20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 7 – The Reason Behind My Blog’s Name
I am on a roll! (I am using self-praise to motivate myself! At the moment, it is working!)
Day 7 – The Reason Behind My Blog’s Name
Well, hopefully the name “Effraeti’s RP” is somewhat self-explanatory, but then I would have no post. heh
Effraeti is my main, and my WoW namesake. Even when I changed my main to my Disc Priest (Sifaol) for a time, everyone still referred to me as Effy. Apparently, I am stuck with it. But it could be worse – I could have named her Shamwow or Shampon or some other ridiculous Shaman name.
I like being Effy.
I would probably still be Rosaelyn to everyone I knew in-game if I had stuck with my Druid, instead of insisting on buying Burning Crusade and becoming a Draenei.
Then, this would be Rosaelyn’s RP instead…
Effraeti’s name, if you have not seen her Character page, is from Ifrit or Efreet which is a fiery demon or Djinn of Arabic and Islamic origin. To make it more unique and more me, I added the “ae” which is in a vast majority of my character names. At least the female characters.
Little did I know at the time how ironic her name was. I just thought Draenei looked cool – and she has a tail! I knew none of the lore, and how Draenei are outcasts of a race that became demonic.
As for the “RP” part, my biggest reason for starting my blog was my interest in creating some place to write stories. I was newly enamored with the idea of playing on an RP server and creating backgrounds and scenarios for the characters. As it turns out, my blog is more of a catch-all for all of my thoughts on WoW and other things.
But even though my troupe has relocated to Elune, I am still planning to write more stories. Because who says that different servers cannot parallel times? Perhaps Effy really exists on both – separate outcomes in different circumstances. (Okie, perhaps I have been hitting the lore a lil hard…)
I actually have a story idea that is currently rattling around in my head, begging for an outlet.
A pre-teaser to my story teaser: I will be publishing a quick post when I get home regarding it.
