There was (and is still) an excellent puzzle game for the Nintendo DS out when I found RuneScape, and in it you basically used the touch screen to line up blocks in columns/rows of 3+ and you launched them out of the "planet" you were on. Each planet had different gravity and block-dropping rates. One of the "planets" was called Hevendor, and literally looked like a black hole mixed with a solar flare. The inhabitants were 7 sages who pretty much looked like this (Lower left corner): Posted Image.



Hevendor wasn't really enough for me, so I just tacked on Guy at the end.

And that is the way my name came to be, and tbh this is the first time anyone I don't know IRL I've explained it to ^^;

My name has a relativly long history :|

When I first started doing internet stuff, I had a stupid username for everything. (tnt87) Initials and year born.

One day, I realized how simple that name is, and decided to make a new name. I had a friend IRL who made a msn account called puzzledmind, and I liked the ring of it, so for about a week, I thought about what I would call myself.

Finally, I came up with misplaceditems. One day in school, I found a link to runescape on the computer(august of 2001), so I try to make an account.

Misplaceditems is too long, so I just put misplaced, and I played for about 10 mins and quit.

That summer, with the encouragement of some friends, I made a new account. Since misplaceditems is too long, and misplaced was taken, I was misplaced! So, thus came misplacedme.

So, for the past 5-6 years, i've been misplacedme to most runescape people, and misplaceditems has become my company name when I sell stuff like movie posters.

the story about my name is very short:

I wanted to start playing as soon as possible so i chose my rl name and the number after was suggested because my name was already taken.

Later I found out that 777 is a perfect number(think it has something to do with Bible) \<img src=/' />




Not exactly the bible.. close call.

Its way more related to the GBOK. The Green Book of Knowledge :)

Its the Ooc's bible.



My story is the lamest of them all. When runescape came out I was a big fan of Age of empire (1) and made up a nikname I used everywhere. (Nick being Age Of Empire + my adress
Quest cape obtained at combat level 83, march 07.

I'm really ashamed of my name. I created this account somewhere in 2001... when I was 13 years old. My err, well... nickname in that time was Bunkie... so I made Lord Bunkie. :?



JAGEX PLEASE LET ME CHANGE IT :cry:

Well, Muscular Ape is actually my 5th account...



I was walking around on my pure and I thought to myself of a goal that I am still working on today. I wanted to make an account that one day would look awesome as it appeared on the highscores and also at the same time make people laugh. I've been successful in one part so far - I get a lot of positive comments about my name :)



Somehow, I don't know how, Muscular Ape came to my head ^_^ I wouldn't change it if I could! :o

Wow, this topic is REALLY taking off.



Some great stories, guys.



And, for those who actually care, my account was from RSC.



I'm lucky I remembered the password for it, but I've played it every summer since 2002-ish. Sadly, i've only gotten to 62 cb, and it's despairing.



Hehe, I'm still laughing at how simple some of the names are.

Don't you know the first rule of MMO's? Anyone higher level than you has no life, and anyone lower than you is a noob.

Morden is where I used to live, I was watching cricket at the time that I made the acc and Raul Dravid was playing. Mordendravid had a nice ring to it, and thus was the account born.

Well, I'll start with the "poepaap" part.

At school, I had a kipling eraser in the shape of a little monkey. By using it so much, the head had completely dissapeared. I had made a cut in the middle it, when I was bored during class. When my friend saw it, he suddenly said "poepaap"...Wich means as much as "behind monkey" :XD:

From that point on we'd say poepaap at the most random moments, just for fun.

So when I picked my rs name, I immedialty thought of "poepaap" Then I added "rich" (from Richard-ard, Rcihard being my name) because I thought that sounded good.

This is my history:

I like names that are original, and they are the best when there's no number behind it.

But, before I started playing rRunescape I played a game called S.O.F (soldiers of forture 1) on-line.

Our clan was called R'Dam (we ruled) shortcut for Real Damage Always Master.

And ofcourse Rdam. So I was Robert Rdam obviously, I chose it and now I still use it. :D <3: I <3: my name

Keep it going, guys, this one topic has gotten quite a few posts now!



Nice to see there are some other avid gamers out there, too, that aren't TOTALLY sucked up by RS. Remember, they make great games on the consoles too, but allocate them for cool-down, 'alone' time, for when you are sick of the Yew bots stealing the tree out from under you.
