Interesting; I've seen both the series and the movies and I have a great backlog of other stuff so I am not planning to rewatch soon, but I will keep it in mind.
