The game was Medivia, a text based MUD.
The first game name I chose was Argel. This short, but unusual name was a good fantasy character, IMO. Being a MUD, I soon grew bored. But, being a good game, I came back 2 years later. My password, based on a scrap of paper, somewhere, forgotten. I lost Argel for good at that time, but I could still use it. (Krg)argel, Krgargel, that became my new name. Everyone accused me choosing by sneezing and convulsing on my keyboard. Ha!
I suppose some of my best ideas seemed like convulsions or nasal reactions to everyone else.
