Anyone here a David Lynch fan? My girlfriend and I just finished his movie "Lost Highway", which was really damn good. We've also watched his TV show "Twin Peaks" and his movie "Blue Velvet" and "Fire Walk With Me" together. On my own time, I've watched "Elephant Man", Rabbits, and "Eraserhead". Anyone else like this guy's work? I think he's the preeminent American surrealist alive today.
If you like dreamy neo-noir stuff, I'd definitely suggest taking a look. Twin Peaks is available on Netflix and is a landmark in modern television. While not successful during its original run, the show has gone on to inspire other television shows like "The X-Files" and its successors. Really great show with memorable characters.

So I'mma settle something for everyone but the one guy who is dimly aware of what CK2 is.
Crusader Kings 2 is a grand strategy game by Paradox Interactive, focused on the Middle Ages in Europe (and India with the inclusion of Rajas of India). The game pits you in control of a feudal dynastic family and charges you to simply survive the political landscape. Whether that it is to maintain your rank or to ascend to the status of Emperor of the given land(s).
And an option of the game is to name character's born to your house. So long as they're born in your court. Whether it be yours or a unlanded son siring a child while they're at court.
This often leads to me replacing the culturally correct given names to wild and irrelevant names for humor's sake. So far I've been bidding my time with giving people pony names, or offensive names. But I'm always looking to expand my repertoire. Which is why I'm turning to the forum here: if you'd let me I'll name a character after your username and (if I remember) give a break down of that character's life as I witness it.
This may no doubt turn into a lot of broken dreams and dark humor as the game no doubt spins into the madness it evolves into.
Currently I'm running a game as the Tulunids of Egypt from the Old Gods start date (867 AD). I'm something like eighty years away from the new millennium. Provided this dynasty doesn't crash and burn I should be able to set loose a line of PF2 users who'v volunteered their usernames to no doubt later see murdered by one of their brothers. That is if the whole thing doesn't implode on me and the Tulunid's already wild decadence doesn't cripple the kingdom before I can form the Empire of Abyssinia.
