(in a deep voice, in darkness)
First...there was agers ages...
Next...it was i seek you...
Now, the unveiling of Her Majestys next post concerning getting to know each other...NICKNAMES!!

Just wondering...

where did everyone get their nicknames? obviously, not by opening a book and using the first word you see.
First, I got the name Kavil simply:
There was a REALLY cool book by Mercedes Lackey (To honoured mule:yep, same one), with a Hearld-Mage called Savil. I justed Sitched the K.
Next, i got my name Hatshepsut from my FAVORITE (notice the capitols?) book in the world, Mara, Daughter of the Nile. I could rave on about it, but i won't. The Queen in power at the time is Hatshepsut. At the end, Thutmose took over, but thats another story.
Not too much pizzazz, but oh well! i hope you got yours from something more interesting.I shall quote from the book as my ending.

"Behold, the majesty of the Black Land! Horus of Gold, Enduring of Kingship, Splendid of Diadems, Ruler of Upper and Lower Egypt, Enduring-of-form-is-Ra, Markere Hatshepsut! May the god live forever!"

Postscript: I should start ALL my posts like that
Postpostscript: if you go to the Pharaoh forums, just copy and paste. Thats what i did.

Well, I had to do an enormous amount of research for my nickname. At one point, I almost gave up the search. Finally, I happened to stumble upon my birth certificate and then suddenly, a magical light bulb appeared over my head. And the rest is history ...

Long story here:

First, in gym class one day we were playing football, one of my friends threw me a pass and I dropped it. I was nicknamed "Hyper Hands". I took it online. I started playing as "Hyper_Hands". I joined/started a few clans (Vulcan_Hyper, LoST_Hyper, BUD_Hyper). I dropped out of clans, playing as "laggy_Dan" (no my name isn't dan either). I also had laggy_Bob and i later made "laggy_Hyper"

Soon enough, my friend Wog told me he wanted me to join AoW. I decided to leave the name Hyper behind and use Laggy, or AoW_DeMoN_LaG (AoW being the clan, DeMoN because at the time wog was playing as AoW_DeMoN_WoG and there was AoW_DeMoN_HeLLz and AoW_DeMoN_ChiLd, and LaG because that was my new name)

If we are talking of zone names too, then...
Markymarker: My little cousin couldn't pronouce my name(Margaret), so she said, Marker. my sister calls me "Mark" "Marky" "Marker" and "Markymarker". so thats the main way i got stuck with it

But anyways, when i took myself online, i started using names like Smurf_the_warlord(my old name on the zone, befor some bastard took it from me), Belial_Smurf (when i used to play Diablo on battle.net), yada yada, and now, with Pharaoh out there, i use Pharaoh Smurf.....

It took me a long time to decide on my nickname.....
First, I was thinking of something Greek.
Then, I settled for 'The Phoenix', you know, reborn from the ashes.........

I took my name from Metallica's "Kill Em All" album. There is a Blitzkrieg song tha talks about "Can you survive the Blitzkrieg?" The song has no reference to the Third Reich at all, just lightening fast attacks. Lightening fast attacking is what I tried to do early in my "career" so I thought the name was kinda cool.

There is no hint of German "Blitzkrieg" in my name at all. I have had a lot of people on Zone tell me that is a stupid name and I should never use it, others simply say it is pretty cool.

BTW there is no better way to play RoR than having Metallica playing in the background.

amen.

nothing gets you in a mood to kill like "the four horsemen."
I'm a big metallica fan, although I jumped on the bandwagon rather recently. I usually listen to them (master of puppets and such) just before a game to get the blood pumping to my brain
