Oh why not, I'll toss in on this too.
Been a looong time gaming veteran, since I was a wee high school nerd and some 16 or so years later I'm just your average adult geek.
Started out getting into Magic with friends. Was into Blue, being the color of magic, stereotypical wizards and whatnot. Our local hobby shop had some old L5R from when Wizards was running it so I found the old Kyuden Kitsune box and fell in love. My friends didn't find it as engaging so I just collected it.
Got into it more properly just as Gold was coming out and got really excited for Ratlings, despite their promo only joke status at the time. I went by Kitsune Shiroi and was pretty active with the Ratling community.
Friends and I also discovered Deadlands, unfortunately right as it died. This did mean at least that product was plentiful and cheap, we actually lucked into Mouth of Hell starters at the hobby shop, snatched those up and got into the Collegium. Later found Elijah's Flock and got to collecting the game. Part of the fun was hunting out some of the rarer sets, was really thrilled when I managed to score Do Unto Others.
So that kind of got me into checking out AEG's other games. I ended up collecting Legend of the Burning Sands, disappointed to see how short lived it was (and I -loved- how diverse the factions were). Likewise it was fun hunting out the cards, particularly Awakening. Jazzed when I scored both the Celestial Alliance and Ra'Shari. I picked up 7th Sea too, I really liked the lore and the style and got attached to Gosse's Gentlemen.
This led me into Warlord, being another AEG property, and it was pretty awesome what with the whole D&D setting and mechanics. I got into this during Campaign Edition and followed it til it died, moved to Phoenix Interactive, then lost interest about 3/4 of the way through that and it subsequently died again. I went by Elex on the Temple of Lore (and still do, in fact). Really liked the ragtag Free Kingdoms and a lot of the Mercenary warlords.
I also got into Spycraft, which was short lived, but that's where my Agent White handle on the AEG forums came from. Banshee Net seemed pretty awesome
I still followed L5R for quite a while, then they axed the Rats at the end of Lotus and I lost the majority of my interest (plus I really hated Shadowlands becoming the 'Spider Clan' and everything shifted to 'clan drama' XP) I kept in touch a bit, following the game here and there without collecting, picking up the Forgotten Legacy set (which ended up being something of a disappointment since they really hyped the Naga 'returning' and then backpedaled with a weak ass 'we never intended it to be a full return and they won't actually be the major villains')
After Warlord died I kind of got out of CCGs, got into trying MMOs. Jumped into WoW for a bit, tried EQ2, settled on City of Heroes. Then -it- died, so I got into WoW full time. Loved Mists of Pandaria. Been fairly lukewarm on Warlords of Draenor and have been on a hiatus til I get a new comp (coming soon!)
That's round when I discovered Doomtown had revived as DTR and was absolutely thrilled. Was a little disappointed that they hadn't brought back a lot of the original factions but I've really grown attached to the new gangs and really loving the Eagle Wardens.
So yeah, in short, long time AEG veteran. I recognize more than a few names from my past here Glad to see folks still kicking.
