Re: 2014/07/04 - Bubble Bubble

What Rick said. Order of the Stick did a similar thing with their heaven, but the Lotus Hotel is similar enough that the comparison is valid. It's the ultimate "Time flies when you're having fun." As for why they haven't dealt with his Fate yet, well, the celestial beings experience time subjectivel...

Re: 2014/07/02 - Locate Planet Bomb

The reason the original panel says "meanwhile" is to indicate that the fourth wall is moving now to view the "Cosmic Nerds" having a discussion. Specifically, we are being told that, at that moment, Great Kitsune is explaining the consequences of allowing the spell to work like that are, and thus wh...

Re: 2014/05/14 - For Love And Justice

I'm not entirely sure why, but I feel like it would feel more natural to just have the class be called "avenger." It's as though there's some evil version of the class they needed to name the "black avenger," which just doesn't make sense to me. But I digress, it is a small nitpick. Also, obligatory...

Re: 2014/05/12 - She Loves Me

My goodness, I walk away for 24 hours and the comments section explodes. Let's see here: With regards to Baily being an avatar, as I have said previously, just because Pete groomed King to be a Dark Paladin, that doesn't mean there aren't other classes that he could take advantage of. For instance, ...

Re: 2014/05/12 - She Loves Me

Quite a few saw it coming. My prediction, although spoilered to keep it hidden from those who dislike speculation, was there. That does not make it any less dramatic. I admit that I wish there had been a few more panels of discussion first, but I suppose that's the "rushing" through the arc that's b...

I've been expecting something similar as well. It seems rather likely he's given up on the Dark Paladin in favor of something else, considering that either dog doesn't meet the class requirements.

Re: 2014/05/02 - Heraldic Majesty

Did I mention that I don't really take any of the Cosmic Nerds' sides? I mean, what would happen at the end of the game? What happens to the loser's avatar if his/her job is done? Would the loser's avatar die? That was kind of implied in the trial in heaven infodump. At least avatars dying was a th...

Re: 2014/05/02 - Heraldic Majesty

Well, at least we now know that Baily's actually getting dragged into this, so we can put the speculation to rest (and by rest, I mean: "to work on other things"). Of course, there's always the "it was just a dream" sequence, but I don't really feel we're going that way.

Re: 2014/04/30 - Contractual Obligations

There have been very, very few times that my jaw has literally dropped, but this is one of those times. I was literally gawking open-mouthed at the end of today's comic. I might just be reading this wrong, but it seems to me that Pete is there for Baily. He tells King that he's right. It's possible ...

Wow, the facial expressions we've seen lately just keep getting better and better. This was a really great-looking comic where the art was concerned, and the plot twists weren't bad either :)

Re: 2013/08/19 - Tearing Down The House

Also the gods don't apparently have to reside in their avatars body to walk among mortals but i'm going to assume that they can only transform into humans. As far as I see there's not enough evidence to say that Dragon is really shy, so if she could transform into a dog i think she'd have done it b...

Re: 2013/08/16 - Gift Of Tongues

Also if they really had an issue with both of them dating Peanut they would have had this talk a long time ago. The dialogue makes it look like they're only doing it now because the loss of their powers is risking that they might lose The Game... more selfishness. :x It depends on how you look at i...

Re: 2013/08/12 - Dragon It In

Choose Tarot! She's a dog and you can actually relate to her! Do you mean to imply that there is anyone in existence that Peanut can't relate to? :lol: Tarot said this was about The Game but then turns it into a relationship thing. I agree with a few others that this was sparked by whatever Pete is...

Re: 2013/08/12 - Dragon It In

I've been expecting a "I think we should see other people" ending to this arc ever since Tarot declared that she and Peanut needed to talk. I mean, honestly, have the words "We need to talk" ever heralded a good thing? That being said, this I did not expect...this was rather sudden. Dragon looks exc...

Re: 2013/05/24 - Woe Woe Woe

I must admit, this took an entirely different turn than I expected. Pete came, stated a fact with a minimum of gloating, and made no demands of King before he left. He's getting subtle. If we believe Pete, he will forfeit after a year even if, somehow, he gets King to join him. I suspect this can on...
