Hey everybody, Arte here. I have a name, indeed, but it is not Arte, as you may have been lead to believe by my short, sweet, and to-the-point username. My name is Mike, and I am from Michigan. I am 20 and a senior in college. My degree plan is Christian ministry, and I work at a church. However, whatever notions you may or may not have about that last one, I am an easy-going person who likes to have fun. Hence, Maplestory and Southperry.
I have many nicknames, and most non-offensive ones are welcomed with open arms.
I began playing Maplestory in the year 2006, when I didn't actually have a computer to play it with. I would look always forward to going to family functions where they had computers I could play on. Once I got my own, however, I became a right old addict, playing constantly but being terrible at training (hence level 12x seven years later). I have quit off and on several times due to life complications, but I have always come back and likely always will.
I am a tried and true Windian, and the beloved guild that I have belonged to since '07, KoopaForce, is on the path to revival again. I was formerly a member of Southperry, but life complications got to me once more and I had to leave. However, I am glad to be back! I always enjoyed my short time here and look back on it fondly. My main character is named, quite simply, 'Eroding,' so chat me up.
I enjoy long walks on the beach, ultimate frisbee, Chinese food, coffee, Magic the Gathering, and video games.
Good to be back, and hope to get to know all of you much better soon.
