The Liebster Award

So, there is something going on in the blogosphere called the Liebster Awards. Basically it is something where you tell 11 facts about yourself, answer 11 questions posed by someone else and then proceed to create another 11 questions and nominate 5 other bloggers to answers your questions. Or something like that. The intention seems to be to get to know a bit more from the bloggers behind all the game opinions, war stories sharing and other game-related topics that don’t tell much about the person behind the pseudonym. At the same time it is a way to encourage readers to go check other blogs that might get missed for a reason or another.

I have no idea who started it but I got nominated by Ravanel of the blog Ravalation. So you can blame her for the horrors I am about to inflict on the world. :p
