    By accident - i thought you were supposed to type in your REAL name in that box. Otherwise my name would have been:

    Guest

    I actually made up this nick about a year ago, after I first got Thief and I've been using it on ICQ ever since. I also created a superhero called 'KLepto-maN', fully equipped with the 'Kleptobile' (stole the Batmobile and did a cheap paintjob), a blue/purple suit with the letter K on it and a real big bag.
    Just check my ICQ info... there's a pic.

    A couple of weeks ago I read a fanfic called Kleptomaniac: TNSBP (maybe you've heard of it...) which is what drew me to this forum.

    Regardless of its meaning, I thought the earthy, unwieldy, medieval/Saxon feel of 'Grundbegriff' would do in fantasy circles. Sounds like some sort of fierce, rusty weapon from long ago, or perhaps a hybrid lion with its flight-feathers clipped.

    Come to think of it, those descriptions also fit the art theory book....

    Ahh, now I know! Cool choice of names. But which part of (Principles of Art History) is Grundbegriff?

    I dun care that this is an old post.. I'm still gonna continue with it..

    I like Dodge Vipers. Specifically, dark colored ones. Multiple meanings.... I also like Thief: The DARK Project. :-) My email address goes along with this trend: DViper01@juno.com The 01 stands for my HS graduating year (yes, I'm still in high school... but I graduate this June!)

    Vipers rock. You haven't lived until you've driven one.

    I haven't lived.

    But I parked my car up real close to one once and spent like... 15 minutes just circling the thing. I wanted to touch it, but was afraid the alarm would go off ;-). It was the original blue with white stripes, not that new gray-metallic colored one, but of course... all Vipers are nice.

    However, I couldn't find the handle to open the door. I heard they were voice activated. Then again, it could be that little button in the window right above it. [It's the little things I still don't know about Vipers that intrigue me... someone enlighten me!!]

    There's my story. I'll submit to the shadows now.

    Guest

    Erm, well, I didn't come up with my own nick actually. I assume most of you have seen Monty Python & Holy Grail. Well, my real name is Tim and some of my strange friends that share my twisted sense of humour started calling me 'Tim the Enchanter' after the character played by John Cleese. It sort of stuck and got reduced to enchanter. I suppose it fits my personality well enough, although I know others use it on the 'net. By the way, not to rock the "My fantasy author is better than yours" boat, but... N. How in the world can you say that Ro. Jordan is a bad writer? He's got to be one of the best fantasy writers since Tolkien, in my opinion. His characters are interesting (as you said) and believable and he is very good at interweaving plots. I've found his style very similar to Tolkien's in many ways, and I would be surprised to find anyone here who would say that Tolkien sucked. (Heresy!) Jordan uses female characters much more than Tolkien did. Yes, they can get annoying at times, especially with all the in-fighting and bickering between them, but hey, I've got to admit (don't shoot me all at once, ladies) that it adds an element of realism to the stories. Just a general observation by the way. (Not meant to be a blanket statement). Sigh. I guess that the upshot is that fantasy tends to be a very personal thing and different authors speak to different people. Jordan can be hard to get into for some, but I don't know of many who have that regret it. I know this is probably a logical fallacy, but I doubt Jordan would be so popular if his stuff was trash...

    Anyone ever noticed these skulls lying around in T1 and T2? Sometimes there are as well golden bones
    Note: I did not choose my name after playing "Seeds of doubt", although the Soultaker is a golden skull. I owned the name before knowing this

    Jokingly named after a prolific FM author of the same name.

    Ugly thing. So we named our band after it 'The Gonchong Extremes'. And it sorta stuck here.

    Guest

    Well....since this thread has resurfaced, I might as well add my own story to it.

    I deal in silly words. I love learning new, silly sounding words, which is why I took German at GCSE and plan to take it at A-Level and then at University level. Dutch is an extremely fertile ground for silly sounding words, which has also spawned Afrikaans, an even sillier version of Dutch. Now, I used to live in Botswana, which is just north of South Africa, and when I was there I came across on a daily basis the word for 'tangerine'- that being Naartjie. Since it was the best word I knew at the time of registering, I chose it, and had been using Naartjie as my TFC name beforehand.

    Anyway, for those who are interested, here is Naartjie's [b]All time top-ten silly sounding German words and phrases:[/i]


    Wundstarrkrampf - lockjaw or tetanus
    Heinzelmaenchen- garden gnomes
    Augenschmerzen - sore eyes
    Schockoladebrustwarzeklemmefabriksarbeiter- Chocolate flavoured nipple clamp factory worker
    Knueppelhageldick - cudgel thick as hail
    Wasserspeier- Gargoyle
    Luftkissenboot- Hovercraft
    Knoblauch- Garlic
    Achtung! Die Heinzelmaenchen Sturmabteilungen sind mit Bananenspaerbuche und Stollenbach bewaffen, und machen sie eine Flugzeugentfuehrung auf!- Oh no! The garden gnomes are armed with banana shaped piggy banks and pre-stressed concrete, and are hijacking a plane!
    Ach...die Heinzelmaenchen sind funktionsfaehig, weil sie Wundstarrkrampf haben...Ah...the garden gnomes are malfunctioning because they've got lockjaw...

    *Not all this is correct German

    Those are some great words and phrases, Naartjie. Particularly the ones about the garden gnomes (LOL). These may not be funny sounding, but the translations are. (From the PS game medal of honor in the "conversational German for the American soldier")
    Verzheiung, (Sp?) aber sie haben ihre grenate vergessen (excuse me, but you forgot your grenade.) and (while being attacked by vicious Dobermans) Der Amerikaner hat hundekuchen in der tasche. (The American has dog biscuits in his pocket.)

    Just a little comment:
    "funktionsfaehig" (does the "ä" work here?) means not "malfunctioning". It's exactly the opposite

    And I don't see why those words sound silly - maybe you pronounce them the wrong way?

    Well, the way I pronounce it in English is "Naaht-jee", but I couldn't offer a phoenetics guide for Afrikaans...maybe TheCapedPillager can help you there...


    Golden Skull- thank you for the correction. My German teacher is an idiot, I will flame her and use all of those words at her in one go to piss her off

    And about the sound of the words...as a Briton they just sound really, really silly when you say them out loud, but no Germans I ever ask can understand why


    enchanter- LOL!

    forgive me if i'm wrong, but i believe the afrikaans pronunciation is:
    naar-khee
    with a rolled 'r'

    Sharga
    Guest

    Sharga is the name of a race from a really sweet game called Stonekeep made by Interplay. It's mideval and the Sharga's are one of the biggest forms of comical relief in the game (besides those funny faries and their songs) I consider myself a funney guy and for some reason I really liked the name (plus it's original and easy to remember). They are green, goblin-like creatures. Some are nice, some aren't so nice, all are funney.

    Theyz talkz lik'a dis yo' see? Yousa gots a big ting commin' if ya mez wif me!

    Sharga quote: "Yousa in me home! Yousa go away nowz!"

    (I personally think they coppied jar-jar's voice from the Shargas and made it a little easier to understand and more high pitched.)
