I didn’t know that Payet had the Pickof Destiny…
I thought he was the prick of destiny.
He probably THINKS he has the Prick of Destiny.
Then, instead of “Master Exploder”, would Best sing “Master Debater”?
FIGHT THE POWER!
Row Row Fight Da Powah?
It’s not the “to” that matters.
It is the “from” that is important.
Rincewind would be proud…
But Byron is still wearing his shoes.
I knew Best was gonna do something awesome. He knows how to have fun. 8-) ROW, ROW…
Best needs the shades.
…FIGHT DA POWAH.
Annnnd…. now I’m hearing the track from my Power Puff Girls CD…
i’m hearing super mario theme. bouncing effect included.
I can just hear Row Row Fight the Powah now, thanks to Best
With that YEAAAAAAAAH how can anybody, ever, possibly be hearing anything other than “Won’t Get Fooled Again”?
I was definitely hearing that too. Only Horatio himself could have pulled off that one-liner better.
Naw, Byron isn’t wearing a dress. Nor a pointy hat.
Alt text win.
Lynxx (whisper): LOL nub buy from vendor in dalaran.
Do people still hang out in Dalaran or what’s the new Portalhub/Neutral City?
I’d really hate Dalaran to become just another whatsitsname. You know. The Outlands one.
no clue. i stopped playing since Wrath.
1. Byron looks like a deformed muppet in panel 1.
2. Payet just destroyed one of his precious book shields against the golems.
3. You mean landing isn’t included in the bounce? Defective potion.
I really love what direction the drawing style is going in.
FIGHT THE POWER!!!
Uff. I don’t. Manga overload, esp. in the first and last panels. Does GA have to go in that direction?
It’s not a direction, just a lulzy “pit stop”.
I agree, I think it’s a choice made because of the slightly ridiculous tactics being used. Also, we’ve done the “watch the party scramble desperately” done in “serious style” art. Now it’s time for “desperate scramble Bugs Bunny style.”
“Here’s the plan: You run around to draw their fire, and you jump on them. I’ll be over here playing the “Benny Hill” theme.”
Hah! That plan wins hands down. :D
Whaaaaaat? That’s not “Manga” style. Jeez, Catbus, you see Eastern influences everywhere. You’re worse than McCarthy. (CHINA IS COMMUNIST SO THAT JOKE COUNTS, DARN IT.)
Every single panel would make an awesome t-shirt. (especially best saying “fight the power”)
Not the books! NOT THE BOOKS YOU DAMN IDIOT! D:
Yes, how sure are they that the Basin of Foresight isn’t just another name for a bunch of books? Books can yield knowledge, knowledge can yield a degree of foresight. Wouldn’t be the first time the ‘magical’ treasure turns out to be something rather mundane. Well, maybe it would be for Best.
Or, “The Basic of Foresight” could be the title of a book…perhaps one that Best just mangled…
I agree. What a dick.
Keep your shorts on, there’s plenty more where those came from.
I’m hoping that the Basin of Foresight is a toilet. An old, dirty, clogged toilet. It’d explain why the elves didn’t take it with them.
Obviously shit-elf handiwork at its Best…
I dislike anime byron in panel one >:(
Yeah, where’s the hentai Byron ffs. >:-|
Hentai Byron is busy bottoming to Hentai Gravedust.
What anime? That looks like Sergio Aragones.
It’s more like Comic Strip Byron
Dude, that’s classic American comic strip style. It’s as Western as blue jeans and apple pie.
It was Gummi Berry Juice, wasn’t it?
Clearly if Blizzard became Hurricane and Azeroth became Arkerra, the Rabid Thistlebear had to turn into something…
Best doesn’t have eyes in that last panel…
That’s either a really good touch ac or a pretty decent reflex save Byron’s got.
Barbarians don’t usually wear much armour, and instead tend to pump Dex and Str (temporary hit points can easily replace Con), so it’s probably both.
Uncanny dodge obv.
I heard the CSI Miami thing at the end there “YEAAAAAAH” half expected best to put sunglasses on
Best smote the book on distractions.
Ugh! That joke should be struck from the records!
Indeed, we’ll have to throw the book at him.
Perhaps we should shelve this discussion before it gets worse.
After all, the jokes are clearly getting far too wooden.
Dewey really need to continue this line of thought?
Yes please stop before someone’s spine gets broken.
Or beaten to a pulp.
apologies…all these musty, dusty tomes are aggravating my allergies
What, there’s a pun-off going on again? Dang it, why didn’t you guys page me and let me know? The worse part: I know that I’m bound to miss the next one, too. I always check these things out when my participation is past-due.
Poor Locke, always missing a pull-off, er pun-off.
I wasn’t expecting this volume or type of responses, I’m truly sorry.
Let us turn the page, the past is prologue.
Time to turn over a new leaf? Or just book it out of here?
It’s time to shelf this discussion.
Never! We must not let anything (Dewey) Decimate or puns!
cant believe how cute Frigg looks :)
Best’s charisma must have, um, rubbed off on her.
I know, it’s shocking to note that she actually has girly eyelashes showing…
yea. not dignified at all.
ROW ROW ROW
One of the Byrons in Panel one looks like he’s rocking out. XD
Why do the golems have giant jockstraps? The star on the belt even makes the top look like… you know :P Are they like Sex Machine and have their main weapon hidden there?
I never noticed that before… Do ya spend a lot of time staring at the crotches of statues?
I checked the previous strips, they just never were that visible yet :P
Don’t watch “The Iron Giant” too closely, then.
I assumed that the *ahem* straps were actually the housing for the gear/socket/motion system for the golems’ legs. They look a lot more like the swivel point systems on robotic arms in factories.
I wish I knew more technical terms for what that is >.<
The technical term for those is “Huge Cock”.
Someone has to.
Being shot at with lasers from giant robots makes Byron make non emo-faces. Hurray!
Only if they’re nake Greek-Roman-Hindu ones.
Actually I think that covers all the groups that actually sculpt naked females, or at least ones that aren’t pregnant?
They’re actually giant chastity belts. Just the elves doing their part to prevent robots from overrunning the world.
It’s not actually a jockstrap, it appears to me to be a pelvis analog, rather than being a solid piece of stone the golems appear to be made of five separate pieces, much like the Common Voltron.
Did you ever own any G.I.Joes as a kid?
It’s actually a fairly standard action figure set-up, if you look closely it’s actually a semi-circular extension of the torso and the legs connect with a sort of Ball-and-Socket arrangement…rubber-bands may also be involved.
So.. typically I hate payet.. but.. today I think he looks pretty awesome.. and he’s having way too much fun dodging all the pew-pew
I think that’s been Best’s main redeeming feature for me: he has so much fun doing what he’s good at.
The Byrons in the first panel should be made into avatar-type icons. :-)
I love Byron’s dry exposition / voiceover as he’s frantically dodging all the pew, pew, pew. Especially his reaction to Best’s music: “Really? *exasperated sigh*”
Makes me think he’ll be out of his funk soon. =D.
re: Top center panel: Thank you, Byron, for expressing what I’ve been thinking since Chapter 9…
The desire for Potion of Landing reminds me of that super-jumping scroll from Morrowind.
Well, to be fair, those things were useful for reaching that giant meteorite/moon before you should. Or climbing really tall towers that belonged to mages who wanted to keep you out. Or for traveling, provided you could fall in a deep body of water.
Otherwise you’d just make a player-character pancake.
I do love Byron..haha he’s more fun when he looks like..he’s having somewhat fun
I think I just found Best’s theme song. Has anyone ever heard “A Perfect Day”, from Freedom Call? First thing that came into my mind while hearing the song today was this strip, I just HAD to share it with someone!
Ok, so what I got from this strip is that Byron’s player watches Burn Notice, and Best’s player watches CSI: Miami.
Frigg= DEATH FROM ABOVE!!!
She fights for the Emperor, now?
No wonder she was with the nuns – she’s a Sister of Battle!
She must be from a chapter that the Angry Marines helped start.
Looks like rock beat paper.
Looking at the golems text, does it make anyone else think of French?
Why? Does it say surrender?
Also, Best, you forgot the shades, man. Come on.
Only thing I can say about this is that it’s FREAKING HILARIOUS!
Allan Dant: Please report to the front desk.
I am reminded of a DnD Lord of the Rings one-shot where the cave troll was hugely overpowered and the only way to do major damage was for the hobbit Merry to use himself as a cannonball and do a called shot to the troll’s nadgers. Since he was bloodied at the time, we called him a “bloody Merry”. After the shot, he saw under the troll’s loincloth and became a “dirty bloody Merry”.
I love this comic so much! :D
