My name comes from an old SNL episode. There was a skit on the game show Who's more Grizzled. they had a bunch of old men on the "gameshow" who were describing their life.... At any rate, a few years ago, after my divorce, I knew how those old men felt and adopted the name.

Most of my friends think that its a referance to bears, I live in Alaska and after playing DM games some of them tell me that they have been mauled...

My name traces back to UT99. When I first started playing I was known as OmegaX100 (original, eh?) and I mainly played LG instagib CTF. I was one of the founding members of a clan (iQ-Instagib Quotient), as apart of the new tag I decided to get a new handle. Not only did a fellow clanmate come up with that clan name but some suggestions for new tags for us. We were hoping for clan tags that lent itself to the iQ moniker. Anyways, I took the tag Mach and added a 10 for effect. Sorta a play on the rapper Mack10. Anyways, the clan folded down after about a year and a half near the release of UT2K3. I decided to keep the same moniker for 2K4.

I know your name is Grizzled not Grizzled_Imposter? If you send an email to dru you can have the corrected name appear in game if in fact the name grizzled is not actually a reg player or a higher level one.

Some of you know already, but I may one day regret informing the rest..

When I first discovered the website [www.gamefaqs.com], I used it quite often when getting stuck on games. Well, one day the faqs didn't have an answer for a game, so I signed up to ask on the message boards.

As it happens, the game I was stuck on was a Mega Man game. Well, being the lil guy I was, I thought it would be clever to name myself after the game.

No, Mega Man is not cool. He's beyond cool. He's kool.

That's right, boys n girls. Mega Man Is Kool.

Gamefaqs.com is a good game site, btw. If you're stuck on a game, I'd suggest checking there first.

As some of you may have noticed, I have started a second character, which I am running as LW. I was trying to come up with a name like *BEL*_e, and pretty quickly came up with *BEL*_o (bellow, as in yell). But if you are trying to get my attention, you can still use E or spacey.

As for a medic, or any other class...still thinking about names of one, two or possibly three sylables starting with "bel". Ideas so far include:

*BEL*_a (belay that order)...would have been better as my LA, but...
*BEL*_i (as in belie the fact) ... ehhhh.
*BEL*fry (as in Bats in the...)

More thoughts needed...

*BEL*_e (spacey), BEL Clan General -- You Frag em, I'll Slag em!
LA -- *BEL*_e (level 283 - Extreme AM), LW -- *BEL*_o (level 26) MM - ?? ( *BEL*_Rolaids ?? *BEL*DrWho??, Engineer... *BEL*BS_E_E [BSEE '89, Ohio U] (level 22)

Smokes:

I was actually suprised, by the Imposter thing, kind of funny to see someone else play with the TAG I have been using for the last couple of years.

Mabe I will e-mail him, Until then....I guess I'm the poser.

Actaully, one of the guys I know came up with it during an assault mode round we were playing. Thay said, "Hey, why don't you change your name to having N.E.X.U.S. at the end. it;s be better than what you have now."
I was Tails_Hadoken at the time. Now I'm Fox_N.E.X.U.S. A play on the N.E.X.U.S. missiles but with my favorite animal in front.

Hate to say it--mine is from Diablo and Diablo 2 where my avatar was a barbarian--a friend of mine was was playing with me online and I was wasting a bunch of demons in D2 5th level using just a sword and shield-no magic at all. He said "way to go Demonslayer" and it just stuck. USA tag was for country id.....................my old names were "oldgrouchman" and diggie (a play on my initials DGM).

I just really like rock music. Actually I like all genres of music pretty much, but rock is by far my favorite. As for the Goddess part..... I don't really know. When I got my very first internet account, I needed a screen name/ email address, and as I was just starting to really get into rock music at the time, I decided it fit.

I'm known as DrkSlayer.... I started (pre DC server) as the typical can't come up with a handle so it was initials. Preceding to the infamous, lol, MooCow (ex'y and me had a thing with relating to cows). Then bad relationships made me DrkChalice, more bad luck in life gave me the fps name DrkSlayer... And I'm **bad words** sticking with it. I hate beliving in love, espicially at such a young age as I was many moons ago.

Umm...once apon a time in froland, I had a fro. So, people started calling me Fro, and the name stuck. I can also be known as zmanfro. zman because my last name starts with a Z. Also, you never know how many other fro's you'll meet so, I put a 13 at the end becuase it's my lucky number . Friday the thirteenth is a good poker day for me too.
