I Was Always Wondering
that dremora_kynmarcher named after Kinn's Marcher
I Use My Real Name :)
I once got home after anight in the town and a heavy munch session at various fastfood suppliers i logged in at my local quakeserver (probably even the shareware server since i didnt kno instantly you could just add "registered 1" to unlock the full game :P)
and i named myself De_Verorberaar wich means the_devourer. I used that pretty long but the guys at the local ctf server where just to lazy to type more then 4 chars so it got abreviated to orbs.
My other nick Optimus Joop: My friends call ourselves jopies (and sometimes other people if they qualify), a jopie is someone who likes to smoke drink party (actualy none of those ingedients are required but i geuss its a fair description like this)
and i jsut added optimus (most other got a jopie nickname alike) and i forgot if that came from optimus prime or its just my classsical education and the little Latin that stuck
It Was 1996...
And I was playing multiplayer Queck and I wanted another nickname than "player" and this was the first that came to mind.
I still use it to this day. :3
Play on my name...nothing special.
Oh Cool, Never Seen This Thread!
I play trombone.
bite is an alliteration to make it sound catchy.
I use brassbite only for this forum.
Interesting! I didn't know you played trombone.
Do you usually play jazz or classical? (or perhaps something else like ska or reggae?)
My used name is HexenMapper because I did a bunch of mapping for Hexen. I made a 15 map Hexen mod called "a Morte". It got mixed reviews...
He plays the rusty trombone.
I liked the phrase "one true blue" and decided to put a spin on it.
20 years ago I got my first real taste of multiplayer gaming in Quake. I was going under the name "Dr Death PhD", but was devastated to find someone else with exactly the same name on the same server! So I switched to a name that embodied the attributes I hoped to display as a quake player. I'm not sure I ever managed to live up to the name, except when playing against my girlfriend.
ds are my initials, I added them because dumptruck is used already on Xbox Live, PSN and message boards.
I don't tell people the thru origin of "dumptruck" - it's not that exciting but not something I like to share.
My previous nick was "whitejazz" but haven't used that since 1998.
Interesting Resurrected Thread... I'll Play
My previous nicks were enliten (or n-li-10) and reiki.
Both of which I found really wanky.
So I decided to think of what I like, turns out I like space and quake. So I combined Astronaut and Shambler.
It works a little better in an Aussie accent because the "o" in astronaut becomes more like an "a" (astra-naut). Similar to the way the Aussie accent messes with the "er" in shambler making it an "uh" sound, (sham-bluh).
In my accent it sounds like sham-blah-naut.
Quake master. Because I thought I was one when I was 13. Guess I am one now.
Lo Frag Traff
...was a name for a character in an iain m. banks science fiction book called 'excession'.
i latched onto the 'frag' thang for obvious quake reasons.
apart from that, what else could it be twisted to mean?
low fragmentary traffic?
I think I was subconsciously inspired by Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the character Frank Pritchard (who is a total prick), or more accurately a trailer for that game as I picked up the name a little while before the game came out.
It's a reasonably unique name and certainly better than any of the ones I had before it, even if it is "supposed" to be a family name rather than a given one.
I used to play CTF on pub servers as R00k1e then I got better, and dropped the 1E.
Though I had used names like deepfriednewbie, def1ance,and madcow, yet I think my 1st quake name was UnknownQsoldier after the comic UknownSoldier.

Blood will follow blood...
Dying time is here...
Q3A nick I used "back in the day".
According To William S. Burroughs' Naked Lunch,
a mugwump is a strange and drug-addled creature which dwells in the bars of the Interzone. I am a strange creature and I only do pot, but I like it a lot!
Over 20 years ago, amalgamation of Killer and Kills. Also lets have a bout of the "killies" aka frag the shit out of some people.
