    New comic is up.

    Ah, internal consistency. I've done that to my players before.

    "what happened to our horses?"

    "did you remember to tie them up at any point, feed them, brush them down, or in general do anything but ride them?"

    "no, but I don't see what this has to do with anything..."

    Great comic, Rich. Hope things are well for you! The wait is definately worth it.

    Edit: First page! Woot! A first for me.

    NEW COMIC INCOMING!

    How many times has this happened to our group? The druid has lost her horse, had to leave it behind, or had it die so many times that she refuses to get another on the grounds that it would be cruelty.

    And we're only, like.. level 5.

    What I do every time I see someone complain that their DM is a jerk just because some class/race/book/feat/etc. is not allowed at the gaming table.

    Great comic, Giant. You haven't lost your touch ;)

    Heh, looks like the DM realised that they weren't supposed to have those horses, and corrected the mistake.

    [edit] Yehaa! First time I ever made first page! :D

    call it internal consistency, reality backflow, or whatever... eveybody's been there, and to see it depicted in oots is just hilarious ;D

    it's funny because it is true...

    My dwarf cleverly forgot a pack horse with all his gold on it once. I was so distraught that the DM threw some role-playing XP my way....

    Had to sack a DM once for doing that to our party

    Us: "we tie our horses up for the night"

    DM: "what horses? you didn't say you were riding your horses when you left the citadel three days ago. They're still in the stables"

    Us: ::)


    EDIT: First and most likely last time my post will be as high as page 2. I believe "WOOT!" is the accepted expression

    Yeah, I know this! Last weekend, our party crossed the whole realm to get the the starting point of the new adventure and we completely cut out the part of careing for your mount:
    "You leave the city of Trallop, capital of the duchy of willows. After two weeks of travel, you reach the port-town of Perricum."

    Heck, we even cut out the complete voyage! :o

    Yay, been a long time since there was another wink to real life p&p mistakes that everybody makes. They were one of the reasons I liked OotS back in the days. (like #18 and #34)
