Too much work to read through that crap again, so I'm not quoting it.

And since you're not suicidal, apathetic, or devoid of feelings of value and self-worth, I feel quite comfortable in saying, "get over yourself." Not particularly concerned that I'll drive you to jump off a bridge.

Why am I telling you to stuff it?
1. Because I, too, suffer from a degree of clinical depression.
2. Unlike you, I have not usually had the good fortune of being treated or medicated for it, especially over the last year or so.
And finally, I think you'll like this one...
3. For that last year or so, I was Joe's roommate.

So whatever you may think of his execution of the idea, to be so foolish as to go ahead and make your own assumptions and accusations is really quite pathetic.

Quit playing the victim/bigotry card, before someone else claims "darkblight" is racist.

I notice you have two posts to your profile. Welcome to Paizo. We are glad to have you here.

The hurt cannot be much.

No, 'tis not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church-door; but 'tis enough, 'twill serve: ask for me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man. I am peppered, I warrant, for this world. A plague o' both your houses! 'Zounds, a dog, a rat, a mouse, a cat, to scratch a man to death! A braggart, a rogue, a villain, that fights by the book of arithmetic!

Place your votes.

Would you by chance have anything else to offer, to any discussion? Reminding people to vote is by no means "sophomoric" but it does feel like it is in poor taste, given that there are two more days in which people may vote.

The short rebuttal first.
Consulates are diplomatic offices set up by one nation in another's territory. So by that strict definition, it would seem that all involved consider Saran and the Solarian Empire separate entities, same as the Australia and the British Empire example mentioned above.

The longer commentary.
There's a fine line between cool creative names, and the names that are just so "whatever" that I don't even bother trying to remember them. Thus, I firmly disagree with the posters who, in my perception, keep harping on it.

If I read correctly, the "Treehugger" character is long dead. In all likelihood, he wouldn't play an even mildly significant role in most any game. After all, I wouldn't think that Al Capone or Robert Stroud were all that concerned about who built Alcatraz.

There shouldn't be a concern about pulling people a little bit away from the "fantasy." In fact, I submit that letting players get too involved in the fantasy aspects takes away from the overall social gaming experience. Who among us hasn't had a fellow player get overly dramatic after their character had some horrible fate befall them? And who among us didn't roll their eyes at their histrionics?

Stop whining, get up, go get a drink--grab me a beer while you're at it--and roll up a new character.

Creativity is all well and good, when it adds something to the game--Rasputin is fairly easy to remember, and unless one is clueless about Russian history (or doesn't know about Hellboy), then you have an idea of what you're up against. Ditto for Abigail, a name that evokes two first ladies and Dear Abby.

Conversely, those names that are creative for the sake of showing off... "All hail The High Prince of Glenlivet Nokia, the Grand Poobah of Gollum Golems, His Royal Majesty Therup <deep breath> Denpray the Fourth." Inevitably, I call them "Bad Guy."

A character name (player or otherwise) is just a little icing on the cake that is a game.

To those who are concerned about that, let me just cut it off the the top for you, and I'll take the rest of the cake for myself. Thanks.
