Superhero Team Meem

Last seen from billroper

Actually, this is the third try (I kept changing the reason -- in part because I kept getting the same person in two conflicting roles) with the best results.

While filling this out, I was reminded of one of the things I've found the hardest over the years about playing RPGs: naming the characters. For some reason, I can come up with the idea for the character, figure out the stats (or manipulate the rolls into the slots for the stats I need) and do the rest of character generation, but coming up with names is difficult. I've used random generators, historically inspired names (Martin Luther was the first true cleric in a long time in one D&D game -- his followers, which didn't include the rest of the gaming party, became known as Lutherans), names taken by randomly opening a book and stealing (resulting in Solomon Hosea when the book in question was The Bible), and odd variants on my own name.

Perhaps its a good thing that my kid came with a name pre-installed, as did our most recent cat. I'll admit that I was able to choose an OK name for three of my cats, or at least OK at the time. Of course Cream Puff turned into a bruiser and Harry, the escape artists as a kitten, later couldn't escape a plastic bag without help. Oliver, on the other hand, remained a bit of the former orphan that inspired his name.
