As of today, Guilded Age is now updating five times a week!
Is your body ready?
Fiery investigation reveals shit tonight
So this is what a server shutdown looks like…
Gravy’s getting clued in on the way the world ‘really’ works. He doesn’t have the language to descibe it yet, but somewhere within his ‘character’s’ consciousness is the knowledge of the outside world (the body within the tank).
Panthaaron, commenter on the previous strip, predicted this.
Guess that makes me a psycho too. Wait, I’m getting something… Oh, that’s psychic. *sigh* Shawn Spencer I am not.
I wonder if E-Merl knows any alternative spells that can do the trick. Orison of dankness? Word of wetness? Mouth of moisture?
I once played an MMO in which the warriors had an ability where they could deal massive damage by sacrificing a portion of their health, and a high level version would leave them with exactly 10 HP. I played a healer, and my high level healing spell was called “Water of Life.” I made sure the warriors would give me advanced notice before they used their abilities, so I’d be ready to turn the firehose on them.
Bigby’s Verbing Noun
This is the digital age remember… You could have the tweet of sleet.
No, E-merl, these ghosts are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Making your way in the cult today takes everything you’ve got.
Heroes bust in and smash the idols, your body’s left to rot.
Didn’t you wish you got away?
Sometimes you’re gonna ghost
Where nobody knows your name.
And your temple’s now a-flame!
You wanted to be on a killing spree
Causin’ trouble all through the game.
But you get to be where nobody knows your name.
You want to go where people know
Madness comes all the same
But you’ve got to ghost where nobody knows your name.
Guilded Age is filmed before a live studio audience.
Slow clap? Slow clap. *slowly claps*
Huzzah, that’s TWO! By Graiya, some day I’ll have a constellation.
Cantrip of Dampness…why did I think that did something else entirely?
we always referred to that spell as power word: moisten
I thought the Cantrip of Dampness began with “I have money.”
Okay, so the Good-cop, Dumb-cop routine didn’t work, but at least we got to burn s**t down. :D
They got killed, and yet they dare to wave their nihilist cr@p ? You sure got guts, ghosts … but think twice before Gravy decides to go Ghosts Busters on you, punk !
Believing in a coming apocalypse isn’t really nihilism… But it does sound fun.
Engaging in a contest to see who could would have the highest body count at the end would amount to nihilism, I think. I think it’s a fantasy football type thing.
Nihilism means believing in nothing though, you can’t use it as a motivator.
No, no. Maybe I’m wrong but as far as I’m aware Nihilism can mean quite a few different things. The core element is destruction (progression towards nothingness), or beliefs that ultimate destruction is the most desirable or even ‘right’ outcome. This could be a conviction ranging from regarding just oneself (“I’m a bad person, suicide is the right thing to do for me”) or some part of the world (“nuke the people, save the whales!”) or the entire world (“let it all end in hellfire!!”). These cultists’ spin on it seems to be more like “it’s gonna end anyway, so let’s see who can make the most hellfire and spectacle in the process”.
Okay, you want to learn something about Madness? Fine!
Madness are an English ska band from Camden Town, London, that formed in 1976. One of the most prominent bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s 2 Tone ska revival, they continue to perform with their most recognised line-up of seven members.
Madness achieved most of their success in the early to mid 1980s…
That’s why I call my cultist temple “The House of Fun”
Do you make all of your cultists wear baggy trousers?
Does your temple have Dwarves, perchance?
I don’t mean to be rude or anything, but you can see right through this argument. Their words are really transparent!
Well, to Gravy, spirits are a bit opaque, but once he takes a shine to what their saying, it’ll all become clear.
MECHANICS NOTE: A character may make only one (1) concentration check each round. Often this means that they may either cast, or pay attention, but not both at the same time.
Am I missing something? Why is E-Merl smiling in the second panel?
E-Merl isn’t incompetent, he’s just pretending to be.
This would imply that he’s sabotaging Gravy’s investigation.
How sure of this are you?
Uhm no, wouldn’t it imply that Gravy’s argument going roughly “Since your temple is burning down, this is your last chance. Might as well tell us” is all part of a setup between Gravy and E-Merl?
Soooo, sounds like Dedalus has an even bigger problem on his hands than even he thinks he does. And if I’m interpreting things right, I hope they’re aren’t too many players with deactivated accounts.
HACK THE PLANET! HACK THE PLANET!
The NPCs are in charge of the asylum.
Good to see that the whole ‘SWIRLY EYES OF MADNESS* thing is still being rocked out by the gods. Honestly, you can not take a god of madness seriously if he cant get the swirly eyes right.
!!xE-Merlx!! and !!*Gravedust DesertHammer*!! hastily leave the building.
So… something doesn’t work here for me… or is this a new smartass-detector filtering me when I try to teach ahdok the meaning of nihilism?
Or is it just the Reply-function?
Doesn’t seem to be the reason. Okay, it’s a smartass-detector.
