I usually got by around 3 different names(depending on whether they are available or not). I either go by Orc, Gothar or Fallenninja666. This particular name was put together from 3 things: 1) My friends used to call me a ninja because my footsteps have no sound and because i can parkour with ease. 2) I once fell off a wall and so my friends started nicknaming me the "fallen ninja" 3) My love for heavy metal thus the "666" as a direct reference to Iron maiden's "666 the number of the beast"
Usually I go with something like CptEthan since my real life name is Ethan but I saw the release of Doom 4 and it reminded me of my childhood playing doom 1 on the GBA. So thats where the Doom part came from, and Slayer is from a dirty inside joke I have with a friend lols xD Not sure if I'm aloud to say it here.
Richard is my irl first name. My irl last name is highly unusual and unlikely to be found by googling my first and middle names. There is a particular user handle I generally use for online forums, but I decided I didn't want anybody to connect who I am on rpg mo with who I am in other online worlds for the time being, so I went with my normal-sounding alias instead. That way I'm also freer to see if there is a new version of myself I can discover by leaving my past behind.

Well, when I first started, I was playing via Facebook, which doesn't let you choose your nick. So I started playing as Robert62631.
Eventually xcicore explained how I could port my character, and I bought a name change scroll, and changed it to MisterAsheSin.
Ashton Sinclaire is the name of the first paladin I played, who actually lost his paladin status because he saved a succubus from being killed by a pit fiend (don't ask - our DM was as crazy as I am), and Torm didn't like that.. eventually I got my status back, after saving a temple from a great wyrm (prismatic spheres HURT).
Thus the name stuck.
May the Road Rise Up To meet you, May the wind be always at your back
My in-game name is festerblats, which I have taken from a character in the old videogames Space Quest from Sierra. His name is actually Fester Blatz. I chose it because I like that character, but also because the initials of my real name are FB. My name on this forum (Falbal) is a nonsense name that is also based on my initials.
