"Faux's evil plans never get past the third whiskey bottle."-Parable Laconic; A cranky old Veteran with a thing for culture, world building, philosophy and language which keeps him coming back occaisionally to TV Tropes. Will speak French and try to figure out/insert Irish Gaelic at every opportunity, though his fluency at both [especially written] is questionable at best. Long version; Fauxlosophe has been kicking around for fivish years now, having joined up for the Mythril Aces RP, eventually even getting his own spin off. Both ran very successfully for about two years and a year respectively and are fondly remembered, leading to a reboot which aims at more nuianced gameplay and storytelling, which can be found here. It is currently full, but putting a character sheet up makes you first on the waitlist or [with sufficent applicants] a candidate for a PC group. Since then, he became a relatively prolific member of the R Ping community for some time, even netting 3rd place in a general election for RP mod behind Daltar and Parable. Yet, while his free time shrank and interest waned somewhat with time, he still remembers the site fondly as it saw him through highschool and into graduate studies. He also goes by Meta Ad Infinitum occaisionally, and for a long time edited and ran a Philosophy themed RPG designed from the ground up refered to as Dungeons and Discourse, inspired originally by the Dresden Codak strip of the same name [though we later distanced ourselves from him]. It is currently defunct but entirely usable, with the odd campaign brought to my attention. Right now, outside of summers and other breaks, my spare time tends to be pretty sparse and I tend to keep my participation fairly minimal and limit myself to games where I know the GM and/or many of the players. My focus now tends to be on indepth world building, nuanced characters and gallows humour, while balancing players' wants with storytelling and plot needs, though I'm not above the occaisional pulpy raunt with friends.

Faux Analysis: Elaborate worldbuilder with a language fetish rivaling Tolkein himself. Favors serious and mellow characters with very precise ethnic origins, sometimes stooping to outright snarky cynics. Stories are filled with numerous plots, Chekhov guns and detailed NPC backstories. Will write songs and poems in other languages for a single scene or player. Suffers fools poorly. Will actually kill a character.
