Hello there. my name is Phil, my IGN is PhilGrocholl. I am not brand new to The Empire, I played here back in January of this year (2014), but ended up on another server that is closed for a while. anyway, I am 41, single, no kids, and I am an Over The Road Truck Driver. I run mostly the midwest and west coast states, but I prefer to run in the southeast when I can. We haul food, everything from pizzas and ice cream to meat and cheese to produce and pies. My home is in upstate New York, in the beautiful Catskill Mountains, where I have lived all my life.I got into Minecraft after being bored with other games like The Sims 3, and some games on the iPhone. A few popular Simmers made a lets play video about Minecraft, and it looked like they were having so much fun, that I decided I had to try it too! Needless to say, I was hooked, and I've been playing ever since I started in December 2013.what i like best about Empire is the generous plots we have to build on, and the fact that it is Not PVP! There always seem to be people online so it never seems to be dull. without multiplayer, I'm not sure I would have stuck with it, but I'm glad I did, cause it's fun, and I'm having a blast! meeting lots of people from all over the world is exciting too. I play on SMP4, so I hope to see y'all round the neighborhood!
