It was the name of my Blood Elf priest in World of Warcraft. Haven't played WoW since May though. Even then I was playing on my Night Elf priest.

Mine is Halo related, Bungie had a website where you input your real name and your current nickname and it would give you a rank & a name if you were an Elite in the Covenant.

Rank: Gold (oh yeah!)
Name: Elor Nocudee (no-ku-dee)

cool huh? (cant find the site though)

Galdun was the name of a D&D character I had when I was ridiculously young.  It's sorta been my archetypal fantasy name ever since and always pops into my head when RPG gaming is involved.  Seemed like a natural choice, albeit slightly embarrassing.

Posted 06 January 2011 - 10:41 AM

Mine is based on a great Roman that lived about 2200 years ago : Scipio Aemilianus (full name and titles : Publius Cornelius Scipio Aemilianus Africanus Minor Numantinus). Back in the days, hotmail would accept only 15 characters, hence scipio_aemilius@ or, much simpler, Scipio Aemilius for forum prupose.

The reason why I prefered him over other romans is this man was not only a great statesman and general, he was also very versed in intellectual / cultural stuff : amongst his followers there was the comic writer Terentius, the philosopher Panaetius and the historian Polybius.

The greatest mark of his humanity, I think, happened the day he took Carthage and was ordered to destroy it, in short the day of his greatest glory. While the city was plundered and put to flame, he couldn't help but think this fate could also happen to his beloved country, and he wept.

If anyone wants more info on this great man, and my role-model : http://en.wikipedia....ipio_Aemilianus

If there is a problem with one of my wrappers, please let me know by posting on the game thread AND by sending me a pm.
If there are no problems, then a little "Thank you!" is always heart-warming! ;)

I do street magic. When I started, David Blaine had just done his levitation trick on his Street Magic special and that became the must learn trick for many magicians. I finally learned a levitation effect and thus this name, which I use often, was born.

Icanlevitate because, well, I can. :-)
