  • Have you ever thought with your character's name?

    Mainly talking about here if you've ever thought of your own name (especially if you've said or written down) and put the name your character uses in instead of your legal/birth/human name. Also if you've heard someone say it in real life (such as at a fan fest) and not had to think about it meaning you.

    Also note if your character's name is your nickname, or a name you use everywhere else online.

    The title asks one question, but your post asks another.

    In regard to the post, no.

    In regard to the title, I occasionally refer to myself as Murphie (or Murphy) but only in the context of the game, or forum I use the name on. Like "get it together, Murphie" when I'm messing up a fight or something.

      Actually, no, I haven't. Even with the people around that play, we still refer to each other by their real names. It's kinda off-putting to call me "Lilith" to my face, as opposed to just calling me that on a forum or in game. Of course, the majority of the posters here aren't anywhere near Japan, nor do any of you have my number, so conversations beyond here or in game are kinda not much of a worry.

      As for when I'm in game, yar, I'm Lilith. That's me, that's who I am. Except when I'm Vicviper or one of my other mules.

        Exactly. Maybe if I interacted with FFXI people outside of the context of the game or the forum. But I really don't.

              I go back Dak in different games, but I've never referred to myself as Dak outside of a game. I don't even think my own name in-game or out.

                  Heh funny story. I had 2 roomates, one played the game, zhou, the other hated the game, we'll call him arsehat. One night I was in the living room playing and arsehat is watching a movie. Z was inhis room playing the game with me. We were on our way to the dunes, when I lost track of him. So i yelled out; "Hey Z where are you?" Arsehat said....he's in his room you Dummy.

                  The reason why i mention this is because I explained to arsehat that I asked where Z was not where Shane was....so meh.

                  But back to the post, me and my roomy refer to each other in character name when we talk about the game, but out in the real world we try not to use them in public.

                    Re: Have you ever thought with your character's name?

                    Not this character name. I have a vague recollection of being called "Amp" at some point, but I think that's just a trick of memory, because I can't think of anyone who would call me that. My first character name, tons and tons, but only because it's what I go by elsewhere. Not related to the game at all.

                    And I've never accidentally written any other name down than whatever one was appropriate at the time.

                      Allthough I never use Galen as my name in RL, I do on many occasions find myself talking to Galen, many a time have I said "come on galen, you can do this" I'm not sure if im saying it to my screen or to myself lol.
                      I have a friend in my linkshell and we talk in RL sending txt messages to each other still I txt him with Draz instead of his name.

                        On several occasions I've had people call me Fliegar in real life. Although I enver refer to myself as my game name unless it fits the context, or I'm talking in a weird type of third-person.

                          I don't have alias confusion. To most people on the webs, I'm just the Yellow Mage. My name in-game is basically a Tarutaru construction that is very loosely based on my real name.

                              My character name is my online alias, so yes. I have friends irl who i met online that even though I've known them for years, call me Illuen =D.
