Hey guys! I'm Jesterful. It's nice to meet you all.

I'm 19 and was introduced to TF2 around the time the Orange Box first released. I was 9 at the time and loved the hell out of playing on Xbox Live when I was spending the Summer at my cousin's home. I wasnt able to really get into TF2 until a few years later though.

I've been playing TF2 for about 6-ish years now and I've always loved the game. During those 6 years TF2 and I had an off and on relationship, where I recently picked it up again. I missed the community and the fun the game provided for me.

While I wasnt playing TF2, I was focused mainly on my performing arts, stuff like band, marching band, choir, and musical theater eventually. But after graduating from High School I lost those creative outlets.

After watching Crash's tutorials over the past few days I think mapping might be that creative outlet I've been hoping to find.

I'm a little overwhelmed with hammer and the whole process behind it all right now, but I think I'll be able to figure stuff out eventually.

Thanks for reading, I'm looking forward to learning and participating with the community as much as I can.


I really suck!

Don't worry, Hammer is really easy to pick up. If you have a creative passion for architecture, and building, Hammer can be an extremely powerful tool!
