Well, if that is your aim then your are succeding! Tongue  I can presume and hope that if you hang around the UQM for much longer you'll start talking like a normal hunam.

And that, also, is why Kaelos talks in the third person, because it's been a running joke since that day that he has no personal pronouns since he lost his i. That, and it seems to annoy certain people, always a plus.

Normal? Kaelos? Nevar happening, nevernever. Except the odd occasion where he is too tired to remember, but it /is/ a fairly deeply engrained habit, so not likely to happen Azn

Gaeamil is from EverQuest.  When I create names, I use a random generator which, in this case, gave me something like "Gaeolo", and Gaeamil came to mind.  He was a great Bard in that game (only about level 12 though).

My nick has not a mysterious origin because this is a forum for a space game. Too bad people confuse me with Galactus. He's gone, just accept it!

No more asking about Galactus.

Is that a bit like asking the Orz about the Androsynth?

Scum? I don't think so. "Master" is more like it.

Oh well. I just wandered around and a saw a post of his, posted this month. So he will probably see himself here. But I guess he won't get mad at me.

Feel free to ask more.

My initials (two letter names), reversed to get zero hits on Google and to avoid forming the word "resha", which means evil (noun).

I first considered separating the two letters, but that made the nickname too long for traditional IRC servers.

I've used quite a few other nicknames before, but I'm making this my universal one.

 My nickname actually comes from the Mycon. In the game, when you talk to the Mycon[I'm sure you know this already anyway], they have a bunch of little tendrils that wiggle around constantly. These tendrils wiggle in a motion that makes it seem like the Mycon is dancing to the music. Mycon are fungus[sort of], and they dance, hence the name Dancing Fungus.
