The Cartoon Character
Creation of an Alias
Self-Bestowed Titles

By this point you're probably wondering what in the world Yamara actually is, and where I got it from. Perhaps you aren't. Regardless, I'm going to tell you.

Yamara is actually a cartoon character from a strip in Dragon Magazine. The strip was compiled into the Yamara Comic Book. Yamara is a spunky ill-fated halfling who is constantly striving to become a master thief. The strip originally started out with AD&D jokes, and then proceded to get very obscure by adding player researched spells, man-made (perhaps drow-made is more correct) monsters, and finally a space-faring voyage in a boat to a different world. The cartoon has continued past the book, but I have unfortunately lost track of the plot. However, the creators have a
web site.

I've been using the nickname Yamara for many ages gone by. This translates to about 5 years, perhaps longer. In addition to the occassional MUD, MOO, or MUSE I've been seen on, I BBSed for a significant part of my childhood. I hung out on a few of the Marin/Sonoma boards, spending a lot of time on the local
Broderbund BBS. With a 32 line chat, and a lot of bored teenagers, we managed to amass some interesting gatherings.

Vaguely related to my use of Yamara as an alias/handle/ID/(insert synonym here) are the titles I use. Just pick one, and it'll be somewhat unsatisfyingly or exhaustingly explained.
