    cool OOTS #935 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    There are some slight changes in color and font rendering from normal, due to the fact that I'm working on a different machine with different versions of all the programs I usually use. I'll try to iron these out as we go forward.

    Good comic. Expected a bit more from Laurin but whatever.

    Tarquin all alone now. I fully expect him to die now without Laurin.

    Blackwing is awesome!


    Sabine is awesome!


    Laurin is...smarter than Tarquin! (Not that we didn't know that already)


    Anyway, that was certainly more exciting than our last caster fight.

    So, does Laurin still get her favor, or will Tarquin refuse because she withdrew too early?

    I totally called V's strategy! Keep hitting her with spells that have to be dispelled or escaped from and let her run herself out of PP. Which had to happen sooner-or-freaking-later, I guess.

    Now everybody dogpile on Tarquin! See how he likes it with no casters to save his sorry rear.

    (Also, good on whoever said Blackwing would steal an Ioun Stone. I know somebody did.)

    Such is the price of going Nova. Hence that "big guns" quip.

    So Sabine got her revenge after all. Very satisfactory.

    I was just about to post that I felt that v was going to win through attrition, why else encourage Roy to make her use pp on wormhole earlier when they had no way of escaping.

    And now I wonder if Tarquin is still on board. Did Laurin leave him to his fate?

    Mad props to every Laurin psionic power point calculator on the board, and all the "how many spells has V cast" comments, because you guys were right - that was the key.

    BTW, I think V is using "intelligence" in the military sense, as in "information regarding the capabilities of the enemy".

    And Blackwing has a bauble. I wonder which ioun stone he grabbed? Hopefully one useful for V.

    Or, it's way to give definition to his droopy dreadlocks without it sort of merging with the bandanna.

    Amazing comic!

    the predictions of many playgrounders (about the lots of mana points spent) confirmed.
    Sweet sort of Sabine's regenge.
    Blackwing and the bauble.
    And victorious V.!

    She ran away. I'd say no. The deal was broken. At least that's how I take it

    The more interesting question is, does Miron? He didn't run away "technically". Does he still owe Tarquin?

    For reference, Blackwing's bauble seems to be an Orange Ioun Stone, which gives +1 to the user's caster level. (Luckily there's only one variety of orange stone, so there's no quibbling over shapes)

    Raven Familiar vs. Floating Baubles: Point Raven.

    All that time, V was counting point expenditures.

    I really do like V these days.

    And Blackwing, too. Not a poor decision, just a questionable one in terms of your own safety, good familiar.

    Quite worth the wait.
    I think I just failed a Spot check.
