    Default Will Parson Ever Appear In the Cast List?

    I've been hoping to see an entry for Parson Gotti in the Cast List for a while now, but he still doesn't have one. I know that you have a lot of items on your Things To Do In Our Copious Free Time, Rob and Jami, but if you do have time to make an entry for Parson, that would be really cool! I know that he isn't everyone's favorite, but damn it, he's the Protagonist!

    Actually, since, as various people have pointed out, Parson Gotti is an anagrom of Protagonist, I'd lay some pretty good odds on him being the protagonist.

    As a side note, I've NEVER been able to figure out how some people are able to figure stuff like that out.

    This is my bad. It's been on my To Do list since January. I will try and clean up some loose ends like this very soon, like this weekend or so.

    Yup. It's even in the Wiki for the strip.

    I thought it was like why The Giant doesn't updated the Oots cast list. You don't want to spoil things for new readers.

    The OotS cast list is the actual membership of the Order of the Stick. Erfworld doesn't have such a clearcut criterion for being a "major character".

    Any chance of the arkenpliers making it as well? The arkenhammer was in the cast list way before any of its powers were demonstrated in the comic..

    I think we'll leave it at Parson for now. It's hard to know where to draw the line and we've had requests for Sir Webinar and Dora, Vinnie Doombats, the various elves...

    Parson's undeniably worthy of the cast page. The rest? I think we'll err on the side of simplicity for now.

    Noooooo!!! Vinnie Doombats is not notable? What policy would that be, EW:N?

    Vinnie Doombats does rock, but he's been in maybe one panel. I say let the comic go on for a while before anyone other than Parson gets added- though I agree with Mima that some of the others, Sir Webinar for example, are pretty cool too.

    All right, then. As I said, the only reason I asked about them was the appearance of the arkenhammer there, but at the time I didn't think of the fact that the arkenpliers may not be nearly as plot-central as the arkenhammer has been so far.

    Most things cited in Wikipedia or whatever are true because they often have several links to reputable sources at the end. I here all this stuff about how anything could magically be changed at any moment and how on complex topics it can't be expected to have the best sources. If reliable sources are hard to find on a subject on wikipedia they're probably hard to find in general or controversial anyway. At least game and comic information should be trusted. The only stuff that has silly edit wars is obvious sensitive stuff like entries on nazis/hitler/holocaust etc.

    What really baffles me is that Sizemore is in while Parson is out. Sizemore was seen in just 2 issues and, great puns and all, had no effect on plot whatsoever. Parson is in at least 10 issues and practically is plot.

    Sizemore could prove incredibly important, and his character description doesn't spoil much. Mentioning Parson at ALL would spoil the first several pages.
