I forgot to mention that Pad is derived from my real name, Patrick. My friends call me Pad as it's shorter than Paddy and I'm not keen on the name Paddy anyway.

And whilst we're on the subject of originality / uniqueness of names, when I created my first AOL screenname years ago, PadTheMad was already taken :shock: That confused me ten times over as I thought it was quite a unique name. I've never seen it used since, unlike names such as Sephiroth1989656556156LOLOLOLOLOL

oh dear lord. 1990... DM was 3 years old when you were born.. it would be at least 7 years old before you would be able to do anything with it.. and by that point it would be still at least two years old on the SNES... I barely remember anything from when I was 5 years old..

it's facinating how you would find this game and not only that but be a big fan of it still. Simply boggles my mind.. I still expect everyone to be crusty old blokes like myself. Though, I'm not really that old.. but when I note that I'm double your age.. it does make me feel old ;)

1990... *shakes head*.. amazing...

It was for a Neverwinter Nights forum. I was playing a cleric, hence "brother". I made it "oh_brother" as a reference to "oh brother where art thou" and also as an expression of exasperation (oh brother!) because I was stuck in the game.
Now I must find myself a more interesting avatar...

Oh, I thought it was a cross between the "Oh brother..." quote and the fact that "Oh" is a DM rune...

That would have been much better. I wish I thought of that.

*blushes* if only it were true .. ~sigh~ I start to hate my own drawings about 3-4 days after I've done them. Part of the reason being that I see so many amazingly talented people every day on sites like conceptart.org or CGtalk.com and so on... those people are talented! but thanks all the same :)

My name is from the great RPG Amberstar. Since amber sounds quite female, i translated it to latin.

And because you originally were known as Amber, Sophia chose Sophia instead of Amber as her name, wasn't it so?

525? Well, I remember Gambit37 explaining his 37 somewhere, but I don't think 525 is the same case here... it would be unbelievable... or at least non-metric... :P

Only on my email address - AOL wouldn't let me have it as plain supersonic, or any low number, so I went for a easy to remember one! I vaguely remember it being something to do with the Intercity 125 trains we have... I couldn't have that either, so I added 400.

Sucinum - the anagram 'in mucus' always shoots out at me!

Because it was 100 better than 300, and MADNESS!
