I’d hope that’s enough restraint to hold Byron.
That wooden support beam is going to snap like a twig if they get him a-ragin’, but I have a feeling they won’t be able to get him to rage anyway.
PS, can someone PLEASE tell me how to set up a site to automatically generate gravatars for commenters who don’t have him, such a Amaster’s scipio above? I really want to implement it on my own webcomic.
I believe that’s where that ‘Get a Gravatar’ pic on the right comes into play.
I think he means “how do I set up wordpress to pick its random gravatars out of a folder of pictures I specify?”
I recall I have mine set up to provide random gravatars for ungravatared people, I’ll give it a poke tonight and see if that page comes with an option to choose the source for the random images.
All right. I can tell you in just three easy steps:
1) Make a folder with all your customized avatars, and title the folder something alphanumeric with no spaces for ease of use.
2) Upload this folder to the avatars directory on your server. This directory will be found in the images folder in the directory that corresponds the WordPress theme that you have active (it won’t work if you put it anywhere else).
3) In Comicpress Options, under the Posts & Pages tab, there is a dropdown menu with which you can select the avatar directory you just uploaded. Anyone who posts on your comments with an e-mail address that does not have a gravatar will have one of your custom avatars randomly assigned to them.
Bonus) Once a random avatar is assigned, it will stay assigned to that e-mail address until you switch avatar directories. So if you just want to shuffle them quickly for no reason, simply re-upload the folder with a different name and choose it under Comicpress Options. It may be possible to switch to another folder and immediately switch back to produce the same result, but I have never tested this.
Thank you, Phil! I will try this out soon!
This totally works!
Well, it seems like folks are going to be tied up here for a while. The fetters of fate tugged these characters into a strange place today, no?
Personally, I can’t wait for Byron to rock everything with heavy metal, but I worry he may bring down the house.
This was bound to happen, I knew they’d rope Frigg in for help, chainces are that they’ll need her caustic taunting, but will Syr’inj Lecter say what she wants?
I think the point where you’re using misspellings like “chainces” rather than actually making puns is the point where you’re officially tying too hard.
Seconded, if it’s not a word or a proper noun don’t use it.
Of course this means all I’ve gotten so far is a groan and a do-not-pass-Go, are we that pun-impoverished today?
… But, the misspellings always come out. Always.
YOU ARE SPITTING ON A PROUD AND NOBLE TRADITION. AND THE SPIT IS NOT TRADITIONAL.
Pun impoverished? No. Never that. Some of us have just been tied up with other things. When life starts chaining you to a non-internet capable desk, problems emerge.
Also, when it comes to puns, the whole point is that they are bad, shoddy, and elict groans (or start a pun war). There is no such thing as trying too hard.
I find that if you tie too hard, you start cutting off the circulation.
I’ve been roped into league of legends lately and I CAN’T STOP PLAYING. I feel kind of like Byron at the moment. I think I need to restrain myself and stop getting tied up in things that keep me from punning. >_>
LoL is even more addicting than WoW or Borderlands could ever hope to be. I had to uninstall it so I could continue making this comic.
No way! You can’t start putting rules around which puns are acceptable. With puns, the worse they are the better they are, so you’re essentially disqualifying the best of them.
Well what would you have me do, loaf around, grab some of the wurst puns and make a sandwich? Lettuce consider fully what you are suggesting here, in your drive to mustard more puns: Tomat a sandwich I’ve already got all the ingredients here by those standards.
He’s been posted, with links.
Not when Frigg plays with him
I don’t know why, but the second panel made me burst out laughing.
I like Frigg in chainmail – it’s like her evening look.
Is that… Byron’s chainmail she’s wearing?
Good call, it probably is.
In the past she’s been wearing chain under the plate, I suspect it’s hers.
I mean, they’re very different builds, and it looks like it fits her. They’ve an entire guildhouse of equipment including robot automatons, a suit of chain isn’t that expensive.
he will be held by the chains of love or he will get the hose again.
I can help but wonder what is going throguh Gravedust’s mind.
I current guess is: “Why am I required here again?”
I think that’s his Huh. More non-Savasi activities that make absolutely no sense at all look.
Yeah, he does look somewhat incredulous but I think you’re off on the specifics of what he’s thinking. I’m thinking what he’s considering is something along the lines of, “Well, let’s get this bad idea over with.”
This is what I get for forgetting to check the comic until noon….
So, Anonymous Coward, now you see that references will always triumph because puns are dumb.
Sir, that is heresy. Puns are sacred.
Ha, Thank you Frigg for being the in character voice of the commenters <3
It’s for the Best?
I had no idea he was into that sort of thing.
He’s into every sort of thing.
Do you think Byron thinks that all the time? Like every time he goes to the bathroom he wonders if somebody’s scrying on him. I know I wonder about that.
No, if he’s making coffee or tea, and he drops the bottle of milk out of the fridge, he doesn’t worry about anyone scrying on him then.
There’s no use.
I saw what you did there. I lactose kind of things.
adhok, I would tip my hat to you if I had a hat. I must disagree with your assessment that such scrying would be of no use though. I’m sure someone could make money off of random scry crystal balls. Rather like that “chat with random people” thingie whatsit we have whose name I can’t recall at the moment. Set it up in pubs and charge by the minute!
ahdok, my admiration for your stealth humor temporarily screwed with my ability to spell people’s usernames
I wouldn’t worry about it, given that I often use this as my user icon.
DO YOU SEE~!?
Hmm nice. Frigg always gets me to laugh. And Byron seems realy tied up in the moment. This whole situation is bonded to go wrong.
I’ll restrain myself from adding to this.
Don’t you mean “bound to go wrong”?
No, he was being a pundant.
Don’t you mean a Pundit?
Darn you, I NEED to POOP and I can’t stop thinking about this!
Uh. That went to the wrong thread.
Your Fine-Thread Linen Britches?
Chains We Need.
What’s that, Byron?
Well, you should have thought of that before I chained you up…
I love Frigg’s pose in panel 3. “Say no more! *nudge nude* *wink wink*”
Oh, we all know what is in your mind. heh.
Wow, ok This random gravatar rocks!
Biggles! Fetch…THE CUSHIONS!
Gravedust’s eyes say it all.
Ha ha, oh, Picard, eyes can’t speak. That’s what mouths are for.
Oh, I thought mouths were for…nevermind.
Eye see you left him speechless.
Helpless and chained with Frigg on the loose with weapons… I don’t think I’d be as calm and composed lol
Well, guess Frigg’s not so much of a closet domme… Best not to let Rachel find out about this.
Who wants to bet that this will end in the group rushing to save the newbies, then going for a victory party and leaving Byron chained up all night?
Since noone has said it yet… I love Syr’ing’s expression in the last panel. Somewhere between contempt and disgust at mixing pollenation and caning.
Surprise trouble for the upcoming scene: Frigg accidentally breaks the beam with her newfound Yellow Lantern powers.
When I first opened this page, I got all excited
cuz I thought the old artist was back, not cuz of the content! GEEZ.
Wow, if I knew that chains were available in bulk, I’d have gotten into S&M long ago. You know how pricey that stuff is?
Rope’s better, chains can scrape and chafe if not carefully maintained.
But well-oiled chains don’t lead to rope burn.
Actually, if you treat the rope properly, boiling them beforehand, letting them dry, then taking the time to burn off stray strands, they’re very comfortable and don’t lead to rope burn at all.
I wish berserking was more of a drug than disease. Then we could have scenes of Byron sweaty, pale, trying to resist one more hit of the ol’ bloodlust.
But hey, this is good too. Think of all the Hannibal references we can mine from it! And that’s not even counting the chain and bondage puns we’ll milk out of this by the time all’s said and done…
This reminds me of some of the unfortunate things I’ve seen in Goldshire on Moonguard. Gaaaaughhh.
Goldshire on Moonguard and you still have your sanity (seemingly) in tact?! Lucky you.
Granted, I wish Steamwheedle Cartel even had RP on it anymore. Alas, you almost never, ever see it. D:
Same with Blackwater Raiders, thoudh I stopped playing years ago so no idea if that has changed.
May actually check if Blizzard keeps offering me free week passes.
But yes back to the topic.
Goldshire, sort of like the Mos Eisley of Azeroth.
psh. you guys need to go to Jita. you think goldshire is bad.. >.>
Syr’nj wan’ts to tie you up; hawt!
Syr’nj invites Frigg; hawt!
Syr’nj invites Gravedust… things just got a little weird.
As usual, the gravatar is perfect.
Hahaha. Gravedust’s upraised eyebrow. “Well, I suppose I could see worse things. Like Frigg and Best again – naked. So, so horrifying.”
By the way: anyone else seeing Byron go zerk, escape and “negotiate” with the invaders?
My money says he wont ‘zerk out until he hears about e’rrybody else getting pwned, and he froths to the rescue.
Too…much… pun….-worthy…. MATERIAL!!!!
50 Shades of Graiya. D=
Okay, Frigg truly deserves her fangirls…
