Glad to have a place to discuss this with people who aren't ignorant on how people (especially women) work when it comes to feelings and priorities.

I still haven't forgotten the speculation on Laurin and her favor/feelings about Julio over in the GitP forums.

Durkon's kinda turning into another Villain Sue, where everything just naturally seems to go his way and he easily overcomes practically every obstacle thrown in front of him.

I mean I get that it can't all come crashing down right as things are building up, it's just a bit painful. Zykon's probably one of the worst Villain Sues out there (amusing as he is), this comic really doesn't need another.

Well played you bitch.

You know, this is why I like this comic so much. Like many web comics there are things to learn out of actions, violent or not. But the better ones show what happens if you rely on outrunning problems like our adventurers here have done for quite a good bit of the comic.

Also the post-killing-your-nemesis meal.

Haley's gotten to have that one twice, come to think of it.

ID: 63a19  No.2416

Man, people are still whining Haley did the wrong thing in killing Crystal (again)? I get she betrayed her and dumped her into a volcano after defusing hostility, but was it evil or lawful? Hell no, she needed to get tagged again after declining Haley's out and being lawful is irrelevant to Haley morally, pragmatically, and responsibly. Heck, the lawful entity (the DGS officer) signaled the execution. She went along with the plan, one that ignored Due Process because the threat wasn't one the authorities were capable of containing. Nor capable of executing properly since the Electric Chair would make the convict in question into a super-powered psychopath that can turn buildings into artistic masterpieces depicting Swiss Cheese.

I guess that's what happens when you rely on the D&D alignment chart on a web comic, and forget you've probably dealt death wholesale in whatever sessions you played without a thought about it. Remember, staying to your code is fine and all but even Paladins have to think outside the box from time to time if they intend to carry out their duty with the least amount of casualties or the least amount of compromise for the forces of evil. They need only minimize these shortcuts and make up for it elsewhere if they wish to avoid a trip to the church for a redemption spell.

Yes yes, there are DMs out there who are more rigid than the paladins. But that DM better be worth his salt elsewhere behind the screen or else you are playing with a terrible one.

One could argue using 'Feels' as a noun would be out of place in this setting, but another would argue that so would all the pop culture references. Heck, Xykon did so when he was testing out the reverb of his then-new lich voice in SoD.

Which, to hazard a guess, is probably the same case with Durkon and Malack.

One thing to note is that Hoder was a god who was tricked by Loki to kill his brother who was invulnerable to anything but mistletoe (eventually he himself was slain by the other gods for killing their crash test dummy). If Rich is using Hoder, I'd be disappointed if the HPoH doesn't use trickery of his own to get what he desires from them.

Well Durkon's inner hollow isn't helping since he takes up panels instead of thought bubbles. Rich could just make Durkula's thought bubbles greyed out and Durkon's thought bubbles as normal but it would still take too much panel space to see anything else.

Add in the fact that this is going into a book and Rich just has to throw his hat at innovating art design. Best he can do is just dedicate the space to them instead of fiddling with room.

Well actually it's because they already discussed this prior to Bozzok unleashing the metaphorical hound on Haley. And it was Haley who suggested winter clothes and Elan who thought Durkon would cast endure elements. So it was an inconsistency fix.

If I had to guess, they'd take pictures with all the other clerics to be put in their divine picture books like a high school reunion. After which the building is demolished, and a sign is erected in it's place to mind any persistent spells that remain on that spot…possibly another to tell kids to eat their veggies since clerics are so influential.

At least, I'd see that going down in Rich Burlew's world.

ID: a3923  No.3150

It would be a shame to demolish it. They didn't just construct a building, they carved it from within the mountain. It would also look unsightly to tear it down too, at the risk of that having a flat top.

I'm betting on flea market or dwarven cafeteria.

I guess I'm just fed up with all the nitwits constantly trying to optimize a story instead of a game, comics like this and prequel would be boring as hell if they did the same thing we constantly do to get ahead while minimizing effort and strife in the process.

Two negative levels per slam must suck.

Of course, there is a bit of a problem. Does Durkon have a coffin within a day's travel? Because vampires are notoriously hard to put down for good if they do. 0 hit points, gaseous form, go back to bed.

Another thought. If he's in gaseous form, does he still count as being there for the Godsmoot?

ID: 63a19  No.3852


He likely doesn't have a coffin. Too suspicious to have one built since he lead them to believe he intended to be resurrected.

Weapons of Legacy were featured in The Tome of Battle (Book of Nine Swords). It's basically a weapon that you do quests to form a bond to and it gets more powerful as you level up and do the tasks.

It ususally comes at a trade of attack rolls, a saving throw, and hit points for a wide variety of abilities.

Judging by Roy's temperment and what happend, it might be similar to The Blade of the Last Citadel

His characterization lately seems to be that he pretty much thinks of everything, but that this does not render his decision making infallible.

It's an interesting characteristic, actually. It's very tempting (or an unconscious flaw) for a writer to have the protagonist only make mistakes based on lack of information, lack of foresight, or events beyond their control. Having the hero basically say "I thought of that but made the wrong decision" is kind of refreshing, especially in the face of some of Burlew's other writing quirks.

Heh, this reminds me of how "the mythical underwater campaign" is a running gag in my gaming group.

I've also heard of warforged who specialized in ocean floor travel, with bodies meant for enduring the crushing pressure and mobility to traverse with the least impairment from the gravity that be.

Personally, I find the issue with underwater campaign is that even with all the inclusion of materials and background to make it possible, it lacks a common thing that has solidified campaigns that take place with at least two feet on the ground: pop culture inspiration. Sure we have the likes of Aqua man, but in the big picture the doings of underwater aren't relate-able in fierce and glorious means unless it's on a boat, and modern concerns for it are usually environmentally involved.

Depends if it gets them into town instead of sustaining too much damage to even get repairs should they turn around to get out (while already deep in).

Also went on the forums to see the discussion over it. People as usual forget that being good means bisecting Andi isn't an option. If you ask me, all the crew members will still get paid EXCEPT for Andi, who's pay will instead go towards paying for a healer for Bandana (who will probably have to wear a bandana over her head for the lump that will briefly occur). It seems the most rational for a Lawful Good take for failure due in part to insubordination.

I swear, Elan better pull a Sephiroth on her if Roy inevitably fails at whatever diplomatic opportunity this repressed fit of gender bias brings up.

I'm guessing star-struck is more akin to the swirly eyed variety than it is the swirly star variety.

Well it wasn't the aeris re-hash I was hoping for, but it was still pretty bad-ass by Elan standards.

They are ignoring that, Since it's the safest room in the building, that's where all the dwarves are holed up.

Assuming Thor managed to get word out to the other clerics anyways. I'd assume the high priests are the ones who the gods communicate through to the rest of their clergy and I'm pretty sure the summit they are currently in is stil blocking telepathic communication.

Then again, Lord thyrmm managed to get a bunch of frost giants to throw boulders at the Mechane so it's possible they do in fact know.

No, I mean as a standard safety drill. "If monsters attack, book it to the temple of Thor"

This seems to be a pattern, the context of their dialogue relies on reference of the lives of their captives while their motives are not. It is like the opposite of a moral event horizon, where the character would change his/her outlook on an ultimate event yet instead of the character themselves taking up this change someone else hijacked their pivoting moment and is now riding them as a back seat driver.

I see it more as they see the events but don't have any empathy so they can only guess at the reason for the events

Well he's getting craftier with his memory usage, that's for sure.

…Not sure what the vampire has against smell of refuse though, typically the vassal of plague and death tends to be immersed in the smell of recently purged bowels from the death that caused it (provided there is still a body to provide that refuse).
