Hi everyone. Encino here. It’s been a tradition for years to get their nickname given to them on the forums.
Now, I understand that some of you just give yourself nicknames or get them from friends, and that’s fine, this is just an optional tradition.
I got my nickname from a boomer player 6 years ago in 2017-ish. And with that I’ve had my personal behavior change and adopted the nickname “Encino Man” into my personal life, morphing my aesthetic taste into liking caveman and primal aesthetics, and I feel this is something you can’t get through nicknaming yourself. You miss out on something, I think.
And so, I’m bringing it here. It’s optional, you don’t have to take it, but remember that not every nickname is cool or flashy or cute. In fact, most of them are banter in some form or another.
Here’s the template:

Those are silly nicknames and I find them enjoyable. Not sure if I’ll use squirt though since 2 things come to mind. One being a midget/ short person or the other being. . . I’ve been exposed to the internet too long, doesn’t help my character is female.
