Formerly Sorcerer Blob

I love table-top gaming, specifically D&D 3.5, 4E D&D, and Pathfinder. While those may be my main games, I am always open to trying something new.

I am also a huge comic book nerd, having been around them my entire life. I grew up with them as bed-time stories and have continued reading them to this day. I'll read just about anything as long as it is exciting, fun, and interesting.

In addition to that I am also a huge History buff, researcher, and perpetual student. History is very much my life. I enjoy playing Devil's Advocate and coming up with different and sometimes controversial takes on certain historical events and figures.

I also love the German language and have been learning and practicing it off and on for the past 10 years. This is another area that I consider myself to be a perpetual student.

I also an am avid runner, pet lover, reader, and more.

comment Differences between “obwohl” and “obgleich” and when to use them?
@Hendrik Even when I meant to jokingly use it today I forgot, so chances are I will only use obwohl. I have a hard enough time having the courage to speak German out loud, much less using a word that would get strange looks!

I assume by "Grimm" you are referring to the fairy tales? If so, that definitely puts the archaic nature of obgleich into better perspective.

I spoke with my professor and she echoed pretty much the same thing. She said that I would likely never hear "obgleich," but that if I wanted to ever use it, by all means do so. She is also a nerd when it comes to not frequently used German words and often encourages learning words that we wouldn't often hear.

comment Difference between “euch” and “du”? And some insight into words like “Spiel”?
Great answer. Being from the South in the US I've always just associated "euch" with "y'all." For me, that's the easiest way to remember as they mean the same thing.
