that one guy wrote:Redwall! I remember reading those books as a kid! Wasn't Swartt some sort of bad ass Badger? If it's who I'm thinking of, that was the best, and darkest, of the Redwall books. Then again, that's not saying much. Basically just that there was slightly more killing and a not as happy ending.


I think he was a ferret, and yes, he was bad-ass. the books where really enjoyable, untill I read about 7 of them, en discoverd that thay where all about the same.

In Japanese... Ryūjin 龍神 - "dragon god"
Well... I'm mysteriously obsessed with dragon-related stuff since I was little, and I was born on the year of the dragon.

The origins of my nickname date back to the year.... 1996

This is the first time I had internet access. Quick witted, I came up with an internet name for my new free email hotmail account: isawrealduhs.


Fantastic, original, great!

Then I wanted to use IRC.

IRC was real teh suck back then, and that nickname was just too long. Being I was in #samuraipizzacats, I picked the name Speedy. Unfortunately that nickname was taken... so was Speedy2.... so.. I chose... yes.. Speedy3.

Well, I was being made fun of for my lack of originality, so I chose a new nickname "Yataro." (a gross mis-romanization of Yattarou from Kyattou Ninden Teyandee). Well, it was about this time that my fellow lurkers of #samuraipizzacats started getting me into TetriNET. I'd rather not go into detail on how good I was then, as that is a two-three page essay, but on TetriNET I adopted the nickname "Pupperoni." Pupperoni was a fan-fiction character I had made up in the Samurai Pizza Cat universe (the leader of an entire alternate team that would take place in another city).

Well... I was really really good at TetriNET... I didn't know how good until one day, I dropped onto a server for "Team-X." At the time, Team-X was the 3rd highest ranked TetriNET team online. I went in and played a few team matches.. but I was really board. So I asked them for a 5-on-1 match. They thought I was crazy and accepted anyway. After taking out 3 of them, one player swapped out for their leader, ProtoX. They thought two people where on the keyboard, because I was typing between line drops. Well... one thing lead to another and I ended up joining the team.

PupX, YataroX. I was a memeber of Team-X

I stopped using the Pupperoni nickname about that time. I was like freakn' Ranma, always getting challenges from different people (and always winning). YataroX stuck for awhile...

...Later on I started playing a game called Planetarion. It was (is) a web based game and a whole lot of fun (I played between rounds 3-5.. then they implemented races and made the game suck so me and my friends quit). I decided I wanted to try an original name again and came up with "DarkanoX." Well, half way threw the round, I was bombarded with questions as to what the X stood for. Not playing TetriNET anymore, I thought long and hard about what it should mean. Eventually I came up with "Xev." I'm didn't want to use Xavier, that much I was sure off, but I wanted it to have a Z sound. I prob heard it somewhere before... I can only make theories as to where.

Darkano Xev, that would be my players name in round 4 of Planetarion.

I thought Darkano sounded pretty lame after awhile. And to avoid having a 3 character nickname.....




TheXev was born, around 2001. It seems putting "The" in was the best choice ever, as I would find out a few years later that Xev was a character from Lexx. (Before I would found Xev in references to a band that played music on Lexx.. never knew Xev was a character).

This leads to the confusion that I am female (far from it). It also doesn't help that a few years ago this totally hawt Aus girl started using "TheXev" as her nickname on Myspace and youtube. But she is totally hawt, so I forgiver her. :)

I have used the same nickname from the very first day I came online. That was back in the newsgroup age, before usenet was used for binaries... Long ago. >__< It's taken directly from my initials, which I kind of owe to my grandfather: My parents didn't want to name me after a family member, but seeing how it was more or less expected of them to keep the family names alive they gave me a second name after my Frisian grandpa. The usual bad jokes aside, Message as a nickname has served me well. I've only once had to think of a replacement when the nickname was already in use.

My avatar is indeed Ginji, as it has in fact always been. It's funny someone mentioned that Raitei and I should exchange avatars, because in a way he may be right: Ever since the attempts of certain individuals to use my online identity in rather negative fashions, which I never either understood or enjoyed, I no longer present personal feelings or ideas in public forums like this. Those that know me in more private circles, even more so people I know personally, know that my real personality is in fact quite enthusiastic and energetic. Amano Ginji is very much like me in that regard. Though I wouldn't mind being able to generate electric discharges with my fingers. :P


Of course, one of the advantages of my particular nickname is that it's near impossible to google. >__>;;

My username comes from a derivation of Shoyru (The neopet LOL)

Actually, the name I use most of the time is Shoyriazu (a modification of Shoyru) but then I changed the first part to Azu to get Azuriazu.

Meh, my Name has Meaning, it has a personal one to me, but a Joke one too

Bel as in Bhaal, I read somewhere long ago that Bel was a corruption of Bhaal and mean't lord just like Bhaal/Baal did
Zera was greek for Seed

So "Lord Seed"

The Personal One is a little Emo so I'd rather not say it

EDIT: I read these things long ago so it could all be Bull for all I know

When I started playing Colony Wars on my old PS1 (back when it was just called the PlayStation...) I gave the pilot the name Terron - something to do with Terran, I think.


Anyway, Colony Wars: Vengeance came out, and in that game you get to play as the Navy, as opposed to the League - so, I flipped the username around, and made it a bit more Eldar-ey... thus Nerroth was born.


And the Earth - or, at least, the part of Ireland I was living in at the time - trembled.

I think only trolls for the most part do that, since they don't normally intend to stick around on the forum.
