    frown OOTS #983 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    EDIT: I don't know why the sidebar can't handle an apostrophe all of a sudden, but the intended title is "A Healer's Reason."

    I like how he's still struggling on the breathing. :P I wonder if his mom is still alive? I can't remember if it's been mentioned.

    I know nothing of web programming, but you could copy the apostrophe in "The Duke's Wolf" link under Stories and see if that'd work. Perhaps?

    Hmm. Was the High Priest specifically looking for memories that might be relevant to why someone wouldn't have a limb regenerated, or is this part of Durkon's new plan to confuse him? The plot thickens.

    Also, it's interesting that H-Poh is still trying to justify his puppetry of Durkon. I wonder if that's going somewhere?

    Great comic, Giant. I find it hilarious that Roy expressed the exact opinion as many of the forumers.

    Good to know that dwarven society (or at least Durkon's mom) are open to homosexual relationships. Makes me wonder if Durkon hasn't shown a preference at this point in the story. Or if maybe he has and he's into both.

    "’" is a unicode right quote rendered in ISO 8859-1, if you type an apostrophe in Notepad or something it should work.

    Did you paste the title from Microsoft Word? That's usually the culprit.

    Awww, poor Sigdi. It's cool to see Durkon's reasoning for becoming a Cleric. Also, nice of Roy to answer the forum's question.

    Amused greatly by that little bit at the end there. That basically sums up any argument where someone is trying to twist words so it's the victim's fault.

    Awww, that one was kind of a bummer. Though the implication that Sigdi is still alive is interesting; while there's no real reason given dwarven life spans that she wouldn't be, I had kind of gotten that impression from Durkon's memories somehow.

    And the HPoH sure likes to blame everyone but himself for his actions, doesn't he? I wonder if that's just because he's a jerk, or whether it might actually be going somewhere.

    Check this game out! Or at least give it a thumbs up.
    Why "because the plot said so" is not a good answer.

    Probably because the memories have very nostalgic feel to them, and it's easy to forget that Durkon isn't all that old by dwarf standards.

    Its really sad thing, but i don't know if she would take the help even if he could give it.

    Also, this conversation kinda reminds me of mine with my parents especially the part about find the right gal or guy and settling.
    Thanks to linklele for the amazing avvy.

    No, I typed it in a plain text file in TextEdit, which is the Mac equivalent of Notepad.

    However, after Googling, it looks like the version of TextEdit that ships with Yosemite now includes smart quotes even in "plain" text files. You have to turn it off in three separate places to get them to use the plain old single quote. Should be fixed in a moment.

    EDIT: Yup, fixed.

    Yes, Word (unless the option is turned off) will make the quotes "smart" and curl them to surround the text (for double quotes) or just curved for the apostrophe. Typing & Copy/paste from Notepad is a solid suggestion.

    Should that be "one priest", not "once priest"? Surely she's still a priest.

    So happy to see that dwarves are accepting of different sexualities! I run a game where most of the gnomes are queer, and it's nice to see that so many other fantasy worlds can reflect the way the world should work

    I got the feeling he was just saying that to try to mess with Durkon. Also, maybe the HPoH wants to go to the temple of Odin for some reason?

    And wow, I saw this comic almost as soon as it was updated. That's new.

    EDIT: Well, half an hour after updating. Still fast for me.

    Also, love how soon this one came up.

    Clearly this is Roy's fault. If Roy hadn't favored evil Belkar over good Miko then Miko might still be alive and member of OOTS, and Miko would not have allowed an evil vampire to manipulate OOTS to doom the dwarf kingdom.

    Her clan isn't likely the same as Durkon's, ergo they could have different customs.

    It depends on the clan. They just do their duty.
