Hi,
Some of you must wonder how do people get their nick/playnames... Well i'm one of them Wink, so i start by explaining my playname that i use in every game for more then 5 years now.
I got 2 different playnames (according to games):
- Erythrocla (mmo)
- Mister K (fps, race)

Erythrocla comes from 'Erythrocladum' (latin: Acer pensylvanicum) and this is an old tree that was used in the early days from druids to make potions/salves (thats why i prefer druids).
Mister K comes from a nickname given by some colleague's (in english it would be Mister Q, quality = kwaliteit in dutch)

So don't be shy and shoot Wink

Nice topic.

Veralin - Comes from Pink Floyd song of the Wall, there's a song were they sing: "Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn", i have that part of the song always on my mind. They refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vera_Lynn
Alixis - Erhm. Just popped into my head
Raggedy - Refers to the raggedy man of the evil dude in The Stand by Stephen King
Nekyia - It's necromancer in greek

I won't bother with alts and mules, but i try to make up nice names for all of them. One of my tactics is to grab a letter from the newspaper and make that the starting letter of the name like i did with Hakar, Bokta and Kaelic.

Explanation of my playname.

Well...i normally use Jiojiosan as a playname. Jiojiosan is a character from my favorite opera (Madam Butterfly - Puccini).
I started RoM also as Jiojiosan, i played as a knight/warrior.....and that dit not work out so well.
I was quite noobish back then (even more so then now )--so i made a new character and had to come up with a new name...i was listening to a cd - Mozart Requiem - Exsultate, Jubilate - and hence i thought....Jubilate is a nice name!
Hence Jubilate was born.

And this also explains why my alt is named Jiojiosana (since Jiojiosan was taken). Very Happy Rolling Eyes

Greetings from your Queen Jubilate.... cheers

Jubilate noobish? Don't be so hard on yourself or negative. In the runs you play strong and in SW you know what you have to do. I think there are a lot more ppl who are more noobish then you, Jojo Wink
