I'm curious, XelKarin, are you a fan of The Faerie Queene?
Actually, I can't claim to have read it. When I was a kid I was given a set of books which were a collection of fairy tales. The poem just happened to be in one of the volumes. I started playing my first MUD
around that time and they required that the players use a fantasy role-playing name. I just picked one of those books off of my shelf and used the first name I found. I lost the books in 1999 when I was forced to move across country.
I've come up with other names for other MUDs and MMORPGs, but I used that in Medievia and FFXI. A few months ago, when I heard about FFXIV. I decided I'd use the name for that as well. Since FFXIV required players to use a last name, I decided to look up the name, find out what book it was and what the character's last name was. I discovered that it was from The Faerie Queene
and since no last name was provided for the character, I decided to use Sarizen since he was a sarizen knight.
I figure that now that I know, I'll try to find a copy of it and read it.
