Request a Nickname!

Post by Feweh » 20 Jan 2016, 12:08

Surprisingly a lot of people actually want a nickname, they just cant come up with one themselves or are waiting for players to give them one.

So heres a simple quick way for the Community to give you a nickname. You dont have to use the nickname of course, but maybe someone will give you a unique one. Anyone can comment or suggest a nickname... just keep it civil and within forum rules.

Quick Format. (Feel free to use your own)

IN-Game Character Name:
Favored Role/Position:
Favored Weapon:
Character Description:
Unique Character Abilities:

Try to keep nicknames between 1-5 letters.

Brief Character Description: Ray was always a bit of an idiot and never outgrew his teenage years. Doesn't willingly take the lead, but very reliable as a right hand man.
Unique Abilities: Shouldn't be considered unique but Roswell follows orders better than most I see around here.

Ingame Character name: Tyler Borealis
Favored Role/Position: Engineer
Favored Weapon: Shotgun (Esploding praetorians, mang.)
Character description: A cocky man with auburn hair. He lets his mind be known and challenges all orders he feels are completely retarded. He presumably is missing an eye from an electrical cord snapping and taking it out with a severe shock.
Unique Character Abilities: Given enough materials and time, he is surprisingly quick in setting up defenses, including electrified grilles. He is even proficient in setting up the supermatter, but he has much to learn.

IMO nicknames are earned, not given arbitrarily, and the ones given out randomly like this tend to be awful.

IN-Game Character Name: Fridrich Austermann
Favored Role/Position: CMO, Doctor, Researcher
Favored Weapon: Anesthetic injector
Character Description: Crazy German doctor. Abrasive and with a aggressive demeanor his redeeming feature is efficiency and competence (at least I hope people think this about him!). He's usually looking for stupid ways to be a more effective doctor. Some examples used previously are peridaxon and tricordrazine syringe guns, chem sprayers loaded with sterilizine and bicardine to administer first aid to an entire shuttle of marines in one go, and replacing broken limbs with mechanical ones because they can't be broken again and it's faster than the bone surgery.
Unique Character Abilities: Quick at surgery, clean freak, highly effective

How about "Tourniquet"? Save the life, kill the limb. Sort of balances with that decision-making thing.

Because I'm not witty. But eh, the point of the thread is to get others do it, so I don't see the point of arguing over it.

IN-Game Character Name: Darius Ico
Favored Role/Position: CO - SL
