Spotlight: 

Colin
Name: Colin Campbell

Email: lujan@clancore.net

Moniker: Lujan

Sex: Male

Country of Residence: U.S.A.

Education: Currently pursuing a B.S. in Physics at Westminster College in Pennsylavia.

How would we know you: In yon olden days I drove a mean dreadlock in the Starsiege servers. I also ran the original Starsiege League, which was a kind of live-action roleplaying game where squads would manage empires and fight battles in the servers.

Currently I'm the "General Project Manager" for Clancore. Jake, Glenn and I make up the administrative group for the team; I'm in the bottom slot of that particular totem pole. My particular duties involve supervising all of the art departments (level design, weapon design, etc.), working with super powio with game balance issues (although since he's joined the team he's done all of the heavy duty work in that area), orienting new staff members, and other general duties that pop up.

Favourite Games: Starsiege is my all time favorite. Other classics that I enjoy are the Quest for Glory and Space Quest series. Recent obsessions include Thief 3, Hitman: Contracts, Unreal Tournament 2004, and Farcry.

Gaming Roles: In Starsiege I was exclusively a dread pilot; I tried to play whatever role most needed filled at the time. If we were being overrun at the front I enjoyed weaving through enemies to slow their advance and distract them from the big gunners on the team. Otherwise I would sweep behind enemy lines or roam the middle of the battle looking for fights to pick or teammates to assist.

The only other games I've played recently that have MP components are FPS. In those I play an overall role with no real specialty, though occasionally I'll play the sniper.

Gaming Rig(s): Intel Pentium IV 3.06 Ghz processor, 2GB DDR RAM, Radeon 9700 Pro.

Gaming Groups / Squads / Clans: Just Clancore.

Favourite Sites: www.starsiege2845.com (obviously), www.penny-arcade.com, www.biggercheese.com, snipehunting.rydia.net, www.dumpythursday.com, www.bash.org.

Favourite Book: Anything by Raymond Feist.

Favourite Movie: I have a lot that are towards the top of my list; there is no clear favorite. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Matrix Trilogy are both excellent, as is Gladiator, Spiderman 1 and 2, The Rock, Con Air, and Face/Off.

Hobbies / Activities / Interests: I'm a physics junky and thoroughly enjoy my college major. I love to read when time is available, and of course videogames. The other major passion in my life is Taekwondo, a martial art I've been training in for about 12 years now.

Accomplishments / Achievements: I'm proud to be a part of Clancore (it's an awesome group of people and a great project). I've had the opportunity to serve as a teacher to many people (both through Taekwondo instruction and academic tutoring), which is incredibly rewarding. I've done well with my Taekwondo training as well; I've won several State Champion titles and have achieved the rank of 4th degree black belt.
