    X-Clamp anime, the anime is a bit homo but i liked it anyway, derivated from Kamui.

    I used Kamuizin in a lot of places, too, as Warcraft (dota and other custom games mostly), ragnarok, perfect world, garena client and a lot of other places too, so even when kamui is avaliable i stick with kamuizin.

    @LadyRhian now I almost feel the need to change my name (although I don't use it in D&D settings) as I'd never tolerate fiends in my castle!

    DK is my initials for my name. I figured Death Knight sounded cooler as I didnt favor Donkey Kong.

    @Dragonspear Part of the module is helping banish them and closing the Gate to Hell/Baator in the basement. Gives new meaning to "This basement looks like Hell!"

    I created this name when i made my first character for a Lord of The Rings campaign quite some time ago.

    In quenyan or another language, i can't exactly remember now, my name has the following meaning.

    Morn is something black, dark, moody or sorrowfull.

    Magor is the sword, it also means swordsman in another dialect.

    My character's first name was Yulor Mornmagor, and Yulor means Bearer.

    The name in full was supposed to mean something like "Bearer of the Black sword", although MornMagor by itself means the black swordsman or the dark swordsman. A man of sorrows that mastered the blade, or something.

    I was influenced a lot by Berserk.

    My name is from David Edding's Belgariad, plus my initials on the end. Belgarath the Sorcerer is the mentor, wise old man, Obi-Wan type character from the epic.

    @Mornmagor, I can't resist pointing out that "Morn" is also the name of the alien sitting at Quark's bar on Deep Space Nine, who never spoke throughout the series. They got the name by switching the first and last letters in "Norm" from Cheers.

    Yeslick Orothiar, one of the most underrated NPC's of the BG series...
    And the only good-natured dwarf too, which is a must in a D&D adventure IMO.

    lol, now that you mention it, he did kinda resemble norm. And i loved the running joke that the char that never spoke was always mentioned as never shutting up. :)

    Mine is the name of the first character I created for a BG1 game way back when. I figured why not use it when I posted a question on the original PBG forums. Just stuck with it ever since.

    I came up with it when I was 12, because I loved That 70's Show. Pretty basic and nothing to do with gaming, it's just the fastest thing I can type which makes logging into accounts really easy.

    This nick harkens back to my Starcraft days, when I had 3 tags I used to use that were themed to each race:

    - Hive Fleet Spitwad (zerg)

    - Praetor Caligula (protoss)

    - Colonel Burger (Terrans)


    Colonel Burger was the only one that stuck, and it's carried forward, oh yeah!

    For the record, I always call my BG toons Mortaron (a play on Montaron, and the latin word for death).

    Well, when I first began posting on forums it was for a forum game that was based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms. I was quite young, and I favored one of the characters that was a famous tactical strategist "Zhou Yu." When trying to think up a name, one of my friends just suggested putting an "i" on the end and I was like whatever, alright. Then my character in-game was Zhou Yui. I just kept the name across different platforms, and eventually those who knew my name as Chris started calling me Chris Yui.

    Normally, I would use my normal title "Izaran" but since I have used the name "Maran Delsavi" in the first game I actually beat BGI, and BGII with, the grand Archmage Maran is my name of choice. :D In 3.5 games, he is (in the longest game I played) a peerless Moon Elf Archmage. So the name sticks.

    I was seeing all this stuff about a bearer of a black sword and felt you may have been influenced by Elric of Melnibone

    While studying genetics, I came across the term Tetraploid, referrring to something having four sets of chromosomes instead of pairs (as seen in most animals). I liked the world and I has stuck with me as an alias for over five years now!

    My surname is Beer.
  • colonel_burgercolonel_burger Member Posts: 279
    @beerish If I was gay and we lived in a state that allowed gay marriage, I'd marry you just to get that surname.
