Ah. Yup I assume that's how most people who know Swedish think (at least the orka part). And that was kind of intentional... which is why "orka" is standing alone. But when Lilotes said Hurricane I suddenly remembered something that happened a time long ago, when I was hanging out at another forum and met those people IRL, they called me "Orkan" (pronounced like Swedish hurricane)... Nostalgic stuff.

Oh well. In other news, I'm at least keeping it fairly close against Deathless Mortal. Quite content with my own performance in this popcon, couldn't have asked for more.
