    You are a mean, mean DM writer. You do know this, right?

    Poor, poor O-Chul. Oh well, I guess Tsukiko will get her plaything after all.

    Well worth the wait.

    MitD never understood what the other three human skeletons were. This is Great. O-Chul probably remembers all that Belkar said as he threw him away too.

    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Okay, MitD is seriously badass.

    I can't think of ANYTHING in the d20 system that can stomp like that.

    ...maybe it's some sort of evil, undead, uber-Tauren...

    Aww Man I liked O-chul, I was really hoping that they would fix him (he's got to be sore from holding that position so long) but now it looks like he's screwed.

    I really do not understand why shot at in the first place... Pent up aggression?

    "Mr. Stiffy." and Roy getting shot in the Trouser Titan...

    She shot Roy so he would be pinned against the chasm wall, and thus would stop from falling. Then she got out her rope and tied it to him and pulled him back up.

    Now, I'm not complaining about it, as I understand it's comic/DnD/plot-physics and thus cannot be explained and doesn't need to be realistic, but...

    There's no way that an arrow through the nuts would be able to suspend Roy's entire body, especially if he's wearing medium/heavy armor. And I'm not sure if the arrow could even pierce the apparently rockey wall(and it if was dirt, it'd just give anyway).

    I'm just being nit-picky here, so don't take me too seriously. It's mostly in good fun. Fantasy physics can overcome any obstacle!

    I laughed until my eyes teared up at the arrow to the nuts. Haley may have taken the ranged pin, but it's just as likely there was a sudden rules lapse in favor of the plot. We'll have to see. That was one of the funniest Damn OoTS comics out there, it deserves a medal. I've only laughed that hard at I think 3-4 other comics, and most were within the first 150.

    There's a feat in the Complete Warrior called Ranged Pin that allows exactly that.

    Regarding the first part, presumably Roy has armor protecting his groin? So the arrow pierced the armor as well as Roy's body. That's what's holding him up.

    The second part is easy: magic arrow. Magic arrows can penetrate rock.
