Well, I am Seth Logan. As you can tell I like purple... If I can, I play purple in all games or any other odd colors then the usual blue, green, red and yellow/black.

Purple is definitely my favourite color in Conquest of the Empire. Here are some reasons why I like it:

Quote:
The actual color of Tyrian purple, the original color purple from which the name purple is derived, is the color of a dye made from a mollusk that, because of its incredible expense (many times more expensive than gold), in classical antiquity became a symbol of royalty because only the very wealthy could afford it. Therefore, Tyrian purple is also called imperial purple.


Quote:
Alexander the Great (when giving imperial audiences as the emperor of the Macedonian Empire), the emperors of the Seleucid Empire, and the kings of Ptolemaic Egypt wore Tyrian purple. The imperial robes of Roman emperors were Tyrian purple trimmed in metallic gold thread. The badge of office of a Roman Senator was a stripe of Tyrian purple on their white toga.[2]Tyrian purple was continued in use by the emperors of the Eastern Roman Empire until its final collapse in 1453.


Quote:
In medieval Europe, blue dyes were rare and expensive [3], so only the most wealthy or the aristocracy could afford to wear them. (The working class wore mainly green and brown.) Because of this (and also because Tyrian purple had gone out of use in western Europe after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire in AD 476), Europeans' idea of purple shifted towards this more bluish purple known as royal purple because of its similarity to the royal blue worn by the aristocracy. This was the shade of purple worn by kings in medieval Europe.


This was me in the Full!!! Watch them claws, they are wicked baby!!!


now I've grown up and look like this!


I am a warrior and I'm missing an eye, which I have lost in one of my many struggles over the rule of the play ground. Which is now mine to govern as I see fit.

NOTE:

My TOP 10 is a top 10 based on my private collection of games. All games in this list are games I own.

My HOT 10 is a Moving Annual Total of the games I've played most during the year
