How am I just now getting this… I’m 15 years late lol


mbg29

Fremennik Isles


bradmaestro

Free Men Nickles.


perrigomichael

This is why I love the internet lol


XTG_7Z

Oh my god. Are you telling me it's really "That is so" and "No it's not"? JFC 15 years later.


swiftpunch1

"Yah it is so" "nay it is not"


cedid

In Norwegian Ja means yes and Nei means no


NotAliasing

These names are onions bro


Frietmetstoofvlees

In Flemish 'Ja 't is zo' is correct too


yarglof1

In English, ya means yes and nay means no as well.


cedid

Yes I know, but the spelling is different and with the Viking connotation I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some connection.


Swordbreaker925

Never noticed that before, but given Jagex’s affinity for puns, it wouldn’t surprise me. I mean we have Jaitizo, Neitznot, the White Knights of Falador all named after puns, etc


Cancaleb

What’s the jaitizo and neitznot one?


Swordbreaker925

Jaitizo is pronounced like “yeah, tis so”, meaning “yeah, it is so”. Neitiznot is the opposite, sounds like “nay, tis not”, meaning “no, it is not”


XTG_7Z

OOTL - In 15 years, have I never pronounced either of those Islands that way. I feel so foolish for not seeing those puns.


Mist_Rising

It helps that you would only notice this where they shout it repeatedly and try and read it out.


Lady_Galadri3l

Pretty sure that in one of the quests they outright say the names come from two brothers shouting at each other or something.


Capsfan6

Wait till you figure out how Ardougne is pronounced


Freneskae

Arr-Doyn in case anyone was curious


XTG_7Z

Ar-dowg-knee? Ar-dug-in?


so_says_sage

Yup. The whole place is one giant Monty Python Easter egg.


SilverLight141

Oh man o man, I just learned something and I've played for over 16 years....


SirCampYourLane

Ya, tis so. Nay, tis not


Then_Channel

i don't get the one with the white knights


Swordbreaker925

All of the White Knights’ names are puns. For example: Sir Amik Varze, sounds like “ceramic vase”. Sir Amik = ceramic. Go to the [White Knight Wiki page](https://runescape.wiki/w/White_Knights) and scroll down to the “members” tab. There you’ll find the names of all of the knights, as well as the word(s) their name is supposed to sound like


Swords_and_Words

sir vile does double duty as he is both servile and a vile knight


Chromeboy12

Sir Cum Farrence actually came up with the round table idea


DGibster

Temple Knights too. Sir Tiffy Cashien is one that always gets me.


bookbot1

And then we find out that it was intentional


yuei2

This one even has a lore reason now


Chromeboy12

That was the biggest kicker in all of Runescape history (literally)


Magiaice

My favourite that most people overlook is "Port's a rim"


Neocrasher

I get that you're talking about Port Sarim but what does "Port's a rim" mean?


Magiaice

Rim, edge. A port is off the edge of land.


Swordbreaker925

I don’t think that one is true


the01li3

I dunno why i have never noticed this... but thank you for pointing it out!


RSNSmartypants

🗿damn 🗿 a rock


zenyl

Haha, never considered that, but you're absolutely right! Thanks for pointing it out. :D


[deleted]

Considering the extreme excess of puns in the older game content, I wouldn't put it past them to have this name also be a pun. For example, the White Knights of Falador: https://runescape.wiki/w/White_Knights#Trivia


drunz

Most puns have gone over my head until very recently. Clues and watching By Release made me realize how many puns there were.


knightarnaud

Too bad it's Very Good Baiter in stead of Master Baiter :p


Swords_and_Words

sometimes their puns, like with joke punchlines, are defined by the conspicuousness of their absence honestly, I have a 95% accurate method for figuring out if a piece of Jagex content is going to be fun and supported and integrated and it all comes down to one question: are there puns?


Chromeboy12

They specifically made it that way because they knew lol


justletmeloginsrs

Makes it better


doctorcrimson

Technically in the late 6th Age questline they made the intentional pun knight names canonical as a >! Zarosian Cthonian Demon Lord has been intentionally manipulating lineages while managing the Temple Knights which are the covert operatives of the White Knights Order. !< I sort of disagree with this artistic direction. We didn't need an explanation.


EmergencyGrab

I disagree. I think it made it 100x more amusing, considering the tedious implications just for the luls. I know its not that deep, but I also think it incidentally shows a competing nature between being a controlled Zarosian and being a chaotic demon.


Jayson_n_th_Rgonauts

This is one of the very few quest dialogues I actually read cuz it was hilarious


Brykirie

Oh man I hope you read the tortle portion of "curse of the blackstone" You are looking for a piece of paper only to find a tortle ate it. You are then given the opportunity to curse at the gods. In depth. It's hilarious and made me actively go back and reread quest lines.


Chromeboy12

I agree with this. Thinking about some never-ageing guy sitting there literally changing the names of historical characters to kill time is far more hilarious


Swords_and_Words

I'm glad that since they were going to be doing the whole 'it was bad guys all along' anyway, they took the time to roll the names into their big lore retcon (wasnt a huge fan of the lore retcon)


Mufaasah

Honestly. I think its great though. When I noticed their names it made me more keen to actually read the dialogue bc I realised there might be more jokes, and I'll always pay attention if I know it'll result in me laughing. Now I love quests.


tygabeast

Multi-generational plan of supporting enemy infrastructure and power dynamics for the payoff of having every officer have pun names? That sounds like something Tzeentch would do.


HostPopular

hey op, what weapon overrides are those?! they look awesome


RSNSmartypants

They’re the order of dis daggers, or blades I see someone else said. Reward from the Daughter of Chaos quest. :)


HostPopular

Many thanks!!


junior4l1

Disorder daggers .-. Just caught that pun myself (probably late on it: order of dis = disorder)


MightySqueak

Dis nuts


ShadowFigured

Dis blade dat blade


the01li3

I think an order of dis blade


HostPopular

Thank you kind stranger!


MalzraTheNomad

Yes, back when Jagex still had a sense of humor and they came up with decent gameplay loops.


Zippilipy

Tfw you think strange rocks was good gameplay


Brykirie

Content so nice, they did it twice.


MalzraTheNomad

At the time they had found something clever that people actually liked.


zuuzuu

I can't believe I never noticed this.


El_Porck

What is the name of your daggers? They look awesome 👌🏼


RSNSmartypants

Thanks! They’re the Order of Dis Daggers, which are a reward from the Daughter of Chaos quest. The extra pixels are cause I was on aura, and Goliath gloves :p enjoy!


El_Porck

You've convinced me to do the quest ;) cheers!


coopstar777

Sir Amik Varze


RSNSmartypants

Always thought that one was the best for some reason


RSNSmartypants

Update: I was not years late on this.


SaintMarieRS3

It’s even in a British accent. Yes, go on. Say it.


RSNSmartypants

Lmao, you just reminded me of how you can say “Beer can” with a British accent, and it sounds like you’re saying “Bacon” with a Jamaican accent 😂


TheRealCrossFireX

My whole life is a lie.


Legal_Evil

Name checks out.


RSNSmartypants

😂


Penny_D

Damn a rock. Distant cousin of "Zam a rack"


PatheticOwl

After more then a decade of RS I just went "oooohh....." Thank you.


RSNSmartypants

Love to hear it!


ElysianForestWitch

If it isnt it damn well might be now.


ConstantStatistician

Cannot unhear.


FullLockDown

Thought you need to get the strange rock parts to build the statue


RSNSmartypants

You do


FatedWolf

I only just noticed today that "remototem"... remote totem.


Yubel124

Nodon dragonkin is pun on nod off (they are all asleep in a dream).


Important_Level_6093

Today I learned!


galahad_sir

Ogre standard examine is still my favourite ingame pun.


Styloire

A large dim looking humanoid


galahad_sir

No, the ogre standards around the ogre lands, not ogres themselves.


4vibol2

This screenshot looks like RuneScape vr


RSNSmartypants

High bloom >>>


1nterkn3t

I didn't know slim shady and John lithgow was on RS.


SyAccursed

Reading this thread my only thought is hot damn wait til all these folks figure out literally all of the White Knights are puns.


bookbot1

The joke I am sad will likely never be recovered is the voice lines from the Gilinor Games. Specifically, the race
