Yeah but no one's created any new OC for them so I'm content to just idly think about them every once and awhile. What's the point of a thread without any new OC? Or hell post some old OC in screen-shot format in the thread threads if you want people to remember them as part of 'board culture.'

>Fizzgutz Da Klerik

>Fizzgutz is another anomaly. Originally just another lazy nob, he now has a much higher opinion of himself and believes he is a priest. He constantly quotes from "Da Buk" (which he has never read, as he is illiterate and considers reading to be unorky), and often gives aid to Orks with moral dilemmas. These usually boil down to "Is the problem fixed if you chop it? What if you shot it?"

>His epiphany came when he picked up a book that had fallen out of Boris the Titan. Upon inspecting the book, a nearby Ork caught fire and all of the surrounding grots said he must have done it, with the power of the book. Fizzgutz interpreted this as a message from Gork, that he must become the spiritual leader of Boris, and take the role of Priest for all the Grots.

>If anyone questions him, he replies that he is "on a mission from Gork", and that they should heed the words of Da Buk. Then he bashes them over the head with it for good measure.

That also extends to thread participation in general.

Personally I really liked grot quest (the only quest I ever bothered to participate in on /tg/), but the interest just wasn't there and so only two people were even rolling when it was discontinued.

There's also the usual stigma that seems to latch onto any /tg/ setting, creation, project, or character where someone will go out of their way to very vocally announce that they hate it. That also adds to the lack of progress of getting shit done... not that there was ever a goal for this to begin with other than orky hijinks.
