    There's a new comic and a new blog post.

    Previous update was on December 1, it is now december... 29th.
    28 days since the last one.
    That makes update number 15 of the speedy schedule and 1 update that takes a month.


    Not sure what this means. It's been a month, which is hardly speedy, but it's not as bad as we are used to. Possible that this has raised enough money to do the voice surgery, so no need to work anymore. Could also be that she decided to cancel her surgery, since I haven't really heard much about it for awhile and she... seems to be more comfortable with her voice? Hard to tell, given her wild mood swings. Gonna have to take a wait and see on this.

    As for the update. Kinda confused. I think Complains tore the horn off? An unarmed attack seems unlikely to do enough damage to take a piece of horn though.

    For the new blog.. I don't see any indication of it being taken down... There was a mention that a bunch of corrections were made to the page, so the page had time to be replaced, at least, so... maybe?

    considering the horn cut is flat and not shattered, i suspect it was cut off by the sword. My bet is he grabbed onto her horn, used the momentum to swing in the direction of the wall, and cut the horn off with his sword in order to head in the direction he wanted to go.

    does kind of look like she moved her head out of the way though, so it might be that he intended to attack her, but she tilted her head out of the way, so he took a consolation prize in her horn, and focused on escaping instead.


    To be fair to the update speed, it's December, holiday month. a lot of people are either really busy or decide to take it easy during that period of time.

    Am I the only one that noticed that the lever was lowered down by the angel? It was just three strip ago...
    I know, it could go back to the initial potition by itself, but there was no indication of such feature...

    there are two levers. the one to her left kills you, the one to her right sends you home. She flipped the one on her left, Complains flipped the one on her right.

    She really is kinda bad at her job. Now im picturing thaco and ears going there and she gets progressively angrier and angrier and eventually it turns into less of a character test that they cant possibly win and becomes straight up "IM GONNA SMITE THE NEXT JERK GOBLIN THAT SHOWS UP!!!" Then it turns out to be big ears and it fails because you cant smite evil a paladin. At least not a good one.

    Okay, that was hilarious. I love the idea of the Angel just being kind of incompetent. Probably why she got stuck on this lousy job in the first place.
    Some people think that Chaotic Neutral is the alignment of the insane, but the enlightened know that Chaotic Neutral is the only alignment without illusions of sanity.

    I'm vaguely worried actually, is it two more goblins, plus a gargoyle piece? That would actually be interesting, the gargoyle, I mean.

    Or he just realized that pulling that lever was the only victory condition that mattered.

    I think he wanted both to escape and to strike at this symbol of everything he hates about the world and how it treats him and his kind. There is no way he was faking that rage. The very idea of an angel of his own god treating him so dismissively, like some high level adventurer who doesnt even see him as worth consideration, made him enraged. But he also isnt a mindless berserker so he knew he had to escape as well. So he gave her a good slash with his sword and took the exit.

    I like your version better. He got what he could, then hit the victory condition. You are correct, that was not fake rage.

    I think I understood why I find Idle laughing distressing:
    Https://www.goblinscomic.com/comic/11142015-2

    https://youtu.be/iJn1r5qXscE

    However, there are other cases in which a Goblins character showing enthusiasm looked nightmarish to me; one with MM in particular stood out to me.

    Complains is smart enough to develop and follow new strategies even while raging, and this looks like another example of that. He charges at the angel intending to hurt them, comes up with a better idea along the way, and contents himself with a symbolic attack.

    I'm looking forward to Big Ears' turn with the angel, but I'm also dismayed that, in the Goblinsverse, even the forces of good operate according to pointless and contrived rules.

    And we kick the year of 2021 off with a reformation of the Goblin faith.

    What a nice and fuzzy feeling this one gives.

    And here we go, big ears is going to bump the now higher clocks with the horn and appear HOLDING HER HORN TIP in front of the now cheesed off angel. This is going to be fun. Wonder if he will have a crisis of faith over this.

    Back when that comic aired, I figured that he used the horn tip as a way to make her "touch" the lever as he was pulling it down, under the assumption that only her was able to make it move.

    I hadn't noticed it either, and I re-read the comic this Christmas. From what I can tell it happened during the "lol pearl" incident, so for about 4 years I guess.

    Wasn't it already compromised by the fact that BE's a paladin and the moment he stepped in Hell, he'd be swarmed?
