The idea of this project is to interview active and well-known community members to learn more about them.  Each member will be asked the ultimate questions on Life, the Elements, and everything.  Answers will hopefully be entertaining, educational, or something you can use against these people in PvP.

Interviews are not posted in any particular order.  We will start with seasoned veterans and work our way down to newer members but post counts don't matter that much; what matters more is who we bump into in Chat or the forums.  Council will also try to add some members who are in the spotlight during that particular moment, for example being assigned a new forum job or title, or winning a PvP event.



CURRENTLY FEATURED MEMBER:

Spoiler for Hidden:

Kalinuial



Master of Earth
Rocking PvP Player
Overall Great Guy


Why did you choose your forum name? Is there any inspiration behind it?
Itís a name I made it when I was a teenager and I guess it stuck.  The name was inspired by Tolkienís elvish language.  I think the name means ďRadiant music of the twilightĒ.  Iíve always liked music and especially listening to music at night.  I still do most nights.  I have an old-fashioned MP3 player that keeps me up when I should be sleeping.  Lately, I listen to music in bed and think about the decks that will shake the ground next war.

How did you find Elements the game?
I was looking for a fantasy-themed, strategic game.  I didnít have much savings at the time and was typically looking for free/low-cost games.  I tried Elements out and really enjoyed the simplicity and thematic aspect. 

What are some of your favorite games, besides EtG? (Aves)
Nothing else, really.  At times, Iíve been into various games, but nothing that Iíve stuck with as long as EtG.  Honestly, Iím still waiting for the ďperfectĒ game to hit me.  Itís probably best it doesnít, otherwise it might completely take over my life. 

When you are not on the internet, how do you like to spend your time? (DoctorC)
I live in the Finger Lakes region of New York.  Itís an absolutely beautiful area and Iíve been here just over a year.  In recent days, Iíve done the following: biked, swam in a lake (4 days in a row), ran to a giant waterfall, read fiction by Japanese authors, watched anime, cooked, visited the local library, listened to a lot of music, and hung out with my two cats.  In a nutshell, I like to relax, breathe, and think.

What weighs more, a pound of rocks or a pound of feathers? (InsignificantWeeaboo)
Scientifically, they weigh the same.  Spiritually, Iíd say rocks weigh more than feathers.  Theyíve been around for ages and taken on a lot of the worldís weight.

Who is your favorite from the previous Masters of Earth? (Submachine)
I couldn't say.  Because I'm pretty new, I didn't have a chance to meet the previous masters. I'm sure they all rock.   

Outside this forum, who/what is your favorite fictional character related to earth/ground/sand/etc? (Submachine)
The quintessential earth character is Gaara from Naruto.  His versatile manipulation of earth and sand, both for offensive and defensive purposes, is impressive.  However, I wouldn't say he's a favorite character of mine.  I'll say Gurren Lagann is my favorite character.  Gurren Lagann is kind of a like a shard golem (can retool itself in many way).  And he can turn himself in to various drill-type shapes and travel through earth's crust.  Imagine a Shrieker coming through Earth's surface.  Gurren has that explosive kind of power.  Gurren's drill is the drill that creates the heavens.  But don't tell  :aether that.
   
Does the earth element have any special meaning to you for being a favorite? (Anonymous)
Yes.  Earth to me represents deep satisfaction from the simple things in life.  For a long time, brown was my favorite color. I had a lot of brown clothes.  I didnít meet many people growing up that loved brown.  But, itís a great color.  In fact, as Iím writing this, Iím wearing a brown t-shirt.  I think our actual Earth is a beautiful, fascinating place.  Some people dream of exploring the universe and living on other planets.  Not me.  Iíd love to stay here for the long haul and become earth dust.
 
"If my memory serves earlier I saw a Japanese flag by your profile, but now I see an American. What is the cause of this?" (Wyand)
Yes, I originally had Japan as my flag because I wish I was from there or could say I lived there.  I changed it because it may have confused some people for PVP purposes, as they might think I live in a different time zone.

How does it feel to become a Master of an element after being relatively new to the community? (mathman101)
Is ďdeepĒ a feeling?  Thatís how I feel.  Iíve gotten ďdeeperĒ as a result of becoming Master of Earth.  Itís like one of those scenes from a Haruki Murakami book Ė thereís a deep, deep well with dirt and sand (no water) and Iím down there thinking about the nature of elements, the interconnections, the battles that are yet to come. Iíll probably be down there until War is over.

Do you think you will be able to live up to the standards of past Earth Masters? (Anonymous)
No, but I think I can live down to them. 

Any final words or comments?
Do the impossible, see the invisible. / Row! Row! Fight the power! / Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable/ Row! Row! Fight the power!

Thanks for answering!

I like how you mentioned the War 3 match vs Tiko Higs! I remember spectating that match and it was a very tense and even matchup. Losing it was a hard blow!

Somehow you've really represented :aether as an element and Fractix-enthousiasm for me. I think the interview reflects that very well. I also like how you consistently stay true to a philosophy and stick to a certain theme throughout various forum events and chat discussions.

Nice job on the interview overall SG, was fun to read.

Thanks Japp. I always try to be sincere, and I do think a philosophy, or vision, is the most important part of being Master. It's something higher to strive for, which reflects on the entire element, all its fans, and your actual life as well.

I'm also glad you gave me an excuse to post here so I can follow this thread easier. Very much looking forward to seeing more interviews. The best part is that it's barely any work for SG. :P

Having a staff title and being well-known aren't mutually inclusive. BluePriest (and forgive me for using you as an example) seems well known by the general community because of his high post count in general and participation in off-topic sections, but he doesn't have a staff title.

Yes, but "active and well-known" is rather ambiguous. Is she taking people with the highest post count? Those who have participated in the most events? Been staff members the longest? Etc, etc.

Cool....I remember I was in a community that had interviews like this, people would ask things to that person for a week and the one interviewed  would choose another one. The way SG did seems to be much better though.

Looking forward for the next one!

Another great idea from SG.  I can not express how good I think this is.  It will be very interesting to learn more about the most known and popular members, as well as less known but still valuable members.  Just putting this out there, I would love to be one of the people interviewed.
