Kirthag is a role playing persona created in 1980 during an adventure in the 8th grade D&D club of the Player's school (the player was then 12 years old). Over the years, Kirthag has grown in ways not really anticipated. Through the  years, Kirthag's Player has utilized the RP-persona as a means of dealing with extraordinary circumstances from personal tragedies to world altering events. To date, Kirthag's Player firmly believes that all RP-characters created by long-term role players are aspects of the Player's Psyche. Someday she will write a thesis on this.

Community Activities

Kirthag's Player gets involved where she feels she can do the most good. Be it on her own websites, or various community sites dedicated to her most favored world, Sosaria.

Stratics

In 1998, Kirthag read over Den Dragon's web pages for guidance on character building. As the website developed, so did Kirthag's involvement. Her first official Stratics role was as a News Reporter for the Napa Valley Shard in 2000. Her activity died down, so she resigned in 2003.

Returning to more activity in UO, Kirthag's interest in community involvement blossomed. Revisiting Stratics, she noticed drastic changes - for the site had become a "hub of gaming information" as a MMO-News site. This piqued Kirthag's Player (who has been involved in printing, publishing and marketing since the 1990s). She applied for the Vice President of Publishing position in 2013 - and was accepted.

For the sake of the community, involvement with Stratics shall not be explained in more depth here. Suffice to say, Kirthag resigned as a leader of Stratics in 2015 under friendly circumstances.
