My forum name is what I have been using from the first time I started to use IRC when first server and network kicked up. It was one of demi gods of pantheon of gods from a story and even a game that I used to like. "Lord of Soil" was what he was in that context :)

I have gotten used to it, and my online friends always associate me with it, so if there is someone here who has known me before, they know who I am.

I needed change, so went with my alter-ego from the Chat. A MagicalPen, that can transform into anything, write about anything, etc.

Back around c. 1990, well before internet gaming took off, the first public LAN gaming and entertainment was offered by Virtual World Entertainment, which put out Battletech and Red Planet cockpit simulators. As VWE came out of Chicago my old stomping grounds, I was there at the rise of this new gaming platform. I was a Battletech fan for some time before that, and in BT lore the Overlord-class dropship is a massive combat vessel, designed to inflict planetary scale mech warfare. Too cool to not name something after it, and I've been using it for the past 18 years.

Operation Overlord- Also known as Normandy, the greatest coastal invasion in history as the Allies smashed into the Third Reich's Atlantic Wall.

Viking overlords sent their marauders into battle in those days; a tribute to the Scandinavian blood in my veins.

Mine is from a Simon and Garfunkel song.....

Celia, youre breaking my heart
Youre shaking my confidence daily
Oh, cecilia, Im down on my knees
Im begging you please to come home

Celia, youre breaking my heart
Youre shaking my confidence daily
Oh, cecilia, Im down on my knees
Im begging you please to come home
Come on home

Making love in the afternoon with cecilia
Up in my bedroom (making love)
I got up to wash my face
When I come back to bed
Someones taken my place

I love that song, but for a long time, I thought it was called "celia" and the guy was just stuttering.

I know what you mean...he does say "Celia" a lot in the song, but the proper title is "Cecilia".  I had to look it up, too.

I use Caity because I just think that Kate or any variation thereof is the sexiest female name ever. 
Not sure why.... just one of those things you pick up along the way.


I do really like my real name though.  :)

Mine is far too simple really, not too long ago I decided I needed a new nickname for the interwebs. At the time I was just on a game, about to join a new server and I just thought: "I'm just some random bloke to them." and there you go. RandomBloke.

Lilias is one of the characters I created for Yahoo roleplays a couple of years ago. I'm not telling you what kind of character she was, because I don't want to be identified just with her. It's a quirky name, unlikely to be already taken by someone else, and I admit it gets me some attention to start with.

Inkidu (inky-doo) I chose it because it's not widely used, so it won't have any random numbers after it.
Plus I like epic poetry. Real poetry not that free-verse junk. (It's too much like modern art XP)

Inkidu (Also spelled like I had it earlier, inkedu. This is just more phonetically correct.) was the sidekick to Gilgamesh in the Sumerian epic poem. Ready for it? The Epic of Gilgamesh

Ja, only the last time I saw it spelled out, 'twas Enkidou. Threw me a bit; thought there was more to the story.

I'm pretty sure I was in 6th-grade Spanish class when I came up with this one.

But I still like it.

Online Zaer Darkwail

Re: Whats in a Name??? Everything when one is online.
« Reply #69 on: September 02, 2008, 04:36:00 AM »
PLainly said Zaer Darkwail was the name of the characther in 'Elven maids vs Barbarians' game in Rpol so when game transfered here I decided use it so the small elliquiy recognized who I was. But reason why such name for characther?

Zaer sounded something evil, mean and cool. Darkwail then something emotional and dark. All suited for my dom warlock who liked use black energy tentacles wrap up elf maids and ravage them and tame to be his slaves.

But my usual online names at moment are Kazzaroth or Kazeira. Kazzaroth comes from bending 'Sephiroth' name with my FF7 game char (wanted similar name like Sephiroth but not same, then my mind came special limit break 2 category called Climhazzard or something and decided 'Kazza' sounded cool name and just added 'roth' after it). Kazeira borned from sort version of first name; Kaz. But I wanted it to be five letter word so I added 'eira' to add more words to it and 'eira' sounds more lighter and aerial than 'kazza' which sounds heavy to me.

I usually stick to using my middle name (Angel) but "Aiden" is a character I created on a different Rp Forum. I liked it so much I started using the SN Aiden, I actually prefer to be called Aiden over Angel by my friends and family.
(I do not let them use my first name, since it is confusing, my dad has the same name and when we are both around things get confusing)

I just picked something familer, king_furby was my name in a guild i was part of in a FPS that i no longer play. But i honestly didn't think i would like this place so i just picked something i could remember. But i am glad i ended up likeing it here. My name is established here so i don't want to change it.

I have a silly name and i don't like to act to serious. But i do take my RPing as a serious hobby. Too bad all my games are just crawling.

I chose my screen name as a play on words. Seeking, and my initial and my last name together. C. King. I don't know why, but I like how it works out.

And I didn't want to go like a normally do and just go with King. It just seemed like I might come off as arrogant or cocky or something here. Didn't want that to happen.

Oooooh.

I always thought you were referring to that old Pokemon franchise. It had a creature called "seaking".

Seeing as that's not the case, I apologize for all those times I said "fuck yeah, ceeking!"

Caehlim is an anagram of Michael, my name. It's an old one that I used to use on IRC chat and when I found elliquiy, out of the many psuedonyms I use it just lept into my head. It's more personal for me than a descriptor of words and I can connect to it more strongly.
