About me[edit]

Age: between 30 and 40.

Job: flight dispatcher at an international airport.

Studies: Degree and Master in Physics.

Location: France.

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").

Accomplishments[edit]

Way to go!
A little thank you…
For getting the Ultima V: Warriors of Destiny guide to completion stage 4! Here's your cookie :P
Hugs, Notmyhandle (talk contribs).
Hugs, ~~~~
  • 13 May 2013: I'm particularly proud of this cookie, because not only it was the first guide I completed, but also the first one I started! I pretty much did 90% of it. Anyway, I'm asked to add more images to it.
  • March 2015: I added all the required images.
Thanks again!
A little thank you…
For ... Wooooo! Congratulations on completing such a guide on your own! That's a major accomplishment! Buckets of cookies for you, sir. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:59, 26 March 2014 (UTC).

  • I'm proud of this for many reasons. First, because it required more effort than the one above; second, because I felt redeemed from some trouble I caused, and it closes that chapter; third, because it is now the most complete guide on The 7th Saga available on the web; fourth, because if it was a less obscure and less unforgiving game, it could be nominated for 0005.svg Featured Guide.
That text is the result of a lazy localization team, it's still not correct. Following an incorrect example is still incorrect. Procyon 05:15, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Since one of the owners wrote it, I will enforce it. If a localization team made a mistake, I will report a corrected text instead.

I prefer old video games[edit]

Other significant guide contibutions:

My Character Class Triangles[edit]

These are the diagrams I originally made to understand the professions in Ultima 3, and later found that can be applied to any role-playing video game.

Legend:

  • Top: characters with no magic powers;
  • Bottom: characters with great magic powers;
  • Left: characters with healing magic ("white");
  • Right: characters with offensive magic ("black").
In some role-playing video games there is no distinction between "healers" and "offensive mages", therefore a slightly different approach can be more useful.

Legend:

  • Top: characters with limited magic powers;
  • Bottom: characters with great magic powers;
  • Left: characters with great strength;
  • Right: characters with great dexterity.
