    Default OOTS #583 - The Discussion Thread

    Okay, I don't know why the Giant hasn't posted a topic about this yet... he can delete mine when he does.

    Anyways, wasn't that hilarious! I laughed so hard.

    IT'S A TRAP.

    Looks like Durkon has made one with the trees, for now.

    Ok who predicted that one ;D

    Definately not what I was expecting.

    There was a small clue on the previous on in that the tree seemed to move a bit closer to Elan in the end panels.

    That is the funniest thing I have read in a long time. Brilliant.

    Um ... was that just Elan being competent and sensible???

    Wondering what side of the bed I got out of today...

    I suppose it *is* a social situation and he is a bard.

    Same here, I hope Elan can convince her to stat good, even after what looks like a paladin ambush.

    Awesome comic, Mr. the Giant! I love Therkla's expression in the next to last panel! "Or, maybe, we could get pizza sometime." HAHA! Priceless!

    Epic. Win.

    OK. Therkla pulling a Heel Face Turn is good. The trees actually being evil is hilarious. Durkon apparently being in-panel the whole time elevates it to whole new levels of awesome.

    EDIT: On about 2.6 seconds reflection, this is obviously just the rest of the team with some sort of illusion. Note the reference to smiting Qarr, and the fact that they're wielding a katana (Hinjo), a spear (Lien), and a hammer & shield (Durkon, even more transparently present than the rest).

    Heh. Durkon and the rest keeping an eye out for Elan. I predict Qarr might actually get sent back to whichever lower plane Imps come from(been too long since I checked).

    I've never seen that before, I went from one page to another and the comic had changed. Nice little treat.

    Anyway agree with above, haven't really been a fan of the group on the ship but that was funny.
    I wonder, will there be an explanation of how they convinced Durkon to hide amongst trees, or will it be left for us to imagine?

    So Therkla wasn't trying to attack Elan... That's a point in her favour, I guess. She's starting to sound nicer ^^

    Surely I'm not the only person who's noticed one of the 'trees' is wielding a cold iron
    katana in the last panel. It's obviously Hinjo under an illusion. I'm willing to bet the tree with a spear next to him is Lien.

    Yeah, that's a pretty old D&D spell that turns a large number of people into the illusions of trees. Good for hiding an army real quick.

    I'm just surprised that no one said or did anything when it looked like Elan was getting a shuriken tossed into his face. I guess everyone else has a higher Sense Motive… no, Insight skill than I do. LOL!
    For another fantasy webcomic with Dungeons and Dragons, read Heroes of Lesser Earth now, before it becomes cool and everyone starts doing it!

    It took me a moment to figure out which tree was who, but when I did it became pretty funny. Though who's the one with the bow right behind Durkon?

    Oh, and as for why they didn't act before Therkla? She won initiative. Then she attacked Qwar, and they decided to wait a bit more before acting.

    That was great. I havent really laughed out loud at a comic in a long time before this. It was awesome.

    Anyway, anyone else realized that Elan said: «as my brother was»? It seems he really think Nale died in the castle explosion. I cant wait until he see him again.

    Pretty good. Yes I know i posted before, but that was cuz I thought that the previous comic was 583, cuz it just updated a few days ago. So I posted on the official 582 thread, about 582, looked at the threads, saw this one, thought is was abot the new one, re-posted my post about 582 onto this one, and then realized that the Giant put up a new comic while I was online, which was sweet.

    We were all TOTALLY wrong about the dagger and Shuriken. Kudos to Therkla for the turnaround! I cant wait for the smiting to begin on the little imp Nevermind*.
    The question is, how will Hinjo and Lien take Therkla? Durkon is a more generous and forgiving sort, but im not sure about the rest. Twelve gods be mnrciful to her

    In the last row, figuring out what happened was pathetically easy because of Durkon's little slip-of-the-tongue. But still, the Paladins' plan was a great one!
