    cool OOTS #793 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    Also, I doubt there's anyone reading this who didn't read the last post of the now-locked thread about book ordering, but if there is, there's now a News post dealing with it.

    Well this can't be good for Elan...

    On a side note, Nale and Sabine both got new clothes! And Nale a different style goatee

    Silly Nale. Muscle shirts are for guys with muscles.

    OH MY GIANT.

    THIS JUST GOT AWESOME.

    I really didn't expect that Nale and Sabrine would actually be here! Things just got 10 times worse. At least we know Tarquin would help attack Nale. Since it seems Nale once again wants to take over what Tarquin has made over the past 30 years.

    And once again, the LG have shown they are able to cunningly separate the Order and have them running around like headless chickens. It's like they don't learn anything from the previous encounters.

    I would hope Elan gets offed, except that would be bad for Haley too.

    Interesting, so that's almost all of the Linear Guild. Still no sign of who Nale got to replace Leaky.

    So Elan purposely refused to believe Nale was alive until he showed up for the sake of plot. But when he explained it, it became for the sake of jokes.

    I had the opposite reaction. I saw a muscle shirt, and my brain went, "Wow, Nale's been working out!" The power of suggestion, I guess.
    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.

    He's probably just wearing it because of the heat.

    Anyways, level drain is going to hurt Elan a lot. He's losing his best spell slots from that.

    4th panel, you can see Elan's rapier when he reaches for his papers.

    At least I think its his rapier

    Yes, Elan, Endurance and Run are fantastic choices.

    Intelligence and wisdom penalties. And endurance is pretty decent. Run, on the other hand...

    And now I feel stupid.

    Lets hope that the Guild doesn't find it and smash the thing to pieces.

    Ahh it's funny.

    Elan is totally screwed but it's still funny.

    First of all, Elan rocks.

    I think we could all take a page from his book.

    EDIT - Oh and I LOVE Sabine's new bikini!

    I understand the feeling of self-induced migraine all too well, Nale.
    Fair warning: I edit my posts fairly continuously, sometimes adding substantial amounts in the period immediately after I post originally. I blame grad school instilling a constant need to revise.
