    Honestly, if the Giant abandons the main plot to just tell jokes about these northern bugbears and their world-weary animal companions, I'm down. I'm totally 100% down. I for one welcome our new warg overlords.

    I really like the light being shown to contrast bugbears and owlbears. Also, I learned a new word today: elide.

    "Grim specter of noogie hangs like shroud over us all."

    Greyview continues to impress with his wisdom. Also, is it just me, or is Oona coming off as being a little bit dumb?
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    Nibolgs are so rare that apparently they only show up when you google image them. There is not a single written page about them in all the internet. Poor saps.

    So... which monsters do have "trenchant political analysis" as a special attack?

    Trick question! It's a special quality that improves INT-based skill checks!

    I love the MitD lines there. And the roaches. And the worg. And Oona . . . ! Frickin' awesome.

    And an excellent comic it is! Feels a bit more politically observant than I'm used to, and I'll say no more on that subject since there's probably a rule about it.

    Also, Greyview continues to bring welcome snarks. He sort of reminds me of Haley's angst projection, just in terms of line delivery. And unexpected noogies are certainly a fate to prepare for, unwelcome as they will always be. Especially from a bugbear...

    Tangentially, Oona is especially amusing to me since my first ever boss fight in D&D was against a bugbear. Leading a group of orcs rather than other goblinoids, oddly enough. It was still in that stage of D&D experience before you've grown weary of creative plans and gained awareness of the tactical efficiency of more conventional combat methods, so we ended up beating him by luring him into a trap we'd bypassed earlier in the dungeon.

    I am facing a dilemma, because I have the urge to include a Greyview-inspired character in a game now but I'm not creative / depressed enough to come up with appropriate dialogue.

    The solution of course is for Greyview to become a main character and supply us with more lines.

    Bugbears have always felt rather superfluous to me, I won't lie. Goblinoids rival elven subraces in sheer questionably-necessary variety.

    interesting strip. I am not sure how much it advances the plot.

    Once thing for sure, it is does admit that bugbear like owlbear don't feel like real monster race like an orc or a goblin does.

    Nibolg (formal taxonomic name Nibolg Omeh) is a cross between a Firbolg and a Reverse Vampire.

    Somehow, I don't expect the phrase containing that word to show up in Gobotopia's textbooks.

    Defenestrate is one of the few rare words I learned from a comic before I saw it in D&D. Thanks, Questionable Content!
