Who or what is a Cipranian?

Back when I used to play Star Wars Galaxies, I had used my “Saphrym” name in short form for my first name: Saph. But I needed a last name. It took me a few minutes, but I finally settled on “Cipra.” Since then, I have used variations on that name for many things. I’ve used “Ciprania” as the name of cities. I’ve used “Cipranian” as the name of a ship. Etc.

Most recently, however, even though I continue to use the name for those purposes, a “Cipranian” is an official patron. In other words, they are someone who has donated to me through Patreon or possibly earned the title through many favors, gifts, etc. “Cipranians” are the people I want to give back to because they’ve given so much to me in whatever form they could.

There are 5 ranks of Cipranians:

  • Royal Cipranians – These are my closest friends and supporters. The quickest way to NEVER become a Royal is to ask HOW to become a Royal.
  • VICs – They also know why they are are VICs.
  • Noble Cipranians – If you pledge at the “Noble” level or higher on my Patreon, you get this access which comes with special access on Discord and on Noble only events and servers.
  • Knight Cipranians – If you pledge at the “Knight” level or higher on my Patreon, you get this access which comes with special access on Discord and mention in my videos.
  • Cipranians – Just pledging a $1 (or more) on my Patreon will get you this rank.

As for, “In the [Insert Small Space Here],” Fergcraft knows what he did.

Who are you?
I was born in a small town within a small town. Yep, kind of like putting a sandwich bag in a freezer bag. Bibb City fit snuggly into Columbus, GA. The Chattahoochee River was nearby. Imagine a really deep river with outlets that form small lakes. Now imagine the plug is pulled from the sink. You get Bibb City. It was basically a bowl. But it was a nice bowl. Little green flowers and smiling faces etched all over it.

Fast forward to a few years later, when my parents moved me away from the “promised land” and into the swampland. I lived in a small town called LaPlace, LA. It had some pretentious people living in it. No offense to anyone reading this who was from there. Heck, just the name meant “The Place” as if it was the only place that was worthy of being called “the” place.

Fast forward to meeting my wonderful wife, and a few years later when my daughter was born. The best days of my life started there. Don’t get me wrong, I loved hanging out with the high school friends (even though it was in Louisiana), but the wife and child are quite special to me.

Fast forward yet again to living with my in-laws in/near the big city of New Orleans. Ok. Enough of that.

Fast forward finally to Kentucky. Yet again, and happily so, a small town called Maysville. I’m once again in the “promised land” and am quite happy to spend the rest of my working days here. Sorry, but retirement will require a large block of metal on wheels with a bedroom, bathroom, satellite Internet and television, and yes, even a kitchen sink. But I’m not there yet. So as I raise my beautiful child with my wonderful wife, we will spend our time in Maysville. The scenery is gorgeous. And it’s not flat. Louisiana was flat. And wet. Kind of like a pancake before it’s had time to cook. Maysville is a juicy steak and a side salad.

Oh, and no offense to those living in Louisiana either. Nothing against the people, just the place was so flat. And wet. And hot. And… Well, you get the point.

As for other details about me, I have a B.A. in English, an M.A in Teaching, an M.B.A. and experience with Special Education students. I love video games. I practice magic tricks in my spare time. I design web sites and graphics. I write. I also… [walks off mentioning all the little things he’s done and enjoyed in his lifetime while chewing on a toothpick]

Where did the name 'Saphrym' come from?

My real name is Mike White. Do a Google search for Mike White. I am not found anywhere near the top of the list. Why? Too many Mike Whites. There is no other Saphrym. There is also no other Mike White like me. So I wanted my pen name as original as humans are.

The secret to the name is the use of Scrabble tiles. I pulled out seven of them and rearranged them. I ended up with three different names. Saphrym was one of them. It reminded me of a wise wizard, which is what I was looking for at the time. But I liked it enough to keep it as my pen name.

Who is Quincy?

I’ll let him introduce himself: Introducing Quicy

Now… Do I actually have multiple personality disorder? No. But like everyone else, I have those voices in my head. You know the ones. When someone says something dumb and you curse him out or call him an idiot in your mind, that’s a little voice. So I have decided to give these voices a place to play when I edit my videos. I hope you enjoy them.

What are your computer specs and what kind of gear do you use?

I’ll make this one simple and keep an updated Kit list with all of the gear I use: Current Gear
