    Default What are your favourite small moments?

    What differentiates the great from the good is the little things. And for me, the latest comic, 409, provides a perfect example. It was a good strip with interesting dialogue and the plot moving forward. But it was the last two panels that made me smile and remember what makes me read this, my only webcomic. The Giant found a way for Belkar to vent his feelings towards Miko without activating his Mark of Justice in such a Belkar way.

    But what about you? What are your favourite small moments? Just one or two panels, or a throw away line of dialogue that lifts this comic above the rest of the good?

    I really enjoyed belkar hanging from the gallows being swung against the back of the bandit sorceress. I dont remember exactly anymore what he said, but what he said was fun.

    I was particularly fond of V's "I intentionally mispelled Explosive so they wouldn't trigger..." and Belkar's "But you didn't mispell Explos- BOOM!" exchange :P

    Roy's usual combat banter degrading his opponents.

    The big battle scene; Xykon: "...Also Magic Missile"

    Demon roaches playing with Xykon's crown.

    Elan sneaking back into the tent with flowers and chocolate.

    Haley: "Feminine products."

    Belkar stabbing the dead goblin in the head.

    Thog cutting down Harry Potter.

    Thog's pants turning purple.

    Durkon getting the bandits to bring him a gold-plated 'dwarf-sized' mug of ale. And not even being embarassed about having it after his speech. That was teh icing on the cake

    My favorite small moment wasn't any specific comic but rather when I realized that men have square bodies and women have rounded pill like bodies. It was all I could notice for weeks.

    My potential favorite is if the little kick that Belkar delivers at the end of the most recent strip kills Miko. Something so small could still be considered "lethal damage" :)

    A really good one is panel #6 of comic 80. Roy's frown and Elan's smile just make it hilarious. I also like when Elan is trying to convince V to join the first church of banjo. I love it when Belkar pushes V into the owlbear.
    Here is what I'm offering: talk about strategy with me for ten minutes, and this hobgoblin will hit the other hobgoblin in the face with a banana cream pie.

    There may be hope for you!
    Your approval fills me with shame.

    Change of plans. Send fifteeen - no - twenty warriors up the path on, uh, scouting duty. Tell them to shout if they don't find anything.

    Exactly when did you become the ultimate authority on me? If you took everythink you don't know about me and put it together, it would have a -16 size penalty to AC.
    Well you never shown intrest in helping others before...
    News flash, Roy: Every quest we've been on has been all about YOU! "I want to beat Xycon, I want the starmetal. I want to bump uglies with the paladin."
    The proper term is "smite evil" not "bump uglies".

    Hey there, nice feat! That allowed you to be utterly ineffective twice in one round.! Congrats all around! ANd seriously, what's with the hat, man? Geez.
    To be fair, I always love it when roy smack talks.

    -Shadow Dancer- Screw this! I'm not getting rubbed out by magic-weilding hookers!
    -Dwarf Assasin- Must be some obscure prestiege class...

    I just want you, personally to know:If it weren't for teh threat to the entire world, I would tell you to shove your "blood oath" against Xycon right up your wrinkled, incorporeal ass.


    And my favourite of ALL time...
    I would just like to point out that my ghost will be both angry and vengeful, and will retain all my spellcasting powers.
