Short story:

2 years ago I had a camp where everybody had a Buddy, the person you slept with inside your tent.

When I made a new Runescape the Buddy part sticked to me and since I wanted to be opposite of those Pures, I decided to be a Skiller.

Skillers are usually lvl 3 so Buddy + lvl 3 = Buddy lvl 3!



Some nice stories around here!

I remeber I wanted my name to have something like "sir" or "lord" in it. I decided to take "sir" and then I just pressed some random letters on my keyboard.

i chose my name because my favorite band/army of philosophers was The Chariot. I tried to get The Chariot and Chariot, but both were taken. So i stuck some Hard-X-Core 'Xs' around it, and voila! xchariotx

I chose e174 as my first account, because all I wanted to do was test this game. That was back in 2001. I played a little and got like 20 combat. Then I found out how to do Ernest the Chicken and since it gave 300gp as a reward I made lots of accounts and did the quest with all of them and then I showed off with my accounts all with 300gp :XD:

I even thought a little about changing over to some of those accounts, like I made names like Ice Queen, Biohazard, Darkened Eye and lots more... Noes! Level 20 is too much to lose just like that :wall:

Then I played a lot and thought many times of just starting over, but all the times I just thought it's too much to lose and the next time I think of it I just thought I was stupid, I mean it was so easy to get all that.

Last time I thought of starting over I thought of the previous times and then I just thought that in a year I'll be sorry for not starting over so I started playing with Venqeance. I know it's spelled wrong, but I simply can't remember a password of accounts made 6 years ago. But I like Venqeance <3:

I'm really bad at cooking, so I thought calling myself a chef would kinda be ironic. Pen stands for 'Penguin', which is my favourite animal. I'm a Penguin Chef!

Well my first account Depo-Provera has quite a funny story. I was making an account and I saw the top of a book next to my pc and it had Depo-Provera on it so I thought that it sounded unique so I used that.



Turns out my mum was studying contraceptives at the time (she's a nurse) and that Depo-Provera is a birth control pill :wall:.



That account got hacked and so I started my new one Spoonology, well thats was a joke name really, I got bored.

There were simply too many accounts with Jason in and I wanted something without numbers in.



I tried a few other naming styles but didn't want anything with 'leet' in so I went with 'Giant Torti' partially out of desire to not have a number in my name but also because, well tortoises are kinda cute.

I was 12 and obsessed with the Final Fantasy series. 'Aeon' from FF10. Queen , largely just chosen as I'm a girl. (I have a really old account called Gfs Princess alongside.) Looking back a good few years on, it isn't that bad a name, especially when it prompts conversations about Final Fantasy with random people I meet on slayer assignments. :P

My RS avatar is named after the lead character in a series of books I really enjoyed written by David Weber.



The series is called the Honor Harrington series (and currently comprises of 10 novels, plus spinoffs).



It was the first thing that popped into my head when I created this account 6-7 years ago.



To be honest, I wish I'd chosen something else as I'm fed up with people in the game assuming that it's my real-life surname. I constantly get stuff like "John... is that you?" sigh. I sometimes answer "Yes" and see how far I can carry the conversation before they realise lol.

When I made my RS name I don't really know what I was thinking lol



I just took some random stuff I liked at the time and made it into a name, potato is cause I like potato's and faafy is the name of this little dragon type lumpy creature on this show I used to watch when I made my account.
EDIT - Signature far exceeds our sig limits but since it's so colourful you can keep it.

Before the friends list came out players communicated by typing their private message in the regular chat but preceded by "tell [player name]". For example, "tell bob hey what's up?".



At one point I said something along the lines of "tell me later, I'm just about to go for dinner" and RuneScape said something like "there is no user me". So I then registered that name and got a flood of messages from people using the tell system.



IIRC Moderator registered the name 'you' for a similar reason.

I had a certain fascination for the symbol, irrational number and mathematical constant Pi (pronounced "Pie" if you didn't know) so I named my Runescape character after it.



I don't regret that decision. Anyway any person who is 12 should know about that number.
