I always think it's interesting to hear where or how people got their nicknames. So please share where you got yours. Rayden dates back to 1996, and comes from Mortal Kombat Trilogy. He was the first character I finished the game with. (Raiden was spelled as Rayden in that game, and in the movies as well, but let's forget those ever happend..) Though it wasn't untill 2000 that I actually started using the name. I had just gotten internet, and the very first online game I played was Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption. When creating a character, I went for Lord Rayden. Had some of the best RP experiences in that game. The name stuck, and I've used it for games, forums and as callsign during the 7 years I played airsoft. The only exception was during 2002-2003, when I was working as moderator on the Neocron forums. All mods had to use an alias, and pick a name from Norse mythology. I ended up using Forseti, the god of justice. I still use that name from time to time when rolling alts, or if Rayden is already taken.
