    Default OOTS #326 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    I'm going to go right to work on a new comic for Friday evening/night, too, since I want to get three out this week, what with the Origins convention next week.

    Wow. Very nice.

    I liked the comments when they were chopping the heads, especially.

    LOL I LOVED it... I actually figured on the first part, but the last panel blew me away.

    Very good. Loved it (in a game I had characters versus a hydra that though in a similar way).

    Either folks don't eat many hydra heads, or one all-you-can-eat session costs a ton of gold.

    ... that, or the hydra is now some several orders of mangitude more heads than it should... :-/

    Excellent extra twist to the hydra problem. Made me think of Sarimner from norse mythology. Good business case for Goblin Dan...

    That was nicely done Rich. Although now I'm afraid of having nightmares about Robespierre-Belkar.

    To big for its blood supply to support!

    (though isnt that being rather logical for a creature as magical in nature as a hydra?)

    LOL

    I've never before thought about making a profit from the evergrowing hydras heads!

    As a biologist, I can't help but wonder at the sheer amount of food they must serve the hydra - it is using a freakish amount of energy to grow heads that fast ;D

    oh.... wait... this is D&D? Well must be magic then ;)

    Nah, he still would have gone for his revenge on Xycon.
    Though Haley might have left the group for the profits she might get.
    And on another note, great comic.

    thanx to Abardam for these fantastic Erfworldstyle sigatars
    For the awesome 'The Wolf'-sigatar I thank Sampi.

    Gah! I saw that goblin and thought this was going to tie into the Xykon storyline somehow. Cruel Giant, just cruel. :(

    What actually happened was still pretty hilarious though, if a bit of a non-sequitur...and am I the only one who felt a little sorry for the hydra? I mean, tied down and endessly having body parts chopped off for monsters to much on? :D

    Edit: W00t, second page! (or whatever the popular expression is...a first for me anyway. I guess it pays to stay up till 3AM.)
    Google query for the Giant's posts, for those of us who think they're way more interesting than yet another speculation thread but don't have time to read every thread on the forum to find one he's posting in.

    I had my suspicions that the hyrda would be defeated that way. Still a hilarious comic. Especially the Robespieree bit.

    I was hoping for a Herakles kind of solution. This one I didn't like personally, it is absurd. But the last picture more than made up for it.

    Yup, called it. Not so much the lack-of-blood, but definitely a too-many-head defeat.

    And the BBQ Hut? Priceless. :D
