    Default Things You Never Noticed VII: Wait, This Isnt the MitD Thread?

    This is a thread for posting anything and everything you might have not noticed your first time around, or even consecutive readings in the Order of the Stick Comic series! This could be a small realization like that Belkar has hair on his head and feet, or a huge revelation of some sort. Big or Small, we'd love to hear from you! Needless to say, there's gonna be spoilers if you aren't up to date.

    Durkon is acrophobic, given both his expression in the Wind Walk in book 4 and the end of the last bonus strip in book 6.

    Which may be explained by the first strip of book 6.

    Also #887 panel 3. The others know him well enough to incorporate his fear of heights into their shared illusion.

    In comic 1179, the two priestesses holding up the shower curtain are the priestess of Hermod (in a blindfold) and of Hoder (who is blind). Nice touch for privacy.

    Also one of the high priests playing cards with the high priest of Loki is the HPoFreyr, and Freyr is the God of Prosperity, who voted No since "there's no profit without a little risk". Makes sense he'd be willing to take a risk by playing with a priest of Loki, eh?

    And speaking of votes, the only votes that actively suck in #999 are Fenrir, Balder, and Njord - all the others have at least some reasoning.

    Fenrir's makes sense. He likes killing, so let's get the killing started.

    Well "sense" as in "not entirely apathetic to the mortals", really.

    I feel like it would have been a better idea to use the priest of Vafthrudnir instead of the priestess of Hermod. The god of secrets can probably be trusted with people's privacy.
    Unless he's one of those gods who sell secrets.

    Yeah, but he's a dude. Besides, if this was being 100% logical then they wouldn't have the high priestess of Njord being used as an impromptu shower head.

    Very true.
    They have a tub, it seems like baths would be a lot easier to do than showers.

    So how many of you also didn't notice that the HPoNjord is also blindfolded?

    Is the name of this thread too long for it to hyperlink properly to the new post? Looks like that's happening to me...

    I think it’s because of the apostrophe. Guess that’s something about hyperlinks you didn’t notice before.

    What may or may not be some light foreshadowing:

    Read panels 2 and 3 here and then the last page and a half of this.

    It leads to a ledge, which he is presumably trying to get on. The panel showing him falling doesn't have that, but that could be an art mistake.

    Not something I never noticed before, but something that bugs me out EVERYTIME I read it...

    In #297, when Roy gets his sword reforged, the blacksmith talks about 'a green aura that's harmful to undead'. She then starts to talk about counteracting it... Why would anyone want to counteract this?

    Probably because right before that, Roy was like "oh not another unforeseen side effect of something that would have been otherwise entirely positive". When he realizes he was wrong, he quickly changes his tune.

    I think that it’s because it’s not just undead, only particularly, while we never see it it is possible that it is also harmful to Roy and so you might want to not get that.

    Are undead universally considered evil, super bad things in the OotSverse? I presume so, considering that outside of the Godsmoot, undead are treated with hostility at best by most people.

    Maybe the blacksmith is neutral and doesn't judge.

    It would be an alteration to how the sword previously worked, where Roy wanted it restored to original condition. Simple miscommunication of expectations.

    Seems obvious, but it's the sort of foreshadowing you can't keep in mind waiting for releases week to week: Durkon begins formulating his plan to oust Durkula in panel 25 of #963. I always just thought that was a comedic pause, but he's internalizing that the vampire can't recognize connections between his memories, and pivots to a joke on the spot so he can figure out what to do with the single weakness he's discovered.
