Hrmm... where to start? Well, I started playing Urban Dead in October 2007. I currently play (or have played) all sides of Urban Dead; a survivor, zombie, PKer, bounty hunter, death cultist, and dual nature.
I believe playing the game in those different roles has given me a well rounded understanding of the game, how it works, and respect for my opposition. As a survivor I know exactly what to expect when defending against zombies, simply because I know what it's like to be on the other side of the barricades. In turn, while playing as a zombie I know what survivors' weaknesses are because I've been in their position before. The same goes for death culting, PKing, and bounty hunting. Playing the game from more than one perspective is something I'd recommend to just about any player.
I'm also a big fan of metagaming, and use forums/IRC pretty much everyday to coordinate and chat with other players (who are totally awesome). I've met some terrific people through metagaming in Urban Dead, and wouldn't trade them for the world.
Most recently I participated in Mall Tour 2009, and was able to lead a strike team: Midnight Snack Attack! MSA was very successful and we didn't want to split up at the end of the Tour so we've decided to form our own group. My other main focus has been on my survivor group, 404: Barhah not found
. 404 has picked up some great members recently, and is really flourishing.
I used the coding of 404: Barhah not found's
group page as a guide to designing this
page, along with other codes I learned from dgw and Iscariot, and of course, trial and
