POLL DESCRIPTION

Angel Barracks Inactive Member wonders...

I have learned about painting.

Webdesign.

Modelling techniques including scratchbuilding.

History around the periods I play.

Some legal stuff around DSR.

Most gaming companies (mine included) are one-man bands run around normal day jobs.

That even a hobby full of historians, artists and geeks has its fair share of rude idiots.

Probably some other stuff too that escapes me right now.

What about you?
