    Fine -- on power attacks -- chart reposted

    Actually power attack is a bit less useful than most people think... Power attack is worth it only if you do less than the following damage amounts(less than twice the damage amount on a 2 handed weapon)...

    We are talking here about a person with three attacks....

    Number to Hit on base attack, You cant hit for more than:

    10, 6
    9, 7
    8, 8
    7, 9
    6, 10
    5, 11
    4, 12
    3, 13
    2, 14
    1, 15
    0, 23.5
    -1, 24.5
    -2, 25.5
    -3, 26.5

    So, as a (almost) first post with content related to the comic, let me say this: this strip is pure gold!!!

    Every panel is worth several episodes of whatever web comic you can throw in, and every phrase just fit in.
    "We've found these stash'd under his hoard"
    "Typical, really"
    Just pure Gold, I say.

    Ho, and congrats to Rich for the right spelling of "hoard" ;D (see http://www.giantitp.com/cgi-bin/Gian...tscript?SK=131)

    The bottle of lube found with the dragon porn is especially inappropriate.

    Maybe a little starmetal goes a long way...kind of like the lube!

    A scary thought is that this "Young Adult" just might have a mummy or daddy (that being the "other" dragon that V spoke of) and either may be coming home soon :o And this in turn might lead to TOotS loosing the hoard as spoken of in earlier treads... :'(

    I thought about that, but surely the (young) adult magazines indicate that the older dragon hasn't checked on the hoard in a while, and so doesn't live here? Although I suppose the older dragon--which I will call Mother, since the defeated dragon mentioned one--could come to visit, or something.

    Anyway, we now know that the dragon preferred large tails. This might answer whether it had a crush on the small purple lizard. What'd you all think of V's tail?

    A site giving some text as well is here -> http://www.vikinganswerlady.com/hairstyl.htm

    But viking earspoons were might weapons in the art of love, as this quote from the page above hints at:
    It is reported in the chronicle attributed to John of Wallingford that the Danes, thanks to their habit of combing their hair every day, of bathing every Saturday and regularly changing their clothes, were able to undermine the virtue of married women and even seduce the daughters of nobles to be their mistresses2.

    A crush on the small purple lizard that it tried to eat?? *L* Besides - large for a dragon is most likely not lizardsize *G* Congratulations - you went mad in the end! ;D

    Well, I didn't really think it had a crush on the lizard, but some people suggested it as a possible reason why V was able to get that weird Suggestion past it. (And I meant large propotion-wise. Barbie is not human-sized, but she is still built.)

    At the same time, I wouldn't count the eating as anti-crush evidence. After all, we hurt the ones we love the most.

    Hmmm... Seem to recall a number of women being somewhat traumatized over Barbie's proportional built ;-) But kidding aside - yes, unfortunately we, being human, - (Belkar, no offence intended - manner of speaking and besides, you don't love anybody anyway *g*), have a tendency to hurt the ones we love... But in the case of Elan and Samantha, Elan saw this as his bardic duty and didn't (and still wouldn't) realize his actions hurt Haley. I think she really has a Herculese' labour set out for her if she wants him in a relationship *g*

    Excellent strip! Roy may still have hope. After all, he only needs enough starmetal to fix his sword. he doesn't actually need enough to have a new one forged. And as long as it is pure starmetal, then he may just have enough. ;D

    On this topic. What would happen if the sword was reduced in size by spell - repaired with the starmetal within the spells duration and then duriation expires?? I know it's a weird question, but I was just curious...

    Does Roy actually need the star metal anyways? It was Sabine in disguise who told him that at Nale's prompting. The real smith has no idea that Roy is even on this quest.

    Maybe the smith will be able to reforge it from the pieces, and adding a small amount of star metal is just gravy.

    Another great comic. I come for the humor ("Big Tailz") but I post for the appropriateness. As an amateur astronomer, I very much appreciate that the amount of starmetal that fell from the sky is realistic. I understand, of course, that were it determined to be humorous, Roy would've been squashed underneath eight tons of the stuff, but there's a large amount of satisfaction in seeing a "popularizer" getting it right. Thanks Rich.

    And I'll echo the many great panels in today's comic. Roy's sense of humor is astounding. "Typical, really." I can see the players cackling in the background as the DM presents the description of the findings with a big smirk on his face.

    Awesomeness.

    Thanks again,
    ~Neal
