About Me:

I’m Ethan Macfie, better known as Isarii around these parts of the internet. Although I got my start here on Tamriel Foundry, I’ve expanded to writing about more than just TESO, and have collaborated with other fan sites and branched off to my own blog, The Errant Penman. As of this writing I’m engaged as a freelance journalist with MMOGames, where I have the pleasure of sharing my thoughts on the MMO genre at large with the site’s community.

I’m a recovering hardcore gamer who at this point is mostly looking to have fun without taking anything too seriously. I’ve been on the MMO scene for quite awhile, but only picked up The Elder Scrolls games at Oblivion with all the other late-comers.

Offline I live in Portlandia, have a corgi named Doomhowl, cheer with the Timbers Army as an MLS fan, and have a strange weakness for Guinness that transcends my usual snobbishness about macrobrews.
