    Yay! New comic is up!

    I loved the brain map. I think I can safely translate Haley as "Ha Ha Ha" etc.

    Edit: Okay, someone else got the "Bwa" part. I think in the asterisks, she goes "*cough*". And I suck at cryptograms.

    I translate Haley as follows: "Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha..." and so on.

    P.S. Excellent comic, Giant. This explains how the condition is treatable by clerics, but still furthers character growth in Haley.
    a secret to everybody.

    As for Haley's speech, you forgot *snort*, I believe.

    Great strip. I love that there are areas of the brain devoted to Guacamole Recipes and Spoilers. And Haley revealing her secrets? I'm there laughing with her.

    That was good. Haley is about as "proper" as Britney Spears. What I want to know is: what does the unmarked brain section do? Is it related to toenail clipping?

    Thog's brain must be mostly puppies section. It seems to have enveloped his Sex sections, anyway.

    Heh, unable to be deceptive enough, yeah right! :P
    Let's see, she's been deceptive about her feelings towards elan, her desire to rescue her father, and the need for the money to use for that purpose. Yeah, no stress there... ::) ;)

    Awesome Comic Giant.

    Hopefully, they can cure Haley's speech problem now, if she's willing to tell all of her secrets.
    I'll find something to put here later.

    There is something really interesting about HALEY being the one suffering this condition. There used to be a school of science called Phrenology (if I recall correctly) that determined a person's criminal tendancies based on bumps on that person's head.

    Since she IS the rogue of the group... well, anyways, interesting comic... Vedddy vedddy interesting...
    Later!

    Ah, phrenology. One of the more enjoyable and interesting pseudosciences.

    I take it Thog's "Puppies" area has at some point taken over his "All Useful Skills" area? ;)

    EDIT: Yep, Blaznak, you got it right. And it was used for some even less reputable things as well...

    Uh...the word "phrenology" is directly used in the comic. So yeah, you recalled correctly.

    Ah yes, the plight of every sociopath in history. Well the plight of bad sociopaths anyway. Y'know the one's with a conscience.

    She's a got an impressive tally of confessions to make, that's for sure. Between the rapier room, the old stone trick and this whole big huge bribe thing...though I'm sure she won't get carried away in confession. She does have all that 1e rogue in here still.

    And with a little retrophrenology, she'll be good as new.

    And ironically, fMRI, a widely-respected imaging technique used in neuropsychology studies, doesn't differ that much (in abstract theory, at least) from phrenology. Except for the "changes in use --> changes in size of brain --> changes in size of head" bit, and when you have no nondestructive ways to look inside the skull, it's tempting to make that assumption.

    Seriously, Giant, I needed that. Esp. on a Monday. I don't usually comment (this is time #2, I believe) but I just wanted you to know that when life sucks I can usually go, "Hey, I haven't checked for the new OOTS yet!"

    Poor Haley - I wonder if she might pop into Room 115 to reveal at least one secret, only to find her dreams smashed by Elan?

    Then again, maybe its her father's fate she really needs to reveal. I suspect that is one loose thread that is going to play a role in the struggle to come.

    Great comic Giant; very fun!

    The last line of panels wasn't really nessessary. You know, since anybody would have reacted exactly like Haley did to that statement. ;)
