Vasili_Tyorkin is a fictional character from a WW2 poem by Aleksandr Tvardovsky. But I am thinking of changing it to Ivan Chonkin, as he fits my playing style better.

Munk is a shortened version of my real first name. Munkh in Mongolian means 'eternal' or 'everlasting.'
You might see me playing with Americanized variations such as [-I-]Munky, [-I-]Munkie, [-I-]Munkster.

Sometimes, but rarely, I use [-I-]Polkadot which refers to the polka dot jersey of the Tour de France. I used to bike a lot. My small, light build (5' 4" and 125 lbs) allows me to climb with steep hills relatively easily, often outclimbing stronger, experienced bikers. Plus, climbing huge mountains and dropping everyone else like rocks is just badass.

Oddly enough this nick is from my dad. Its what he used back in the Quake 1 days. He stopped playing games because his job took up to much of his time (obviously in the IT filed, in case you wondered :p). When I started playing games, he suggested it to me. I haven't used any other nick in years.
I am DEFINITELY making my son carry on the Pyros777 legacy. lol sounds like you have an awesome dad.

I created my name back when I was playing Ultima VIII. The titan of fire is named Pyros. The 777 is not "your lucky day", "jackpot", or "one greater than 666" like some people tend to mention. No, its just that I used this name to sign up on yahoo, and Pyros was taken, Pyros7 was taken, Pyros77 was taken, until finally Pyros777 was free. I took it, played some TFC with it, and it stuck ever since then. Wow, my online alias is almost 10 years old. :eek:

Started as 'Talhallen' years ago online, someone made a typo and it came out 'Takhakken', and the 'Tak' part stuck instead of 'Tal'. This was uh...98? 99? Whatever the year EverQuest came out was?

a combination of (SiC) and Disasterpiece, 2 songs by slipknot :p SiC-Disaster ( since the entire word wouldnt fit ;))
also it has been cut down to SiC when i was in a clan, because the nick would fit even less.

Medal of Honor was my first online game.
People who played that must remember the German taunt

"Das war Drecksarbeit"

So i picked up the name Drecks. And when i had a kill I could
shout "Das war Drecksarbeit" Like that was the work of Drecks.
While in fact Dreck means dirt or trash.

Grim_Reaper was given to me by my peers in the game Soldiers of Fortune 2. I didn't even know what it meant untill i looked it up and then decided to change my nick into that.

My previous nick was Ash, like burned stuff, but people kept thinking it was that pokemon character so i was glad people gave me a new nick ^^

radix - it's a nick wich I'm using it since around '93-'94 when the irc was just at the beginings. (linux 0.* + lynx + irc : text mode ftw!)

for a period of time I used e><humator as nick in ut2k4. radix was just too boring for the ut gameplay :)
