I have no idea where Ian came up with this name, but it’s a unique one. Personally, I’ve always pronounced it “ee-ker”. What about you guys?

I think the point was to have a name no one knew how to pronounce, since those show up in rpgs from time to time.

I would just love to see a panel where Ian avoided saying the name at every possible chance.

I figured it rhymes with Riker from ST:TNG

I am now caught up with the revival.

I knew that was Hero in Steven Universe, I tried looking for the comic but I couldn't find it. I'm glad it's revived. I made sure to read everything again before reading the new stuff.

Er on the subject of this comic... I've been lazy and just pronounced it Eric.

Hey excellent! I sincerely hope you enjoy what you see! As for Eric, that is a much easier way to do it, haha.

I read it as eye-cray. Hadn't previously thought of the 'er' sound for the end... but there's precedence for it in English.

Glad to see this comic continue. I was disappointed when reaching the previous unended stop.

...and all caught up!

I never stumbled upon the original version of this strip, but yeah, I'm here now.

...

Also soon to go into "new comic withdrawal" in 5... 4... 3...

I always went with "Eye-ker" I actually cosplayed him once, I believe it was I-Con 2004 or 2005...I went with the "I <3 Evil" shirt look.

Dude, cool! I've never seen an RPG World cosplayer. Granted, my first con was in 2008, well after it died.

Yeah, I was with a friend dressed as Reka, actually she was featured way back in the day in the commentary section, her name was Venus. I'd share the pics of us together but back then I still used a camera with film so that means I'd have to dig through physical photo albums to find them...

That's some modern day archaeology my friend

Holy frick, an RPG World revival?! When did this happen?! (A little over two months ago, apparently.) Can't believe it's been over ten years since I was reading it before. You have my eternal love.

So excited to have you! (Psst! Tell your friends!)

I've always pronounced it like eeye-kr-ee. although to be fair, until now i don't think I've ever actually said his name out loud...

Okay I'm glad this came up because it's bothered me for so long xD My pronunciation of choice was always "Ike-er"
