I love reading peoples answers!
For myself, once when asked to play the "what animal would you be" I decided on bumblebee because they are indedendant, jolly and positive. Bumblebee contracted to Bumbly to bimbly (harmless and friendly ambling) and Nim is a contraction of my given name.
wasn't Ariakas leader of one of the 7 dragon armys?
haven't read dragonlance for years, almost want to dig it up again but just totally ruined the song of the lioness for myselff by re reading it, so might be better to leave it as scetchy slightly embarrasing pubecent memory
