I'm in the same boat as you, dude(Minus the big chest). The best advice I can give is to read up on all of the threads you can in this section,seeing as how they can virtually answer any question you have(hooray for other people). And even give Crossplay.net a look at if you feel the need to. That being said, best of luck to you. I'm sure you'll do an excellent job.
