March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

There is a certain kind of individual who can seize life by its reins and like a twisted matador hold fast and endure; the kind of man who exists in a profound dedication and kind pragmatism that has a substantial effect on the world and people around him. Alas, I play video games, and won't be seeing him around.

I began my gaming career ("career" because I take it seriously, dammit) with the original Prince of Persia at the ripe age of six, a gateway game that soon escalated into my first SNES and a copy of Super Mario World. I enjoyed Mario and even got a hold of Secret of Mana, a game I love thoroughly to this day. A Playstation and Final Fantasy VII followed a few years later, introducing me to the RPG and the inevitable spiral of grandiose storylines, sleepless game nights, and a pathetic lack of women that would govern the larger aspects of my life.

When I'm not playing or crying myself to a lonely, bitter sleep, I enjoy writing fiction and poetry. I live for my music, whether it be a game soundtrack or a Wagner opera, and can be found listening wherever I am. My dress is meticulous and my favorite game to date is Genso Suikoden II.

I have been working at the Haven since the fall of 2004 and am very proud of the site content, atmosphere, and community (a zealousness that is so integral to my character). I am very easily reachable on AIM (darthvena) and do enjoy a compelling discussion from time to time.
