I hate shades in DnD, almost as much as I hate not having a DnD game to sit down and play at.

My high school nickname was Spiffy. My mother took that and started calling me Spifficus. This is the first and only online game I play and for some reason when I was firing this game up for the first time it popped in my head. Spartacus had just come out on starz I think and that may of had something to do with it too.  :D
THIS IS PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY GAME I PLAY. LOVE IT!!!

Leggat served as first mate aboard the Sephora, in a short story by Joseph Conrad.  The Sephora was foundering in high seas, and a crewman tasked along with Leggat in rigging an emergency sail froze panicked and began arguing.

The remaining sails were nearly lost, and with no speed they'd be at the mercy of the waves.  Leggat decked him, and went about reefing the foresail.  The man attacked, and as they struggled a wave  crushed the ship.  When they surfaced against the rails, Leggat's hands were around a dead man's neck. 

Saved the ship, and crew, and was promptly thrown in the brig for his troubles.  Story goes on to detail his escape, and essentially to frame the context of his split second decisions, and their ultimate ramifications.  I find that the persona informs my view on team-killing, heh.


If you ever happen to encounter any of Conrad's other characters, that's just me playing when there aren't enough CC'ers on. 

Cheers!

I'm no tk'er, never needed or wanted to be.  I have, though, relieved KBucy of his head via BA heavy laser, while he was mech shopping/spamming insults, months ago.  Just the one time, it felt both great, then dirty.

Against All Authority is/was one of my favorite bands back in middle and high school, and they were commonly known as Triple-A (with a triple Anarchy symbol as their logo).  It is, however, difficult to use as a login sometimes...for instance, the MWO forums changed it from -AAA- to aaa2 a few weeks ago...and I'm now stuck with it since it can't be renamed.

You have to understand the code of duty and honor that rules those who pilot these engines of destruction. Placing such an awesome weapon in the hands of an individual implies a similar gesture of trust

Familiar with Latin, like the original meaning of the word.
When I started using it back in BF2142 I had to add x's to get the name.
Added in some caps and really liked the look, been my official name ever since.

I've been using treach as my nickname from the days of playing Doom II online. The year would be 1994 or something. My nickname is actually short version of Treachery. I like the word, just don't like how it looks. That's why i shortened it and i never use caps in any of the letters. And that's the way i like it :)

I was called P3CK for a long time. I chose that for sounding like one of the Star Wars Droids. That was in the "LAN Party" - Age, before widespread internet.

Then Online Gaming happened, and my nick was taken already pretty often. As i did make music back then, NoZart (as a bastardisation of Not and Zart (german for tender) was born. And that nick is pretty unique until today, it was even free on XBLive :-)
