Oh, what a nice little tread. So full of fun tidbits! Okay, my turn. Well in my intro tread, I made oh so long ago. I gave the short version, so I'll just give the whole story now. And without farther ado, on with the story.
Back when I was a kid, around 10 or so. I lived with my parents, and my two older brothers. My two older brothers were into board games, everything from D&D to Battetech. And its only natural that I too would fall in love with those type of games. My most fondest memories are when my brothers & their friends would come over. To have and epic adventure, as soon as i heard them on the phone I'd run to my brothers room & jump on the bed, waiting for the adventure to unfold. What would it be this time? A dragon guarding his treasure. Maybe a group of elite pilkots & their mechs. Or a shadowrun gone wrong. But all that bales in comparison, when they finally let me join in on the adventure.
But first I had to get a name. A first & last name, the first name was easy. I had this Nintendo Power Magazine, sadly I dont have them anymore. But there was this one issue, that had an detailed walkthrough on the Secret of Mana game. There in the pages, was my first part to my alias. Erim, I most admit, it was a long time ago. And my friends that I've told this too. think I'm mistaking, but i swear it was there. In the Secret of Mana walkthrought, where it talks about the Four Gods. One of them being named Erim. I'd ask my brothers, but their older than me & twice as forgetful
Now shall we continue? Coming up with my surname was a bit harder, as I didn't just wanna take a name from something else again. Even thought I didnt want to just take a name straight from something. I was reading anything i could get my little hands on. And I was in luck, because that very week in school. Music class, to be more precise. We were learning the song,"The Name Game" by Shisley Ellis. For those that dont know of it, shame on you! lol And a quick youtube search will fix that But I digress. So for that whole week I was going around singing & rhyming, rhyming & singing. So with those two forces at work it was only a matter of time. Got my hands on my brother's History school book, he was studing Ancient Egypt. So.. lol Can you pronouce my alias? Ra, the ancient Egyptian Sun God. And "cose" rhymes with overdose. I hope you all find this as entertaining, as i found this thread to be.
