I'm Geoff. My primary area of contribution to IB at the moment is Turkestan, but my interest area includes most of the Central Asian region (particularly the Turko-Mongolian parts). I'm also a conlanger & conworlder.
In addition to my beloved Turkestan and Central Asia, I seem to be becoming Chief Historian of Aviation or something. Militaria is something of an interest, particularly aircraft, and I also maintain an interest in slightly off-the-wall technology. The combination of these can be fairly unusual at times.
Currently residing in Tejas but citizen of the FK, married to Heather (who accepts this conculture stuff I do, but thinks it's a bit mad, really), with two small children: Catherine (5) and Brianna (3).
Other non-IB hobbies/interests include painting (acrylics mostly), languages, history, cartography, military technology and a whole heap of stuff I never have time to get to (see "two small children").
Things I'm caretaker of:
- Assyrian Church
- by extension, the Communion of the Church of the East, though I hold this one very lightly
- the Silk Road League
- Ciudad Las Vacas (I guess...)
Things I've originated or made a big contribution to
- Soğdo script
- InterTurkic language
- A number of flags including:
- Ring Game (and several other Central Asian sports)
- List of Jet Fighters
- Timeline of Aviation History
- Original idea for Defenders of the Earth
- Main Page in InterTurkic
- Main Page in Qazaq
Things I keep a watchful eye on:
(either because they stand a good chance of affecting one of my areas of immanent domain, or out of general interest)
- IB Religion in general, and Christianity in particular
- Manesianity - I'd love to see more work done on this, but I've no idea where to start.
- Ill Bethisad Technology - being a fan of non-standard tech, I like to see its development in IB.
