    where does your avatar come from?

    I'll start this thread by explaining my avatar history and why I chose this avatar recently.

    my very first avatar was the illuminati diamond from dan brown. however, I changed that when the current avatar rules became active because it was oversized. I changed to Mr Smith from the matrix. then, a few months before the new year, I wanted to create a Star Wars style Batman logo, but I didn't think it worked out that well.

    then, right after i returned from holiday, I got the most wondruous news from my brother. his girlfriend was pregnant and they would have a baby in September of this year. I had to keep quiet for a time because they needed to take care of some things before they could break the news to other people. they recently started spreading the news, and as a part of this, I changed my avatar to one of the most famous television uncles in Belgium: Nonkel Bob (Uncle Bob), to celebrate that i'll be an uncle before the year ends.

    so, what's the story behind your avatar?
    Because of the high frequency of negativity and overall "my class/race/faction sucks" (both for IRL and ingame issues) across all boards, I have reverted to primarily lurking and only posting when I need help. I'm hoping this can be fixed, but if I don't do this, I will likely end up depressed and disgusted with humanity as a whole.

    I often post from my mobile device, typos in my posts are 99% likely to be because of that.
    All I would ever want and need is a hug.

    The evil, serial killing psychopath from Monster, Johan Liebert.

    There's not really much of a story behind it. I just find his psyche fascinating.

    Posters without sigs and avatars I think aren't taken as seriously. So after my 5th post or so I Googled "Dwarf Warrior"

    I swear I'll get a personal one eventually.

    I found mine on a avatar dump site years ago.

    I don't really know why I became so enamored with moogles, but I did. In FF9, they're really blunt and honest. In FF12, they're more of an entire race, instead of a few random ones hanging out in places. And they're engineers, as well as Montblanc leading the Hunt Club.

    I change my avatars every couple of weeks depending on my current mental state (which is never stable for long). The current one is a cool Deviant art i found recently, it reminded me how much i like this band.

    My most recent one is from an image I found on deviantart when searching for "elements". Liked the look of what he had, changed a few colors on a couple of them, and put them in a circle pattern as the "logo" for my homebrew Pathfinder campaign. Same with my sig, only put in a line so they could be used as a sig here.

    From left to right, it goes Fire, Water, Air, Earth, Life, Death, Light, Shadow. It's the elements for my campaign world (instead of the typical fire, water, earth, air).

    Mine comes from Michigan J. Frog, then I saw the Murloc that looked like him and I saw the new deathwing murloc and thought "I wonder what he would look like if he had a top hat.....So I did a horrible photoshop and this is what came out of it.

    Riddle me this Batman.
    We stopped searching for monsters under our beds when we realized that they were inside us.

    Tell me something, my friend. You ever dance with the devil in the pale moonlight?

    Vossler from FFXII in game art. It's not the most original thing in the world but I absolutely loved the character and the art style from the game so here we are. As for the picture in the sig... no explanation needed, eh?

    Alona (MVP) from the WoW forums drew this picture of my blood elf mage. I thought it was beautiful.

    It's an image of Perrin Aybara from the "Wheel of Time" series forging the hammer Mah'alleinir.

    Tier gear should be available during the leveling process. I don't want to have to mingle with these eltitist jerks in LFR to get gear as it is. I pay a sub fee, I shouldn't have to do LFR to get raid gear, much less Flex or Normal.

    This part in particular; note it is rather violent.
