Feast time with Chiba!


Chiba began his Amt-career some time in the mid 90's as a silly little flurb by the name of Reece Truesight, a Scottish wizard. He thanks Bresil to this day for introducing him to the game. He was happy to just chuck fireballs and gank unwitting victims in various parks in central Texas until the Celestial Kingdom fractured into northern and southern principalities. His then-current park, Talon Field, was given the option of joining either, as they wished. He campaigned heavily to choose neither, and instead act as a pivot point between the two, both in politics and role play. His proposal was ultimately defeated, but it whet his appetite for politics. Life got in the way, and he faded from the game...until he moved to Ohio...

Where he found chaos. Putting the wizard aside, and taking up a more aggressive persona (as well as an authentic Japanese long bow), a samurai, Chiba decided he would devote his efforts to bringing peace to a fractured land. His battles have not always been won, but above all things he holds pride in the friendship and unity now found between the various groups in Ohio. They stand united, where before there was only strife. His job done there, and the Midwest no longer being a safe place for a queer anarchist, he ran off to Seattle...
