Ollie, as he appears in some games.

TPOSG, or The Phantom Orange Shirt Guy, is a German member of The Neopets Team. Real name Ollie, TPOSG is mostly famous for the many Easter eggs he leaves in some of his flash games, usually featuring himself.

He received the name The Phantom Orange Shirt Guy after a Petpage dedicated to Neopets Oddities' won the Site Spotlight. The Petpage listed many of his Easter egg appearances, and wondered who he was. The name is based on the fact that he was almost always pictured in an orange shirt, and left very little evidence of himself, other than the brief appearances.

He left Neopets sometime early 2008 to work again for Adam and Donna for Meteorgames. He does come play Neopets when he gets the chance but he is no longer part of TNT staff.

Plot Summary[edit]

TPOSG during the Altador Cup

Altador Cup[edit]

Main Article: Altador Cup

TPOSG took part of the Staff Tournament, playing for Roo Island's team. In the first round, he beat Tyrannia's Dom Dread and went on to defeat Mystery Island's Subordinate Prime and Altador's El Picklesaur. In the final, his winning streak won him first place against snarkie, who was playing for Virtupets Space Station.

Trivia[edit]

  • TPOSG is well-known for giving out faked hints for ongoing plots. For example, the shop number 42 has a hidden link to the Neopedia article about Altador - see 42 on Wikipedia. The link was most likely coded by TPOSG during the Altador Plot.
  • During the Tale of Woe plot, users who neomailed TPOSG about it often got the reply '42'.
