    yuk OOTS #458 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is now up.

    I am going to try to reboot the server, since it is already being slammed before the comic is up. If the traffic gets bad, I may have to take the board down for a few hours again.

    Well, looks like we'll not be seeing Blackguard Miko for a while now, if ever.

    Ooooh, I really like these plot twists! First, Tsukiko gets out of harms way, then, LG executes their daring escape, setting up a board at another gate!

    Excellent! And showing the deepest understanding and respect of Nale's true motivations (to be expected from his creator, but anyway!).

    I salute you!

    Ahhh... This comic is made out of pure, unadulterated Win. Almost every other panel had me cracking out in laughter. It was well worth the wait.

    And I really love how this comic reinforces the point that Nale is a lot like his brother (with his ability to pay attention to Dramatic Conventions and awareness of Meta-Plot in action). In fact, Nale is probably more like his brother than he will ever care to admit.

    More later when the server isn't melting....

    Me love Thog.

    But hanging out with him is causing Nale's otherwise faultless grammar to slip. Shouldn't that be "we'll sneak off and capture another" rather than "we'll sneak off an capture another"?

    "My brother, his followers. . ."

    Does Nale actually believe that the others are following Elan? That. . . that could explain a few things. . .

    Awesome comic.

    W00T! The Linear Guild returns! And Nale's starting to learn from his mistakes. And Tsukiko's staying alive, Sabine and Thog are still hilarious, and Miko's going to remain in that creepy prayer-trance until the plot requires her again. Great!

    WOW -- she actually prepares SONIC spells... Redcloak really dropped the ball on this one... Even V, evo extrodinaire doesnt generally remember to prepare a sonic spell....

    Tsukiko really has a head on her shoulders -- and it is twisted without miko helping out.

    Well Redcloak can always say that the elemental was simply part of the extended interview process.
    One can't be too careful, and on a side note it's always nice to see Thog fulfill his dreams.

    Sabine: "I got lost when you mentioned 'Three-way'."

    Another great break from serious stuff. Yay Thog!

    Yay! The Linear Guild returns! Now we are REALLY moving the plot along...

    And yes, myeerah, very interesting that Nale thinks that Elan is the party leader... Naturally, he would, though, seeing as he is his twin and he couldn't POSSIBLY imagine being anything but the leader himself...

    Observations --

    Tsukiko's magic has switched eyes; the lightning bolt is being fired out of her left (light blue) side, yet the aura around her hand is dark blue. Compare 446 where she heals Xykon with a light blue, left side, presumably divine, spell. Conclusion? She's not just a necrophiliac - she's into domination as well.

    And speaking of eyes...Kidnapper guy might not be dead -- all we know for sure is that he's blinded in the right eye.

    Rules that supersede Rule 0:

    Rule -1: You're all there to have fun. The GM and the players should never do anything that would limit people's fun, for any in-game or real-life reason.

    Rule -0.5 (corollary): That means that if someone's fun is getting in the way of other people's fun, that person needs to change how they're playing.

    Nice, LG is back, yay for my stocks!

    As for Tsukiko, I thinking she sucks up to Xykon, then dies when he forgets about her five seconds later.

    Once again we find that named characters do not die easy. Watch the predictions of deaths in the future.

    And we say a fond farewell to LG for a score or so comics. We will not be seeing them again at this gate.

    Now we will be seeing Miko in action, probably shortly, maybe next comic. She may be breaking jail shortly, and maybe attacking anybody in reach.
