After careful consideration I threw a handful of letters together. That was some fifteen years ago.


I am a gillman rogue, I like to warn my allies about elaborate ruses and hidden hazards.

Krom am like to fight monsters and expand him vocabulary.

Krom's new word today is vocabulary.


I used to spend way too much time goofing around and exploring Tirisfal Glades back when I played WoW because it was so pretty. When I joined up here, my normal forums alias was taken, so I took this :)

That would rival FaWTL in post count.


Sigh...where's Am Barbarian...I would love to hear how he (or she) smashed his (or her) name together.


I almost always name my characters after stars. Arcutiys is a sort of spinoff of "arcturus." It was my first mage character in a roleplaying game so long ago I forgot what it was. As for my avatar, what better one than a furry who looks extremely confused/angry?

FaWTL is infinite.


I'm not sure if you've seen Orthos' alias page lately, but so is it.

I've been DMChucky since email became available to the public. My first name is Chuck, been DMing since I was 13. The other part should be obvious to the more worldly folks out there....


It's...my name. Well, my actual name is Jonathan, but no one ever calls me that.

I only have about half as many as Patrick Curtin.


I found "Qunnessaa" = fairy in a dictionary of the Drow dialect of Elven I found online once, ages ago. I liked all the double letters, and it was a bit different from Sindarin, which I had tended to use for my Elven previously. And yes, I like fey!

So you're like 44 years old or something of that nature.


STEVE HOLT!!!!!!!


When Everquest 1 was released I couldn't think of a decent name for the dwarf that I was making. So I hit the random name generator and got this one after a few clicks. The name stuck and I've been using it as an online alias and a few D&D/PF characters ever since.


I'm an Antipaladin. And I follow Szuriel.

My friends call me Waffles.

The details are a little blurry, but it involved a late night drinking establishment, an outrageous challenge and a bottle of black Sambuca...

There were 68 other dmchuckys?

Lazar is my real life last name. When I got my fist copy of the preview version of OS X, I put an X at the end of it and that's my standard at home OS X, Linux, or Unix login. I use a different one as standard for professional work.

I also use it to try to distinguish myself from that other whacko Lazar.

You got a problem with that?

I do believe he's making fun of us!

My brother was on here frequently in the early days as Rambling Scribe.

Because I love to sow confusion wherever I go, I just shuffled things around a bit.

As a single guy in my late 20s, I have nothing but time* =)

* That's not true. I have two campaigns I'm GMing, three PbPs I'm playing in, a ton of worldbuilding I want to do, an entire folder of monsters I want to stat up, at least three books I want to write, an entire shelf and a Kindle full of books I want to read or re-read, a handful of ideas I'd love to turn into video games, and a lot of games I want to play or replay. Plus work.

Maybe he took that one bad year... i'm just sayin.


One of my frequent bouts of insanity, no doubt. No point in changing it; chances are, it will happen again and the new name will be worse.

There are still beings in the 5th dimension that won't talk to me; consequently I had to create an alias for 'nights on the town'.

The sugar rush alone took three days to wear off.

I like making happy things a little bit evil. My first forum name was on heroscapers.net and was a corruption of my church youth group's moniker: Dark Lord o' THIRST. Yeah it was pretty bad...

I once named a pink hippo after my pink-obsessed friend... she didn't see the humor. In any case the phrase "Pink Hippo" stuck with me and when it came time to make a new name I just added a corrupting Star Wars reference and Bam! new name.

GM_Solspiral actually built an evil fey hippo based on my forum name. That monster still sticks in my players' memory. >:)

Character is loosely based on Vash the Stampede, so I went with a *blank* the *blank*. As he is a Zen Archer, I made Nesod as an acronym for Never Ending Storm Of Damage, and Monckhinegun just sounded like fun, as well as being remembered, which is why he adventures.

Silver Crusade

I promised my little brother I'd make a character by this name.


The first MMO that I played, I used this as my first character name. Ragnarok Online, and she was a swordswoman. I recalled the theories that the stories of Amazons might have been inspired in part by the warrior women of the Scythian empire.
I use in all my online games now, although increasingly I find it taken. Still have never used it for a tabletop character.

Because of my deep and abiding love of kittens.


Short version - Favorite character in my favorite fantasy series of all time (The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant).

Long version - when I got onto the internet (back in text based days, BBS and MUDS/MOOs) the main reason I got onto it was social connection. I joined a telnet site that was basically a chatroom, but it was built on an test based RPG software, so you had to have a character. I couldn't think of a name for one - so picked the character I liked most from books. Mhoram or some variation has been my email, user ID on boards, gamertags since then - sometime in the late 80s.

For those that frequent other gaming board - I'm the same Lord Mhoram here, WotC, ENWorld, RPGnet and the HERO boards.

My first spellcaster I played fully. Flamehawke is a Human Elementalist. She has done a lot in the time I have gotten to play her and I have been playing her off and on for years. Everytime we play Earthdawn I pull her and her 'blood' sister out to play.

Flamehawke was built when I was just barely out of high school. She was built to look gorgeous, but acted like an airhead. The airhead bit was a cover so anyone they met would underestimate her skill and abilities. She once pretended to be a Nethermancer in order to freak out some slavers on a ship and then got locked in a battle with another caster.

Favorite though was when we saw a cave and she decided to investigate and when it was suggested that we don't because well there was a sign saying stay out she calmly stated that it was an invite. She told the party that anything saying stay out was an invitation to pleas help try out the traps or just to get you inside for a talk. After all if there is a sign outside the dark tower saying welcome please stay for cookies nobody would enter, but put out a stay out sign brings everyone in.

Best part is I actually convinced the group of that and they started using that as their cues as to whether they should enter a place or not.

Dark Archive

Some years ago, I made a good friend on a little internet game called the Kingdom of Loathing. After chatting for a while, they mentioned that their alias was an anagram of their name in real life. Curious about what the results might be, I plugged my name into an anagram maker online. And thus, Lord Synos was born.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Because I suck at coming up with names, and my usual handle on other places "Spfldbarrister" seemed pretentious on a gaming board. Honestly, I never really planned on posting as much as I have, I just wanted some advice on running Age of Worms so I created a quick alias planning on not really using it anyway. Many years later I'm still here, and I post just enough that I am afraid if I changed handles to something cooler no one would recognize me....

I took my avatar from the second adventure of Age of Worms. That guy sewing someone else's preserved eyes in his head really creeped me out, so I thought I would use him.

P.S. I am actually a very nice GM...


My last name is Thyme, so when I needed a PSN handle, I figured "wonder what thyme is in latin?" I loved how it sounded like vulgar but was completely innocent, and so I became Thymus Vulgaris.

The avatar is just plain awesome.


2nd Ed ADD chracter and my Drizzt clone.
Kryzbyn Myzzrym.
He started out as a "hey, that's be cool to play" to a challenge from my DM at the time "I'll let you play a Drow, but I won't go easy on you, you have to make the character work." So I did. He retired at the ripe old level of 14 having established himself as a hero on a grand scale. That game took 4 years real time or so.

One of my two all-time favorite characters.


Baron Klaus van der Kroft was the name of an AD&D 2e character modeled after Baron Hieronymus Carl Friedrich von Münchhausen, one of my favourite characters in literature and/or movies.

He had a stylish moustache, had a trusty cannonball he used to fly around the place, and was a very trustable person when it came to safeguarding the undergarment of ladies.

Started using it as an alias on a chilean roleplaying board around 2002 which I still visit on a daily basis (and eventually became the source of several real-life friends) and I guess I got used to it.
