Hey, welcome to MMO Folklorist!
The primary aim of this blog is to provide a place in which I can write about interesting things that I happen upon in my adventures in MMORPG’s.
I first became a gamer back in the early ’90s, cutting my teeth on games like Killer Instinct for the SNES and Batman Returns on the Sega Mega Drive. My first online gaming experiences took place in the early 2000’s, playing Star Wars Battlefront II and Jedi Knight Academy on Xbox Live. Not long after that my parents purchased a PC that was capable of running more than Flash games and I started playing my first MMO’s.
After a few months of dabbling I found a home in Star Wars Galaxies – a game which I would play until it was shut down in 2011. I was burned deeply by its untimely demise and didn’t settle into another MMO again until 2014, when I finally gave in and played Star Wars: The Old Republic. Although I’ve tried dozens of MMO’s over the years, recently I’ve been attempting to branch out and more seriously engage with MMO’s that aren’t set in George Lucas’ worlds.
I’ve been writing online since I was a teenager, and in 2014 I self-published my first book Burton’s Batman: The Definitive Unauthorized Guide to Batman ’89 & Batman Returns. In 2018 I released my second book, Galaxies: An Empire Remembered. Both are presently out-of-print, but Galaxies can be downloaded as a free eBook from itch.io.
