'Origin' of Your User Name

Lets see, my screen name is a play on words. Some get it, some don't. Basically i signed up at four in the morning after a long session of gaming and drinking, my friend and i had been joking about word play names like that. All those factored together are the reason i use this name. I also use it pretty much everywhere i post, cuase i'm lazy and do want to remember extra login names.

Mine was inspired by DiscoStu from the Simpsons. Only while I do in fact like disco, trance is my favorite type of music.

I used to always use "Troy McClure", until Phil Hartman got killed

see agbak, clay varies, and while you seem to think you have enuf information to criticize what i have written you might have revealed, with a modicum of research, that while these variances can carreen all around the geochemical map (Kaolinite (Al2Si2O5(OH)4) to Montmorillonite (Na0.33Al1.67Mg0.33Si4O10OH2H2O) )

Hey, I didn't even get started on clay. I just told you that Al and Si are aluminium and silicon, not alumina and silica.

origen

We had a "Fessic" 1/2 Ogre character in a game but we've never had a "Buttercup" It's good to see the name getting some use though. Gamers are the bigest plagerists there are when it comes to us using names and places:rolleyes: keep up the good work!;)
 

Neo

Mines pretty simple

NEO means New, also the lead character from the Matrix (though that isn't why I picked it)

My company name is also Neo Innovations, which basically means New Ideas...

I chose Neo because to me it says fresh, inspired, original and I try to embody those three traits in all my creations...

Oh and there is of course the whole Radiocative spider incident but thats another story LOL

The scary thing is that I actually used clay in some undergraduate chemistry research. I always thought clay was clay. Oh heck no. There's like a bazillion variations.

BTW, my nickname comes from two sources, both related.

Klaatu B(arada) Nikto was my favorite Dragonlance character, a kender. His name came from my favorite movie, Army of Darkness, as the magical words to be spoken before removing the Necronomicon. Ok, MIS-spoken.

My nick's origin was based on an evil NPC I had that was powered by entropy and destruction . He was a major force in different campaigns and different genres. :D

IIRC, its use in Army of Darkness was an homage to the classic The Day the Earth Stood Still.

Darrin Drader

First Post
When I left Dark Portal Games, I wanted to remain an active part of these boards, but didn't feel that it would be appropriate to still call myself DPG Darrin for obvious reasons. Rather than going with something unimaginitive (like my name), I went with the name of the large castle I designed for my article "Every Home a Castle" in Dragon 295.

Yup, directed by the great Robert Wise. Klaatu was the name of the human-looking alien. The line was what needed to be said to the robot, Gort, in order to prevent him from destroying the Earth.
 

DonAdam

It's my high school nickname. My real name is Adam, and one day at a debate tournament I drew charicatures (sp?) of everybody on the team.

I don't draw well, mind you, but it was just to poke fun at everybody (everybody took it well, tarry not). I drew myself as "Don Adam Martin, Mafia Crime Lord and the Sexiest Man Alive."

Suffice to say, it stuck. I was henceforth either known as "Don" or "The Don" to everybody. The teacher (Mr. Dennis, aka Poppa D) and a few others used "The Don" so profusely that they even used it in the vocative, as in "Hey, The Don, come check this out."

The nick name quickly exploded into a full fledged mythology about the Don's family. I, the quintessential nerd and anti-socialite, managed to become the center of social existence among the debaters from several schools, simply by arbitrating who was in the family and who were The Don's People (I always take care of my people).

I've known people for months without them knowing that my real name was Adam and not Don, since so many people called me that, and I still answer to "Don" instinctively.
 

At the time when I signed up here (well actually Eric still ran the place back then...), Trevalon was my character in my pal Ed (Fayredeth)'s game. His companions managed to burn down half of an entire city. His companions started griping when I had to turn them in. "Chaotic Good?! You're not chaotic good, you're chaotic bogus!!"
 

Eosin the Red

First Post
In micro we were working with stains ~ I really dig bugs ~ one of them was called Eosin. Eosins stain cells red. A few weeks later I was planning an adventure and needed to introduce a character that would later become known as the bloodiest king in the history of the empire. He would earn the tag line "the Red." Seemed like a funny joke to name someone Red the Red so I ran with it.

Later, I started poking around the internet and decided after many tries that all of the cool names were taken. Eosin the Red is never taken.

I felt sorry for the d12. It totally got the shaft in third edition. You don't need it unless you carry a battleaxe or are playing a barbarian.

And it spins REALLY well.
 

Knight Otu

First Post
I use two user IDs.

This one is my primary one. Originally I wanted to be Knight of the union, but I figured it would be a bit too long in the long run, so I shortened it and came to like it better.

When we had to re-register for this incarnation of the boards, I had some trouble getting the confirmation mail, and the mail I sent to Morrus apparently did not get through. So I created another account and asked Morrus about it before resending the mail.
Originally, I did not want to use it afterwards, but at some point I decided it would be interesting to use it as a sort of "evil twin", and so Ashardalon was reborn. For those wondering, he is an ancient dragon mentioned in many of WotC's Adventure Path modules.
 

ConcreteBuddha

First Post
1) I am slightly pretentious.


2) I dig the ramifications of combining "concrete" (a hard, static, real-world substance) with "Buddha" (an otherworldly, abstract, dynamic, enlightened one).


3) It sounds good as an email address. ;)
 

Ziona

First Post
I enjoy writing & gaming, so I happen to have a baby name book lying around to supply inspiration on names for characters. I was flipping through the book one night when I was creating my character & found the name Zion. Feeling that it sounded too masculine, I added an "A" and thus created "Ziona."

So, Ziona is my user name, but it is also the name of one of my pc's as well. :)
