Bloodite Interview: Mugwum
Real name : Tom Bramwell
01 What's your gaming nickname and is there any particular reason why you chose it?
Mugwum. I actually had it chosen for me more than anything. I was playing some SNES game (Secret of Mana I think) and I tried to input my name as "Mugwump" (a Terrorvision song, I believe) and the game only took 6 character spaces, so... there ya go :)02 Do you use a custom character config and, if so, how is it setup?
I don't, really, I just make it up as I go along :)03 What weapons do you include in your arsenal?
01 : The Chosen Knife04 Do you prefer bloodbath, standard teamplay or CTF?
CTF. Undoubtedly. CTF brings people together and allows you to be part of a team. It's hard to explain why, except... well... it owns j00!05 What maps are you best on?
Shit. Um, that remake of the first Blood map. I think Shade did it. Probably wrong. Love the map though.06 Which weapon do you think induces the most lag?
Whichever Gibs the most. Not really sure, my weapon of choice is the napalm Launcher, primarily because it is to be pH34r3d!07 What is the funniest kill you've performed or received?
When some guy told me I sucked and as the message popped up on the screen I napalmed him. Then he complained that I sucked for killing him while he was typing. Since when was Blood2 a chatroom, though, hey?08 What's your standard way of carrying out a humiliation death?
Er. Shooting the other guy more than he shoots me :)09 What games do you play online apart from Blood 2?
Um, Half-Life, Quake, Quake2 (the Generations most recently), Q3Test, Shogo and Requiem when Baytor's around.10 What is your all-time favourite weapon from any game?
Er, the Double Barrel Shotgun from Doom2. Definitely. God damn, if only I could play that game on the net...11 What is your all-time favourite map from any game?
First map of Doom2, also DM2 from Quake. Both are shear genius and I really go for them.12 What do you think the future holds for Blood 2?
GODS2. In a word. (and a fine word it is - Infern0)13 What tips do you have to share with your fellow bloodbathers?
Don't kill me as much as I kill you. Or I'll get ya :)14 How can people contact you so they may try and damage your bloodbathing prowess?
Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or ICQ me. #2577150.15 What do you think about PlanetBlood and is there anything else you would like to see on it? (this is also the place where you can plug your sites)
IT SUCKS!16 How exactly did you get tangled up in the web that is PlanetBlood?
I just asked Chris if he wanted any help. And I ended up running the site. Quite amusing really.17 Did you ever expect that working on PlanetBlood would open up stepping stones for other projects (3dActionPlanet)?
Yeah, I always wanted to do something bigger. A pet project if you like. Joost offered me the chance to do that. He's a top guy, you should all send him emails about how cool he is.18 Why the hell have you stuck by Blood II even with all the trouble we've had with it?
Because it's cool. Why have you, Infern0? :) (something to do with that head injury I received before buying Blood2 I imagine - Infern0)
Closing Comment : Ta very much, Tom. I always thought a name like 'Mugwum' was invented because of an accident :)
