The Great Demon's Lair MUA HA HA HA HA HA!
& Orcus, archnemesis of Demogorgon, I live deep in the pits of Hell, coming out only at night to raid innocent shopping centres with my deadly horde. If you should come across my black presence (actually its probably more like magenta but don't tell anyone, shhh!) beware as I wield a Wand of Death!
Ooh I'm soooo scary (in my best Dale Winton voice)!
In real life I'm an organic chemist working at Cardiff University in Wales. I am working (slowly to be sure) at adding some more scientific articles to the guide.
Surely this creature cannot be me???!!! Well...maybe
I am a big fan of Liverpool football club. I also closely follow the fortunes of Celtic (my family are mostly glaswegian) and Rushden and Diamonds. For some distractions why not play Master B's Phantasy football tournament or Greydesk's fantasy footie game? The difference lies in the spelling don't you know.
I like reading Science Fiction/ Fantasy novels. Surely an unusual taste amongst h2g2ers . Read Tolkien (go and look at the website for the upcoming film of Lord of The Rings it looks good ), Robert Jordan, Tad Williams, Stephen Donaldson and George R.R. Martin, they're great. Avoid David Eddings, he's rubbish. Oh, and did I mention Douglas Adams, well, he's not bad really.
If the sight of h or L makes you jump out of your chair and you constantly wonder how you're going to take off those cursed Boots of Levitation, then like me you must love the roguelike computer game nethack which is a free, single player, role playing game in the mould of Dungeons and Dragons. Its really really good, but don't play it if you're into good graphics 'cos it aint got none. IMHO gameplay before graphics anyday. You can find out about it on the official Nethack website. I would be most interested to hear from anyone else who plays it and maybe start off a stupid death page for it here on h2g2.
Some nice people I have met on h2g2
The University of Mice
I have recently been installed as an h2g2 mouse. I have the honorary name of Jerry Mouse and I am Professor of Quizology at the University of Mice. You too could go and claim your own professorship. Just pop on over and request a title.

Whose Line Is it Anyway
Anyone who used to join in the various games is welcome to carry on in my newly created temporary home. Hopefully, this bit will eventually (and I do mean eventually) become just a link to the true Whose Line is It Anyway page.
Newcomers are of course, welcome too. Due to h2g2 being h2g2, it's kind of fragmented into various other fora too so click on these links to play the song titles game and Argon0's Book/Story Titles and Movies/plays/TV shows linking games.
Some Fun Distractions
Why not try H2G2's Paperless Paperchase? Its good fun. Also I enjoy taking part in the H2IQ quiz. Sad mad or bad?'s Word Gymnastics is fun, as is the Limerick game. Come and join the fun at castle Camelot.
I am currently a member of these two volunteer groups. Just click on one of the lists below to find another one of my fellow volunteers.
