Normalice - combination of normal and malice

Okay, I'll be honest.

Initial thought was Normal + Ice, like, hey, maybe this guy likes cold builds or something.

Then thought it was Normal + Lice, to which I then thought, "can't be, that's nasty."

Then you said Normal + Malice, and I'm like, "oh."

that's actually... kinder(?) than most peoples' guesses. Usually they think "'norm alice'. guy name and a girl name. must be a cross-dresser"

though that might have more to do with the company i keep than the name itself..
Mirri : MTG card called "Mirri Cat Warrior". This game used to be big at my school and I had a deck focused around this card.
Tormin : Just the name of all my warriors. Started with a dwarven character in Icewind Dale.
Remo : Name I made up.
Saina : Also something I made up, first used it for a ritualist in GW1.
Jadoun : Tried to make an exotic sounding name for my WD.

I thought it was simply "normalize" with a funky spelling.
Namcap is the name I have used everywhere in online games for 25 something years. It is backwards Pacman.
Wakawaka is the sound Pacman makes.
Fwomp is the way I imagine you spell the sound it makes when you put a Lego head on zombies in Dead Rising (so many hours spent doing this)
Chabadoo is from the Everquest era, there were monsters that when hit, would yell out something that sounds like Chabadoo.
(there is a trend with funny sounds here...)
RNGesus is because reasons.
Setmule is my mule that holds sets.
Moresetmule is a mule that holds more sets.
Legmule is a mule that holds legendaries.
Stuffmule is a mule that holds stuff that is neither legendary nor sets.
