Hello. I'm Gentlemanorcus. If you're here you probably realized that already.

I'm heterosexual (I probably need to clarify that in a forum so sexually charged), male, and an aspiring writer. I like to think I'm a pretty normal person, just with an eccentric side.

I'm a bit paranoid about my online identity. I tend to use different names/ages/occupations for each website I join. Zeuss and Scott are common pseudonyms for myself, for example.

I keep meaning to make a YoutubePoop but I never get around to it.

!Me

-where I talk about myself in an egotistical way because everyone has to be interested in me and my life, amirite?-

* {{Chess}}: I play it. Not professionally, but I'm decent. Tend to be impatient, though, which is definitely my biggest failing.
* DontYouDarePityMe: I hate when people pity me.
* HeteronormativeCrusader: My father. He's 70, it's understandable.
* SelfDeprecatingHumor
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: I'm about in the middle.

!Less Important Topics

Take a look at my favorite stuff and mock me for my horrible taste.

* TacticsOgre: (And the remake is great too.)
* RocketKnightAdventures
* FinalFantasyTactics: (I prefer TacticsOgre, but FinalFantasyTactics is still an amazing game. Delita is one of my favorite characters in any medium.)
* MonkeyIsland 1-3
* AlphaProtocol: (One of the few games I've ever played that actually had long reaching and deep consequences for your actions. Also, it had the Brayko boss fight, which pretty much cemented this game as one of my favorites. It didn't deserve the critical bashing it got.)
* {{Civilization}}
* ZombiesAteMyNeighbors: (I grew up with this game, SonicTheHedgehog 2, and RocketKnightAdventures.)
* VagrantStory
* {{Brink}}: (Mixed feelings about this one. A guily pleasure more than anything.)

!Things that make me angry/annoy me, respectively.

!!Serious stuff

-insert self deprecation meant to make the following stupid personal stuff "ironic", and then realize that's stupid itself and enter self- depreception-

* People who complain about jocks making generalizations about them and then making generalizations about jocks. Hypocrisy, much?
* Being lazy and claiming you are BrilliantButLazy as an excuse. If you're lazy, at least acknowledge it.
* Pedophilia/child molestation. I really hope I don't have to explain this one.
* Using Aspergers/Autism as an excuse for bad behavior, laziness, and twisted views. I can understand the problems these disorders may give someone, but they can't be used as an excuse for all his/her failings.
* Constant negativity and little action. If you're going to constantly whine about something, at least ''try'' to do something about it, or learn to deal with it.

!!Less serious stuff

* The smell of Doritos. Two pungent.
* The smell of watermelon gum. Too... water-melony.
* Chocolate with almonds. I don't like nuts in general, much less with my chocolate.
* Chewing gum after it loses the sugar. What's the point?

!I doubt I'll get vandals.

If you want to insult me/comment/talk with me, please do so below. Eat your hearts out.

EDIT: Seems I was wrong. Thanks, guys.

'''For new vandals''': I used to reply to all these comments, but I removed them. I'll reply if I can think of something better than "thank you".

!My work

-where I wax on about my shitty books nobody will ever read-

* AnyoneCanDie
* BlackAndGrayMorality
* [[TheSquad The Company]]: Centered around one. Eventually becomes a battalion. The size of the soldiers focused on are mostly the size of a company though.
* TheEpic
* FamousLastWords: I try to avert this as much as I can. In war, dying soldiers usually don't stick around to deliver poignant final words. Still crops up a bit though.
* GambitPileup
* LowFantasy
* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: Far on the cynical end.
* WarIsHell: A major focus. For example, one scene involves a soldier pulling out his friend's corpse out of a battle scene and talking to him as though he's alive, even though his head has been blown apart.
* WWII: The world functions on medieval government and policies, but has weapons from WW2.

[[folder:My in-work boardgame (this is more an experiment than anything)]]
!In General

!!Units: Infantry
!!!Soldier
The Soldier is geared towards anti-personnel warfare and is a leader of offensives. He has good health and attack. However, he has below-average mobility, he cannot attack any armored units except the Humvee, and he cannot attack aircraft. He uses an assault rifle, a pistol, and a grenade launcher.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: The Jack of All Trades (doesn't need explaining).
* GrenadeLauncher: He gets one. It is used for anti-personnel and anti-material purposes. It can also do minor damage to the Humvee, the armored unit with the least defense.
* JackOfAllStats: The most balanced infantry unit, though he falters against aircraft and armored units.

!!!Support
The Support is geared towards keeping the front line strong by healing infantry and supplying adrenaline shots. He has good speed and decent attack. However, he has below-average health, he cannot attack armored, and he cannot attack aircraft. He uses a carbine, a pistol and a medkit.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: A mix of The Healer (heals units) and The Curer (hands out adrenaline shots to heal supression)
* CombatMedic: Can also be a decent attacker in a pinch.
* FragileSpeedster: Fast but fairly weak.
* StatusBuff: He can give out adrenaline shots to help deal with suppression.
* SupportPartyMember

!!!Engineer
The Engineer is geared towards taking out armored vehicles and LMG nests, and repairing friendly vehicles and emplacements. He has good health and attack. However, he is slow, he is weak to large groups of infantry, and cannot attack aircraft. He uses an RPG, an SMG, and a repair tool.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: The Scrapper (his RPG has to reload often and has low accuracy against infantry but does great damage) mixed with the Meat Shield (lots of health).
* CripplingOverspecialization: He's useful on maps with armored units, but on infantry only maps, he's practically useless because his SMG is weak.
* MightyGlacier: His RPG packs an awesome punch and he's the only infantry that can effectively deal with armored units, but he's very slow.

!!!Gunner
The Gunner is geared towards protecting areas and suppressing enemies. He has good health and attack. However, he has low mobility, it takes time for him to deploy his LMG, and he cannot attack tanks or aircraft. He is equipped with an LMG, a pistol, and some grenades.
* AnAdventurerIsYou: Mix of The Mezzer (being in his range stops health regeneration, called "suppression") and The Blademaster (hands out hefty DPS).
* BFG: Uses incredibly heavy LMGs that require him to set up a bipod. Though he can shoot without setting up, if he does so, his accuracy is terrible.
* DoNotRunWithAGun: He must stay stationary using a bipod or his LMG will have terrible accuracy.
* GlassCannon: He relies mostly on his suppression and the support of other units; if he doesn't have either, than his requirement of needing to say stationary to fire accurately makes him easy to exploit by Recons and other units.
* MoreDakka: His LMGs are really LMGs in name only, and are only really called that because they are portable (the setting is TwentyMinutesInTheFuture, and by this time all MGs are stationary).
