    Default OOTS #253 - The Discussion Thread

    The new comic is up.

    For the record, with the new procedure of one-thread-per-comic, please don't start that thread until the comic is up. If anyone wants to complain about how late that comic is, start a "complaining about how late it is" thread, and leave the official comic thread to only discuss the actual comic when it materializes. Not predictions of what that comic will be, only reactions to what actually goes up. Thanks.

    I think the linear guild should kill overhyped pop culture figures more regularly.

    Ok, was that supposed to be Harry Potter? I've never read a single one of the books or seen the movie but somehow I got the impression it might be... ;)

    Edit:
    Ok, spoiler hidden.

    In the interest of keeping a secret that everyone probably already knows, my post is hidden, highlight to read:



    OMG No!!

    Now Voldemort is totally gonna rule the world. Nice going Thog.

    Hmm... I'm thinking Thog's battle axe might be a horcrux... nah...

    Hermoine would be a good anti-Miko character by the way. Both are headstrong and intelligent. Both have a deep respect for the rules. However, Hermoine wants to please everyone, whereas Miko prefers to carry out her duty (and should anyone stand in her way, she kicks butt without taking names). Oddly enough, Miko is my favorite OOTS character and Hermoine is my favorite H.P. character (well... besides Lupin).

    Actually... the anti-Miko would be Professor Umbrage (spelled wrong I think).

    So, contextually, "Stoppus Badguyus" means "Hold Half-Orc"? And I wonder if PotterGardener's spell failed because of the following law of the OotSverse:

    Oh, man. Oh, man. I hit the 'comics' link, then pulled up an AIM screen, and when something NEW popped up, I nearly shrieked.

    It really didn't help matters much that my AIM screen was covering the "Warthog's" head, so the first thing I saw was the bottom half of the top right panel... Harry Potter and Guy In Blue Robe.

    My first thought?

    "Oh my GOD, they're recruiting Harry Potter and Black Mage!"

    Then I pulled down the AIM screen.

    "Wow, no wonder we never saw Black Mage's face."

    Then I read the comic.

    "Aww. Well, they should still totally recruit Black Mage!"

    Nice. I actually like the books, and I still think this one's hillarious. [d&dnerd]Somebody needs some shorter command words for their wand of Hold Person. ;)

    Oh, and sorry about the thread I started.

    What on earth are you talking about?

    Thog clearly killed Larry Gardener at Warthogs, and that strip was obviously not related to any other popular fiction world in any way whatsoever.

    He's his own character, just like Sherry Bobbins, Ricky Rouse and Monald Muck.

    ;D

    Things in the OotS universe are exactly as they appear to be, until they aren't.

    Sorry, I meant "Lord Waldemart." :)

    Oh, and also I meant to say "Mermoine", "Rupin", and "Gumbrage" in my previous post. :)

    Personally, I thought the best part was Nale's explanation of 'tagonists. I thought that was very appropriate. The question I now find myself asking is, what kind of tagonist am I?

    Thank you Rich. There are times when I wanted to do that.

    Take that you overpriviledged jackass.

    Now, we just need Slitheryns that aren't all a bunch of back-stabbing, evil, incompetent (when not Voldemort or Snape) boobs.

    I would love to see "Ted" and "Forge" join the Linear Guild. You wanna talk about loose morals and a love for getting into trouble, heh. They always scared me the most.

    Of course, there all a bunch of evil, incompetent, inbred boobs.

    Unfortunately, there aren't enough Smite Evils in a Fist of Raziel to deal with all of them.

    Nah, they're totally going to recruit <obvious prediction deleted>. Anyway, let me just say

    Bwahahahahaha!

    A Potter parody might be just slightly dated (we know pretty much all the jokes already), but that doesn't make the little emo getting chop-sui'd any less funny.

    Also, Nale is now my hero after the "-tagonists" explanation.

    For an answer to that question, check:
    http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/yabb...691604;start=0

    If you answer any type of "Evil" You are probably an "AN" and if you answer any type of "Good" you are probably "Pro" <smiles>

    Oh and I thought the 'tagonist reference was a mistake. I read that sentence twice before going on just in case I missed something... Loved the comic!!! Love the Po.... errr Gardner too!

    It was really more of a redundant question, as I always figured myself Chaotic Good, and therefore pro. However, did enjoy the quiz and verified, yes, CG. A little shocked at the high number of LG and CE, as those are both extremes, but that is a thread of a different color.
