Weird, I have not seen this phrase used up until now, not even on this board.

I saw it first in Everquest circa when that Iskar expansion was released. It's been around awhile.

Stupid MMO term.
I used to have an account in 2002, but Gamefaqs ate it.

Why did people start calling them toons in the first place anyway? There characters were part of cartoons or something? :P

There's more characters in characters than in toons or builds, I'm trying to start a movement... Babies! "Yo check out the stats on this baby" "all my babies use fap" "my baby died"

Can't we just say "I made a new guy." or "I mad a new gal."

That's THREE ***ing letters over 4. Wooooo.

Stupid term is stupid, have no clue how it got accepted.
