--Interview of the Player of the Month--

I sat down with our newest Player of the Month, Khaffen, to talk with him about his online gaming experience, and all things Foo.

Ghara: Tell us a bit about yourself.
Khaffen: Well, it's been a while since my Intro thread. I am waiting on my 50th birthday. I garden for a living. I am a big fan of Renaissance Festivals. I wear a kilt to in/formal gatherings. (Clan Campbell)

Ghara: Do you have any hobbies or crafts you enjoy?
Khaffen: I have a large reef system. I have one Bonsai tree. I have about 60 orchids.

Ghara: When did you join the guild and how did your membership come about?
Khaffen: I joined during Beta. I accepted a randomish tell while on DK and found out it was Foo. I racked my brain but can't remember how I associated it with MMO's. I found the Beta gang to be very lively and quite helpful. Kilth recommended that I check out the Guild site and the rest is history!

Ghara: If you have serviced or are serving as an officer, tell us about that experience.
Khaffen: I have not. I have in WoW with another Guild, but not with Foo.

Ghara: What was your first impression of the guild?
Khaffen: Smart.

Ghara: How has that impression changed over time?
Khaffen: It hasn't.

Ghara: What does the guild mean to you?
Khaffen: To me, a Guild is about community. It's socialization for me. I can help, and be helped, without a lot of stress.

Ghara: What games have you played with Foo?
Khaffen: Just SW:TOR

Ghara: What is it about the guild that has made you stick with it through the years?
Khaffen: Sometime this summer, I will be at a year with Foo, if we count Beta. Instead, I will say what kept me with my WoW guild for years. It's a kind of family. I know the peeps, like the peeps, and enjoy the banter. I like that a conversation can occasionally go deeper without stepping on toes.

Ghara: What advice do you have for new members?
Khaffen: Get involved. Speak up. ATTEND FOOCON!

Ghara: If you could change anything about the guild, what would it be?
Khaffen: I am not a big "changer". Things are what they are. Warts and beauty marks go together. =)

Ghara: Why do you think you were chosen as POTM?
Khaffen: I have no clue. I have tried my best to step up and help. So much about SW:TOR needs an instruction manual. My time in Beta can help, and I am happy to do that. I am also charming, contrarian and sometimes vulgar.

Ghara: What do you look forward to in the next year online?
Khaffen: Valor Rank 100. That's one goal. A second and third level 50.

Ghara: What is your favorite memory gaming with Foo?
Khaffen: Datacron hunting on Taris and NS with Kilth. But more memorable is my (pitiful) attempt to direct Kilth to a 'cron on Taris in Guild Chat. ;)

Ghara: What kind of rig do you game with?
Khaffen: One I built. Gigabyte MoBo. AMD Phenom III BE. 12GB's DDR. 2 x 5770's in Crossfire (...for which I thank all those who helped me with that decision on our forums). All in a Silverstone case.

Thank you Khaffen for your participation, its been a pleasure getting to know you better and Congratulations on being chosen for PotM for January 2012!! :cool:
