    And new comic when The Giant gets around to it. Not that I can't wait.

    Think of it this way: Hopefully, now you get a dose of OotS for two days in a row :)

    Oh, and as someone noticed in the old thread, I really hope the reason is, that Rich is busy enjoying life rather than having another stroke of bad luck :)

    I second that notion. Comic writers should be excused from all bad luck, but then agian, that could make the comic less interresting. either way, it is better to not lose a beloved comic before his/her time. (just trying to be politically correct)

    I wonder how Haley will feel about Miko's battle plan? I'm guessing that since Miko won't want any of the loot, Haley will be thinking that she's got a pretty good thing going here. But maybe she'll be annoyed at Miko for not establishing the plan? Or annoyed at Miko for p'ssing off Roy? Then again, maybe she'll like Miko _better_ for that. Hmmmm.....

    Why wouldn't Miko want a share? She might not and probably wouldn't keep it but that doesn't mean she wouldn't insist on a fair share. Paladins tithe to the appropriate institutions and must maintain equipment and such. Miko most likely would give about half of her share to her lord or to the temple/charity/whatever. The rest would go to maintenance, training, new equipment, etc.

    As a matter of fact, most paladins will insist on receiving their fair share. Just because they're good doesn't mean they're going to give up their loot. Yeah, they have to tithe a bunch, but you can't tithe what you don't have.

    Now that we have a better idea of what Roy's personal ad would say I wonder what Miko's would say. Probably looking for someone who is honorable and is solely interested in smiting evil (not bumping uglies) relationship must remain plutonic in the interest for the greater good?

    Sorry, I'm sure you're right, perhaps I was thinking of Monks? I was remembering Miko's "Filthy lucre" comment, but I didn't remember all of it. :)

    I would just like to remind people that Rich doesn't get paid for this comic, unless we buy the books. Being on this site is free. Reading the comic is free. It's not exactly a high-paying job. In the last few months he's injured his wrist, been hospitalized, and had his home broken into. So don't whine when he's late with a comic. We should be happy that he does them as often as he does. And it is now time for the spate of bad luck to be over!! >:(

    Sorry, I just had to get that off my mind. :)

    All true but at the same time, to keep momentum going, Rich needs to update on a regular basis so that his audience doesn't succumb to ADD and wander off elsewhere. A day late isn't a biggie but I'm sure people have seen good sites fail from lack of diligence. I'm not saying that I fear this happening here, I'm just saying that human nature will cause people to move on if new material doesn't keep coming in.

    Well there is a 'paypal' buttuon on the site, if the readers feel so strongly about the comic that if it is more than day late they would leave it, they can use that and help support rich in anyway possible.

    I wasn't complaining, merely observing that it was past even the new "dateline" he set for himself, and a little bit of concern as to his wellbeing.

    Sidenote: Rich really needs to say "Rabbit Rabbit" each new month. I always forget to, but I try to remind myself to "Tibbar Tibbar" before sleeping.

    They have to tithe or give away most of it, don't they? Paladins aren't allowed to accrue wealth.

    Or did 3E get rid of that rule? Like it did with illiteracy.

    3E still has illiteracy. For barbarains only, though.

    There's no restrictions on paladin wealth, unless they have Vow of Poverty. ;D

    Easy explanation for the strip being late.

    I learned in Psych 101 that intermittent rewards are more effective than rewards that come on demand or on schedule. Basically, if the pellets dropped out of the tube whenever we expected them, we would become lazy and complacent rats. So, this is Rich's way of keeping us on our toes, a lean, mean, reading machine.
