Ricochet Rita was a long running Shadowrun character of mine (originally created from the newly-printed First Edition rules), which I used in both online & real life campaigns, often with members of the SR & SR:TCG development teams.



She played active roles in the venerable ShadowTK community and made minor appearances in a number of Shadowrun sourcebooks, most often in the form of "black post" comments on the document's actual text. Her most notorious reference was a post mortem nod by SR Line Developer, Rob Boyle, in a Fourth Edition book's introduction. (Although, some would claim in reality, she pulled a fade & retired.)

Rita's handle, itself, is a nod to a minor Marvel Comics heroine/villain.


I frequently choose "RicochetRita" as my username, since it's rarely, if ever, taken. This is good, as I also abhor using d1g1t5. yuk

Short version:

I originally used the moniker of DeathGuy as I had set up the Los Angeles County Coroner's Gift Shop's first website. After they took the site's administration in house, I continued to use it but it didn't feel right.

I participated in the 3 charity Star Wars lines in Hollywood and made ID badges for other line members. The ID badges caught the eye of Lucasfilm, who requested a set for their memorabilia vault. The badges for the second line have since been replicated as pull-outs for their official "Star Wars Vault" book.

I have since the first line been known as "The Badge Guy" and took it up as my username in most places on teh interwebs.

As far as my avatar goes, that is another geek list, but suffice to say, I had no idea what to put there, so I give you a bunny with a pancake on its head.

Most people think "Binipped" has something to do with being bisexual (it doesn't and I'm not). In high school my best friend had a third nipple and I would call him Trinipped. In response he would call me Binipped.

Sr. Ulé comes from a classic night program on Catalunya Radio (the catalan public radio) in the 1980s.
The program was called "El lloro, el moro, el mico i el senyor de Puerto Rico" ("The parrot, the moor, the monkey and the man from Puerto Rico", after a popular comic poem) and was hosted by Jordi Vendrell, Ramon Barnils and Quim Monzó.
The program was outstanding: acid, clever, fun! You just have to read something written by Monzó to get a taste (like the unforgetable "Enormity of the tragedy" http://www.peterowen.com/pages/fiction/enormity.html).

I liked this Puerto Rico broadcast to the point I unawarily kept saying Jordi Vendrell's catch phrase "Ulé!" (a fun catalanization of the classical bullfighters Olé!) all the time.
So I come as a teenager to this wolfpack called ARES ("Associació de recerca històrica i simulació", historical research and simulation association), in Barcelona. In a few weeks I lost forever my first name and I've been ever since "l'Ulé". As I'm far older now, I though of twisting it slightly so I'm here "Senyor Ulé".

Now that Vendrell and Barnils are dead, I see it as a posthumous homage to such great fellows. Monzó thanks god is still unstoppable and it is also a living recongition of his talent.

When I was younger, I did a lot of martial arts, and was thin as a stick insect. One of my brother's friends coined the name Wafer Thin Ninja. Its not true on any level any more (no more martial arts, middle aged spread), but I've used the name online ever since.

The sir name Hiko come from one of my favorite animes, Rurouni Kenshin. The full name is Hiko Seijuro. He's the sword-master that teaches the tittle character, Himura Kenshin, swordsmanship and the principles that their style.

The first name, Bunta, is from Initial D. Another of my favorite animes. The full name is Fujiwara Bunta, he plays the owner of a Tofu shop. More importantly though, he is the father of an incredible street racer. He himself use to be a legendary street racer as well, but now that his racing days are over, he just helps his son by giving him bits advice and tunes the car up from time to time.

What I admire about each character is their compassionate father figures to each of their pupils. They both know they can't get actively involved in their conflicts because they each understand that there are certain challenges in life that one must handle alone. So all they do is tell their respective students what they need to hear and hope they listen.

So that is where the name comes from, two men who's skills are beyond reproach, and who's skill is only surpassed by their compassion.

Well, I used to be dotman because I was really big on the use of elipses ('...' three dots not four, not two) when I marked other student's work at university.

But more recently (a few years ago) a neighbour commented on how piratey I was. I hadn't really given it much thought until I needed an xbox account name and because I hate usernames with numbers in them and because the word pirate was already taken I was kind of stuck.

While I was setting up my account an advert for Jamie Oliver's Naked Chef came on and I just figured, why not? The name was free and I have been The Naked Pirate ever since.

About ten years ago a friend of mine hosted a movie night every Sunday, and preferably we watched a movie that was not out in European cinemas yet. One time, he was just back from a trip to Asia, and he brought with him a DVD with the first South Park movie (Bigger, Longer, and Uncut). The movie had been released in the US just two days earlier, and would not be released in Europe for another month or so.

The DVD contained a very cheap rip of the movie, with Malaysian subtitles, obviously meant for the Indonesian market. While watching, we usually had no idea what the subtitles said, but sometimes their meaning shone through, and it was very clear that the translator had only a very limited grasp of the English language.

For those who have not seen the movie, it is a musical with some catchy songs. Probably the best song is "What would Brian Boitano do?" I had never heard of Brian (he seems to be some famous figure skater or something), but I found it hilarious that the subtitles translated his name to "Flyboy Connor". I guess if you know very little English, Brian Boitano sounds a bit like that.

From that point on, for me "Flyboy Connor" is an archetypical childhood hero, and a good user name.

My user ID here is simply my initials: John W. Brock III. snore

However, it does make a particularly good username from one forum to another, because the letter part contains no vowels and is therefore nothing anyone would go out of their way to choose... and just in case they do, I'm leaving them jwb1 and jwb2. I only remember one time when I ever entered this username and was told it already existed, and I think I figured out I'd actually been there before.

==========================================================

A much more interesting story (at least I hope!) is the fate of the first username I ever came up with, back in the days of GEnie and Aladdin. In college I had taken a course about the Holy Roman Empire, and a bit from one of the textbooks had caught my imagination; the author described how the early HRE was served by a group of knights who owed fealty only to the Emperor, and who basically traveled around Germany doing his bidding. In short, they came across as the German equivalent of the Knights of the Round Table -- only a lot more humble. This fit my self-image at the time as someone who was trying to do good in service to a set of higher ideals, but who wasn't arrogant enough to proclaim himself "Round Table" worthy.

So, I adopted as my username the term by which the author had referred to the members of this group: a German phrase translated as "servant of the realm", a.k.a.
"Landesknecht".

Several years later, in the middle of my explaining all this to another GEnie user, somebody popped in and said, "Uh, you're spelling it wrong." This led to a discussion which, for the first time ever in my life, informed me of the existence of the concept of Landsknechts as they are most commonly known -- German mercenary warriors of the 16th century or so, who were only out for themselves, were definitely not in service to any higher ideals, were definitely not humble, and dressed like peacocks to boot! So it turned out I had accidently adopted a username which, to most people reading it, said exactly the opposite of what it was supposed to about me! blush

I've chosen the game "Shadows Over Camelot" because the incident did, indeed, cast a permanent shadow over my whole "German Camelot" conception... ...and I've never used that username again!

That textbook is still around somewhere, up in the attic, but I've never found the time to go back and verify whether my spelling was the one the author used... and I've never found anything to explain how, over the course of several centuries of German history, the term came to mean almost the exact opposite of its original intent!!

We went on a school excursion trip to London and at the underground station were handed some flyers from the "spiritual healer Ashman".
It featured some semi-vulcan hand sign that I started to copy and some classmates started calling me Ashman (no bad karma, I hope).
I started using the name for video game highscore tables etc.(instead of "Heintz" which is a story for another time) and it somehow stuck.

So, i went to University in 1992, and quickly picked up the name 'Nogbad the Bad' from the old kids tv show Noggin The Nog.

This lasted all through University and my first 3 jobs, around 7 or 8 years total. Then when trying to register places i realised that Nogbad was taken every now and then, and it irked me. No way was i going to start putting numbers after my name, so i had to come up with a word that no one would ever use.

Well, at the time, i was working at another Games Company, and well, to put it bluntly, we had nicknames for everything. One of these was 'nak' which meant porn (naked->nak->porn). One of my mates came up to me one day and said...

'You fancy goth chicks don't you, i guess that means you are into Gothnak?'

And from that moment on, it stuck....

So, although everyone who sees my nick thinks i am a goth, it just means i fancy Goth women . It's something about the leather, corsets, piercings etc...

It does help i'm into Metal music, i do get to meet them all the time and well, they seem to like me

So, i probably have the sleaziest nick of all on the list...go me!

It was 1977 (or pehaps early 1978) during my freshman year at the University of Illinois. Several of us had made a couple of attempts to play a dungeon style game inspired by a dungeon game on the PLATO system. I have long since forgotten what PLATO stands for (Programmed Learning And ....) but the visage of large, orange, glowing plasma screens has forever been seared into my memory...and to a lesser degree, my retinas. The name of the game escapes me but it was faithfully reproduced for the PC in Telenguard.

Back to the main point. After a couple of attempts to create our own DnD, we ended up at a hobby shop, looking for inspiration. What we found was a box labelled Dungeons and Dragons. We now had all the inspriation we needed and the next two years of Friday and Saturday nights were booked solid. We had rules. We had dice. We had Phil the DM. We had chars. Damn, I needed a name.

I hate coming up with names for my characters. I have always found it the most frustratingly difficult part of making a character. Backgrounds i can do..names not so much.

So i pulled out my recently purchased copy of the Silmarillion for inspiration. What a treasure trove of ideas. The appendix beginnig on page 355 gives meanings to the elements of Elvish names. PERFECT!. An evening of study (we are in college to study right?) lead to the combination of two words.

val 'power'.
thalion 'strong, dauntless'

thus Valthalion,

Fortunate roles on the heredity tables (i think we added those) produced a noble background thus the required a title

Ara high, noble, royal

A last name was not needed for some time; time enough for Vals fortunes to take a most nasty and sinster turn. Thus his last name needed to reflect his fate.

amarth doom
gor horror, dread

Combined with a bit of editing the surname Amagar was born.

Ara Valthalion Amagar



After 31 years I answer as easily to Val as to Jeff and valthalion has become my handle everywhere on the web. I have had the "pick a different username this one is taken" about 5 times". 4 of there were me forgetting i already had registered with said website. The other was not me and I contacted the other user to find out where he / she got the name...perhaps it was someone I had previously gamed with...but they never replied.

guess i have rambled enough.

hope to see some of you at Geekway this weekend.

Val

I've been tagged with the sobriquet, Mister G, for many years. Back in the late 70s, I opened a music/video exchange called Renaissance Records (later Renaissance Music Media) that lasted 22+ years (until I got bored with it and shut it down). For my television advertising I used a character who was basically a cross between Godzilla and Mr. T, which is to say me in a Godzilla head mask, wearing loads of phony bling, and some other poor fool doing the voice-over. Even had one ad shot by the infamous Jim Vanbebber (director of "Deadbeat at Dawn," "The Manson Family," and "My Sweet Satan," the last two of which I actually appeared in), but most were done on the cheap. When I finally plugged into the Net back in the mid-90s, Mister G was the obvious choice for me, and I've used it in one form or another ever since.

Majik Mouse (because, rather shockingly, Majik Moose (a high-school nickname) was taken in AOL some 12 or so years ago... What are the odds.) I shifted the O to a U and there you go.

As a side note, my nickname from college, Ground Zero (acquired because of a remarkable penchant for being hit/knocked over/have things fall on me) of course acquired a far more serious meaning after 2001 and so I have had to stick with the mouse.

While studying computer engineering in the 90's I was working on a project with a few fellow students in a rather niche programming language called Progress. I don't even remember what it's purpose was!

While designing the project we were searching for a good name and incidentally there was a poster on the wall in the classroom from a body building magazine called Flex. And we being funny guys decided to build a new name: ProFlex.

Thus my name was born as a few weeks later I started playing in a Mud online and I've used the name of the project backwards as my characters name. I've used this name widely in online forums ever since.

Cheers,
Xelforp

Mine is based in a sketch from Fanhunter comics. I took it years ago, a day when we needed names for a shot'em up online game; we decided being a team with fruit codenames... my character's codename was Sr. Pomelo (Mr. Grapefruit)

Man, what did we drink that day?

Way back in 1976, writing a computer program to generate character names for D&D seemed like a good idea for some long forgotten reason.

The first one the computer came up with... "Olvenskol Skegmeer". I promptly named my longest-lived D&D character with that name and tend to use it as my online login.

Surfin Decoy was my college radio air name. It seemed to be fitting for the internet as well.

Oh my, it's been a while. I had to edit to correct the frequency.
