Who am I?
You can call me Slax, and I am the owner and writer of this blog.
Being half Spanish and half German, I had the change to grow up playing with the original versions of the Settlers games (even with those unreleased internationally), which made me appreciate them even more, as they enjoy a cult status here.
Going into Academics, I have studied two years of Computer Science in Spain, and am currently studying Technical Writing in Germany (so I expect to revamp most of the blog when I have the time, to make it more readable).
What qualifies me to write this blog?
Apart from a burning passion for the series (mostly Settlers IV and III, the latter to a lesser extent) not much, to be honest. I am just like any other fan of these games, only that I apparently have a physical inability to forget about them, and like to share useful or interesting information with people.
Why should you care?
In all seriousness now, even if I am busy, I really do care about this game and its fanbase. I have had it installed on every computer I have owned for the last 14 years and played it on and off for a little longer. I am by no means great at it, nor do I know how the code works or all its ins and outs… But I will keep working on this blog (again, whenever I have time) for many years to come.
How can you contact me?
I used to have my private email address on this page, but that proved to be both stressful and a bad idea in general. I got also contacted more than once to act as Technical Support, and the let down was huge on both sides.
Instead, you can leave a comment somewhere on this blog (I get emails when that happens, and if I’m not busy I will try to respond!), or send me a PM via GOG.com (I have several posts linked around here, so it shouldn’t be too difficult finding me).
I am also going to put up a Contact Form… I have no idea if this works, and your best bets are still the aforementioned ways, but it’s still worth a try!
