    [​IMG] I think this has been posted before, but I will update it. What is your SP name? Is it a nick name, your character's name or what?

    Me, Rolsuk Fryulee is my halfling rouge's name.

    I too have answered this question before, but I think that thread was deleted when Tal upgraded to the new version of UBB.

    The name Kitrax was my name for my PC the second time I played through SoA. I wanted to name my PC after the black spider figurine, but I couldn't remember what it's name was. So I figured Kitrax was close enough...when I found the fiugurine again, I felt like as idot; but I ended up liking Kitrax better than Kitthix. It has been my name for most everything I do online. :rolling:

    1) I actually wanted the name Taluntain, but that was already taken.

    2) Silverblade is my real name.

    3) I wasn't very original and went with the name Silverblade.

    Pick one.

    "reepnorp" is just some word my friend and I made up. If you must know, it was a very long, very insulting (to us) profanity, or something like that.

    Because I was first Shadow Thief, but then decided Goddess was much better, and now S Goddess because it's a lot shorter than Shadow Goddess.

    Oddly enough I value honor and kindess/goodness above any other traits which is best classified in the paladin class. I have yet to find a religion that puts my beliefs that God is a manifestation of the goodness in men and should be upheld rather than worshipped, or that there is no afterlife, and if there is no afterlife why try to be "good" you ask? well be "good" for yourself and no one else, everything you do affects you more than it affects other people. I am no atheist, I am not anti-Christ, anti-God, anti-religion, or what have you, but I am also not agnostic, meaning that you don't know what you believe. Therefore the paladin becomes irreligious, without religion, a godless, but not faithless champion of good in the face of evil.

    Thanks for letting me rant about that.

    I'm Herf.

    I've been called 'Herf' for more than half my life now... It makes up a substantial part of my second name and it just kinda developed from there...

    It's short. It's sweet. And it's satisfying.

    I love you all.

    I was reeeaaalllly into dragons for a long time, and I thought it sounded kinda elegant...and 13's my lucky number....
    It's better than my two old name's which were Rinoa_13 and Asila, which is my name spelled backwards.

    My name, Atreides, is derived from a really interesting series of books written by Frank Herbert. "Atreides" is the name of a family of nobility (or house as it's called in the novels) and for the most part they value the same vertues I do: honor, goodness, justice, etc. I chose the name because I like one of the characters: Duke Leto Atreides (not his son, can't stand Paul (read the novels if you want to understand.)) I used the name in multy player games (LAN sessions) and decided to use it here. I also use the name on gamefaqs.com and everywhere else I create an online account (I like to remain consistant.)
    In case your curious, my real name is Justin Jones (my friends call me J. J.) but that's such a dull name to use online in these types of environments.

    [​IMG] @Atreides: pressumably you refer on the whole to Dune. The film is pretty good IMHO :) , but my mates think it's useless.

    I kinda stumbled across my name while at work. I was emailing a friend and we started a whole line of roleplay where we were in a dimension similar to this one, where everything could be controlled by Intentions (you know, the same old mind power stuff).
    My rank was Intentioner (equivalent to Initiated), and we were of a race known as "The Damned". Thus, Intentioner of the Damned. The character was working on rising through the ranks and may soon become Lord Intentioner of the Damned.

    Of course, now that name has stuck with everything (BG, IWD etc)

    It's amazing what rubbish you come up with when you're bored. :shake:

    Well, I was skimming through my elvish dictionary when I came across it. Aikanaro means Hellfire.
    Now of course, my name before this one was the amazingly original zaknafein, bet you can't guess where I got that one :p

    [​IMG] Ah, we haven't had a thread like this in a while so there was no chance to move it to the proper forum yet. Well, here's my chance. This should be in SS.

    My name comes straight out of Shakespeare (although apparently there is a beer named after me somewhere across the water).

    Falstaff was a companion of Henry V before he became king. He was a really funny guy - drank too much, talked a lot, ran away a lot - well, that is not really what I am like, but I like his character.

    Morgoth is the name of the uberdarklord who created orcs and brought hate amongst the elves, also from Silmarillion
