    Default OOTS #G004 - The Discussion Thread

    Issue #4 of Gygax magazine is out. (As it was with issues #1 and #2, I received my PDF copy before my print copy.)

    Issue #4 includes OOTS #G004, "Economy Size". A long-unseen character makes a return.

    Here's a link to the thread for OOTS #G003, "Reboot to the Face".

    I'm ashamed to admit, it took me a few seconds to get the punchline.

    Seriously, though, is wicker armor a thing? What source book is it from?

    After a quick Google search, apparently wicker armor was a thing in real life too. Weird.

    The rest of the strip was pretty funny as well, but that made my morning.

    Thanks for reminding me I needed to download the pdf. I'd forgotten to when I saw it in my email earlier.




    I sense trouble ahead...

    He's back!

    Given how often the Heavily Templated Snail retreats, I'm beginning to see him as the OotS' version of Cobra Commander: a completely inept villain with a much higher sense of his own accomplishments. In fact I read the Snail's lines from this issue in the late Chris Latta's Cobra Commander voice.

    After actively wondering whether the inflation in OOTS main strip was caused by adventurers or Vaarsuvius or simply willful ignorance over what in-game stuff should actually costs, I quite enjoy a little strip that highlights the difference between adventurer expectations and the in-game economy.

    Of course you realize it's a little much for the Order to get so much gold from a bored commoner with a rodent problem to begin with?
