    What do you like to do IRL? I like to go camping with my friends/family and I love random spontaneous road trips with my mates, driving around the country with them. My family and I are also really into fishing. Lastly for an active hobby I like to play dodge ball with a group of good friends.
    Favorite animal and why: My favorite animal is the platypus. I love them because they are unique and I love unique people/animals.
    Favorite website: My favorite website is YouTube. I love spending time looking at different videos and learning things/laughing at things. I enjoy comedy channels the most out of all of them.
    Favorite thing about EMC: My favorite thing about EMC is the Economy. I enjoy seeing that it is run by people who enjoy working together and keeping their shops/friendships alive together.
    Favorite color and why: My favorite color is Royal blue. I find blue is a peaceful color.
    Favorite Minecraft block: Lapis, because it is my favorite color and I enjoy the texture.
    If you were a mob in Minecraft, what would you be and what would you do? A spider. I'd definitely find the biggest, grandest build I could find and make a home of web to invite more to. After all, who doesn't like a party.
    Favorite music: Generally easy going. Probably rock/metal more than others but generally whatever's playing.
    Pets? 2 self sustaining 3rd generation gold fish.
    If you had to lose one sense, what would it be? I would be okay losing my smelling. I feel it is the least important of the senses.
    Favorite cookie: My favorite cookie would be ANZAC biscuits.
    Favorite quote: "Honesty is the best policy." -Benjamin Franklin
    If you could meet one person, who would it be? I would love to meet Qkazooo. Over the past few weeks we have gotten to know each other really well. A week ago I asked her to be my girlfriend and I was so happy when she said Yes! I'd love the chance to get to know her more and travel around America with her.

    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."

    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.
