Hello, my handle is RyokoMocha. That name is taken from Ryoko Hakubi, a character from the anime series Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki! Ryoko is a beautiful, blue-haired space pirate, an artificial genetic construct created by fusing the genes of a creature called masu and the ova of her "mother" Washu Hakubi, the self-proclaimed "greatest scientific genius of the universe" (as well as a secret goddess.) Ryoko is my favorite characer of the series. I am not generally an avid fan of most anime, but I do love some of the exceptionally good ones ("Good Ones" being the examples I like, whch not everyone may agree with; for example, I consider both Cowboy Bebop AND DragonBall Z to be great!) :)

If you haven't seen Tenchi Muyo yet, do so immediately! You won't regret it.

My real name is Aaron M. Litz, and I am from Pennsylvania. I ws born in 1976, and I am 37 years old as of 2013. I go by several different handles on different Internet forums, including Aaron L on ENWorld, and Izar Talon (an anagram of my first and last names) on the Paizo message boards (as well as a few others.) I also go by RyokoMocha on quite a few other forums as well, including the official BattleTech forums.

I am a huge fan of the Pathfinder role-playing game, as well as several of the editions of Dungeons & Dragons which preceded it (1st Edition and 3rd Edition, but I am notably NOT a fan of 2nd or 4th Editions.) I consider Pathfinder to be the true successor to the legacy of Dungeons & Dragons.

In addition to RPGs, I also enjoy reading (especially the genres of Fantasy, Science-Fiction, and Horror), writing, drawing, and psychology and philosophy. I also greatly enjoy music, especially the styles of Punk Rock and Ska, and most especially the combined form of Ska-Punk (otherwise known as Third Wave Ska.) My favorite currently active bands are Bad Religion and Reel Big Fish, but my favorite bands of all time are The Beatles and Nirvana. My favorite author is H.P.Lovecraft (who's works expertly combine aspects of my favorite genres of Horror, Science-Fiction, and Fantasy), and my favorite movie is Ghostbusters (which, like Lovecraft, flawlessly combines elements of my favorite genres of Horror, Science-Fiction, and Fantasy, inside the framework of a Comedy.

I am also a very big fan of Pathfinder's core world of Golarion. I consider Golarion to be a pulp setting in the best traditions of 30s pulp magazines, using the best elements of the authors of those stories.

I am especially a fan of the official inclusion of Lovecraft's "Cthulhu Mythos" in the universe of Golarion. Paizo's decision to fully commit themselves and directly incorporate Nyarlathotep, Azathoth, Yog-Sothoth, and Cthulhu, and especially their decision to maintain these beings full levels of universe-shaking, god-dwarfing power, (and all of it's implications) rather than merely create a watered-down, half-hearted fascimile of Lovecraftian-style cosmic horror (as most other companies would do) greatly impressed me, and was the foundation for my love of the setting. The continued excellence of writing of Paizo's stable of creative talent cemented my devotion.

I have suffered from clinical depression and generalized social anxiety disorder my entire life, as well as Attention Deficit Disorder and Tourette Syndrome, and Degenerative Disk Disease.
