Zalepriest Intro

Recommended Posts

Hello friends!

 

My name is Matthew, and my character's name is Zalepriest. I am of friend of Kai, Soju, and Gesari! I have been playing WOW off-and-on since vanilla. I have hardcore raiding experience from vanilla, burning crusade, WOTLK, and MOP. I no longer have time to hardcore raid but still very much enjoy the game and play more casually. I'm relatively quiet when it comes to voice coms and primarily enjoy challenging myself while pushing better and better parses. If I join your guild I would be very interested in running mythics, old content, and achievement hunting.

 

I work in healthcare and as such I'm use to working with an extremely diverse group of people and highly value a professionalism, teamwork, and comradery. I have been part of several very competitive guilds during my previous raiding experiences and many of them fell apart due to toxic members who slowly created descent between the group and ultimately caused the guild to fall apart. As such, I am looking for very friendly and casual players who take raiding seriously while we are doing it but aren't malignant to their fellow guildies. I like to consider myself very versatile and I'm willing to heal or dps as needed. I main a priest with my primary alt being a warlock.

 

In my free time I enjoy cooking, playing summoners war on my phone, working out, making candles, and playing board games with friends.

Let me be the first to say hai. We do a lot of board games at my house. Which leads me to actual questions, partly because my brain is not currently fried.

 

Favorite board game?

Will you be getting Small World of Warcraft?

Hey Matthew! I'm a big fan of the shortened "Matty", are you a "Matty" or would that drive you nuts?

I'm a "Bradly" but it kind of drives me nuts so I just go by Brad. Sometimes Bardly is acceptable as well. Mordi and Mordigrim are also always welcome.

In my opinion the culture of SoH is the defining trait of the guild and I personally take great pride in that. Friendship and community are two of the six core values of our Code of Conduct. I believe that SoH is exactly the type of guild that you're describing.

You say you like to cook, what are your three favorite things to make? Anything you make have any special meaning to you? I love to cook, too. One of my favorite things to make is chicken Alfredo with my homemade Alfredo sauce because it's my wife's favorite dish. It's not my fanciest or most technical dish but she loves it and it makes me happy to bring her joy. 

If you had to describe your interests using a list of ten or fewer movies, shows, books, games, or other media what are some things that would definitely make your list?

What are your top three favorite scents for candle-making (I assume you scent your candles)? 

Look forward to your answers, feel free to hit me back with your own questions.

Merriwhizzle,

 

My favorite board game right now is probably Spirit Island, although honestly my "favorite" changes often depending on my mood and who I'm playing with. I'm not sure if I will be buying small World of Warcraft, if I do it will be a good while because I just moved to Chicago from South Carolina for a job and moving is expensive!

 

Mordigrim

 

I'm not necessarily opposed to being called "Matty". I usually tell people I don't mind too much how people refer to me as long as it is a term of endearment.

 

Now to answer your other questions:


1. You say you like to cook, what are your three favorite things to make? Anything you make have any special meaning to you? I love to cook, too. One of my favorite things to make is chicken Alfredo with my homemade Alfredo sauce because it's my wife's favorite dish. It's not my fanciest or most technical dish but she loves it and it makes me happy to bring her joy. 

 

I think I derive the large majority of my joy from cooking from actually eating the food and making it for my friends! Therefore, a lot of my "favorite" things to make are more associated with a particular scenario. For example, I love to have friends over for breakfast/coffee. I enjoy making a big breakfast with bacon/sausage, eggs, toast, pancakes, potatoes etc and just sitting down and enjoying the calm of the early morning! I also really enjoy baking and one of the more simple but fun things to make for me personally are scones (as they are so highly customizable and fun to eat). For a dinner item I would probably choose cooking steak with roasted vegetables and some kind of starch. I know the steak answer is super basic but cooking steak properly can be a somewhat difficult task and I it's always super fulfilling to get a steak just right (especially when you're cooking it for someone else).

2. If you had to describe your interests using a list of ten or fewer movies, shows, books, games, or other media what are some things that would definitely make your list?

 

At the very top of the list would no doubt be the Lord of the Rings. I've always been interested in fantasy but the books and movies hold a very special place in my heart in regards to my adolescent years. So starting from the top I would list:

 

1. The Lord of the Rings

2. World of Warcraft

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

4. The Elder Scrolls

5. Scrubs

6. Parks and Recreation

7. Morgan and Mikhail's Clinical Anesthesiology

8. How to Cook Everything

9 Dungeon's and Dragons Player Manual

3. What are your top three favorite scents for candle-making (I assume you scent your candles)? 

1. My favorite by far is a scent made by Candlescience called "White Tea and Berry"

2. I enjoy almost all balsam scented candles (regardless of the season although this is traditionally more of a winter or holiday scent)

3. I'm partial to sandalwood in general.

 

This last question is difficult to answer because honestly my favorite scents change all the time (especially if I am exposed too much to the same scent). But overall I'm drawn more to "earthy" scents as opposed to super fruity or what I would call "clean" or "soapy scents" (fresh cotton would be an example of this category).

Sometimes perfecting a seemingly-simple thing can be far more impressive than doing a complicated thing adequately. I too love to make a good steak for friends or family. A perfectly seared, medium-rare ribeye basted in butter with garlic, oregano, and rosemary is a thing of beauty. I've converted several people who thought they liked a medium-well/well-done lean sirloin or filet best.

I totally understand! My favorites of anything change all the time, whether it be scents, food, music, movies, or whatever. I don't make candles but I do really like scents, I'm obsessed with Bath and Body Works. I really like warm vanilla, vanilla and coconut, and shea butter scents right now. Sometimes I get really into citrus and fruity scents though, for a while I was really enjoying this lemon and pomegranate scented soap I had. My wife likes clean scents but they all smell oddly artificial to me and I don't prefer them. 

Do you sell the candles you make or is it more of a hobby? I dye disc golf discs and everyone always asks me if I sell them but I don't, I just do it for my own enjoyment. My wife thinks I do it because I enjoy spending money :lol:

I love earthy scented things. They can be kind of hard to find, though. I always want to smell like a forest or some nice, dark spices. Or like rain. Rain is good, too.

 

I feel you on the constantly rotating list of favorites. Trying to pin down only one or a few favorites of anything is so hard. There's so much out there to enjoy! 

 

Steak is definitely one of those things that is just so satisfying to nail - both from the cooking and eating perspectives. I think all of my favorite things to make are simple foods. They're the ones with good memories attached or just foods that make me feel good. 

 

Have you tried any of Ryan Laukat's games? I stan. I would highly recommend "Above and Below" and/or "Near and Far"

I do not sell my candles I mainly give them away to friends or as personal gifts.

 

I have not played "Above and Below" or "Near and Far" but my best friend was always trying to get me to try it!!
