    How did Minmax manage to slice the back of whatshisface's thigh while being in front of him like that?

    It looks like he pulled the sword back out after blocking and releasing it so it was alongside his leg. Who had in turn turned into his own swing, exposing his back. Say what you will about minmax and his book smarts, this dude is honestly really smart at using his unique sword to great effect. Also, his name is bowst.

    What class is whatsherface (bunny dwarf elf)? I can't remember if it's been specified, but while Bowst is redundant with Minmax the rest could potentially make a Standard Four Person Adventuring Party.

    Also it might be time to get Minmax some level adjustment, everybody else seems to get one. +1LA in exchange for regaining literacy?

    (Also I wouldn't consider Minmax being really good with his special sword weird, anybody who has Weapon Proficiency: Furniture is probably pretty used to unorthodox combat.)

    No way PaletteSwitch can beat MinMax, unless that glass sword hold uncanny powers (unlikely).
    So we can wait for the match to be interrupted when the rest of the party meets.
    The only suspense here is whether MinMax will kill ScemoScemo before they can stop him or not. In other comics, the odds would be laughable, but in this one, drama reigns supreme.

    MM could hold his own against a Pit Fiend with the same equipment, so Bowst probably isn't much of a problem. I think the real issue here is Idle, aka the Chicken-Woman-Duck Thing, who can cast very powerful spells in exchange for dying and being immediately resurrected. If Bowst dies, and she believes Forgath is tough enough to survive because of his Klik body, she could probably nuke the corridor.

    On the other hand, MM is currently omnipotent, given that he is wearing a turquoise armour, and the door makes anything real, as long as it's said while touching turquoise.

    And we haven't yet seen what the door does, if someone says something while touching white.

    I absolutely expect Minmax to say something like "You'll kill her!" or "I won't stop until you're dead!" wihout thinking, which will then become true due to the turquoise armor.
    Also,with all the colored patches on Forgath, one of them might be considered turquoise (there's one on the left arm that might qualify, see here: https://www.goblinscomic.com/comic/page-6-2019). That could mean whatever Forgath says might also come true.

    Whichever way it goes, it will lead to Minmax and Forgath fighting. It's absolutely on par with the comic to cause drama through magic coercion that way.

    I think this is true, but that also means he might as well just die. What good does it do for the character to survive? We already have a dumb fighter boi. Bowst would contribute nothing whatsoever to the story.

    I had blissfully forgotten about the rape curse until Lvl 2 Expert regrettably reminded me of its existence, so my bet is that Bowst dies and then we'll have rape curse drama.

    But Boast is the one who needs to have daily sex or die. Idle just needs to die once a day (and I don't think 'the little death' counts )

    Which means Minmax can kill Bowst without consequences in the time it takes for Forgath to calm everybody.

    So, expect Bowst to touch the turquoise and scream "THEY ARE THE ENEMY!" to make it true and miserable. Got it.

    Lol, there are so many ways this could go wrong. Imagine Bowst suddenly realising his time is up and screaming "I must have sex RIGHT NOW!" and Idle jumping to the rescue. What follows are awkward and slightly disgusted looks from MM and Kin. Although this would give Forgath a chance to explain, which would be good... Except turquoise MM would say "no, you're not Forgath!" and much soul searching would ensue.

    Oh god, here comes minmax for round two before kin can explain. I just know it. She will figure it out, minmax will have already attacked, bowst and whatever her name is will counter and hurt kin who gets in the middle trying to stop this, and that whole mess will happen.

    I doubt. Both fighters are in a resting pose, it would require a negative INT stat to not get the hint that both are adventurers.

    Anyway, Bowstupid is the kind of person I would never be too tired to slap in the face. Every single time he opens his mouth, I lose sanity. Kudos for the characterization.

    I'll make another prediction. As Vinyadan pointed out, we haven't seen the effect of touching white yet. My guess is, it works the opposite of turquoise; meaning whatever you say while touching white becomes untrue. Idle has white skin. She probably counts as touching white all the time. All she needs to do is shout "Bowst, they're not our enemies!" to try and stop him from attacking again to magically (literally) turn them all into enemies.
