Who is Creep the Prophet?
The name Creep the Prophet actually started out as a story title I was working on a few years ago. As a story it’s kind of evolved and devolved and will be completed once I retire or end up with a bunch of free time. I used it as a web alias just because, hey, no one else had it, so it’s worked out pretty well for me. For the most part it shortens down to Creep and while I shouldn’t be too stoked about a nickname like that, I don’t really mind.
By the way, I’m not a guy. So if some of my posts sound un-manly, well there you go.
Am I actually creepy?
No not really. While I like the ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ and other spooky styles in artwork and music, it doesn’t define my personality.
So what’s with the tecky stuff?
I’m a geek. While playing games is a fun hobby, I kind of find it more fulfilling to get a block of code to work than to complete raid dungeons. I still enjoy doing both, and sometimes they’re both equally frustrating. In the past I’ve worked with Asp.NET, MSSQL, and C#, but currently I’m doing more work with MySQL and PhP on the WordPress platform. Why? Because it’s neato.
Lately though I do more technical writing than actual coding. It’s not the same thing, but I enjoy writing quite a bit.
What’s with the Game Content?
Well it turns out that I really enjoy games. I’ve been fascinated with the concept of virtual worlds for years and well to me games are virtual words with quests. I’ve enjoyed trying out games and exploring the worlds developed to stage games. Sometimes I get caught up in the games, sometimes I don’t. I played World of Warcraft for over a year and enjoyed my time there. I played Runes of Magic during an after the open beta phase. I also have a collection of Guild Wars games and enjoy popping into those every once and again. Since playing these games has become my hobby, I like to blog about my gaming travels and my thoughts on games in general.
Ok, but why the Blog?
While I know that everyone, they’re cousin, and in some cases even their cat has a blog, the blog its self wasn’t really meant to be a main focus of my site. It’s just kind of become my main focus since it offers me a much needed creative outlet. Trust me on this one. That was also the point for the site. I’d essentially purchased a domain as a place to practice web building. I am however enjoying blogging immensely and I’ll probably keep it up despite my mad scientist nature. (Insert giggles here).
