Age: between 30 and 40.
Job: flight dispatcher at an international airport.
Studies: Degree and Master in Physics.
Known languages: English, French, Lombard, Italian, Spanish (but also: ancient Latin, some German, a little bit of Swahili).
Hobbies: Snowboarding, cooking, Franco-Belgian bande-dessinée.
Mental problems (just kidding!): addicted to role-playing videogames, addicted to making tables and lists, addicted to StrategyWiki.
Dislikes: acronyms ("unnecessary haste"), loanwords (enjoy one language at a time!), hypenations ("punctuation placeholders"), nouns used as if they were verbs (Calvin & Hobbes teach: "Verbing weirds language").

My Character Class Triangles
|These are the diagrams I originally made to understand the professions in Ultima 3, and later found that can be applied to any role-playing video game.
|In some role-playing video games there is no distinction between "healers" and "offensive mages", therefore a slightly different approach can be more useful.
