280px A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Hello and welcome to my user page! :) I'm Zerak and a big fan of the Forgotten Realms. I don't play pen and paper much, but I like to read the novels and play the CRPGs like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate.

If you want to ask a question, or just say hello please do so :).

Some rules for writing in English:

  1. Always avoid alliteration.
  2. Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.
  3. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
  4. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
  5. Remember to never split an infinitive.
  6. Contractions aren't necessary.
  7. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos, French is passé.
  8. One should never generalize.
  9. Don’t be redundant; don’t use more words than necessary; it’s highly superfluous.
  10. Be more or less specific.
  11. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
  12. The passive voice is to be avoided.
  13. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
  14. Who needs rhetorical questions?
  15. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
  16. Don't never use no double negation.
  17. Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.
  18. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.
  19. A preposition is a terrible word to end a sentence with.
  20. Don’t overuse exclamation marks!!!!!!!
  21. Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
  22. Last but not least, avoid cliches like the plague; they're old hat; seek viable alternatives.
  23. P.S.: Never use a P.S.
