Personal

Hi! I'm Antrax, or as I'm sometimes known, Doron. I was born in 1980, so at the time of writing this I'm a little under 28 years old. I currently live in Haifa, Israel. It's not a bad city, but the night life don't compare to those of Tel Aviv, which is almost Manhattanian in nature. So, I usually spend the weekends there, especially because that's where my girlfriend lives.

I recently graduated from The Technion, which is as close as we Israelies get to an MIT. My degree was in computer science, and I put a heavy focus on the more theoretical aspects of it, especially Computational Complexity and Cryptography. I have no intention of doing a Master's soon - that would force me to quit my job as a Software Engineer in Intel, and I love it too much.

I like games in general, though I don't get to play as often as I'd like. I am a decent chess player, though I rarely play since graduating and quitting the school's chess team. I am also a profitable Texas Hold'Em player, and it helped me to pay for my second year of university. Also, I have been a Magic: the Gathering certified level 3 judge since mid-2005, though I rarely judge outside of Israel.

Mafia

I used to play Mafia a lot on the Grey Labyrinth - my first game was Mafia 12 there. Apparently mith backed the game up - it's five pages. Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 4, Page 5. As you can see, I was bandwagonning like crazy, and only survived being found out thanks to Courk misinterpreting her information :) Nevertheless, it was a lot of fun, and I was hooked and began playing every game I could get into.

I joined mafiascum around the time mith opened it, and played in many games there, most of which were probably lost in one crash or another, which is part of the reason why I'm not doing a "games I've played" list. The other, of course, is laziness.

I quit mafiascum and mafia in general early in 2004, and have been playing rarely since - usually after being approached by the moderator of the game for the nostalgia value. This is why I'm currently playing in Minvitational 9. I also enjoyed moderating. Mixed Theme Mafia is a game I'm proud of - it was very difficult to design, and I think in the end everyone had a good time. I am, in fact, having thoughts about moderating Mixed Theme 2 some day - I even have a couple of role ideas.

Back when I played regularly I was very interested in trying to understand the theoretical aspects of the game. I even wrote a guide - How to Be a Good Townie.

I think that's enough for a first draft of my wiki page. Please change the personal information section, but I will welcome corrections and additions to the rest of the page.
