Added DiffLines:

* FanservicePack: Directly tied to the above mentioned ArtEvolution. In response to criticisms of the new design, Kurtz said he had wanted from the start to make Jade sexy, but his art skills at the time weren't up to the task.

* AddictionDisplacement: A recurring problem for Jade, who goes from being addicted to ''UltimaOnline'' to ''VideoGame/{{Everquest}}'' to ''VideoGame/DarkAgeOfCamelot'' to ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', much to Brent's frustration. Also was addicted to email for awhile, though this seems to have been dropped.

Skull [[JustForPun Theodore]] Troll is a 400-year old troll who is the only non-human member of the ''PvP'' staff. Childish and innocent, Skull is something of an odd match even discounting his mythical nature, being completely sweet and good-hearted, quite large, and also unpaid (he works there officially as an intern). Skull was originally imported from Scott Kurtz's earlier comic, ''Tales By Tavernlight'', and was modeled (at least initially) after the trolls featured in ''UltimaOnline''. Since then, however, he's become an integral part of the cast, the comic's mascot, and developed a rich backstory. His flatulence has also become a subject of great notoriety within the strip.

* ExpansionPackPast: Initially, Skull was just an import from ''Tales By Tavernlight'', which was set in the world of ''UltimaOnline''. Then, it was later established that the characters of ''Tales By Tavernlight'' actually existed in the historic past. At some point, it was revealed Skull was present during the [[TheLordOfTheRings War of the Ring]]. Then, his cousin [[spoiler:Shecky]] was revealed. Lastly, it appears that in addition to all these other details, Skull has also been [[spoiler:Brent's guardian angel / imaginary friend since childhood.]]

The founder and chief executive officer of ''PvP Magazine'', Cole Richards is, along with Jade, the grounding center of the main cast, often contrasting with the wild antics of the main cast (though he's been known to go off the reservation himself). Brent's college roommate and best friend since high school, Cole [[strike:is]] ''was'' the only married member of the main cast. He's also the only one with children. Allegedly based on Richard Stockton, a friend of Scott Kurtz's.

* MistakenForGay: Much of the cast suspects Max Powers is gay. [[http://www.pvponline.com/2008/11/21/old-wounds/ He's hinted as much]], but [[http://www.pvponline.com/2008/12/03/good-night/ won't give a straight answer]] (as it were). [[http://www.pvponline.com/2011/05/27/setec-astronomy/ Lately, he seems to be dating someone]]... [[GenderBlenderName named Chris]].
** And afterward, [[http://www.pvponline.com/2011/07/11/random-encounters/ Jade ran into him at the market, where she saw him holding hands with a unknown guy]]...
*** And now, it's confirmed: [[http://www.pvponline.com/2011/07/13/the-secret-of-him/ Max is gay.]]
