What’s in a Paddock Name?

Nov 15, 2021

Have you wondered how Paddock names come about? Hint: It’s not a special ceremony where ancient Burner Gods read your soul and bestow your true identity on you, along with your Paddock Hat and a coupon for free sausage rolls (if only!) 

Paddock names happen when they happen: They are no badge of honour, they are not a prize, they are not an indicator that you’re a real Burner now (that’s inside you all along!). But if you want to know more about them, read Lumos’s blog and be Enlightened (he’s into that!).
