Keep in mind that there are plenty of real life friends that would betray the hell out of you in a game even if just for the lolz.
Plenty of games are based on that. (Poker, Diplomacy, hide & seek are the first 3 that spring to mind.)
I come from a single place and usually have the same background.
Currently busy building and installing my (largely) new PC. When done I hope to jump into the next pre alpha (although he real world is keeping me very busy).
