About Me

I joined Spiral Knights a few months after the release, and enjoyed it enough to still be here. As you may have guessed from my equipment, I use swords the most. When playing lockdown, I go as a striker, but do try to spend time capping as well as attacking the other team.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where did you get your username?

'Hortumal' was the name of my first Dungeons and Dragons character. I retired him at level 84.

Your name is kind of a mouthful. Do you have a nickname?

You can also call me 'Hort' if you want. Most people end up calling me that anyway.

Can I call you 'Hor'?

Please don't.

Can I join your guild?

Sure. As long as you have a good attitude, it does not matter what gear you have.

Can I have some crowns?

NO. Grind a boss stratum or two. Since missions, it has become unspeakably easy for even Teir 1 players to farm several thousand crowns each day.

How come I never see you on the forums?

I have never posted once on the forums. The reasons for this are twofold. First, I am not a fan of Drupal, the company that powers the SK Forums. Also, the forums are almost never a source of intelligent conversation. EDIT: I posted a guild recruitment thread on the forums. If you want to join, leave a comment!

Can I have help with mission x?

I don't usually go out of my way to redo missions with others. However, I do all of the boss missions fairly frequently, so if I am around, I might be able to lend a helping hand on those.

What is your favorite weapon?

I don't really have one. If I had to choose, I would say Electron Vortex-it makes FSC go by twice as fast.

Where can I find you?

I often lurk either in the Haven town square, or in one of the chairs in my unexpanded guild hall.

Can I have some materials?

NO. However, I do sell materials, if you can find me.
