“Who touched my dwarf?”
…No, I’m better than that.
I am going to point out that’s a nice up-tabard shot of Byron in the first panel.
What you did there, I see it.
You’re right. It would be small of you to comment.
It would certainly be a little cliche.
i’d keep this up but such puns are beneath me.
Indeed. You shouldn’t be so small minded!
It would appear that everyone is rather stumped for puns.
It seems we’re running short on them.
“Ahn”? Honestly, brings to mind Japanese anime schoolgirls, not Gravedust.
someone’s been reading too much tentacle rape.
sexual harrasement on frigg!
I guess the mirror room is intended to be literally and metaphorically reflective. Trying to realize and deal with their own inner turmoil.
Referring to the alt text this is more like a plot within a play within a dream within a holodeck. No inception tho.
Safeties are apparently off.
Safeties are always off
Especially when they’re on.
I agree, they probably are still in the same room, but they cannot notice each other.
It costs 200 coins to fire this dwarf for 12 seconds
HEAVY ARMOR GIRL IS CREDIT TO PARTY
LITTLE ELF IS MOVING!
Frigg is Heavy Weapons Guy
Byron’s backstory: FINALLY
Byron was a cute kid
Yeah, we know.
But srsly, it’s nice to see that Byron’s clothes grew and leveled up along with him. It’s like when you’re lvl 3 your rope morphs into an actual belt.
So at what level do his shoulders pop into existence?
The shoulder pads were looted later on from that robot-avatar thingie, they’re not a part of the original setup.
…Somebody help me
Somebody help me see
Now I feel it
Feel like I’ve been there
I didn’t need this
Somebody help me breathe…
I like the subtle indication of how the group has grown on Frigg, “My Dwarf”, “My Nerdy Elf”, “My Mad Dog Threat To Himself And Others” and “My Bony Blond Bitch”, this is serious progress here.
Anyone remember what they got up to when Syr’nj got drunk and vanished with Frigg?
(Why, no. I am not trying to fill your minds with Elf Princess on Paladin action. Shame on you for suggesting it.)
Didn’t we already run through this after the White Queen Incident?
Don’t forget “My Trisected Halfling”.
Wouldn’t that make Bandit a “Three-sixthling”?
No, because bandit is a gnome, not a halfling.
Of course, if it is, this also means that the players plugged in actually remember growing up in that world.
that or this is one of those phased quest dealies where they more or less walk you through a sequence of scripted events with the ‘zomg kill some things’ to keep the player interested.
Maybe they actually DID grow up in the world.
The whole “1 day outside is 100 days inside” kind of deal. A game that involves growing from childhood doesn’t seem that hot though.
Maybe those “dreams” etc. are a trick to enforce those backstories as “memories” on their minds.
I notice a lack of Syr and Best with Frigg and Gravedust…
Hmm. If Byron has regressed to before he became a berserker, perhaps he can rebuild his personality to omit it.
His true love has to go back in time to see his deal with the demon beast so she’ll know how to save him in the future!
I am guessing that they’re all still in the same room. It’s just that they can’t all perceive each other. So the thrown axe still cut Gravedust – because he was still there.
It was all done with Mirrors
Not to mention smoke.
Now you’re thinking with Mirrors.
Little Byron, how adorable!
Check this: 4 out of the 5 Byron avatars are deer in headlights/eyes wide in horror. It is his “thing”
Oh god! I keep seeing Stitch lost in the woods calling for help. *sniffle*
Family means no one gets left behind, or forgotten.
Really, my dad always taught me that family means get the f— out when he has the ladies over or get the belt.
Now I’m sad.
It’s okay, boy-Byron. Go ask that helpful Smoke Monster for directions!
*insert echoing sounds of a receipt printer*
Byron the Boy Wonder!
He’s an ax-man.
A rather insidious trap, I must say. Forcing those who enter to reflect on their darkest moments is quite effective against those with broken minds and tarnished pasts.
You mean just about every PC backstory that’s ever existed? Because that’s pretty common.
-shrug- Well it is said there is no great achievement without great struggle. Presumably, someone who had a dandy and wonderful life with no pitfalls would have no drive to go out adventuring.
Is it odd, then, that most of the PCs in my campaigns all seem to be psychopaths (that, or religious nuts, but mostly pyschopaths)? If I allowed them to reflect on their tarnished paths they’d never stop!
Gravedust intellect is so sharp he just cut himself!
I was at a party once where everyone got their own dwarf, . . . but I will not elaborate!
Frigg referring to Gravedust as her dwarf is kind of a “d’awwww” moment
Hey, sorry to bug you here, but I’m not sure how else since the Forum link is broken…any reason I got a vague weird e-mail with profanity that appeared to come from T via the Tea Room? I don’t want to actually reply to the message. Perhaps something has been hacked?
Yep. My guess is everyone registered on the forums got that email. I emailed Phil Kahn about it. The hacking, not the email. I suppose I could have mentioned that, but I assumed that everyone registered got it.
They seemed to have suborned T’s account, which is why I emailed Phil.
Long story short: No one else needs to notify Phil, as I am sure I’m not the only one who sent him word.
