The name Flervin came in to existence when I was in Middle School. Back in those days I found The Simpsons to be wonderfully entertaining and had a bit of an admiration for Professor Fink’s nerdiness. Little did I know, the character of fiction would help shape my naming convention for nearly every game I have ever played.
Flervin was first used around the same time when my friends and I picked up Rifts and fumbled through the character creation process. The time came to name our newly rolled characters, and the first thing that came to mind was “Flavin”, the knee-jerk reactionary noise of the professor. I tried a few various sounds, and found Flervin to be a solid name…it never went away. Since the founding of the name, it has been the inaugural character in nearly every MMO and table-top RPG I have ever played. It only seemed right to incorporate the very name that has been so ingrained in to my gaming life that it be implemented here as well. Over the course of my gaming enjoyment, Flervin has been a Dwarf Paladin, a Gnome Warlock, and nearly everything in between.
As for me, I am currently working on my own piece of Indie RPG which I have named Hausbrau. I have played 4e, 5e, Dungeon Crawl Classics, Dungeonslayers, Fireball!, Rifts, Vampire, Werewolf, Basic Fantasy, AD&D, Swords and Wizardry, Labyrinth Lord, and many others.
I earn a scrape by working as a Software Developer in support of a large engineering company that is in nearly every piece of electronics that you own, but I doubt you have ever heard of us.
