Here is my story:

"O Ilusionista" means "The Illusionist" in Portuguese (as everyone should know, I'm Brazilian).

This nickname I invented when I was 12 as a pseudonym for my works. I am (or was, rather, since I do not write anymore) poet since that age. I got to be part of a book of poetry, which was released I think in 1995/1996 and I was part of the Brazilian Virtual Academy of Letters during a time.

At the launch of this book, there was a contest to vote on which was the best poem and I ended up winning, with the poem called "Inspiration, Dissertation, Incoherence and Madness in 10 parts", of which I am very proud even today :)

I can't translate it because it won't make much sense in english and I would need to rewrite it - thus, my english is not good for that. The only part that could make some sense is this one:

Quote
V - Blood Drops
The blood that flows in us now
Once dripped on the white marble
Existing in my imposing sky,
Divine by itself and by color
From liquid wicking surface
Rocky of my several teeth.
My lukewarm tongue bane my poison
Emanated from the pores of my skin
That reflects the light radiated from my eyes
Attentive to the stardom of fierce freedom
By the rivers of red blood cells and globules
The blood that bleeds from my chest.

I chose this nickname because I liked to play with words, not only with the meaning but with metrics and the visual form of the text, making "illusions" with them. Give a discount, I was 12 years old, lol.

When i signed ScruffyDragon Productions (the old web, not the recent crappy web) my really username was Max007, i thought it's fit cool name that my dad came out of his idea, took code the double "0" & "7" from James Bond franchise.

The reason i got a new username and account for this forum was because someone banned me on my old account for thinking i'm a spambot.  :-w

Hmm i've never had a chance to play that game. Lol kinda looks like roller coaster tycoon for PC. Lol

It's a racing game. At the time I loved hot wheels and roller coasters and stuff like that so I thought the game was freaking amazing. (this was around...97 or 98)

I sucked butt at it though, could never get over a loop or corkscrew without crashing.

Nice topic and great dialogue. Well, my favorite character is the protagonist from Shenmue. My username is a derivative of his name, Ryo Hazuki.

My name is a combination of different things that I like such as electricity, computers, digital media, electronic music & comics. I sometimes spell my name with a zero instead of an O.

A Soulfly's song title, I was younger when I've chosen it but then I kept it because it was my first choice as internet alias.

I-skorp-I  I thought it was a zodiac thing.

I honestly thought that Electro from Marvel was your favorite villain and that's why you used that name. Lol #TheMoreYouKnow  :D

Thank you for the question. It's a 1999 release on Dreamcast, that was a forerunner to the games that use QTE (Quick Time Events) events today. I've not played the Yakuza series but they are made by the same company, hence the similar look. Here's a video for those interested in this classic: You are not allowed to view links. <a href="http://www.infinitymugenteam.com/Forum_345/index.php?PHPSESSID=e06ddf0955fe893c9c2ecc27e30f9562&amp;action=register">Register</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.infinitymugenteam.com/Forum_345/index.php?PHPSESSID=e06ddf0955fe893c9c2ecc27e30f9562&amp;action=login">Login</a>

I was a big fan of the all-too-short-lived Amalgam Universe, and Nightdevil was my idea for an amalgamation of Nightwing and Daredevil.  Matt Grayson was a trapeze artist like his parents, but they wanted him to also become a doctor or lawyer, given the decline of traveling circuses.  During one performance, Grayson caught criminals attempting an extortion scheme pouring chemicals on the trapeze ropes, and they threw the chemicals in his face, blinding him.  His parents were killed when their trapeze wires broke, and the crooks thought the now-blind Grayson would no longer be able to identify them.

However, Grayson was taken in by the enigmatic Bat, blind from birth who had also lost his family to crime.  Under Bat's training, Grayson not only became a top lawyer, but the scourge of crime, Nightdevil, facing off against such foes as The Big Question, Deadeye, and Lady Elektra!
