    Durkon's mom is awesome!

    Minrah's mom need to lay off on the passive-agressive!

    Thanks for the comic, Giant! We love your stick figures!

    I wonder what plot significance those 5 sandwiches will have. And how long before someone suggest Redcloak's niece is one of them?
    Ever wondered how many games are mentioned in the comic? I have listed them all in a geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2...es-order-stick

    The smile on Sigdi's face in the last panel is all the resolution I needed for this "arm regeneration problem". Wise.

    That's pretty much what I'd expect from Sidgi.

    The strip raised a question for me, however, not about the story, but about the game. When a chopped-of member is regenerated, wha happens to the part that was cut? Does it dissolves magically? Does it remains and decomposes the usual way? Is it possible for someone with Regenerate to leave a trail of hands or arms that all belong to the same person? What kind of silly and horrible trail would that be?
    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles don’t hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, can’t be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    Not surprising, after 50 years of thinking a certain way, it's hard to steer the train of thoughts onto a new track after only a handful of minutes.

    Don't be silly, Redcloak's niece isn't a sandwich. Now, Minrah herself on the other hand...
    How to turn off these annoying sigs:

    1. Edit your profile options.
    2. Scroll down to "Thread Display Options".
    3. Uncheck "Show Signatures".
    4. Save changes.
    5. Enjoy a much less cluttered and noisy forum.

    As practical as she is, Sigdi is still... person-like. (What? I couldn't say "human.") Afraid and skittish when real change possible. She'll have to relearn and unlearn a lot when, or should I say, if she decides to let Durkon regenerate her lost arm.

    Thanks for the comic! It's cool that we get such a wide array of facial expressions in this one.

    I really like Sigdi, she'd make a good paladin -but
    Happiness is [..] na fer us.
    - that's just sad. Dwarfish society seems to be so focused to please a higher being, to be responsible for others, that any personal wishes are seen as unhealthy. Now Hilgya's behaviour looks more reasonable in comparision - it is not moraly excusable, but it is more understandable. Especially if there is no middle ground for Dwarves between Loki and Thor.

    Ah, it's always fun to see clerics make it abundantly clear they're speaking literally.

    More importantly, I wonder if Minrah met Tenrin during her stint in Valhalla, and that's how Durkon knows Tenrin isn't still holding that hand.

    Minrah turned back while still on the Rainbow Bridge, she never got into Valhalla. Durkon knows Tenrin isn't holding Sigdi's hand because:
    1) the hand isn't in Valhalla.
    2) That would be kinda daft and that's his point here.

    Now us forumites can finally stop worrying about Minrah getting ganked by Curly and turned into a vampire before she got back to the Order. Or getting kidnapped by Sabine and used as the IFCC's vessel. Or dying in a spontaneous underground landslide. Or something.

    I'd be disappointed if at least a couple people didn't propose the theory that this is actually someone else shapeshifted into Minrah's form, though .

    This proves nothing. What if she’s an illusion?

    A theory that is ostensibly possible but is in no way supported by the text, adds nothing to the narrative, and would just needlessly clog an already stuffed-to-the-brim main plot?

    Now that's the GiTP forum posts I know and love. Keep 'em coming.
