Ice Bar / Re: Names of our Warriors
« Last post by Lupineuk on November 22, 2017, 05:16:29 PM »
As a kid was very much into sealife especially dolphins and other toothed whales (well suppose as I then went onto make a degree of it I can't say it was just a childish thing) this meant when it came time to get an email account and usernames I went with OrcaUK (Orca Orcinus is a killer whale waaay more masculine than saying I like dolphins :P ).

When it came time to make secondary accounts or if my first choice was taken (I got the name in most places before Command and Conquer had vehicles called it so then suddenly got competition) I wasn't sure what to take but then saw a documentary describing orcas as the wolves of the sea so I became LupineUK for things such as gaming.

Not got any other accounts on MWO but just didn't want same email and username though I didn't think  to capitalise UK for the user name but ah well.

Well, I pick mine because it has that impact on people who know mythology and for my origins. He was a pagan God so GB have some sort of pagan sun wheel in logo  :) so it fits great  :D.

Dazhbog is Slavic god of Sun and fire, son of Svarog and chief god of Serbs. He was also considered and as the ancestor of all Slavs because at this time it was rare for grandson/granddaughter to meet grandpa. He was imagined as a man wearing either wolf or bear fur who becomes older at winter and young at summer.

His totem animal was a wolf, therefore wolf was a sacred animal and killing it was considered great sin. Wolves were considered as messengers of Dazhbog, while he himself could shift into a white wolf. There was a belief that each winter he is visiting people's homes and gifting gold to good ones. That belief passed into Christianity, especially in Serbia, and the visitor was called Položajnik.

During Christianization, his cult was exchanged with the cult of Saint Sava, while Dažbog became lame Daba - the most powerful demon in Hell. Reasons why he was demonized are various, possibly because his cult was the strongest in Serbia or because he was considered also as the god of Nav - Slavic underworld and world of dead.

Greetings, Clan Ghost Bear. I am Freelancer Wolfkyri.

I am new to MechWarrior Online. Previously, I played MechWarrior 4 Mercenaries. I thoroughly enjoyed the universe depicted, and recently sought to get back into it. Though I do not know much about the universe as of now, I am interested in RP and serious, teamwork oriented, competitive game play.

I am looking for a serious competitive unit to learn from. I have read through the Clan Ghost Bear International Code of Conduct, and I intend to adhere to it while I am here. I understand and respect the concept of chain of command, though I have no intentions of remaining at a low rank should I be allowed, and so choose, to join. I fully understand that words alone mean little, and that I will need to prove myself if I am to progress.

I also would like to note a few role-play elements of myself. I am not inherently for or against the IS or Clans. My ideologies are my own, but Clan Ghost Bear seems to be close to my own ideologies, so I have come here first. I intend to make contact with other Clans and Inner Sphere units. At the simplest level, I am here seeking information on the competitive field, and to gain a better understanding of Clan Ghost Bear's culture and pilots. At the highest, I hope to find a unit close to my own ideologies to join, so I can help bring about a better world, both in and out of the Inner Sphere.

-Wolfkyri

Greetings Ghost Bears...

I've been a lover of the whole Mech Warrior mythos since I first came across the games back in 1992.  I've even read a few of the books.  I really became a fan of Clan Ghost Bear when the game "Ghost Bear's Legacy" expansion pack came out.  Anyhow, I hope to continue on my MWO path (recently started playing) with CGBI as a sibkin or even a bondsman!!

Also, I wanted to add, in retrospect, that I'm a little into the RP side of it, so will speak and act accordingly as such on TS3 and in game, as to me it's fun to "be someone else".

Respectfully,
Sigvaldr, aka Eaglestrike73
