    eek OOTS #440 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up, sorry again about the delay.

    This shouldn't affect Wednesday's comic, unless I get sicker again.

    Oh no he didn't.

    This solves an argument I was having with a friend of mine about whether or not the Death Knight was screwed.

    Gotta love comedy derived from wanton destruction.

    I'm glad the boring character's gonna get whacked. The whole gender-bender joke that is V's flat character's getting a bit stale. Unfortunately, the comic will also lose the only source of verbose word play.

    Why is it always the case that I want to see "the next strip" right away? You can't leave us like this all the time, Giant!

    Awww, man! I really liked that general guy! Then again, provided they win the battle, Azure city has the resources to cast some serious raise dead spells.

    "Flew the Coop" eh ? Could as well have been "Revenge of the Raven".

    Except that would have been less funny. So charisma really isn't V's strong suit. And the death knight got to show off both his fireball and CON drain abilities.

    Hey, shouldn't the raven be able to speak a language and not need the translation (unless it speaks elven in which case we still would)

    V can't die; the prophesy hasn't been fulfilled yet.

    But as the elemental outsider said, you'd be suprised what you can live through! I can't wait for the next page.

    So Haley named V's familiar? Reminds me of my current wizard where someone asked me what my familiar's name is and my response was pretty much "uh..." (then I hurried up and came up with a name :))

    Will the general come back?

    Speaking of raise dead I wonder how long it'll be until a oots member dies and is raised.

    ... idiots. You don't ask an undead to surrender. Why should you? Ah well. I'm very excited at what will happen further. An excellent job today. And I wish you a speedy recovery, Giant.

    Oh i've seen it. Familiars are intelligent creatures, and do have some measure of free will. They are not merely extensions of the casters will. I can and have overridden players attempting to do obviously suicidal things with animal companions, familiars, and paladin mounts in favor of the creature's self-preservation instinct.

    It doens't happen much. But it happens.

    Nice comic, BTW. I have to ask, does your own spell resistance apply if you drop a fireball at your own feet?
