This Troper is an every-other generation MMORPG player. He played Ultima Online from 1998 to 2000 and Dark Age Of Camelot from 2002 to 2005. He is waiting for World Of Warcraft to settle down until he starts the next generation.
Also, his handle was created during a period where he used the names of Black Metal musicians for online aliases. On finding that Ihsahn from Emperor was already taken (for DAoC's Tristan server, as memory serves him}, he decided to scramble a few letters around and came up with Ilshan.
