Wolcen - Full Release!

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is going into full release on Feb 13th, 2020!  I've been following this ARPG since it was first Kickstarted way back in 2015.  I've played it once or twice throughout the development process... Some Alpha, some Beta.  Overall it has come along very nicely, and I have high hopes for the future of this game.  This game has been discussed as once of the top games that will be pit against Diablo IV for the next generation of ARPG's on the market.  I know Cecil and I will be playing for sure.  Come join us in-game and on Discord!

Smite - Free To Play.

Smite is a 3D fantasy MOBA where players take on the role of mythological gods and battle in team-based arenas. Unlike other MOBAs, SMITE puts you directly onto the battlefield with a third-person action viewpoint. From blind-side ambushes to aimed shots, a new pantheon of strategic possibilities awaits.  Become a legend of myth, enter the Battleground of the Gods, and play FREE now!

Game Modes:
Conquest – the main 5v5 game mode. Features three lanes and a jungle area filled with neutral monsters. Arena – a 5v5 game mode with an open battle area rather than lanes. Each team begins with 500 points and must reduce the other side's to zero by killing heroes, minions, and escorting allied minions to portals. Joust – a 3v3 game mode with a single lane which otherwise plays like Conquest mode. Joust can also be played 1v1. Assault – similar to ARAM (All Random, All Mid) in LoL, players are assigned a random God and fight on a map with a single lane. Siege – a faster version of Conquest. Siege mode consists of only two lanes and contains a special Siege Juggernaut minion that deals extra damage to structures.
Never played a battle arena before? Don’t worry. Auto-buy, auto-level, and the deathmatch-like Arena mode let you jump right into divine MOBA action. Aspiring pro? Top the ladders, join a competitive team, and you too could be playing at the SMITE World Championship.

Hiyas everyone. My name is Scott Michael Olson. I just returned to SWTOR today after a few years away. I also am returning to COTP,  as I was a member when I last played SWTOR. It's really good to be welcomed back by all of you. I love to talk and socialize, so you'll probably see me a lot on the Covenant Discord as well as in-game. I have both Alliance and Sith characters in SWTOR, but my main is "Tsaz-Taxek," a Jedi Sage currently at level 65.

A little or a lot about me? I'm currently 52 year of age. I'll be 53 in January 2021. I am a professional church musician for the last forty years - I started as choir director of my boyhood church when I was 12. I play pipe organ, piano, and sing Bass. I also have a home recording studio, and I very recently invested in it with my Stimulus money from the IRS. I am making a new foray into EDM, Trap,Hip-Hop, andTrance music. I live alone in a nice studio apartment with my favorite companion, my kitty, Ebony Cynthia Olson.

I won a roughly six month battle with Stage III Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma (cancer) last year in 2019. I've been in remission since around July/August of 2019, and my latest CAT scan this week showed no abnormalities and no sign of any recurring cancer. I am a diabetic with neuropathy, which has affected the nerves in my feet and in my bladder, among other areas, so I've been incontinent since 2014. Yet, I manage very well despite these disabilities.

I am also a survivor of multi-spectrum childhood abuse from my adopted mother and an adopted sibling. My adopted parents have both long since passed away. I met my bio mom in 2008 when I was 40 years old. I am her only son. We are still very close and talk on the phone frequently - she's in California, and I"m in Massachusetts.

I am a person with Asperger's Syndrome, so I feel emotions very deeply and I tend to be very sensitive around sarcastic people. I can get frustrated easily, and even my online gaming can be a source of aggravation if I don't find the right online environments and communities to be a part of. I am  a member and guild leader of several other gaming communities, as well as in Discord.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Organ Performance/Music, as well as four undergraduate certificates of completion - one in Small Business Management, and the other three are in PC computiing, networking, repair, and Help Desk Support. I achieved a 4.0 average in my last three fields of study. I am considered very intelligent and talented by my professional peers and my personal friends, as my I.Q. is approximately 10-20 points higher than the national average. I have perfect pitch and love to improvise new and original music on a nearly daily basis.

I am a man of deep faith and conviction, though not overtly religious, I believe in a personal Higher Power that loves everyone that He created with eternal love. I identify with the GLBT community, though I am not active in my local "scene," and I remain single and plan to be single for the long-term foreseeable future.

I plan to be very active in COTP, and I would welcome any invitations to serve our community as an officer, or as a Discord admin, in the future, should the need and opportunity arise. Thank you so much for all the warm welcomes. Please feel free to send me a message or a shout out here or in Discord. I love to chat! Take care. Be safe and well.
