    I don't have a screencap, but I saw some guy named Mont Claran, probably the shittiest name I've come across.

    I'm not even a Tolkien fan, but I'm just pissed that he says "it's from a movie".

    It didn't even occur to me to be appalled by that, but now that you mention it. D:

    And to contribute, we've been trying to recruit lately (well, ALWAYS, it seems) but we have this line about "Your name must not be offensive or ridiculous" in our application rules. It's an RP-PVP server and we like to avoid playing with people named Beefybull and such. So the other day we recruit a new hunter. He says he has a holy paladin friend interested. Yay! Tell him to post an app, we say.

    Holy paladin's name? Darkexzile.

    At least have FUN with it, if you're gonna make it semi-humorous.

    See, my troll warrior on an RP realm is funny, but it works as a serious name: Vultrahn.

    Too many people have tragic "my life sucked" backstories. So my guys backstory amounted to "A mutant who figured he should use his superpowers for the good of humanity rather than be a dick."
    Both parents are alive, no one to exact revenge on, he lives a decent life with friends and loved ones.


    My villain? Same story, only he decided to be a dick.


    But this doesn't mean I'm safe from guys like "SS35Vegeta" in the middle of town, crowding the trainer and asking why they can't get a cape at level 1.

    My EVE character is called Marshall Boddiker. I wanted to spell his second name Boddicker in honor of Clarence from Robocop but they won't let words like Dick in your name. Even although Marshall is now a proud 'member' of the WANG alliance.

    Oh, and I fly a Drake Battlecruiser which I name The Duck of Death in honor of Gene Hackman in Unforgiven. On reflection, I should probably rename it The Dick of Death as they don't seem to actively screen ship names (I flew a mining Osprey called Fruit Fucker for a while). A mispronunciation wrapped in a typo.

    Yeah he does, except that he didn't have the name Legolas. He was named Legolas+extra characters that ruin the name, because he was probably the 600th guy on his server who wanted it.

    RP realms and mods like FlagRSP2 or Myroleplay take care of that.

    I use those mods for surnames.

    But dear god, some of the descriptions... some people write damn novels, as if people really need to know every detail about your vampire demon princess night elf.

    I can't remember what the server name was, but I remember running into a character who basically put the plot of Final Fantasy X into its Bio and patterned the character after one of the female characters from that game.



    (City of Heroes that is. Trying to stay in line with the other CoH bio stories.)

    I'd really like to play CoX.

    However, the developers decided to give a big 'fuck you' to the Macintosh community.

    At least, there was no Mac client last time I checked. I assume that hasn't changed.

    Man, CoX (and pretty much every game ever, but it's the one I've played most) is full of some real winners in the typo department. There was, of course, HELL'S FURRY, but there are oh-so-many variations on Fallen Angle and Son of Lusifer, plus scads of Cheifs, Captians, and sneaky Rouges.

    That is because Blizzard has the budget to hire people to make it run on a Mac. Most games do not have that extra budget. You can use Windows Boot Camp to run just about any game now, though.
