Thanks for the read, Mr. Bowers.I have never leveled alchemy past 100 nor do I roleplay, but these articles are always a good read because they help people like me understand how deep it really goes when you're mining for lore :)

You're welcome Katakotia. :) Also, please, call me David. Mr. Bowers is what I ask my Chinese primary school students to call me. I make a rhyme out of it, teaching them various English words:Flowers, Hours, Showers, Towers... Super Powers -- Mister Bowers!Back on topic, though, there's a name issue I forgot to mention in the article: It seems particularly appropriate somehow that an alchemist character should refer to himself or herself as Dr. So-and-so. So if I have an alchemist rogue named Deathshaker, I could say, "Greetings! My name is Doctor Deathshaker!" It could make one of those cheesy fantasy names that normally fails pretty bad into a funny spoof of mastermind villain names.

Is it ok if I use part of that rhyme for kids remembering my name if I ever start going by my last name? Specifically the part about super powers, I've previously used, it's like Bowser if you move the s, not nearly as clever.

I release this rhyme under a creative commons, non-commercial license. In other words, go ahead! Rhyme away, but don't try to sell it in a book of poetry or something.
