Ironicaly Durak is the only one of my characters who ever speaks of it. He inserts the T due to his accent. He knows it's got some daft topsider name that's awkward on the tongue but he does his best to make himself understood.

It's a misspelling I've been seeing a lot lately, from pretty much everyone. When I saw your post, I figured it was time to point out the error. :P

What's considered "in" now, in terms of tormenting Zach, if I might so bold to ask?
Title: Re: it's "KROFBURG" no "t"!
Post by: Norture on January 01, 2012, 06:46:39 PM
Hmm, hard to say. Vasco had the "Demean him, cast flesh to stone on him, stick him in the mine, threaten to kill him if he quits" thing going on. Ever notice Zach only quit the Vardo after Vasco had been missing for a few weeks? ;P

That's sooo last November now. I guess if you want to get under Zach's skin you could make fun of how rail thin he is, or how drug-induced impotence. If he's called "Limpy" enough it would start giving him a sad.

I know you like your T and A, BSR, but they don’t apply here.

In all seriousness we have some newer players who may be confused about the spelling and that doesn’t bother me. This post hopefully clarifies things. But the meme is old. Let it go.
