Front and back views of Gerbster's skin.
Gerbster is a long standing and prolific builder, elevated to Mod status when it became clear that the server needed more Mods to help players, particularly during evenings and nights in the UK.

He favours small buildings and projects, preferring to create large areas as a result of lots of individual works. His favourite parts of the game are building interiors and finding new combinations and uses of blocks. He is reasonably competant at redstone circuits. Apart from a few rare examples, Gerbster builds exclusively in a Medievil style, in keeping with most of the server.

Gerbster played Minecraft briefly in single player before joining the TCE (The Chaos Engine) server at the suggestion of robert_swan who is his real-life twin. As that server slowly emptied, he had a brief stint on a different free build server, before moving to the uRPS server, again at the suggestion of robert_swan. Many of the initial buildings in Mammalia were copies of work done on the TCE server.

His skin is a simple modified version of the default, with the main differences being a Colombian flag on the back of the t-shirt, and an Incan cross medallion, reflecting the country he lives in, and a digital version of a small medallion that he bought while visiting Machu Picchu in Peru, which he wears almost constantly.
