New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Took me a while but finally do I see what you did….thar.
And we’ll get to see what lies beneath soon enough… besides a plot device.
Dat plot …
And yes, I sense a repeating theme here…
This is the only kind of “gossg” I approve!
Bert is taking this turn of events surprisingly well….
Maybe he’s retreated into his happy place, with the farmer’s daughter (before the sicko dad showed up).
Nobody in Oglaf stays dead too long. Which makes me think we should be seeing an apprentice resurrection shortly … ! *I can only hope*
I just read some QC before coming to this site! I love your Gravatar!
The bigger they are…
The more they still accelerate at the same rate as everything else we tossed off this cliff?
You still need to account for air resistance.
You’re more likely to survive if you’re smaller though. Extensive statistical data suggests that domestic cats often survive terminal velocity falls.
Indeed, if a cat falls out of a window in a skyscraper onto concrete, the death rate increases with height up to nine stories, then begins to decrease again.
At nine stories the cat reaches terminal velocity (in a non pun manner) – and thus the impact speed has maximised. Further distance gives the cat more time to right itself in the air, but doesn’t increase the velocity, so the death rate falls as you go above 9 stories.
The way you say this, it sounds like there’s been a study on it that involved tossing cats out of skyscrapers…
That <study was amusing, but suffered a bit from selection bias, because they only got data from vets. If a cat falls badly from below 9 stories, as well as falling properly, you might still take him to a vet. If a cat falls badly from above 9 stories, I think it’s likely your chance of getting a pressure washer and a new cat rather than a vet goes up.
Lol, I wonder how many cat haters signed up for assisting in that experiment. Do you yell “fore” when throwing a cat from 9 stories up, or is it more of a “heads up” situation?
Yes, but more mass means the kinetic energy will be greater and thereby impart a more forceful impact.
Sucks to be them.
Well, the only way to go from here is up… Or not.
Holy carp, I’m Bandit from the Christmas story! Awesome!
We should totally start a club.
It’s like Three Dirty Dwarves, only more of em’
Panels 3 & 4: Okay, and I thought MY dish sponge was getting nasty. At least I don’t have tiny little men tossing each off the mold layer on top.
As per the SRD, falling damage caps out at 20d6 damage, at a rate of 1d6 per 10 feet.
a lvl 20 fighter at full health can STILL survive a fall from terminal velocity. make what you will of that, but i have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of that big guy in the future.
Actually, in DnD you fall at the same speed every round, so you’re technically at terminal velocity the moment you step off the cliff.
Given this, we must assume that the increased damage from falling large distances is not due to the speed of the impact, but instead some sort of mental or psychological trauma caused by the act of falling itself. The experience of falling is so harrowing that the longer you fall for, the more damage you take. However this damage only gets counted once you stop moving – suggesting that your brain is too traumatised to to work out that it should be scared until the experience is over.
It’s kind of like the reverse of the roadrunner thing, where you only start falling once you realise you should be falling.
Indeed they can Taxil. In fact, here’s a great article that offers a shortcut to determining your survival rate from a fall.
Wow, oldschool. Falling damage is d10s these days. :)
Well, you mean “in 4e”, not “these days”. These days more people play Pathfinder than 4e (at least according to book sales), which still uses d6, so it isn’t really “old school”.
Bert looks exactly like Best when he’s tied up and falling down…
And so do I!
You’ve experience being tied up and falling?
I have. Abseiling.
Have a nice fall, see you when I’m tripping.
What’s Heathcliffe got to do with it? Speak up! my hearing is bad!
These dwarves must not be cave-adapted; they only throw up!
If you look at the last panel it looks like Braggadacio has turned into some sort of eldritch creature with five hands instead of a head, as he desperately attempts to claw at something for purchase…or possibly to eat on the way down.
Spontaneous Eldritch Transformation. See your doctor today about it.
Mr. Fingers from Goblins, anyone?
AGHHHHHHH! *breathe* AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
That thing was creeeepy!
And now I can’t unsee the resemblance, THANK you for that.
good reference. Mr. Fat Fingers, he is.
And how are we to know your women and children from your men? THEY ALL HAVE BEARDS.
The men have hairy ears.
Oh god I hope not.
How are they going to eat the cliff if they threw them so far away from it?
The comic was brought to you by Cliffbar.
That cliff face looks amazingly like the granite countertop in my Mom’s kitchen.
By my estimation based on possible rotation and inflation of centered mass Brags should bounce back after the next panel.
And then we find out that the devs just wanted a pop culture reference and there’s a mud puddle at the bottom of the cliff.
Killing women and children ? When did that happen ?
Likely just prior to when the Savasi ‘migrated’ from their original mountain home to the desert.
Is it just me or does the big guy look like a balloon in the Macy’s day parade?
and I’m a troll
“Eat cliff, ya bastards!”
