What's In A Name?

Whenever I'm in a town or outpost in Guild Wars, I take a minute to look at the names people have given to their characters. I love names - I think they're very important, and I love to see how creative people can be. Here are some of the names I've noted (some are misspelled by the creators - usually because their original idea had already been used):

Dolls To The Wallss
Llywelyns Shadow
Boring Yawn Yawn
I Am a Mexy Sezmer (mezmer)
(guild): Smot Pokers
Hey New Person [cute] - the [xx] is a guild tag, like a guild named Face the Fire has a tag [FF]
The Cloaked Guy (a ranger, I think)
Obie Quiet (that's one of my favorites)
Hama Kaze
Mud Stuffin
Celestial Moonwind (I think this was a monk)
Player Vs God
(guild): Grawls Gone Wild
Speared Ur Azz (a Sunspear, either Paragon or Dervish)
Booty Booty Rockin
Nano Chip (another favorite)
I Need A Name Please
Derves You Right (Dervish)
Para Gone Crazy (Paragon)

See, some use wordplays, some try to match the name to their character's "personality" (that's what I do), some use names from music or books or movies (I use book characters, too), and some just make something up. It's fun to see what they come up with. :-)

If you haven't yet, go to and download the client & join the Nightfall preview event.
Beautiful landscapes, cool new interface stuff, new professions, new skills, new pets, & more fun!

That's where I've been this weekend, in-between regular household stuff & visiting friends. :-)

I hope everyone's having fun!

~~~~~~~~~~~Feeding Frenzy

You think sharks are bad? Throw a little bread to a school of catfish...

We could hear them grabbing it. Pop! Pop-pop! Pop!

(These guys were outside that same restaurant where the froggy waved hello to us). :-)

Life in Tyria

(Tyria is the game world of Guild Wars)

My elementalist/monk character has finished the last of the game storyline missions in the first chapter of Guild Wars (Prophecies), but still has a ton of fun stuff to do there, and she just turned one year old the other day. As a birthday gift, she received a mini-pet. He's a (miniature) jungle troll. Thing is so ugly he's cute. She also has her 15k armor, which we dyed orange - looks great! Here are a few pictures of the outfit and the pet:

Pretty hot, huh? Erm, the outfit, not the pet. LOL

Another Critter

This is one of the froggies that was on the outside walls of a restaurant we went to (that's right on the water) while we were in Cape Canaveral to (not) see the shuttle launch.

Look, he's waving hello!

Pretty Buggie

This is a moth I found hanging out at school one day. Yes, it's alive.
