    If we include Belkar calling the Thieves' Guild in 612 "a bunch of third rate wannabes", then I propose we also include him in 613 calling Bozzok and Crystal "glorified pickpockets." (And perhaps include referring to himself as a "seasoned warrior" as well.)

    I pulled out my copy of DStP with Belkar's introduction to the book (Masterwork Theater) - "This stupid paladin-town" for Azure City comes up, Xykon is "The lich", and V, Durkon and Elan are "the other three idiots". The main plotline is "this whole thing with Gates and a god-eating monster".

    Pick whichever of those you like. I like everything other than Xykon as "The lich", but forum choice. All of those are on page 7.

    I don't really see a problem here. And I don't really see a reasonable way how this should work without a whole bunch of work I really wouldn't like for this (like voting on what counts as valid and what not).

    Some names are pretty clear "proper names" (like "Whiskers Von Thor-Bugger" or "Captain Wallow-Pants"). But then it slowly starts to get fuzzy - for someone it might count, for others it might not. The only hard rule that I think that could be used would be capitalization, but even this seems to lead to pretty much arbitrary decisions (e.g. "Lizard Vampire Guy" counts, but "that dwarf guy" don't), while missing out some really funny stuff (" [Thanh's] partner-in-ridiculous-blue-facial-hair" or "That pointy-eared pissbucket"). On top of that is sometimes isn't clear whether some phrase is capitalized or not (e.g. in 1015 the sentence starts with "Fake Durkon". It is impossible to tell from the comic why it is capitalized).



    I plan on adding the newly proposed book introductory stuff when I have more time (hopefully tomorrow).

    I went through my books the other day and remembered this post. I only have DStP, DCF, and NCftPB (and SOD, but Belkar's not in that...). Anyways, the only nickname in the bonus panels of those books that was remotely funny was 34a of DCF where Belkar calls Dwarven Iron Rations (that Elan describes as the illegitimate love child of evil beef jerky and trail mix) as "Dwarven Crap".

    tl;dr 34a - Dwarven Iron Rations = Dwarven Crap

    Well, I could put something else there, but haven't found something fitting for my tastes. But since you aren't the first to bring this up, maybe I really should do something about it.

    Currently the most likeliest thing to happen is adding some sort of <censored> to make it clear that there is something that isn't intended for display (and well - it is probably a bit inconsistent to have Belkar's Rod of Lordly Might censored while paraphrasing the Beast with Two Backs).

    Well, trying to figure out which came from the Belkster might be a little problematic.

    Jerkon definitely comes from Belkar.

    I suppose that:
    Deep Fang Friar
    The Creature Preacher
    Pastor Expiration

    Also have his mark, but it's harder to tell.

    We could add a new "Possibly from Belkar" section. Normally I would complain about that a bit, but all these nicknames are so funny that I have absolutely no problem with erring on the side of inclusion for them.

    Short of the Giant providing a definitive answer, I'd say the only one that's definitely Belkarian (Belkaresque? Belkarish?) is "Leechy Veinquaff."

    It fits in with his previous insulting nicknames for Durkon/Norse-feratu, such as "Lurky Corpsewhiskers" and "Whiskers von Thorbugger." In fact, I'd actually be willing to put money on it being a Belkar construction.

    "Nose-Fur-Atu" and "Deep Fang Friar" are likely Belkarisms, IMO, but they don't have the almost unavoidable Belkar stamp like "Leechy Veinquaff" does.

    The puns are more Elan's style of humour. I'd certainly put Jerkon as a Belkarism, but Deep Fang Friar is from Elan.

    As far as I can tell, Belkar's nicknames from 1030 are: "Jerkon", "Leechy Veinquaff", "Pastor Expiration" and "Nose-fur-atu". Probably "Whiskers in the Dark" and "Deep Fang Friar" too, since it matches some previous spontaneous nicknames.

    [In fact, if I had to sort out all the nicknames, I'd say it goes:

    Belkar: Jerkon, Leechy Veinquaff, Pastor Expiration, Nose-fur-atu, Whiskers in the Dark, Deep Fang Friar;
    Haley: Undurkon, The Creature Preacher;
    Elan: Count Durkula, Nega-Dwarf, Nokrud, The Thorsaken;
    V: Hel's Shell, The Corpse Formerly Known as Durkon;
    Blackwing: Greg

    Belkar probably says 6 of the nicknames because he's the king of spontaneous nicknames, followed by the party's spoony bard with 4 and the not-so-creative rest with 2 or 1.]

    EDIT: Forgot Durkzzaro, but I have no idea who might have said this one since I couldn't get the pun.

    I do not plan to include any of these in the main list, because it is impossible to tell whether any of these is really Belkar or not. The only way to really do it would to vote on which is from Belkar and which is not - and I'm not sure this is really useful.

    Since this situation is rather unique I don't think it is necessary to add a special section for these, I think at most a link to the strip with a short explanation would be more than sufficient.

    I would suggest just adding a single row in the table listing *all* of them, with a short parenthetical note or endnote telling that some of those are from Belkar. We can still try to find out which ones are from whom, because it's fun and may help understanding the nicknames and the characters, but don't do that in the first post table.

    I'm going to be a stick-in-the-mud and suggest that none of these get included aside from the ones we know are from Belkar.

    This thread isn't the "Funny Nicknames From Members of the Order of the Stick Thread", as nice of a thread as that might be. As such listing them in a separate bit or adding them in any way is outside the scope of this thread, IMO.

    Are they funny? Sure. Are they nicknames? Undoubtedly. Do we have any way whatsoever of telling which are from Belkar and which aren't? Not really, IMO. Sure there are some that are much more likely than not. But that's not a high enough bar, IMO.
