Hothead Games sent over a bunch of character bios on the people you'll meet in the upcoming sequel to DeathSpank, subtitled Thongs of Virtue. These are both folks you'll help and enemies that you'll dispense hot, foamy justice to. Santa seems like a pretty big deal (literally) but my favorite is General Snugglewugglepants for obvious reasons. Those being that he's a General and his last name is Snugglewugglepants. Obviously.
God, I loved DeathSpank. While I can understand some people being a bit miffed that a sequel is coming so soon after the original, I couldn't be happier. It has such a delicious sense of humor and a fun, relaxed gameplay that I can't wait to get a little bit more.
