Tropers / Gaunt 88

Hello there. I'm Gaunt, budding scientist and wannabe author hailing from Australia.

I'm an avid gamer, but I'm more interested in the story mode than multplayer. I also consume way too many Science Fiction books and anime for my own good.

My first gaming love was Halo, and as such it holds a special place in my heart. I'm also a fan of the Marathon, Mass Effect, and Deus Ex series, as well as "real-world" tactical shooters like Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon. I enjoy turn-based strategy games like Advance Wars and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2, and I used to play Warhammer 40K regularly. I have recently discovered a love for arcadey air-combat-sims like H.A.W.X and Ace Combat.

On the anime/manga front, I'm a big fan of Ghost in the Shell, Code Geass, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha and Negima!. I follow several webcomics, mainly Girl Genius, Homestuck, Gunnerkrigg Court and Darths & Droids. Tv shows I follow include Spooks and Doctor Who, and I'm a fan of web shows such as Zero Punctuation and LoadingReadyRun.

My PM sprite avatar came from here -


  • Man, it's looking lonely here. Welcome back to the Arena, by the way. -Art92
    • Why, thank you. Hopefully I'll stick around longer this time >.>
  • Iji, Subaru, and Garrus all walk into a bar... -Hydrall
    • Then Subaru got plastered and inflicted blatant fanservice on Iji while Garrus drank himself into oblivion. The End.
  • Hola Gaunt. You're still missed as the commander to the old Castellian. -Regards, Faux.
  • Get back to work, fellow GM! I've had enough of your slacking! Real life can wait! - Doctor Thunder
  • Salutations, Gaunt! ...Yep, starting to get bored of vandalism now. ~ Kiri Ame
    • How do you expect to be a true Vandal with that attitude?
  • Mauler ready! -desdendelle
  • Science rules! — Belfagor
