    My Monk's name means "To bear up" Seemed fitting.

    The four elements, like man alone, are weak. But together they form the strong fifth element: Boron.

    bodhidharma was also a bit of a madman, but he brought Zen/Chan budhism to China and his legend states that he meditated by staring at a wall for 9 years, he cut off his eyelids to prevent himself from falling asleep, and his legs grew back into his body until he basically just became a little glaring bearded egg man!

    Name: Samsãra

    Samsāra or Sangsāra (Sanskrit: संसार) (in Tibetan called "khorwa"),[1] literally meaning "continuous flow", is the repeating cycle of birth, life, death and rebirth (reincarnation) within Hinduism, Buddhism, Bön, Jainism, Yoga and Sikhism.

    According to the view of these Indian religions our current life is only one of many—stretching back before birth into past existences and reaching forward beyond death into future incarnations. During the course of each life the quality of the actions (karma) performed determine the future destiny of each person. The Buddha taught that there is no beginning or end to this cycle. The goal of Indian religions is to escape this process, the achievement of which is called moksha.

    In popular use, Samsara may refer to the world (in the sense of the various worldly activities which occupy ordinary human beings), the various sufferings thereof; or the unsettled and agitated mind through which reality is perceived.

    Samsara means "to flow on", to perpetually wander, to pass through states of existence.

    I thought about going with a Buddhist name, but since most of them aren't asian based but Sanskrit/Pali and Buddhist monks first precept is to avoid all forms of combat and harm, figured it wouldn't work out.

    So went kinda English Chinese with it

    Fwei

    it'll do! I like it, nice ring to it (:

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -CS Lewis

    Keggernaut and Pojo for mine
    A typical raid leader command would be something like "Yo Scrub, why don't you YOLO 1337 yards to the left because the boss's Swag is about to hit us in 3 seconds".

    heh, I went with 'Daruma' it's the japanese name for the same guy I thought Bodhidharma would be too long for a WoW name, guess I was wrong.
