You can find my MSN at MarkHoffman555@hotmail.com.
I have extensive(1.75 Years) of Teamspeak experience, curtesy of the 75th Ranger Regiment of America's Army.
Am fairly profficient in the Map maker of NTW, and am currently working on Antietam. (I would have preffered Gettysburg, but it was taken... )
I'll be online most of the time, when I'm not working or sleeping.
When I am online you can either find me in Guildwars, N:TW, R:TW, or reading American Military History. I have a strong interest in realism, and always build my Multiplayer Regiments after a realistic model. However, I always wonder how a Battalion of Greenjackets, Highlanders, and Coldstream wind up in the same Regiment with Scottish Greys and Royal Horse Guards. But alas, I am but a Regimental Commander.
Now... where be me 14 chillings? I have a gambling house to get to, and these London streets are crowded today!
I am known as something of a philosopher. Some ask me, 'Why are we here?' The answer is often complicated... but today we are here to kill all those bastards.

S! all, i would like to introduce myself, i'm barrett, and i would like to join the guard grenadiers. Some of you do now me for some fun games we've played together these weeks.
My real name is juan pablo, i'm from northern spain (that explains this strange english you're reading), from the beautiful Galicia. I'm 26 years old, economist, and kinda web developer. I also learn fast and have some good habilities for flirting with pretty little ladies. I also fight battles; and have a stupid sense of humor i usually don't use for my best.
I still have got no favorite faction, but brittish are my normal choice.
I would like to join you beacause all of GG i have the pleasure to know are serious, honorable and were very kind to me - specially LordAshram, the one who generously helped me in my first day as a multiplayer - and those characteristics are the most valuable for me.
Think it's nearly all. Hope i will be a good GG some day, i'll try my best.

I think it would be wonderful to have Barrett in the GG. Those of you who haven't had a chance, should play some games with Barrett. He's good! And a gentleman. I feel confident he would make a great GG.

Welcome Barret, I had the pleasure of visiting your fair city back in May spent 5 days there, a time that will always stay with me one I hope to return.
Had the honour of taking the field with you last Sunday and we very very nearly pulled off a classic victory over those barbarian hoards who call themselves GG's
psst... Brits are ok...so are French and Pruss...but for pure class, well its gotta be the Austrians they just have style... a bit harder to play.. but all the more fun.
Welcome to the ELite S!
Barbarian? That's me.
Oh, it looks like Barrett has some support in the GG! Lucky dog.
But, all joking aside, I'd REALLY like it if Barrett was apart of the team! An excellent player, and an excellent guy! That, and he knows fine Spanish women. We can only win in this situation, fellows, we can only win. ;D

Hello there GG. It is an Honor to visit your castle, I do hope Im welcomed here.
As some of you may know, I've visited the lordz forums, which is really impressive...and awsome job you and the rest of the NTW have build up.
The reason of my appearence tonight, I am interested in joining the GG. I am more than sure that your clan emphasis will be more than I have expected. Nor there is also to say, within the NTW community, the GG have mada a name..and are focused in matainning an strong base for the community, and the game itself.
My name is Dave. My online name is Dave of Al-Andalus. And i would thank, if any of the modd would kindly fix that issue of my name..and place my full name. Im from Spain, Im 18. The reason of following the path of NTW, is a long monotone pressure build up by MTW/VI. Dont take me wrong, I like MTW/VI, but the same routine has wore my energy off. NTW is new..and its community its a new breed.
I am ready to take the next step of my TW gaming ability, and would appreciate to learn more of NTW, and what better place to, than the Grenedier Guards.
Once again, an Honor..and will patiently await for a reply. take care. Att: Dave of Al-Andalus.
"Oh Madre Patria, Oh Salve La Tierra que me vio Nacer...Te Sangrare.! Y Defendere.! Hasta que no tenga mas aliento en Mi ser..!"

Nice to see you made it over here!
As you said, GG is, we think, the premier NTW clan. It is among the oldest, dating back a few years, and boasts a nice mix of older guys who have been around since the "early days" as well as a group of young bucks. We count two of the most active Lordz among our numbers, who were also the driving forces behind the ATW mod and NTW v6, as well as a number of players who have played NTW since its earliest days.
We have a number of "older" players (30s-50s) as well as a wide array of younger guys (late teens and early 20s.) The first step in discussing membership is basically playing some of the guys and getting to know them. As you get to know us we can discuss possibly accepting you as a probate (a [gg]) and then taking a serious look at you as a potential member.
Do add the guys to your msn list, and feel free to post a bit here, tell us what you have learned... if we can help you overcome even a bit of the learning curve, so much the better!
And btw, you should try to say hi to Barrett, who is another Spanish member of our regiment!

The best way to get our attention, Dave, is to join in a few games with us. The best way to do this is to get MSN Messenger. Once you have this, set up an MSN screen-name, and add;
Scottish76thOfFoot@hotmail.com This is me firstname.lastname@example.org Lord Ashram; our interim 'honcho' when the big Boss, IrishBrigadier, is away doing his own thing.
Your best bet is to get a few games in with fellow GG, both against, and with us. I first offered my service to the GG when I was new to NTW, just like you. Thank you for showing interest in the Grenadier Guards, and I hope to see you on the battlefield shortly!
