    Q. Where did you get the idea to do this?

    A. This started as a game (Guess which character had the most appearances, then second most, etc.), but once all characters with three or more appearances were guessed, someone had the idea of keeping a running total, just for curiosity's sake. Then someone thought it might belong here instead of silly games, so n11 moved the list here instead of there. When n11's thread got 'ported over to the new forum, the formatting changes made it difficult to read. Plus, n11 hasn't shown up for quite a few comics, so the list was falling hopelessly out of date. So I have reformatted the list for the new forums and updated it. n11 hasn't shown up in the new incarnation of the forums, so now I'm doing it. You can see the second iteration of the thread at Number of Character Appearances (Improved!), and the third iteration of the thread at Number of Character Appearances III. The first iteration of the thread was purged when the boards were purged in February 2009. Additionally, here are the fourth, fifth, and sixth iterations of the thread - Emanick

    Q. Hey in comic 370...

    A. Stop right there. Because we have lost all record of conversations of comic strips before strip 371, we cannot go back and determine if your concern has been addressed. Rather than try to rehash old arguments, we're imposing a "statute of limitations" on discussions involving strips 1 through 370. I am sorry for the inconvenience.


    Q. What counts as an appearance?

    A. Any likeness of the character being visible (so Elan's appearance on Nale's blueprint counts, and Belkar's self-portrait in blood counts) and any dialog from a character, even if "off-panel" or invisible (so the strip where the party is in the invisibility sphere counts for each of the main characters). Also, when someone appears as someone else (for instance when Nale impersonates Elan), that counts as an appearance for both the character in disguise and the character being impersonated.


    Q. What's with the stuff in red and blue?

    A. Red means an appearance in bonus strips from the books (including the coloring books), the Kickstarter extras, and the strips published in Dragon Magazine. Each page of the book or magazine is treated as a separate strip. Blue means an appearance on multiple pages of a multi-page comic.

    Thanks to Fawkes (aka Mechafox), Paladin Carver, Porthos, Flame of Anor, SPoD, Gift Jeraff, RMS Oceanic, and all the other members who helped to compile all those bonus appearances!


    Q. If two characters have the same number of appearances, in what order do you list them?

    A. Characters are listed first by the number of standard appearances (as indicated with black numbers), and then alphabetically.


    Q. What happened to the death notices?

    A. In prior iterations of this thread, we used superscripted letters to indicate who killed or dismissed certain characters. But we decided that it was really not part of this thread's mission to serve as a running obituary. If you are interested in that, may we suggest The Graveyard?


    Q. Why haven't you listed the goblins/hobgoblins/zombies/ghouls/ghasts/Azure City guards?

    A. A character only gets listed if it is recognizable as an individual or if it's a recurring distinct group (such as the flumphs or the demon roaches). The indistinct masses do not get listed.


    Q. How did you choose the name for ?

    A. Monster in the Darkness is a frequently used name. There are others, but there's nothing that has been definitively established as his name. Until we get a firm name or identity, we will continue to call him "Monster in the Darkness".


    Q. What about the [insert unnamed character that only appears once]?

    A. If a character appears only once and is not named, then it doesn't get listed. Otherwise, the list would be completely unmanageable.


    Q. Who is Ted?

    A. The appearances of a goblin caster in #90, #93, #105, and #107 could be the same caster, given the limited context, and he could be given the same “Ted” first mentioned in #90, but the Giant has specified no such connection was ever intended. We're listing him anyway because we think it's clever.


    Q. Hey didn't you list Sabine's fiendish form as an alternate form? And wasn't this FAQ question previously about that?

    A. Yes. Sabine used to be listed with her red-leathered adventurer form (the one she originally appeared in) as her "natural" form and her fiendish form as a magical alteration. But now she has appeared in her fiendish form more often than her leather-clad form, so I've switched it around. Her fiendish form is now her natural form and the red-leather clad adventurer is one of her alternate magical forms (along with the cop, geisha, schoolgirl, guardsman, and fortune-teller disguises she's assumed).


    Q. Why is Banjo listed as a character? Banjo is an inanimate object!

    A. Blasphemy!! Seriously, you're probably right. But we like Banjo.


    Q. Why isn't Signore Stiffliano's first appearance listed in strip 290? (fourth frame)?

    A. That is not Signore Stiffliano. That is "fellow medium-sized paladin".


    Q. Why is Jirix's first appearance listed as strip 459?? That cleric's holy symbol looks different and strip 704? implies that when Signore Stiffliano killed him it was the first time he had died.

    A. In commentary in Don't Split the Party, the Giant said he felt Jirix was the cleric in the tower.


    Q. Why is Shlubbo Noname-zaki from strip 435? listed? That's not his real name.

    A. Well, it could be his real name. Either way, it's funny.


    Q. What does not count as an “Alternate Magical Forms”?

    A. We don't treat views of characters through scrying spells or devices, or characters covered in auras due to spellcasting or having a spell cast upon them, or conditions with no obviously magical cues (such as paralysis) as alternate magical forms.


    Q. Why doesn't paralysis (such as from hold person) count as an alternate magical form?

    A. We decided that since paralysis does not include any visual cues in the comic (other than absurd posturing), it should not be counted.


    Q. What does not count as an "Other Interesting Alteration"?

    A. We don't treat corpses, changes in age, or costuming as interesting alterations.

    Mark Monack, who went by Wrecan on these forums, was the curator of this thread in its second through fourth editions (a total tenure of about six and a half years). In that time he was also a well-respected member of the forums. As discussed in this news post, he died in 2013, and the Giant decided to name a character after him in tribute. He first appeared in strip #986 alongside the kickstarter cameo character, Veldrina. Strip #1025, which appears to be his last major speaking appearance, contains a number of tributes to him. The strip's title, "Mark of Distinction", includes his name. In reference to this thread, he mentions counting the number of times each legacy bearer is mentioned in his book on Weapons of Legacy. He also mentions that he likes to study obscure martial lore, which may be a reference to the Class and Level Geekery thread, which he also curated in its second through fifth editions. Finally, his exchange with Roy at the end of strip #1025 is in part a means for the Giant to bid farewell to the actual Wrecan, as well as for the readers (and Roy) to bid farewell to the character.
    Q. What does the title mean? Who are the 'absent friends'?

    A. Our first absent friend is Wrecan, the man who curated the second, third and fourth iterations of this thread. His story is told in the previous answer. During the fifth and sixth threads Martianmister held the job of curator. However, in early 2020 her brother revealed that she had passed away.

    In order to honor our previous curators, we have named the thread in memory of those that we have lost.

    Default Re: Number of Character Appearances VII: To Absent Friends

    Okay, well, it took way longer than I expected to get this thread fully updated and relaunched - adding information from some 30+ strips and a book's worth of bonus strips was not particularly easy, even with the fantastically useful help that Gift Jeraff and knag, in particular, gave me - but unless I missed some things (and I'm sure I did), I think it has nearly everything it needs to. I have to go back and make sure I didn't miss any "interesting alterations" in the past few dozen strips, and some other minor things, but essentially this thread should be regarded as up to date as of #1201.

    I imagine there are some broken links or typos, and although I've been fixing them as I find them, I'm sure there are some I missed. If you notice any errors, however small, please do bring them to my attention.

    I also need to add some images for the characters who made it above 10 appearances since the thread was last updated. I'm not yet sure whether I have the technical ability to create and edit the images myself; I'm not exactly a graphics whiz. I'll be looking into this soon, but in the meantime, if anyone can provide the missing pictures, I'd be very grateful.

    As was discussed in the last thread, there's also one significant methodological difference between this thread and the last: namely, that Durkon* is now treated as appearing on any page where Durkon Thundershield's vampirized form is visible. Almost everyone seems supportive of the tweak, or at the very least content with it, so I counted up the number of appearances for Durkon* and gave him a bit of a boost. He now has as many appearances as Redcloak, and slightly more than Xykon, which seems... wrong, somehow. Given where we are in the story, though I'm sure he'll be firmly behind them again soon.

    Here's the list of strips I gave Durkon* credit for appearing in, organized into groups of ten so that they're slightly easier to follow:
    Spoiler

    1-10: 878, 879, 882, 883, 892, 893, 894, 895a, 903, 905

    101-107: 1124, 1126a, 1127a, 1128b, 1129a, 1130a, 1131
    More than one page of a multipage strip (1-10): 906b, 917b, 922b, 946c, 948b, 963c, 985b, 987b, 994b, 996b
    More than one page of a multipage strip (11-20): 1000b, 1000e, 1007b, 1009b, 1086b, 1089b, 1116b, 1122b, 1126b, 1129b
    More than one page of a multipage strip (21-22): 1130b, 1130c


    I did my best, but it's possible that I missed some appearances. Again, if anyone notices any errors, please let me know.

    Finally, I'd like to add a tribute to martianmister. As Schroeswald suggested in the last thread, it would be fitting to add something to the FAQ, explaining the title and how it attempts to honor both of our dearly departed former curators. I haven't decided exactly how to word it yet, but I'll add it soon.

    Feel free to post now! I plan to use this post for any extra sprawl that we may accumulate over the next 50 pages (assuming we reach that marker before the comic ends!).

    Whoops. Thank you! That'll teach me to copy and paste at one in the morning without double-checking.

    I did actually count Belkar in #1201 - the roundup at the top of the thread is something I added at the last minute. Fixed.

    Anyone want to suggest a name for Pegleg's new girlfriend or the potion merchant, in case they appear in the next strip?

    I'm not certain about this, but lets try to write up the explanation for the title:

    Q. What does the title mean? Who are the absent friends?

    The first absent friend was Wrecan, the man who curated the thread from the second to the fourth iterations of the thread, his story is told in the previous answer. During the fifth and sixth threads Martianmister had the job of curator, however in early 2020 her brother revealed that she had died.

    I did actually count Belkar in #1201 - the roundup at the top of the thread is something I added at the last minute. Fixed.

    Anyone want to suggest a name for Pegleg's new girlfriend or the potion merchant, in case they appear in the next strip?
    In my tally, I called her Mechane Crewwoman with Eyepatch and Hook Hand.

    The potion merchant is apparently O’aka XXIII, from the Final Fantasy series. The clothes are almost identical, as is the role (from what I gather - I haven’t played the game(s) in which he appears).

    I don't get it...

    But we do need to give O'aka a cameo since we gave all the other Final Fantasy VI characters cameos.

    The first absent friend was Wrecan, the man who curated the thread from the second to the fourth iterations of the thread, his story is told in the previous answer. During the fifth and sixth threads Martianmister had the job of curator, however in early 2020 her brother revealed that she had died. In honor of the tragic deaths of our previous curators we have named the thread to remember those that we have lost.
    This is great. I may tweak a few words, but it gets the message across very well. Thank you for writing this.

    Thanks! I actually saw his name in knag's post on the last thread, but I've never played Final Fantasy and so I figured it was just an inside joke I didn't get. Shouldn't have assumed, but at least this way I got you to explain the reference to me. I'll add him to the first post(s).

    I'm guessing Mechane Crewwoman with Eyepatch and Hook Hand won't appear again, but your name is good, so we'll go with that if she does pop up again.

    I love it, even though I didn't actually get the joke and thought it was merely along the lines of "LOL eXXpIII SOUNDS LIKE XP."

    Incidentally: knag and Schroeswald, may I ask what your preferred pronouns are? You're both pretty active in these threads, so at some point I may end up using the wrong one if I'm not careful.

    Edit: Okay, so thanks to b_jonas, we're down to nine characters with missing smileys. Here's a list of them, in case anyone feels inclined to create them. I'm still not sure I trust my graphical abilities, although I may give it a try if nobody else is up for making them.

    Gotcha, thanks. That's what I thought, but in the past I've baselessly assumed that someone is male and I wanted to make sure I wasn't just doing so again.

    Did we ever definitively settle whether to treat other vampire characters the same way we now treat Durkon and Durkon*? I haven't changed the number of appearances for any other vampire characters yet, but it seems like we should have some kind of consistency. My instinct is to track other vampires separately as long as we've see them in both pre- and post-undead states, which I think would only affect the Ex-Exarch and a half-dozen or so other minor characters, and to otherwise conflate them entirely, while giving the vampires with pre-undead appearances an appearance for every post-vampirification strip they show up in, regardless of whether they speak. That seems like the simplest solution to me - what does everyone else think?

    I'm good with this approach. It's simple and straightforward.

    No big deal, really - not only can't all my jokes be winners, it was a spur of the moment coincidence that tickled my fancy and made me think it'd make other people groan, rather than laugh (thus my comment about suffering of others). If it is not a keeper, it is not a keeper.

    Since we are starting a new thread, I thought I’d throw this out there. We are tracking Banjo, Banjo’s Love Interest, Mr. Dragon, and Eliza, what do we think of including the following (major character!) additions?

    Lutey the Lute-tastical Lute (130 +8 +10)

    If we want to track them (which I prefer we didn’t), I propose a separate category: ”Named items that has yet to show evidence of personality, identity or sentience”.
    There aren't really any exclusive or original ideas on TVTropes. That's kind of the point.

    Regarding vampires, how did we end up with one Malack having 12 more appearances than the other? When did we see Malack when he wasn't a vampire?

    Banjo has at least some degree of creature-ness, and appears, in fact, to be an actual (albeit extremely weak) god. The vest and the lute are just inanimate objects, to which even Elan doesn't seem to have ascribed a personality, just a name.

    Sir Thumb and Rich Burlew are the same person, but referred to by different names in the comic and in our world. I think listing both names is probably the simplest way to address that.

    But the point is that both of them are listed as appearing in #864. Do we want that? Shouldn't it be one or the other?

    Sorry if I didn't make that clear.

    I'm not 100% certain, but I think this is a relic of Martianmister's decision to not give the vampire host an appearance unless it spoke on-panel. Since there is no instance where a non-vampiric Malack appears (regardless of whether or not he is pretending not to be a vampire), I'm inclined to collapse the difference between them entirely and list Malack only once, but I'd like to wait for other opinions before going ahead and making the change.

    Quote Originally Posted by Ron Miel View Post

    Yes, the thumb is Rich's thumb, but Rich also has made appearances in bonus content (mostly the introductions/forewords/whatever to various books), whereas the thumb only appears as a distinct (sort of) character in #864. So the decision was made to treat them as separate characters. I think that was probably the right call, but we can always change it if enough people feel strongly about it.

    I think I agree with Chronos here. As much as I seriously admire your tenacity in tallying up each and every appearance for Armand Vestinghole and Lutey the Lute-tastical Lute, and as funny as it would be to list them as real characters, I think it would be a bridge too far for this thread. Maybe if we create a new section in future - Even More Trivial Trivia, let's say - we could add them to it. I have been thinking about adding a new section down the road anyway, so keep that in mind.

    As for what else might appear in that hypothetical section - I've always wished that this thread ranked characters by the number of total pages they appeared on, rather than the number of online strips they appeared on. Indeed, if the thread were created today, I imagine that would be the case. I started reading this strip in late 2006, and joined the forum in early 2007, well after the first thread was created, but I assume the decision was made to rank characters by the number of online strips they were in because at first, nearly every strip was a single-page online strip, so that was the normal "story unit"; multi-page strips and bonus content were anomalies. Today, there are probably nearly twice as many pages of OOTS as there are online strips - perhaps more, I haven't checked - so ranking characters by the number of online strips they appear in tends to significantly distort their actual story prominence.

    If this thread was a purely solitary endeavor, I would probably just rewrite the whole thing and rank characters by the number of story pages they'd showed up on. (In fact, I did exactly that for a while on a stupidly-long TextEdit file on my computer, until that series of strips where there were like 20 distinct dwarf vampires on each page and tracking both their dwarven and vampiric form became more trouble than it was worth. ) However, this is a community project, not an individual one, and even if nobody else really cared what I did, this thread has a history that I respect implicitly and would not want to set aside lightly (I mean, I've been following it regularly for like 48% of my life, for crying out loud). Changing the way we track vampires is, I think, a helpful and relatively minor bookkeeping decision; altering the overall character-ranking methodology is one of the most major changes we could make to this thread. So it is not something I am suggesting, and it is not something I will suggest, unless a majority of people who follow this thread actively want me to.

    That said, "which characters are most prominent by number of total pages appeared on" (I'm really going to have to come up with a more concise way of saying that) does strike me as relevant and interesting enough (you know, relatively speaking ) to track in some capacity. So if we were to create an Even More Trivial Trivia section, I'd enjoy creating, say, a "Top 50 characters" ranking that measured appearances by that metric.

    I currently have a page count tracking going on in a google doc (I mentioned it a few months ago iirc), with some slightly different stuff in it, namely I didn't bother separating any vampires besides Durkon and Gontor, it also doesn't contain all characters under 10 pages because I was too lazy to add them all, its probably drifted a bit since its been going on for nine months without me being able to check back (I should probably do that soon), one interesting fact I found in it is that for most of that time Hilgya and Minrah were floating around the same page count.

    Funnily enough, I also didn't bother tracking characters who appeared on fewer than 10 pages. Great minds think alike, I guess.

Maybe if we create a new section in future - Even More Trivial Trivia, let's say - we could add them to it. I have been thinking about adding a new section down the road anyway, so keep that in mind.
    Thanks! This is just the tip of the iceberg of my, um, tenacity. See below....

So if we were to create an Even More Trivial Trivia section, I'd enjoy creating, say, a "Top 50 characters" ranking that measured appearances by that metric.
    So, I have my own tally that lists them not by pages, but by panels. All 1980 characters, throughout [almost] all media. I say almost, because I haven’t included the t-shirts, holiday ornaments, or other physical media outside of books and calendars.

    My project started as a way of determining if Vaarsuvius was, in fact, the most talkative of the characters, as is the reputation. I counted all of the words spoken by all of the characters, and that ballooned into a comprehensive tally of a wide variety of data points. The laborious part was entering the data. Now that I’m caught up, each new comic takes about 10-15 minutes to enter.

    If you look above any comic you will see six icons to navigate through the archive. One of them is ! in a circle. Mouse hover over thiis will take you to the Extras page. That, in turn, will link to pages for wallpapers and incentive comics.

    It's my understanding that, for example, this went up on the main page occasionally when the Giant was unwell. And cartoons such as this are fun.

    Are they included in the count? Should they be?


    Yes, the thumb is Rich's thumb, but Rich also has made appearances in bonus content (mostly the introductions/forewords/whatever to various books), whereas the thumb only appears as a distinct (sort of) character in #864. So the decision was made to treat them as separate characters. I think that was probably the right call, but we can always change it if enough people feel strongly about it.
    But the point is that both of them are listed as appearing in #864. Do we want that? Shouldn't it be one or the other?

    Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
