    Q&A
    What do you like to do IRL? Gaming, building robots, and sitting in the corner whilst I ponder my own existence.
    Favorite animal and why: Magikarp. Such a noble and majestic creature.
    Favorite website: Probably Myspace. I like ancient history.
    Favorite thing about EMC: The fact that I can be as weird as a I want, and no one judges me for it. In fact, many people even meet or surpass my level of weirdness.
    Favorite color and why: Orange. Sunsets are orange, and sunsets are beautiful. A sunset is where I would take my girlfriend (if I had one).
    Favorite Minecraft feature: Even though it's not on EMC yet, mutton. A knight's gotta have his mutton. I like it because it tastes exactly like lamb.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Stone brick. Yeah, I know, I'm boring.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? A bat. I mean, I already drive people batty.
    Favorite music: 80's rock n roll. Can't beat the classics.
    Pets? One kitty name Princess who is both the highlight of my day and the bane of my existence.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? Smell. Such a useless sense.
    Favorite cookie: Chocolate chip.
    Favorite quote: "Maturity doesn't mean putting aside what you loved in your youth. It means no longer being ashamed to do such tings openly" -Steve Maraboli"
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? Myself. Why does everyone else have to have all the luck of getting to meet me?

    crystaldragon13 joined the Moderation team on Jun 15th, 2015. She joined EMC on Oct 26th, 2013. "I was looking for a place to call 'home'. Somewhere I could build and explore and not get griefed or have the server reset every month or so. I wanted a place my daughter and I could play without having to deal with the language and all the other stuff that comes with a server where people just don't care. I was a mod on another server that was a bit better but still I could do just so much.
    I'll tell you what I didn't come here looking for .. a Community. I had no idea that was even possible. I'm so glad all my searching paid off and believe me .. I searched! ,-,"

    Q&A
    What do you like to do IRL? "I love the out doors, exploring all the wonderful little and sometimes big nooks and crannies and the creatures that live there. Water is a big thing for me. I love playing in the water.. rain, puddles, ponds, oceans, etc. Gardening is also one of the things I love to do. Nothing like some good smellin' dirt. mmmhmm lol"
    Favorite animal and why: uuuumm.. :confused: I.. I .. I'm not sure I have a favorite. I really love all animals. i don't know.. I just love animals.
    Favorite website: "youtube? Love learning new things & how to do things for myself so being a visual learner as well as a hands on kinda person, youtube was made just for me! =D
    So cool of them to do that for me. =>"
    Favorite thing about EMC: "What I found that I didn't realize I was looking for .. the Community. I've made friends from all over the world. How awesome is that!!? It's a wonderful place for kids and adults to be get to be able to get together is a safe place and play together, make new friends, meet people you'd never be able to meet. It really does have everything. Where else can you customize your own experience as far as the wild goes? One of the things I really love is that the emphasis isn't on punishment so much as it's giving the person the chance to chose the respectful way of doing things by having consequences to your own actions. Again, that comes back to having a place where that can and does happen. I tell people that I may vacation on another server for a bit but I always come back home to EMC. "
    Favorite color and why: "Such hard questions! D: How to choose just one! Black! =D Artistically speaking it would be all the colors. =] Hmm, why? I guess because it is all the colors. You can pull from that and be any color you feel like atm. Purple is nice too but it's not my color but a nice burnt orange is pretty good too. "
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The addition of animals as pets. =D
    Favorite Minecraft block: "It's a toss up between dirt and sand. Oh! but then there's the pumpkin.
    Dirt.. I guess it would have to be dirt. "
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? "I would be some sort of 'nature' mob. I would be able to repair an area around me such as trees, dirt, etc but you would need to give me at least one of the things needing to be repaired. It probably would be a random formation suited for that biome. I would appear randomly & disappear after the repair. I'd also be glowie. =D"
    Favorite music: I like all kinds of music really. it all depends on the mood I'm in. =]
    Pets? At the moment I have 2 dogs. Nellie, she's an Australian cattle dog & Brownie (I didn't name him that) he's a Standard American Pitbull so he's taller and thinner. I have too many cats. =/ I rescued a mom & her six babies while visiting my Grandma in OK (while the last tornado's came rippin' thru a couple of years ago). So if any of you would like a very soft and lovable kitty... hint(not Lucky or BKpony lol). Talk to me. They would need to be house cats. Just sayin'.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? " O_O Really? You gonna make me choose? Well, let me think. . .taste. Now I'm thinking about all the things I'd miss.. good chocolate, a nice glass of wine, yummy foods. D: As bad as that would be .. losing the others would be worse i think."
    Favorite cookie: shortbread made with real butter. mmmmm
    Favorite quote: Completely blanking here.. I'm sure as soon as I hit submit I'll get a ton of 'em flying thru mai brain but for now I got nothin'.
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? "Wow, so many... Susan B. Anthony. I love to be able to tell her that what she did mattered not just for women but for everyone. That ball she help push along is still rolling and expanding right for everyone .. albeit rather slowly sometimes."

    CrystallineRaven (formerly MercenaryCrow) joined the Moderation Team on Sep 17th, 2015. She joined EMC on Oct 14th, 2012."Was looking for basically exactly what EMC offers. Key point- no PvP. I tried EMC and never looked back. The Community is what really makes it what it is.I'm proud to be a part of that Community, giving back to regular players and being for newcomers what you all have been for me."

    Q&A
    What do you like to do IRL? "My hobbies include:» SCUBA » Paintball » Chanmaille» Web Design» Costuming » Learning to play the violin"
    Favorite animal and why: "Raccoon, because they are just like me. Known for mischief, intelligent, efficient scavengers/innovators, very clean. Not to mention cute!But I'm also fond of rabbits and bunnies. Most of my affection for this species is influenced by the book: ""The First Book of Lapism"" by Phil Geusz."
    Favorite website: "FurAffinity.netI am a huge fan of anthropomorphic animal characters (I'm a furry). They just seem able to emote much better than human characters. And animals themselves are the same way.When you learn to speak an amimal's ""language,"" your bond grows immensely!"
    Favorite thing about EMC: "Community, hands down! So much love and support! Not to mention the love and support! Did I mention the love and support?
    I'm also indescribably amazed by the skill and dedication of Aikar and the Dev team, as well as the Build Team. Heck, the Empire Staff as a whole just seems to operate on a level of efficiency unparalleled even in well-paid positions!"
    Favorite color and why: "Green because it is the color of growth.
    Blue, because it is the color of clarity, pureness and cool temperatures (and the freedom of the wide, open sky)."
    Favorite Minecraft feature: The crafting system. Not only can you make everything, but many things you're gonna want have to be crafted from materials you, yourself are forced to gather. Crafting things through multiple levels instills a real sense of personality and ownership to your creations- especially if they're enchanted!
    Favorite Minecraft block: Redstone Block. It's reversible, functional, can be moved by pistons to create more convoluted machines (lol) and they represent my second favorite aspect of Minecraft- Redstone machines!
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do?: I love the implied backstory of the Endermen.They plague the player long before even learning of the End. They're so unique, you can't even look at them without drawing their ire- unless you wear a mask, which implies an alien sort of intelligence- smart, yet unlearned.They are ignored by hostile mobs and ignore the player. They just wander around doing nothing. They occasionally grab a block, but only certain types. This implies the player is born with a natural aptitude for mining/crafting (perhaps simply because the player is native to this world/universe). They also can't stand water, and completely freak out during rain.Once you reach the End, you realize it's their home realm. You see the bleakness of their place of origin and begin to sympathize with their journey to the Overworld and their fascination with building. It's almost as though they're simply trying to be more like you, but get scared when you focus on them because they see you kill everything else that moves.Or have they simply observed this of other adventurers? That's a story for another time ^_~"
    Favorite music: "Electro/DanceThe fewer lyrics the better.But I still enjoy pretty much everything else (except rap and reggae)."
    Pets?: "I've cats and dogs my whole life. Or have they been my family's? I don't have time to own/train/properly care for an animal of my own, but my dream pet is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
    I also love large and intelligent birds. Especially black ones... what are they called again?"
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be?: Taste. It's the one sense I could live without. I cant' imagine life without vision, being trained in the visual arts. I would wither without music, or at least a hearty beat. Touch is important to many activities at which I strive to excel. Smell has more to experience than taste, so I could at least smell what I'm eating.
    Favorite cookie: Double Chocolate Chunk ^~^
    Favorite quote: "I'm like a Steam engine- pressure drives me!"~MercenaryCrow
    If you could meet one person, who would it be?: Me from the future, so she could give me hope.
    Aditional random stuff you want to say: Donde fueras, has lo que vieras.

He was our "god", cause I tended to cheat and I wanted an all vanilla server. After getting fed up with the people that wanted to join my little server, I told MC to go and find me a server that was like the one I had but, well... not run by me. After some digging around... EMC is what he found."

    Q&A
    What do you like to do IRL? I play computer games, I play with my Sapling, she will be 2 years old in August. I crochet, I also like my job, I work at a post office, and you would never believe the joy of working there, handing people the parcel they have been waiting for :D

    Favorite color and why: Purple... Well... when me and MC met, it was through a dating website, and we were joking on moving in together as roommates, and he wanted to paint everything purple. And it kinda span from there. if there was ever a color theme in anything we did, it was/is purple.

    Favorite Minecraft block: Glowstone.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? Usually I would say all day everyday a dragon... I have some tattoos of them. But after the creeper rap, I must say a creeper. They are... so sneaky.
