Ok, here goes...

I got the nickname Cazbar from my math teacher in 8th grade, which mainly was cross-related to my last name, Casper, and the musical phrase rock the casbah. From that point on I used Cazbar as my most common name for gaming.

I eventually started playing Everquest, which allowed me to have up to 8 characters at a time. I did occasionally have 8 characters and no life, which required me to spend a lot of time coming up with names for characters and not spend much time on important things.

I came up with Cazius as a name for my 2 foot tall super uber gnome wizard, which could nuke the pants off things 20 times his own size (don't ask me what I named the gnome warrior). Cazius was a member of the presigious but somewhat height impaired guild Legion of Little Folk. Within this guild I used the common surname for gnomes in the guild, making my character's full name Cazius Applepie.

Eventually I left Everquest, started playing Everquest 2, left Everquest 2, started playing World of Warcraft, left WoW, played EQ2 again for a while, played WoW again for a while, played EQ1 again for quite some time, and then decided all MMORPGs are crappy when they started making major changes to EQ1 to make it more like WoW (evil replacement devs).

Then I reentered the world of first person shooters, using the name Cazius. I eventually found this server and started living happily ever after.

The end.

okay well since I use my real name umm I guess here it goes...

chloe also spelt Chloƫ which is the way mine is, means "green shoot" in Greek. This was an epithet of the Greek goddess Demeter. The name is also mentioned by Paul in one of his epistles in the New Testament. Back in 1983 when i was born my name was listed as the 586th most popular name so as u can see it was rare, but in 2004 it was reported that in america its ranked number 23 talk about a come back huh. And chach Im pleased to inform you that in 2004 your name was 7th on the list of popular names.

And for those of you who still have problems pronouncing my name it sound like KLO-ee.

I think being called Cleo is a lot more tolerable than being called FolderFigure, FodderFinger or FodderFlinger, someone even asked me the other day "where is MotherFigure?" Although, they would have been far more clever if they spelled it "Mudder".

Hard to believe Chach is so popular, but I'm sure he's #1 on your list






You mean I really am important? How I feel when I'm drunk is correct?

My name Fire_Eclipse comes from the fact that I love watching eclipses and the fire part came from playing with matches and a fascination with fire. I woulda used turbo which has been my nick name for a few years now from when I started college at Powell Wyoming which then followed me here to Bozeman MT but I liked fire_eclipse it had a better ring to it and why not I always have flames coming off of me when I die.

There is no big story behind my name. It comes from hours of trying to get a yahoo acct. and getting the message "name already taken." The Sleepless part is true, but the playa part is more of a play on words(playa=player as in game player). Ive used this name for many years now. I used to use Dirty_D but it seems alot of people use that name. My nickname growing up was Noodle (long story).

My first name was Buffmiget witch came from back when i played Everquest. created a dwarf warrior and being 11 years old at the time with no imagination or spelling ability i named him Buffmiget because he had big muscles and was small. Then someone said i had to change my name on this server so it became The_Flash because I am a superhero in my spare time, but dont tell anybody im trying to keep my identity on the DL.

That wouldn't scare me away....

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

My original nickname was Gryph, shortened form my D&D character name of Gryphon A_Tak. It didn't last long, as I found that it was so widely used in forums and games that I couldn't even mispell it horribly to get an unused version. I spent half an evening trying to come up with an alternative that fit me, and frustrated, asked myself if I had sludge for brains. Thus was Sludgehead born. That lasted a little longer, until I began getting spammed on various mail accounts by angry fans of some obscure band of the same name, obviously incensed that some non-believer was using an alias that they felt belonged to them. I realized after reading a few of these heartfelt messages that my nickname (and all it entailed) should indeed be resigned to their loving embrace. I then came up with a few alternatives, after which I scanned a few of my chosen game rooms to see if there would be any duplicate entries. As I was checking these, I found two names that stuck in my head for the same reason that I always lose a sock in the dryer. They were DiamondJack and SwordKing. The resulting alias should be obvious to anyone who isn't a fan of some obscure rock band. In light of my playing ability, I may have overshot it a bit, but a more accurate nickname that would have something to do with my love of all things that go boom, was already in use by another DC regular, and she's just too nice to send any spam. Grrr.

Welp.

It all began years ago with a FPS called Starseige : Tribes (still among my favorites). I had a particular affinity to a mod where the blaster, considered one of the weakest weapons in the game, is a one-hit kill. It required much skill as there was a good 5 second lag between each shot, but I quickly developed considerable skills with it.

Anyways. One day on a capture the flag map I shot a random blast at the enemy bases door, not expecting anything. Lo and behold an enemy just happened to be running up the hallway... and it hit smack in the side of the head, killed instantly.

Thus one quick name change later and the legend of Dubious Blaster begins.

Sure is.

I've always appreciated Ric Flair's penchant for throwing himself over ropes and turnbuckles, or walking for a few seconds, before falling flat on his face.
