My account name I've used across gaming and first was used on a gaming server for Warcraft 2 called The names that I wanted to use were always taken, so I wanted to create a new nickname to use that I would like. The name Booster, a la Mario RPG, was what I decided I would try next. Then that was taken. Just changed the name by one letter and made it Boaster. At the time, I don't know why, but it was a good name and felt right.

It's not that I toot my own horn. It's just a name. Although it's no surprise when I talk a little smack when I beat someone in a game under this name :D

What's your story?

    I'm a playa.

    This is the Baldur's Gate website.

    Hence, bgplaya.

    ...Or maybe its just that I play Baldur's Gate. Can't remember which.

    I made mine up in about 2 minutes.

    And because miniature giant space hamsters can't breath in the vacuum of space, he needed a helmet.

    Adaram is a character name that I created for a novel that is not yet written. I have used this handle since the very beginning and I use it in all games. In fact, I am pretty sure my first ever BG character was an Adaram. :)

    Well, I´m a NWN custom content creator, builder and baba yaga stands for the darker side of the medieval tales. The tales from eastern europe and russia has a special charm of it´s own for me, a much darker undertone which I like and prefer. See the old movies from czech and the woods alone are frightening at times... Also I´m pretty brutal, can be a heated troll and knocks you off your socks silly:D

    My Grandpa used to call me Paulsifer Cagnasty. So, I use Paulsifer for all of my online stuff now, and my hockey number was 42.

    @NWN_babaYaga Baba Yaga is also the name of the villain in Quest for Glory one. I thought that was the origin of your name.

    Obviously, I didn't spend enough time pondering the elegance of a proper user name...
  • CheesebellyCheesebelly Member Posts: 1,727
    @NWN_babaYaga : I must admit I don't really know the subject well. I know we were pagan 1000 years ago, so you're most probably right :)

    More related to the topic, around the internet I also use Lauron as my name, which is an evilfied version of my real life surname :)

    I've always used Artemis but it's usually taken in every online forum/game before I get to it. Artemielle was the closest feminine alternative I could think of and it's never taken :)
