    Made. Of. Win! Loved Elan's wishful thinking and the rain check, but Macebook is the funniest thing as of late.

    Oh boy. This is going to be awkward, isn't it?

    And to think, he could have just said, "hey, those are my friends!" and everything would be fine.

    Edit: to the post above me, Durkon thinks Elan and Haley are prisoners under armed guard, and is now undertaking to break them out.

    LOL!

    I really like it how Durkon and Malack get along despite their cultural differences!

    Heh, nice! Never got into Facebook, but I really like that punchline. More Durkon and Malack interaction, and Elan's JD-esque fantasy were great, too.

    That's probably the most use, and certainly the best, that anyone's ever gotten from the dwarven ability to detect new construction.

    The title makes me think of Randy Milholland's Fluffmodeus. "Hello new friend!"

    I love the Macebook idea. Nice to see Paladins of Marduk can smack dragons. And is there significance to his next couple of updates? Changing location, followed by joining "Need a Res"...

    Wait, that's a real ability? I thought it was him pulling the (stone) wool over Malack's eyes.

    Presumably, the priest of Tiamat read his location change on Macebook, then went to meet him, then killed him.
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    The words "Order of the stick" are obscuring the speech bubble, which have never happened before.

    Also, why "mace"?

    Doubtful. Though I don't know how much of their conversation he heard.

    Because it rhymes with "face" and because they're clerics. The mace is practically the signature weapon of clerics.

    Hah, I'd not noticed that! It made me go to my shelf, pick out my Yamara anthology and try to look up the Great Secret of the dwarven folk... See, in red box D&D (and probably earlier) dwarves had the ability to detect sloping corridors. They were the only race/class that could detect sloping corridors. Manui and Adams took this to its logical conclusion and wrote a couple of strips where other characters were astonished at the dwarvish ability to use that most mystical of tools, the inclined plane, to make huge boulders roll onto their enemies!
