Return to spotlights listing.

Name: James Wayne Duncan II


Moniker: Aldaron

Sex: Male

Country of Residence: United States

Education: Current sophomore at Whiteland Community High school in Whiteland, Indiana.

How would we know you: In Starsiege I am a scripter, a mapper, and a frequent player. Some of you may know me from forums or websites that I frequent.

Favourite Games: My computer can't handle much so I'm deprived of games such as Unreal Tournament 2004 at the moment. My favorites that I can play regularly include Starsiege, Starsiege: Tribes (mainly Annihilation Mod), F-22 Lightning 3, the Deer Hunter series, Uprising, and Warcraft III (both Reign of Chaos and Frozen Throne.) Oh yeah, who can forget the classics? I play Super Mario World several times a week and Super Mario Kart once a week or so and have done so for a little over 12 years.

Gaming Roles: Like many others, it depends on what game I'm playing. Generally I like to provide sniper and cover support or defense.

Favourite Book: This is difficult. I've spent the past couple years reading all of Tolkien's books with complete interest and am qualified to actually be considered a Tolkienologist, but my favorite books are by John Grisham, mainly A Time to Kill and The Firm. The Partner is not that bad either. I think anyone who reads them will like them.

Favourite Movie: Another favorite? The Lord of the Rings is a masterpiece that I studied the books along with, but my favorite goes not to it but to A League of Their Own. It's a true story starring Tom Hanks showing the first season of girls playing professional baseball during World War II while the men were away and the hardships a team and specifically two sisters go through on their way to the top of the league and out into life. Ironically, it's setting is in my home state of Indiana.

Hobbies / Activities / Interests: Computers is already a given. I love to go camping and fishing when I can. It's a family tradition to become an Eagle Scout so I've had fun participating in the Boy Scouts for the last eight years. Other than that I like to play games, play or tinker with programs and games, listen to relaxing music, sit or lay down, and be lazy and/or relax. Pretty simple, yet enjoyful, life.

Accomplishments / Achievements: Online I help everyone when I can and know how to so it's an accomplishment to me to know that I was there to help someone. In Wetsun's Starsiege gametype Command And Destroy I hold the current known record of the largest amount of K-SATs fire with 27 K-SATs. Other than that I help administrate or moderate several websites and message boards including Sun and Shadows and the Clancore Forums. Offline I still help everyone who asks for assistance. I'm scraping through high school life being months away from becoming an Eagle Scout on the side.

Blurb: I started out with video games consoles when I was a little over a year old. I've played them since. I started playing computer games back in 1998 and first got online in 1999 to play the Wal-Mart FLW Professional Bass Tournament via multiplayer. In that time I've been a member of a few gaming communities but none has really brought it home like the Starsiege community. If it wasn't for them I wouldn't have found that I have an interest and knack in computer science. I will likely develop my interest into a career and for that I thank the entire Starsiege community. Thanks also goes to Mhaddy for giving me this opportunity to be in the Spotlight. It was a completely unexpected offer and I was schocked when I read the subject title.

"Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes." - Jim Carrey

Being a single man looking for the right person of the opposite sex to care for I fully believe in that quote from Bruce Almighty, another good movie I recommend everyone to see if you already haven't.
