Zaknafein - The name of a fantasy character in the Forgotten Realms, the most popular section of Dungeons and Dragons. His full name is Zaknafein Do'Urden, and is a Drow elf Weapons Master of the House of Do'Urden. He is also the father of Drizzt Do'Urden, probably the most famous fighter/ranger in the lands. He taught Drizzt everything he knew, and ended up giving his life to the Spider Queen (The deity the Drow worship) in place of Drizzt's, so he can escape to the surface. While Drizzt was journeying to the surface, Zaknafein was re-animated by Matron Do'Urden (Drizzt's hateful mother) to kill Drizzt. Zaknafein regained control of his body before being able to kill Drizzt, and throws himself into an acid pit, so he cannot hurt Drizzt.

My sig - Obviously is Neo from "The Matrix Reloaded"

My avatar - Again, Neo from "The Matrix Reloaded"

At my school in English class we got extra credit (number of points decided by use of words and how funny the class/teacher thought it was. It had to balance out between how many laughs I got and if the teacher liked it) if we told jokes on friday. For one year I told jokes every friday for one year (I forgot most of them), and the class called me the jokemaster.

My av came because I loved putting Guybrush from Monkey Island in that pose during the second game.

My sig came from a variety of sources.

12-08-2003, 12:13 AM
hm. Here goes.

obi-wan13- the obi-wan is obvious, and the 13 stands for the thirteenth obi-wan. Yes, I am the distant grandson of obi-wan1. He came first,obviously, and 12 generations later, here am I.

Avatar- Every year around the holiday season I use my obi-clause avatar. (Ask anyone who's been here a while and they'll tell ya)

Sig- Also a holiday sig, but not the usual. I recently viewed the movie "Bad Santa" and loved it. Therefore, it became my new sig.

Well, the name Sam Fisher, is off Splinter Cell (best stealth/action game of this year IMO) I'm jsut using a KotoR av from somewhere.. no sig, but a KotoR quote..my JA online names...

12-08-2003, 01:09 AM
Name - Ratm those are the initials of Rage Against The Machine my first favourite band, now I have many. Jedi is just there cause I love the Jedi and think they are bad ass mother**ckers like Mace.

Avatar - It's a Ranger Captain shooting off his Thompson SMG, it's from a Medal of Honor: Allied Assualt Wallpaper when the game came out.

Sig - It's a Sig mainly dedicated to all the brave soldiers that have died in WWII and wars that have followed since then. Also the main part of the sig is the entire scene from the wallpaper and it has my screen name as it is when I play MOHAA with my tactical clan and last but certainly not least is a dedication to my late friend Dan that died in Iraq in August.

My name is a mix of Masamune and Murasame. I would've just picked masamune but I wasn't surprised to see it already picked :P. Masamune is seen on many games but it originates from a Japenese swordsmith who made masterfull, almost godly swords. Murasame was his rival swordsmith and he made swords of power. The legend goes that Masamune and Murasame both put their swords in a river. When the leaves floated up to Murasames sword they were cut into two. When the reached Masamune's sword, they floated around it. It is believed that the one who wields Murasame's blades will be doomed a life of violence and death and the one who wields Masamunes blade will live a life of peace and honor. Murasame has also been called Muramasa. Funky stuff :deathii: But mostly, I was gonna pick Masamune because its a kick ass sword in Chrono Trig and FF7(Sephiroth has it).

My avy and sig are Magus from a kick ass RPG on the SNES, Chrono Trigger.

Growing up with no family or home at all, and the only posession I had was a pair of Bongos I stole from some beaver charmer that died in a freak Shaving of the Ferret incedent(a great tradition, I might add), I layed Bongos on the streat for money. I had no name, and when the foster parents I now have came up to me naked and asked what my name was, I panicked and said bob. They then proceeded to call me BongoBob. One day I was on my way to the Valley of the Jedi, when an Albino Gnu attacked. I fled and lost where I was. I walked around and soon realised I was in a swamp. I saw a Metroid Hunter and a psychic killing maching and decided to join in their conversation. It seemed that the Albino Gnu's deadly testes bite had affected my sanity and was talking insane. I thought I was hallucinating when I saw a mna that appeared to be Darth Maul Talking with the Jedi Master Yoda(who was smokin a blunt). I thought I had lost all sanity from that damned White Gnu that I was hallucinating. When I went up and asked where I was, I was given a Welcome basket, a cookie, and a spoon. As I was wandering around discovering my new home, I heard a voice. It was the two men I was talking to before. I said hello to them and they replied,"Welcome to the epitimy of Insanity."

I have never been able to find a way out since.

12-08-2003, 01:58 AM
Was going to be "Backdraft" but that name was taken, so I came up with the first word that came to my mind (Don't ask). As for Backdraft, I decided to use that as my online name when I went on the intense ride (of the same name) at Universal Studios. Also the movie (of the same name) rocks. :thumbsup:

The Balrog from FOTR was simply the coolest-looking CGI character ever IMO. Plus it sort of has a connection to fire which connects to Backdraft.

Still a work in progress, one day I will make a Balrog sig...

12-08-2003, 02:01 AM
Alia - In the Dune series, Paul's pre-born younger sister who become possessed by their grandfather's conciousness. Don't let that fool you. I'm still the nasty old man you all know and love.

Sig and Av - Blue eyes and stuff, not really much worth pointing out. I suppose that they could have been blue eyes like those of the spice addicts, but that would not explain the blue eyebrows. Huh.

ET Warrior
12-08-2003, 02:19 AM
When I was in 6th grade my friend decided that if you dressed me up like a girl I'd look just like ET after Drew Barrymore dressed HIM up like a girl. He called me it all the time, and after awhile I started to like it. The suffix Warrior dates back to my Tribes 1 days, where my name was sith warior. I decided to add a little originality and swap the sith with ET, and it's been like that ever since.

Avatar is Paul Atreides from the Children of Dune mini-series,
sig is a sandworm from the Dune series.

Samuel Dravis
12-08-2003, 02:41 AM
Samuel Dravis is from the Descent series. I played the demo of Descent 2 for a long time, and then got the full version for Christmas. :) It was really fun. Then I bought Descent 3, and that was awesome especially the multiplayer. That made me want to buy the original Descent, and I found that in a resale shop, mint condition box with all the manuals and everthing. Did I mention that Dravis is the evil character? :D

Avatar: Made my own. I like it simple.
Sig: Used to have a some sig pics I made, but now just a few quotes. The first one is from a book by Garth Nix, Sabriel. It is a very good fantasy with two sequels (Lirael and Abhorsen). The second is from the The Two Towers movie. The third is from Freespace 2's intro movie. FS2 is the best space fighter sim since...well, since TIE Fighter. The stuff in orange is a personal opinion, although it should be everyone's.

The last is some programs I've made for Jedi Outcast/Academy to aid with scripting, and The Open Jedi Project is a mod that I will be contributing my new version of ConfigED to, when I am finished with it. Check out the forum; there's a lot of interesting work being done.

Rogue Nine
12-08-2003, 05:44 AM
Rogue Nine, aka Corran Horn of the X-wing series. I chose this name back in 1999 after becoming enthralled with the books and the fact that I posted on the XWA boards. Nowadays my name is normally shortened to Nine or Niner as people know me.

My avatar is Shannon Casull from the anime Scrapped Princess.

12-08-2003, 07:05 AM
The story behind the name..Episode 16: Alegis Gensan

short intro: I started playing MP January 2002, with No One Lives Forever by the name of LowRider..(i was looking for a nick and ATM I liked the old song Low Rider by War), after I stopped playing it 5 months later (would,n't work anymore) and got to play JO, I used one of those silly 'Jedi Name' generators and I got something like "Aleers Gensan", and someone else who turned out to be my arch enemy over the web (ok that sounds pathetic for me..) said "Alegis .." would be better...Never changed nick afterwards..It's unique, and ok. And because it waqs made with one of those generator thingies it has a close reference to my real name (Alex)

12-08-2003, 07:44 AM
ok, my name is IG-64. I'm always bored.... and... uhhh.... ya

oh and btw, ig-64 is an assassin droid that is force sensitive

I want to read Mamba's story. He's got the best av/sig ever. =) RHCP #1!

12-08-2003, 09:45 AM
My name came from...well, just wanting a name that was a little different, kinda funny, kinda gross. I made it up when I started playing Delta Force 2 online and have just stuck with it for a few years now. Now it's pretty much the only name I use for the internet at all. And no, I DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE A COLOSTOMY BAG. Nothing irritates me more than to be playing a game and have some jackass try to make jokes about my name, like my name's not already a joke. Like it was an accident or something. For example, I join a server for any given game, and some yahoo says: "Hey $#!+ BAG! LOL". To which I usually reply with something along the lines of "yeah. HAWHAWHAW, buddy. I haven't heard that one before". Seriously. It happens at least once a month.

My avatar I can't remember exactley where it came from, but it's something I'm sure everyone's thought about doing at least 72 times this afternoon.

And my sig, a friend and fellow squad member made for me, because I suck at making them myself. Oh, and the quote is from one of my personal hero's books. George Carlin Brain Droppings. That's that, if anyone gives two poops.

12-08-2003, 01:26 PM
Well my nick is from this (http://www.weebl.jolt.co.uk/pie.htm) . ah how i love it! :D
My av is ed hunter, the official mascot of Iron Maiden, which i am a big fan of...
My sig is made by siv (thanks :D ) and also is from weebl & bob, or actually it is a fan art submitted by someone... I'm working on a new one to match my av, but since i have no experience with psp, i don't expect anything other than that it will suck, but still, i made my av though :)
Oh, and the sig text is:
"mysterious powers indeed" is from a weebl episode
Yes, i am a super mod at the valley, joetheeskimo's forum (join it now!)
the lyrics are from the iron maiden song Brave New World, which rules :D

Orca Wail
12-08-2003, 02:16 PM
great. Now I like this stupid seires...

Now everytime I look at ed hunter, screaming, I'll just think of weebl's innocent little voice saying mmmm...pie!

does he ever get pie?

12-08-2003, 03:17 PM
well, he gets close to having it, but as i can remember, he always looses it to some cheeky monkey, bull, chicken, or whatever else :rolleyes:
u should post in 'the church of weebl', a thread made by herminator_64... ;)

12-08-2003, 04:40 PM
Well hmmm.....

Ok, Insane was because people at school would call me insane because, well.. technically I am but whatever.
I then took that and placed it with Sith, a species of alien in the anime/manga Outlaw Star, they are cool buglike aliens that just kick ass, even though in the manga they rarely show up but are none the less ... interesting

My avatar is GIR, from Invader Zim, doing his impression of a squirrel he saw earlier that day. My custom title just pertains to a character I made up out of the blue "Sir Fizzlebottom".

My sig is .... GIR from Invader Zim. He loveded piggy, he loveded piggy real good.

I wanna hear wacky's story! We must drag him here.

12-08-2003, 08:45 PM
Not much to explain. I just thought joetheeskimo was catchy, and I am a geek, so that's where I got my title. And I'm obsessed with Worms World Party, which is why I made this combo. Although usually, I have a Jango Fett combo.

12-09-2003, 12:49 AM
Oh... I already did this. If anyone would be so kind to copy/paste my info from the other thread awhile ago? ^_^

12-09-2003, 12:55 AM
Well gee!

wildjedi is just another something with the word 'Jedi' in it... as with many other names I've used elsewhere (jedioftheorchestra, greatjedi, jedijumper,) Generally, I just put some other word to go with Jedi... it doesn't necessarily have to be something that has anything to do with me. (I'm not very wild:D )

Av was just one of the pictures available... just chose it cause I liked it.

Sig was because at the time, my mom was always telling me that my brain needed food... it needed energy or something like that...

Originally, that's all I'd put in there, but then I decided to try an example of me without 'brain food', trying to get a computer so I could stay here. Now, I'm just in and out, so it doesn't really work all that well any more... oh well. Still fun!!!:D

Original Name: Jedi220

Jedi, then the time of registration: 2:20 AM. Name originated from the FileFreak forums at JK2Files.com.

Name: Jed

T'was shortened by my dear friend Reb Starblazer, which seemed to stick. T'was my nickname for a long time, and upon modship, I requested a name change.

Thar be my history.

12-09-2003, 01:26 AM
I was looking for a name that sounded and was typed a bit like my last name, Jacques (i'm french, eh)

So i adopted Jackal from the infamous assassin. (yes bruce willis playes this guy in a movie with the same name)

avatar and sig:
I allways use my own artwork for these. In this case its a personnal project that I had intended to include in my portfolio and enter into a prestigess contest. Its a collage of photos I've taken of my friend infront of his many destroyed and guted cars, infront of a huge shed. The final product is beautiful in my opinion, but its not finished. I want it to be perfect so I can have a chance of actually winning in the student categories.

If i recall right, I can claim that title aswell. Or am I hallucinating again? :D

Anyways, although I´m not for name changes, I´ve had one here (and at echonet). Its not actually a real name change as its more a little shortening of my original name.
Some will remember me as Padanime, the name that came from a threesome or at least that claims sivY (padme, anakin and me). But as I dont share in a relationship :p the name infact is a duo: pad-ani-me, as in padme and ani (anakin).
After people got to know me more they started to get really lazy and called me Pad. I myself used that name a lot aswell and so we have the final result.

Av: Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction. On of the best actors in a trully great flick (directed by Quentin Tarantino).

Sig: Uma Thurman as the bride in Kill Bill. Another piece of artwork created by dearest Quentin Tarantino.

Happy now?

Father Torque
12-09-2003, 11:11 PM
Name: Father Torque from the hit action game Full Throttle. It has been my all time favorite game ever since i was a little squirt.

Av: I have gone through many av's all being related to KFC. My First av, was the old school red and white kfc pic with colonel sanders, then siv, (sivy b) at the time, brought the wonderful world of kfc animated avs into Father Torque (me:p). Then I moved on the matrix av rage, then back to another animated fkc gig, then finally, this great one by our very own Darth Eggplant.

Sig: Also made by Eggie, this sig is sweet, combining the colonel and terminator, a killer combo IMHO. This is truly my coolest sig, well.....except for that one I made for the FTF. That was the pimp sig:D.

Jedi Luke
12-10-2003, 02:19 AM
Whoa, haven't posted here yet. Ok...

Name: Luke Sirra Jedi. I have two nicks at school, around family, soccer, all that stuff. The first is 'Sirra' and the second is 'Jedi Luke'. So i thought just put it all together. At the AOTCTC forums I'm Jedi Luke as well as at Dark Forces forums.

Avatar: The terminator movies rock! I can be a terminator at times, :p j/k. So cos I like terminator and terminators are not to be messed with, are almost indestructable, it fits. :D

Sig: I am a mapper and scripter for the Dark Forces TC MOD for Jedi Academy so of course I'm just advertising. Remember ppl, good things come to those who wait, and something BIG will happen :). I'm also working with the Reborn Ancient Jedi TC MOD not as a mapper or scripter but as a Beta Tester. So what are you doing? Start checking out the MODS!!!

12-10-2003, 06:17 AM
At the age of 7, some people who worked at a gas station would always say, "Hey, Hotrod!" when I walked in. Don't really know why, but it stuck. I kept the nickname "Hotrod" till I started playing Diablo (the original). The name "Hotrod" was taken, so I changed it to "The Hotrod".

I moved onto Starcraft and started a clan called The Reapers. The tag for Reapers, was (RP). My name was (RP)TheHotrod. Eventually, I became to busy and retired from the clan. However, my starcraft name remained to be (RP)TheHotrod due to it being my account name (that can't be changed).

When signing up for things, I found that "The Hotrod" was now often already taken, so at the age of 13, I dropped the ()'s, and my name became RpTheHotrod. It's been that way for the past 7 years.

I recently lost a very meaningful friendship to me that originally started online (I also met them in real life). Unfortunatly, some other people online decided to try to get in between and start rumors about me. In the in, I was devastated. Also, my name was slandered and my reputation was ruined. Everything was awful. None of it was true...but I was no longer trusted due to these rumors. 6 years of friendships were torn apart in front of my eyes. That along with several other things happening in my life...I decided to kill RpTheHotrod and lay his name to rest...so that the name may still hold some honor in rememberence.

I've broke contact with those who met so much to me, and I changed my name to #include. I am going into computer programming, and it is a code that's used in C++ programming.

I still hold RpTheHotrod as my forum name here since you all recognize it.

May Rp rest in peace.

The Hotrod

12-10-2003, 03:17 PM
Well, my name used to be Bakers8er when i enjoyed Skateboarding for about a year, I roda a Baker brand Skateboard.

I changed my name a few months ago to KBell, after my favorite football player by the name of Kendrell Bell, and i just thought KBell sounded nice.

My current AV and Sig are from Deus Ex 2 that was recently released, but i doubt those will stay, because I basically change avs and sigs weekly ;)
