My username is just a combination of my name and Doomguy.

I have no creativity.

I'm not good with names so I simply named myself after the reason I'm on this forum and included my year of birth in the name as well.

Well, when I was making a Reddit account, I decided that I need a nice username.

 

After a while of thinking, I came up with SirSteveTheGr8. Now, I don't use Reddit anymore, (I deleted my account, for feck's sake) but the name stuck. At least until I ran across a site which doesn't allow usernames that long. So then I just shortened it to just SirSteve.

 

Steve isn't my real name btw. I just liked the way it sounded.

Inside joke between friends and I from playing airsoft many years ago.  I was never able to get shot when I was inside of the fort we built in the woods, and one buddy goes "Dammit I am sick of these fort escapades!" It was funny as shit the way he said it, and to this day whenever any of us are particularly good at something, we credit it to "more fort escapades."  Just happened to be on my mind when I made the account.

MMMMMMMMMMMM, puddin'!

 

That or Jello Biafra, and me being in high-school and loving the Dead Kennedys and trying to figure out a user name. I don't know.

 

I don't think Bill Cosby is that well received anymore. After the, you know... rape.

Sounds like Babytown Frolics to me. And I'm really surprised there isn't a user here named Babytown Frolics. I like it though.

Pretty damned obvious. My name's Lee Jackson. I do audio, when my disabilities will let me. 'Nuff said. ;)

Wait, the Lee Jackson? The mastermind behind the RoTT and Duke3 soundtracks?

It's a reference to the Fighter class in Hexen who had the name "Baratus" while the "II" part came about when I looked at people's names having roman numerals (during the time I was learning in history class). The "THE" part was added later because I felt like tweaking my nickname.

 

So it went from "Baratus II" to "THEBaratusII".

https://nobilis.fandom.com/wiki/Lord_Entropy

 

Nobilis, in particular the now scandalously out-of-print and rare second edition, is a dark and beautiful tabletop RPG with scope epic enough that you could conceivably do anything with it. Anything at all.

 

The "in a nutshell" quote on the cover reads, "Gaiman's Sandman meets Clive Barker's Hellraiser on an absinthe bender, with flowers."

 

On some level, it asks the question: what if the ancient gods of Lovecraft were beautiful, rather than ugly, but still just as abhorrent?

 

Setting and system are so flexible and robust that you can pretty much challenge your players to TRY and break it with batshit character concepts and they won't. It would work just fine in one particular campaign if you had player characters alongside each other who were, say...

  • An ephemeral presence spread across five people with distinct personalities who collectively rule a nightclub empire
  • A wandering murder-hobo who massacres political extremists
  • A gorgon straight outta ancient Greek mythology with Perseus himself soul-bound as her hated servant
  • A young woman from NZ with a purpose, personality and quest inspired by Sakura: Card Collector (anime)
  • The actual Baron von Munchausen who performs extremely improbable feats on a regular basis
  • Discord, from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  The actual character brought to life.

... Which is a list of player characters from the last game I ran. And it worked beautifully.

 

Lord Entropy is a canon NPC who presides over Earth. As his name suggests, he represents a certain sense of doomed inevitability.

I wasn't certain if I could complete a map for a community 32 maps megawad, so I didnt tell anyone I was making a map. When the map was done I was in a hurry to submit it so I needed to come up with a quick username.

 

Spoiler

the map was also rejected.

I wanted to join Doomworld and quickly needed to come up with a name. Since Doom recently is about a "slayer" and mapping involves sectors, I just threw the two things together. Not sure however about the "creative" spelling. It's actually hard to read.

I somehow read it as "mini-slayer", my brain read two different lines at first glance. The plush avatar didn't help heh.

 

The name is great but I do agree with you that 'Sector Slayer' would do it justice. If you do decide to change it then keep the avatar, love it.

I checked out Lee Jackson's profile at Doomworld. There is a reference to visiting "the Stetson Factory Outlet Store in Garland, TX" where his wife "took a picture" of him. Wikipedia indicates: "His wife, Brenda, retired from the IRS's office in Dallas in October of 2018." Garland, TX is a suburb of Dallas, TX. Putting the pieces together suggests we're talking about Lee Jackson of D3D and Rise of the Triad fame.

 

But you could simply go to his official website and skip all the amateur sleuthing. Heh.

or just trust what is written in "about me" (because why not? ;-):

Also composed the Shadow Warrior, Stargunner, and Rise of the Triad soundtracks

D'oh! How could I have missed that? I suppose I was expecting that blurb on the main page.

I have no idea why I picked mine.  I'm actually a health freak and I'd never order a side of fries from McD's... ever.  In fact, I'd never willingly eat at a Mc Donalds to begin with.
